There are people I know who'll spend no more than $5 on any gift they are buying anyone. And they also limit the number of people they'll be buying gifts for. By doing so they save a lot of money by the end of the year. It had me thinking that this strategy isn't that bad. You shouldn't buy gifts for everyone you know after all. Not even the extended family [uncles, aunts and cousins who hardly ever visit]. Thoughts?
