I set my budget about a month ago and have been pretty good about staying within it. I've found a lot of great deals online, so I've actually been able to stay within my budget and be able to purchase even more.

I did not set a budget but I SO wish I would have. I'm almost done with my shopping and I definitely overspent this year.

I usually do every year, and I'm actually surprised that I didn't! I had a budget set, and I managed to find some great deals online so it stretched even further and made it look like I spent a lot more. If I hadn't found those deals, I probably would have overspent!

My goal was $100 per kid and dh and I'm fairly sure I was near that, usually I'm way above

That was about our goal for DD. It was $100, and then I changed it to $120 a little while later.
