I dont really spend much for there is nothing much to spend. LOL. Anyway, I always believe that its the thought that counts and not the price. I cant say the total price here becoz we dont have similar currencies. But I spend more on the effort and time of being with them or call them at least.

Well, We had a large family, and to insure that we always had money for Christmas, I developed an idea to save money all year long, so when Christmas came around, we were never short of money, and this always made the kids happy!! All I did was figure out how much money I wanted for Christmas, which at that time was 600 dollars, So every month, I would put 50 dollars in a savings account, I always figured out one way or another a way to make sure I put that amount in the bank!! And you know what, that idea,helped me with other aspects of our expenditures! When ever we wanted to buy a large ticket item, that's the strategy I used to accomplish that! When we needed a car, I put 50 dollars a month in a savings account, until I got the down payment to finance one! When we needed any furniture or appliances, I would put 50 dollars a month in a savings account, until we had enough money to buy it! Anything that I anticipated we were going to need in the future, I started a savings account for it and usually had the money for it!! And now my grandchildren enjoy all those presents at Christmas, because my kids learned it from Me!!
