    I find most toys i want to buy my kids are cheaper by xmas because there are always 'better' toys come december.

    This year my kids are getting a baby

    For real though, i dont worry about cost. We buy four things.
    Something I want
    Something I need
    Something to wear
    Something to read.

    So we will do that again

    Nothing.

    Even greater than my aversion to plastic stuff is my aversion to organisation

    I spent about $200 on a Christmas lay-by for 2 children. I did it online so avoided the crowds and it's one less thing to worry about at the end of the year which is always crazy busy for me.

    I bought 2 items from the sale today but one is a table that I missed out on last yr and the kids are using it now and the other pressie prob won't last til Xmas as we will want to use it before then. I didn't think the sale was very good and the toys were either cheap and crap or very expensive and I am sure it will be cheaper before Xmas. My kids don't need any more toys so I was thinking of giving them outings for Xmas ( aqua, zoo,high teas, horseriding etc) instead of tonnes of toys.

    I always end up spending sooo much at the toy sales. I do usually plan ahead though . DS1 has his birth day Dec 20, so I buy for that, I also often get things for DD's B'day in April and I will put a few extra pressies in for birthday parties for next year. now I also have DS2 so I guess i will spend even more - I'm trying to get quality this year though not quantity. I'm not looking forward to it though - I hate the shopping but i like that i can layby for so long.

    We spent $600 on 2 kids but ds bday is the 15th so it includes those presents as well. Last year we had a few to many things so my parents bought them off us and then used them as presents for the kids to use at their house. Plus I always get a few small things to put a side as rewards etc for during the year.

    I haven't limited myself, but my older sister loves pirates and robots so I know I will be buying her a few things in the sales for her birthday and Christmas
    I've already looked through and I'll only be spending like $40 on DD because she'll still be so young she won't know what's going on
