What's your average?

Each year I stack all my Christmas receipts in one place and by the end of the holidays I count how much I have spent. I keep every receipt from big gifts to small stocking gifts.


Every year I always give myself a budget of 400$ and I always go over, sometimes even double it. This year again I haven't bought all my gifts and I've already busted it :S

So approximately how much do you spend every year on Christmas gifts?

Way....too much!! I should probably keep all my bills as well to see what the damage is!

Good Idea :)

It's usually about $200. I've cut way back in the last few years. I used to spend $1000+ when I was using credit cards. Now I live within my means.

EKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK..... I just added all my stuff up and I am close too $900! And that's for 12 people. So an average of $75 per person.. and I still have to get Chris stuff for his stocking. =(

I love giving Christmas gifts.... and it's hard now that I'm back in school and have NO money. I used to spend so much- but I truly loved spending every penny of it!

I am not even close to being done...but so far I have spent $315...I bet by the time I am done that number will be at least doubled!
