The holidays can add more complications to the year-end effort to organize personal finances. But there are practical steps to take to avoid chaos.

Correction Dec. 18, 2006

In this radio story, personal finance columnist Michele Singletary says the limit for a 401k personal retirement account is $14,000. It's actually $15,000 this year. Michelle had noted that she was speaking of last year's limit, but it was removed from the radio story because of an audio-editing mistake.
