    He says it controls her impulse buying, if she seems something she wants, she has to go allllll the way to the bank, line up, get money out etc etc... This is too much effort so she doesn't end up buying it unless she REALLY wants it! Although she has a credit card in her wallet so if she really wants something she could use that!
    Hmm maybe I should suggest that to my MIL so she will stop spending FILs money lol!!!

    I went to the bank today and arrived just before it opened. There were several elderly people waiting, with bank books in hand.

    My mil is one of those who seems to think nothing has an expiry. She will pull out medicine from 1999 and expect you to use it. If something is dried it never goes off, so 10 year old tea bags are fine to drink. If it has vinager in it it is forever preserved, so sauces 1 year out of date are perfectly fine to eat etc. She also buys cooked roast chook and freezes it.
    She also loves buying things 'reduced'but then complains about the quality, example 'oh I bought these heavily discounted strawberries but most of them are bruised or mouldy *grumble*' or 'oh this cake from the clearance rack is stale, outragoues' etc.

    When my MIL does the washing, any random items of clothing that have been hung up inside out for no apparent reason, then get folded when dry from the clothesline inside out as well.

    Um... I fold my stuff inside out too (if that's how it was when it came out of the wash)... Im in no hurry to turn it right way out, I'll do that when I wear it or iron it (rarely)

    DF eats everything on his plate separately. For instanace if he had steak and vegetables he would eat greens first, then carrots pumpkin etc, meat then potatoes are always last. Very weird! He prefers his food not to be touching as well but I don't abide by that, he gets it how I serve it!
