My husband has no financial sense at all. We are about to have another baby and we are already always broke. We have enough for diapers but never enough to go out, not even to McDonald's. Well he smokes and I have finally convinced him to quit because we really can't afford it.
He now has this bright idea that once he quits (planning on May 1st) he will buy a motorcycle to help with gas! So we are going to add a $80 bike payment so we can save $50 on gas. Obviously the kids and I can't get on the thing so the only time it would help with gas is when he goes out alone.
How do I teach him to be responsible with money?? He told me I was the bi***est person in the world, all because I talk realistically and he hates when I point out the flaws in his "great ideas".

You have no money, but are having another child. IMO, that's not a very responsible or practical decision. You're in a tough situation. You need a strict budget. You also need to better decisions. Sorry about being blunt.
