Mommyish Poll: Okay, So How Much Did You Really Spend On Your Kids’ Holiday Gifts?
Not too long ago, we polled our readers on how much they were budgeting for kids’ gifts this holiday season. The majority of you responded that you were keeping those toys and gadgets to under $200 per kid. But now that those presents have hopefully been purchased and wrapped in the guest room (last minute shopping guide, mommies!) how about you tell us what you actually spent?
These are trying economical times and everyone is more or less trying to budget purchases. However, as well-meaning as parents often are, the holidays are still a time when many are resigned to that big ticket item that their child must absolutely have no matter the price tag. So just between us mommies, what was your damage this holiday season?
