Leanne and The Boyfriend take a closer look at each of these tips and share what works for them in a relationship. 

The Boyfriend mentioned that he goes to the grocery store and Leanne manages the laundry. This is because Leanne really hates going to the grocery store. She shares how grocery shopping stresses her out. This is mostly because she shops at Trader Joes (which is great) but there are so many people and the parking lot is nuts. Leanne doesn’t mind going if it’s at 7am when the store first opens.

The Boyfriend does the grocery shopping Yes, they went off on a slight tangent.
