Who spends more money, you or SO/DH?

Posted by   + Show Post

I have to say me. I would spend way more money if SO didn't set a limit for me. I always feel like we need something. I use to call SO cheap, but now I am thankful he is. We finally have emergency money.

I spend more in small amounts ...like my random trip to Target for toilet paper and I come home with 3 picture frames I found on clearance.

My dh is more likely to spend a large amount at once(like a new trail bike he just bought), but not very often. We probably balance everything out.

DHs toys cost a lot more than mine.

SO would, if I let him lol. Because of his spontaneous spending at times when we first got together 5 years ago, I being frugal, I took over the money lol. I'm not a huge investor or know the ins and outs of money saving, but I know that bills come first, followed by necessities, some stashed in a savings he isn't even aware of, then fun money lol.
