You guys still hanging in there? Part 3 of my How Much to Spend on Christmas post series is finally here! Let’s recap:

Part I covered the “WHAT” behind buying your kids presents for Christmas – how to avoid going into the “unnecessary” zone and overpaying when you just don’t need to. Part II covered the “WHY”, and helped us figure out why do should/shouldn’t buy things a certain way for our kids (trust me, it’s worth a thorough read).

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…Part III which will show you the “HOW MUCH” you should be spending and how to do it in an organized way! Please note, you really truly should read parts 1 and 2 before reading this one or else it will be confusing and harder to do…mmmmkay? Without further adieu…
