Every year I do this. I get everything bought and wrapped for the kids and then I decide that I need one more thing. Just a little something to add to the pile.
But the truth is that what I have already is more than enough and I certainly don't want to start a tradition where the kids are burnt out by the fourth gift and there's still a giant pile to unwrap.
So, why can't I pass up the cute Little Ponies in the 50 cent bin at Goodwill? Why did I pick up the still shrink wrapped video tape that I know the kids will love? At least I have a head start on Easter baskets and birthdays.
Even buying second hand can get out of hand.
