joonzgurl, it's not that bad. We work within our budget, plus I do make extra money selling my baked goods each week, and most of that goes to help pay for extras like Christmas and Halloween costumes. We also limit the kids to only asking for 5 things, and they don't always get everything on their list. Usually I tell them at least 2 or 3 of their 5 things HAVE to be a useable/needed item like socks/underwear/or some other clothing.

So basically Christmas around here looks like this: 2 or 3 "fun" gifts, a pack of new socks, underwear, and pj's, and one new outfit. Then their stockings have one small toy and fruit in it.
