Do you ever feel like you’re being asked to tip increasingly more?
And what’s the proper etiquette these days —10%, 20%, or could it even be reaching 25%?
It seems we’ve reached a tipping point on tipping.
With the holidays near but inflation crimping some budgets, a good financial tip I can offer you right now on the matter is first decide how much you personally are willing to tip in different scenarios — before getting to the checkout, and stick to that amount. Don’t be pressured at the last minute to spend more than you’ve budgeted because little add-ons to your bill can make or break your budget in this season.
Need help deciding what that tip amount should be? The Wall Street Journal has a handy guide below that can be a starting point. Check out the other helpful articles from the news this week as well.

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a great weekend ahead.
