Is it an age old myth that this is even possible?? My ****ing wife just doesn't get it! We lost her salary since we moved and her health benefits and have kid #2 on the way and she just keep spending. Oh this shirt was only $3, this was only $4, yeah, it all adds up.
I keep telling her she is going on a budget but she has no concept of money or finances. It drives me freaking nuts and I cannot get another bill for $500 or $1,000 that I am not expecting.
My ex used to put a thousand a month on the credit card... just from home shopping network!
Works both ways LK .Hubby is the spender in this family and it drives me ****ing crazy. I thought by getting him a new bike he would quit blowing all his money on parts for his projects .The week after he bought the new bike he blew 300 on an engine for a new bike project.
When it comes time to buy groceries and she is hungry, tell her how good that new shirt she bought tastes
You need to blow up to make your point than when you have her attention have a stern
but compassionate discussion......
Have you tried to PIITB?
its hopeless i gave up
Give them a prepaid card so when it's empty they can't buy shit else with it.
I'm lucky my wife hates shopping, the only one that buys stuff is me buying PL gear
Man that's a tough one.
Being seperated going on divorced , I don't think I'm in a position to give advice on these matters.
Take away the cards ... Alot cash to her for the necessities
Been trying for quite some time, if you figure out a way please let us all know.
Dont EVER give a woman your cards EVER idc how much u trust her lol.
