My husband is so cheap! I'm 20 weeks along and I was out just browsing today and saw the cutest outfit for the baby. $10!!! I bought it. I showed my husband when he got home and he said that I'm wasting money.

Would he prefer that the baby be dressed in rags? Or does he expect you to dumpster dive for the stuff HIS baby will need?

He needs to loosen up!! Talk to him about how much he thinks a baby costs vs. what you hope to buy. Check out Craigslist and second hand stores for great deals on nice baby things.

That's the thing. We have been buying clothes at a second hand store that is really nice. So he was saying for $10 we could get 5 outfits instead of 1.

If money is tight, $10 on a baby outfit to wear twice is a waste. I'm sure the baby would have preferred a cute outfit from a garage sale and $9 in a college fund.

Money isn't tight. We have an account specifically for the new baby with close to 10k in it. He is just cheap.

I hear ya. my husband is the same way. he is cheap as hell. he hates spending money even when necessary. drives me crazy. I don't even ask him cuz if I do, he says no. if I just go and buy it he doesn't say anything.
