Good idea made happIER

September 7, 2008

A few days ago the Happy Housewife had a good idea.  She is sick of wasting food and tired of styrofoam take-home containers.  Her common sense solution is to take tupperware containers to the restraunt…problem solved.  However, there is a much happIER solution!

Who doesn’t have garbage bags?  Exactly!!!  Why risk an awkward moment when you can wear your food home?  Here’s the happIERhousewife’s not-so-common sense solution:

Last week we brought home seven gallons of soup!

Happiness in a box!

Today I will share how my family became happIER with a few mouse clicks.  First, you need to visit and do a search for “Wii Fit”.  Several hundred returns will appear for $150 and higher, but there’s a simple trick to obtaining your very own Wii Fit if you have a tiny bit of patience.  All you need to do is sit by your computer clicking the refresh button every 30 seconds for 72-96 hours.  At some point Amazon will offer the Wii Fit for $89 so this is time well spent.  You’ll be the proud owner of you Wii Fit in a few days and it’s important to realize why you’ll become instantly happier.

First, you will probably have slept the four days it takes for your Wii Fit to arrive and you will finally feel awake after your 72-96 hour “refresh marathon”.  Next, you’ll instantly realize there’s no more need to spend children with your time outside.  Just think how much more time you’ll have to do Mommy and Daddy stuff!  Finally, and this could be most important, you’ll feel confident your children are receiving adequate physical training, which is the one area Noggin can’t provide.  Our children’s average Body Mass Index is already up to 47% (higher is better, right?!?) from our healthy Chinese diet. 

Come back soon for more fake ideas you should never even think of trying or visit for a wonderful site with fantastic advice we’re learning a lot from.

Blind leap of faith = more money = happIER housewife!

September 2, 2008

My husband did not have a very good day at work.  I think the only responsible thing to do is to take a blind leap of faith and sign on with a company we believe in.  We thoroughly researched this quickly expanding corportation and feel there is no limit on what they can achieve…or how much money we can make.

Pay for convenience!

September 1, 2008

We’ve developed a simple way to increase happiness…pay for convenience.  Consider the following example:

The Happy Housewife feeds her family of eight for $600/month, which breaks down to around $150/week.  They eat breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, so each meal averages $7.14 for the family and $0.89 per person.  Quite impressive, but where’s the convenience and how can you be even happIER?

Using the same “math” and “science”, we’ve calculated how to increase your convenience 18,666%!  All you have to do is dine at a buffet every evening.  Sound too good to be true?  I’ll run through the numbers for a family of eight.  Chinese buffets, with only minor health code infractions, are available in most neighborhoods for only $7 per person.  You can literally gorge yourself (and stuff your purse/pockets/diaper bag) for only $56/day, $392/week or $1,568/month. 

Sure, that’s $968 more than the Happy Housewife spends on her total monthly food budget, but with the HappIERHouseWife Nutritional Plan you never do dishes, cook or worry about your little ones getting enough sodium and carbonated drinks.
