DealDash Helps You Relax and Pamper Yourself

DealDash

Sometimes you just need to pamper yourself and relax. It can turn a bad day into a great one. Read these suggestions from DealDash to help you pamper yourself and relax.

Man or woman, young or old, we all need to take some time for ourselves to relax. Sometimes knowing how to pamper yourself can be a little difficult to get started – especially if you are used to doing things for everyone else. Read these suggestions from DealDash and you’ll be feeling relaxed in no time.

Take Some Time to Do Nothing

First, are you feeling tired and run-down all the time? You probably aren’t getting enough rest, even if you are sleeping regular hours at night. If you’re awake from sun-up to sun-down working, taking care of your home and family, and other tasks you can get mentally tired. It’s important to take some time each day to just sit and do nothing. Some people call it meditating, some people call it daydreaming, and some people call it zoning out. No matter what you call it, be sure to take at least 15-30 minutes during your day to just sit and let your mind relax.

Take an Easy Hike

Next, taking an easy hike can really help you relax. Now, when someone says “hike” you might think about big backpacks and treks up the mountainside. My version of a hike is a leisurely walk through the woods. Now that we are coming into fall, it’s the perfect weather out to put on some jeans and a sweatshirt and take a relaxing hike on your local trail.

If you don’t know of any local hiking trails, not a problem. There is a great website that can help you find a trail (for free), by just typing in your location. You can also specify if you want to find a trail that’s good for hikes with your kids or dog. Find a trail at All Trails, just click this link right here. 

Pamper Yourself with DealDash Goodies

Finally, now that we have discussed a few ideas on how to relax, let’s get to the pampering! There are many ways to pamper yourself, of course, depending on your interests. However, a great place to start is the Fashion, Health, and Beauty category on DealDash. There you will find things like massagers, perfume and cologne, and other things to make you smile. Of course, DealDash has much more to offer. Come check out what’s up for bid right now

DealDash Welcomes Fall With Slow Cooker Dinners

DealDash

Fall is quickly approaching, and it’s a great time to get out your slow cooker. DealDash welcomes fall with these slow cooker tips.

If you have a slow cooker, you know that it’s a wonderful alternative to using the oven. There is no mystery on how to use it, but certain things can make it a better experience. Read these suggestions from DealDash to improve your experience in the kitchen.

Give Your Root Vegetables a Quick Microwave First

The first thing that you should keep in mind when you’re making a meal in a slow cooker is root vegetables take longer. This is not a problem if you are going to be home and can let the vegetables such as potatoes and carrots cook for an hour before you add in the other veggies and the meat. However, if you are leaving for the day and letting the slow cooker make dinner in your absence you will want to use this tip.

Cut up your root vegetables, then put them in a large microwave-safe bowl, and add enough water to cover the veggies. Microwave them for 5-6 minutes, drain them, then put them in the slow cooker. Then you can add in your meat and faster cooking vegetables such as celery, onions, and mushrooms.

A Few Tiny Tips

Next, there are quite a few small things you should remember if you want your dinner to come out perfectly. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Be sure that your meat is thawed before you begin cooking. Frozen meat can increase cooking time.
  • Open the lid as infrequently as possible. Opening the lid to add an ingredient is fine, but don’t take off the lid just to look at dinner’s progress. It can take a while to heat back up to the proper temperature.
  • Sear your meat first for a better flavor. Of course, you can just toss your meat into the slow cooker and it will turn out fine. However, if you want a really delicious flavor, sear it on all sides in a hot pan, first.
  • Use recipes. You don’t have to go it alone! There are thousands of recipes for the slow cooker online. Hidden Valley Ranch offers 27 free recipes at this link right here, you should give it a look – most of them sound really delicious like this Slow Cooker Ranch Chicken Fajitas.

Finally, if you’re in the market for your first (or a replacement) slow cooker, check DealDash first. You will find many excellent cooking items on DealDash. Take a look at all the slow cookers on DealDash. However, if you’re more in the mood to browse, the Kitchen and Dining category is a great place to start.

DealDash Presents: Setting Goals for Kids

DealDash

Kids who have goals have something to strive towards. Here are some tips on setting goals for kids, from DealDash.

This is going to be a difficult school year, with some kids going to school in-person, some learning at home, and some doing a hybrid model. However, it’s important that you should help your kids in setting some goals for themselves. Read these tips for ideas on setting goals for kids. Read on for more information from DealDash.

Don’t Set Unreasonable Goals

To begin with, it’s important to help your kids in setting reasonable goals. If you give your child some reasonable suggestions to choose from, it can make it easier for them. Don’t overwhelm them, just offer a few suggestions for them to think about. This way your child will be less frustrated in the process of setting and reaching their goals. By setting small goals at first your child will be able to achieve them and set slightly harder goals each time. This will build confidence and make them feel great about themselves.

Brainstorm on Paper

Next, even though many kids have computers and cell phones now, there’s just something about brainstorming on paper that helps you think. Also, physically writing the goals down gives your kid something to see to remind them what their goals are. You can give them a special notebook, or you can get a corkboard with pushpins, or even make a poster with them. After your kids set their goals and write them down, they can refer back to them and check them off when they have been accomplished. Brainstorming on paper can take a little practice at first. PBS Kids has a great article explaining how to teach your kids to brainstorm. Check it out right here.

