A new study about online shopping yields surprising results: the allure of cheaper online products might not be as compelling as shopping at traditional retailers. Should you change your shopping habits? We'll dig in to this topic with Paula Pant and special guest Chris Costello from 401k allocation experts Blooom. Plus we'll also tackle automation in finance. Are all of these lower fees across the board for investors fantastic innovation or do lower fees encourage investors to move more frequently than they should and ruin their results? Our contributors will weigh in with great (and surprising) opinions.

We'll also talk to Tanya VanCourt from Goalsetter.co. Tired of your children receiving gifts that will pile up alongside other unplayed-with toys? How about the gift of financial education. In time for the holidays, Tanya explains how Goalsetter works and tells stories about helping her own children learn about money and financial responsibility.

Besides that, we'll answer some questions from listeners, one via voicemail from Mike, who's planning on going back to school soon. Should he ditch his 401k plan? Our team will weigh in. Plus we'll answer another question AND we'll also bring Doug's trivia down to the basement and serve it up....this week in story problem form.
