Christmas is a little over 2 weeks away and I STILL haven't purchased any gifts. I am keeping it small this year and only giving gifts to very close friends and family. Part of the problem is that I have no clue what to give anyone. I'm so bad when it comes to shopping for others. When it comes to myself, I have no problems figuring out what to get me.

While I try to figure out what to buy, check out some of the posts I've enjoyed this week:

Mr Tire has poor customer service and SingleMa is never going there again. You have to read this one to believe it.

My Money Blog
advises to use your inactive credit cards at least once a year. Find out why.

Being Frugal presents 7 Savings Strategies. This is part of the M-Network 12 Days of Christmas - Personal Finance Style. Be sure to check out all of the articles.

J from Budgets Are Sexy finally got his wedding pictures. Check out what it took to get them.

I participated in the
Carnival of Personal Finance, Cyber Monday 2008 Edition hosted by Mighty Bargain Hunter. My post, Credit Score Checkup, was included in the roundup.

Hopefully, your holiday shopping is going better than mine.
