The holiday season can certainly pose a challenge for a budget. Join us for On Your Money as our guest financial capability specialist offers tips for staying in budget while finishing last-minute holiday preparations. We also look at the value of setting a budget in the New Year – and maintaining one – and consider the value of financial education for children.
