Quoting 'Lil Boo's mommy:" id tell her flat out you have priorities that dont include makeup cellphones and computers. those are ... [snip!] ... her wants youre not getting your needs taken care of right now. she sounds like she needs a lesson on prioritizing her money."
I wouldn't even know what to say to SO. after he told me about the makeup, I told him you need to stop saying yes!!!! and he didn't say anything. I understand wanting to help you parents and treat them for all the times they've helped and treated you, but there is a limit. My mother refuses to let me spend my own money, because I'm not working and she knows my family comes first. for Christmas she actually got made I got her a present because I'm not working and that $$ should go to LO.
that's the idea of saving I'm use to, so seeing SO just shuffle out money time after time to his mom for tanning, shopping, etc, it frustrates me.
and on top of it, SO has a hard time saving money on his own, so he's actually letting me take over the bills and put a limit on his spending. and I now know where he gets that from!!!! lol
