The holidays are a wonderful time of year but can also be really stressful. One of the biggest culprits of that stress is money. Every year, without fail, we hear those around us (often ourselves), complaining and worrying about money. While there are financial surprises we can’t plan for, the holidays should not come as a surprise: They happen every single year. If you follow this checklist, you can minimize the stress you will experience during the holidays and eliminate money stress going forward.
