Managing Debt

The New Year is always a time to start fresh and set new goals. This New Year is going to bring challenges for just about all of us with the economy woes of 2008 still lingering. But that just makes it more important than ever for people to sit down and set realistic financial goals as soon as possible. If you or someone you know is trying to Avoid Bankruptcy, it is vital to take action right away. Once the Christmas tree is down and the decorations have been put away, get started making your financial plans for 2009. Setting a firm budget and sticking to it will be important this year. Maybe finding some ways to increase your income will help some reduce their debt and improve their finances.
There are financial websites on the Internet that can help you determine your financial "health" currently, and help you figure out solutions to deal with your debt. You can get debt and finance advice right online, and analyze your individual situation. Research debt repayment plans and other options that may help you avoid bankruptcy.
The sooner you deal with your financial outlook and create a plan for improving your finances in 2009, the better you will feel as you welcome the coming year.

Home Made Spider Costume

long sleeve black top/shirt
4 long black socks
newspaper, grocery bags, paper bags, or anything else you can use to stuff the socks with

(I would suggest sewing the socks to securely attach them to the shirt, but duct tape can probably work as well.)

Next,  you will want to attach the black yarn in-between each sock and the cuffs of the shirt. This can be done in a couple of different ways. You can use the duct tape to attach a yarn piece at the cuff of the sleeve, and then tape the end of the yarn on t…
