DHs Transformation...I didnt notice till now!

May 21st, 2006 at 03:19 am

Recently, DH was telling me about a friend of his who is going through a nasty breakup with his SO (primarily money related). I won't go into all the details, but when DH finished the story, he looked at me and told me how thankful he was that I was so careful with our money.

This was a BIG step for DH because he has always been the one who needed a money muzzle...and he really fought having to do without.

So today, we were on our way to Target to look at gas grills and he said "I am really thinking about spending money anymore. I have to justify it in my mind before I buy...and determine if it is a 'need or a want'."

(Do you think he noticed my whiplash fast look...and read my "Is this my husband??" thoughts..")

Im not quite sure HOW it happened...but I am so glad it did. Without trying or really talking about it, he has gotten hisself onto the same frugal page as I am. Smile

This is a momentus day for me....for us. I did not think it would ever come....and here it is!

    I know exactly how you feel! My DH came around after seeing how much we were able to save while literally making about one-quarter of what others in his family made - yet when a family member needed a large amount of money for an emergency, we were the only ones who were able to help. I think that was when he finally realized what security all the saving had brought us! Kudos!
