Stop? What is this term you speak of? I am not familiar with the term self control either. :)

I only stop when I only have enough money left in the bank for a six pack of beer. If a man can't drink beer and watch his reef tanks, then whats the point in going to work in the first place. Right?

Well the way I do it is pretty easy. I have an account set up at my bank, when I have spare money I deposit it into said account. When I want something or need something I use that account. The best part of the account is that I have it set up to where I can only use so much at a time with the card. If I need more out of it I have to go to the bank and take it out. I did this for the sole purpose of keeping my spending to a minimum. My tank is pretty set and full now so the only things I need are the essencials.

 

Now when I set up my next tank, I will be back to being broke. Everybody knows what that is like ;P

she doesn't whip me or take away my wallet. she has much more powerful ways of influencing my decision making abilities.

Dump the broad and sink all that love and date money into your tanks.

I stop buying frags because my tank is packed.

 

But I have not yet found a way to stop equipment & tank upgrades or re-designs.

I slyly spend every spare penny in my account without the hubby knowing but then when I can't afford to buy food at the store I have little excuse :o

Sorry, tiny, Dubya won't let us share property rights - my money is my own, and 65% of it is discretionary. Teh gheys have learned that relationships are far too volatile to share bank accounts. :)
