    More or less than last year? Me a tad more.

    I've already bought Wii and Wii Fit for the house. Amazon had great deal, figure we can use Christmas night. I'll use 'fit' for when I miss going to club. I think the 'kids' will use when friends are over.

    I'm allocating about $100 for each kid and $75 for the two significant others. I'm making homemade Bailey's for adult family and friends.

    All told=$1000

    I'll spend about the same on my family this year, but I'm donating more to local charities this year.

    Much less.

    If you arent my little sister, nephew, or neices you arent really getting much unless you like homebrewed beer.

    And my son of course.

    But I also picked a kid off of the "Angel Tree" (or whatever its called) at Wal-Mart.

    About the same I think on the kids, husband and I decided to not spend on each other,,next good furniture sale we will get new den furniture. I like Christmas because of the company, the food, we usually have a big seafood dinner. Same with Thanksgiving, we are having grouper shrimp, smoked ham and a small turkey. the wine, we usually have a good time. You will love your Wii.

    More. Much more. I'd say twenty times what I spent last year.

    lol

    My work is doing well. We sell items so cheap in good times Americans wouldn't consider them. Now we're busy as can be. So somewhat directly I'll be spending a little more.
