How would you translate the following conversation:

(At the shop)

A: Can I have the receipt please?
B: Sure.
A: You know, I have to „rozliczyć się z żoną z pieniędzy, które wydałem”.

Here is what I got myself:

I have to account for the money I've spent with my wife.
I have to tell my wife how much I've spent.
I have to settle accounts with my wife for the money I spent in the shop. (this version is from an online translator)

What precise expression / word would you use? How to sound colloquial?

Thank you.

    Of the options you've given, the only one that works is "I have to tell my wife how much I've spent." Although, I think the better/more natural to say it, as well as a more accurate translation of the Polish, would be, "I have to account for the money I spend to my wife."
