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.

Menu Planning?!??

August 31, 2008

We don’t know the first thing about menu planning.  It’s not like we’re going to open a restaurant or anything.  They probably have professionals and chefs to do that.  What we can do is Menu Picking.  That we are good at.  This week we’ll choose Outback Steakhouse.  Mmmm.  Sounds yummy.
