My Husband Lies To Me

I have been married for 1 year. My husband was married previously and it ended in a bitter divorce after a long cold relationship. We are getting along wonderfully but he has a tendency to lie to me about insignificant things like how much he spent at the store (it's never an extravagent amount...and I balance the checkbook so he knows I will see how much he spent anyway!). His first wife was very controlling and it seems to me from our discussions that he just does it to keep me from knowing everything. I trust him when it comes to matters of importance but the lying is getting annoying. Is there some way I can make him feel more comfortable? I have the feeling that it will get better with time but can't help but worry it will get worse!
