"Actually, it should be rein.  Reign only applies if he wants to lord it over her. ;-)"

"For what its worth, you meant "reign" her in.  I keep reading "reel her in", and thinking you're trying to snag a girl ... not control her spending.  JB"

"If you get points on the cards, it isn't always a bad thing to use the cards. Just make sure you pay them off as soon as you use them. The points add up to some great things.  In the last few years it has taken care of a couple car rentals…"

"I was able to talk her out of credit cards and we are only using cash. It's just a matter of explaining that not everything needs to be done at once and we can do small projects one at a time. We've talked a bit more about it and I've…"

"Paint it before you move in.   Let her do several things to "mark" it as her house. Trust me, this is very important to her. The paint is going to be the easiest thing. After that, you can also do stuff like hardware on the cabinets…"

"Paint is cheap. I got my outdoor furniture at yard sales.  One cargo-furniture set that I had reupholstered. But if money is very very tight, things can be put off."

"We did what you are discussing. To some degree we over spent.  My suggestion is to get the basics then go room by room project by project.  Get a book draft out the rooms. Then fill the pages with color options and ideas and then calculate…"

"As I noted, this is a regional difference.  However, as someone who moved from the NW to the east coast, there are reasons umbrellas are used out here.  1.  While it doesn't rain as much, such rain as there is is often…"

"Nothing to do with politics. Carter was weasley, let others make his decisions, messed up the Iranian hostage big time, and was controlled by his wife and mother. Clinton was/is a whore who screws around on his wife unapologetically.  "
