One of the many privileges of being a fully-fledged housefrau is the

opportunity to collect and shred "women's magazines." If you want to

economize, only buy the ones without cleavage on the cover. Cleavage

6. Sort your photos and throw out the headless red-eyed pictures OR


7. Make time for friends by planning when to chat and setting lunch

dates OR allow your friends to freeload conveniently in your toolshed

until they run out of air.
