Fight FOMO and Overspending as a Couple
For millions here in the United States, the floodgates will open and if it’s anything like years past we’ll see more than $50 billion dollars spent. Just for one weekend.
Enormous amount for sure. And around 31.8% use credit cards to pay for holiday shopping. There’s a very good chance there are couples and families who will mis stheir budget and overspend.
That can be a recipe for financial disaster.
But it doesn’t have to be.
