Awesome DIY advice from Star Tips and Chizzy

So, what are you doing to save money during the recession? I certainly hope you haven’t been cutting back on being fabulous! But, just in case, “Star Tips” proves you don’t have to.

I haven’t been able to sort out what magazine these images are from, despite a full forty-five seconds on the Google. (Maybe Chat, but maybe not. If you know, please leave it in the comments.) The premise seems to be that readers send in their own money-saving tips. And, if your tip is awesome enough, Charlie and Lizzy (plural: “Chizzy”) will take a photo of themselves trying it out.

You should view the whole gallery, but here are a few of the choicer tips.

Plus, when you duck out of the “posh do” to freshen up in the ladies room, you can exfoliate!

Would make nice earrings, too!
In mine, every third post-it would say “Recalculating . . .” and would take five minutes to pull off the steering wheel.

Or, encourage your guests to eat lots and lots of mints, and enjoy the ensuing unicorn vomit.
Plus, is toothpaste really cheaper than mints? Really?

This is just one of many alternative uses for sanitary towels featured by Chizzy.  Others include shoe inserts, fake neck braces for frivolous lawsuits, and dressing like a terrorist to get cheap action from TSA. I assume.

This is my personal favorite. Sally Thomas of Stoke-on-Trent, we are all thrilled with your 3D hat picture!
