Is $300 too much money to last a month over the road
Both my husband & I are brand new at this - him a brand new trucker & myself a brand new trucker's wife.
What is the usual amount that most of you wives give your husband while they are on the road? When my husband went back on the road from being home a few days & besides him stocking up on water & snacks, I gave him $300 & he wanted more but I told him with the holidays approaching & me being laid off, that was an impossibility.
And also what didn't help matters, my Mother said to me that you let him spend over $100 on snacks & water at Wal-Mart & you give him $300, that was way too much money.
Also my husband is not the type that would stock up on home cooked meals because he told me he shares the truck with a team driver & his team driver on the truck, it is his truck & he told my husband that there will be no refrigerator on here because his team driver is married also but prefers to eat at truck stops.
So again both my husband & I are new at this & his team driver is the one that told my husband that as long as you have snacks & water on the truck, that $300-$500 a month or 6 weeks till we get home next would be sufficient!
Is that sufficient or is my Mother right by saying that is way too much money?
