Happy Memorial Day from DealDash

Happy Memorial Day everyone! DealDash would like to take a moment to thank all of our service members, present and past, and wish everyone a wonderful day.

In case you weren’t aware, Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and the Coast Guard.  Memorial Day is observed every year on the last Monday of May. Normally people think of Memorial Day as the kickoff to the summer season, though technically this year the first day of summer is June 20th.

Memorial Day is not the same as Veteran’s Day; Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, and Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving our country. Veteran’s Day is celebrated on November 11th. Both are very important patriotic holidays that can serve as great learning experiences for children and can encourage them into learning more about our nation’s history.

Memorial Day is celebrated in a variety of ways; typically there are parades, people visit the graves of family members or even strangers who served in the military, there are picnics, and of course everyone’s favorite – BBQs!

May Is National Bike Month – Get Yours at DealDash

Most children and adults enjoy riding bikes in the nice weather. May is National Bike Month, if you need a new ride check out DealDash.

Bikes are fun for everyone who is able bodied enough to walk, from the smallest child to senior citizens. Bikes are not only fun, but they are the primary mode of transportation for many people, and burn lots of calories helping you get your work out for the day while you are enjoying a bike ride. Bikes are great for getting the family together for a nice ride around the neighborhood, and fun for small kids to just ride up and down the driveway. What kind of bike is right for you or your children or grandchildren, though? Read on below and we will discuss a few different types of bicycles and their targeted users.

Mountain bikes are ideal for biking on different kinds of terrains, especially rough and uneven trails. Mountain bikes have different speeds so you can transition from gravel roads to rough trails to a paved road with no problem whatsoever. Mountain bikes tend to be extremely sturdy and are built to take a beating and still last.

If mountains and rough trails aren’t your thing, how about a beach cruiser bike? Beach cruisers aren’t just for the beach! They have spring saddle seats for a comfortable and upright riding position, and swept-back cruiser handlebars for arm comfort. Beach cruisers are great bikes for the casual rider who enjoys a ride around the neighborhood instead of an intense workout. Beach cruisers are also a popular bike with seniors and vacationers. Personally, I have a Schwinn beach cruiser and it’s the most comfortable bike that I have ever ridden, and the only one that hasn’t caused me to have a sore body afterwards.

Lastly, we can’t forget children’s bikes! I’ve never met a kid who wasn’t excited to go for a bike ride. I got both of my older children bikes for Christmas and they are so excited for Spring to be here so they can go out and ride them more often. The most important thing with kid’s bikes is to make sure that you get your child the right size. I will include a chart below that shows what size bike (in inches) that you should be looking for when you are shopping for a bike for a child.

DealDash regularly has bikes for kids and adults , and even safety equipment up for auction. Please make sure that everyone in your family is wearing a helmet every single time they go for a bike ride, no matter how short or how close to home. It only takes one second to get into an accident.

So the next time you are in the market for a new bicycle or any of the other fine bike products that DealDash has to offer you should head on over, book your Bid Buddy, and sit back and enjoy the thrill of the auction. And remember, if you have bid up the auction to the point of retail price you should go ahead and hit the “Buy It Now” (BIN) button, because when you BIN the item for the retail price you get every single one of your bids back, immediately. You can then use them all over again to try and win another auction. Good luck and Happy Bidding, everyone!

Making Your Yard a Peaceful Place With DealDash

With all of the deadlines and hustle and bustle of life sometimes it’s nice to just come home and relax outside by your beautiful lawn. But what if your lawn isn’t so beautiful and peaceful?

As someone who is easily stressed out I crave quiet time alone just sitting outside on my deck that looks out over my lawn. However, after some poor lawn management last year my yard isn’t looking so nice. Luckily for me DealDash has plenty of things that can perk up my backyard to make it not only beautiful, but a peaceful and tranquil place that I can go and escape my worries for a few minutes.

I find the sound of running or trickling water extremely relaxing and peaceful. One of the first things that I would like to get to perk up my backyard is a fountain from DealDash.  The fountains that DealDash offers are made to last season after season, and they are constructed of stone powder and polyresin so they will be durable for outside use. If you think that a fountain would look great in your yard, garden, or patio you can check out this link here to see the fountains that DealDash is offering for auction.

Another thing that I have always admired in other people’s backyards is when there is a bench overlooking the yard, instead of just some lawn chairs. Benches lend a touch of class and they don’t break the bank, either. Benches are great if you want to share a seat with your kids or your sweetheart, and some benches even have gliding features built in for a soothing rocking effect. If you’re interested in checking out the benches up for offer on DealDash just click this link here and it will show you some different styles.

Time to Start the Garden With DealDash

It’s spring and time to start your garden! Let’s see what items that DealDash has that can help.

Growing your own vegetables is fun, rewarding, and can save you money. All you really need to get started is some decent soil and a few plants, but to be a really successful vegetable gardener you are going to need some supplies. DealDash has you covered.

