We're hoping to start our family later this year, and I'm looking forward to being a SAHM when the time comes. DH & I are both on board with SAHM - he wanted this before we met, and while I love my job I have always wanted this as well. We've worked for the past few years to minimize debt and prepare for a single income.
My Q: How do you get "your" money... My grandmother always called it Pin Money. While we currently pool our incomes and pay pretty much everything jointly, we each have our own bank accounts for extras - presents for each other, rainy day shopping, whatever we want. (I should add that this isn't a large amount of money, we keep about 5% of our paychecks in these accounts)
Does DH give you a 'salary' for the job you do at home? Do you just take money out of the joint account when you need it?
Just something I've been pondering. Thanks for any input!
