Before you put a dent in your budget as the holiday season gets underway, consider the following three easy ways to save on the scariest day of the year.DIYReuse decorations you have from previous years then call it a day on purchasing more décor.

Then head home and spend time together making fun crafts that your kids can proudly display on the porch and around your home.Put a cap on the candyJust because your neighborhood gets hundreds of trick-or-treaters per year, doesn’t me you have to hand out candy until midnight.

Springboks Beat England to Win Rugby World Cup

first_imgAnd despite four penalties from captain Owen Farrell they never looked like closing that gap as the Springboks produced an outstanding display to match those of 1995 in Johannesburg and 2007 in Paris.Those were iconic moments for a nation besotted with rugby and when Siya Kolisi lifted the William Webb Ellis trophy aloft as the first black man to captain the Springboks they will have the final part of a triptych that will endure forever in the country’s collective memory.For England it was a chastening end to a campaign that had promised to end the 16-year wait for the World Cup glory.They were out-muscled, out-run and out-thought by a team transformed by the leadership of skipper Kolisi and the coaching of Rassie Erasmus.Never before has a team beaten in the group stages gone on to win the trophy, but this is a triumph to match that of the teams of Francois Pienaar and John Smit with a wider story that perhaps surpasses both.RESULTS & FIXTURESBournemouth 1 – 0 Man UnitedArsenal 1 – 1 WolvesAston Villa 1 – 2 LiverpoolBrighton 2 – 0 NorwichMan City 2 – 1 SouthamptonSheffield United 3 – 0 BurnleyWest Ham 2 – 3 NewcastleWatford 1 – 2 ChelseaEspanyol 1 – 2 ValenciaLevante 3 – 1 BarcelonaSevilla 1 – 1 Atl MadridRoma 2 – 1 NapoliBologna 1 – 2 InterCrystal Palace v Leicester 3pmEverton v Tottenham 5:30pmJOY M.
