Save Some Money on Auto Insurance

A good way to save some extra money is by making sure you have the lowest prices on your car insurance possible. Compare prices periodically and check to see if there is a more affordable plan than your current one. One of the easiest things to do is get online and compare insurance plans and companies, and get instant quotes. You may find that that you can get a better more affordable plan than what you currently have. And when you save money on car insurance, you can actually make money as well. The trick is in self-discipline. Calculate your savings with the lower insurance plan as compared to your old insurance plan, and put that difference in a savings account. Then not only have you saved money, you have made money as well. And will continue to do make money with the interest on the savings.

And there are tips to keep in mind that may help you lower you car insurance costs even more. For example, did you know that you may get a lower quote on your coverage if you have automatic seat belts and/or air bags in your car? Or that raising your deductible is that your insurance premium will go down by as much as 20% to 30% on the comprehensive and collision coverage part of your policy? Some companies may offer discounts for certain features such as anti-lock brakes. Discounts may be available for having things like a good driving record, defensive driver training discounts, more than one car, anti-theft or tracking devices, car alarms, other policies with the same company and more. So be sure to check out all possible ways to save on your car insurance policy befor you buy.

Things To Do With Empty Cans of Soup

All of these ideas start with a clean empty soup can with no jagged edges. For some you may want to peel off the labels, others you might just leave the labels on!

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the time to start cooking up some Halloween costumes you can make from home and save money while treating your little ghosts and goblins to a fun night!

This idea came from I just changed a couple of things, but basically the costume idea is the same.

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
a black knit cap
black yarn

Stuff each sock with paper or bags or filling of some sort.

Attach each sock to the side seams of the shirt (two socks on each side)
(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…

Make Your Own Strawberry Facial Scrub

Wondering what to do with summer strawberries that are getting soft and mushy? Instead of throwing them away, use them to make this awesome facial scrub that smells as good as it feels.

3-Ingredient Strawberry Facial Scrub

All you need are 2 strawberries, 1 tsp. honey and 1/4 cup sugar. That's it.

Blend the strawberries and yogurt together in a blender for a few minutes or until you get a smooth mixture. Then add the sugar slowly until you see a grainy pinkish paste.

Gently massage the strawberry paste on your face for a minute or so. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your skin dry with a soft towel.

Strawberries contain salicylic acid - an ingredient used to fight acne and other skin blemishes. So while you are enjoying the sweet strawberry scent, you are helping your skin at the same time.

A new use for old strawberries.
