Did I hurl myself into the crowds to tussle for cheap electronics on "Black Friday"? Absolutely not. Did I spend the day yesterday, "Black Monday," ordering online bargains? No again.
While I was in Florida with all my relatives, we agreed that this year we would only buy Christmas gifts for the children. Everybody is equally broke right now, so I think it will come as a relief for us all.
That means I only need a baby boy gift (probably clothes) and a 5-year-old girl gift. Oh, and I should probably get something for my 21-year-old cousin since he's a poor college student.
We'll still get together for a lovely meal, cookies and good company. That's the best part of the holiday anyway.
