How to Save Three Dollars

So you want to learn how to juggle but you don’t quite have the budget to go out and buy $5 balls, $7 rings, and $30 clubs.

I have the answer for you.

You could just use anything currently lying around the house, like balled-up socks, tomatoes, or kittens.  But if you use socks, you might get them dirty and have to wash them again.  If you use tomatoes you might bruise them.  If you use kittens, well, you’re just cruel.

The best free thing with which to learn how to juggle is the plastic grocery bag!  Chances are someone in your family (I won’t name who it is in mine) collects these by the millions in the chance of an apocalyptic Armageddon that sends people on a plastic grocery bag rush at the stores….just in case.

Since I have millions in my home, I simply grab a handful whenever I go teach people how to juggle.  I then rip off the handles and wha-lah….a juggling bag similar to the feather-weight juggling scarves used in elementary schools across the country.  And those sell for a dollar a piece.

So you are saving yourself three amazing dollars by taking this advice  Imagine what you could do with three dollars!
