(KTVI) – The five-day holiday shopping extravaganza continues. It began on Thanksgiving and continues on Cyber Monday.

Before you go crazy, think about the long-term financial consequences.

Thomas Nitzsche from Clearpoint Credit Counseling Solutions stopped by with some easy, common sense advice for responsible holiday shopping.
