I don't. I've thought about doing a grocery budget but I just can't get motivated.

 No, we don't budget our money, we buy what we want, when we want.

 I control the money but he makes it...lol.

I don;t follow a budget in any way, but definitely know what we can spend.

 Me either! I just want to get the shopping done, but then feel guilty I don;t bidget or clip coupons.

Quoting egyptian_mommy: I don't. I've thought about doing a grocery budget but I just can't get motivated.

That's how we used to be, then life changed.
How many kiddos do you have?

Do you guys talk about the money together or do you just let him know as you go?

I dont really follow a budget at all. 

I am a cheap person in general and so is DF, only thing we have agreed on is any major purchases we talk about it first and look where we are in our funds at that time etc....

If its a need purchase for the house then we do it anyways (I am talking more of a want) purchase that is more on $$$ side. lol 

I do and so does he know what we can afford to spend. We basically do as we please, but are super cheap at it too. lol
