I understand your concern about an allowance or "blow" fund. But for people that already have a spending problem....you can't expect them to NOT spend...that is why there is a "blow" fund. It is better to put aside CASH to spend rather than rack up more Credit Card Debt.
You can't honestly expect someone to stay home EVERY weekend and NEVER eat out...that is why we have that cushion for us :)
