What’s the difference between being tight and being careful with your money? Do other people think you are tight with your money?
I think the intention behind it would show right from careful. I try and be careful. So everything is covered and I don’t get into trouble with buying I needed things. Others I know don’t let their spouses have much money but then spend loads of themselves. I’d say they are tight towards others.
It’s a really good question. I think that ultimately you have to decide who and what your priorities are and stick to them - and if others disagree then so be it, it doesn’t make your way of doing things wrong.
