#127: His positivity/enthusiasm about our new budget August 2, 2011

In an attempt to live more frugally and responsibly, we are trying the envelope method of budgeting.  This is where you have separate envelopes for different things.  For example, the food/entertainment envelope: we each get x amount for the week for food and entertainment.  Husband was great.  He said, “I like this.”  Incredulously I asked, “Why do you like it?  I don’t!  I’d much rather spend whatever I want and not have to stick to a certain amount.”   Then I stopped myself.  He’s happy about budgeting and I’m criticizing?  Have I lost my mind?  Apparently so.  Maybe I’ll find it in that envelope.  🙂
