Funny Security Sign

funny security signAfter having my car burglarized in my own drive way, I got mad and went to the shooting range to let off a little steam.

I brought home my range target which happened to be a silhouette of a person and I thought, “I need to make a sign warning anyone else who wants to rip me off.”

So, I got to work on a new security sign for my front yard and you can see the out come of my genius mind. My new security sign which I have in my front yard just off to the side of my drive way, says, “Sorry we missed you!” “Stop by Again.”

I thought this was pretty darn good even if I had to say so myself, and by the reaction around the neighborhood I was right.

Not to let a good thing go unnoticed, I decided to make my sign available for others who like it also, so, I made a Cafe Press Store, featuring all my “Sorry We Missed You” items.

If you know anyone who is pro gun, likes gun humor, loves a good funny security sign, or just has a strange sense of humor like myself, go check out my Cafe Press Store for all the items now available with my security sign on it.

Change Your Bank to Save Money

coinssmallerEverybody is trying to save money these days and it is not easy. One simple thing you can do is change you bank!

If you bank is charging you fees for everything you do there, including putting your money in; it is time to change your bank.

I use a credit union and have no fees for anything I do there. PLUS I also make 2% interest on the money I have in my checking account! How many people can say that any more?

Look around, don’t let you bank rob you blind. You can check online for the banks and credit unions in your area and check out what their fee schedule is. Save a couple dollars here and a couple dollars there can add up quickly.

Money Tip – Pay More Than Minimum on Credit Cards

credit cardsIf you really want to get out of debt, you are going to have to start paying more on your credit cards than the minimum amount!

Start with your highest interest rate card and pay whatever you can on that card until you get it paid off.  Yes, this is going to hurt but, if you really want to get out of debt this is what needs to be done.

Try to pay a little over the minimum on each of the other cards you have also.

Negotiate with your credit cards to see if you can get lower interest rates on them.  If you find one card that will lower your interest rate considerably, consider transferring over the debt from your other cards.  You may also be able to work in a no fee transfer arrangement with this card, ask, it can’t hurt.

It may take you years to get your credit cards paid off, but, if you make a serious effort to payoff what you can afford, you will get to being free of debt once more.

10 Steps to Planning Your Themed Party

themed party

 All themed parties are going to start with some basic steps you are going to want to follow to make your party an overwhelming success.

1) Come up with your theme. We have a HUGE list below that may help you pick the theme for your party

2) Create your lists… yes lists! Food to buy list, themed items list (napkins, plates, decorations, etc.), preparation list (what is your time frame for everything from planning to cooking), by making lists you will be sure to be organized and ready when it comes to the big party!

3) Create one more list – Your guest list Think about those people you want to invite and if they would be willing to get in to the occasion and really dress up. Have small items that go with your theme for those who choose not to dress up, like: Mardi Gras beads for the non dresser or maybe a hat that goes with your theme for the shy party goer.

4) Create your own invitations or purchase already made themed invitations

5) Create a budget. It is very easy to get carried away with creating the perfect themed party for your loved ones.

6) Gather themed materials you will using for your party. We have found many items you may want to use and will provide links for you later.

7) Pay attention to details check your lists, and check your lists again.

8) Keep the party flowing smoothly. You are in charge of keeping the kids busy, or making sure the adults are mingling. It is your job to hold the party together and make it a success. Hosting a party is a balancing act and you are the one they all expect to make it balance from start to finish.

9) Have a back up plan! If you are planning an outdoor party, what will you do if it rains? Plan for all worst case scenarios.

10) After the party. Did you plan for clean up? Will your guest help you? Should you hire someone to come in and clean up for you? Have plenty of large garbage bags on hand. Have a plan.
