I have been married for 11 months...my husband and I have different ways of looking at and working our budget. We are working together now and I have set up a binder to record our purchases and expenses each month. Do you have any suggestions or practices that have worked for you?

    I am a saver and my husband is not, I have a place in the house that I will hide money to save so like when I make a purchase I will write down it cost me $11 instead of $10 and then I will stash the extra dollar away. I've gotten so good at it I can do $20 at a time now without him questioning. Then when there are months we are behind I can pay a small bill or two. And since I handle paying the bills he has no clue that I've saved the money.
