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.

Dh. He thinks if he, or the kids, want it, he should buy it. That's why I am responsible for our finances.

 Dh. I rarely spend money unless it is on a bill. I put it all in savings. Dh is the one that will want or "need" something all the time. SMH

 Same here. My dh found a tablet on sale and kept bugging me about getting it. I was like we have a laptop, THREE (yes THREE) PS3s, a smartphone, and a smart tv. What the hell do you need a tablet for? He also wanted the new red PS3 just because it was red. Ugh! I hate telling him no, but someone has to have some sense. lol

Quoting ksueditz:

Definitely DH. I shop a lot, but he buys big ticket items.

Good question. I think it depends. My DH could spend an arm and a leg on gadgets and me on shoes and clothes. Most months, I out do him lol.

I think it's about equal, but he spends money on necessities like school books and a generator.  I spend money on coffee and clothes.

Me, but I am the one paying the bills, buying clothes for everybody, food etc. So... I do spend most of the money but the amount I spend for me or for what I think we need is not very large, though.
