If you've had enough conspicuous consumption this holiday season, consider giving the gift of financial savvy.
Skip the chocolate Santas and the big
TVs; instead get your family some stocking stuffers that might just put
them on the road to financial security. They could be the gifts that
keep on giving.
Here's a list to get your creative juices flowing:
1 A Piggy Bank
Encourage the savings habit by giving your kid a piggybank. No kids?
get one for Dad. Unlike women, men have few places to store loose
change. So help your men tidy up and try a pig. You can get a
fine-looking one from Child to Cherish for $19 in a variety of colors.
