Although they tout the tropical tiki-themed drink is good enough to bring a zombie to life, it sounds like if you have more than one it could also turn you into one, but it does sound delectable.
My apologies for not participating in "Countdown To Halloween" this year and lack of posting, but have been busy in my off-line life:)

It is hard to believe the above cost around $9 and using one of your favorite photos, you could do this also.
Frugal Babe posted how she did this with a photo on a flash drive and a trip to Staples (an office supply store with a copy center) and ordered an "Engineering" sized print that is 2 feet by 3 feet for under $4 and took about 10 minutes. I had no idea this was possible, which is why I am sharing this here as it is a unique and frugal idea.
The frame for around $5 at Goodwill before hand to decide what size picture she wanted printed and she placed the picture in an area away from the sun to prevent fading.

With graduation just around the corner, here is an almost free clever packaging idea to give a grad - a "graduation cap" jar from a recycled jar, some felt, a button and embroidery thread.
Depending on the size and shape of the jar and the present, such as a Smartphone, an Ipod, gift cards or cash, or print out a picture of a larger item, then tuck it inside a piece of white printer paper rolled up to look like a diploma and tied with ribbon.

For a winter clothing drive for charity in Sao Paolo, Brazil an agency by the name of Loducca came up with the idea of having an empty space (Loja Vazia means "empty show") in a mall where people could bring in their pre-loved clothing for donation and then stylists would arrange donations on displays, but at night pack everything up for donation and the store would be empty again.
This was done at BRMalls Shopping VillaLobos and over 3.2 tons of clothing has been collected. It has been so successful and with other malls expressing interest have open sourced the concept so now kits, blueprints and promotional materials are available to anyone for free.

Self-proclaimed redneck Larry the Cable Guy has out a line of basic spices, such as Oregano and Parsley, and some interesting named ones like "Beer Can Roasted Chicken", "Wild Game" and "Roadkill" Spice.
I actually thought is was a joke when I first saw this at the store and another celebrity cashing in on their popularity and attaching their name to a product, but then had second thought, he does look like a guy who enjoys food and as it was only .99 cents, I picked up some steak seasoning to try.
In checking into it, I found the profits help support the Git -R-Done Foundation and their mission statement is to: “Provide assistance to charitable organizations that have experienced hardships beyond their control, with an emphasis on children and veterans. “
The size of the donations made by the foundation are formidable - $5 Million dollar donation to The International Hip Dysplasia Institute and $1.2 Million donation to The Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital.
The spices are sold at Big Lots, Dollar Tree, 99 Cent Only Stores and some Save-A-Lot stores.
I tried the Steak Seasoning and it contains: Sea salt, minced garlic, minced onion, black pepper, cracked coriander, fennel seed, crushed chilies and mustard seed. It did give give the steak an interesting flavor and I think it would be delicious to use to make fajitas.
As profits go to charity and the cost is less than many other spices on the market, I will probably try some more of his spices, but if he puts out a perfume I won't be jumping on that bandwagon...to embody him it would have to smell like dirt, sweat and fish with a dash of gastrointestinal problems.
What are your thoughts on this?
