Some last minute shoppers in Eastern Carolina are trying to stay out of the red by actually spending more green.
Experts caution that impulse buys can add up to massive credit card debt if you're not careful. Some shoppers become extra generous and spend beyond their means experts warn. But last minute shoppers we talked to say they enjoy the pressure of getting all their gifts at the last minute and still keep a close watch on their wallets.
Experts say to keep your last minute shopping on track bring a list with price limits for each person, buy gifts people can use and avoid display tables at the front of stores and at the checkout.
