Looking at the Fashion, Health, & Beauty DealDash Category

 

DealDash

You might be surprised at what is in the Fashion, Health, and Beauty section. Let’s see what we can find.

   The Fashion, Health, and Beauty category has always been one of my favorites! Let’s break it down into each section. The items are each very different but all follow the common theme of either fashion, health, or beauty.
  Fashion – While it’s fairly rare that DealDash has a lot of clothing up for auction, there is occasionally a piece of clothing for your wardrobe. My theory of why DealDash rarely has clothing up for auction is because everyone is a different size, and there would be no way to select your size after winning. Also, a size medium in one brand can be a vastly different size of a medium in a different brand. When we are speaking of fashion on DealDash we are mostly talking about jewelry, watches, purses, hats, and backpacks.
  Health – Health items on DealDash tend to be of the pampering kind, such as foot massagers, Back massagers, and even extremely fancy “dream” massage chairs. As in, it’s only a dream for most people to own one. The health part of the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category includes some practical health items as well such as blood pressure monitors, electronic toothbrushes, digital thermometers, and even fitness trackers.
  Beauty – The beauty in the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category includes such things as perfume, hair dryers, flat iron hair straighteners, make up brushes, and more. These are my personal favorite items on the entire DealDash site, because I normally don’t treat myself to things just for me, but when I win one of these great beauty items I am very happy to receive it.
  So there it is, a quick overview of my favorite section, the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category. Judging from the competition in the the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category a lot of people enjoy this section on DealDash. If you would like to check out the the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category for yourself, just click this link right here.
  I hope that this article has peaked your interest in exploring the different categories at DealDash. Go check them out! Good luck and happy bidding everyone.

Let’s Look at the DealDash Categories

You might be surprised at what is hiding in the different DealDash categories. Let’s take a peek.

 
Bid Packs – Okay, there really is no hidden mystery about bid packs! They come in standard sized packs of 25, 40, 60, 80, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 400, 500, 800, 1000, 1500, 3000, and sometimes 5000.
Electronics and Computers – Computers and tablets rule this section, however there are also a lot of other awesome and surprising things to find here in this category. For instance, this is where you can find full sized keyboards! That would be a really fun thing to bid on. In this section is also where you can find cameras and camera accessories, phones, phone chargers, and phone cases, and let’s not forget video game systems and the games to go with them!
Fashion, Health, and Beauty – This particular category has always been one of my favorites! It’s actually gotten a major makeover recently, and not instead of just having the standard things that you might expect such as hair dryers, flat iron hair straighteners, and other “girly” type stuff now Fashion, Health and Beauty boasts some impressive massage chairs, foot massagers, jewelry, and designer bags. Those massage chairs are amazing, I have demoed similar ones in the store, and they practically had to kick me out for overstaying my welcome.
Gift Cards – Again, no real surprises in the Gift Card section. However, there are a lot of really useful and fun gift cards here. There are gift cards for the kids such as Toys R Us, gift cards for Mom and Grandma such as Bath and Body Works, gift cards for Dad and Grandpa such as Bass Pro Shops, and gift cards that the whole family can enjoy such as Target, Wal*Mart, CVS, and many more.
Hobbies, Toys, Outdoors, and Games – This section is another favorite of mine. I have gotten my kids so many fun things from this section. Here is where you will find classic favorites such as bikes, grills, luggage, baby items, and Lego – but you will also find new and interesting things such as the new wheeled “hoverboards” that are so popular right now.
Home, Garden, and Tools – This is another section that has gotten a major makeover recently. It used to offer mostly daily use items such as garden hoses, tool sets, and vacuum cleaners – but now it offers those items as well as high end designer furniture and accessories. If you haven’t been to the Home, Garden, and Tools section recently, go check it out.
Kitchen and Dining – I have gotten almost all of my kitchen items here, from my pots and pans to my bamboo spoon set. This is a great section to replace anything that you need in your kitchen, from the more expensive things like stand mixers, to the cheaper things like dish drainers. You might even want to treat yourself to a fancy knife set, because this section offers that, too!
I hope that this article has peaked your interest in exploring the different categories at DealDash. Go check them out! Good luck and happy bidding everyone.

