If you spend - gets lost in the shuffle, or on something special?

We get 50 from in laws and 100 from parents. We buy presents for kids and use the rest on groceries/ spare change around the house.

We get something special that we wouldn't otherwise buy or be able to afford. One year we got enough to get a complete bedroom set for my kids. This year we're using it for a small family getaway.
Between my parents, in laws, & 4 sets of grandparents kh, it amounts to a nice amount.

Lucky lucky lady I hope you make the most of this special opportunity you have. Take lots of pictures of your kids with their grandparents. It’s a gift most of us don’t have. Cherish it.

Why is it either/or? Save some, spend some, give some to tzedakah.
