I'm having trouble with my Dh and Money...

He seems to go through spurts..

Like for awhile he wont touch the money in the account. I will give him money for gas and his extras .. that's it.

Then once in a while he will just go in and take some out.. not telling me. Of course that off sents my balance, and budget.

When I ask him he will say... I'm sorry I need this or that.. and give me then the reciepts.


Ever had this happen?

Not really. We use cash for just about everything, so it would be hrd to not know

No, my dh is the one in charge of the money. We always talk about what we are speding and where. But I trust him completely.

My husband is notorious for using his debit card and not recording the transaction. It is my biggest pet peeve with him. I hate having to ask him or remind him "did you use your card?" He doesn't understand that I can't guess what he has spent and where. I am the one who is stuck doing the finances because he is honestly clueless about money.

My dh gave all the money handling over to me. He just asked for about $40 a week for things he might like to pick up here and there. He knows that we are on a tight budget and have to stick with it. So far he has not used his debit card with out checking.

I'm glad to know I'm not alone. We have talked and we are going to get back on budget.
