Are you with someone thats cheap with there money or are they generous with it? Do they buy you things often and take you out footing the bill or do they stay in because its cheaper,or make you pay or pay half when you do go out? If so does it annoy you or have you learned to accept that thats how they are?

Hubby is generous. Almost too much. Its to the point where sometimes I worry about why he buys everything for everyone.

When we have the money, we spend it and have fun and enjoy ourselves, but when money is tight we are content sitting at home and watching some tv or movies and on our computers. When we didn't live together, it was generally the same for dates, and we were fine with spending hours just cuddling and watching tv. We did also do nice things, too, and aren't strangers to nice restaurants, or McDonalds depending on our budget

He's very far away right now, but when we're together, he's no issue buying me things or taking me out to eat. That said, I know he's having financial issues right now so I try to encourage him to let me foot the bill when we're together.

She's not a cheapskate, which is problematic since she doesn't have much disposable income. It balances out, since I have more and spend more though.

Definitely not. He wants to buy me things all the time. I always have to say no. I end up feeling bad letting him spend so much.

I'm not with one either. He isn't very frugal with money. I wish he was.

I was married to a cheap skate: the type that even refuses to tip servers - and I ended up paying for most things anyway because I was employed more often than he was.

C is more generous, but understands what a budget is. It also helps that he has a decently-paying job.

He wasn't a cheap skate, til I took the finances away from him and now we both are! He's never been great with budgeting and more than willing to spend more than he should. While it's nice to be treated, I don't like the stress of running low at the end of the month or worrying over money...so now we're on a pretty tight budget, but make room for extras when we can.

I am strong believer in the little known adage for living: Extreme thrift is a thinly veiled form of greed.

My husband is usually generous, but sometimes he tries to "save money" on things that end up costing us more. For instance, when we had to remodel our downstairs bathroom. I picked out a $225.00 toilet. He balked at paying that much for a toilet and bought a.... $40.00 toilet. It started clogging almost immediately, and ended up costing us not only Four Hundred Dollars for an emergency plumber visit, but we then had to shell out the money for the decently priced toilet ON TOP OF the cheap one, which had to be thrown away.

He does the same thing with stuff like aluminum foil. Buys the cheap ass thin as onion paper stuff, that then has to be tripled or quadrupled over just to work. We could have bought the heavy duty aluminum foil for less per use.

(My Man is at the VERY TOP of my Shit List today, if anyone is interested....)

I hate cheapness. I will pay for quality, as it lasts longer and causes you to not have to rebuy things, as quality lasts longer. My mother criticized me because I asked for good quality pots and pans for my wedding. (Not really expensive, Revere Ware, good quality mid priced stuff.) However, unlike her cheap cookware, I never burn anything because my pots and pans withstand and distribute heat, and I have not had to replace them in... (mumbles to herself) the many years we've been living together.

I could give myriad examples, but for me, quality and being generous to people who matter to you (and that includes the wait staff who brings you your food in a restaurant, the guy who delivers my prescriptions when I'm sick and even the girl who brings me my Jimmy John sandwich) are worthy of my hard earned money.

You can't take it with you.

She's more generous than me, I think, but we're both on the frugal end (and I prefer it that way).
