Five ways to convince your wife to buy truck accessories

1.  Layout expectations when it comes to purchasing your truck accessories

You can't just tell your significant other that you're going to throw down for some truck accessories.  You need to be explicit on what you want to buy, how much it will cost and how often you'll be buying new accessories for your truck.  You need to be up front about the kinds of accessories you want to buy, how much it will cost and how you will save for it.

2.  Keep your shopping list reasonable

You won't want to come to your significant other with an entire laundry list of accessories you want totaling thousands and thousands of dollars.  Pick your top two or three items you'd like to purchase.  Do some research ahead of time to determine how much it will cost and have a plan in place for how and when you'll achieve the purchases.

3. Buy it unannounced

Although this may be the riskiest of all, sometimes you need to just be a man and pull the trigger.  It is often better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.  Just ensure you don't blow that month's rent or morgage payment in the process and you should be able to weather the storm.

4.  Buy Her Something First

One of the easiest ways to convince your wife to let you buy what you want is to buy her something she wants first.  Whether it is some new clothes or jewelry, this will show that you're unselfish and willing to get her something she wants!  After that you should be good to get those Gatorback Mud Flaps you've been eyeballing.

5.  Drop Hints

Instead of asking for permission to buy somethng for yourslef, drop her some hints that it is something you'd like.  Once the hints have been dropped, take her out to dinner and a movie.  She will love you and more than likely will surprise you with the truck accessory you want.  Another easy to drop a hint is to leave your internet browser open on the truck accessory you want and ensure she sees it.
