Give yourself a financial checkup

Put yourself—and your finances—at the top of your holiday gift list. Before you start shopping, give your finances a quick review on the MyMoneyCheckUp tool, a free online self-assessment tool from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling.

By answering questions about your budget, savings, home expenses and retirement, you'll have a better understanding of where you stand. Honest answers to this quiz may make you think twice about how much you spend on gifts this year.
