This was the motivator I needed to take over the finances. He would just go into the savings and transfer the money. There is no category in our budget for home repairs and other things that we will need to use our money for. My son was giving me grief that my husband had no money if he wanted to get a sandwich while he was out. I pay for my own clothes, doctor's visits and help with the bills. I want to sell my van because it just sits. It costs us car insurance, maintenance, repairs and we have no garage or carport, so it is out in the weather. Right now, the air conditioning doesn't work and hubby's car needs the defrosters checked and fixed. I don't know what to do if hubby doesn't snap out of it. My car is a 1995 Dodge Caravan and the paint is gone off the hood of it.
The elderly housing here has bed bugs in their building. The value of our home dropped from what we paid, $160,000 to an estimated value of $136,704. We have less than $6,000 in savings. Hubby's retirement check pays the mortgage. I guess I will try to keep the books and hope that I won't be looking for a place to live in my old age. I threatened to divorce him if this happened again after the third time. This is the fourth time. 5 days ago
