I came across this article Holiday sales tumble as US consumers cut spending however I thought to myself "I never spent more during the xmas period". I ended up spending just over $3,000 (I'm not a big spender) on Gifts for family and friends and also on myself, mainly on clothing due to the sales. I even noticed my ebay purchases up during this period.
I was wondering if everyone had spent more or less during this current xmas period? even in light of the current economic conditions.
