Did you know that there is less than four months left until Christmas Day? Yeah, I am stressing out just a little bit about that. Last year, my kids didn't have much under the tree, and I don't want this year to be the same. I want to be able to get them everything they want, but deep down, I know that just isn't possible. Ryan and Kasi are getting too old for toys. They want expensive electronics. I caught Ryan checking out Geek Magazine the other day, and he was drooling over some of the gadgets on there.
He already has a laptop, and I would love to be able to get both of my girls their own, but even with a million Apple promo codes I couldn't afford it before Christmas. Last year, when I got my tax refund, I gave each of the kids $100 to spend however they wanted. All three of them bought cell phones. This year, I think I might just get the girls their laptops instead of handing them cash. I'm just hoping that after I pay for my divorce and buy a new car there is money left over.
Until then, I am going to try and do a little shopping here and there when I have some extra cash. I plan on doing some shopping online, and using a Target promo code or two to save some money. All I need first is a list of things my kids want for Christmas that I may actually be able to afford.
