Home Budget Speech: What does your partner want you to stop spending money on?

We've all got our addictions and not everyone understands our 'need' for certain things, especially our other halves.


When you're a saver and have a spender for a partner, things can get a bit tense to say the least. 

Women especially get frustrated when their spouse isn't “on the same page” with them in general. Now throw in a partner who spends household money on model car collections or one that buys every latest gadget as soon as it comes out.

Not to pick on men, but we know women are the ones that get the most frustrated with men when they think they're wasteful. 

While we can't help you with tips on how to get "on the same" page as your partner, we can have a bit of fun with it.

2. Collecting model cars

Most women don't really get this one, why do men collect these things?
