What things do you have to be thankful for this year? Chances are, those things don't involve money.
While you may be focused on the heart more than the wallet this Turkey Day, consider being thankful for some of the money-related things in your life, too.
For example, you are entitled to three free credit reports every year -- one from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus. Also, because you can now set savings goals and keep track of your budget with just the swipe of a finger, you can add free money management smartphone apps to your thank-you list.
Are you acquainted yet with that good ol' American watchdog, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau? Be thankful for the federal agency; its mission is to keep you and your money safe from harmful financial practices.
If you have your credit card lost or stolen, thanks to laws in place, the most you'll be liable for is capped at just $50.
