for me to hide money from my so in hopes to save it for a rainy day? we have a real spending problem. when we see it in savings or checking we spend it. i was thinking of opening a savings account at a different bank and depositing 50 a month into it. ive talked to him about it before and he liked the idea but its been a while since we talked about it...

I hide money from my DH for that very reason:  if he sees money, he spends it.

I don't see the issue with it, as long as he knows you're doing it

I do it. Sometimes you have to if you live with a spender like I do.

I say go for it. I personally think its a great idea. I don't have a savings account for that. But what I do, is I save all DHs tips. he;\'s a delivery driver for a trucking company. When he gets tips, he gives them all to me for groceries or whatever. But I try and save as much as I can and it goes in to an envelope I have hidden in my dresser. :)

I don't think so.  I have my own stash.

I have the same problem with so but we decided to open savings acct to the new bank I signed up that affliated from work. We decided not get debit/check card from the bank so we won't end up using it.

Save all your single dollar bills and change somewhere in the house... I did that for a year and ended up with over $900.
