Save & Splurge

Jess Hicks ("Like the hillbillies, or Bill."), bikini waxer, enjoys taking care of her husband

How do you save money?

"I quit smoking-cigarettes, that is. I also bought a moped and no longer drive my car. My moped gets 150 miles to the gallon. I only have to fill it up once a month. Some bikini waxing tips, if you're going to do it at home, is that it needs to be long enough to pinch with your fingertips before you can wax it. Once you start waxing, don't start shaving. You'll want to keep up with the waxing. I'm all for anal bleaching, but I haven't been trained to do that. If you want to bleach your anus, I say 'High five!'"


How do you splurge money?

"Our big splurges have been on more fuel-efficient vehicles, like scooters and motorcycles. Lately I've been buying stuff for my house. I've been painting and putting in carpet-things like that. It's ironic that I'm laying carpet since I make my living ripping it up."
