I only have $20 to spend on my son and all my relatives. I decided to give my close family some homemade cookies. Today I bought small containers for them and then went to the toy section. I saw a toy for $9 and showed it to my son. His eyes opened really wide and he seemed to like it. Then I looked back at the price tag and realized it was for something else. The toy was $14. It was too much.
I know Christmas isn't about gifts, but putting that toy back broke my heart. My son has food, clothing, a roof over his head, and other toys. But this Christmas he won't get much.
I know I shouldn't be complaining, but I just needed to vent.
Edit- I'm not working right now. My parents are helping me out and that's why I wanted to give them something. The toy is one of those stand things with rings. Each ring is a different size and color. This one had buttons and lights.
