According to the USA Today Christmas spending will be up this year. The survey shows that Americans plan on spending on a average $751 on Christmas gifts.. That's up by almost 22% over last year.Online shopping has become a popular option to spend holiday dollars. I plan on doing the bulk of my Christmas shopping this week. Going online to shop is much easier than dealing with the crowds at the mall.

I plan on spending about the same as last year.  All my youngest son wants is a Game Stop gift card and my other son just wants cold hard cash for college. All I have to figure out is what to by my wife and I'll be done!

Do you plan on spending more or less this Christmas?
