In 2014, start saving. When you get taxes back, instead of a new purse, or getting your nails done, spend $100/kid buying gift cards to local stores.
Then, once per paycheck, get an additional $5-10 gift card per kid. Cut back on junk food, or soya, or smoking, or whatever it is you splurge on.
Then, come Christmas, you have gift cards to spend.
it isn't rocket science, it's learning to budget.
