Food. I grab things at the grocery store without comparing prices. I think he spends too much on cable. We rarely watch the movie channels.

Everything! Clothes, shoes & handbags mainly.. but also wine. Although I’ve been trying to cut that out as part of my fitness plan. My new car too.. it’s not brand new, but he still thought it was more than I should be spending seeing as I’m just out of university!

He spends a fortune on computer stuff he uses once. And Apps! Always with the Apps! Plus a Netflix service we hardly use. But realistically, he’s a lot more careful than I am with funds.

Fireworks! I hate seeing those fireworks stands pop up around New Year’s and the 4th of July. He didn’t buy any this time, which I was thrilled about, but he usually spends a ton. I don’t understand the desire to blow up a bunch of money.

I usually spend too much money on going out to eat. I love eating out, but I’ve been avoiding it lately b/c I’m counting calories. Eating at home is much better for our bank account and my calorie count.

I think he spends too much on:

Gas, eating out and buying random things he never uses (snowboard, punching bag, books, etc)

 

I’m pretty sure he thinks I spend too much on shoes.

In general we are both pretty frugal. We don’t buy anything unless it is an actual need.Every once in awhile we will splurge on a starbucks specialty coffee or a really nice dinner out. But right now we aren’t really spending much on anything because we are saving for the wedding

ButhHe thinks I spend too much on my hair! I love going to the salon and the head massage is worth the price!

He spends a fair amount on golf and baseball.

He thinks I spend too much money on the wedding, I’m always buying stuff to diy projects and gifts for our party and family and he just doesn’t get it.

 

I think he spends too much money on softball!!! He is obsessed, really….. but it’s how we met sooo I guess I have to let it slide (a little)

Many things. He thinks I spend too much on takeout (I have a Vietnamese food addiction), coffee because I want the frosty fun flavored drinks I can’t make at home, and he can’t understand why I need $55 face cream when CVS sells it for $7.It works better, lasts longer, and I’m not constantly switching brands.

Sigh.

I think he spends too much money on his ridiculous tobacco habit. His many sports channels also drive up our cable bill into almost unmanageable rates. But otherwise we live very frugally.

I am a primary grades teacher so he would probably say I spend too much money on school stuff (which I TOTALLY do- but it’s all stuff I need being a second year teacher).  He doesn’t spend too much money on anything- he’s very good with money.

Everything.

HA! Seriously though. He thinks I spend too much money on clothes and accesory related things. I always get the comment “Don’t you already have ______?”. I guess since he’s a guy, he just doesn’t understand why I need to have more than one purse, pair of shoes, sweater, etc., etc. 🙂

I’m sure he would say that I spend too much money on shoes! For him, I wish he didn’t spend so much on video games! But we never argue about it because we keep ‘mad money’ in our separate bank accounts.  : )
