Right ?? 

Whilst a new lipstick for the weekend and a t-shirt for the kids when you pop into town may not feel like a big deal, hiding your purchases from your partner is now thought of as a form of infidelity …. financial infidelity .I have had clients tell me their secret spending varies from the occasional coffee , new make up or video games right up to a client who once told me they had bought a Buy to Let flat without telling their partner!

If you identify with any of the 5 traits below you may be a secret spender.

  1. Do you tell your partner something new is in fact something old ? “ what this old thing … I’ve had it for years ? Whilst quietly removing the tags? 
  2. Do you “ lose” receipts 
  3. Do you make sure you always get the credit card statement before your partner ?
  4. Do you have secret bank accounts 
  5. Do you earn more than you tell your partner ?
