I haven't bought anything yet, but I do plan on buying Rob's gift soon. And his birthday gift (his b-day is Dec 18. When he was growing up his parents combined it w/ Xmas, but I told him that he will always have it separate with me
). The only problem with buying him something I know he wants is that he could very well buy it himself before hand
We'll probably not go too crazy with other gifts this year for other people because our house SHOULD be finished by the end of the year (so there is a mortgage payment added to our lives!), we're spending a lot on one another, and we went nuts with Xmas gifts for family 2 years ago (spent about $2k).
I do plan on getting bargains - I bargain shop! I bought my mom Gucci Rush perfume one year - at the stores it went for $65 or so. I found it online for $35
She freaked when she thought I spent so much, but I told her I got a great deal. I don't know how good of a deal I'll get on Rob's gift, because they only really sell it in one place.
I do spoil the kitties on Xmas too (and birthdays!). I don't know what I'm gonna get them this year though because they already have everything a cat could want
They each have their own cat tree, litter box, food & water dishes, baskets of toys, kitty cubes, scratch pads... But I'm sure I'll find something - probably more toys and maybe a new scratching post for Nero. It'll be his first Christmas
He thinks Meowmy is a scratching post right now!
So money wise, I'll probably be spending about $460 for Rob, and ~$25-50/family member (mom, dad, brother, MIL, FIL, BIL). And about $50 on the kitties since I cant really think of anything big to get them! And then there's the TCS SS stuff
