We are  family of seven, we have $400, and thats not just for our kids, we also have godkids, my housemates three kids, and friends to shop for, and it went very far. If you can't make $1000 work buying for a family of seven, you need to watch how you are spending.

Thant is $142.86 for each person.  I didn't even spend that much on each person in our immediate family.  I think you have it pretty good.  Sorry that you feel that is not enough money.

This.  My kids get plenty and I don't spend over that amount for each of them.
