Making a few extra trips to various stores this weekend saved me a fair amount of money because I made returns on items I didn’t need to have.  *Joe and I decided (more like Joe had the idea and I agreed that it was very good one) to add a “household fund” to our cash withdrawal starting this month. I’ve been using the money I take out as “spending money” to buy things like cleaning supplies, toiletries, and replacing broken coffee pots,  and while it worked for nearly a year, it has recently been a huge stressor for both of us (mostly because it makes me mad and then I’m  no fun to be around, haha–hey isn’t admitting there’s a problem the first step in solving it). Maybe we are on a streak of bad luck, but we both agreed it’s better for each of us to contribute 10 bucks a month to a joint pot of money that is going to be used for boring household needs, so we can continue to enjoy life and don’t accidentally slide into overspending without regulation as we attempt to stay sane :)

I guess I know who wears the smarty pants in this relationship, but I’m glad he puts them to good use! Hope everyone had a good weekend!