Surviving the Holidays With Help from DealDash

 

As fun as the holidays are, some people just can’t get into the spirit. Here are some tips to help get through the next few weeks.

No matter what the reason, be it Seasonal Effective Disorder, baby blues, or just a dislike of the holidays in general you have a right to your feelings, and you’re going to need to find ways to keep yourself busy during the next few weeks. Here are some ideas to start off your thought process.

How about learning a new skill, such as cooking a specific meal or food item? Everyone else is baking Christmas cookies or planning on roasting a turkey, but how about you learn how to make home made pasta? It’s much more delicious than store bought pasta, and you can make it as healthy (or not!) as you choose. If you have a Kitchenaid stand mixer you can make pasta really quickly and easily. Here is a simple recipe you can follow:

Ingredients:

    • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour, sifted (plus extra flour for preparing)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons water

KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Quart Mixer, Cobalt BlueKitchenAid Pasta Roller Attachment

Directions:

 

  • Place eggs, water, flour and salt in mixer bowl. Attached bowl and flat beater. Turn to speed 2 and mix for 30 to 60 seconds. Add more water if the dough is too dry, in 1/2 Tablespoon increments.
  • Change out the flat beater for the dough hook. Turn to speed 2 and knead for 2 minutes. Remove the dough and knead by hand for 2 minutes. Let it rest for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Cut dough into four pieces before processing with pasta sheet attachment. Take one piece and flatten into a rectangular shape. Adding flour to both sides. Be sure to cover the other pieces. Attach the pasta sheet roller to your stand mixer and set it to #1. Turn on the stand mixer to speed 2 and run the pasta dough through the pasta sheet roller. While on #1, fold the dough in half and run it through again. Do this several times.
  • Adding a little bit of flour on each side of the dough again, change setting to #2 and pass the pasta dough through the sheet roller. Do this twice and then twice each on #3 and then #4. If you want thicker dough, don’t do the #4 setting.
  • Once again, add flour to each side of your long pasta sheet. Change the attachment to your spaghetti or fettuccine cutter and turn on to speed 2. Run the pasta sheet through and with your left hand, hold on to the pasta as it comes through the cutter. Allow pasta to dry for a few minutes before boiling.
  • When boiling your pasta, it only needs 3 to 7 minutes to boil.

You can get a Kitchenaid mixer and all of it’s various attachments on DealDash. Just click this link here and it will take you to the auctions. If pasta making sounds fun but maybe a little too ambitious check out DealDash’s Kitchen & Appliances section and perhaps you can find a fun new kitchen gadget that’s more your speed.

If cooking really isn’t your thing, how about using your extra time off from work (assuming you get holiday time off!) and do some of those extra projects around the house that you have been putting off for a while now? I can think of a few projects off the top of my head that need doing around my house, and I bet you can, too. If you’re really not much of a handy sort, how about getting a basic tool set from DealDash? You could get something like the Essentials 34 piece tool kit and have just about everything you need for a small project. You can find that auction, and other tool kit auctions at this link here.

Essentials 34-Piece Around the House Tool Kit with Screwdriver

If you’re more advanced in your handiness you could pick up something a little trickier to use such as a rotary tool set or even a hammer drill. Check out the Home, Garden, & Tools section here on DealDash and see what you can discover.

Of course, there’s nothing more fun than sitting down at your computer and just browsing all of the different areas on DealDash. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

 

 

GreenWorks Mower

Caring for the Earth With GreenWorks

Now that we are deeply embedded into Spring heading quickly towards Summer my mind is on yard work of all sorts. Mowing, weeding, shaping up branches and bushes, all of these things need to be done.

If you’re concerned about emissions and your carbon footprint consider GreenWorks to get your yard work done. Greenworks has many different products to choose from – electric mowers, battery powered chainsaws, electric leaf blowers, and more.

