According to the Savage Pacer’s Police Calls from the Dec. 29 Edition, a burglary took place within the city’s limits and a box of presents were stolen and the total loss seemed extremely high.
From the article:
Dec. 17: A resident of Savage reported that someone entered her garage in the 4900 block of 147th Street and stole a box of Christmas presents worth $4,251. There were no signs of forced entry. The case is under investigation.
That was either one very large box or there were a lot of expensive pieces of jewelry in that box. With an iPad and a TV on our Christmas list this year, we’d still be very lucky if we broke $1000 spent and we certainly would not have been able to fit everything in a single box.
So I have to wonder, how much do you spend on average for presents each year for your families? Are we extremely cheap? Is $4251 the average amount and could you get it to fit into a box? Do you hide your presents in a single location, like the garage, or do you spread them throughout the house or keep them at your office like we do? Whatever you have to say go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
