My Husband Makes Me Show Receipts for Everything I Buy

Pay Dirt is Slate’s new money advice column. Have a question? Send it to Athena and Elizabeth here. (It’s anonymous!) My partner grew up poor, while I grew up more middle-class. He has always controlled all our finances, and spends hours monthly on budgeting and checking bills, credit cards, etc. I’ve never known anybody who obsesses like this. All income, including gifts, goes to the joint account, and I have to keep receipts for everything I buy, down to a coffee, so he can record and check it. We have a fairly big (but manageable) mortgage, and our child has added many more costs to our lives, but otherwise we’re OK.

For people who are starting out with credit cards, paying the bill can be more confusing than expected. When you log in to your online account and go to the payment page, there will be three amount options: The minimum balance, statement balance, and current balance. Or, you can choose to pay a custom amount.

How to Hack Your Monthly Bills and Save for What You Really Want This Summer

As we slowly start to return to “normal” life, there are a lot of things we would rather put our hard-earned cash towards than bills — like restaurant reservations or plane tickets. As our monthly expenses are likely to include a bit more of the outside world, it’s a particularly good time to review where your money is going every month, and where you might be able to save a few dollars. With these tips in mind, you may just be able to scrounge up enough to splurge on new luggage, too.
