  • Do you shop evenly, money wise?

    I tend to keep it even, spending the most on my parents, the second most on my siblings and grandparents, then the least on aunts/uncles, cousins, ect.

    I will spend around $80 on each parent, then around $45 on my siblings, then everyone else I do about $25.

    We tend to just purchase gifts for the immediate family now, since ours has grown so big with all the rest of the family since some have gotten married and the family has grown even bigger. We we do purchase gifts we tend to keep it even for my son and daughter. For us, we spend about the same for each other or sometimes we buy a gift together if it's something big we want. Sometimes we don't buy a gift at all for each other as we may not really need anything.

    After 35 years of marriage, we tend to have quite a bit of stuff built up over the years, and in most cases we buy stocking stuffer's for the two of us.

      Try as I might, I can't shop evenly. I try to set aside $100 every year for one big gift for one family member, because every year someone needs something expensive. A kid wants a new game, an older kid needs funds for college, etc.
