Who handles the bills ?

I was listening to a talk radio show this morning. LOVE This show, a conversation they were having was pissing me off and if I wasn't driving I would have called in to weigh in.

So I figured - ehh cafemom will help with this.

Who pays the bills in your house? I'm not asking who makes the money - who calls the light company or writes the check for the rent/mortage?

Who goes grocery shopping?

Who spends the money pretty much? 

My husband and I both work full time. It all goes into my bank account, and I pay all the bills, go grocery shopping, make sure our home has what it needs etc.

Who handles it in your home?

I do.  It's part of running the household, which is what I do.  My husband works, I don't.

I do, I'm a SAHM so it's easy for me to do that while he's at work

he pays the bills (writes the checks, uses his account for online bill pay, etc....)

i go to the grocery store (unless we go to SAMS & then he goes too.  SAMS freaks me out & i refuse to go by myself)

we both spend money equally, i think.

I do. If SO had any money in his pocket, it wouldn't be there long before he's buying a new computer or something else that we don't need. Paychecks go to an account solely in my name, I pay all the bills as they come in, I budget what is left for food and gas, and put the remaining into a savings he has zero clue about. I do it for his own good lol

If I was in charge of the finances everything would go a lot smoother. I'm working on fixing that :/
