Created: 01/13/2014 9:01 AM WHEC.com

Most holiday shoppers came in at or under budget. That's according to BankRate.com which finds nearly 60-percent of us spent what we expected to over the holidays and a quarter actually spent less.
 
BankRate also finds Americans are more optimistic about their financial security, reporting they're feeling better about debt, job security, net worth and their overall financial situation.  
 
They're not as happy with their savings, but that's improving.
