Tipping During the Holidays
Mon, 12-23-2013 - 1:28pm

Spouse, check. Kids, check. Your favorite co-worker (or five)—got them covered, too.

But there are a couple more stockings you haven’t stuffed yet. You still have to show your appreciation to the doorman, the housekeeper, the babysitter, the dog walker—you know, those folks who help your hectic life run a little more smoothly.

Knowing how much you should tip, however, always feels like a guessing game. According to CNN Money, much of the decision depends on how long you’ve used someone’s services, how essential the service is to you, the quality of service you receive and where you live (urban dwellers should expect to tip a little more).


Ah, tipping.  Who do you tip during the holidays? How much do you usually tip them?
