So ladies I have a question for you? I am a stay at home mother and there for that means only one income providing for this 7 people family. Now we will in the suburbs and it is a nice neighborhood with nice schools. We are not rich by no means however we have learned how to live within our budget. My husband and I share everything including money. He gives me $100 a month just for spending money on the things I want or need. Now what I use this money for is just basically to save in case something pops up or I like to buy things for my house or the kids. I am 24 and I used to love to spoil myself and buy myself this and that. . . Now I always just feel guilty buying myself anything. I am a saver mom and I like to coupon. I never put myself first. So my question is this??? Do you ladies need spending money to spoil yourself? Are you the type of mom that is materialistic? I was reading a post of a lady that has been given a $65 budget a day and specifies how this is not enough for her a day because she likes to go out to lunch, do hair, and blah blah blah. This is just not me. I mean I maintain my beauty of course however I just know I don't have a job so I feel as if it is wrong to act so selfish. Are there other SAHM out ther that put only there family first?
UPDATE! Thank you ladies for sharing with me I enjoyed chatting with you ^_^ I also would like to note I am not hating on the families that can afford to spend more then myself. . . You go on with your bad self. I am not materialistic nor do I expect my husband to pay me for accomplishing my wonderful mommy duties ^_^ You say a SAHM deserves to buy whatever she wants because of what she does around the house? I simply say my families happiness is all that I ask for. Knowing that I put a smile on my kids face by being there for them anytime they need me and knowing that I am pleasing my man and making him happy is my reward. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and opinions. OH SORRY LADIES THIS $100 BUDGET IS JUST EXTRA SPENDING MONEY FOR ME. THIS IS NOT FOR GROCERY'S OR TOILETRES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. JUST FOR ME FOR WHATEVER I WANT OR NEED. MY HUSBAND TAKES CARE OF ALL THE HOUSHOLD THINGS WE NEED AROUND THE HOUSE.
