Useful tips to get rid of unnecessary things


“The most important things in life aren’t things” Bulletin of The First Christian Church

Everyone with a time can find him self among the mountains of unnecessary things, growing day by day. These mountains for years gathering dust at home taking our personal space. We keep the old stuff because of genetic concerns about the “worst of times” are coming , and those are things we definitely will need in this particular day. Tones of old dishes, clothes, magazines and gadgets are unlikely to help us in this difficult moment.

Old things attract old energy, which sometimes takes us on a path to success. To move forward we need leave the past.  We just like an air balloon need to get rid of ballast, to fly up.
It definitely easier to keep house clean when no junk is spoiling our harmony.

General approach: cruelly get rid from junk.

Some tips to help you to decide:

  • Think about it – you can place you things to the attic for a while, just to think if you actually need them. The motivation is to check second rule.
  • The 2 years rule – if you didn’t use something in the last 2 year, probably you will never use it again.

After you decide what items to get rid of, you have 3 options to do it:

  • Item can be sold – It would be much comfortable to say goodbye to your old iphone 3 if you pass it to “good hands” and for symbolic penny. You can easily sell anything on classifieds sites or internet auctions.
  • Give item away – Similar to previous one, but without a penny :) Look around, maybe someone needs your old chair or sofa. The charity for schools, libraries, human rights organizations would be good option.
  • Throw it to junk – last option, your stuff will be burned or recycled.


Now, you can get to work.

Good luck!

Communication Tips

Now that you know how to contact the seller on Eireads, the tips below will help protect you against fraud throughout the sale process.

  • Ask questions – during your communication with the seller, whether by phone or email, make sure to clarify the details about the history and condition of the item. Ask to see photos if necessary.
  • Limit personal info – unless it is absolutely necessary, refrain from providing your home address or telephone number to the seller. However, if the seller seems credible, you may need to provide your name and mobile number.
  • Keep the payment simple – do not pay upfront for an item through Western Union or MoneyGram. Instead, it is best to pay in cash and in person once you receive the item.
  • Meet in a public place – once you’ve decided to buy the item, it is highly recommended for you to meet the seller in a public place. If the item is large (like an appliance), let someone know where you are going. If possible, ask a friend to go with you.

“It is better to be safe than sorry.” Remember to be careful when sending money to someone you haven’t met in person. Take advantage of escrow services whenever possible as a safety precaution.

Top 8 Tips to Save Money on Fuel

For a lot of people, driving is a necessity but that doesn’t mean you should spend more than you need to. It is possible to lower your fuel bill by driving smarter. In this article, we’ve compiled 10 easy ways you can save money on fuel. These practical guidelines can be done during everyday travels.

  • Remove unnecessary baggage – the car engines need to work harder when it is carrying heavier loads. Make it a point to remove the stuff at the boot of your car. Keep your car as light as possible. Your efforts will be reflected in your petrol bill.
  • Check your tire pressure – make sure that your car tires have enough air. Under-inflated tires are dangerous and it also increases your fuel consumption significantly.
  • Turn off the engine – if you expect the car to be stationary for more than a minute, you should turn off the engine. Modern cars are highly efficient so you won’t waste lots of fuel in turning the engine back on.
  • Keep the right gear – shift to a higher gear as soon as you can. Driving at lower engine speeds is recommended. In addition, you should anticipate the road ahead to avoid sudden braking.
  • Drive at a fixed speed – whenever possible, try to maintain your speed when driving. Sudden acceleration and deceleration wastes fuel. Driving at fixed speeds may also prolong the life of your engine and batteries.
  • Keep the engine maintained – have your car checked every year to determine which types of maintenance it requires. Maintaining the engine is particularly important because it is the “heart” of any vehicle.
  • Remove external gadgets – car manufacturers have designed vehicles that are as aerodynamic as possible. Adding external gadgets such as racks or roof boxes increases the drag of the car, making the engines work harder.
  • Buy a car according to your needs – if the main reason why you’re buying a car is to travel to and from work, then it would be more practical to buy a sedan as opposed to a 4×4 SUV. A smaller car consumes a lot less fuel so you get significant savings.

So before you buy a car, keep these tips in mind. It is important to look at these factors before you purchase a car on classified websites. Basically, improving the fuel economy of your car can help you save money over the long term.

Top 6 Tips to Save on Your Electricity Bill

If you are like most homeowners, you probably wish that your monthly electricity bill is lower. Electricity costs have been soaring in recent years and it is placing a heavy burden on homeowners. Fortunately, there are practical ways to save on your electricity bill. In this article, we’ll give you the lowdown on how to cut your electric bill significantly.

  • Unplug unused devices – you might think that you’re not being charged for electricity when you turn off your appliances but the truth is that appliances still use energy whenever it is plugged in. It is a good idea to unplug devices that are not in use from the electric socket. It might a good idea to buy sockets that have an “on/off” button so you won’t have to unplug the devices every time you leave the house.
  • Optimize your computer’s consumption – many people are in the habit of leaving the computer on when they take a break. It is recommended for you to put the computer on “hibernate” or “sleep” whenever you intend to leave the room for extended periods of time.

How to Protect Yourself Against Pet Sale Fraud

If you’re thinking of buying a pet online, it is important to take precautions against common scams on the internet. There are a lot of genuine sellers who would want nothing more than to find great homes for their dogs, cats, or rabbits. However, there are also scammers who are just lurking on various websites to find their next victim. You need to differentiate the real sellers from the scammers by taking note of the common modus operandi. There are two common types of pet sale scam. These are:

Scam 1: Adopt a pet for free but pay the delivery fee

This is a scam that many people fall for. The scammer usually makes up a sob story about how the pet has been rescued from an abusive household. They will say that they only want to find a suitable home for the puppy and that you were the chosen one. It is very crucial to take precautions if you hear these types of stories.

The next thing that the scammer would say is that you need to shoulder the delivery fee of $400 or more to receive the pet. Do not pay this delivery fee without having some form of protection (such as an escrow service) because the person you are dealing with is most likely a scammer.

Scam 2: Buy a pet from a “breeder” who forged documents and took pictures from other website

There are numerous scammers who pose as breeders. They usually ask for a deposit but once you make the payment, they disappear. These scammers usually steal the text copy and photos from legitimate listings so they can be hard to spot. You’ll fall in love with the cute puppy in the picture.

Before you go ahead and send the deposit, it is essential to be extra careful in your dealings. There is a good way to differentiate a genuine breeder from a scammer: ask the person to take a picture of the same dog with an object you can identify. For example, ask them to take a picture of the dog with a green blanket/ yellow ball or something else.

Here are other tips on how to detect a scam:

  1. Look at the picture closely for clues. In many cases, the scammer wouldn’t know much about dogs, cats, or other pets that they might be “selling”. So look at the photos they post and ask them specific questions about the dog’s breed and even whether the dog is male or female.
  2. Ask to see a picture of the same dog from different angles and with a background you can recognize.
  3. Be suspicious if the person asks to be paid via Western Union or other forms of “untraceable” payment method.
  4. Run a search on their email address on Google to see if there had been any complaints about it before.

Generally, if you have a bad feeling about a particular seller or breeder, it is important to steer clear. There are many legitimate sellers out there who can provide you with a great pet.
