Holy crap! I guess I does add up! We have a $50 dollar per kid limit, plus about 15 each for stocking stuffers. Even that's going to add up to a ton over time :)

I hope there is a car or motorcycle in that bc that equates to way more than $1000 per Christmas.....
And if that is how you roll..... Will you adopt me? I'm adorable. ;-)

probably on average like 1400 a year, some years more some less.


I guess that a lot.

but in my defense he's never gotten birthday "present" from us until he turned 18.

he just got parties or trips for his birthdays , from us.

And most of his home clothes were purchased for christmas.

i would say until he was like 10, we spent like 1000 a year on him.

after that probably 2000 a year or so.  it really varied on things he wanted and

what we could afford.

mine are 21 and 8 now and can't even comprehend the amount spent on him all this time...I know I'm at 400 for the 8 y/o so far this year, and about 200 for the 21 y/o (he gets gift card, gift packs of fav body spray crap, razors, socks, underwear etc).

I'm sure if I did I'd be in the ER now with a heartattack LOL!
