I am a stay at home mom. I have no income. When I go shopping I always have to use my husbands money. How do you moms get birthday / Christmas gifts for your husbands without feeling like your not really buying it for them and they are just buying it for themselves? The one thing I hate about being a stay at home mom is not having my own money to spend on my husband. Every time Christmas or his birthday comes around I know what I want to get him but it just doesn't feel like it's coming from me. And it's kind of hard to keep it from him since we have the same bank account and it tells you how much and where or what store your money is going to. How do you deal with this? How can I make myself feel more independent with his income?
