Most of us head into the holidays with the best of intentions. This year, we won’t eat so much, we’ll try to drink less and, by golly, we’ll stick to our budgets. Well, we’ll try…sort of. Unfortunately, avoiding overindulging at a time when so many types of excess are encouraged can be a real challenge.

Fortunately, there’s always a tipping a point where you can no longer deny that you’ve gone too far. You’ve overstuffed your stocking, your stomach and your shopping bags. Something must be done – quick. If you’re feeling sick about your spending, the best cure for that spending hangover is a switch to damage control.
