Tips To Financially Survive The Holidays

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - With just a day left before Christmas, it's easy to loose your way - and your budget - hustling through stores for those last few gifts.

But Tylor Claggett, professor of finance at S.U., has a few tips:

- Write down everything you spend to make sure you don't go over budget. Without it, you could easily spend two or three times what you planned.

- Manage how you pay for items closely. A bit too much in one form or another could cause trouble down the line.

- Use a credit or debit card as a cash management tool - not necessarily as a source of credit. That can become very expensive.

- Pay most, if not all of your balance off as soon as possible.
