Sub. for poor witches
Post # 1
By Lady SilverVixen
A Really big issue that most witch's come across is a lack of money. Thankfully, you don't need a lot of money to be a witch. Here is where I'm going to give you a lesson on being money savvy with your ritual supplies. If there are any suggestions or additions, please feel free to add them at the bottom of the lesson.

Cauldron - a bucket, a large pot from the kitchen

Wand - Harvesting your own wand is always prefered, just remember that when you harvest a wand you must give something back to nature in return.

Tarot cards - can be made by you yourself, and is actually some what prefered by many tarot readers as the tarot deck becomes specific to you and you alone.

Athame - a knife from the kitchen with a straight blade, a pocket knife, or is neither is available, you can use your index finger and middle finger together.

Scrying mirror- a simple hand mirror works just fine

Scrying bowl - a dark colored bowl from the kitchen, or one that you get cheap and then paint a dark color( usually black or brown)

Herbs in general - can be bought from the local grocery store

Runes - can be made by you, you can use dried out chicken bones, rocks you find, or even reinforced paper cubes.

Fine stones/semi precious - usually aren't to bad on price but when it's an issue, using stones you like that you find on a beach or in a rock pile work just as well.

Candles- also usually not to bad on price, usually 25cents to a dollar in most cases, when an issue, t-lights are just as good for representation of white, and now come in a wide variety of colors so take your pick

Altar- a milk crate, coffee table, end table, night stand, anything that is flat.

Altar cloth- simple fabric big enough to cover the surface being used as the altar. It is also a good idea to decorate it with symbols that mean something special to you.

When all else fails, remember - MAGIC IS ALL IN THE MIND, ALL THESE THINGS CAN BE CREATED IN YOUR MIND. Rituals can be done in the mind as well, just imagine all the tools and supplies on an altar, then preform the ritual in your 3rd eye.

Those are some very good suggestions you've posted.

Another suggestion for the cost-conscious Witch is to look for your tools and supplies at discount stores and second-hand stores. When I was just starting out I spent a lot of time going to local junk stores and second-hand stores to see what I could find. One item that I found was a lovely silver-plated cup which with a bit of polish became my chalice. I only paid $2.00 for it and I'm still using it these many years later.

Sure there are a lot of pretty...and very expensive tools that you can find at a metaphysical store. But there are plenty of lovely items that are just as useful out there in thrift stores if you'll just look.
