How much is your allowance from hubby?
« on: November 24, 2013, 03:20:09 am »
I know someone who got pregrant then took a maternity leave for several months. All those times never sya nag shopping nag parlor kasi wala daw sya pera. Hubby buys her NEEDS naman daw, pero yun konting mga WANTS nya, sa savings nya daw kinukuha although hubby can afford naman. Minsan nag aya mag coffee friend nya ang gagawin nya magwiwithdraw sya ng pera kasi nahihiya sya sa hubby nya, minsan pag nasa mall daw sila at may bibili sya, never naman nag offer si hubby na sya magbayad. Sad sya kasi feeling nya deprive sya. Sabi ko dapat me allowance sya kaunti naman, pampasaya naman ni wife hehe.

Nakwento ko nga yun sa hubby ko, ang sama daw nun guy,  :-\  ??? ako naman wala ako allowance kasi i have stable career aside sa business but  he still provides for me. Pinapahawak nya sa kin yun income ng business nya pero ayoko kasi may sarili din ako. He pays for everything as in EVERYTHING kaya solong solo ko money ko.

Another friend of mine naman, hubby gives her 8k per month pang sariling gastos, pang parlor pang shopping ng konti although she has a job :)

How about you ladies? Anong set up nyo ni hubby. Kahit ba may work kayo binibigyan nya kayo ng allowance?

i am a stay-at-home mom. binibigyan ako ni hubby ng certain amount monthly. my needs are included in the budget. my wants sometimes comes from his budget, sometimes from the budget that he gives me. since hindi naman ako magastos na tao, nasesave ko yung binibigay nya sa akin.

i also have personal savings and investment. hindi ko sya nagagalaw kasi provided naman ako ni hubby.
my husband and son are my life <3

Hubby provides for EVERYTHING, ultimo gas ng kotse ko, make up allowance etc. he also sets twice a year shopping for me and my son. So you can get anything you like. As for gadgets, sya mismo ang bumibili ng gadgets ko and for my son too.  kahit kalandian ko he provides for it. Then aside from that, I have my allowance every week rin.

Btw I work lang if I want too. Meaning, if sinisipag lang ako saka ako magwowork. Full time housewife nga siguro macoconsider ako.

I have a job and my full salary I just save in my own savings account. For all of my needs, wants as well as household stuff like groceries, utilities, etc., I have a credit card na si hubby ang nag babayad. My checking account si hubby din nagpopondo, sometimes ako pero mostly galing sa kanya.

I don't get allowance, I'm well provided by hubby with everything I want/need  but I have my own savings from my previous job before moving overseas and I don't touch it. As long as he knows what I'm buying he's good :D

I get a monthly personal allowance, which is usually untouched and just sits in my bank account. For my needs and wants, husband provides for almost everything. I'm not abusado din naman kasi so he knows I won't squander his money naman. I use both my personal credit cards and the supplementary CC c/o my husband when I shop, and he pays for them. His only request is that I remember what I bought and when/where i used the CC para when the bill comes we can check na walang unauthorized charges due to credit card fraud. So what I do, I give him all the charge slips I signed, for his records.

He also gives me money for household revolving funds. So most of the time dun ako kumukuha ng daily panggastos, including my occasional solo spa or salon trips. He replenishes the revolving fund, I just tell him when it goes low. If magkasama naman kami, halos sya na gumagastos, except when I expressly tell him na it's my treat.

I have savings from my previous corporate job, plus the monthly personal allowance he gives me. Nababawasan ko lang yung personal money ko pag for example e pambili ng gifts (material gift, nice lunch/dinner treat, or di kaya e minor travel) for him like his bday, Chistmas, anniversaries or kahit walang occasion, pag feel ko sya bigyan ng gift.

We set aside a part of the household budget for our shopping, pati travel. Meron din sa budget yung funds na para pambigay sa families namin, like pag bday nila or pag Christmas, etc. Meron din sa budget yung for donation, para pag me calamities like the recent earthquake and the typhoon Yolanda e meron kami ready funds pambigay.

i dont have allowance from my husband but he provides everything we need.
im a stay at home mom and an online seller.
since hindi naman ganon kalake sweldo ng husband ko, part of what i earn also goes to our 4 schooling kids.
i dont feel deprived kase hindi naman ako maluho na tao and ako may hawak ng budget ng household namin. i can do whatever i want with the money as long as our needs are covered.

^aquacharlie i really admire you for giving the best advice ever.

sa amin namang mag-asawa he would give me monthly allowance, so yun ang napupunta sa savings ko then i have a part-time job and yun ang panggastos ko but since kuripot ako nilalagay ko rin mostly sa savings ko. yung konting kinikita ko sa pinas nilalagay ko sa business ng sis-in-law ko without interest for 2 years, so yun naman ang gagamitin ko panggastos tuwing magbabakasyon ako ng pinas.

