My boyfriend and I don't have kids yet, as I'm just out of med school. I'm not sure how much I'd spend on them, but probably not more than 300ish. My mom had a 300 dollar limit on my sister and I growing up, but after we hit like 13ish, she'd just take us to the store. We always got a lot, but not enough to spoil us. When I was 16, there was a class trip to Germany, and I spent 150 of the 300 on clothes, and the rest went to my Germany fund.
