What's your budgeting routine? How often do you get together with your spouse to go over finances, pay bills, etc? How exactly do you keep track of your expenditures?
I need help. I know how to go through my bank statements and I have a spreadsheet with spaces for things like rent, utitlies, food, but I don't know what to put in those spots because my husband's account is separate and it's HIS income that pays for 95% of our lives. It's like pulling teeth to get the two of us to actually SIT DOWN and go over finances. He's like an ostrich who wants to bury his head in the sand. If I could get us into an idiot-proof budgeting routine, then maybe I can finally get him on board with controlling our finances.
Again, I want to stress idiot-proof. I have severe ADHD and he's just plain immature, LOL.
