How do you do it? This isn't a humble brag, trust me, I seriously admire people who spend less, but I can't imagine spending less than a few hundred dollars on gifts & stocking filler for one kid.

Well, most of us do it because we can't afford more.

We aren't frugal, but it doesn't take a brain surgeon to spend money wisely if you have to.

Because to some of us, it's not all about the presents & coming on here & bragging about how much we spent. To some of us it's more about making memories & spending time with loved ones.

I'm sorry. I'm still interested in learning tips & tricks, even from those who use them out of necessity.

Some don’t have the income.
Some have the income but don’t find it necessary to overspend.
Some have the income yet stick to a budget.

I didn't ask why, I asked how.

Not everyone is so materialistic. That's not what the season is about.

You just don't spend the money.
I'm guessing there is nothing you, your kids, your family, your friends NEED.

I was looking more for ideas on stocking stuffers and shopping tips.
