Save Money With Free Yoga Classes, Free Movies and Free Haircuts!

The best way to save money that I know of is simple: Don't spend it! Just because I am so anxious to help you save your money, I am sharing 3 fun freebies with you, including free yoga classes, free movies, and free haircuts!

Free Yoga Classes: Go to, and find a lululemon store close to you. Most stores are offering FREE yoga classes, usually on Sunday mornings-but each store may have different days/times, so check carefully. As well as the yoga clsses, some stores may offer free Pilate classes. So head on over (after you finish reading this post, of course!) and see if there is a store near you.

Free Movies: If you want to have a night out but are limited on cash, check out these two sites for free movies in your area:, and OR, just make a bowl of popcorn, and watch a free movie at home at

Free Haircuts: Tons of beauty schools offer free haircuts so their students can practice their craft--and they are supervised by the pro's, so you don't have to worry. Go to to find your nearest participating beauty school, then call to make an appointment!

Free Bowling: Surprise! I have one more fun freebie to share with you ( I am generous that way.) You and up to nine other friends or family members can have a free game of bowling at AMF LANES. All you do is sign up for AMF's free e-club at, and they'll email you coupons. Bonus: The club's newsletters come with deals every month!

You provided some new sites, that I haven't heard of before... thanks! Craig and I are really trying to save money this year. Because we are SO CLOSE to paying off our house. We want to knock that debt out in 2010. These ideas will help keep our entertainment budget in line! Thanks again!

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!

1.. Having a picnic? Use empty Campbells soup cans as utensil holders for plastic forks and spoons on the picnic tables. (leave labels on ..adds a colorful unique touch!)

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."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
6. Make a Hanukkah Gift out of a soup can.
7. Make a Christmas Lum…

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…

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip Starbucks--make your own coffee
Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches
Make spaghetti 2 times a week--skip the meat
Buy a water filter and drink tap water--skip the bottled waters
Put back one item from your grocery cart each time you shop--and save the co…
