How to stop overspending on Christmas ... next year

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I blew it again and have overspent on Christmas. I keep telling myself I will not do this again, but I keep doing it. What can I do? I am really bummed.
 
Answer: I appreciate the fact that you feel badly about overspending. But remorse is a poor substitute for responsibility. Unless you do something substantive to change your habits, you are very likely to do the same thing again next year. And again, you’ll feel badly about what you did — and owe just a bit more on your credit cards than you did this year.

Davis, OK.jpg

The Mayans obviously didn’t know much about sports.
Those guys, I guess they would have predicted the Jacksonville Jaguars were going to make it to the Super Bowl this year.
Back when they were making out their calendar, they picked Dec. 21, 2012 as the day when the world would end.
I mean, late December of all times.
Didn’t those dudes know that December is one of the busiest sports months of any calendar year?
Bowl games, NBA, Hot Stove talk in Major League Baseball and coaching changes in college football.

On Friday, in an announcement made by new Tech Head Coach Skip Holtz Jr., Rattay was hired as an assistant coach for the Bulldogs. He’s slated to coach the wide receivers.
