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.

Why settle for happy?

August 30, 2008

Things are about to get serious!

Our good friends at have done some good work…so we’re out to do better.  Why would you want to settle for happy when you could be happier?  This (fake) site isn’t going to stop at “happy”…we’re going all the way! 

We don’t want to take anything away from Thehappyhousewife.  Her site is amazing.  Please check it out if you want (serious) advice about managing your money, great home schooling tips and how to feed a family of eight for under $600/month.  We’re going to take a completely different and less realistic approach. 

Everyone knows money buys happiness.  So, we need to either cut costs or bring in more ka-ching.  Instead of taking a responsible approach let’s explore an area Thehappyhousewife has completely ignored: child labor.

For only two easy payments of $19.95 you can be first in line for thehappIERhousewife’s Professional Car Detailing service.  It’s service with a smile and a strong emphasis on safety!
