We’ve made a resolution to spend less money. When I explained to Husby what that would mean, he immediately launched into negotiation.
Husby, starting off strong: That means no nail salon, hair coloring or spa expenditures.
H.I.T., moving in for the kill: No problem. I stopped doing those things months ago to save money. Ha ha. That means no taxi’s to work – you can walk the 5 blocks – no expensive bottles of wine at dinner and no weekend jaunts.
Husby, beginning to waiver: How about, taxis are allowed if it’s freezing, and so are nice bottles of wine, as long as the occasion is warranted. Two trips to Miami?
H.I.T., sensing victory: Fine. One trip to Miami. Manis and pedis once a month. I’ll skimp on dinners to save money.
Happy New Year.
