This meeting is called to order

Do you have family meetings?  What about you and your spouse (significant other)? Do you have meetings with each other?

At our house, we do.  We do both.  BigB and I will meet to discuss things that pertain to things that are in their preliminary stages,  household finances, budgeting plans, etc.  When we have family meetings we discuss things that are more family oriented: what will we do with the money we get from returning our recyclable bottles - vacation savings account or where?  Things like how people have been doing on their chores, what needs to be changed, what is working with our schedules, what isn't working, what needs tweeking.

So?  Do you meet or not?  What do you discuss?  How often do you meet?

Do you run your house like a business or are you a fly-by-the-seat-of-your pants kinda house.

Honestly, I fluctuate between the two.  Sometimes I get too lazy to put in the extra effort and I can tell - we seem to fall apart somewhat.   


  1. Well it is just Adam and me right now, so nothing formal but I hope to have this once we actually have a family. We do our finances together & discuss every purchase ahead of time...which I think is a good habit. We both get an 'allowance' each week. Great discussion topic!

  2. I fly by the seat of my pants, and it is TOTALLY not working for me.
