There is another thread asking if you keep large secrets from your Darling Husband, but what about the little things?
Confession: I have a secret set of toenail clippers. Darling Husband would always take my nice clippers and lose them, leave them in the shower to rust, or generally muck them up and break them. Now, I buy the $.99 ones from Walgreens and litter them all over the house so he can ruin those instead. I have one really nice set of clippers that I hide in a box of tampons in the bathroom. If he can’t find the cheapos I will lie through my teeth and tell him that we don’t have any, he’ll have to go buy some. He’s not getting his hands (feet?) on my nice clippers!

@MrsCarnival: You’re a GEEEEEENIUS! Muahahahahaaaaaaa!
I have a hidden set of tweezers- I found him PICKING HIS NOSE HAIRS WITH MY EYEBROW TWEEZERS OMG I NEARLY DIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, I have a pair of nice ones tucked away and I leave out the old nasty ones for his nostrils. *shudder*
I also denied having eaten the very last thin mint.

@MrsCarnival: Lol, that’s really cute. Edit- my SO NEVER knows where his clippers are and is always borrowing mine. Then he fusses about them because apparently only his cut his nails “right”.
Mine is along the same lines- I recently started buying nail polish and nail stuff after not doing anything with my nails since high school. He was APPALLED to hear that a particular bottle of polish cost $2 (this was Wet n’ Wild, so pretty cheap!) so after subsequent shopping trips I have not mentioned to him that the Essie polishes I bought are around $8 and other products in the $10+ price range. I asked him how much a bottle of polish should cost and he said fifty cents.
There are other things I can’t think of right now (aside from the amount of chocolate I eat, which is probably pretty common) but I’ll come back if I think of something.

He hates fish sauce (a SE Asian condiment like soy sauce) so I use it and tell him I didn’t. For the record, it smells BEFORE it’s cooked… afterward, you clearly can’t even tell it’s there!

This is hysterical!
I have tweezers that I adore, too, and nobody, I mean nobody, including my beloved husband, is ever getting their paws on them. Once I had misplaced it in my makeup case and I about had a conniption fit before I found it.
I probably don’t tell him every little teeny tiny thing – like the latest dumb work gossip that would bore him to tears. I only tell him the good, juicy stuff. 🙂

Um, how much I actually online shop 😀

@DaneLady: BRB gotta go hide my tweezers! I swear if I ever caught him tweezing his nose hairs I’d hang him with them!
I would, however, not object to him using them for that maverick eyebrow hair that’s been driving me nuts lately.
@kgirl91: Pfft men. Though Darling Husband did just about keel over when I told him how much I spend on my foundation…
@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: We both love fish sauce! It functions like salt for us, but I can see how the smell before cooking might be off-putting for some. It took me a little while to come around to it.

This is a weird one, and not exactly a good thing, but I have an easier time telling other people little things about how great he is, rather than telling him. (It’s always been my habit to praise people more to other people than directly).
Don’t really know how to break that habit.

@MrsCarnival: Maverick eyebrow HAH! My poor sister has a unibrow and we call it “The Caterpillar” so when she didn’t keep up with it and it would grow out she’d call and tell me “It’s time for a caterpillar killer!” (I used to do her eyebrows, rather make her eyebrow two instead of one, but she’s 19 now so she can handle her own stuff!)

@joya_aspera: Have you tried writing him notes? Sometimes it’s easier for me to say things in writing than in person. 🙂

I don’t tell him who I’m kissing/sexing in my dreams. LOL. I wake up feeling guilty for a second, but I get over that quickly and then I just smile all day.

I secretly like to watch QVC. I almost never oder anything, but I love to put it on for background when I’m cleaning, crafting, etc. but I’m ashamed so I only watch when MrMojito is at work!

“Pfft men. Though Darling Husband did just about keel over when I told him how much I spend on my foundation…”
@MrsCarnival: Darling Husband used to model professionally as a teenager. He had custom blended foundation and doesn’t bat an eye at what I spend on cosmetics because his was more expensive.
Edited to add: I couldn’t think of stuff I hide from Darling Husband, then I realized he might not know exactly how often I treat myself to Starbucks.

I didn’t think I kept anything from my Fiance but after reading this thread I realize that I do! There’s a local “ice cream” place that we love in the summer…Except that it’s really frozen yogurt. I know if I told him that’s what I was getting him, he would say he didn’t like it and refuse to eat it.
“Babe, I don’t like froze yogurt.” Well, actually, you DO.
