Christmas time is approaching quickly. I am setting aside money in my savings account for Christmas currently I have about 95.00 set aside just for her presents. I get paid again this month and I think I can throw an extra hundred or so in there. I grew up getting 200.00 worth of presents myself so that's what I have always tried to get. I look for clearance toys all year but there never is anything that I would buy. I've bought her a horse hospital for 15.00 just a small play set and that's it. It seems like everything is way more expensive. There is a certain doll house I want to order her that I believe is 165.00 on Walmart.com I haven't looked anywhere else but last year I wanted it and the price went up to like 300 and I couldn't afford that.
How much are you spending per child? Times and changing and so are prices. What is an appropriate amount to set aside?
