Christmas is nearly here again and its that scary time of how much do I spend on those Chrissie Presents. Every Year I always start around the end of October and put small gifts away for the family and friends and they intend to get alot of presents like PJs cheap shorts and tops etc. But this year I have decided not to do this as I have done this for over 10 years now. I am thinking about just buying a rather big present maybe spending like around $70 for both parents and the kids like $120 each and the hubbie $70 and me well nothing and I will only do a chris cringle with my friends I really do not know if this is a better way but I will see how I go.

  • I try to buy items throughout the year on sale.


  • i spend $200 for my kids and $20 each niece and nephew.


  • My Xmas shopping all depends on what specials are on. Last year I spent about $1000 just on my daughter and about $500 on the family. This year I’m doing homemade gifts as my daughter is at the age of wanting to make things and always lights my family faces up when they get something from her.
