Reining in the DH

February 17th, 2006 at 03:46 am

My husband's spending is getting out of control. He just can't resist a good deal. So far his good deals have cost us $300 this month (the porch swing and the dolphin tour certificates). Now he wants to buy bamboo rugs for our house, there's a coupon right now.

Now, he hasn't bought anything we wouldn't buy anyway but we had a plan - save and buy slowly.

Now, I'm not sure if we will even have the cash to go to the estate sale. Not to mention that his truck needs work (I think there's something wrong with the 4WD and the brakes decided not to work) so we have no way to haul anything back.

We need chairs for our house. We really have no place for people to sit. We have the futon and the dining room chairs, but until he gets his truck fixed, we can't carry furniture. I'm very frustrated by this.

If I remind him that we have plans to pay off the credit cards first and save up, then he feels deprived. He so needs to grow up.

    I understand the feeling, but if people are comming to your house they will be there for the company not the chairs!

    And on the DH, well, it isn't easy to go from spend all you want to spend nothing.

    There is no excuse for DH, we've never been able to spend all you want. This is the first time in our married life we have both had professional jobs. The first 10 years of our marriage we made around $32k/year.

    I want comfy chairs because when people come to visit they are coming to stay for at least the weekend. So I want some place comfy for them to sit while they're here.

    But dh is back to being committed. I don't know if he found this blog or what, but today he told me he wanted to get the cc paid off by August (should be easily doable).
