Frugality expert Sara Tetreault from GoGingham.com joins us to discuss five awesome ways to improve your holiday season without breaking the bank. If you’re gifting, entertaining, cooking….whatever, we have you covered this week.
Our roundtable of Paula, Greg and Len tackle emergency funds. Do you really need one? Greg says “probably not,” Len says, “Not until your debt is paid,” while Paula and Joe say “Absolutely, you need one.” It’s a fun discussion about a topic that the financial blogging community has probably beaten to death….
PK discusses stock valuations. Doug has trivia. Joe & OG make fun of Kiplinger headlines, read letters, and talk films (AND we have our first ever guest film review with Erin from BrokeMillenial.com!).
