are you sure you aren’t just trying to sell the free cars?
are you sure you aren’t just trying to sell the free cars?
It’s my personal car that I just want to get rid of, but get money off of it, instead of destroying it or replacing it.

If you have a hunk of junk sitting in your driveway that you no longer want, you may want to sell car scrap metal to earn a bit of money off it. This isn’t as simple as driving it to the junk yard and getting a check though. There is a delicate process involved. Below are four tips to consider so you make your selling process a lot smoother.
If you are going to sell your car for just scrap metal, you will need it to be clean of everything but the metal. That means removing all of the fluids and wires inside. Drain everything you can think of, and have it flushed out if you know someone who can do that. You should also take out the seats, radio, engine, oil pan, steering column and just about anything else you can think of. You need to just have metal on the car left and nothing else. Most scrap places won’t accept cars that are not stripped.
When you remove the actual parts of the car to sell, be sure to move them carefully. Parts like the engine, wheels, transmission and brakes can all be sold as parts instead of metal. You’ll make a lot more money with them going down that route, so be sure that you assess what you can sell and carefully store it while the body of the car turns to scraps. Anything salvageable from the interior and under the hood could lead to profits.
You need to figure out your car scrap value ahead of time so you know you are getting a good deal. You could try looking up other parts for sale online similar to yours and see what they are going for. You could also call different junkyards in the state to see how much they would pay for the parts you have. If there are a lot of different prices floating around, you can at least learn where to take your parts to from that phone call.
If you have a lot of sellable parts parts from your car, you can sell them yourself for good money. For instance, you may be able to sell car scrap on eBay, or post an ad for your parts on Craigslist. Local buyers can see what you have for sale and call you about it. You can haggle sales from there and hopefully make a lot of money from the deal. If you get a good idea of the worth for the parts from the quotes you can work in tip 3. From those, you can post your parts for sale at a reasonable price. If you mark it high, put “or best offer” as an option and you may get someone to produce a logical bid.
#trade in your car
The week’s most interesting and impactful posts about financial lifestyle.
A reader writes in describing a debate she s having with her husband:
I m not sure but someplace on your site I think I saw something about how often to trade in your old car. Our SUV is a 2005 with 55,000 miles on it. My husband says its time to trade it in. He says the longer we drive it the worse off we will be. I m not so sure. We will pay cash for the difference if we trade. Can you give us any pointers?
The husband s philosophy, if I understand it correctly, is that the older a car is, the less trade-in value it will have and that s absolutely correct. An older vehicle will have less trade-in value.
But let s look at some real numbers. Let s look at the trade value of Dodge Durangos (they have a SUV, after all) from 1998 to 2006 and assume the median of the range given.
A new midrange 2008 Dodge Durango, according to AOL Autos, costs $31,835. Let s just assume this is the price one would have paid in earlier years for a Durango. It may have been less, but probably not significantly so.
A 2006 Dodge Durango would have been owned for 24 months and would have a cash value of $18,225. This is a total depreciation of $13,610, or $567 a month for the entire time of ownership.
A 2005 Dodge Durango would have been owned for 36 months and would have a cash value of $14,062.50. This is a total depreciation of $17,772.50, or $493 a month for the entire time of ownership. Over that last twelve month period, the vehicle only depreciated $4,162.50 or $347 a month.
Let s keep going for two more years so the picture becomes clearer. A 2004 Dodge Durango would have been owned for 48 months and would have a cash value of $12,500. This is a total depreciation of $19,335, or $402 a month. Even more impressive, over that last twelve month period, the vehicle only depreciated $1,562.50 or $130 a month.
A 2003 Dodge Durango would have been owned for 60 months and would have a cash value of $10,512.50. This is a total depreciation of $21,322.50, or $355 a month. Again, over that last twelve month period, the vehicle only depreciated $1,987.50 or $166 a month.
What s the meaning of this data? The longer you hold onto a car, the less it depreciates each year, and thus the more cost-effective it becomes. A 2003 Durango has a trade value much less than a 2006 Durango, but if you break it down into the depreciation per month, the person owning the 2003 Durango lost much less money per month than the owner of the 2006 Durango.
Another thing to notice is that car depreciation is at its worst during the first few years of owning a car. Thus, to maximize the bang for your buck, your best bet is to buy a model three or four years old. That way, it doesn t depreciate thousands of dollars each year you own it.
What s the conclusion? The best value in cars is buying a late model used and driving it until the repair bills start seriously racking up. This plan minimizes the per-year cost of your car and gives you the most years of cost-effective reliability. If you insist on buying new (not the best move), the more years you drive your older car, the more cost-effective your purchase becomes.
Upgrading a three year old car to a new model is not cost-effective in any real way the only advantage it provides you is the prestige of constantly having a new car at the cost of many hundreds of dollars a month versus using a more cost-effective method of getting around.

