Belt tightening is something we need to be doing.
It's not that hubs is earning little. He's earning enough. But we still haven't really limited ourselves to a budget, and so, there are often these impulsive buys to make each other feel good and what-not, we end up with no savings at all.
I asked hubby not to feel sad about the money he's bringing in, but to feel sad that he and I aren't spending it more wisely.
So now, we begin anew. I hope to take a leaf from my fellow n@wies who made calculators at groceries their best friend.
Oh and may I just say... hubs enjoyed his Father's Day celebration :)
