  • If there's money left over after bills are paid, my kids get stuff. Hubby and I just go with the flow and only buy clothes when we NEED it.

  • I spend 80% of my money on bills and the rest I usually spend on my DD...I like to spoil her with the little bit of extra money that I have left over.

  • We usually buy stuff in this order-stuff kids need, things for the house, if there is extra, stuff kids want and eating out. Occasional article of clothing for myself or SO but we've been wearing the same tired stuff since the kids were born!

  • I spend most of the money on the expenses of course, then my kids get a lot of money too because I buy all 4 of them clothes and lately its been baseball equipment. I am always willing to get them what they need. I occasionally buy things for myself, but only if I need it. Same for hubby. Its normal for your kids to get most of your money...LOL

  • bills, food, car (gas, repairs). Whatever is left over usually goes for books. I love to read.

  • I usually buy for my family and home first. I really get a kick out of seeing them look suprised. I love to buy small things for friends like a drink or a cup of coffee. They seem relieved to know someone noticed them that day.

  • Whenever I have "extra spending money" I always buy for my granddaughter, children, husband, and house. Very rarely will I buy anything for myself.
