4. If we could keep the folks out of Wal-Mart that would help.
I don't plan to spend much, probably $250. Over the past several years we have cut way back. It is so much more enjoyable. I agree about the stores going out. The merchandise in the stores shows that, no selection and poor quality. My money will go to the food pantry this year. Peace, Kim
