We will all agree that we are going through some tough financial times in America. It may not have hit your home head on but you probably know people that have been hit by the recession. I have a friend whose husband was working for a company that was being paid by the government. He kept working and they quit paying because the government found loopholes in their contract.

If you’re like most fashionistas, you got a little addicted to The Rachel Zoe Project. The reality series followed celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe around LA and New York as she shopped for and dressed some of Hollywood’s most well-dressed stars and also did a little mad vintage shopping for herself. There’s no doubt that we’d all love to be in Rachel’s sky high platforms (at least for a day or two), and while that’s far from reality, you can shop some of Rachel’s goodies right now on eBay.
What is your back-up plan? You know, the one that you hope you never have to use? I am suggesting that starting a preschool could be a livelihood for you at anytime, not just as a back-up plan. You might ask, how is that possible? Let me explain.
First, set a color scheme. Most fall tablescapes have warm, firey colors, like your reds, oranges, golds, and browns. If you don’t have china in this color, then bargain shop at places like TJ MAXX, Marshalls, and Walmart for 8 -12 solid placesettings in one of the above colors. You should check your local thrift store Dallas TX as well. You will be able to use these dishes over and over again for years to come, so it will be money well spent.
Managing Money – Keep your cash on you at all times. A fanny pack around the waist is a good idea. Go to the bank and get change ahead of time such as coins and dollar bills. Keep a tally of items you sold and for how much money. Keep a calculator on hand to add a large quantity of items.
