Fellas - budget a little tight this year?  Here are 5 Things you can do for your wife for the holidays that won't set you back an arm and a leg…


5 (practical) Things you can do for the wife for the holidays to keep yourself in the "Knight in Shining Armor" category.

 - Oil, grease, and lubricate every squeaky hinge in the whole house.  For a bonus even fix that squeak in the hallway floor.

 - Clean the outside garbage cans.  You know they didn't come from the store smelling like that.  Lather, rinse, repeat - then do it again.  Those can be a great place for a stick-up…

 - Clean your exterior windows.  Using a newspaper to wipe cleaner off windows will help avoid streaking.  One hazard here - if you don't do it right, you will have to do it again.

  - Basic electrical work.  Change out a switch or install a ceiling fan or just change out all the burnt out light bulbs.  Nothing says 'I Love You' like cheating death with electricity.  Be safe though - actually turn the fixture off before doing anything more than changing a light bulb.

 - Clean the gutters.  Makes your house look nicer and allows your gutters to do their jobs correctly.  Better yet get some gutter covers.
