      My husband and I have had some pretty “knock down drag out” money

      issues. I recently change things. He get “X” amount of dollars per

      week and puts it in his own personal acct. I do the same in another

      account. This money has to last all week to buy gas, snacks, etc.

      This allows us to avoid touching the main account. The temptation is

      even gone if we have our own account. We pay all the bills from the

      main account and still have enough money left to do some things that

      we want to do from our personal accounts. Granted it may only be a

      few dollars a week, but it adds up after a while. I have even saved up

      some in my account to buy some things I’ve been wanting. Since we

      have been doing this, we have seen a big improvement in managing the

      finances and we only have our own self to blame if we don’t have

      enough money to last from week to week in our personal accounts. The

      bills are getting paid and we are talking peacefully.
