That only seems to work on paper for me! My husband says, "Yes. I want a house! I want a new car! I want a Sony Playstation! I want to eat out tonight!"

He starts out agreeing that we should save up for a house (or whatever) and then realizes he has more immediate "needs". It's very, very frustrating!

Bummer. You have my sympathy as it sounds at least a little familiar. Still, I feel like we're making some progress. I count it as a major coup that no plastic has been used this calendar year. It's nip and tuck sometimes, but well worth it and I think she's beginning to see what I've been harping about for awhile now.

Don't give up!
