What is y0ur weakness when it comes to your finances?

I am pretty good with money for the most part unless I am invited to a party at which point I usually splurge for drinks or a dish and also for a nice gift. Otherwise, am adamant with price matching and getting a good deal. My hubby is a little bit weaker when it comes to splurging.

  • i have just recently started going by mine and my husbands budget but i still tend to buy things when i go to the store. things that i dont need and just want it cause its there or i really like it. i do budget shop though. i do try to find things on sale most of the time. well i always find sales but my husband dont think most of it is good sales. but thats just how a man thinks in my opinion. lol. but all in all, the bills still get paid on time even thought we may be low on money for a week or 2.

  • I don't even buy clothes for myself because I still wear my sister's hand-me-downs. It just doesn't interest me to shop for is for the children! They have PLENTY of clothes, but I don't really resist buying more. Just one more dress, one more handsome sweater, one more wool coat...

  • Shopping. I love shopping but we can afford my one thing I love to do. If we couldn't I would simply not shop.

  • I don't have any. I am very regimented in my savings and my spending.

  • Grocery shopping I guess... It's cheaper than eating out, but I do still find myself buying things that are definitely in the category of luxuries.
