visa bill

January 23rd, 2007 at 01:31 am

I've been trying to spend less and I though I was doing okay with this then came the visa bill. I was logging in most items on a monthly spending log so I thought I knew how much was charged. Unfortunately, DH was not always telling me when he spent money, or how much (usually didn't have receipts). According to my log, I should only owe apporximately $300.. This is after paying off a couple hundred here and there. (We use the visa for everything as we get rebates back).
The bill was $1500.00!!!!!! It took a bunch of research to find out why it was so high. My last 2 payments totalling $700 hadn't been credited yet. So that left a total of approximately $800, I knew about $300. The rest were Christmas presents (to me so he couldn't tell me as I was logging things in December), and some gifts I knew he bought, but didn't have receipts for me.

I hate January, between Christmas bills, life insurance, car insurance and all the regular bills I feel like I spend more than I have. Realistically, the money is there, I just hate these large bills.

    Wow, totally. January is always a shocker. I guess you can only plan, plan, plan next year to cover things ahead of time and plan for him to spend about $300.
    Good luck and don't let it get you down!

    Oh, I totally know how you feel!!! I always 'know' what the visa bill is and then...surprise...dh used it and forgot to tell me.

    We've been married for 17 years, so I've become accustomed to just dealing with it. I put money away every month for Christmas and I always add $200 into a secret stash so when Dh goes over his alloted amount (which he always does) I have the extra to cover it. I used to stress and fret over it...then I got smart. Okay, secretive, but smart sounds better!
