Christmas is a time for fun, family and giving. Unfortunately for some, the spending associated with this joyous time of year was bought on credit.
According to Magnify Money, this past season Americans with holiday debt added $986 in debt on average and the pay off may not be until the next Christmas! The author of the article Nick Clements writes, “55% plan to take more than 5 months (to pay off the debt) or just make the minimum payments, which could extend the debt to 10 years or more.”
If we’re still paying off debt from last year’s Christmas, how can we enjoy this year’s Christmas?!
