Dh and I each get $80/week cash in our hands to spend. That's for food/entertainment/groceries. When you run out, you are stuck with whatever the other wants to buy. I don't like the groceries that he comes home with (we work opposite shifts, so we don't usually go to the grocery store together). So unless I want to eat PB&J or hot dogs every day, I stay away from places like Target (my weakness). This system has seriously stopped my spending. (Even though I complain about it nonstop to anyone that will listen.) We try to keep busy with free activities like the library, the local pool, and parks. And splurge on Slurpees every once in awhile.
