Serious question....for my crazy for credits ladies...

Every year I adopt several children from the salvation army tree. How much should I spend on each child? What is the norm? I didn't know if I was overspending or not spending enough........ So that's why I want your opinion...

  • Do most people buy one gift or several? I always buy (for each child adopted): several toys, including a big gift (a bike or something), lots of clothes, a few book and a pair of shoes.

  • The salvation army tree is a tree with tags on them each representing a child that you can adopt for christmas. It's kind of like toys for tots, but you actually are buying for one child and the tag has their interests, clothing sizes, etc.

  • Last year, I spent approx $250 per child. Is that too much or too little?

  • I also try and hit the sales so that I can get as much as possible for that $250. But, if I'm overspending, then I could spend a little less and adopt more children (angel tree tags).

  • I'm not trying to toot my own horn or anything. I'm just wondering if I should spend less per child this year and adopt more because of the economy......
