On you kid/s for Christmas? How old are they? I feel like I went overboard and am considering returning some stuff or saving for a later time to avoid her expecting a ton each year.

Oh man, I really do not know.



I typically but throughout the year, so I'm not so overwhelmed AND broke this time of year. It usually depends, every year is different.

We haven't finished our shopping yet, but it won't be more than $150 per kid if we go by our list. Ours are almost 4 and 2. They're getting bikes this year, otherwise we wouldn't be spending that much. We've gone way overboard in years past,so we're trying to tone things down from now on, especially since they have birthdays in January and October where they also get gifts.

I don't have a specific budget set but I don't want to go over $1000 total for kids, family members etc. Kiddos are 11,7, 4,4 :D

In previous years, I spent over $1000 on my one kid. I've since toned it down and am only spending about $600-$700. (baby steps for me). I've spent about $450ish so far, I think.
I am ordering a train/lego table for him, so I hope to not exceed $200 for that. I'm trying not to emphasize so much on the gifts at Christmas, b/c he gets stuff all year round.

My son's first birthday is on Christmas. It makes it hard. Whereas normally we may have spent $300 on each occasion, we can really only afford to spend $150 for birthday and $150 for christmas. So one bigger thing for each occasion and a few small things to go along with it.
