Of course it's hard to stick to a budget! I have waaaaay too many people to shop for because I have a huge family. And when it comes to buying a present for my boyfriend, I always want to get him something really really cool. And often expensive. I think I'll try to do some homemade gifts this year. Thank God I'm a good knitter.
Can never stick to budget. It doesn't help that I have family that all tend to say "I don't need anything", leading to finding something that is more flash than persoanlly valued. Meh, I blame others lol
Yes, I always stick to a budget. Sometimes I'll make the budget pretty flexible, but I don't spend more than what is affordable regardless. I also comparison shop a lot and always try to find the very best deal possible. My man and I call it "mini-maxing". lol (Old gaming term. )
being a recent university graduate, unemployed, and in a ridic amount of debt, i have a strict budget - i can't afford to go overboard, and everyone in my life knows that and are very appreciative of whatever i can give them
