Now that Fall is in full motion, you and I know that we’re soon heading into the dangerous holiday season. Dangerous because your heart tugs at you to spend more than you should for gifts.
The holiday season is here, which also means it’s the time of year when there is a dangerous tug to splurge.
Yes, I know the calendar says it’s only Halloween. But this is the perfect time that you and I have a serious chat about your spending budget for the upcoming holiday season.
Teaching your children the pleasure of saving is going to be one of your hardest tasks, since chances are you do not enjoy it either. If you force them to save, they might grow to resent it.
As we head into the heart of the holiday season, I know many of you are focused on finding the right gift for loved ones, friends, and colleagues. I have a shopping tip that is guaranteed to make your
If you received some gift cards this past holiday season that you’ve yet to use, let me ask you a question: do you really want or need more stuff?
I know many of you have made donations to the various non-profits that are providing support and care for victims of the storms here and in the Caribbean, and the devastating earthquakes in Mexico.
If you’re honest, I am confident you would tell me that you wish you could spend less around the holidays. This has nothing to do with being a Scrooge. But you also know from experience, that you end up spending way more than you intended. Not necessarily because you were extravagant. Quite often it’s just the sheer number of people in your life that you exchange gifts with, that can add up.
I hope your friends and family hit the bull’s eye with your gifts this holiday season. But I bet there are many of you who received a gift card (or two, or three) that you don’t have a burning desire to use. As much as you love the sentiment of the gift giver, perhaps you just don’t need-or want-anything from the particular retailer your gift-giver chose.

I have the best ever Valentine’s Day gift for the love of your life. Life Insurance. Yes, I said life insurance. Before you call me unromantic (or something worse), hear me out.
Your money challenges are very personal. You may have a large credit card balance gnawing at you, while your best friend is awake at night worrying about being able to keep working through her 60s,
As we turn the corner into a new year, my biggest hope is that peace and happiness is in great abundance for each and every one of you and all those you love. You know from years of hearing me invoke “People First, Then Money, Then Things” that I think there should be no bigger focus than building and nurturing that peace and happiness. But there is also always room to focus on the ways you can continue to build financial security in 2016. The progress you make on taking control of your money will, after all, bring even more happiness and peace into your life.
As we are heading into the holiday season, I know plenty of kids will be receiving a check from a grandparent, aunt or uncle. So I want to review how every family with kids under 18 should handle financial gifts year round.
We’re heading into the dangerous money season. With the holidays quickly approaching it’s that annual time of year when the goodness of your heart can lead to very bad results: You overspend on gifts, dining out, or nights out on the town.
The car you're driving could be driving you into poverty, says Suze Orman. While lenders are relaxing terms and offering longer periods for borrowers to pay, Orman is sticking by her rules of the road.
Student loans are one of the most dangerous types of debt to have, says Suze Orman, who focuses this week's episode of "The Suze Orman Show" on ways to tackle the burden.

Whenever you feel fear about spending money that should be a sign that you're spending money you don't have to possibly even impress people you don't even know or like.
I call it the buy-it-now bug: We come down with it every giving season and feel the effects in January when we see our credit card statements.
