I had a really cool experience with this sachet! Until now, this sachet has been charging in a black drawstring bag with money, corresponding tarot cards, and an enchanted devil’s shoestring (so charging for about 3~4 days). Today, when I decided to use my tarot cards and check on the sachet, immediately after opening the black bag & smelling the sachet, I noticed a gold coin on my floor (the one pictured)… I have never owned a $1 James Monroe coin before and I had just vacuumed so I have no idea how it got there! Immediately, I knew I had to share!!! I was going to wait until I had used it in my new serving job, but this was way to cool! It smells amazing and has lots of strong energy~!
Chamomile : Money
Patchouly : Money
Basil : Wealth
Elder : Prosperity
Lemon Balm : Success
Bay Leaf : To write your sigil
Enchant all of your herbs as necessary. On a bay leaf, create a sigil or write out intention. I personally created a sigil based off the intention. “I will make good money.” Burn the bay leaf and then add to enchanted herbs. Place into sachet and DONE!
To make this sachet more effective…
Bind with green ribbon/lace
Burn a green candle while creating this Sachet
How I charged my sachet…
I think how I charged this sachet largely influences its energy! I placed my sachet in a black drawstring bag (you could also wrap in cloth or put in larger jar) with the following items:
Money (I just put $2)
King of Pentacles
Ace of Pentacles
VII of Pentacles
Page of Pentacles
X of Pentacles
IX of Pentacles
Enchanted Devil’s Shoestring
The longer you charge your sachet, the more effective it will be! I hope everyone has positive results!
One of the most expensive college experiences is buying textbooks. There are some various options that you have though. My main point is in regards to the last option “loose-leaf books”. Even if you usually buy used and think you save the most money possible, look at this option as it is something I have never heard of before and assume that most other people haven’t either!
What to take into consideration when purchasing/renting books:
How long will you keep the book (for the semester vs. forever)
Do you plan on marking in the book
Is the book for your major or for a general education class
If you purchase used: quality of the book (markings, highlighting, tears, wear, water damage, stains, broken binding, etc.)
If you purchase online: reliability of the seller (look at feedback)
How long will it take for you to receive your book (is it on back-order)
Purchase from the bookstore: Please don’t do this. This is the place that you will probably spend the most on textbooks. Unless you wish to spend hundreds of dollars more than you need to, there is no reason to purchase books at your school’s bookstore.
Purchase New: If you want to buy a book in pristine condition, you can buy new books online via amazon. Usually this is a cheaper option than buying through the bookstore. This still isn’t the cheapest option but if you plan on keeping the book for future classes or for your career and you will repeatedly refer back to it, then this is a good option. You don’t have to worry about wear/tear from previous owners and there isn’t any writing or marking in the book which is always nice.
Purchase Used: Most of the books I have purchased throughout my undergraduate/masters programs have been used. You can look for these books through amazon, half.com, and other similar sites. You can even ask around on campus and see if there is someone who is willing to sell you their old book. Make sure to check out or ask about the condition of the book. If there is some scuffing, is this really such a big deal? On the other hand, if it is all marked up and written in is this going to benefit you or confuse you? When purchasing used the main thing I pay attention to is the amount of marking that is in the book.
Rent: This is another option for saving money on books. The biggest flaw (in my opinion) is that you won’t be able to mark in the book. I guess you could overcome this problem via sticky notes, but you would still have to worry about accidently spilling on the book in those late night study sessions with coffee. I guess as clumsy as I am, this is not an option as I would consider but to each their own. If you do this, I would put a heavy-duty book cover on the book and be very aware of liquids or other things that could damage the book.
Loose-leaf books: This is something that I just learned about in the past month. I figured this out via amazon. There was a book I had to purchase for the upcoming semester that was going to cost me around $250 new or upwards of $200 used in good condition. I don’t know about other people, but I really don’t want to spend that much on a statistics book that I probably won’t use again after the class is over. As I was searching amazon (my preferred site for buying books) I noticed there was a copy that was posted for about $110. My first reaction was “what is wrong with this book?” You want to be aware of cheap copies usually because there is something seriously wrong with the book when it is that cheap (usually, not always). As I read the description I realized that it was a “loose-leaf” copy of the book. Basically it is the textbook, but unbound and three-hole punched. I purchased this, it came wrapped in saran wrap, and I put it in a “heavy duty binder” (because I always have at least 3 empty ones on hand. If you love binders like I do… I have a weird binder fetish… then this is a great option for saving money! The nice thing too is if you just need one chapter of the book, you can place it in another binder and not have to carry the entire thing to the library or across campus. Honestly there is so much information about the previous options I listed, but I had never previously heard about this option and I don’t know how common it is. If you love binders and want to save money though, you should seriously consider this option! Here are some pictures for all my “visual” followers.
