I guess me, although I don't know I don't really see it as a budget. It's more of we make X and have to pay out X and try to save X and the rest can be used for whatever lol.

We don't really sit down and budget. It's more of well..we have X, we need to pay out X, and we have X to do whatever we want with.

We pay all bills out of what DH makes and I make the fun money.

DH handles the bills and takes the lead on doing the taxes, but we talk about savings and big expenses together. We need to do a better job of tracking our expenses to see where it really goes because I feel like we do a good job not spending money when we shouldn't and live pretty frugally, but yet it seems it's always a struggle to save any significant amount from month to month. We're doing alright because DH gets commissions every once in awhile, but those are unpredictable and we can't rely on that money.

This is me!!!!

I don't carry around our debit card either - I always forget to write things down so DH is always pulling out cash for me to use or occasionally I'll use credit card but we are trying to stay away from that. Before married I just knew what I made and would debit it and occasionally would write it down. I'd go online about once a week and check to see if any other debits were made. If so I'd subtract them then - Horrible way of doing it and that's why DH handles the money around this house!! Plus, he's the only one with the job and the little money I make on ebay is used to cover a few things but mainly we are trying to build that up so we can move. Really big decisions are made together and he usually tells me what's going on with the bills but I let him handle it and trust him with everything.
