I am so sorry. Dh used to do that a lot. Do you have spending money in your budget?
We have spending money and we also have a specifies amount that if we want to go over then we need to consult our other half.

it is a process that takes time to get used to.  You cannot change a habit overnight!

agree with this. dh and I are working harder on keeping a budget. And save for summer events and back to school stuff so we aren't strapped in August/September. Its hard though but we got tired of having broke moments in the past.

We do have spending money for weekend nights for our treats chocolate and soda kinda stuff PLUS we budget so that he could get these 4.00 breakfast sandwichs at work that he loves. PLUS we budget a camping fund.

BUT the very next day after we spent HOURS going over it and I drove to 5 different stores unloading kids to get the things we need to MAKE homemade products so we are saving on home prodect and the 5 stores so we are saving on those items needed to make those products I would understand in a few weeks a slip up but the VERY next day

I could write a post like this myself.  I just checked our bank account and DH has been ordering about 2 records every day online.  I understand he wants to replace his collection that was "lost" by his dad but it impacts everyone else here in the house too. 

It makes me angry because when I want something he'll start talking about the budget.

This is always a good thing to have, we have it too, but DH usually ends up using it on himself.

I always tell him what I intend to get but he never tells me.  I would just like a heads up, not like its him asking for permission.

You need to sit down and talk to him about how you feel and whats not right because if you dont he will do it over and over again.
