Is Shopping for a New Checking Account on Your Holiday To-Do List?

What’s left on your holiday to-do list? From purchasing gifts, decorating, or finishing up projects around the house, your list can have a variety of different things on it. As all of these things cost money, it’s an ideal time to check in with your finances and your checking account.
