I'm about to spend a ton of money on Christmas. Take a deep breath! I'm going to give an explanation and then you can fry me. There are just certain people that I'm not willing to stop buying for. So here it is.....
A friend of mine has three kids, one DJ's age and then one in about 3rd grade and a 5 year old. The kids don't have grandparents on the Father's side. And while they do have grandparent's on the mother's side, they are from a poor country and can't do much. And while it is their Christmas, the parent's believe in educational gifts for the most part. BORING! Let's just say that my gifts are very well received. I'm thinking Wisconsin Dells. They have a lot of great deals in the winter. I'm going to get a $125 gift card from here! And so I don't put a strain on their tight budget, I've been saving our free gas cards for them.
I'm going to put a note in the gift to tell them how to book super cheap rooms and suggest bringing their own food up there so they get to go for free.
This is the gift that I'm looking forward to giving the most and it will be free since I've saved my credit card rewards for this.
I'm off to shop,