Starting with the absolute basics aside from soil and plants, you are going to need some tools. DealDash has an awesome tool kit that’s just perfect for beginning your garden. Here is what the kit includes:

  • Leaf and flower trimmer
  • Water spray bottle
  • Branch and twig pruner
  • Spade
  • Trowel
  • Cultivator
  • Convenient carrying bag

I realize some people don’t have a lot of extra space for a garden, for example a lot of people don’t even have a yard due to living in an apartment or condo. Don’t worry, DealDash can help with that as well!

If you have even a small amount of space on a patio, deck, or balcony then a small raised garden bed might be the best bet for you to try. DealDash has a small Raised Garden Bed Kit that can provide you with an easy way to grow and display herbs, flowers or vegetables in smaller spaces. It’s made from recycled wood and plastic, the raised garden kit assembles easily with no tools. This wood and plastic garden bed measures 42″L x 42″W x 6″H and will not rot or decay since it’s made with quality in mind. If you would like to check out the small raised garden bed then just click this link right here.

Getting Ready for Summer Fun With DealDash

It’s just barely spring, but I am already excited about summer! Let’s see what we need to do to prepare for the season ahead.

First things first, you need to make sure that your lawn mower is in good working order. If your lawn mower is older or broken, maybe you should think about getting a new one for spring and summer. My lawn has started growing back in again after the cold winter, and my husband is going to need to go out and mow it pretty soon. DealDash has a few different types of mowers, both the gas type and the electric type. If you are in the market for a new lawn mower for this year, how about checking out DealDash’s mowers at this link here.

Since you are checking out the lawn mowers, maybe you should check out the weed edgers and trimmers. DealDash has both the electric and the battery powered type. You might think that edging your lawn isn’t the most fun thing to do, and I would agree with you, however, if you want your lawn to look great it’s something that needs to be done. If you edge fairly frequently, so every two weeks, it’s not that time consuming and can be finished up pretty quickly. If you would like to check out the selection of lawn edgers on DealDash you can do that at this link here.

I’m sure you’re saying “Enough with the yard work, let’s have some fun!” Well don’t you worry, DealDash has plenty of opportunities for fun as well. There is a relatively new product that DealDash has only been offering for a short time, but it’s awesome for summer fun.

The summer fun item that I would like to suggest is one of the new wheeled hoverboards. There are many different makes and models of the wheeled hoverboard, but they all have the same basic functions.  They are all a type of portable, rechargeable battery-powered scooter. They also typically consist of two wheels arranged side-by-side, with two small platforms between the wheels, on which the rider stands. The device is controlled by the rider’s feet, standing on the built-in gyroscopic, sensored pads. I have never personally ridden one, but they certainly look like fun, many of the teens in my neighborhood have them and can be seen riding up and down the street having a wonderful time. If you’re interested in checking them out, here is the link to see them on DealDash.

I hope that you are having a lovely spring so far, but let’s get ready for summer! If you’d like to check out even more great things try the Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games section on DealDash at this link here. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Basketball Fans! The Season is Ready to Start

It’s October now and the 2015-2016 NBA season is about to begin! Let’s learn a little about basketball, then I’ll show you how you can get your own equipment to play at home on DealDash.

This upcoming 2015–16 NBA season is the 70th season of the National Basketball Association, isn’t that amazing? This year’s regular season will begin on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 at the United Center, which is the home of the Chicago Bulls, who will be hosting a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the early game. Later on in the night game the 2015 NBA champions Golden State Warriors will be hosting the New Orleans Pelicans. Who’s your favorite team? I live in Boston, so everyone here is wild about the Celtics, but in my heart I will always be a North Carolina girl, so the Charlotte Hornets are my top pick. Speaking of North Carolina and basketball, my fun trivia question for you is: What high school did Michael Jordan attend? If you answered Emsley A. Laney High you would be correct! I also attended Laney, but quite a few years after Michael.

Even though the NBA was established in 1946, the actual game of basketball was invented in 1891 in Springfield, Mass. The inventor of the game was a Phys Ed teacher named James Naismith, he invented basketball as a less injury-prone sport than football. After spreading around the fun of his new game, The first public basketball game was played in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 11, 1892.

If you enjoy watching basketball, then you might agree that playing basketball is even more fun! However, not everyone has easy access to a basketball court, so the next best thing is to set up your own basketball hoop in your driveway at home. DealDash has quite a few different basketball hoops that you can choose from, there are freestanding basketball hoops in both adult and youth sized, as well as stationary hoops that need to be mounted. Of course, if you’re setting up a basketball hoop you’re going to need a ball! DealDash has you covered on that one, too. They offer both official and youth sized basketballs.

If the outdoors aren’t really your thing, I totally understand. Up here in New England it’s absolutely too cold to be hanging out outside anytime after November, but don’t worry. DealDash has a solution for that, too. They occasionally offer an arcade-style basketball game up for auction. It’s just like the kind you might find at a family fun center, and it’s a great edition for your basement or playroom. You can get your basketball fix no matter what the weather!
