This morning, I got a call from CitiBank letting me know they had spotted some strange activity on my business card. With economic times as they are, more people out there are getting more desperate, so be sure to ask yourself — and keep an eye on — what’s in your wallet.
The holidays are coming, and many Americans feel the temptation to buy all new things and decorate so life is beautiful. Our household is in no way exempt from this desire. How are you planning to have a greener Thanksgiving?
