Our family is expanding I am about to have our third child. Husban leaves overseas because of work and he has to make expenses ( food, light internet ). I am used to be able to spend money or go where ever I want to go .My husband and I got into it because he says I spend too much money and because I have no idea how much I spend so he pretty much restricted me to 780 every 15 days. I have to buy food pay for gas buy diapers pay my cell phone bill and also pay for my daugthers dance classes that cost me 240 everymonth . My car spends about 60 dollars of gas per week .
I never felt so restricted I have to pay my mom give her 100 a week for helping me clean and take care of kids she lives with me.
I have very little money left after all that gets taken out am I been a cry baby ? am I just not managing my money right could a woman afford to live with 780 dollars every 15 days and buy groceris gas pay cell phone pay mom 100 a week and dance classes 240 a month for my daugther diapers for my toddler milk ...and have some left to spend on herself?? Can somebody gives me some words of wisdom. I have no money to go out on a movie or have fun weekend with my kids is my husband been fair is he controlling me>?

I would start charging your mother rent!! You should not be paying her to help clean if she lives there too!!
I only get $800 every 30 days... that's 200/week for food (family of 4), gas, household stuff, etc... I would be living large if I got what you do... which is twice as much as I am running this house on!!! I don't get any $$ to spend on me.. not if we want to eat!!
