Traning my Husband to Save Money... A Comical Remembrance

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


  1. That is funny! It sounds like he is planning on spending that money.

  2. That's funny. It's the exact opposite in our home :)

  3. Very cute story!! I came across your blog and loved your bio. Esp. the telling what your (our) name means. Same name.. just different spelling. :-) Very cool!

    Following! Have a Great rest of the week!!

    Blessings & Hugs,

  4. Uh. That would be the other way around in this house.

    Me: What do you mean we don't have any money! I still have a gazillion more checks in my check book!!!!

  5. ... LOL! Ladies, I have a feeling I am the minority among women! :O Ah well... it works for me! ;D

    Thanks so much for your comments, I'll come by and visit you all at your blogs soon! :D

  6. LOL, that is exactly how I feel about my wallet :) and I'm no one's husband.

  7. That made me smile!!

  8. That's cute. What would we do without a sense of humor?


There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you...

THANK YOU for your comments; you add so much insight and brighten my day! :)
