So, remember in my last blog where I was talking about needing more money? What I really should have said is that I feel like I need more control of my money. And when I say me, I mean my husband. We do not see eye-to-eye when it comes to money. My husband does not seem to have a saving plan at this point in our lives. He does, however, seem to have a great spending plan. It's like the money is burnin' a hole in his damn pocket! He always wants new shirts, new "work pants", new shoes, new socks, new hunting shit, you name it. He never seems to wonder if I want to buy anything new, or save any of our precious small incomes. It's very annoying. Like when he bought a shotgun, because it was on sale, and just simply charged it. Did I mention I HATE CREDIT CARD DEBT?
Needless to say, the zit came to a head last week, and we had a blow out fight. I mean huge. Like worse than I've ever fought with anyone in my life (I'm not a big fighter). The conclusion: he is now in charge of paying our bills, and we are splitting our left over income, after bills and shared living expenses. That way, he can buy his useless crap, and I can squander whatever I want. Believe me, I still don't feel 100% better about it, but now he can SEE where the money is going, and it will curb some of his spending habits, I'm hopeing.
And, with MY money spent on what I WANT, WHEN I Want...At least I will feel secure :)
