Mother’s Day is big business in the U.S.

Between the cards, the flowers, the brunches and all the other accoutrements, Sunday’s little holiday for mom will have many local businesses seeing green. Of course, it’s the thought that counts, not the price tag — but we were wondering how much you were planning on spending on your own mother this weekend.

(If your mother is no longer with us, you may tell us how much you’re planning on spending on your wife or any other important mom in your life.)

    I’m in the higher brackets as my mom’s birthday is the same time so double whammy.

  • TrailerTrash

    my Mom’s a lying cheating whore. Not getting a penny from me, and btw, she’s late on her child support payments.

      Yer gonna git a beatin’ when you git home!

  • JamesE

    my mother doesn’t live in Clarendon so she must be ugly and doesn’t deserve a gift.

  • V Dizzle

    Saving my pennies for a nice nursing home when she turns 60… in Mexico.

    it’s hard in the modern era when you have more than one mom. or as a married couple, more than two. or three. good heavens.

    I assume those who voted $0.00 did so because their mums are no longer living. Why would someone spend just $0.01 though?

    happy mother’s day – love ya, mom!
