Anyone stressed about the Holidays this year?
Ok I have 4 kids 3 of them have birthdays in November and December. There ages are 14,12,10,8. I budgeted 100 each for birthdays and 100 total for Christmas. So 700 total. I do not want to use credit cards and I also have a new baby nephew to buy for my parents and my sister. Money is tight and I started budgeting in September. Do you think I could get away with cutting the 100 per kid to 75 per kid? I have to do stockings as well. Could you do it? How much do you spend per kid or does it vary? I have not budgeted for holiday meals as we do a potluck. Anyone else feel stressed?
