Losing my job is not stopping me from dropping over a grand on xmas

Christmas is just too special for the kids. I'm not going to scale back just because I lost my job due to downsizing. I'm making it work between my husband's job, unemployment, savings, and child support and will hopefully have a new job before long.

If you have the money to spend then go for it. Hopefully it doesn’t affect your bills though.

Nope everything is paid up and will remain that way. Even if I have to take a little from savings to pay it.

Lol if you like it I love it.

I’m so glad our family doesn’t get this stupid about consumerism for Christmas. We’re not in any financial crisis and somehow we manage to not sacrifice emergency funds for a damn holiday.

When I was a kid, Christmas was like magic. Gifts just pouring out from under the tree, filling the whole room. Stockings stuffed full of candy and small treasures. Clothes, books, toys, jewelry, vacations, pets, electronics, you name it, we got it. We weren't terribly spoiled any other time of the year which I think is part of what made christmas so magical and wonderful. My brother and I were aleays so grateful And would exclaim every year that it was the best Xmas ever. I want my kids to feel that too. It was never just the gifts. It was the wonder that it all inspired.

1000 is really not that much anyway, especially if you have more than one.  I used to spend more than that for one
