I am a cheap-o, a penny pincher. I am not scared to admit that either. I like to know what we have, and what we can to better to save money and live within
I stick to this budget religiously. Although we have stopped doing the envelope method, I am stricter on our budget now more than ever. Opening up a new business takes its toll on the owners for the first little bit. So right now we don’t have a budget other than DO NOT SPEND A SINGLE PENNY OR I WILL KILL YOU. The husband is still alive, so its working out quite well.
I took this “Hitler” thing to a whole new level. I made bran- muffins the other day and knowing William all 24 of these would have been gone in the first 2 days with the way he eats them. So when he came home and started to dig in I told him he had to limit his rations to 2 per day. He laughed, until he saw I was serious.
I am constantly asking/ telling William to do this and do that. I know that I need to cool it a little but seriously, if I ask him nicely it doesn't get done. So what choice do I have other than asking 14,000 times a day? Right? No? OK, I know and agree I need to be nicer to this cute husband of mine!
So whenever I turn into the demanding, selfish, crazy lady that I am sometimes, William will put up his pointer finger in the shape of a mustache over his top lip and just look at me.
The other day he said he is going to make a mustache and attach it to a stick like you see in those photo booths, and hold it up every time I turn into Hitler.
Lets hope I am not a reincarnation.
