    DH and I don't usually exchange presents. What we are doing this year is cleaning out all the junk in our closets, pulling the carpets to expose hardwood floors, and getting new linoleum in the kitchen. It will be like starting the new year in a new apartment.

    I think it has always depended on family finances how many presents I have ever gotten. When I was in junior high and high school my mom was a single parent that only got paid once a month. So we would always get pictures of what would be bought when she got paid at the beginning of Jan.

    My parents continued with santa until my junior. Year In college. Eventually, it only came to books and clothes because I was to old for toys

    My parents always put on these enormous, over-the-top Christmas spectacles. I can honestly say, out of the thousands of gifts I received over the years, that I can only actually remember a handful of them. I got a stereo system when I was 7. I got a basketball net when I was 10 (that was never actually put up), and every year our stocking contained all sorts of bath goodies. That's it. I know I got a TON of stuff because you couldn't walk in the living room for all the gifts that were piled under the tree, but that's all I remember. This lasted until I was out of high school.

    As a result, Christmas in my household is small but meaningful. This year we got a couple of family gifts (an Xbox Kinect that came with a game, plus two more games, and a bunch of movies that I picked up when they were on sale for less than $5). Each child got a $15 toy that they'd been wanting for a long time, and each child got a book. I also continue the tradition of a stocking full of bath goodies. Everybody gets a new toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, bubble bath, shampoo, and those that need it get deodorant. As soon as they need them, they'll also get razors.

    Our Christmases are so much happier and peaceful since I decided to go the minimalist route.
