    Default am i the crazy one?

    this is a little embarrassing, but the other day i opened up a checking account for all things brady...toys, treats, vet visits, food and so on...i'm going to put a certain amount in there every paycheck so that i can budget my spending on him because i am spending way too much money on stuff for him and i have to start to control it! if any one else is crazy like me, please let me know!

    LOL Sounds like a kind of good idea to keep the spending under control ... I'm afraid to know what I spend on my baby!!

    I am afraid to know what I spend. I can totally pass up something for myself but if I see a toy he might like I can always justify it!

    Lauren, great idea. I do this for certain major monthly expenses. That way they are out of my regular account and there when I need it.
    I use Quicken to track my expenses and trust me, I have only had Maddy since Dec 5th and I know EXACTLY what she has cost. It's scary.

    p.s. I think I will program Quicken to read "dog bakery" as groceries instead of dog expenses. Ha Ha.
