Here is my share for this week's topic " When I want something, something." Okay, when it comes to something material whether it is expensive or not....I ask hubby if it is okay to buy it.....and hubby does the same thing....especially when we think that we don't really need it. Most of the time, I get what I want if it is not expensive like $200 brand name purse or shoes :-); he thinks it is way expensive for a shoes or purse....which I agreed. Plus I feel guilty, too knowing that, that amount of money would be a big help if I send it to my family in the Philippines instead. But if he buys something expensive to work in his garage, I get to buy something expensive I need for the house, too (seldom happens). Since I earn a little bit from blogging, I can buy whatever I want if I want to, but he always says that I don't really need to spend it....and so I always use our money. We don't really have problems when we want something....and we don't let money be the cause of marital problems either. For us it is just a money.....and our marriage is more important than that. I'll say that I am one of those lucky wives who get to stay at home and still manage to send some help for my family in the Philippines on a regular basis. With that, I thank God for providing us the means to support our family and extended family overseas as well.
