So i have friends who i love and we always exchange Christmas gifts but since i started dating my boyfriend and had my daughter Christmas is just so expensive . this year my list is My Daughter, my mom, my dad, my brother , my grandparents, my boyfriend , his mom , his dad , his son , and then my close friends ,katie , steph , koral , patricia. now my boyfriend and I are also saving to buy our first home so were putting 1500 dollars a month into a savings account. i put 250 a pay and he puts 500. because he makes a lot more then i do . we dont live together so we both have rent and bills ontop of that, plus we each have a child. he has his half the time and i have my daughter full time with a night off every other weekend when she goes to her dads. anyways when i expressed to my friend I had to just do family and not friends this year she got upset I'd told her id make it work. I'm done my daughter , my boyfriends son , my boyfriends parents (thankyou shoppers drugmart points) my grandparents still have my boyfriend brother and parents, this would be less stressful without feeling obligated to have to exchange presents with my friends as well. someone have advice?
