What are you doing for the holidays?

Still got some last-minute holiday shopping to do? Junior Achievement is sharing some spending tips for teens this season:
Start saving early. The holidays come around the same time each year, so plan ahead. Put aside a little bit of cash each month and buy presents all year round so that you won't be surprised at the end of the year.


Set a budget as a family. You don't have to worry about not getting a good enough present for a loved one if you've already set a price limit with each other.


Make a list and check it twice. It's easy to go over budget and spend more than you anticipate. Make sure you know how you'll be paying for each of your gifts and be sure to bring your list with you on your shopping trips to hold yourself accountable.
Got it? Good. Have fun out there!
