The Dime Roll: Tips for Surviving Awkward Thanksgiving Conversations

November 17, 2017

Well, we're less than a week out from Thanksgiving—which means that the 2017 holiday season is officially upon us now. Even though Starbucks already released its iconic holiday cups and the mall has already decked the halls with boughs of holly (see what we did there?), let's not forget to give thanks for and with our friends and loved ones next Thursday. 

And once you're done gorging on turkey, football, and the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade (or, let's be honest—even before all that), feel free to peruse the latest and greatest we've got for you on The Dime. First up: five tips to get you started on saving toward that end goal—whether it's an emergency fund, a down payment on a home, or even next month's holiday gifts.

Speaking of the holidays, we're also coming to the table this week with some delicious recipes and ideas that'll take your next party to a whole other levelat least as far as adult bevvies are concerned. Don't worry: we've even got something to win over the Grinch in the group (hey, everybody's got one).

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
