Anyone have success addressing the way their partner spends the weekly budget money? My partner prioritises beer and going out with his mates once a week. Problem is, he will spend ALL of his allocated money for the week rather than have say, one beer less and bringing home a bit of money which we could put aside for something else. It annoys me as I tend to save a bit of my weekly budget and put it towards gifts or take away yet he gets to spend ALL of his money. If I bring it up he gets the sulks because he feels like it was budgeted for him so why can’t he spend it.
