Save Me A Cent

All I read lately is about how bad times are and that we are all trying to save and get ahead somehow. Yes, that is sad that the “good times” are over but shouldn’t we make the best of what we have???? That was how it was when I was a kid. But, modern time’s people living beyond their means or can or could cause problems or the influence of things that are out of your control….

I’m no financial wizard nor do I want to be but the advice from around the globe as to how to save a penny here and there seems somewhat overrated in my eyes and so I have interpreted the ways to save cash in my words:

Penny pinching: It may be cool in certain circles but for those less fortunate who have to pinch every penny it may not be so fun …. So that sort of advice you can take it as you see best for yourself.

Secondhand-stores: They have always been around; only before no one ever gave them a second thought until nowadays were the trend to be trendy is to shop there… I need to be in!!

Gardening & good living: We have always done gardening but nowadays it’s not for pleasure it’s a must for many. But you can say what you want home grown veggies taste really good and it does give your life that little extra and to see the results of your garden and to say…. I did that myself !!

Hotel Balconia: Many of you out there may not have heard of this great place and it should be on the top of your vacation list! Hotel Balconia has a very familiar flair you don’t need to drive hours to get there and it offers all the luxuries of home… Have you guessed where it is??? Right – staying at home

Cleaner air: Maybe a fact where you are living but isn’t that only because you can’t afford to drive your car and the factory around the corner that employed so many people shut down and moved somewhere else (you all know why). A positive fact is that if you own a bicycle you can get it out and ride around and enjoy the clean air and get exercise at the same time, and save going to the gym for a workout( now that’s a money savings tip!)

Books: First spend your hard earned money on an e-reader and then you can read to your heart’s content as long as you have paid your electricity bill to recharge the battery in your e-reader and have enough money left over to buy the e-books. Logical conclusion in my eyes as long as you don’t need to buy glasses…..

Divorce: No one in their right mind will get a divorce nowadays it’s too expensive. So they stick it out with their partner, and as the “old saying” goes, and now it holds true ….. For better or worse- Honey we are staying together no matter what!!!

Families: These days when people are penny pinching , gardening , not divorcing and Hotel Balconiaing it, then naturally they are together and will eat their meals together.. What else is there to do except be together and be a family… Wasn’t it like that too in earlier times before the computer????

This whole business with saving, reading, gardening and so forth has worn me out already.. So those of you out there reading this… Take a deep breath and clear your mind and approach your life as you see best!!

P.S. Just a little thank you to all of you people out there who are reading & following my blog.

Sleep tight when the color’s right!

Reading such news about the color of my bedroom and how good I sleep at night brought about nightmares last night and I didn’t sleep good at all and so I guess I’ve gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning because my bedroom is the wrong color….. How can anything be more devastating than that; I ask???? I hope all of you out there reading this have or will in the future have painted or will paint your bedroom so that you can see well at night otherwise….. Those colors will be creeping from the walls and then who knows what will happen.

Really now, I never had problems sleeping before until this color problem was brought to my attention… the colors of sleep!! I cannot figure out how the color of your bedroom can cause sleep problems, because aren’t your eyes shut when you sleep… or has that changed too???

But then again the color of your bedroom may be an indicator of your dreams… or????

A blue bedroom may remind you of being on an ocean cruise …. Good if you like water otherwise it could be rough sailing at night. Not a good idea for people who get seasick easily.

A yellow bedroom – the sunny thoughts are with you once you open your eyes and are there again when you want to retire in the evening… though sunglasses may be needed if the yellow is tooooo bright.

A green bedroom – a meadow with green grass swaying in the breeze.. How lovely, but not for those who have allergies because you will be kept awake all night sneezing.

A silver bedroom – every cloud has a silver lining, so things will always be sparkling no matter what time of day it is… almost like a pirate’s chest filled with silver!

An orange bedroom – When you like to dream about the sunshine state with orange groves you will just have to lie down in bed and shut your eyes and you can float off into a relaxing night dreaming that you are sitting on the beach and in the morning when you wake –up an orange wall will bring back those orangey memories.

A red bedroom …. This means that the dreams will be explosive and full of action… whether or not you wake-up rested could depend on how dramatic your dreams were…. Maybe not a color for people who like a good night’s sleep!

A gold bedroom – just know right away that all dreams are in gold and that you will be surrounded by the luxury that gold can afford, so long your dreaming and when you wake-up you feel like a golden day has just begun!

A gray bedroom- not exactly a put me in a good mood for sleeping and dreaming… this color could put a gray cloud over your bedroom and make you somewhat unhappy when you wake-up in the morning and see gray walls ….. Maybe a color more for another room in the house?

A brown bedroom – gives you an earthy feeling that you are connected with the soil in your garden ….great for gardeners because you can dream about flower beds and how you want your yard to look. The color can inspire the green thumb in you!

The last color is purple – not a color I ever thought about for a bedroom, but it is an interesting color and could add a feeling of prosperity to the room making you feel like this is my bedroom and here I sleep and dream about be prosperous!

Whatever color you choose; I am sure it’s the right color because you only see the color when your eyes are open and not when you are asleep… So,sleep tight when the color’s right!
