keeping the spouse in check

keeping the spouse in check

Someone mentioned that their hub/significant other isn't quite as thrifty as she is... I have the same problem. Just some tips I use (and they've worked for me)... 1. Do not take him/her into the supermarket! My husband seems allergic to items on sale (or so it seems)... I make a point NOT to take him along. If we're car pooling with errands, I have him drop me off and pick me up. A little less convinient, but far cheaper and less annoying! 2. Whenever s/he says 'gosh, let's go out to eat'... always be ready with 'I tried a new lasangna recipe, it's in the fridge'/'I was really craving the leftovers from yesterday'/'you know, lets just stay home and watch this great movie'. (unless you want to go out.. if it's in the budget, go for it!) I've cut my husband down from 3Xs a week out to maybe once every two weeks, and I always try to shoot for a lunch. Any other tips in keeping husband/wife/significant other from breaking the budget? Everone has different weaknesses.. luckily my husband isn't a clothes horse, and he's pretty agreeable to changes/suggestions (as long as we don't cancel the cable!)
