We do ok money wise. We pay bills with what DH makes and play with what I make. I want to start saving some for Xmas. I have 9 more pay days till Christmas. (paid every 2 weeks)My checks every 2 weeks are 416. I was thinking of holding back 125 a check. That would give me 1125 bucks to spend(If I went shopping all at once on Dec12th). We have 3 children. 7,6 and 2. If I take 250 for DH and I to buy each other things that leave 875 for our kids. Divided by 3 that's 291 per kid. HONESTLY I don't think I could spend that much on our 2 year old but that's what it would equal out to. Is that too much? 291 as pocket cash every two weeks for us is very doable. What is a good amount to save up?
