How much did you spend on holiday shopping?

This year, my goal was to spend about $250 on holiday gifts.
Did I make budget? Of course not.
I was off. Waaaaaay off by like about $200.
Yeap, I spent almost $500 on holiday gifts this year.
Go ahead and shoot me in the foot. I was a part of the consumer madness that plagues the holiday season every year.
Sad thing is that I could've easily made gifts but didn't really feel like it.
But you know what, I don't feel bad about my gift-giving amount.
I gave to those that have given me in the past and continue to open their hearts to me.
And call me vain but I also gifted myself. (Hey, you've got to take care of you, right?)
Good thing is I get an extra paycheck this month so I'll be able to pay off my holiday shopping bill, donate to a cause and get ahead in my bills.
So it's really no biggie.
I overspent on holiday shopping this year but it was well worth it.


  1. Yay give to UNITED WAY!! Lol. no really you should.

  2. You need to be their spokeswoman, lol. I gave a nice donation to United Way last month. And I just made a donation to NSU. Gonna up my giving game in 2011!
