See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I make $100 a week for babysitting and my husband of course brings home the bread. My problem is every time I get paid, that money always goes in his pocket. And it irritates me because that is the only money that comes in this house that I have control over. My husband is soooooooooo irresponsible with money. If he was better with money and didn't buy such stupid and useless stuff then I wouldn't care. Before he gets paid we plan what's going to be done with the money, ya know, what goes towards bills and gas and etc. And whatevers left we plan to save. But every time payday comes around he just won't save anything. He finds all kinds of ways to spend it. Like he went and spent 200 on system for his car. And I had no say so in it. I didn't find out til he came home with it. Of course I was mad. I told him that I didn't understand why he felt the need to spend money just because he has it in his pocket. Now I'm all up for treating yourself. I understand he works hard for his money and deserves that. But he never tells me he spends it, I never find out til we are freaking negative in the bank or all the money from babysitting is spent. And I'm just left wondering HOW?? I had 3 dollars left out of the 100. And I was gonna take that little bit and put it to the side because it does add up afterwards. And he straight up lied to me. He told me 3 dollars was left after he used it, well I went to go get it today and he said it was in his pants. So I look, and nothing. So I ask him where is it at, because I wanted to put it up for saving. And then he tells me he spent it. You spent it fine, whatever, but don't lie to me about it. We are always in trouble with our bills and stuff because of this. And if I ever speak up, it causes a fight. We would be living so comfortably if we weren't always late on our bills and spending so much unnecessary money on late fees and if he could just cut back on buying things. Ughh..