Whitesville, WV –
A physically disabled woman from Boone County, WV said a man took advantage of her trusting nature and took her car without paying.
Now she is left with no car and no way to get to her many doctor’s appointments.
I had posted an ad on Craigslist and Facebook, Marian Webb said.
She needed to sell her beloved 2005 Monte Carlo. The transmission was out so she posted it for parts only. The plan was to use the money to get a used Blazer so that she could get around in the winter.
A man came to look at the car. Webb agreed to let him make two payments of $500 each. They were due November 1 and December 1 last year. She has not received any money.
A handshake is your word you go on that handshake, Webb said.
She even had the man sign a paper detailing the terms of the agreement. Webb, her son and her nephew signed the same paper saying they witnessed the conversation.
I haven’t got a dime from him and I am the one suffering.
Webb still doesn’t have a car or any way to get around. Surgery on her back and neck make it very difficult for her to walk.
I want him to know that what he has done to me. He’s made me feel like I have to live in prison because I can’t go anywhere. I just hope he doesn’t do this to anyone else, Webb said.
She said she reported the incident to the Whitesville Police Department. Webb said the man who took the car said he lived in St.Albans, WV at the time. She has his phone number and called him frequently to ask for payment. The number has since been disconnected.
Captain James Agee with the St. Albans Police Department said when it comes to selling a vehicle to someone you don’t know:
*Deal only in cash
*Meet in a public place like a fast food restaurant, convenience store or the parking lot of a law enforcement agency where there are cameras present
*Do not make payment plans
When asked if she would do things differently looking back Webb said Probably not because I have a heart of gold. I’d help anyone I could.
If found guilty the person accused of taking Marian’s car without payment could be charged with obtaining under false pretenses.
Scuba diving offers an amazing opportunity to delve into the amazing aquatic life and view aquatic creatures in their natural habitats.
However, in order for you to enjoy life under water, you require a very good scuba mask .
The wrong scuba mask could turn your submerged trip into an irritating source of discomfort. I am going to walk you through what to look for in a good scuba mask.
There are several design components that you should keep in mind while acquiring a scuba mask.
The first design feature to look out for is the number of lenses or windows which will make up the scuba masks’ viewing area.
Single window scuba mask consists of one large viewing area at the front. Dual window masks have separate lenses for each eye.
Triple window masks have one large lens in front just like the single masks but they have two additional ones on the sides to enable the diver to view the periphery.
Experience has revealed that the more the lenses do not always translate to a better view.
Side windows may be a source of distraction, especially when diving in shallow waters on a sunny day.
But if you intend to use corrective lenses you should go for two-window masks which many manufacturers have premade for different prescriptions.
The empty space that can be filled with air while wearing the mask is called the internal volume. A mask with a lower internal volume is preferable because of two reasons.
First, equalizing the mask is easier, masks with large internal volume will require you to add more air in order to equalize.
Secondly, a mask with a small volume holds less water meaning it takes less air to clear.
While purchasing a scuba mask you should put into consideration the material used to make them.
Some are made with silicone skirts and some are made from natural rubber.
If you are allergic to any of these materials, or just dislike it, then you should inform the seller.
Another factor to consider is the material used to make the lenses.
While plastic lenses may be more attractive due to their pocket friendliness they are prone to scratches and may considerably reduce your fun due to poor visibility.
Instead, go for the ones that are made from tempered glass.
Since every human being is uniquely and wonderfully made finding a mask that fits everyone is next to impossible. Your cheek bones nose shape and size will determine how a mask fits. Therefore, take your time while choosing one that you feel comfortable in
There may be other factors to consider depending on personal preferences such as the color of the mask and your budget. Whichever the case I hope you will get one that offers maximum enjoyment.
All my life I’ve always been one of those people who look like a starfish while sleeping. I couldn’t understand those telling me that they feel super uncomfortable sleeping on their stomach, until couple of months ago I started noticing, that the usual sleeping position is not comfortable anymore.
Suddenly my favorite sleeping time was not enjoyable anymore.
