Anyway, we are donating a portion of our proceeds this year to a mission team going to Ethiopia next year, but I think we will still come out a few hundred dollars ahead, which makes Christmas shopping much much easier!
Do you do anything special to afford gifts? (p.s. We have a lot of people between our families to buy for - other than our kid and each other, we don't spend more than $25 per person and no more than maybe $100 on all three of us... It just makes it so we can afford more than $5-$10 on each person, though we have found that if you hit the right sales that little bit can still go a long way!)
