Quoting Supafly★:" This year it's $50 per kid. The budget will change when they are old enough to actually give a smurf. ... [snip!] ... home this year. If I have to spend a whole paycheck in order to see my family and make them happy I'd rather just skip it. "
Yeah, that's terrible. I only buy for the important people like my grandma and mom. Other than that, it's my kids and that's it. People know we're on a tight budget and not to expect anything. I used to buy everyone in the family something but I just can't afford that now with 5 kids.
I do love Black Friday. I've only seen people be hostile a few times in all the years I've went. I've never had issues though. It's not worth it. Someone wants to fight me over something, they can just have it. I'm going to Toys R Us this year. I'll be buying for my kids and IF I make it to Walmart in time, I might buy myself one thing, if not, no biggie.
