Darling Hubby goes to the USA every year for a week, to Spain every year for a week and to Spain again every year for four days: all to play golf. I lie by omission but I'd like to see him tackle me about it Laughing .

Also Laughing at Marina's comment!

No, I don't tell DH, but he knows that my PayPal account is my "slush fund". I will put a little extra here and there into it. Some months I have a good amount to fill in on stuff and other months... a drought. Crying or Very sad

I buy w/ my paypal account, too. I'm hoping for some rain soon. Actually I need a flood at the rate I'm going through my account. Today I placed an order to buy SAMPLES! And the total came out to be $45. Geezz..what will happen if I liked these samples? Multiply that number by 6 (for the full-size price), and that scares the living daylight out of me.

My boyfriend is not a tyrant either, and he never asked about what I buy or how much as we're not married, and I use my own money. I just don't want him to think I'm crazy since I have so many NEW beauty products all over the bathroom counter. LOL Maybe I'm just paranoid.

[quote="loopylori"]I don't ask him how much he spends on beer. So he doesn't need to ask me what I spend on goodies.

Honestly he is happier not knowing, I am protecting him from stress because I love him. Smile[/quote]

I've been buying my boyfriend skincare products. Before he used to say I had so many things on the bathroom counter. Now he says I have TOO many things and we're fighting over the space Smile

I have never told him, except he goes out shopping with me.
It isn't secret Confused but it is not necessary to tell hime becuause I always spend my own money to get that stuff Bad Grin . He guess I spend a lot of money for skin care product Neutral but I don't care about it.
I work hard for my own money and I spend it for my pleasure. So, it is not concern about him. Doubt
Anyhow, I give some stuff which I don't like or made me breakout to him Bad Grin . It was a pity for throw away to bin. Bad Grin


Ditto for me. He doesn't have a say unless I'm complaining to him about my credit cards and debt.... then he might raise the issue.
He also spends his money on other things - like car parts - and I dont say a word (I would be a hypocrite.. Laughing ). However since we are DINKS (double income, no kids... Very Happy ), we can afford to do all this. Until we eventually buy that house, Confused , and then I decide my biological clock is ticking (as everyone keeps telling me..Shock Confused ), THEN i'll/we'll curb the spending and settle down.

Besides, by then I'll have so much in stock saved up, I wont need to buy it Wink

All our money is in the same account. The only time my DH is even aware is when we look at where our money is going. I am fortunate (or chose well) as my DH could care less. He thinks I'm beautiful and I've always told him that beauty doesn't come cheap!

Hell no! Laughing

We've been married 5 years, have joint banking accounts and Visa... even if I wanted to hide it, I couldn't. Besides, he's pretty laid back about it. I just make sure he can treat himself once in a while (he's a watch buff).

We have separate accounts even though we have lived together for 7 years. It's common here even amoung married couples to have it this way. I don't think that there even is a "joint account" here, not sure, though I don't know anyone who has one. It's for the best really, no arguing about money. We pay all our of our bills online and what's left over for each of us we decide how we want to spend it be that a vacation, night out, furniture etc... I actually spend less than he does. Either way he has his, I have mine. Smile

Well, I had to ask to make sure first because then I would have said, "Honey, I am not your mother, and I am sure you don't really want ME to look like your mother."

I told my husband once how much I spent on a facial and products and I thought his eyes were going to fall out of his head. But I don't feel guilty because it probably all evens out when you take into account what he spends on exercise equipment. At least I use what I buy. Bad Grin
