This weekend’s quasi-comfortable discussion

How much are you comfortable spending with out first consulting your significant other? Can you spend $100 without discussing the purchase? $500? $1,000? Does your partner have the same number?

I think that my number is $100 with Mrs. Planner. It’s not that I feel that A) I need permission B) $100 is a lot of money or C) I can’t make money decisions on my own. I frankly can’t think of something I would need that costs more than $100 that I can’t take the time to discuss. I feel that the discussion helps hold me accountable to our financial goals.

Some of you may find that this could be the root of some deeper issues. I will not be held liable for possible progress.


****Gift purchases for the significant other don’t count.