Greenworks 20202 G-MAX Cordless 12-inch ChainsawGreenworks 12 amp Electric Leaf Blower/Vac

The best thing about all of the products that GreenWorks makes is their products have a ZERO carbon footprint. The entire product line will never release an ounce of carbon emission into the air! Isn’t that amazing when we are talking about machines that usually put noxious gas fumes into the air? Here’s a fun fact that GreenWorks provided – Did you know that Fifty-four million Americans mow their lawns every weekend (according to the EPA), using 800 million gallons of gas each year. Also, homeowners spill more than 17 million gallons of gas while refueling. Mowing your yard can feel like following an old clunker of a car down the highway – you inhale gas fumes the entire way. Since GreenWorks products are powered by batteries and electricity you are helping the Earth by using these zero emissions products in place of the gas guzzlers.

Did you know that GreenWorks was a Pro Tool Innovation Award winner in 2014? A panel of judges representing tool professionals from across the United States weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and GreenWorks was selected as a recipient of this honor.

If you’re worried that such a new and innovative company might not make products as sturdy as some of the older “Grandpas” in the industry, remember that GreenWorks backs every tool with a full four-year warranty, and the lithium-ion batteries are backed with a 2 year warranty. GreenWorks has high quality products that are manufactured to last. That’s why they back every product with a warranty that’s twice the industry standard.

I think that the most interesting product that GreenWorks makes is their
20-Inch 12 Amp Electric Discharge Lawn Mower. Not only is it electric, it’s also a really cool green color! Worried about grass stains? Not on this mower you’re not! Here are the stats on this mower:

  • 12 Amp Electric Motor delivers enough power to cut through the toughest grass
  • Durable steel 20-Inch cutting deck gets the job done quicker and more efficiently
  • 3-in-1 feature provides multiple options for grass clippings from rear bagging, side discharge and mulching capabilities for versatile needs
  • 7 position height adjustment offers a range of cutting height from 1 1/2-Inch to 3 3/4-Inch for the perfect cut on all grass types
  • Wide 10-Inch rear wheels and 7-Inch front wheels

The Original Pink Box Makes Repairs Fun!

I have always been extremely crafty, I like to sew and scrapbook. You might be surprised, but when you think about it, crafting and being handy around the house go hand-in-hand.

I love to be able to fix small repairs, when we moved into our brand new house a couple of months ago there were handy things that needed to be done. We had to purchase and hang our own bathroom mirrors, put up blinds and curtains, and install door stoppers. Luckily for me, I had already ordered my The Original Pink Box 30-piece tool kit from DealDash. It had absolutely everything that I needed to get started doing minor home repairs, including a tape measure, hammer, pliers, screw driver tips, and more.

Here is a full list of what is included:

  •  12″ bag with 24 inside and outside pockets
  • 12-ounce hammer
  •  16′ self locking tape measure
  •     6″ needle nose pliers
  •     6″ slip joint pliers
  •   8 piece hex key wrench set in holder (SAE: 1/16″, 5/64″, 3/32″, 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 7/32″, 1/4″)
  •  Bit driver
  • 19 piece 1” bits set
  •  1″ extension bar
  • 4pc Precision Screwdrivers (Phillips #0, Phillips #1, Slotted 2.4mm, Slotted 3.0mm)

The Original Pink box also makes many other products including a Cordless 10-volt lithium ion reciprocating saw, 18-volt lithium ion cordless circular saw, 18-Volt Lithium Ion replacement battery, paint brush and putty knife sets, and more! The Original Pink Box also carries a full line of tool chests and other great storage items.

The Original Pink Box tools are so cute, yet they are just as rugged and finely made as some of the more “masculine” tool sets. I love that there are tools made that fit my personal aesthetic without compromising quality. These The Original Pink Box tools even get my little daughter excited about learning how to use tools, she loves to help, and the fact that these tools are her (and my!) favorite color makes them all the more fun to use!

The Original Pink Box company is based in California, and tries to keep jobs in the USA by manufacturing most of their tool components here. They have even recently bought new machinery so they are able to produce more of their parts right here in the USA.

If you’re interested in owning some of The Original Pink Box tools – which by the way is the only full tool line with all pink tools, DealDash has you covered. Head on over to DealDash and see all of the awesome tool auctions that are coming up soon.
