My Christmas List on a $80 budget

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
To start, yes, we did save for Christmas and $80 is what we were able to save after all our bills and making huge payments to reduce our debts and saving for a down payment on a house.

So, we have 3 kids, 4, 2 and 3 mos. Here is what we got them:

DD (4): The Little Mermaid movie, ballerina "barbie", jumbo box of crayons, coloring book.
DS(2): Bubble Guppies movie, toy cars, jumbo box crayons, Coloring book.
DS (3 mos): Stuffed elephant teething ball.

It's also DS (2) birthday Christmas Eve so we got him a Captain America doll.

I got some of their little friends small gifts from the Dollar Tree and I made our family gifts with crochet, slippers for my MIL, bows and hats for the kids, leg warmers for my sisters and mom and golf hats for the men.

I think I did okay. But I do feel kinda bad we couldn't save more. Hopefully next year we can save a little more.

You have a bigger budget than we do :( We have $50 to spend on our two boys and our nephew. I'm really pissed off at my SIL because she didn't monitor nephew's list and 8 items on there are well over $500-1000. Like Season Tickets for the Cleveland Browns and Indians in certain sections (yeah, he got that specific), Mac Laptop, iPhone 5c, etc. He's only 10 yrs old!

Quoting Cozie_Sisika458: Sounds fine to me. Something is better than nothing right? Nice you got all that for $80.
