It's been a VERY tough year for everyone financially. The economy has affected everyone, I understand and appreciate that there are very few that have't been affected by it. My family has been hit very hard, but we have also had a few additional unique circumstances that have added an additional strain on our budget (moving earlier this year and the writer's strike which has GREATLY affected my DH's business to name a couple).
I'm not talking about anything extravigant, just a few gifts for my kids. My 4 YO is who I'm worried about in particular, he has very specific things he'd like and any old dollar store toy won't due, (he's been spoiled by Christmases past.) I'm also hoping to buy for my 20 mo. too, but she's not so picky and won't notice if she only gets one or two things. We can barely feed our family lately, so I just don't know how we are going to afford Christmas, even just the basics.
