DH's Extra Income

October 16th, 2006 at 10:01 pm

DH codes on the side for extra money. He stopped doing this for awile because it started to eat up all of his free time and he was only getting a max of $50 for hours apon hours of work. He has started again because of our current financial state, but he is being a little smarter about it. He is accepting higher paying jobs and only taking on work that he is certified to do. He knows how to do other alot of other things that he is not certified for, but it takes him twice as long to complete them because he is not as fluent in the code.
When I started the new budget I asked him if he would be willing to put the money from that into our overdrawn bank account as it is paied out to him through PayPal. He agreed, but apon recieving his first completion check he spent the money on books online. He told me the day before they were to arrive in the mail. I was furious! They are coder books and in the long run will help him make more money, but I feel like he was deceiving me by not telling me until he absolutely had to.
Payday for his competed codes is coming up in the next couple of days and he promised that he would put all the money in the bank this time. I don't trust him to do it, and with his car being in the state that it is in I have no money to put towards bringing the bank account back into the positive. I have no way of checking his income in his PayPal account because it is his account. The only way I will know is by my (the bank account is in my name only) balance. That could take up to a week to know and he could easily spend that money in that time.

    You two need to communicate with each other about your money situation.
