Whenever I see those stupid “new car for Christmas” advertisements I get angry. My blood boils as the husband hands his wife some keys and a 72-month loan at 4.99APR. STOP. Don’t get your wife or husband debt for Christmas. Take whatever is left from your Christmas bonus (after taxes) and buy them something they need. Like an old truck.