Celebrate Accomplished Goals

Finally, once your child has accomplished their goal, it’s important to celebrate! This can be something as small as having a popsicle from the freezer or something as big as a trip out to their favorite restaurant. It all depends on how difficult the goal was, and how difficult it was for them to achieve it. Of course, accomplishing a goal is a reward on its own, but there’s nothing wrong with a little celebration sometimes!

DealDash Helps Your Kids Set Goals

There are a variety of items and tools that can help you in assisting your child to set goals. As I mentioned above, a pen and notebook are two things they will need. DealDash has both! You will find some nice pens in different colors on DealDash, as well as markers to help your kids get started. You will also find journals and other office supplies up for bid. Just click here to check out what is up for bid today.

Thanks for Reading

Setting goals can often seem like an adult thing to do, but even elementary school-aged kids can benefit greatly by setting goals for themselves. You will find that by helping your child learn to set goals they will continue to progress to more difficult ones over time.

Do you need pens, markers, or journals for your kids? You can get office supplies on DealDash. Be sure to check DealDash first before shopping elsewhere. Visit now and save. You’ll be happy that you did. Have a great time on DealDash everyone, and happy bidding!

Feeling Sluggish? DealDash Energy Tips

DealDash

Are you feeling a little sluggish lately? Help improve your energy with these suggestions and tips from DealDash.

As we move into the fall, it’s common to start feeling a little sluggish and run down. There are quite a few ways that you can feel more energized. Use these energy tips from DealDash to feel your best perky self. 

Energy Tip # 1 – Eat Healthy Meals

Firstly, if you are feeling sluggish, the easiest way you can feel more energetic is to cut down on junk food and eat healthy meals. This is the number one energy tip because it’s easy to do, good for your health, and should not add much (if any) to your budget. I know that junk food tastes good, and you don’t have to cut it out completely. Just cut it down to once a week instead of daily. 

Energy Tip #2 – Don’t Skimp on Sleep

Next, another easy suggestion is to get more sleep! If you have been surviving on 6 hours of sleep per night, you’re not sleeping enough! It’s no wonder that you are feeling sluggish if you aren’t getting enough hours of sleep per night. The Mayo Clinic has an excellent guide on how many hours of sleep per night each age group should get each night. Click here to see the guide for all age ranges. The amount of sleep an adult needs according to the guide is 7-9 hours per night.

If you decide to try this energy tip, DealDash can help. Having new bed linens, pillows, and comforters can help you sleep. Simply follow this link here and you can see a few of the bedroom and sleep items that you can win or BIN (Buy It Now). You can also browse the Home, Garden, and Tools category (here) and find other home items such as candles, paintings, and vases.

Energy Tip #3 – Get Help from Your Family

Finally, this might be an unexpected tip, but get some help! As a stay-at-home-mom with 3 kids, I find myself struggling with all of the cooking, cleaning, laundry, appointments, and everything else. Doing all of these things for 5 people (and 2 cats) can get very overwhelming. Ergo, I decided to distribute the tasks to the kids according to their abilities. At first, it felt like even more work to have the kids help. However, after showing them how to do the tasks a few times they were able to help. This has given me a huge energy boost, as well as being a great family bonding experience. No one likes to do the cleaning, so if we all do it together it will be done faster.

DealDash’s Grocery Shopping Tips

DealDash grocery store tips

Even if you are still spending most of your time at home, we all need to do grocery shopping. Use these tips from DealDash to have a better experience.

Unless you are ordering all of your groceries and having them delivered, you are still heading to the supermarket for grocery shopping. This can be an unpleasant experience sometimes, but there’s no need to worry. Just read these tips from DealDash to improve your experience.

Bring Your Own Wipes

Firstly, we all know that keeping things clean these days is very important. Also, we all have to still go grocery shopping. And in the beginning, there were typically employees at the front of the store wiping carts down. This doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. So if you would like to have a clean and sanitized shopping cart, you should bring your own wipes. Even if you don’t plan on wiping down your cart, you should bring a few wipes, anyway. They can be great for wiping down your hands after touching meat packages that always seem to be leaky. You can also use them at the end of your trip to wipe down your hands. There are no downsides to bringing along a few wipes, so just do it!

Don’t Forget Your Hand Sanitizer

Next, along with the wipes, you should bring your own hand sanitizer. Many stores lately have been asking you to use hand sanitizer on your way in the door. They usually provide free sanitizer to use, but personally, I dislike the plain/lemon/alcohol-scented sanitizer they offer. So I always bring my own sanitizer that I like and don’t mind the smell to linger on my hands. I just keep a clip on my purse that holds the sanitizer, but you can buy a key chain clip to hold sanitizer for just a couple of dollars.

Shop at Odd Hours

Finally, to have the best grocery store experience, I suggest going at odd hours. So instead of going grocery shopping at a convenient time, such as a weekend afternoon, try for a mid-afternoon on a weekday. There are many benefits to going shopping at odd hours, such as fewer other customers, no waiting in line outside to get in, and (possibly) more selection on the shelves. Did you know that you can easily see when your local stores are busy or deserted? Check out this article on the How to Geek website to find out how!

Shop at Home on DealDash

If you need to get some non-grocery items for your home, then it’s time to shop on DealDash! There are many different categories to choose from such as Electronics and Computers, Kitchen and Dining, and even Cars! There are lots of great reasons to shop on DealDash, such as fun and savings. However, in these times, one of the best reasons is free delivery, with no minimum! Just as an example, just the other day they sent me a new set of markers with free shipping. At most other places, I would have had to place an order of at least $35 to get free shipping.
