    Thifting the WitchyWay

    One of the great things about getting Thrifty with it is- dun dun dun…The Hunt! One of my favorite hunting grounds is your local thrift store. There are thousands of these fine establishments all across the US and a quick internet search should give you at least a few in your area to choose from. They range from privately owned, to church owned, to big charity ones like the Salvation Army or the Goodwill. Some people don’t like to give their patronage to a church or religiously affiliated establishment if they wouldn’t feel comfortable giving that same organization a cash donation. Personally I at least give these places a browse…

    Thrifting the WitchyWay

    It’s time for everyone to sit back in their desk and pretend to pay attention to the annoying and embarrassing grainy public service announcement that the teacher is about to play- but hey it’s better than algebra right? Ok so it’s not that bad, but we here at Thrifting the Witchy Way take our Spiritual Hygiene very seriously. While we’re out there hunting for those special pieces we need to remember that we can bring home more than just a bargain. Just by living we imprint ourselves and our spiritual energy on our belongings every day.  This is not a bad thing, and many items you find out there will…

One of the key things to adding all that personal connection to your projects is YOU. Make sure that when you are sitting down to work on them that you are relaxed, enjoying yourself, and in a good mood. Put on some music, have your tools set out…

    Thrifting the WitchyWay

    My Dad always told me that life is how you see it. As a witch I know that how I see the world is the most important tool I have to change it. Focus, will, and intent are the foundations that any spell/ritual/working are built on, but you have to see what you are trying to effect and you have to have the imagination to really see and believe in the change you are trying to bring about. With out the focus to see the world as it is, and the imagination to believe it can be different then we cannot change it. But luckily we’re witches so we have…

    Thrifting the WitchyWay

    Hello all and welcome to Thrifting the Witchy Way! (take a good look at this picture, it will be important later- there may be a quiz) This is my first article here on Pagan Pages so be gentle.  So let’s just dive right in. First let’s tackle the big one- why thrift? The economy these days sucks BIG TIME. So how is the money savvy witch or witch enthusiast (you know who you are and we love you!) going to spread the brimstone and cobwebs? Get thrifty, that’s how. Witchy style thrifting is so much more than just saving money, or having some creative fun. It’s taking something that is…
