Holiday parties and gatherings are coming up, and many feature a fun twist on traditional gift-giving. Rather than purchasing individual gifts for everyone, families and companies have started to instead participate in “White Elephant” gift exchanges, which are less personalized, but also much less costly!
Are you stuck for ideas on what to get for your next White Elephant gift exchange? Read below for some low-cost presents that will be a hit. The trick is to think of presents that could conceivably work with ANYONE in your group – so gender- or size-specific presents aren’t necessarily the best idea.

The day after Thanksgiving has long been known as the busiest and best shopping day of the year. Retailers of all sizes promote “amazing” deals that are supposedly better than any other time. Traditionally, shoppers have really bought into these deals with many hitting the stores in the wee hours of the morning on Thanksgiving night to try and save a buck. Last year, in fact, retailers pulled in $7.9 billion from 77 million in-store shoppers on Black Friday!
But, is the stress and crowd fighting really worth the money you save? Here are some reasons that staying home on Black Friday may be your best bet.

There are few things in life more exciting than buying a car. In terms of transactions, it’s one of the largest most people will ever engage in.
For buyers, there are plenty of factors to consider.
What kind of car to buy is usually near the top of the list, along with the best place to buy it. And of course, the cost is important – but many people don’t stop to think how time factors into this question. Specifically, knowing the best time to buy a used car is important. The same thing is true for anyone who wants something brand new.
Knowing the best time to buy a new car or a used car can help a person capitalize on the best deals out there. Here’s some advice on the best times of the year for buyers to find those can’t-miss deals, as well as tips on how to apply for a vehicle loan and get the best payment arrangement possible.
Like it or not, life is full of surprises and it’s not always the good kind. Maybe you’re laid off from your job or have an accident and end up in the hospital.
Most all of us, at some point or another, will find ourselves in the midst of a life emergency, and though we all try to put money aside for the unexpected, we may still end up needing extra cash to help us get by. Nobody wants to go into extra debt but sometimes we don’t’ have a choice. So, what makes the most sense financially- a credit card or a personal loan?
