Back in his bachelor days, my husband used to be a big spender (until he ran out of big money to spend). I used to be a big saver (until I ran out of big money to save). Of course, things change when you get married and we all have things we need to learn from one another... so like all good wives, I strive to train my husband... :)
Here is a cute little conversation that I couldn't help recording in my journal some time ago on the subject of saving money, and of my husband's creative way of learning to save (while spending). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did when we had the conversation. :D Enjoy!
Miles – “Corine, where is your wallet?”
Corine – Pointing to my purse: “It’s in my purse. Why?”
Miles – “I need a 5 dollar bill.
Corine – “What about the money in your wallet? I put a bunch of money in there the other day; remember?”
Miles – “Yeah, I remember. But we were going to see how long I could keep it there; remember?”
Corine – LOL – “I see.”
Miles – LOL – “I just need 5 bucks more. Thanks!” (Big smile :)
*I’m still giggling. He can be such a comedian when he makes up his mind to be! ;D
