I'm curious to see how much others are spending on Christmas. I just started using YNAB this year and I'm building up my Christmas fund. I wasn't sure on how much I should put in each month so I went back and tracked down all my transactions from last Christmas and I spent a hefty $2200. Now I have a large family and we all like to give big presents but spending that much seems excessive and I want to cut back this year.
I'm going to check with some family members and see about not exchanging. Hopefully that will let me reduce spending. I'm going to see if I can make do with spending $1200.
What ways have others done with reduce spending? How much do you generally spend?
