This list is more for my own benefit, so I can check mark who gets what and keep track. I recommend making a list for yourself & keeping it with you if you are trying to stay on a budget - it really helps keep costs down when you shop and limits the "oh-why-not?" purchases.
- Exchange (sister, brother OR BIL) - from me
- Exchange (sister, brother OR BIL) - from husband
- Nephew (12)
- Niece (2)
- Nephew (1)
- MIL & FIL (combined gift)
- Nephew (1.5)
- Nephew (7)
- Nephew (9)
- Cousin (5)
- Cousin (11)
- Cousin (3)
- Aunt & Uncle (usually a combined gift)
- $10 limit, family - from me
- $10 limit, family - from husband
I would like to stick with the $20 per person allowance, as far as worth, but I'm not sure how that's going to fly since some of the items will be purchased w/ money from the stuff we sell and some items will be literally free - because I won them.
As far as "Just Us" goes, we've agreed to stick with a $100 budget for Monsoon, and only purchasing gifts for each other if we have extra money after everyone else has a gift.
Grand Total: $540
I'll post tomorrow with the items I already have, who they are for, and where our monetary budget lands afterward.
This is really a lot of fun.
