Wala din ganito sa amin.

I'm a stay-at-home mom and I have a freehand on finances-as long as everything gets paid for (bills-wise) walang kwentahan.

It is our choices that show what we truly are,far more than our abilities

I have no allowance, I have too much pride LOL.But I want to have one now kasi nainggit ako sa mga sisses na meron, when I was in between jobs hinde ako huminge sakanya for my personal things. Wala ako luho, as in. Kaya ko pala maging minimalist pag dating dun. anyway, I would like to know how those women get their men to give them gifts and stuff..

nakaka inggit naman most sissies dito hehe.. i don't get any allowance at all.. i work at home and i earn more than him. recently lang nung bumukod kami na naghati kami sa mga bills.. nung sa bahay ng parent ko pa kami nakatira.. hindi man lang nag kukusa na mag share sa pang grocery namin 2 at sa electric bill dahil kaming 2 malakas mag consume ng electricity dahil lage kami naka aircon. Anyway aside sa paghati namin sa bills, i make sure na he buys milk and diaper for my son every payday which I do also minsan lang lugi ako dahil maliit lang na gatas binibili niya

sahm ako. used to have S$500 allowance every month from hubby during early part of our marriage. kaya lang, since hindi naman ako maluho, most of it (if not all) just went straight to the bank.
after some time natigil din..siguro napansin nya i don't buy stuff for myself naman heheh...

he usually gives me gifts (and since hilig nya gadgets, yun ang binibigay nya sa akin, latest handphones and tablets)..if i want new shoes or bags (na minsan din lang naman mangyari..lol!), pwede ko naman gawin. i always have cash at hand. or i can always use yung cc na share kami sa credit limit but of course di ko naman ginagamit.

if i want my hair, nails,etc done, he waits for me or pasyal sya with our kids while waiting, then i'd call him back so he can pay for it. actually pwede ko naman gawin yun but i prefer that he do it...wala lang..parang may sugar daddy lang ang peg..lol

also, i dont want to get his atm. i let him keep it. I let him pay all the bills and take care of our finances. bahala sya dun. what's more important is may savings kami at panggastos  for food, schools fees,etc., masaya kami and the kids..ayun ganun...
Yes, it's true, (yes it's true) I'm so happy to be stuck with you
'Cause I can see, (I can see) that you're happy to be stuck with me

No allowance..yung atm ni hubby sa kanyang salary nasakin,nagwiwidraw kami para sa mga payments and needs sa house..at binibigyan ko rin sya ng 2 weeks allowance nya.but we have a joint account atm.and credit card..in case of biglaang need ng money, and from the salary nakakaipon ako ng passbook savings account ko :-D

we earn a lot but he just gives me 100 a day for lunch or merienda hahahaha (niloloko ko nga sabi ko parang baon ko lang nung grade 4 ako)

haaaay.. minsan eto kinalulungkot ko mga sisses, pls enlighten me..

my partner and i have the same line of work and earns the same.. before i got pregnant, my money is mine, his is his, we just share sa household bills.. but since i learned im pregnant August last year, we had a mutual decision to just combine our funds for our kids future and ours too.. we began to create plans for our "family".. eto na ang simula ng hindi ko paghawak ng pera.. from our mutal fund, he handles the budget (before he let me do this but palpak lol), he pays for my condo investment, he just gives me food money everyday during work, he is very matipid lalo na sa sarili nya but when he likes something like a tv for our house worth 100k he buys cash asap haaay.. he is very homebody, and we give expensive gifts to other people coz its an "investment", for sure may balik yun..

but i feel deprived coz minsan pahirapan humingi ng budget like pangshopping ng baby namin, he keeps on postponing, i dont know if its my hormones but im really excited to shop.. bags yes he buys me once in a while (but im thinking may equal share din naman ako with everything, i work hard for everything).. i want to invest in new jewelry na hindi naman mahal but he says no.. i dont have savings on my own, sya din naman (i keep our joint account).. if i need to buy something, i need to explain (kinda hard kasi sobrang tipid nya sa sarili nya)

ang ineexplain nya sa akin we need to save for our investment, our own home, own money for the kids, we are just starting etc. but i know how much we are earning, personally i think i am not asking too much :(

sometimes this makes me feel depressed, or im just being immature??!  :(

^ Sis I think it is good that your hubby  knows how to budget and think long term.  Just make sure lahat ng money decisions ninyo dapat decision ninyong 2 kasi combined lahat.  Make sure din you know where all the funds are going din kasi andun din kinikita mo.

