Six Common Characteristics of Millionaires

Want to be a millionaire, or at least become more money savvy than you are now? There is an article on six traits common to millionaires over on Savvy Sugar that might get you started in the right direction. 2010 is fast approaching, bringing a fresh start with it. Why not take some time now (in-between Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts and stressing in general), to start gathering your money plans for next year? Check out these six common habits of millionaires:

1. Learn from your mistakes. Instead of getting stuck in regrets and frustration, learn from mistakes and get value from them going forward.

2. Whether you can afford to pay top dollar or not, don't skip the process of comparing prices and seeking out deals-- the wealthiest of people will still look for value.

3. Find your niche. Most people who earn big bucks have found a niche that increases their demand and therefore, their paychecks. Doing what everyone else does probably won't make you rich.

4. Watch where your money goes. Money-savvy people know where and how their money is spent. They also pay attention to their saving habits.Bottom line: be accountable for your personal finances.

5. Watch those extra fees. People with nest eggs watch out for extra fees, and avoid them at all costs. A smart habit to get into that can definitely save you money. Pay bills on time, return video rentals on time, be aware of credit card fees, cell phone provider fees, etc...

6. Check out Savvy Sugar (I'm bad, I know!) to find out the last trait of millionaires. Hint-- it has to do with believing.

How do you plan on getting money smart in 2010?

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.
