This is why we will always be poor.



The other day, I was staring at the foam in confusion.

"Weren't we going to get a new couch?"

He looked up from his textbook in surprise.

"Well, we haven't saved up enough in our apartment fund."

"What? But I haven't bought anything apartment-related in forever!"

He half smiled. "Well, whenever you go over your spending money, the extra money has to come from somewhere."

"...Really?"

"Yeah. Where did you think it was coming from?"

"I don't know. I guess I just thought there was a 'Helena's overspending again' fund."

He just smiled, and went back to his homework.

And I went back to my online shopping.

Online shopping is a demon. Seriously.

This was funny. I am horrible about sticking to a budget.

I love the foam couch. Seriously. At least it will give you fond memories of the early days of your marriage. Then your kids will think you are soooo old when you reminise!

I sort of wish there was a "Shell overspending account."

Yes! The Di Over Spending Account...know it well!
