Tony, Jake and I have been debating about how much you should spend during Christmas.
Tony has grown kids so the shopping list for them is a lot pricier than what I’ll be buying for Bridger and Jake has younger kids who are super into cool toys and gadgets. But I’m not just talking Christmas presents… I mean the whole season together – decorations, the tree, dinner, gifts, misc. How much do you plan on spending this year? I found the Christmas budget of an actual family of six here on the West Coast and I feel like the money they are spending seems like a lot but maybe not?? You be the judge.
