Have you ever bought clothes for yourself and not tell your husband?

I bought myself a new sweater. Well I was out with my Mom 2 weeks ago. I don't feel bad, I just include it as our time out.
The sweater was $20.00.

  • I usually hide EVERY new article of clothing purchase from my husband. I rarely tell him if I bought something because he jumps onto me for it. I'm sorry, but my clothes don't last forever, and I've lost weight since having our daughter, and my boobs have changed. Sometimes, I NEED new clothes, even if he likes wearing his until they're hardly holding onto his body by one seam.

  • Yep. He doesn't care anyway. So I usually don't say much, but not because I'm hiding it.

  • Why would I tell him? Not like he's giving me an allowance...

  • I usually don't but if I do spend it. I will let him know what I got and how much it was.. but he doesn't care since I barely ever buy stuff for myself. It is usually for him or the boys!

  • Sure, I don't have to report every purchase to him... I buy what I want and IF he's there when I'm getting home or putting the stuff away, I show him. But i don't make it a point to show him, nor do I hide it... I have no need to.

  • I have not told him that I plan on going shopping but every once in a while when I find a sale and have the extra money I will pick up a shirt or a pair of pants. I end up telling him when I get home but he tries to get me to shop more because I went from a size 28 to 17 then down to a size 12 and I literally have 2 pairs of jeans that I can fit but need a belt in and 3 pairs of stretchy pants and then dress pants which I use for work. He keeps pushing me to go shopping and I have to remind him of the electric bill or gas bill or something else like that.
