With the pressures of buying gifts and entertaining, it can seem downright impossible to get finances in order during the holidays, but it’s not impossible. If you think money management is a chore, you are not alone. According to a recent Harris Poll on behalf of SunTrust Bank, over 40 percent of Americans say they feel pressured to spend more than they can afford at the holidays and 70 percent say gifts are their biggest holiday expense! As well nearly 70 percent (69 percent) of Americans said they would skip exchanging gifts this holiday season if their friends and family agreed to it.