But I think it would be good to have your own and his own din.  Some sisses may be able to correct me. Kasi kung meron din kayong joint savings, at meron kayong kanya kanya, syempre he can buy stuff for you and you can do as well without being too calculatiave about it.

Ok naman yung P100/day sis ah!  You just don't need to spend for it all the time. Magbaon ka nalang, and that way, kung nakaipon ka, you can start your "own" savings. Tapos kung may mga bonus and all, punuan mo lagi yung sarili mong savings. Pero syempre secret (?)  Nasa usapan na ninyo iyan siguro. 

Kasi when I was married once before, I also have my own secret savings. Para lang mas makatulog ako ng mahimbing.

^^  sis scents01, If you've failed to effectively manage the household expenses before, it's but reasonable for your husband to do so. Kudos to a man na marunong mag-budget! :D

However, if you feel deprived already, I believe you should air out this concern to your husband. This can breed resentment kasi. After all, we work to live, not the other way around.

I also agree with Girltalker2, secure your own savings account. :)

Sis scents01, ganyan din ako nung early part ng marriage namin. Si hubby ang nagmamanage ng finances namin so ako ang nagiintrega ng sweldo at that time since we are saving for our first born. Allowance lang din nakukuha ko nun from my sweldo. So pag me gusto ako bilhin, nganga. Hanggang sa di ko na napigilan magsabi sa kanya na nahihirapan akong di makabili ng gusto ko. Nagsettle kami ng kanya kayang sweldo as long as me nakapool na joint money for everything na family and household at savings related. I think that might help you with your concern right now.

Very good mag manage ng finances ang asawa ko. Saludo ako sa kanya lalo pa nung nag SAHM na lang ako. Never ko na inattempt hingin ang budgeting task. Wala akong sakit sa ulo. Bahala sya maghanap ng pambudget. Kahit kakarampot lang ang allowance ko from him (nagcompute ako ng per diem allowance, kumurot sa puso ko ang nakita ko sa calculator), bigay-hilig naman sya hanggang kaya. And I always have my safety net na accounts before I left work pag di ko maatim humingi ng pambili ng something sa kanya.

I don't have allowance but I can get money anytime from our common fund if wala na akong money.  "Common Fund" siya but he is the only one putting in money haha  We had an earlier agreement kasi that my money is my money and his money is my money as well, just to make me feel better.  We have a business together, and I have another business so I'm doing pretty well, I guess gusto ko lang ng feeling na may fund ako, hindi discretionary fund kasi he knows, basta may big chunk of savings ako if anything goes wrong.

Pero with the way things are going, I think forever na rin naman talaga kami :)

Susko po. Wala namang binibigay si hubby na talagang allowance ko na hetong P X,XXX para sa iyo yan. Meron akong allowance pero di galing sa kanya. Kinita at pinaghirapan ko din, yung combined income namin di pwedeng basta2 galawin. Pati nga sinasahod ko kinekwestyon din kung ano pinag gagawa ko, as if naman ang laki ng sahod ko. With our baby's need wala kameng probema kasi shoulder na ni father in law. Yung bigay nya na pera na galing sa pinaghirapan nya talaga like yang allowance wala ako nun, pero kapag nagrequest ako ng hair treatment, libre ako sa labas etc. jan siguro, pero may sumbat yun bandang dulo dahil sasabihin nya di na nga sya nakakabili ng personal na gamit nya etc. kaya sabi ko sa kanya mag kanya kanya na kame, wala ng combined income para wala ng sumbatan. Tama kaya yun mga sis?

hubby's salary is about 8x more that what I earn (perks of me working for the family  :-[ ) so he gives me an allowance monthly based on a percentage of his salary. he also gets the same and we call this "personal spending". This is the money we spend what we want to buy - new clothes, gadgets, parlor, spa, etc. This is apart from our daily spending that I manage and our savings account for big purchases like a car or a house.

