LOL, sounds like me and my mad money fund. Hubby has no idea where, or how much is in there. I'll try all avenues to get something before I dip into there. :lol:

He caught onto one of the ways that I am able to add funds to it though....if I ever have to return something...I keep the cash. :P

But you know what? He pays all the bills...and literally knows every dime I spend, minus my special fund, of course.... I am at home with my kids...which is the job I absolutley love...but obviously it doesn't provide a paycheck. I need some autonomy...and this is the way that I get it.

Try bring lunch to work (I hate Lean Cuisine meals!) rather than eating out. And, cut back on Starbucks.

That works on my BF. I didn't expect him to give in or anything but I was really bummed that I couldn't get this one bag and he got it for me and I was so surprised (and happy!).
