Hi all, this is my first Christmas as a SAHM, and I found it so difficult to cope with buying presents for DH. He always goes over the top with my presents, even though I tell him he shouldn't because we really, really need to be saving. I know that he's bought me an expensive new wrap, and probably spent a good $500 on me alone. To "even things out" I bought him a really nice recreation Van Gosh painting that he loves, and a new mah jong set. Plus all the little presents here and there, and before I know it I've spend $400! I don't have that kind of money! I had to take what little I had from my savings account that is supposed to be for emergency pet money. He told me I don't have to get him anything, or only little presents and that he just likes giving me nice things, but I still would feel really bad on Christmas if I was opening all these wonderful gifts and he's stuck with small presents. I know that in the future I should talk about upping my allowance weekly or something so I can save...but I don't know, I just feel kind of weird spending the money he earns at work on his presents.
Anyone on the same boat? How do you do presents in your house with no income?
