DealDash: Lifts Your Mood

Image result for mood liftingAre you feeling a little down lately? Maybe it’s the weather. Here are some mood-lifting ideas from DealDash. Feel better soon!

Is the cold dreary weather putting a damper on your mood? Or maybe you have a touch of Seasonal Affective Disorder? Maybe you are far away from your family and miss them around the holidays. Never fear, no matter what the problem is, DealDash has some helpful ideas to lift your mood and change your attitude.

If you’re the type of person who tends to be a little depressed or down about your circumstances lately, the best thing for you to do to lift your mood is to spend time with people you love that are cheerful. Emotions, both good and bad, are contagious. Wouldn’t you rather spend time with someone who is hopeful and excited about life? Yeah, me too. Your first step in changing your mood and attitude is to go figure out who in your life can be a positive and cheerful influence on you.

Another thing that you can do to lift your mood is to clean your house. Sure, it might not feel very fun at the time, but when you’re done you will definitely have a brighter outlook.

Along with cleaning up your home, clean up yourself! When I am feeling a little down I tend to wear PJs or baggy sweats all day. That’s just not a good idea! You should take a shower, fix your hair, and put on something that makes you look and feel great. If possible, try to wear something bright and cheerful. It will make you feel much better.

Did you know that scent correlates with your mood? If you’re feeling a bit down and would like to turn things around – try aromatherapy! Basil, Cypress, Lemon, Peppermint, and Rosemary are all scents that are known to be mood boosters. Or, if you prefer, you can buy pre-mixed essential oils that are blended for mood enhancement.

Lastly, there’s nothing like winning a DealDash auction to put you in a good mood in a hurry! Small or large, any win on DealDash is a big mood-booster. Visit DealDash now to check out the auctions. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Helps You Save Time

Image result for save timeEveryone these days is short on time. Let DealDash show you some shortcuts to save some time in your everyday life.

If you’re a busy person like most of us are, you could probably use some time-saving hints and tricks to use throughout your day to save you not only time but energy and effort as well. Even if you don’t feel like you are pressed for time, give these tricks a try anyway, you might find a new way of doing things. DealDash just wants to help you maximize your time.

Create a “1 cup per person per day” rule at your house. Assign each person in your house their own personal cup. The owner of that cup is responsible for washing their cup throughout the day if they want to change drinks, and also for washing it or putting it in the dishwasher at the end of the night. Kids age 5+ should be able to do these things, but you might have to help anyone that’s a bit younger.

Image result for laundry sorting

Are you tired of doing the laundry and then having to sort it out by family member? Assign each family member a laundry day. That way each person has a full day to get all of their laundry done, and there is no sorting between family members needed. I have always felt that sorting the clean laundry is the worst part – even worse than shoveling the dirty, stinky laundry into the washer.

Do you know someone who is having a birthday, graduating, or having another card-giving holiday? Send those babies out all at once on the first day or two of the month. That way, you won’t forget, and your card will even get there early!

I hope that you found some of these ideas helpful for your lifestyle. If you’d like to save time and money as well then be sure to check out DealDash. DealDash has everything you need to make your life easier. Visit DealDash now to check out the auctions. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash’s Online Shopping Ideas

Image result for online shoppingOf course DealDash would like you to come check out the auctions for this holiday shopping season, but they realize you will be shopping on multiple websites. Here are some online shopping hints for the season.

DealDash get it. DealDash understands that as much as you like their online auctions, you will be shopping in multiple places online and in store this year for Christmas. When you need something, check DealDash first, because you might be able to get a great deal – but if DealDash isn’t offering the particular item that you are looking for this year, here are some hints about online shopping this Christmas season.

The most important hint for this holiday season is to plan ahead. Don’t be one of those shoppers that waits until the very last second and then has to wait in long lines at the store, or pay for overnight shipping. Try to have all of your presents purchased, delivered, and wrapped two weeks before Christmas. That means that you need to hustle. Be sure to check DealDash first, here is a link to search the auctions.

Next, make sure that you make yourself a budget and stick to it! Decide before you start shopping how much that you are going to spend on each of the people on your shopping list, and then go shopping. You wouldn’t want to travel to a foreign city without a gps, and you don’t want to go shopping without a budget! It just makes good sense.

As mentioned above, make sure that you have a list. Make a list of everyone that you would like to get a gift for, the budget, and maybe also jot down a few ideas if what you think that they might like.

If you are getting gifts for multiple children that will be opening their gifts together such as siblings or cousins, try to keep the budgets for each child similar. It wouldn’t be a very nice experience for the kids if one child gets an Xbox One, and the other child gets a puzzle. If you would like to get one of the children something much nicer than the others, be sure to give them that gift privately so no one gets their feelings hurt on Christmas.

After you’ve made your lists and your budget, come check out DealDash. DealDash has awesome gifts for kids and adults. Visit DealDash now and see how much you can save. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!Image result for online shopping

DealDash’s Favorite Ways to Say Thanks

Image result for ways to say thank you

There are so many different ways to say “Thank you.” Here are a few for you to use.

If you normally just say “Thank you.” When someone does you a favor, or goes above and beyond for you, why not do something a little more special for them? They will appreciate it very much, and will make them even more likely to do other nice things for you in the future. Remember, it’s always nice to be nice!

One of the easiest ways to thank someone other than just saying it is to get them a card and write a special message inside. You can get a card that is specific to the reason that you are thanking the person, or a more generic one that you can write in the reason yourself. In fact, if you would like to be cost-effective and plan on sending lots of thank you notes, buy a multi-pack of blank cards and save them for the next time that you would like to send someone a thank you card.

If you would like to go above and beyond just a card, why not send them a gift card as a thank you. Luckily for you, our favorite auction website, DealDash, offers gift cards for auction! DealDash has gift card auctions every single day, and I have seen them go for pennies on the dollar. However, if you don’t happen to win you can always BIN (Buy It Now), and get all of your bids back, free shipping, and get to keep the clock time that you accrued while being the highest bidder.

Another great way to give someone a special thank you is to make them something – especially something sweet and delicious. Baking someone cookies or a cake is a wonderful way to say thank you. If you’re not the baking sort, picking up a dozen cookies or donuts at the bakery is always nice as well.

Finally, if the above ideas don’t appeal to you, how about winning a piece of art or jewelry as a thank you to your friend or family member? DealDash has a nice assortment of art, as well as necklaces, bracelets, and earrings up for auction. If you need a special thank you gift for someone, just click this link here to visit DealDash.
