Ladies what do you do when your in this situation?

I am a SAHM my dh is the bread winner there are times where I am at a store and see something nice or cute for the home and I want to buy it so bad but can't bc he'll ALWAYS say wait till payday...I HATE WHEN HE SAYS HAT!!!!I know things come p but damn seems like whatever I want at the time it's put in the back burner...I saw a really cute slip on sweater for our dd9 and I knew if I bought it he would bitch...
I just hate going thru worrying about him bitching when is the right time....ugh!

  • I don't blame you, which is why I work part time. Can you do something from home? Data entry, babysitting, pet sitting or something to make a few extra bucks for yourself?

  • Either work part time or start a 'rainy day fund' put $5-$10 aside each paycheck for impulse buys. It sucks to have to wait to buy things but part of that is just being a grown up.

  • I'm not saying all SAHM's deal with this or all husband's are like that but that is one big reason why I'd always want at least a part time job even if I didn't have to work. I like making my own money with nobody telling me what I can't or can't spend or when. Responsibility is one thing but I enjoy the freedom of having my own money too.

  • I would look for some part time work, even if it is just a few hours a week.

  • Didn't answer the question.. I would go get a job.

  • I would get a parttime job. Since you have a dog that you do not want to leave alone, maybe you can try being a dog walker and take your dog along.
