We haven't cut back. We have (combined) 10 N&N's that we buy for and Erin can usually get it done for under $150. She's one hell of a bargin hunter (she loves the Kohls) and starts around Sep./Oct. Most of the time it's an outfit each and a toy for the pee-wee's. I don't care much for getting kids clothes for B-day or X-mas but I don't want to do it myself so I keep quiet.
