Posted by   + Show Post

I am so mad right now he went to hang out with his brother tonight so he spent 50 dollars... Why am I so mad we just sat down for HOURS last night to come up with a budget that we agreed on and have been really deicated to this we promised each other we wouldn't spend money and yet he spends 50 dollars So bummed.

My husband just did the same thing! We are seperated so we are paying 2 different rents, PLUS he is in training to work at the brigg on base so he is in texas and has to pay like 500 to stay in a hotel for 2 weeks... AND I was so mad when he told me he spent 200 at bass pro... when ALL the bills are due the first. =-/

Do you guys have a budget item for fun money? DH and I each get a set amount each month that we can spend on anything we want - lunches out, leisure activities, save up for electronics, whatever. You guys need to each get a portion so you can each have some money to blow and still stay within the budget.

Men tend to be like that when their with their friends or family. They seem to need to act like money is no option. My husband did it for years and it got me sooo mad. Over the years he has mellowed and will blatently say that we are tight on money and can't afford it.

I would also like to say that when you can't do something with the bike or going camping it might hit home a little and make him think. Lessons learned the hard way.
