The holiday season is one of the busiest and merriest times of the year. But, it can also be the most costly, if we don’t stay within our budget. To avoid high costs, overspending, and throngs of holiday bargain shoppers, many of us started preparing months ago. We got our baking, decorating, and gift-buying or making for the people on our list done early. But, while we try to stay on top of things, it’s inevitable that we will forget something or someone.
