Holiday budget

Have you allocated a budget for all your holiday spending?

In previous years, did you stick to your budget or did you go over?

Does the call of the sales deals like a "3 for the price of 2" hypnotize you into buying more or buying things that you didn't plan for or really need?

I don't have a budget per se, but I know exactly what I want to give everybody.

I never really set a budget --- I just try to be reasonable (although, with my DH, that isn't always possible as he loves to spend!). And I am rarely tempted by sales...

I'm done with my shopping, except for one thing which I'm picking up today.

Hugs, sometimes it's not that easy to keep within a budget!

Oh no! That's terrible, Karen! How is your daughter reacting?

Carol, I think that you and your husband compliment each other very nicely. Imagine if you both liked to shop and spend!

So no Cyber Monday shopping for you then, Molly?

I am so very impressed that you are already done with shopping!
