Do you spend the same amount on each child, regardless of age or what is on their wish list? Do older kids score more dollar-wise than little kids?
I don't want to be the Burgermeister (plus, Tim already has that job), but I just don't see iPod Touch and new snowboards in our budget this Christmas. Sorry.
I really want to inhale a big whiff of Christmas cheer and get in the spirit, but it's all feeling a little too commercial to me this year. The difference this year is that I usually heart commercial when I am in the thick of it spending the cash. This year's budget necessitates a return to Christmas simplicity, and I'm not quite sure how that translates to children.
