No matter how tight your budget, it is very important to allow an amount of money each week or fortnight that is for you to do with what you want. If you are in a relationship, it is imperative that each of you have a sum of money (large or small) to spend as you wish with no questions asked. This gives pleasure and also creates an abundance mentality

well spending isn't one of the good things that's i like and even if your budget isn't tight you better save your money for bad days thats what i am thinking and trying to make people love you by spending money isn't good So i just say keep your money for buying somethings good like house its still better then loan But spending money on someone you love is still good :)

That sounds like a great idea. We are on such a tight budget that that just wouldn't be possible. The small amount that I make on-line, goes towards spending money for our vacation in September. That means, no spending before then. They just raised the interest rate here so the mortgage just increased. Cost of living goes up but the paychecks never do. ho hum.

why not start your own business to make money at the same time. I did with my xango business and i can stay home with my family and be successful.

That is a great idea. I have just bought the home I've been renting for 8 years and the budget is VERY tight. Might try and do this for the kids too as they are missing out a bit because of the new purchase.

my boyfriend and i both have a little allowance that we allow ourselves each week to do what we want with it and we do not question each other what we do with it. i feel this is an important part in keep our relationship good.

This is good tip, thank you. We shoudl always leave some money for personal use. This is also some kind of reward to ourselves for our hard work.