So I started looking for new sleeping positions, that will feel comfy and bring back nights when I used to get enough quality sleep time.
In a week or so I found myself falling asleep on my side.
After that, I was quite interested in how sleeping positions act on our health.
I started studying the topic and found out, that sleeping on your side can be very helpful. If you are suffering from snoring sleeping on your side can actually help you to decrease the frequency and also it’s very useful if you have back pains, as it elongates your spine which help the back pain disappear .
And as sleeping itself a very important phase in our daily life, I decided to make the most out of it and found things and tricks that will improve my sleeping even more.
First thing, that you usually stumble upon while reading about side sleeping side effects, is that because of having your face directly smushed on the pillow you can suffer from early aging. The solution for this is easier than you think. Just get a satin pillowcase.
It will prevent unwanted wrinkles.
It’s really that simple.
Another great thing that I found, actually one of my friends advised me to do it, is placing a pillow between my knees while sleeping. Not only this is one of the most comfortable things in the world, it also helps your hips to stay in balanced position preventing possible muscle pain.
And if are someone extra like me or you are new to side sleeping and find yourself turning on your back or stomach during the night, just take two extra pillows and place one of them as a support on your back and the other one on your stomach. Believe me, you’ll find yourself extra comfortable being all surrounded with soft pillows. Or if you like me, you can pick up one of the best pillows for side sleepers here .
So know when you’ve find out how to have the best and most health sleep in your life, just take those pillows and get into the position and have a good night and sweet dreams.
Whether you are trying indoor tanning for the first time in your life to get ready for a vacation or to keep your summer tan throughout the entire year, there are rules that should be followed.
These rules are vital for your safety and also for your health.
Numerous people visit tanning salons thinking that they don t present similar health risks as tanning in the sun.
While the risks are less, they are still there.
The traditional tanning salon relies on the use of a tanning bed to produce a tan for a customer. This process is known to open the body to the harmful UVA rays and can cause skin cancer. On the off chance that you are going to use this method of indoor tanning, use a good indoor tanning lotion with a SPF of at least 8, however not more than 15.
Because of the dangers of traditional indoor tanning, and the fact that people still want to maintain a tan all through the winter, the industry has invented a few answers.
Sunless tanning booths and sunless tanning products are the most popular decisions with consumers.
They are safe, look good and are effortlessly applied.
Sunless tanning booths operate by actually spraying a mist that contains DHA to create the illusion of a tan. DHA is similar color added substance that is used in cosmetics; it covers the body in a color-in this case a changing degree of tan. This type of tanning has had drawbacks when applying color to the feet and hands of a person, these issues have been tended to and is not a worry in most tanning salons.
A spray on tan does not keep going long, around 3-5 days.
Therefore, the tanning industry has built up various systems that permit you to perform this procedure in the solace of your home. These systems can be found in local stores and salons and in addition in lists and online.
Sunless tanning lotions first made their appearance on the market some time back. Everybody knows the reputation that these products had for leaving the skin orange rather than tan. These early products turned numerous consumers off to this alternative to sun tanning. Gratefully, the industry has been working on this specific issue and has understood it for the vast majority. Be careful, be that as it may, the less expensive lotions may at present turn skin orange.
Sunless tanning lotions work similarly as the spray tanners. They coat the skin with a DHA colouring. The greatest difference is that it is applied by hand and at home. It is important to carefully follow the greater part of the instructions for use that are printed on the package.
This important step will help you avoid elbows, feet and hands that seem darker than the rest of your body. This type of a tan endures about the same as the airbrush solution, around 3-5 days.
In any case, by applying a layer or two ordinary, you can build upon the tan that you are creating. In this manner, you can control how profound the colour of the tan becomes.
Indoor tanning is becoming a safer alternative to lying in the sun.
As the populace adapts more about the dangers of the sun, they are looking for their tan from safer methods.

