At Chrustmas time, our church puts a tree in the back with little paper ornaments for people to take. they have the name and age of a person wh comes from a poor family. They also have a small “wish list” for Christmas gifts for that person. I grabbed one for a teenager the other day because the item they wanted was from a store that is right next to where I work. They wanted a pair of jeans from this store. I went in there and the cheepest pair was over $40! On the little ornament, it also says; sox, belt and watch. I am thinking of getting the other stuff on the list because the first thing is way too expensive.
Am I being cheep here? we can bairly afford to do small gifts for the family and I just don’t feel right about spending $40-80 for a pair of over priced pants for a strainger.
so I have the wrong attitude about this? I feel really bad, but I don’t know what else to do about it.
any advice? should I just get the jeans since it was (at least I think) the thing the boy really wants the most?
