The College Money Network is helping you celebrate the holiday season with a giveaway! With the economy in a recession, many of us are cutting back on our holiday spending this year, but we still want to have just as much fun. Share your frugal holiday ideas (gifts, party plans, etc.) and earn chances to win one of the awesome prizes we’re giving away just in time for the holidays.
Later this week, I’ll be posting some of my frugal holiday ideas, and so will other CMN members. But for today, I’m sure you just want to hear about the giveaway!
