I see all these christmas posts about holiday shopping.

anyone else not doing any this year?

we had an unexpected trip come up where we have to take ds to a pediatric urologist. so our christmas money is going to that trip.

i did get two home depot tool belts and im going to decorate them for the kids to use. they were $.77 each and im.using our craft stuff to cut out letters for their names.

I can look into toys for tots. no idea how though. my mom was out of a job for a while and just started working a few days ago so shes playing the catch up game and dh parents business is going down the drain so they have no extra cash


Quoting RoseBlossom:

what about toys for tots or angel trees, or family members?


Quoting sadeyez11:

We are not members of any churches here.





Quoting RoseBlossom:

its the thought that counts. last year we were extremely poor because both df and lost our jobs. we got in touch with our church and they gave us gift cards for target, maybe you can ask for help?



Quoting sadeyez11:

We have a tree and thats why i literally took change to buy the little tool belts. Ds can use itfor his little cars and whatnot and dd for her hair stuff when she plays beauty salon. i cant spend what we have saved because i dont know exactly what this trip is going to cost.








Quoting RoseBlossom:

i always try to get something for my kids. even if its a few 5$ toys wrapped in newspaper under a plant, i still do something.

I've never been much of a shopper. I craft (usually sew) instead :-)

Hope your ds is okay.

It's really not about the presents, bake them some delicious homemade treats along with the belts and snuggle up to some movies and they will have a blast! :-)
