Who is the big spender in the house?

You or him? I think I am (if you consider grocery shopping being the big spender lol) but he hardly buys anything.

  • depends on what is being bought lol
    he spends all the money on guns and electronics, I spend on groceries, household items and clothing. any real big ticket items we agree on together.

  • It depends. I spend a lot of expensive clothes and things for our son that he really doesn't need. But my husband is always buying new vehicles or "man toys" like four-wheelers or big screen televisions. I like those toys too so I don't complain! We are both big spenders, we just spend it on different things.

  • Hubby all the way. Thats why im booting him out. He dont care about the bills we have just what he wants spend, spend, spend. Leaves me home to deal with the bill collectors. And figure out how my check will pay for everything. It only goes so far.

  • Cpaxsoon, I am sorry to hear about your husband's lack of financial responsibility. It can be a really hard thing when two adults don't have the same values and goals.

  • I don't think either of us spends more than the other. He gets his hair cut every week so he spends the same as I do on that even though I do mine every other month. I don't get my nails done etc. We usually want big toys like motorcycles when we spend money so we wind up saving up for it and get whatever we want.
    groceries does NOT count cuz that is for the whole family - silly girl! :o)
