A few months ago, I made a decision to put $xx amount of money aside from each paycheck. It's a "secret" stash that only I know about - I haven't told dh. My purpose is this - I'm the bread-winner in the house and dh is always in and out of a job (he's out of one now). We are MAXED on credit cards and I felt we needed to have something tucked away in case of on emergency. I just checked the balance and I've met my goal! YAY!!!! So now the extra money I've been tucking away will be bee-lined toward the credit cards to get those paid down.
Have you ever had your own "secret" stash of money that only you know about? Is it wrong to keep it a secret from dh - although if he knew about it it wouldn't last long... he's a spender, I'm a saver

I agree that keeping secrets is a no no, but I can also understand your predicament, hope it doesn't backfire on you.....either way, your purpose for stashing is admirable....
