The holidays are a time of celebrations, family get-togethers, lots of good eating and cold winter nights, but for many of us, it’s also a time of financial stress and a visit from your good ole’ friend debt. Majd Maksad, from Status Money, is dishing some great tips to breeze into the holidays without debt so you can hit the new year ready to take on your goals.
