Let’s Hear it For Frugal Husbands! …and frugal wives. Oh, let’s not forget frugal domestic partners. And frugal fiances and fiancees. And frugal boyfriends and frugal girlfriends. While we’re at it, frugal children, frugal relatives, frugal babysitters and frugal roommates. Hope we covered everyone; I don’t want to leave anybody out!
The point is, having the support people in our lives understand and get on board with our frugal movement is key. It makes everything easier to have the same thinking about spending less and saving more with your spouse (or other support person). Frugal supporters work for me, and so here is my shout-out to my Frugal Husband.
My Husband: The Frugal Heckler
Today I’d like to thank my husband, who is my dedicated partner in our frugal lifestyle. I jokingly call him the Frugal Heckler sometimes because he likes to make fun of the extent of my frugality. He calls me out on some of my goofiest ideas and most far-fetched frugal flops when necessary! However, he spots great deals, keeps his eyes open for newsworthy information for the Homemaker Barbi readers, and shares my passion wholeheartedly for living a frugal life. I’ve told you all before that he jokes about me reusing milk jugs for so many things, calling our house The House That Milk Jugs Built. He’s quite a comedian and when I read about the message Amy’s husband sent her, I had to laugh since it reminded me of my own husband! Do you have Frugal Husbands or Frugal Hecklers? We’d love to hear your stories!
While sometimes my husband is a Frugal Heckler, mostly he’s the best Frugal Husband a frugal Homemaker Barbi could ask for!
To my wonderful Frugal Husband, my lover, my best friend, my partner in everything: I love you! I hope I tell you enough just how much I appreciate everything you do and all of your support for our frugal living. Thank you for being my Frugal Heckler and keeping me on my toes, but mostly thank you for your support in building our life into what we want it to become.
Love, your frugal Homemaker Barbi”
