3 Quick Household Tips to Save Money and Time



3 quick household saving tips that can save time, money and stress!

1. Dropped an egg on the floor? Spilled some cooking oil? Instead of using paper towels to wipe up a messy spills like those, try pouring salt on the spill. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. The salt should absorb the liquid and clumps should form, which make it easy to scoop up the mess with a spatula (save the paper towels!)

2.  Use lip balm to help keep outdoor light bulbs from getting stuck in the sockets; coat the threads in the base of the light bulb with lip balm before installing it in the socket.

3. Add 2 - 3 Tbs. of white vinegar into your bottle of liquid dish soap. The vinegar doubles the effectiveness of the dish soap so you will use less when cleaning the greasiest pots and pans!

Home Made Halloween Costumes

Halloween is around the corner...so 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!

Home Made Spider Costume

Needed:

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