  • We spent about $200 on our two sons and each other, and that's pretty much it.

  • We total spent less than $1000 including food and food presents. We have 10 kids and 10 grandkids so spouses also. This year we did do a few family presents though instead of individual.

  • We only buy for the kids. We do get my inlaws and parents something but its a $20 cap. I also send to my aunt but she spends an aweful lot on us for Christmas (Im talking pretty outrageous). But lets see. I have 5 kids and two grandkids.

    21 yr old dd $50
    son in law $25
    oldest son 18 yrs old $75
    17 yr old son $75
    10 yr old $125
    5 yr old $125
    4 yr old grandson $75
    2 yr old granddaughter $65
    4 adults@ $20 each = $80
    So grand total was $695 for Christmas this year. Really not that bad for us this year. Normally we go over $1000, but hubby had lost his job so we are just getting back on our feet after him starting a new job making less then he normally would.

  • Too much I guess but I truly believe we made good useful purchases. The kids only got toys that they really wanted and are useful. They also got bikes which they have been riding non stop. Plus they got new flat screens for their rooms which my husband rationalized by saying they all wear glasses so they need the big screens. lol
    I got a laptop and a bunch of clothes for school and some other stuff and hubby got clothes and a new coffee maker.
    We spent roughly $2500.

  • Oh I didnt even think about the food LOL. I got off easy. My mil did all the cooking so I think I spent about $75 on baking cookies for the cheerleaders in my daughters team. Also around $10 on coaches, and teachers, and my aunt forgot $50. We save all year though for Christmas.
