What do you call it?

Maybe you don't have it.  Maybe you are incredibly organised and don't need the category.  Maybe you are happy-go-lucky and there's an awful lot of it in your budget.

I call it WIGIG.  When it's gone it's gone.  It's the money which I set side for miscellaneous purchases.  This month I've bought key chains, the Highway Code, a few pamper-type toiletries, a Sudoku book, a screwdriver among other things.

For some its WAM - walking about money.  For others its Miscellaneous.  

But what do you call it?  I'm curious.

  1. I call it Mad Money. No idea why that term but it's the one I've used for many many years.

  3. spending money or an allowance. We get an allowance every month to spend on what we want that isn't household related. It is just our own to save up or spend -- no questions asked.

  4. We call it personal money - I used to refer to it as allowance but my husband objected to that term :)

    1. We might call it pocket money here too, but that would be more commonly used for children's money (but yes, adults might say pocket money too).
