If you're a SAHM, how do you ask your DH for money?

How can I ask in a way that he doesn't get irritated? He works two jobs and I hate asking for money, but he never gives me money unless it's extra money like from our tax return.

I usually ask if he has any money on him. I never ask for any money so he knows if I do I need it. But it's usually something for the house or the lo. He also knows I'm more stingy than he is and hate spending the money anyway.

I don't. We have a joint account, I'm in the loop on our finances, I know what's reasonable/unreasonable to spend.

I never asked when I wasn't working. It's always been our money. I worked just as hard as he did.

Same here.

I don't ask. We have a joint account that I use whenever I want/need.

I don't ask. We have a joint account and I handle the finances. If I need/want something I just buy it.

I don't ask. I just spend what I want from our checking account. I have a debit card just like he does. It's OUR money even though he is the only one working.

If I need money, I take it out of our account.  I don't need to ask permission.  Though we both go to the other before making any type of large purchase.
