i dun in the past.
just started recently practising it
do not know if it will be for long, but we are trying it out

in fact he was the one suggested this, after his salary is in, he will clear whatever his bill and instalment first, then keep aside some of his pocket money and then pass me the rest to keep

reason for doing this is bcos he is bad in keep his finance, he does not know where his money will go to if they are in his pocket

i am fine with this arrangement :)

we are single income family.
hubby's paycheck goes into our expenditure account (all giro payment to sch fees, utilities, phonebills etc take from this account).
we consult each other for big ticket items.
and also update each other the balance when we withdrew cash for usage so we dont go under the min. sum. :sweat:

Haha. Same here.
So I happily relinquish all finance matters & only need to concentrate on spending Kekeke :wink:
Once I see more money in bank account, I start spending more. And MIL & DH like to say i buy 'pang bo sai mi Kia' - useless stuff
