    To me this so-called millennial generation looks much more "entitled" than "frugal"

    Bargain and frugal are not complimentary attributes for any consumer shopper of any age. There is a big difference, good consumers do value shopping. That means getting your money's worth and more. Durable goods should last 20-30 years and most of today's consumer products barely last a few years. Another attribute of a good consumer shopping is not wasting money to maintain their status quo with technology or product updates.

    I also doubt that the millennials know what income limited and cash spending means either. This group tends to follow bad advice of banks and financial agency's by irresponsible income management and have never read any of the terms and conditions of any credit card or debit accounts where there are up to 50 fees singly or in multiples attached to accounts. If a person or family lives and worries about credit scores they are financial victims of fraud and corruption in the banking industry.

    Its too bad they are on the path of never a peaceful day nor ever have the freedom of financial independence and life span will be much shorter than their great great grandparents.

    He is newly married. I assume no kids. I'm all for buying something like a tv. But why call that Xmas shopping?

    Buy for both parents and spouse gift, or the tv is their gift to each other. Exchange with less people.

    Just what everyone wants: stuff you got for "a deal".
    That's the garbage that goes straight to the Deseret Industries after Christmas.

    Make everyone some good cookies, and call it done.

    Santa Claws makes a list, checks it twice. Keep a list what objects the money bought, you'll know where the money went.
