Well the only time my SO wants to go shopping is when we have no money.. he says that we can just go and look around, see what we need to get and then go back and buy it on payday! Well I think that's absolutely ridiculous! I like to go shopping when we can actually shop!!

What do you guys think?

Can you find some middle ground-- let him "shop" online and print up what he wants to buy? That way you can be home with him and still not be annoyed by spending money you don't have.

I don't think it's a big deal. As long as he's not going out and buying things when you don't have money then what's the harm in dreaming? It may annoy you, but I don't think it's one of those things that needs to be turned into a big deal. Maybe it's relaxing to him? As long as your finances aren't being compromised I wouldn't make anything of it. Oh, and I think the internet shopping is a good idea, too, if it really bugs you.

I personally can't handle "shopping" if I have no money! I'll go online and look around and see if theres anything I want when I can afford it.
I think online window shopping would help you out!

I have a couple of issues:
1. I rarely have any money to shop
2. IF I have money to shop and I do go, I NEVER can find anything! I always seem to find things for myself when I shop with no money


I tend to do both! Shop with no money and buy with no money

You ask my SO to go to the mall he asks what are we getting?, what stores are we going to?, how long are we going to be there?, do you wanna eat first or after? etc. It drives me crazy. Not like when I call my friend and ask her and she says okay and asks when to go and that's it. I just want to get out of the house and maybe people watch, eat a pretzel and complain about not being to afford the big diamond necklace in the window of a jewelery store. I keep mall trips a girl thing cause guys just don't seem to get it right. Maybe your husband doesn't get that if you see something you like and don't have the money for it and come back with money what you want may not be there next time? Like a pair of shoes or a piece of clothing. That usually happens to me when I shop and have no money.
