Why Participate?

People overspend during the holiday season. A Coinstar survey showed that 77% of people surveyed expected to exceed their holiday spending budget, while only 37% will implement a post-holiday budget to recover from their overspending. This overspending habit gets people off on the wrong financial foot ahead of the New Year, which can have negative impact on their finances for years.
