My sister gave me a great idea last year to keep shopping under control.
Each kid gets something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read.That is it. We buy 4 gifts for each child. I am finding it difficult as their toy want list keeps growing, but I am going to stick with the plan. Santa brings them their favorite thing, and other family members get them things too, so why do we feel as parents that we have to get every item on the list to make them happy. Does that really make them happy?
