If you’re like me, you’re about to plunk down a lot of cash over the next few weeks buying your nearest and dearest the perfect gifts.  Consider staying downtown and visiting your favorite local shops instead of heading to the nearest mall this year.

Or maybe between Black Friday and Cyber Monday participate in Small Business Saturday. You can even earn special benefits if you use your American Express!
