Would this frustrate you?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Everyday dh takes $20 to work. We agreed that we can afford for him to spend $10 a day (ciggs, snacks and drinks) but he continuously takes $20 and spends it all.

He also gets a soda everyday on his way home. He never brings home anything for me to drink, just a soda for himself.

I spend $10-15 a week in groceries because I shop at dollar tree. I only get chicken and premade meatballs because we can't afford much. We don't qualify for pa so I dont get to buy meats. He spends more in 1 day than I do in 1 week!

Would this bother you?

Eta: I make him a lunch everyday. It's usually leftovers but it's enough to fill him up!!

Yea no shit. That makes no sense. Buy some lunch meat and bread to take to work and a case of generic soda at the dollar store. Makes no sense for him to blow that money

Hell yeah it would. That's 400$ a month while you are buying chicken and meatballs from the $$ store. Something is way off there.

I pack his lunch everyday. It's usually left overs if we have any. He wants fountain drinks I have gotten sodas but he doesn't drink them

Uh..yeah!!! You need to talk to him. I get frustrated with my husband for spending too much on snacks and energy drinks. One month I counted it up and sometimes he wastes 200-300 a month on fast food and all that crap. It pisses me off!

That's what I told him! Even if it's only $10 then it's $70 a week I could use for food! I don't get to eat except dinner because I give him leftovers so there's nothing here for me and ds gets sandwiches
