Not on board

July 23rd, 2007 at 08:39 am

I am still working on my goal of not over spending by $1000 this month! I have been strict, fallen off the wagon - ONCE, but my biggest challenge is gettin DH on board. Although all the debt is "my fault", it is amazing the amount he spends! Don't worry, when I show him he just gets mad. So I told him NO MORE spending! He is a cheap dude, so now that I have really put it out in front of him... hopefully we can get him! Smile

    Yep, if you could both feel assured that both of you are in this together, it could be so much easier. It could be another thing that you are lovingly doing together out of love for each other and your family. It wouldn't have to feel like a burden, but like a joy because of being something you are working on together....I mean---it could happen....Maybe appeal to his sense of romance in "roughing it" together?

    Ooh, I'm trying to cut back, too! It's so hard, though!

    BTW, thank you for visiting my blog! I entered your name in the contest!

    It's always hard to get the Dh on board! Do you do your finances together? That can help.

    I was listening to Dave Ramsey's podcast this morning, and a caller had the same problem. He suggested that the couple sit down together, and if the husband had any gripes about the budget, they should change it until they can come up with something they can both agree on. Then the husband would have more invested in the budget and would hopefully stick with it better.

    Hopefully he comes around soon.
