Becoming Debt Free in 2009

Are you the money nerd or the free spirit?

Filed under: Budget — ambercouric @ 8:35 am

How do you manage your finances?  Are you in it with the support of you husband or your significant other?  Is your DH or SO the money nerd and you like the spending part?  How does it work at your house?

I’ll explain our system later after I have updated my numbers.



  1. Hi there-well, I look after the finances in our house. We are currently just on one income and as I’m more computer literate, hubby is happy to leave it all to me to sort out and reconcile!

  3. I’m definitely the nerd! I do all the budgeting and organizing, and T comes to me whenever he wants to know something.

  4. I do all of the nitty-gritty of it, but we communicate regularly about it(I send him a rundown every month). And I’m more frugal, but he’s not much of a spender. He’s just not as CRAZY frugal as me! lol

  5. I am definitely the nerd in our house. I guess that comes with the territory since I am an accountant.

  6. DH and I have only just begun getting the finances in shape…but it’s clear that I am the nerd and he’s the free spirit. Very funny when you consider that he’s the math wiz and I barely got through it.

  7. I’m the frugal money nerd. My husband is the champagne taste with beer money.

  8. My fiancee and I are completely not normal in this respect. We’re BOTH money nerds! It’s one of the reason we keep our finances separate, we both have our own systems set up and we LIKE managing our money. Crazy, I know!
