How do I reconcile my reluctant husband to our budget?
Any ideas on how to make our new, very strict budget seem less like a prison sentence to my husband?
Intellectually, he understands that we MUST budget, since our student loans have gone into repayment. Emotionally, he feels like he's having to disproportionately sacrifice to make this work.
And yes, most of the areas that need to be cut are HIS discretionary spending. I feel kinda like the wicked witch of the west, but I'm not asking him to do anything that I haven't ALREADY been doing for years.
I wish I had time to ease him into it, but he's avoided discussing it with me for so long that it MUST BE DONE NOW. And he's really very upset about it.
