Everyday I’m Hustlin’

These are the confessions of a hustlin’ housewife (I’m sorry but does “hustlin’ housewife” sound like the title of a low-budget porn to anyone else? No? Ok, never mind). 

Confession #1: I re-use Ziplock bags

You remember how you kindly packed a few brownies for me after your party last weekend? You BEST believe that I made my husband wash that Ziplock bag so that he could use it to carry his lunch for the next few weeks. So, thanks x2.

Confession #2: I double-dip my tea bags

Kenyan tea is hard to come by around these parts people. So I’m SORRY if when you came by the other day your tea tasted a little weak. I can assure you that I tried to squeeze that tea bag as hard as I could so that it tasted like the first cup I made (even though yours was cup #3 down the line). Next time I’ll serve you first, promise.

Confession #3: I re-gift gift bags

You know those tiny cards attached to the handles of gift bags? Please don’t write in them. People like me intend to take our gift out of the gift bag as soon as possible so we can carefully fold and save the gift bag for re-use sometime in the near future. We already feel pretty crappy about this without you making us have to tear out the little card on the handles. 


As a side note, I think the universe has decided to reward me for my money-saving efforts; in the last 4 months I have received 3 coupons for free Victoria Secret panties. No purchase required! Well, either that or the universe is trying to tell me something else altogether 😕
