  • Nope. Neither of us are big money-spenders, so it's not an issue.

  • No, we just buy what we want.

  • Well when we HAD money, lol, my SO got $100 a week && I just kinda spent whatever I wanted. I am in charge of all the bills, so I just made sure not to over-spend.

  • Not really. He brings in most of the money, and he lets me spend whatever...if I'm spending too much, he tells me, lol.

  • Yeah I just spend what I want. Sometimes I have extra and sometimes I dont.

  • were thinking about setting an allowance for ourselves. im a SAHM (for now) & ive never been a spender, but my DH cant keep $5 in his pocket for 5 mins haha. so we've talked about setting a limit on personal spending. we figure we'd take $100 each paycheck & he gets $40, i get $40 & we put $20 away. i actually get to spend more money on this plan so im all for it. we just have to get ourselves to do it haha
