Spending spree what to tell DH!

Light hearted post.

Just received the next catalogues. And just bought the whole (and I mean whole) panda (4 pages full) newborn range plus others. To be fair I did alternate in sizes. Spent over £300+... I'm only 20w.

Also bought DS and DD panda onesies...

Do I tell DH that I ordered them ages ago and they've only just come or that I've had them in the cupboard for ages? Or do I hope they come when he's not here and shove them in the cupboard.

Who else has already been spending on their bundle/s?!

I tell him the truth, also and we trust each other. I don't have to tell him what I spend, I don't lie about it either, I usually end up telling him what I've bought anyway. If it's my money, then he doesn't really care. If it's our money we discuss it, also.

But you were asking if you should tell him the stuff you had ordered had been in the cupboard for ages or that you ordered it a while ago. That's not the truth, is it?

If you tell him the truth then you'll just explain you bought it now confused

That was said jokingly and in a teasing manner based on my DH's personality towards money. As I said, it's a light hearted post. We talk on a night and he asks what I bought and I tell him. I know full well my son tells DH, he's very talkative and out-going and would never ask my son to lie.

It's a personality thing between DH & my's relationship. Nothing harmful or decitful (can't spell!) about it. smile

mumoftwoboys Spreadsheets are DH's baby. Everything is neat and calculated haha. I'm lucky that I managed to find work from home. Sorry to hear that you were made redundant but congrats on your PG. I'd love to go to work again. But I hate the thought of someone raising my kids. I'm overprotective at times!

lol, I sound like all of your DHs with the spreadsheets etc ;) My DH is clueless when it comes to money, when he saw our gas and electricity bill for the first time he informed me that we should turn the heating off and wear more clothes.....
Must admit though, I have done the whole hanging the newly purchased item up and then exclaiming to DH (when he asks) that ive had it for ages..........
