My husband, Flash, sometimes teases me about my frugal measures, and always lets me know when my thriftiness has gone overboard! (That’s not very often – money saved is money saved, right?)
I’d love him even if he weren’t frugal, you know, but yesterday I found reason number 1,000,001 that I love my husband so much.
Even though sometimes I call him a frugal heckler, he’s secretly almost as frugal as I am. Of course, he would deny that to anyone if confronted, just like a child sneaking cookies between meals.
But I know he’s frugal. How do I know? I have proof. Incontrovertible proof…
Last night, Michael was sitting on the couch and spotted the All You magazine lying on my desk (which we all know is packed with coupons). He grabbed it and said, I think I’ll just look through this for a few minutes…”
I wondered what he was up to, but later that night I found out. When getting in the shower, he told me he was almost out of bodywash. “No problem”, I said, and brought him a full bottle of Axe shower gel out of my stockpile. That’s when I found my proof of his frugalness:
Just as he was closing the sliding shower door, he peeked around and said, “You know, there’s a coupon for Dove’s new manly bodywash in this month’s All You magazine. Just so you know.”
With a smile, I let him close the shower door. That’s my frugal husband!
