The holiday season always tempts me a little toward excess. It might be the year-end bonus or all the fun food in the stores or simply a desire to celebrate that sways me toward letting go and splurging a little more than we need to.
Over the last couple days I've been reminding myself that going "whole hog" this season is not going to help us meet long-term goals. "Eat, drink, and be merry" doesn't pay for that trip to Scotland. Since I want to eat, drink, and be merry in Scotland, I'm pulling my budget cap a little tighter on my head.
