Three things I hide from my husband

Okay, so this post might seem like a ramble jamble mish mash, but stick with me here. I’ve got some truth telling to do, a product review, AND a give-a-way!

Let’s start with a little secret. I hide things from DH. Three in fact.

1) JuJubes. It’s not so much that I hide them, it’s more …. “if he doesn’t think to look for candy behind the tea, that’s his problem…” So not hiding. Just not obvious:)

2) The total price of things. I feel I’m not alone in this one. I round down, especially with Antiques or vintage items. He sees the bills, he knows the truth so why I why round down is beyond me.

and finally, #3. This one is a recent addition to the list and I’ll tell you why shortly.

3) I hide the dish soap. Say what?! Yes, you read that right. I hide the dish soap. Well, it’s more like I hide the soap I super love and don’t want to share with DH and put out another brand kinda hide. Or did, until now. So here’s the story and some quick back story.

The back story:
We don’t have a dishwasher, this is on purpose and we don’t miss it or need. All of our dishes are done by hand, and we both do our fair share. We also live in the country and are on a septic system, which means we are VERY conscious of the products we use (in addition to just caring about our health and that of our dogs).

Setting the stage:
In September at Blog Podium we all received a goodie bag from the generous sponsors. One delightful find inside the bag was a bottle of dish soap and some hand soap from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, along with a note saying she was coming back to Canada. I was SO EXCITED! Remember when Tar-jay was here? (sniff. I miss you Tar-jay) Well, this stuff was sold there and I was a huge fan. Then Tar-jay went away, which meant the only Canadian source was gone. But guess what kids!? Mrs. Meyer’s is BACK! As of now, this very moment you can buy it all over Canada. Which is amazing and means I can stop hiding the dish soap from DH.

The story:
The reason I’ve been hiding it is because I love it so much. The smell…oh the smell. You’ve never done dishes and breathed so deeply. Add to that how well it cleans, and well…I wanted it all to myself until I could get more. And guess what?! I got YOU some too! I was so excited to get the news from the Mrs. Meyer’s team it was coming to Canada, that I reached out to them and told them about how I love it so much I hide it from DH. So they sent me some more stuff to try and the results are in.

It’s love people.

I used the all purpose cleaner on basically the whole house before we left for our Cuban holiday, and it not only did the job crazy well, the smell was heavenly. You might not think this matters all the much, but it does. When you’re on your knees in front of the fridge with your head and torso wedged inside to clean the very depths of it, you’ll be grateful for a non-toxic delightful smell that also cleans.

    Hi! I totally "round down" with the hubby.... ticks him off to no end! Also say I buy a $40.00 frame and return it a few weeks later because it didn't suit and end up with a $50.00 one... I tell the hubs well this one was only like 10 bucks ( he doesn't need to know the "extra" part!!) LOL Thankfully he likes jujubes and I like chocolate so we both team up to hide them from the kids!

    I sneak treats like chocolate and chips into our grocery shopping runs and don't tell him about it. I then hide them in our pantry and eat them when he's not around. Shhh.....

    I hide the three ply tissues with lotion from my husband. He will use them to wipe up a spill and use half the box to do it, even though there are paper towels on the counter that are actually meant for wiping up spills.

    I am queen of the round down too! Especially when it comes to getting my hair done at the salon :| Anything new that I bring home i.e. home decor, bed sheets, towels, they were always 'on sale' and a good deal. I'm working on saving us poor! lol
