I'm using my Amazon card for the majority of my gifts since it's 0% interest for 6 months. I have enough to PIF from my savings, but I rather not touch that since I get this offer.

Amazon $430 (mom, lil sis, lil bro)
Kohl's $60-70 (sports type of clothes/jackets for dad)
$300 cash ($150 for two sisters that could use money over gifts)
$50 - for two white elephant parties (one with work/one with friends)

Total: $850

Also, I spent $330 for my gifts to me, but not gonna count that. :wub:

About $1,500 total.

All the money for my family's Christmas gifts has been donated by a CA that just settled an FDCPA law suit with my attorney.

Well it's all relative to what someone's income is.

We're spending about $700 on the kids.

How can you even keep track...

by reviewing my credit card statements which conveniently itemize my purchases for me.

Our (DW's really) Xmas shopping seems to get mixed in with the rest.

$300 on scotch whisky from our favorite shop in London- 3 bottles for DH, one for SS. Another $300 or so for various relatives on DH's side in the form of gift cards. About $20 for cards, each with 2-page hand-written letters, to distant relatives. $200 for toys and clothing for the poor. That is all. I'm really grateful that my family isn't into extensive gift-giving- we all do pretty well financially and aren't into accumulating more Stuff. It makes the Christmas season a lot less stressful.
