Fri, Nov. 23: Black Friday Tips

Air date 11/23/12

1 - Thousands of Mississippians are already out this morning looking for the best deals of the year on Black Friday. It's one of the busiest retail days of the year. Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, and Dr. Marianne Hill, the Senior Economist with the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning, says this is the most important time of the year for many retailers.
Joining us with some expert advice on how you can fulfill your holiday shopping list without breaking the bank is Chris Burford. Chris is the Financial Education Specialist with the credit counseling agency CredAbility. He's also the co-host of Money Talks here on MPB Think Radio. He tells MPB's Ezra Wall most people have an emotional reaction to spending money.

Helpful Hint: CredAbility has a household budget calculator HERE.

2 - It's Egg Bowl time for Ole Miss and State fans. MPB's Jay White joins us to talk about whether this year's match-up will be a GOLDEN egg, or a GOOSE egg. He talks to our Ezra Wall about the history of this annual tradition.

3 - Film critic Anita Modak-Truran talks about the start of the big holiday movie season.