He has also allotted a generous amount every year for my combined Valentine's, Birthday, Anniversary and Christmas gift. I requested him to make this amount known to us so I can pick what I want. He likes to give me things that I don't particularly want like cellphones and laptops so para everybody happy, I get to choose my gift :)

Talk about your concerns with your husband nalang, baka maging source pa yan ng fight niyo.  And your father in law is helping out diba?  That's his side of the family helping you out, you should take that into consideration.

That's good!  My husband doesn't give me a fix allowance pero I know if he plans to give me something.  I don't get his salary and dividends from his other business eh :)

None. I earn more kasi sa kanya. Sometimes ako pa nagbibigay ng allowance nya pag short sya, which i don't mind  ;D. He still gives money to his parents pero not all the time.

Pero hati kami sa gastos sa bahay. He pays for the electricity, water, lpg, internet, kasambahay, gas ng car. Ako i pay for the food and needs ni baby. if we would eat out, i will pay using my card pero reimburse nya.  ::)

Sobrang mapride ako when it comes to money. So no, I dont have allowance. Tama bang sabihin na naaapakan pagka babae ko? Is there such a thing.  :D

Ayaw na ayaw ko na babayaran niya ano man needs ko. Minsan sa dami ng binabayaran kong bills and nagbibigay pa ako sa mom ko, talagang tipid na tipid ako. Nagagalit siya sakin coz hindi ko daw hinahayaan na tumulong siya sakin. Ayoko nga. Ayoko kasi may maisumbat sakin, and iba yung pride na nararamdaman ko kapag nabibilan ko sarili ko ng ako lang.

ako i do not have any allowance from my husband.  i do earn money from my online shop.  then yung mga earnings ko, napupunta sa gastusin naming mag asawa.  and kung may natitira man, napupunta sa joint account namin.  may sarili akong bank account.  i know, i need to save some for myself ren.

hindi ako puede mawalan ng pera.  kasi i don't think bibigyan ako ng allowance ng asawa ko.

hubby does not give me an allowance. sa family business niya kami nagwowork and i receive a monthly salary from them naman. but kay hubby ko rin binibigay yung salary ko. dinedeposit niya sa joint account namin. he gave me a supplementary credit card para sa mga gusto ko bilhin then he pays for everything. very rare lang din naman ako mag shopping. and just like our other sissies, bumabawi din siya sa gifts during special occasions. if i need cash naman, i can always ask him for my salary.

500 pesos a month!  :)
but I am provided with more than what I need. Yung 500 para lang sa mga walang kwentang bagay or para may matawag ako na pera ko. Sometimes nag papacute nalang ako if I want to buy something. All he wants is that I ask for permission. I have access to his bank account and I still have savings from when I was still working.

Mga sis patulong naman ako!!!

20k every month ang allowance ko. Wala akong gastos sa bahay at sa baby namin kasi sya lahat gumagastos nun. Pero wala akong naiipon!!!! Nakakainis!!! Help!!! Medyo malakas ako mag shopping eh. Every 2 weeks nakkatanggap ako 10k. As in ni singkong dulong wala ako ginagastos sa bahay talaga... Pero [textspeak!] ako naiipon kasi eh, naaasar na ako. 😩

@Parissydney  ano po ang lifestyle niyo sa life?  I mean, do you have kids?  Do you have work (or a business)?  Do you still have parents (hindi ba sila hirap sa buhay?) Do you have maids?

Baka kasi wala ka masyadong ginagawa, tinatamad ka, kaya malakas ka gumastos.  Siyempre you want to look at your prettiest.  Ako kasi ganun, need ko magmukhang sexy and pretty always (and the reason is not really a happy one).  I actually "literally" dumped all my clothes and changed my wardrobe.  Ang gastos grabe!  Pero now that I have good clothes na, I try to stop myself from buying new clothes. 

Pero ang nakatulong talaga sa akin is yung 3 times akong pumupunta sa school dahil sa panganay ko, then ako pa ang nagtututor sa kanya.  In between those is yung online shop ko.  So what about shopping?  No time na for that.  Hindi ko na ren naiisip na pumunta sa mall.
