I wish my DH would do that!

That's a really good idea.

I try to stick to my funded too but don't worry about it when I am buying diaper rash salve or the necessities like that since if I needed desitin, I would be buying that at the store. When it comes to diapers, I keep myself on a budget now that we have pretty much all we need. I use the money I earn doing my surveys or birthday money to buy things. Now I just get them for fun since DD will probably PT in the next year.

I am not trying to be funny at all, so please don't take offense. I am going to show this to my DH so he won't get so mad at me anymore. I do all the bills, but when I first started I bought quite a bit, he saw my pp once and started asking questions. I am actually very envious of you. I wish I had the means to buy $650 with of diapers total, let alone in a week! Holy crap! That is almost a rent payment for me What did you buy? I live my Diaper dreams through you all

Also my DH is a SAHD, so he sees EVERY package that comes into this house

Also not to hijack, but
Speaking of "allowance" what is yours? Not that you have to tell me $$ wise, but maybe % of what you make. I only ask because DH and I are SO careless with money, we never keep track of it and we sometimes just buy whatever
We vacationed in HI last month and missed our flight, we had to buy brand new tickets costing well over 2000. It kind of hit us that we need to be more responsible
So, this month we decided we each get a certain amount each paycheck- not including gas, grocery's, bills, ect. I don't know what is a good amount
....Maybe I need a financial adviser

in the past 9 days I have spent...about $700...but I am JUST starting to build a brand new stash...and pretty much everything I see I have to have! DH thinks we have more important things to buy for the baby, and he is probably right, so I will slow wayyy down from now on.

Ours is only $60 a month because I told him (he does our budget) to just give me what we budgeted for sposies, I also sell items so that helps.
We have a very set budget I get $200 everyother week for groceries and I just get that in cash 2x a month and thats what I have for what I need. SAme goes for gas, spending money etc. It helps us save, invest a lot!
