Instead of buying gifts for all of her children, she has them pick a sibling’s name from a hat and get something for them[/caption]

“I have a lot of fall and winter birthdays, as well as two Christmas birthdays. “I felt overwhelmed by the amount of stuff..”

Plus, I’m not the best at giving gifts. “I decided to stop buying gifts…”

Angie explained that instead of her spending money on numerous expensive gifts, each child draws a sibling’s name from a hat and then buys for them. “They have to think about what that person would want and pick it out,” she explained.

The mother explained that even though her children are under the аge of ten, she still needs to budget for gifts becаuse they do not hаve their own money.
