I wish DH would help out more with ours!! The farthest he goes with our finances is working and earning a paycheck! At any given time he doesn't ever know how much is in our acct. I balance the checkbook, I pay the bills, I set up the budget.....I hate doing it, but when we got together he hadn't balanced his checkbook in over 3 months and knew 'about' how much he had in his account. He cannot be trusted! lol

As far as diapers go, he doesn't really care. I tell him when he asks, which isn't very often. He just worries when I sell them that I won't have enough left. I just sold a dozen AIOs and he was like....that's a lot of your stash, will you have any left?! I was like 'take a look around, I have enough to get by' but that doesn't mean I won't buy more!!!

Re: Do you ever find yourself

Guilty! Esp now that I have a girl. :P Last night J says "Do you realize that you've spent like $200 on dipers in the last couple weeks?" Then this morning he's saying there's so many cd's that he want (the music ones ) and he needs to stop "window" shopping before he spends all our money. I said "Yeah, I know what you mean! I'm purposely avoiding ebay right now." He says, Yeah, but I'm getting bored with the music I have.. you can't really get bored with a diaper." Um.. yeah you can! Or you can find something that's just so darn cute that you must have it no matter how many diapers/covers you already have!

I'm an addict.

Re: Do you ever find yourself

I am a shopaholic, especially with diapers. I seem to get on kicks and diapers is the one I'm on right now. I just took inventory of diapers so I know what I have for when Lilly finally arrives. I have 73 (NB and Sm) not including prefolds, prefitteds, covers or orders on the way. It's crazy!! Dh and I have a very strange financial set up so he has no real idea. He makes all the money so he handles and pays all the bills. My money (from sewing and child support for ds) is used for groceries and my personal spending (which is all on the kids). Until recently I had no idea what the name of the gas and elecric company even was. I like it, it works for us and he never questions my spending (well, almost never).

Uhm no, not me...not ever, no way

No it's bad when you sew and belong to coops. You get obsessed with all the fabrics being offered, so it's not just this print/that color...It's this combo for a soaker pad, that outer, this inner, this closure. It never ends. It's like you think you are all set to start sewing, and then someone offers up something else. I had a great all sherpa diaper and I thought, hey I'll made more of those...And here I am waiting on a colored sherpa co-op because you know colored sherpa on the outer is SO much cuter than plain white....

Can't say I've done that. I LOVE looking at diapers but I control the budget so I feel guilty buying too much. Plus, if I spend too much on diapers DH will want to buy his own thing and I can't have that, his things are A LOT more expensive than diapers!
