I read through your other responses before responding myself

Without really knowing your family dynamics I wonder what is his underlying reason for wanting what he wants when he wants it?Is there something in his background that is causing this reaction? I’m sorry but I can’t remember if you work — and if not, does that cause tension? Are there budgetary “don’t go there” items for both you and your spouse? For example, for me it’s the daycare bill and mortgage; for my DH it’s car/home insurance; we split the the other four wall types of bills like phone/internet, trash/water, electricity/gas, etc.
Beyond that we just let it go and talk about what it is we are going to purchase or need (such as groceries).
I’m probably not helping but thought I’d toss out my thoughts in the hopes that other lurkers might also feel inspired to chime in.
