SPEAK OUT: Do You Plan to Spend More Money this Holiday Season?

How will your finances affect your holiday spending?


Two-thirds of respondents to a recent poll by the NPD Group said they “plan to spend about the same” as last year, while 10 percent planned to “spend more.”

With the economy and job situation still in flux for many families across the country, we want to know what families in Concord plan to do for holiday gifts in 2012.

Will you be more creative with your gifting? Use sites like Groupon, Living Social, etc? Brave the Black Friday sales? Cook or bake for family and friends?

We are spending much less, just one small gift for immediate family members, and cooking for extended family and friends. It makes life so much easier and more peaceful! And the holidays so much more enjoyable! Shopping local this year!
