After a number of loooong talks with the wife, along with showing her the 3 and 4 page bank statements for the past 6 months she's agreed to try using cash only and stop using the debit card. I'll be giving her money for the week for gas and lunch/spending and she'll use a check for groceries. As far as I'm aware no grocery stores around us allow writing the check for over the amount so I'm not worried about her pulling extra out like she does with the debit card. That seems to be her big problem. At the store so get cash back. Getting gas so buy some candy/jerky/soda whatever and get some cash back. Gonna go out with the girls get cash out from ATM then pay with debit card and spend cash on something else. Has anyone had any issues when trying this to get control of their spouses spending? What things should I be aware of or might I be missing? Thanks
