I thought only children had allowances, not people over 21. You're trying hard Zoomerang, but just like your last bragging post you still come off as a TOOL.

Did you know that Zoomerang shaves with money?

A penny shaved is a penny earned, right guys?!

I coined that phrase.

...

Does that impress you?

i get an allowance fom my husband which i use to buy toiletries and essential grocery items. as he is the main, well, sole, really, breadwinner, he is in charge of the monies. he is generous though. if i ever have any left over at the end of the week, i am allowed to keep the remainder to buy more potatoes and shampoo and things. i find it invaluable in teaching me about managing money.

I couldn't believe that either. There's no way I would keep any change remaining from my husband's money budgeted for food -- especially to spend on luxury items. Clearly you haven't learned enough about money management, Angela Harlem, and you also haven't learned anything about being a respectful wife!

I'm not sure you're being fair on Angela Harlem here meegannie. It could be that she and her husband are still in an early phase of their marriage, and that he hasn't worked out the proper dynamics here. I remember when I first got my wife, it took me a while to figure out what was best for her and how to whip her into shape (figure of speech of course, I don't mean literally - even though I came close once or twice hehe).

When I had an allowance, I spent it on books and earrings.

and I quote...my dear dear mother and my conversation back in the day.

me: "mom, other kids get an allowance. Can I get one?"
mom: "Do you like eating dinner?"
me: "yes"
mom: "I cook it for you! There's your allowance"
I've never had allowance and as soon as I was 18, I was on my own.

What is the deal with money all the time? I mean, yah it's important, but being rich, having a big house, nice car, etc. doesn't impress me very much. If you're rich, but you're a jack-ass, I won't like you any more than if you're a poor jack-ass.
But I'll be a low paid teacher... so maybe I'm just saying this to boost me ego.
