Do you tell your dh/so about every single purchase you make?

No. I spend more than I should. Most of it is for our son, but it's not all necessary. Dh would probably be a bit upset about it. I don't hide purchases, but I don't tell him I bought this or that.

Yeah, pretty much. If it's big I do, but do I bore him with the details of what I bought from the $1 rack in target? No lol! Well actually that's not true, I gotta tell him what cool thing I got for a buck!

No. I occasionally sneak in a shirt or shoes or something like that without telling him. Or I sneak in a gift here or there for him, so obviously I can't tell him that.
We never fight over money though, anything big, we discuss. The small stuff, no need to sweat it.

I normally do, just because I don't buy things very often and I'm usually excited about it. Now if it's a starbucks little splurge or something, I don't tell him. He likes it when I do things for myself once in awhile.

Not really, no. I mean, I tell him if we stay in budget or not. But I don't map out what I spent during the day. Most of the time it is on groceries, gas, or something else boring He doesn't tell me if he goes out to lunch or anything either. We just put it in the budget.

I didn't used to and that led to problems so now I do and we for the most part go shopping together so there is no hiding anything

Not really. Everything is shared though so I'm sure he knows about it all. I would never hide big stuff from him.

Since I need to get money from Tom he always knows what I get, Tom on the other hand doesn't always tell me and it pisses me off.

Pretty much the same here. I do show him everything I bought - not that he cares, but he pretends to be interested for my sake. LOL I never go crazy with spending, so he doesn't care what I buy. Anything really big we usually go buy together.
