  • Your Cafemom profile says you have one 10 yr old named Juan. Does Juan need gifts or are the gifts for teens not listed under your profile?

  • Shop around, check out goodwills & thrift stores sometimes they carry neat things that are actually in decent condition..(sometimes) Toys for tots? i think that ends before teenage years though... id explain to them.. they are old enough to know when their families are struggling.. do you have other family members who can help get a little something for them? Your love is the most important thing! They know that!

  • First of all, get rid of the internet and spend that money on your child(ren). That is a start. Useless bills will cause you not to have holiday's like Christmas. Put your family and priorities first. :)

  • p.s. i think you are throwing ladies off by only having one child listed meaning people are assuming you only have one child.

  • teens like cash or Visa gift cards (seems more adult and credit card like)

  • Craigslist has good stuff...cheap. we actually got an ipod touch for 50 bucks and spent $4 on the glass to repair the cracked screen.
