Happy News You Can Use Year! Get a Handle on Your Finances in 2015! #video

It’s now mid-January and I am betting you got some of your credit card bills in with a chunk of money on them for holiday gifting. It’s often scary to see the bill with an extra $2,000 + on the balance due. The fast and easy way to take care of this bill is to pay in full. But what if you don’t have that kind of spare change in your savings? Good question and maybe this post and the video will help and offer you some solutions!

A recent Harris Poll says improving the family finances is second only to losing weight as the top New Year’s Resolution. Each year, consumer counseling agencies see a 25 percent increase in the number of people seeking help in January and February, and most of that traffic is propelled to their doors by holiday bills that haunt consumers like the ghost of Christmas past. In fact, for the 42.4% of Americans with credit card debt, one of the top resolutions each year is getting debt free. A recent Gallup poll indicated Americans expected to have just spent an average of $781 on gifts this Christmas; that’s up from $704 in 2013. Add that to the record $3.27 trillion of debt Americans collectively hold and household finances suffer from a mighty holiday hangover come January.

For those reading down this far, the reason why there is no “close” to this video is that the interview was cut short by needing to do another interview. So the plug was pulled just as I was heading into closing out. Sorry of the hassle.
