Where is the money?

Where is the money? I often hear that question.

I usually hear it from myself, but sometimes I hear it from my husband too. I actually don't like to hear that question because I never knew where my money was.

I spend money very fast, but I never buy unnecessary things. I usually spend money for groceries because when it comes to spending money the priority is to feed the family. There is no life without food.

I am happy when I can make someone happy so I sometimes buy some little things and presents for dear people. I don't even notice when I buy that things. I realize that I bought them when I hear people say "thank you" to me.

I like to buy toys for my son. We have a full room of toys but he really knows to play very nice and he inspires me to buy toys very often, especially toys that are good and beneficial for his mental and physical development.

Sometimes I like to pay some food outside in the restaurant where I would have a nice moments with my family. I like to go somewhere for the weekend and every outing costs money.

I like to buy clothes and shoes, especially boots but when it comes to buying it, all the money is already spent.

My life is not luxurious. I just buy the necessary things for ordinary life and some little unnecessary things that are not expensive. We can hardly afford to go on winter and summer vacation but we always succeed because it is important for us. When you work all year, you have to go on vacation. Life is not just eating food. There are also cultural and social events, travelling, kids content, books, car needs, clothes etc. We can not just eat, we must live.

My husband spends money carefully and wisely. He is smart "spender" and I am spontaneous "spender". Money is just a thing that helps me to buy other things that could make my life better. I am immaterial person who is never aware of how important money really is.

The family budget is usually in my hands and one thing is for sure, we are never hungry, but we also don't have money few days before salary and that is when I hear that annoying question "where is the money?"

I don't know where is the money... we ate it, I don't know... but I know that salaries in my country are very low and insufficient for a normal life in which, in addition to food, you will have money for some other pleasures when you pay all the bills and rates for bank credits that are waiting for you every month.

In fact, I think that for the first time I know where my money is. In my crypto wallet! 😊

Thank you very much for reading and have a nice day.

It is much easier to spend money than to earn it .. but it is nice to be able to buy what you want, the luxurious life is not important, the important thing is to be happy in your life

Maybe if it’s my turn to get married, I’ll prepare an excel. The moment i will hear that question, I’ll hand it to him- β€œhere’s the financial and crypto report sir” πŸ€ͺπŸ€ͺ

an interesting topic to discuss, from some of the families that exist in this world, problems often arise from conflicts or divorces are family financial problems and this should also be a good call to everyone. From the problems that are often experienced and also the actual context of managing finances, we must be wise, we must understand the existing income and expenses so that economic problems will not occur. I take the example we make a financial journal. reports of results and expenses for a month or a week. we can see that our finances are still in a normal stage or have exceeded especially expenses with this method we can see and manage existing finances. message wisely in managing finances so that there are no complicated problems in the family. so sorry if wrong. good luck to your family

Yes, that's right, financial problems can sometimes lead to family disagreements and even divorce. We should not allow that to happen. Thank you for detailed feedback.

When I started using a credit card for pretty much everything and at the end of each month I review everything that I have bought (or splurged on), I started being more careful. Especially when it comes to online shopping. When I was paying with my debit card, money was just vanishing and I never managed to keep track of it. Thankfully nowadays one doesn't really need to deal with cash anymore. I really dislike how the banknotes and especially the coins make your wallet bulge. Not to mention how easy it is to lose it...

Credit cards can really be dangerous if we are not careful. It has happened to me several times to lose my wallet, so I prefer to pay online.😊

I'd say a credit card is the safest payment option, actually. Of course, if one is feeding in their data to suspicious websites, then... yes, the consequences can be sad but so far in the few instances when I've had an issue with the shop, the bank was able to handle the situation on my behalf, so I didn't lose my money. If it happened with a debit card, then... well, one just relies on the decency of the shop who may or may not refund you.
