    I love when my husband goes to the fabric store with me. He helps me match fabrics, he gets the number and waits by the cutting table while I am still shopping, and best of all, he's always asking me if I need anything else...I always end up buying more than was on my list.

    I don't bother bringing my DH. I know he doesn't really enjoy the experience. Mainly based on the fact that when there is a big sale at Joann's the people in my area get a bit rude. No excuse me's, or anything; lots of getting pushed out of the way etc. (one of the many reasons I keep trying out smaller LQS to find one that works)
    So I figure I'm going to have more fun without him complaining anyway. So he tells me to have fun, I have my money limit, and I go have a blast!

    I guess I am old fashioned and don't understand this "new age" marriage thing about hiding purchases and punishing one's spouse for something.
    I don't understand it, either. If I want to buy something, I buy it. Period. I have enough sense, to know whether or not we can afford it. As for telling DH what he "has" to do, forget it. We're both adults and expect to be treated as such, by each other.

    That said, I'm assuming the "punishment" and "hiding" comments are made in jest!

    This takes me back to the old days when the "bought them for the articles" excuse was given by geezers who bought PlayBoy magazines.
