Have a little stash

While secret hoarding is bad, some couples like to have their own money to spend on whatever they wish, which is understandable and healthy, Khalfani-Cox says. Set aside some funds each month for yourself (or your partner) only. You can save the money or splurge it as you wish, as long as it's part of the big-picture budget.

I do that. 

I save what's left of my weekly cash (when there is some left) and get a pedicure every now and then.

I agree with this.  I have a separate savings account for just me.  :)
