There are TONS of things lying around your house, that you'd most like throw away, that can be used for magic.
Magic doesnt have to be expensive herbs guys! I promise! I'm waaaay too broke for that myself.
So here's some ideas for the next time you're a broke, little witchling and need some spell ingredients on-the-go:
Not only do they give you light, but they're still super useful beyond that.
Don't have a lighter/don't wanna burn the place down? Charge your sigils on a lightbulb!
Got a burnt-out bulb? Use it as a place holder in a spell that you need "illumination" for. Like, if you needs some "bright" ideas or guidance or creativity.
You can totally use dust for locator spells. Want to have something old or lost found? Throw some dust into the mix!
If you want someone to gradually leave the picture, without causing them harm, you can so use dust.
Think about it: what builds up over time in your home, covering traces of what was once there? Or what do you have to blow off of old photo albums when you haven't pulled it out in five millennia? Dust. Makes sense, right?
3: Old Letters or Gifts
Are you like me and horde all kinds of birthday cards and gifts from exes that you'll never use or look at again? Keep them!
Objects like these are great taglocks for doing spells. If you don't want someone in your life anymore or do, whichever, using something they touched (or licked, yay envelopes!) is a great way to tag them to the spell.
Just be careful, though. You don't want to hurt someone accidentally.
4: Mis-Match Socks
No-partner socks are great on-the-go spell bags!
You can even use color magic with the socks to give your spell an extra boost.
Just be sure to wash them first. Yuck.
