How Much...

How much would you ladies say you've spent or will spend on Christmas this year? Reason I ask is because I always feel like we spend way too much.. but maybe we don't.. maybe we are just in the normal range.

  • I don't really keep track but I assume it is in the thousands.

  • We only spend what we can earn making and selling Christmas cookies. That's where we get our spending money for the holiday nd it varies.

  • We have 4 kids and we also buy for our parents/grandparents/siblings/nieces/nephews on both sides. We have spent over $3,500, the majority on our kids. I spent over $1500 on black friday alone. We still have shopping left.

  • We buy for our 23 and 20 year olds, 5 nephews (15-10 years) and my parents. Many years we do not give gifts to each other (we both also have Christmas week B-days), but splurge on 1 big item or a nice vacation. This year we are exchanging. The amount spent varies.
