As the holiday shopping season goes into full swing, some people are maxing out their credit cards to pay for presents and others are setting budgets and sticking with them.
Scour just about any Facebook stream or stop in a local coffee shop and chances are you’ll hear parents debating the merits of setting spending limits. Or, you'll hear them lamenting about just how much they've already spent.
The ideas for a perfect limit do seem to vary rather greatly. Some parents say $100 per child is more than enough. Others tend to lean toward much more generous figures—especially for teens when electronics and video games are involved. After all, there’s nothing like seeing a child’s eyes light up as they unwrap gift after gift.
And that’s what we want to hear from you! Do you set spending limits on the presents you buy for your kids? How much is too much? How much is too little?
