Operation: Don’t Go Broke is devoted to bringing readers helpful tips on ways to save in college.
Don’t start out the new year in the red. Avoid over-spending this holiday season by giving gifts that are thoughtful and affordable. The key is to think of all the things that make that special someone tick. What are their interests, hobbies, favorite color, sports team? What are they into? Pick something that’s sure to put a smile on their face. Just remember, it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
