    Money is extremely tight this year, so we only bought gifts for our daughter and neices. I also did most of my shopping and kmart and biglots. Just couldn't do the mall or toysrus this year... Also, I'm making cookies and chex mix for the grown ups and making home made gift baskets.

    We cut our list, but only b/c my inlaws don't want to exchange gifts this year, and we're not able to get together w/ my family this year.

    We didn't cut our list at all. Other people's hardships don't affect how we treat them at Christmas.
