It seems like the holiday season (i.e. Thanksgiving, Christmas) comes way too fast every year, but this year you can take charge and start planning early. When you start early and taking advantage of the extra time, you can maintain your budget today and minimize or eliminate credit card debt and high interest rates in the future.
How do you start?
