I have a 20 dollar bill, a card for an ice cream place where I can get a free cone if I buy 10 with 2 stamps on it, an old fortune from a chinese restaurant, my driver's license, a couple of credit cards, my retired Army ID, my KOA card, my AARP card, and a piece of paper with a phone number on it but no name which I may try calling tonight just to see who it is.

You make me sound like a woman that goes around with all this **** in her pockets. No, just essentials. I used to carry a purse in HS, always got crap stolen out of it. I said the hell with it and carried what I needed in my pockets. I have ever since. All that womany crap is for the birds anyway.

Your purse sounds like mine. My DH is always telling me I have too much crap in it. I just bought a new purse and I don't think it will all fit in there. I do though have my secrest stash in there $200. I keep tucking $20 bills in there, but not using them. SSSSHHHHHHHH don't tell DH.

In defense of most women

We are the ones who carry things for those What If moments.
What if we are in an accident? Need the insurance cards.
What if the kids need their hands/faces cleaned? Need wipes.
What if we need an unexpected large purchase? Need lots of credit cards.
What if the store has discounts? Need the store member card.
You get the idea. Women are beasts of burden. Seriously. Check out some of the families going into the parks at WDW. The women are loaded down with bags, purses, cameras etc. while the husband is only wearing a lost, confused look.

Yes, we are. My DH refers to my purse as the "P.O.D.S." (while he's handing me stuff to put in it for him). I've had & used the same purse since 2003. It's an "old lady" type with pockets for everything. Changing purses is akin to moving. You never find anything in your house after you've moved! When DH asks me: "Where's such-n-such?" I can recall exactly where it was in our previous home. I have a hard time finding it in our current home....and we've lived there 4 years now - and - it's 1/3 the size of our previous house. Go figure!:confused3

I was reading the last posts on this thread while the Help Desk was trying to get my computer working again, and I busted out laughing right in the guy's ear. Just couldn't hold it back any more.

This could be dangerous to read while working. My co-workers won't answer my calls if I keep laughing at them for no reason.

Went grocery shopping with DW last night so the $79 is history and it all fit in 2 baags! It reminded me of why we don't shop together much - it took her 35 minutes to pick out 1 birthday card, 6 frozen dinners and some yogurt - 35 minutes!

ftwildernessguy
08-13-2008, 09:42 AM
I hate shopping with my wife as much as she hates shopping with me. She has no system. She runs willy nilly around the store getting each item on her list in the order she wrote it. By the end, you've gone around the store 18 times and are exhausted. My system - do the big outside loop first, getting the bread, meat and milk. Then go past each aisle hesitating enough to see if you need anything in that row. If not, go to the next. If so, go down the aisle and pick up the item, continuing to the end of the aisle where you go on to the next. One round trip in the store, you're done in a half hour or less, and have enough energy to go to Lowes.

VACAMPER
08-13-2008, 09:59 AM
I hate when my Dh goes with me because I spend twice the amount of money. He throws so much junk we don't need in the cart. It's like having the kids along. I know the layout of the store so well I can put my list in order by whats on each aisle. Starting in the back and working my way to the checkout lanes.

Me & my ol'lady shop pretty well together....she gets the food while I check out the camping stuff, the automotive stuff, the power tools, and fishing supplies. She's usually done by the time Im finished.....then Im allowed to ask for ONE toy to bring home with me if Ive been good.

08-13-2008, 11:29 AM
Erica hates shopping with me.... I follow right behind her asking are you done yet, every five seconds. She gets so mad! Then finally she just starts laughing. So she usually leaves me at home. When she does send me by myself, I don't buy what she wants, just what catches Matt and my eye, and then she goes by herself, to get what I missed. That's why I never shop anymore. It worked. LOL

My DH learned it long ago. He would just be miserable in the store. Cranky, nasty, mumble rude things about people walking by so they could almost hear him. (I'm sure some of them DID hear him. :eek:) He would just basically embarrass me. Now he doesn't have to go because I can't trust him to behave. See, I don't need kids - I have him. :sad2:

Every pay day the bills and such get paid and then the rest gets divied up between groceries, gas, entertainment, gifts, clothes, etc, etc....and they all have their own envelopes. Whatever is left in these envelopes at the next pay day gets put in the Disney fund.:banana: My babysitting money goes straight to savings unless we have an emergency.

It takes a little effort in planning and getting the right amount out of the ATM, but it works well for me because I can see the cash and when my envelope gets thin I know to start bugeting a little more wisely. When I just swipe a debit card, somehow my money goes.....Poof!

Wow, that might help, but after I pay the bills, it is hard to divide that last $10 bill up between all those things. (Sorry Matt, you can't eat this pay, maybe next week ) LOL

I hear ya, John! It seems a waste to use up an entire envelope just to hold a dime.

Before I was married, I used the Fish Bowl & Window Shade method.
All the bills go into a fish bowl, draw out one at a time, pay it, keep doing this til money was gone,,,,,then pull the window shades and if bill collectors knocked at the door,,,,be beawrry, beawrry quiet.:rotfl2: :rotfl2:

Went grocery shopping with DW last night so the $79 is history and it all fit in 2 baags! It reminded me of why we don't shop together much - it took her 35 minutes to pick out 1 birthday card, 6 frozen dinners and some yogurt - 35 minutes!

Al is not exagerating. If anything - he's probably underestimating the time he was at the store with his DW. I absolutely adore Al's DW, but I won't shop with her.

I HATE to shop. If I don't find what I'm looking for in a few minutes,,,I'm outta there. That includes clothes and shoes, too. When I find a style of pants or tops that fit me well, I buy one of every color they have. Then I'm done for the year.

Grocery shopping the same way.... I have a list, get what I need, and get out of there. I have better things to do...like spending time on the Disboard!!:thumbsup2