How I received the “book”:

Behold, the first spell I’ve ever written :D Made because my physical/mental issues are making it really difficult for me to find employment outside my home and I’m more than slightly desperate. In our society, the issue so often is that one thing must be exchanged for another and that nothing should be merely given without recompense (which in this situation is pretty shitty) but this spell addresses a little of that, too. I hope this works for anyone who might need it :)
What you’ll need:
Allspice (luck, money) Almond (money, prosperity) Basil (wealth) Cinnamon (success) Maple seeds or leaf (money) Salt (represents Earth, the element associated with wealth) Patchouli incense (money) A small bottle or jar A green candle Five pennies
Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent
What to do:
1. Gather your supplies and cast your circle (if that’s your thing).
2. Place cinnamon, maple leaf/seeds, salt, almond, allspice, and basil inside your jar or bottle and close it with a lid or cork (I put the salt in first to act as the foundation, since it represents Earth but y’all do whatever feels right).
3. Light your candle, light the incense with the candle flame, and hold your bottle above the incense smoke while reciting the following:
I cannot do all that I must So in this spell I place my trust That to me shall be brought the wealth I haven’t strength to earn myself
My limits keep me shut away In mind at night, indoors by day But I shan’t take and close my hand; To all I’ll give what joy I can
So with due haste, bring wealth to me Without, within, so let it be.
5. Place the pennies on your work surface in a star formation (point up) while focusing on your intent (attracting wealth), and then place your bottle or jar in the center.
6. As you allow it to sit between the pennies, drip some of the green wax from the candle onto the lid to seal it.
7. You’re done! Close your circle, snuff your candle and incense, and clean your space. You may now place the bottle somewhere in your home, but keep the pennies with you in your wallet, coin purse, pocket etc.
This was a gift that I gave to a friend for success, prosperity, strength and luck in the coming new year.
You will need:
a small corked bottle whole almonds (employment, money, health) rose buds (protection) chamomile flowers (money, luck) bay leaf (strength) ground ginger (money, success, power) five finger leaf (money, health, power, wisdom) ground cinnamon(success, money) ground allspice (money, luck) ground clove (money) elm bark (protection from gossip and false friends) mandrake root (prosperity, gives the spell a kick) orange zest (joy, health, purification) rosemary a sigil for prosperity, strength, and luck
Add all of the ground ingredients to the bottle first. Write the sigil on a small piece of paper and roll it up like a scroll and add it to the bottle. Add the whole pieces last, arranging nicely as best as you can. While doing this, you can whisper the specifications for your “wish” into the bottle or just focus on the desired outcome as you assemble the bottle.
do you know what the highest price you can sell something for in retail as an auction?
The initial price suggested when an item is put in the flea market is its regular resell value. Villagers are still willing to purchase items for a lot more than that price. The equation is Y = 4X - 1 < 10.000 with X being the amount of Bells that Reese suggests, and Y being the maximum amount of Bells you can get for it. That means that an item can be sold for 1 Bell less than 4 times the price Reese suggests for the item, as long as the price will stay beneath 10.000. The maximum profit is achieved on an item worth 2.500 Bells. (source)

So I recently became unemployed (I’m actually okay with this) and I’ll been going through the archives looking for a new job or financial prosperity spell that I could adapt to fit my situation, but no luck!
I decided to take this opportunity to cast my first original spell! Please feel free to add to or leave out anything that you like. This is what I had at hand tonight and is kind of impromptu so, I’m sure the spell will evolve over time.
I conducted this spell on a Tuesday during the Waxing Moon.
What You’ll Need:
- Small glass bottle
- Green candle
- Funnel (not pictured)
- Money Maker oil (Can use any money/ luck oil, ie., Cinnamon, Ginger, Bayberry, etc.)
- Vervain: attracts wealth, removes negative energies, aids creativity
** I found whole clove and allspice in my cabinet after I had finished, so they aren’t used in this current charm; had I found them earlier I definitely would have included them. **
Combine all your herbs with your mortar and pestle until good and ground/mixed. Really focus on your intentions while grinding down herbs. I like to sing to send more energy into the mixture but that’s just me.
Uncork your bottle or remove the lid and place your funnel inside the mouth of the bottle.
take a pinch full or ¼ of the bottle of your herb mixture and funnel it into your bottle
Place a drop of money maker oil into the bottle just about coating the herbs.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until the bottle is full or you have no more herbs left, making sure you top off the bottle with a drop of oil.
Seal/Cork your bottle and light your green candle. Once the candle is starts melting down, seal your bottle with the green melted wax. This ensures the bottle will not open, releasing it’s energy.
While the candle is still lit, place your bottle over the flame until you see your residual oil around the bottom of the bottle start to bubble. (This shouldn’t take more than a minute)
Once cool, petition whomever your seek guidance in to bless and grant your success in your finances or career/ get a new job/ come into stable money.
For a mock up of what I said:
Blessed be to you Oshun (Ochun), Goddess of all things beautiful/
I call on you to allow me to find a new job/
Thank you Oshun, Goddess of the rivers and streams/
The protector of your children/
I come to you tonight for guidance in my finances/
For you are gracious as you are beautiful/
Mother Oshun, in you all things are possible/
Your child thanks you.
Place it on your altar or keep it on your person to keep it charged.
Let me know if you ever use this and how you adapted it for your needs!
