So far I have spent $102 on gifts for my family, and I'm only halfway done. I have bought for 8 people, and I have 19 on my gift list (and no, I can't trim it down, this is immediate family only, I've left a lot of people out. sadly.) and I only have one paycheck left before Christmas, plus we have to save so we can travel to Florida for the holidays. Needless to say, I'm stressing out. I LOVE buying gifts for people and I love gift wrapping (crap, I forgot I still need to buy wrapping paper too) but I have way too many bills to really enjoy it this season. It's really draining my Christmas spirit.
And sorry for being so whiney. I just wanted to get this out of my system. Thanks for listening, and if you have any advice, I would love to hear it.
