One response to “How to Spend Responsibly This Season

  1. Christmas definitely brings out the materialism in people. Although, I’ve noticed that you can buy some great gifts for under $5 in supermarkets and other places. You can save a lot of money if you combine this with coupons, cashback and rewards programs.
