We've got a big family - budget is tight - we can hardly do the birthday thing, let alone the Christmas one! Birthdays are just one person scattered throughout the year. But Christmas...
The kids are the most important at Christmas, I think. I've got - let's see... great nieces and nephews... 4 of those, and 2 of my own. The rest are adults. 4 nieces and nephews. They all have significant others. 1 sister. My mom, and my husband. So that's 16 CLOSE family. Then you've got friends, teachers, bus drivers, therapists for the kids...
What do you all DO for all of that, every year?
And GIFT CARDS - they are okay, but do you know, a lot of people don't even use them?!? In essence, you've put money out to buy a cheap piece of plastic, because it's never used!
Every year is exciting, but it seems to get harder and harder to
S T R E T C H it out to cover everything!
How do you DO it?!?!?
