forgive me for starting a new discussion on finances... My discussion is about my fiance and his money management. I found the other thread helpful too and it makes a LOT of sense to keep bank accounts seperate.
Fiance and I are only beginning to discuss how we each spend our money. And i'm discouraged about the way he spends his and how he never has any money... not to mention he has fallen behind on his child support and only makes excuses about not paying it. I'm not surprised that his ex is frustrated to the point of taking him to court and threatening jail time.
I read an interesting artical recently that said the simple truth about saving money (or getting rich) is to spend LESS than you make.... The article said even if you save $10 every pay check that it will keep adding up. Makes super sense to me. The artical also said it is the nickles and dimes that add up and usualy cause the financial stress. Or just simply the reason why you can't save money... fast food here... vending machine there. etc.