great for what I needed Posted by: cordedtelephoneuser from: Indiana on This telephone was what I wanted. It is a phone with a cord and with an answering machine, caller ID and not too many extras to get in the way and go wrong. It was adaptable as a wall phone, too.

Nice unit Posted by: Bozo9 from: Tim Buck Too on The unit has a large, well lit display so I can quickly see the caller id from several feet away. Much better than most other units. Has many fancy features that are very easy to program. Every aspect of it is configurable. Comes with AC power adapter so I don’t have to fool with batteries. Speaker phone works well too. Finally ATT did something right.

Super simple product for elderly Posted by: Sinfonian1898 from: Roanoke, VA on I purchased this for my grandmother. She was in need of a phone with larger buttons and a new answering machine. It works exceptionally well. Sound quality is good and the buttons are easy for her to see. The only problem I have had with it so far is the menu system is a bit difficult to navigate. I am rather techy and can usually handle these types of things no problem, but I did have to refer to the instruction manual to get it set up. Once checking the manual though, it was a breeze.

Clear and precise for older users Posted by: dogmom56 from: Greater Los Angeles Area, CA on So far, I have been pleased with this purchase. I wish the display was lit up when there were missed calls. It doesn’t draw the attention when not lit. I love the loud ring and the choice to let it ring 5 times before the answer machine takes over. My elderly mother needs the extra time to get to the phone. Overall, the phone is straightforward enough for both of us.

Does the job! Posted by: krazybill from: Central Florida on I needed a phone with a reliable answering machine. This phone fills the bill. The sound quality is excellent on calls and messages. The keys are large and easy to read. that being said some of the commands used for some of the features of the phone should be learned from the manual as they can’t be figured out from the keyboard. I do feel this phone is a good value for the money and recommend it.

Great phone for the price. Posted by: DTwinbyCalStateLA from: Los Angeles, CA on I was looking for a home phone, but didn’t want to spend much. I found it and bought it. I bought it because of the price. It has caller ID and even lights up. The only thing is that it doesn’t announces the number ( has no voice). I couldn’t had made a better choice. Awesome phone for the price.

Excellent phone Posted by: KathyGRN from: NJ on I purchased this phone for my elderly parents. The large numbers are easy to see. The speaker phone allows the user to adjust the volume so my mother who uses hearing aids was able to hear well. There is a pre recorded message on the answering machine. My parents were very happy with the phone and I would recommend it for older adults or those who have difficulty with vision or hearing.

Hair gel is one of the oldest styling products around, and can be used to create styles that range from slicked-back to messy and spiky. Applying gel isn’t difficult, when you have your ideal hair style in mind. Whether you’re simply trying to tame your frizz, or you want to have a particularly dashing look for your next formal event, hair gel may become your new best friend.
Choose the right gel. Hair gels are usually categorized by the thickness of the compound and the power of the hold. The color and the scent of hair gels generally doesn’t make any difference in terms of how they work. Most gels are applied with the fingertips, but there are a few which are spray-on. Decide which is best for your style, or try out each one and see which you prefer.
Wash your hair to get started. Starting with a solid foundation of clean hair will make creating your gelled style much easier. Shampoo and condition your hair as per normal, and then use a towel to dry it until damp. It’s important to have damp hair when you apply gel, so don’t dry it thoroughly. If you’re short on time, dampening your hair in the sink is also a good option. 
Scoop out some of the gel. Put a small dab of hair gel onto your fingertips and rub your hands together to coat your hands evenly and rub it into your hair, as if it were shampoo. Depending on how thick and long your hair is, you’ll need to use an appropriate amount of be sure to spread it evenly across your fingertips. Remember, you can always add more, but it’s hard to get hair gel out of your hair without rewashing, so go easy:
Apply the gel. Style your hair according to the look you’re going for (as aforementioned). Generally, you should start with the gel just above your hairline, and work it back towards the crown of your head/nape of your neck. Use your fingers to apply the gel, and if desired, use a comb to better incorporate the gel afterwards.
Complete your style. Most hair gels contain alcohol which allows them to dry quickly. If yours does not, you’ll need to wait a few minutes for the gel to set. You can manipulate the gel while it’s wet, but once it dries it will become stiff and firm. When the gel has set, your look is finished and you’re ready to show off your new hair! 
Try a messy and informal look. Gel is the best go-to hair product for creating that messy-yet-sophisticated look with your hair. This is great for days when you want to look casual yet put-together, and don’t have much time to style your hair.
Try a simple part. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time on your hair and are just looking for a way to keep it in place, gel is a good option. The idea with this style is that you make your hair look as natural as possible, parting it along it’s natural line, but without risking frizz and a cowlick as the day goes on that would come from simply combing.
Go for a classic slicked-back look. Few things are as sophisticated as a slicked-back hair style reminiscent of Don Draper, Pat Riley, or Jay Gatsby. This type of hairstyle looks classy and simple. This look is best for special occasions and formal settings, and can be achieved with a heavy amount of gel and a fine-tooth comb.
Try spiking your hair. If you’ve always dreamt of rockstar spiked hair, you can easily recreate the look with some of your favorite hair gel. Although this style is generally only appropriate for casual settings (don’t wear it on a first date) it can be a fun change of pace.
Try a pompadour. You know you want to. Channel your inner Elvis Presley and Conan O’Brien with this almost over-the-top rockabilly style. It’s maybe the most challenging to style and to pull off, but it’s basically a combination of some of the above techniques. Even if you just try it while you’re sitting around the house one day, it’s something to cross off the bucket list.
