  • I agree to spend on the new baby for nessecities. Your other children are only 2 and 3, if I read that right. Still really too young to know what is going on. They will be happy with the amount of gifts they get, even if you only get each 1 or 2 items. (and a few from santa if you do that) My kids get so much from other family, I try not to get them too much. But Craigs list is a great place to start. Also kids consignment or second hand shops are great. I buy lots of clothes there (like Once Upon a Child, if you have one in your area). I find their prices on furniture to be too high, but it's good for clothes. Try Ebay too and your local paper for furniture items.

  • Perhaps spend money on your little one getting things that are necessary and cut back on spending unnecessarily for the holidays.

  • I love craigslist and the goodwill you can find amazing things for a fraction of the price they cost new.
