Playing the Lottery and Other Fiscally Responsible Ideas

Given the current economic situation, many of us are trying to find new ways to save money. I thought I would do a series of helpful suggestions for stretching your dollar. (or if this is rubbish, your pound)

Let's dive right in!

1)Everyone knows that babysitters are a total waste of money. When my husband and I go out for a night on the town, we throw down a bowl of water and some snacks and put the kids here.



The beauty of this is that it is simply one payment of about $40.00 for the cage.

2)Duct tape, duct tape, duct tape! You can use duct tape to fix everything! It also can be a babysitter. Check it!



However, this person used entirely too much tape here. Obviously a rookie, but you get the idea.

3)Finally, a smart way to make extra cash is by playing the lottery. Some jackoffs say that the lottery is just a tax on people who are bad at math, but I beg to differ, mostly because I don't understand that statement. The joke is gonna be on them when I win the 10 million dollars while only investing $100,000 on tickets over the past couple of years.

I leave you, my friends, with just a taste of what is to come. I am full of these great ideas. We're going to be rolling in dough soon. Let's stick together.

I'm with you on the cage. personally, when i go out of town I just leave my kids in a locker at the airport until I get back.

Those are awesome ideas. If I'd known it was that easy, I would have had children!

I duct tape the kids INTO the cage because they are wily, and they can get out in time.

@feefifoto-Great idea! I never even thought of that!

@reforming-Oh yeah! It's much easier than all those other whiners make it seem!

@mary-Another great idea! Thanks!

I don't bother with a cage I've got a big barrel instead. When I go out I put my Daughter in there and tell her to sit in the corner. Keeps her active as she paces around the barrel trying to work out if she's in the corner yet.
Have I overexplained again?
Must stop doing that even though I won a first annual award. Later.

Great tips. I'm forwarding it to Mrs. Crotchety's grown daughter so I don't have to babysit those freakin grandkids again. I'm one Hannah Montana song away from going postal.

My ONLY concern is that later on my kids will figure out it's also the best way to deal with ME when I'm old and decrepit. I'm praying for Leisure World.

Okay, well I'm firing my accountant and hiring you. He worked for doughnuts and the occasional mixed CD, so please advise if these terms will be acceptable for you as well.

Great I will forward these lovelies to my best friend, while I think my godson may be a little too strong for the duct tape I am not sure he has yet mastered picking locks. Now there is no excuse for her to miss girls nite out!

do the cages come in bigger sizes for teenagers who like to spend too much money at the mall.

Quirkyloon said...

Do they sell those kid cages at Wal-Mart?

What am I asking? Of course they do!

They sell EVERYTHING.

And always low prices!

OMG. Next time you want me to spit my drink out laughing please give me a heads up. The cage is great but the baby on the wall is classic.

And here I thought I was way too irresponsible to have kids. I might rethink that in light of these tips...
