I have a very strict budget and I have to stick to it.

Somewhat.  I know what I have available to spend and that's what I spend.  We pay for everything with cash or rewards points.

On normal years I have an amount saved and that's what I spend. This year there's no way to save so with giftcards I'm getting each one of kids a gift.

We don't have credit cards.  We deal strictly in cash and when we need to pay a bill we usually use a money order or a prepaid debit card.  So, yes we have a budget.  Always do in everything because we basically use cash. :)
