I think my husband is being extremely cheap. He wants to only spend $100 each per child. We have two kids.


I'll add so you ladies have an idea of our finance situation. we are middle class, my husband makes lower end of 6 figures, we have a decent amount in the savings at least 25k.

Is he being cheap or is this average

I only have one, but I know it was over $100 for sure

This year we've spent about $500 per kid. Usually it's about $3-$600

$150-200. I don't think he's being cheap.

We barely make 6 figures and I spent $600 each for 5 kids. $100 is dumb.

If I tallied it all up it be about a little over a hundred each.  Id liek to mention I have 4 kids. Honestly I think anywhere from 150-300 is normal.

That does sound a little stingy.

I didn’t count. I just bought up all of the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles toys on Amazon I could find
