Super Cute Pet Costumes For 2022!

 

I can’t believe that Halloween is next month?  This year has flown by, and I have a brother & sister mini Doxie duo who will be one years old on 10/18/2022.

Of course,  I’ve been looking online and in store for some cute pet costumes to celebrate the day, and here’s what I’ve found below:

Aye Matey!

 

I love how Puff looks like he actually has some additional hair.  This has been the family favorite so far, so I’m pretty sure that this pirate hat will be the pick of the night.

 

Lion Hat

 

Ok….this Lion hat is really made for cats!  But, since my Doxie is a mini, it fits him.  I just can’t with that face!

Halloween Bandana

 

 

So, my little CoCo is probably going to wear a Halloween bandana.  She wants absolutely nothing to do with having something put on her head.

So, I took advantage of this 12 Piece Holiday Pet set!  It’s pretty much got every holiday, plus notice the boy & girl birthday bandanas!!  (I’ll post that picture later)!

 

 

2 Pack Halloween Dog Shirts

 

 

 

These little shirts are easy to put on, light weight, and washes well.  They’re perfect for warming our fuzzy family members up!


And finally, here’s a another spooktacular costume that has caught my eye!

24 LED Spider Dog Halloween Costume

 

 

Might as well light your pup up with this purple & orange lighted spider costume!  It’s a little pricier, but if your a Halloween fan like I am, it makes perfect cents!  Get it?

 

Cheap, Cute, Fall Decor Ideas

I love sharing cheap, cute, seasonal decor items, and this fall I plan on saving by buying a little new, used, and swap some fall decor with my family & friends.

That’s right swapping with some friends is a great way to take something you like already, and bedazzle it with a few decorating tricks.

Of course, you can buy pretty cheap at some of the online stores below:

The Dollar Tree

The Dollar Tree is a great place to find some super cute fall decor items.  The only problem is that if you don’t get these items in the store right away, you can count on them being GONE.  Thank goodness for online shopping, and they are really good about having flat rate shipping.  So take advantage of this feature, and also sign up for their newsletter.

Here’s some cute TDT finds below:

 Shop Fall Decor Starting at $1.25 at Dollar Tree!

I believe that The Dollar Tree has every pumpkin imaginable right now, and remember if it’s not in store go online to buy!  Here are a few items that I have already picked up below:

 

Amazon

 

 

Let’s Give ‘em Pumpkin to Talk About with my It’s Fall Y’all Idea List on Amazon!

And while you’re at it, you might as well take a look at my Spooktacular list too!  (It’s never too soon to shop for Halloween)!

Walmart

 

I have to admit that Walmart has quite a bit of fall decor items that are budget friendly and unique!  Check out there Hello Fall page!

 

 

EBay

 

And finally, I always take a look on EBay!  You can find just about anything on Ebay, and I mean anything.

I also like to check prices here before I buy on Amazon or Walmart.  Many times it’s just cheaper to buy on Ebay, and the Ebay guarantee is even better.

Well that’s it, my super saving friends.  I hope that you find some cute, cheap, fall decor items this season, and more importantly, let the pumpkin spice everything begin!

 

 

 

 

Off To College Items I Would Even Buy!

I may be way past my college days, but I find myself taking a glance at the suggested items on Amazon’s Off To College page.
Of course, they have your typical dorm room essentials, but some of the techie gadgets and portable electronics I would even buy.  Check out my little suggestive list below.

5 Things My Grams Taught Me About Gardening

Gardening Tips

When I was a kid, in the 70’s, I never really realized the importance of having a garden.

All I knew was that my Grams grew one, and I had to help her strip the beans of those awful strings, and then snap em into smaller pieces.  ( I didn’t think it would ever end). LOL

Today, I grow my own urban backyard garden, and here’s the 5 things my green thumb Grams taught me.

1. You can grow a garden anywhere!

Gardening isn’t limited to a big yard anymore.  People grow food on their patios, rooftops, apartment banisters, or vertically on walls.  My Grams used flower pots, whiskey barrels, and of course her little patch of land in her front yard.

She also grew grapes on a long, metal fence, and had a couple of cherry trees to boot.  Bottom line is, being creative with what you got, is key.

2. Its hard work, but boy oh boy, the food taste GOOD!

There is nothing better than walking outside your door, and picking the perfect beefsteak tomato, slicing it up, and putting it between two pieces of bread with mayo.

Or, how about picking a couple of cherry tomatoes, and throwing those babies on your freshly made salad, hence, that you grew from the garden too!  It simply taste so GOOD!


3.It’s healthier

If you want control over what’s in your food, then growing your own, is the way to go!  Many people have food intolerances, including me, and I like whole, natural, foods without all the chemicals.  Nuff said.

4. Build your seasonal recipes around your harvest, and then extend it by preserving.

Grams canned, froze, or dehydrated whatever she could get her hands on.  My grandparents ate what was in season, and canned the rest for the winter months.

I have a feeling with the rising costs of produce, that preserving products are going to go sky high, and out of stock.  So, if you’re thinking about the ancient art of preserving, then check out my

Canning Essentials Idea List.

I also HIGHLY recommend that you get this All American Canner.  I have had mine since 2012, and it’s been worth every penny.  It’s a canning machine, that’s solid steel, with excellent results.

5. Save money, by stockpiling those gardening goodies

My grandmother grew up in Chicago, Il during the Great Depression, and there were many times that she had to beg for food as a child.  She always told me that she wasn’t too proud to beg, because she was simply hungry.

Fortunately, for all of us, she made it through those difficult times, and learned how grow her own food.

Her canned soups, stews, chili, relishes, and jams were to die for, and oh….how I loved her variety of jams and jellies.

And finally, as you can imagine, it was extremely important to her, to have a stockpile of food on hand in case of an emergency.  It not only gave her a little sense of security, but she loved to tell the stories on her produce savings.  Now you can see where I get it from.

I know that there are a ton of you out there that can relate to these grandparent gardening tips, and I hope it inspires you to take the challenge and grow your own food.  I promise you will get hooked, ecspecially when you know you grew it yourself.  Happy Harvesting All!
