Personally, I think that nothing feels better than a foot massage. But before you bribe,beg, pleadask nicely for said foot massage from your significant other, try this simple foot soak to remove rough skin on those feet:
Pour about 1 cup of warm milk into a basin of warm water. Soak feet for about 15-20 minutes, then scrub gently with a pumice stone or body scrub.
Then go get the massage, confident in the knowledge your feet are clean, smooth and soft!
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:
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!
This idea came from Kaboose.com-- 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
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…
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…
