So today I had my old neighbor call me and ask me where the Salvation army was.

I told her she said she was signing her kids up for toys for tots.

Then she told me. I give you the money for those two tablet we look at on amazon and I'll get that as my kids big present, around the first of the month. She doesn't know how to do stuff like Amazon.

She is buying her kids one big gift each and doing toys for tots.

I personally don't care. But I couldn't help but wonder what mc would say.

She has two kids. Lives with her mom. Has several mental illnesses and get ssi on her and one of her children and she get food stamps. So she us very low income. And her mom is her payee.

I need to move. Christmas will be minimal, or I'll give the adult women in my family some of my new in box inventory that doesn't sell.

I don't have an opinion.

She sounds like she needs it if she gets SSDI and is low income. Some parents want to still do one special,present that they bought even if they are struggling. 

I wish you a Merry Christmas.

If they're getting a gift - and a big one like that, they DON'T need Toys for Tots.

I've seen tablets as cheap as $30 lately.

I will say they aren't expensive tablets. $35 each so $70 for both.

Eh her life I don't agree with but nothing that concerns me.

My daughter will get one thing per family member or family as a whole who wishes to get her something. I want her to rather volunteer and give rather than expect to recieve.
