how will this effect you when it comes to Christmas Shopping? Will you be able to get all of the stuff for your family members like you usually do, or are you going to have to cut back? Or are you having to go to places like Food Banks and the Salvation Army for presents for yourself and your kids this yr? Luckily for us, even though things are getting tighter we are still able to buy the presents we need to get for people. We both still have the same job we had at this time next yr. with no real worries at least right now. We usually just get the people we usually buy stuff for a Gift Card for somewhere and let it be that. And then I also am going to continue buying the children in our church under 12 a small gift just to let them know someone cares. So, has the Economy effected you, or will it pretty much be Christmas as usual? ~~TINA~~

We have bought less this year. We have limited our gift giving to our family only and less presents.