Hhhhm, si hubby binigay sakin ang ATM nya. Yung una ayaw kong tanggapin pa, kako bigyan nalang nya ako, since nag wowork din naman kami pareho. Pero sabi nya, ako nalang daw magbigay sa kanya. Ang kinukuha lang nya is baon nya for work. Lahat ng bills nya ako na nag pe-pay. Minsan aabutan ko sya ng sobra, kasi naman, sa sobrang tipid nya, gusto nya na kinukuha sakin is yung pambaon lang nya talaga. Eh what if mahulog yung pera nya, baka maglakad na sya pauwi. hehe

parehas tayo sis katrinac, yung atm ni hubby na sa akin. Pero kayo parehas may work kami naman ni hubby siya lang yung may work, kelangan ko magstop kasi worried siya na sobrang layo ng byahe ko pag lumipat na kami ng house. Mas okay pa daw na mawalan muna ako ng work or higpit sinturon muna ng ilang panahon kesa daw mawala si baby namin. Hirap pa naman ako magbuntis kaya super alaga siya. Yun nga lang super tipid siya. Minsan sa sobrang OT niya nagkakasakit na siya. Sinasabihan ko na huwag ng mag OT kasi mas mahirap yung siya yung magkasakit.

Kaso kahit pala asawa mo na nahihiya ka pa rin tanggapin yung ATM niya kasi alam mo siya yung nagpakahirap doon sa pera na yun. Pero lahat naman ng binibili ko pinapakita ko sa kaniya at lahat naman yun kay baby namin hehe :)

Nasa akin din ang ATM ni Hubby, pag sahod nya dalawa kami lagi mag-wiwithdraw tapos hahawakan lang nya then ibibigay na lahat sa akin.. hehe.. pareho kaming may work pero gusto nya na sa akin yung ATM nya & ako ang mag-budget para sa lahat ng binabayaran namin.. Nanghihingi lang sya sa akin pag need nya na ng pang gas sa Motor na gamit nya pang pasok sa work..:)

Wala ako allowance pero lahat naman kasi ng needs at wants ko pinoprovide ni partner. Pero syempre hindi naman ako abuso. Ang luho ko lang naman talaga is mag-yarn shopping. Meron kaming "household ATM" card. Ako may hawak nun..Every month naglalagay sya ng money dun. Dun na kukunin yung pambayad ng bahay, food, bills etc. Tapos he makes sure na laging may 3k cash sa wallet ko, para daw pag kinailangan ko bigla ng cash at walang malapit na ATM. What I like is that I don't need to justify every purchase I make. Maybe because he knows I am responsible with money.

I have my own savings account din. Andun yung savings ko when I was still working. And I have a small sideline (I make crocheted items). Lahat ng income ko dun napupunta sa savings.

hubby and I are both working. pinagsasama namin yung sahod namin, then dun na namin sineseperate for specifics, as per allowance, meron naman ako, 3000 pesos nga lang to buy my wants, yung needs we get it from our joint money. it's working and fine with me so no complain.
This is me, I am lovingly and uniquely created by God and I love me! Lol

then kanya kanya bili ng wants..
there are times na impulse bibilhan din ako ni hubby... ;)
first love is important but last love is VERY VERY important.... because first love teaches what is love and last love teaches WHAT IS LIFE.

My husband and I are on the same field of work with the same job title/position but in different companies. Honestly speaking, I earn more than my husband because I am more tenured in the position (plus I am with a bigger company). So to answer the question, I don't get a fixed allowance from him.

However, due to a dispute in our finances a couple of months ago, ALL but his allowance goes to me. Do I like this set up? I honestly don't because I hate that he has to live on allowance. But this is the only way to get rid of people who want to milk money out of him. Going back to the topic again, I don't get a fixed allowance from him but when I run out of work allowance (gas or food), he provides it for me. It is very rare naman because I am very organized and strict, for lack of a better term, with our finances. What I love about him is that even though he is the one on allowance, he never fails to spoil me or indulge me in my excessiveness :P
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

Walang ganitong set up sa amin.

Basta yung sa amin ako lahat may hawak ng pera namin.. pero i always update him kung magkano na laman ng bank, ano mga gastos, etc etc..

in short ako ang accountant sa amin. Hindi magastos asawa ko at sobrang simpleng tao, he tells me if may gusto syang bilhin (na sobrang once in a blue moon lang) at kung ano mga need nya..

lahat ng sweldo nya saken napupunta then i just give him money when he needs something.. ganito kami ever since  :)
