If your home is anything like mine, the holidays can be a time to indulge in a little good-natured consumerism. We all know it should be more about memories and less about money. But we also know that togetherness brings heftier grocery bills and spendy-er shopping hauls.

So, if the news that retail sales came in lower than expected for November catches your eye, your concern is a natural reaction. When you see monthly updates on retail sales, remember those reports look at national trends, which can be affected by many factors.
