Is one person in your family better with money then the other, I'm a semi-SAHM (long story lol), so DH makes most of the money. But if he has a debt card he will blow every penny and we will be in the hole. I basically pay the bills and give him cash.... does anyone else have to deal with this?


I was told that Dave Ramsey method works....

My husband is better than me.  I'm the spender in the family.

I handle the finances , he doesn't understand the concept of $5 here and $7 here adds up quickly.

This is a problem we have too! He paid 20 dollars for a money order from the bank instead of walking across the street to get one for 60 cent

banging head into wall

Haha I know the feeling , he spent $10 to fax some things at kinkos instead of waiting till that evening to go over to my moms office and fax them for free.
