Column: Who's up for a challenge? Plus, holiday safety tips

-by Bonny MacIsaac

    As we are getting ready for the upcoming holidays, I have decided to throw this out there since a lot of our focus is on finances and what we can afford to be spending on those gift lists we so thoughtfully made out. That New Year financial hangover that some people find themselves experiencing is not fun!
