Before you go out and buy something, do you discuss it with your significant other?  What do you consider a "big purchase"?

Cars, houses, furniture, anything over a hundred dollars (besides groceries & other typical needs) are considered big purchases.  Yes, I discuss them...up to him if he listens.

We are on a to-the-penny, extra tight budget. We discuss everything we spend.

I control ALL the money, I'll try to talk to him about things I'm spending it on, but he's listening to me anyway.  He doesn't care lol.  I just talk because I like to say it out loud lol.

 Anything over $100 I talk to my husband about.  It is not my money or his, it is ours and should be discussed.

This.
Except for us its usually $50 OR any out of the ordinary purchases (like a few weeks ago dh was told he needed new work boots by the next day so he called me to let me know since they're $130+)

Yes. We can easily afford it, but anything over $50 we discuss.
