Just where did the month go? 2020 is just a stone’s throw away!
We’re celebrating one year as a community this week. How time flies! It’s been so great supporting each other here. Thank you all for making this community such a special place!
Is anyone still trying to nail down the right gift? We published our 2019 holiday gift guide last week. With Christmas quickly approaching, we know how challenging it can be to come up with some fun gift ideas. We partnered with some of our favorite brands to put together a list of things to give and share. Whether you want to gift an experience, score a deal on something you can wrap up under the tree or give yourself (and those you love!) the gift of financial peace of mind, we found something for everyone. Check out our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide now!

We’d love your thoughts on these threads:
