We don't hide money. I do the bills but my dh knows the budget and where the money goes and really is just concerned if everything goes to where it should-lol!! We both get "spending" money per week (not a lot) so we don't have to "ask" for money.

ITA with you. I have things at work I spend money on, birthday breakfasts, showers, retirement parties and gifts, etc. I don't think it is "hiding" that I don't tell him exactly how much I have spent.

We're extremely open in our house. I do the financial management, but dh knows pretty much everything. I dont' think I've ever hidden a purchase from him, nor him me (unless it was a gift situation).

I'm a control freak and worrier when it comes to money, so I talk about it a lot - so it would be very hard for me to hide anything ...

ITA. Dh usually ends up knowing what I bought, but not because I feel I have to confess; he ends up knowing because he sees me wear it, read it, whatever.

We also usually know when the other has gone otu to lunch, not to keep tabs on $$, but because we like to talk about food.

I know this was not to me but no, I don't consider that hiding. I would consider hiding hoarding away money in a separate account that the person did not know about.

Hiding requires intent, imo. Omission because it is trivial doesn't equal intent.
