We had a little discussion over in the BeeTV chatroom the other day about our spending habits and our significant other’s spending habits. Mr. Toucan is definitely a saver, while I on the other hand, am not. If shopping was a sport, I’d be on the varsity squad. I have a hard time saying ‘no’ to good deals, and have a particular weakness toward dresses and shoes.

Since we’ve been engaged, however, I’ve noticed (and Mr. T has noticed!) that my spending ways has been a little more under control. I’m not sure whether me saving more is attributable to saving for the wedding, Mr. Toucan’s influence on me, or me just growing up. My guess is that it is probably some combination of the three.
What are your spending habits like? Are you and your significant other spenders or a savers? Have your spending habits changed because of your wedding or because of your significant other’s influence?
