say what you mean and mean what you say. if it's about the money i'm spending, tell me that. don't bust my a$$ over the "wrong" trash bags (true story).
I BET it was something like my paper towels and paper plates story/fights.
DH uses paper towels and paper plates - all the time. He grew up with a family that used many. They still do. DH still does.
When I met DH I NEVER used paper towels OR paper plates. I grew up with a family of EIGHT kids and not very well off, so those were luxury items in my mind.
DH and I when we first got married had HUGE issues when he'd come home with paper plates, and paper towels and USE them like they were nothing! Well, I was just out of my mind, because EVERY single paper plate that got used and thrown away all I could hear was "cha-ching!
". MONEY WASTED!
It was awful! My dh thought I was nuts. But my parents had NO money for milk let ALONE paper towels and paper plates!
Oh, we have BUNCHES of me being the penny pincher and him being the spend thrift issues! Even when he'd say: "Well I make XYZ amount of money!". ALL I'd think is "WOW, look how much money I could be packing away in a savings account..."
I'd never used paper towels, paper plates, ZIP lock bags, the list goes on and on.
So you can IMAGINE how I felt when he bought me a ROLEX on our HONEYMOON. I had to practically swallow my tongue not to say: "BUT DH! If we invested that money, we could put new shingles on the house in ten years...."
