For the last few years we seem to have issues on how much to spend and what to get them...We have 3 kids and I am cutting back but he wants to cut back more. AT the moment I work 2 jobs so I am frustrated with what he wants to do!

Since the beginning of our marriage, I spelled out for him that Christmas was the only time I spend money, and after 38 years he has resigned himself to his seasonal fate! I have no budget for Christmas!!!!!! needless to say he hates the season, he turns into a scrooge!!!

I also start putting money back early on in the year so we don't feel so much of the pinch during the holidays. It is nice to be able to get your kids gifts and watch their little faces light up, but it is much more important to keep the peace in your family. The important thing is to focus on family togetherness. Christmas is not supposed to be all about the gifts anyway, although many of us are guilty of focusing way too much on that part of the holiday. maybe one big gift that the entire family can enjoy. Something that will bring you all together. Then a few smaller gifts for each child. this way you keep peace with hubby and encourage more family time. Good luck!
