Make Your Halloween Costume

In order to save money this Halloween, why not make your own Halloween Costume from things that you can find around your own home.

You could be a crayon or an oreo cookie from an old cardboard box. You could also use cardboard and aluminum foil to make your own Tin Man costume.

Try using black paint or chalk on a tire and rolling it over a Sweatshirt. You would be "Tired"....Someone else could put on a housecoat, an ice pack and put a thermometer in their mouth and be "Sick". Together you could be "Sick and Tired".

How about taping or glueing some old wrappers onto a white trash bag for a "White Trash" costume.

Here's another easy article on How to Make a Headless Halloween Costume.

Add Value to Your Home

I think a lot of times when we are trying to be frugal, we forget how important that it is to take care of our biggest asset. It may not be the most valuable for all folks, but for most, our most valueable asset is out home.

Take time to learn how to do minor home improvements that will keep your home in tip top shape. You will be surprised how inexpensive it is to maintain some of the smaller items if you do it yourself.

Here is an article titled How to Replace a Broken Ceramic Tile. If you have a single tile, or just a few that are broken, you will be surprised how inexpensive it is when you do the repairs yourself. And how simple do it yourself repair can be.

How to Relieve Stress

Well, I guess this isn't necessarily how to relieve stress but moreso, ways of dealing with the burdens of life:

1 Accept that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the statue!

2 Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.

3 Always read stuff that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it.

4 Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.

5 If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

6 If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

7 It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

8 Never buy a car you can't push.

9 Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.

10 Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance.

11 Since it's the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.

12 The second mouse gets the cheese.

13 When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

14 Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.

15 You may be only one person in the world, but you may also be the world to one person.

16 Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once.

17 We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have weird names and

all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.

18 A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

19 Have an awesome day and know that someone has thought about you today.

Halloween Costume

It's October, and Halloween will be here soon. In order to save a little cash this Halloween, why not make your own costumes instead of buying or renting a costume. Even the most extravagent of Halloween costumes can be made with simple things from around the home.

Here is an article titled How to Make a Headless Woman Costume.

You can use the same concept to make any sort of costume. For a headless man or other outfit, just use an oversized shirt and stick your head out of a few of the button holes.

Good luck to all of you on your Halloween costumes and Happy Halloween!!!
