In our house we both have our allowances, and when it's gone, it's gone. It's not always fun, but it makes life smooth and it keeps the cash flow predictable. We also have a "home improvement/maintenance" account for stuff like garage doors. So if DH wants a garage door, all I have to do is say "it costs $200 and we only have $100 in the fund," or the garage door costs $200, we have $500, but we agreed that we were saving for a new sprinkler system. Are you willing to postpone the sprinkler system so you can have the garage door?" Sounds like it's time for your DH to learn about choices and delayed gratification.
