“It’s how you think about the money thing” that drives your spending and saving habits. Michelle Singletary on Green Connections Radio

It’s the holiday season and every retailer is barraging you with ads and sales, in stores and online. You have your gift list, which may include clients and/or coworkers, as well as your family and friends. Hold on! Before you max out your credit cards (including gifts for yourself), listen to Michelle Singletary, personal finance columnist at The Washington Post and money guru. (You'll thank us later.)

How should you handle the holidays to be smart about your money? Listen to Michelle’s straight talk in this candid conversation with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson. It'll help you avoid paying the price later and even reduce burdensome debt.
