If he doesn't have a lot of money in the first place to spend, this is normal and logical thinking. And my views personally,
- splitting the bills - should be this way, especially early in the relationship
- Movies - home is more comfortable and private, and cheaper is just a bonus. The movies are extremely expensive these days when you add buying popcorn etc. Like, it cost you more than a meal out even!
- Clothes, not only do I not care about clothes at all, I HATE buying them for myself so I can totally relate to this. It just feels like I could spend my money on so many other more important things than clothes and they aren't cheap either. I hate when I have to buy clothes!
But, I was also raised in a poor household and have never had a lot of money, so I'm always watching what I spend. Even now at this point in my life I'm making more money than I ever have, but I still watch what I spend. I know what it's like not having money and I don't ever want to be there again, or worse, be in debt!!

He spent his money on junk food and other crap that he didn't need.
