My Fiance and I are coming up on our first holiday with a joint account.
We both have seperate accounts, but we don’t touch that money as it’s for emergencies only. We both have the same amount in each- the minimum to keep the account open.
So, that being said..how do yall buy presents when you only have 1 active (joint) account? My thing is, we both regularly check our accounts online to monitor spending. We don’t care if we buy small purchases on our own or each out to lunch once or twice a week (or buy coffee every morning… ) but we also make sure we don’t make any outrageous purchases or go below a certain level each month.
But, neither of us want to see where our presents are coming from and how much they cost.
