Not only showing what we bought our kids, but exactly how much we spent and how we stayed UNDER budget - WITHOUT coupons or black friday shopping!

“How much do you spend on Christmas gifts?” That's a question I'm guessing doesn't come up during casual lunchtime conversation with people. Why? Well, for one it's very personal! Maybe you don't want to sound cheap, or sound like you're spoiling your kids, you don't want to feel awkward or be put in an uncomfortable position. I get it! I've been there!

But…

Aren't you curious?

I am! And lucky for you, if you've been following me for long you know I'm not afraid to talk about the awkward stuff. So this year I'm not only showing you what we bought our kids for Christmas, but telling you exactly how much we paid, where we got it from, how we decide on what gifts to buy, and how much we spend on other family members and friends as well.
