Don't count your chickens before dinner
Don't count your chickens before they're hatched. This means that you shouldn't count on getting something until you really have it.
Kyle Smith
Never put off 'til tomorrow--rest
Never put off 'til tomorrow, what you can do today. It means to play today. I think it means to do something early before it is to late.
Lezlie White
I cant hear you shake your bells.
I can't hear you shake your head. This means that you're smart but when you can hear your head shake that means you're usually stupid.
Ashley Deyoung
Here today, gone tomorrow--I think it is the next day.
Brittany Johnson
Beauty is in the eye of cats
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder--someone is trapped.
Jimmy Burch
You have nothing to fear but the Boogy man
You have nothing to fear, but fear itself. The real saying means that you have nothing to fear.
Jose Cisneros
A picture is worth $200.00
A picture is worth a thousand words. I think it means a picture with thousands of words around it.
Jason Drexel
All that glitters are balloons
All that glitters isn't gold. Gold is worth more than a diamond, a penny, a nickel, a dime, and a quarter in money. Gold is worth more money than anything on earth.
Sarah Frisbie
A stitch in time saves clothes
A stitch in time saves nine. This means you save 9 dollars.

Do to others what you would have them do to you
You can do something. You do what you have to do to others.

A penny saved is a penny
You earned it and you saved it. I think if you save a penny you've earned it because you can spend it when you earn enough.
Raquel Mazur
No news is no mail
No news is good news. It might be bad news. If there is no news there is nothing to be read good or bad.
Ryan Moran
Better late than tomorrow
Better late than never. I think it means better late today than waiting till tomorrow.
Stephanie Shively
All for one and one for all
If there are three kids and three pieces of candy each kid gets one piece. I think that it means the saying that the three Muskateers say.
Jessica Ritter
Hey is for cats
Hey is for horses. This means that horses eat hay.
Katie Mitchell
Early to bed and tomorrow you will wake up
Early to bed early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. If you go to bed early you will wake up early and be smart.
Lauren Hansen
Look before you see
Look before you leap. Look in case anybody is coming before you jump around.
Ali Pietrucha
Easy come, easy below
Easy come, easy go. It means that someone is telling somebody else to do come and go. It means that somebody is telling another person that to go or come to a place it's easy.
Justin Phillips
"CAN'T" never did a thing in its nest
"CAN'T" never did a thing in its life. They can never do it. That whoever "CAN'T" has never done anything in is life.
