  • we did a little and there will be no more.....we normally buy big gifts and stuff at tax season...so they just get the little and medium things they ask for---for Christmas...if that makes any sense at all

  • All I've got left to buy is a few gift cards for those I couldn't come up with a gift idea for. I put aside money specifically for Christmas early in the year so it is there waiting for me with no stress when Christmas comes.

  • I just need to get a few things. I haven't bought but one gift for each child except for one. I found everything she wanted. Shes so easy to buy for because she made me a list. The other 3 did not. My teenager acts like she doesn't care and my 7 yr old hasnt said what he wanted. We don't even have a christmas tree. We just haven;t had the time to get one. I have the mantle all decorated and I might just leave it at that. We are so uncool. Money is tight here too.

  • We got each kid a few little things... our 5 yr old got quite a few books and our 2 year old got some trucks and little things like that but with money being as tight as it is and me being so close to having #3 we didn't do a tree or many presents this year. The one "big" thing we got them is a Super nintendo (yes I know its old) and some games to go with it... it was way cheaper then a new system and pretty much child proof when it comes to being able to drop it etc.

  • We are done... but I want to share a group with you on here call handmade holidays. There are GREAT inexpensive ideas on there. Good luck and I will pray for your family and hope you can give your children the best Christmas possible :) P.S. Check out dollar stores they have GREAT stuff (puzzles, jump ropes, bubbles, crayons, coloring books, stickers, candy, socks and little things kids just love) Good Luck!
