good to read I'm not the only one "hiding" things from my wife! a couple of tips on how to hide the "hobby expenses"....

1) Volunteer to go and buy the groceries... then use the "extra cash" back option on the debt card transaction when you checkout!

2) buy your flight buddies lunch in exchange for parts

3) sell stuff on RCGROUPS.COM and hold the proceeds in your paypal account... pay for new stuff using the paypal account

4) sell plasma once a month... the $25 covers things like CA hinges, glue, etc.... it adds up!

5) Bum money from your siblings.... they totally understand how mean your wife really is!

Being an electrician, I get paid on some of the side jobs "cash aka the money she doesnt know about", That all goes into the rc fund. Off of one job I am getting some 9000mah 28c smc lipos for my e-revo and getting the slick with all the goodies!!! This is killing me b/c both are on backorder The waiting ame begins! ahhh hurry up already

I just have a seperate checking account that my wife knows about but doesn't know what I have in it! She is fine with it as long as I don't take money out of the main account.

My Wife handles all the funds but once in a great while I say "BOHICA" and she prepares the account for the pending withdrawal.

I am the bread winner and don't question her on things so every so often when I get stupid she don't mind.

What I used to spend on smoking cigarettes is now my RC budget. See, a pack a day habit can be a good thing!
