While I get budgets and disposable income, if a major appliance needs to be replaced and my husband did dumb things with money while drunk, I'd pretend like there was no disposable income until things got fixed. When I first got married, my husband would have been good for what yours did even sober. So we made an agreement to lock down all unnecessary spending if something major came up, even if that something major had to go on credit. It kept us from the money spiral that situations like yours caused. Took us a few times to learn to do that though.
Totally agree with 118. Budgets are flexible, they change depending on your needs, and at the moment your need is 'money for fridge freezer' not 'money for booze for idiot husband'. Very surprised how many people have thumbed up 20. Even if your husband hasn't done this kind of thing before, you kinda deserve it for being irresponsible and 'budgeting' money for luxuries when you currently don't have enough food or anywhere to store it.
I'm OP. My husband couldn't hold his liquor over a few beers if his cock and balls depended on it. It's been a topic of arguments for a while already and this is the final straw. But it's kind of a funny situation if you think about it, that's why I posted it. To any stupid people that are going to ask how can he afford to go out drinking, read my other comment. And I KNOW someone's going to ask how could I afford a computer or a phone to post this, and my answer is: I don't buy a new computer or phone every day, shit head. I could sell my computer, but you try going without easy internet access in this day and age. We'll survive.
