Hi! I’m Danielle and welcome to The Basic Housewife!

According to the dictionary, a housewife is “a married woman whose main occupation is caring for her family, managing household affairs, and doing housework.”

So in that sense no, I’m not actually a housewife…at least not in the traditional sense. I don’t stay at home and cook dinner for my husband (unless you count ordering take-out?), and a good deep clean is about as common as an eclipse. HOWEVER, I have a house, I’m a wife, so technically…you get my vibe right?

In reality, I work a full-time day job and I own a gorgeous little home in the suburbs (doesn’t get more housewife-y than that, am I right!?)

I love a good t-shirt. I LIVE for black leggings. I have a weird obsession with Starbucks Doubleshot Energy drinks. Overall, I am the epitome of basic. *shrug* But most importantly, I LOVE creating amazing content that people can relate to.

So whether I’m a “housewife” or not, I have a pretty stellar life and want to share my thrifty lifestyle with you. So that leads us into the next question…
