in the past I have bought my kids xmas presents etc at the toy sales but this year ive decided not to. Last year they had lost interest in some of the things I had bought and I ended up buying more stuff.
Thing is, DS's birthday is a week before xmas and DD's is a few days after new year. The great thing about the toy sales is I could layby stuff for xmas/birthdays and pay it off for 6 months.
Ive decided ill be buying gift cards each month until November to stores like kmart/target/bigw and use those for buying presents. I figure if I have $200/$300 that should be enough.
Just thinking though, do you have a xmas planning thing that you do??
