I am a stay at home mother, with two kids under 5 years. I left my job when first child was born. Now, my husband has recently started telling me off about any purchases I make. Like anything! I am aware that I sometimes over- shop online, but I never buy anything frivolous! I lately bought a pack of multi-vitamin gummies for myself, and my husband was like Why do you even need this, why do you buy useless things? We did not talk for 2 days. yesterday, I ordered a show piece for bedroom, and he was like, why are you wasting money. I don’t understand what’s wrong with him. He earns very good, his parents are very very well off. Why is he having problems with me, when it never was before?

I hope you not take this wrongly. maybe you are shopping too much because children are grown and you have more time with you. because you were working before, now you are filling free time on online shopping. talk to husband and ask why he is calling your purchases ‘useless’. a clear communication will help both come on common ground. Do clear up before it turns into a bigger disagreement.
Hi Mam, if your husband has not say anything till now, why he saying now? What has happened, so that he is feeling that so much expense you are doing. I will say, please do take an inner look, maybe you are getting bored, so you are shopping more. Talk to him and don’t be angry, listen to him also. You will solve this small problem definitely.
There might be a lot of possibilities so before assuming anything talk to him about it, he might be worried about the future, and also today things might be fine but tomorrow might not so think about it.
Things change dear, now you have a family, maybe he is getting more serious about future, and want to save more. Tell him about your concerns no, maybe you both can decide on a mutual shopping monthly budget, so that this issue will not come up again.
