Happy Holidays! 2012 is treacherously close. Are you ready? counting down? I know I am.
I've started making personal goals for 2012- yes goals, not resolutions. Personally, I don't make new year's resolutions because I'd rather implement changes NOW instead of perpetuating bad habits until January 1st.
One of the goals I recently created is to cut back on my spending by 50 percent (a daunting task, I know). Since I'm not exactly Suze Orman, I reached into the blogosphere for some help. In my explorations, I found some useful and interesting personal finance posts for Bon Vivant + a Budget readers who want to save money, spend wisely or get out of debt in the new year.
