I absolutely hate Christmas, I hate the fact that everyone always have their hands out for something. I hate spending money I really don't have and this year there's going to be some disappointed individuals. For one my uncles daughter, who I never see also my God daughter's sister who is always looking for something, and my nephew in Georgia. I can't afford so many gifts and I'm not going out of my way or broke to buy gifts. As far as the others I have to buy for, I will be hitting up JCPenneys in hopes of getting a really great deal otherwards there will be some very upset kids.
My bf is all set, less than a $100. I asked him to set a budget and his response was "I don't put limits on my lady" well he is in for a rude awakening because I place limits. For him I got a wet/dry vac $19.99 a car stereo $39.00 a music cd $15, and two picture collages free, total $75. My goal was to spend no more than $200 for Christmas and it looks like I am right on track.
On a different note I added $8 to the challenge/CC because we had McDonalds for breakfast

    Pssht, just send 'em all cards. Smile I have 4 siblings and 11 nieces and nephews; I never give them gifts any more (nor vice versa). It's one thing MAYBE if you're going to be spending Xmas with them, but otherwise, a card will do.

    For a while I didn't send anyone anything; just took care of my girlfriend. I finally got more festive in the past couple years, so now I send one card to each sibling of mine, addressed to their whole family, and a gift plus a card for my mom and dad.

    I pretty much don't do gifts for people not nearby. So if I go somewhere, I try to have gifts for those people plus immediate family. Although my brother and I don't generally exchange gifts anymore - just cards. But he and I are on the same financial mindset so understand each other.

    Unfortunately, I will be spending Christmas with my BF kids but my cousin who I hardly see will not get a gift, nor will my God daughter's sister.
