T’was the day before Christmas and all over the land,
Folks were wrapping up shopping and finishing holiday plans.
The stockings were hung by the Christmas tree with care,
In hopes that many presents soon would be there.
The children have submitted their requests for knick-knacks
While you perform a budget balancing act.
Bills have to be paid,
Christmas comes every year.
It’s getting more expensive to spread holiday cheer.
When out of the clutter,
There arose some good chatter.
You spring to the Internet
And tune into the matter.
Away on the keyboard you type in a flash,
To find ladies say celebrate this Christmas with cash!
They share ways to handle money.
Things helpful to know.

But not an excuse to blow.

But tips on managing your money.

You knew in a moment this wasn’t a trick.
