DealDash Tips to Be an Organized Bidder

DealDash Organized

Being organized on DealDash is a key element to being successful. If you’re a new bidder be sire to read these tips so you can start off ahead of the game.

When you first sign up to DealDash you need to get (and stay) organized. An organized bidder is a winning bidder. One of the first things that I would suggest that you do is make yourself an Excel spreadsheet. This spreadsheet will be useful for many things that I will tell you about later on in this article. The information will help you make educated decisions when bidding in DealDash auctions.

Keep Track of Bidders

One of the first things that you are going to want to keep track of on your Excel spreadsheet is bidder names. You’ll want to make a notation of any Power Bidders that you recognize, what they’re bidding on, and what price the auction ended up costing. This will be important information, you will eventually uncover different patterns in their bidding preferences and styles.

Keep Track of Auctions

Next, you’ll want to make a notation of the DealDash auctions that you enter. You’ll want to put the name of the auction and how many bids that you placed. You’ll also note the final auction price, and if you won or lost. Finally, you’ll want to note the time and date that the auction started and finished. This information will become useful in figuring out popular bidding days and times.

Your Wins and Competition

You’ll also want to keep a separate area with just your wins.  This will help you stay organized when bidding, and you can be sure that you aren’t “double buying” anything. It will also be helpful to note which bidders were your stiffest competition, and what dollar amount they dropped out at.

Your Budget

Don’t forget to write down every time you make a purchase of bids or BIN (Buy It Now) to help keep you on your budget. Sometimes it’s hard in the heat of bidding to not pay attention to how much you are spending. Keeping a list of bidding and BINning expenses will help you stick to your budget.

DealDash Winter Dates

Image result for winter date ideas

Winter is not typically a time that’s great for dating if you live somewhere that gets a lot of snow. Here are some indoor and outdoor date ideas from DealDash.

Burrrrrr! Who wants to leave the house when it’s cold and snowy outside? Well, if you’ve got a hot date, maybe it will motivate you to take off those fuzzy slippers and put on some boots instead. DealDash has some fun and relatively inexpensive winter date ideas.

Ice Skating

I’m personally not a fan of ice skating, but lots of people love it! If you look at the happy couple above you can see that they are having a lot of fun out on the ice even though they might not be the best skaters. There’s a learning curve to ice skating, maybe you could challenge your date to learn how to ice skate well by the end of the winter.

Movies

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years are all times when great new movies usually come out. Get your fill of popcorn and romantic comedies at the movie theater this winter. Pro tip: Check the theaters near you, any theaters have discounted evening movies on Tuesdays or Wednesdays during the week.

Tubing

Tubing is the grown-up version of sledding down a hill. Normally you trudge up a giant hill with your tube in hand, similar to the water-tubing rides at the water park in the summer. It’s a lot of fun and doesn’t require a lot of skill like skiing or snowboarding does.

Make Cookies

Cookies aren’t just for Christmas! Get out that KitchenAid stand mixer and whip up some delicious cookies with your date. And even better, the second part of the date is eating the cookies! If you’re not much for cookies, how about pie instead? The first crops of strawberries and blueberries seem to be arriving at the supermarket right about now, get some and make a delicious pie.

Hockey Game

There’s no more appropriate sport for winter than hockey. Get out there and show some team spirit and go see a hockey game on your date. Do matching face paint for bonus couple’s points!

I hope that you found these winter date ideas from DealDash fun! For winter snow removal tools such as shovels, scrapers, and snow blowers check DealDash first. DealDash has everything you need.

DealDash Loves Kittens

DealDash Kitten

Kittens! Who doesn’t love kittens! DealDash loves all animals, but kittens are extra special.

When you ask what someone’s favorite animal is, cat is the overwhelming response. Everyone from little children to seniors love cats and kittens. Here are some fun and interesting cat facts from DealDash.

Fun Cat Facts

Cats are the most popular pet in the United States: There are 88 million pet cats and 74 million dogs.

Cats sleep 70% of their lives.

Owning a cat can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by a third. If that’s not a great reason to adopt a cat, I don’t know what is!

The world’s largest cat measured 48.5 inches long. That’s over 4 feet long!!

The world’s richest cat is worth $13 million after his human passed away and left her fortune to him.

A cat has five toes on his front paws, and four on the back, unless he’s a polydactyl. Polydactyl cats are also referred to as “Hemingway cats” because the author was so fond of them. There are 45 Hemingway cats living at the author’s former home in Key West, FL.

A cat’s nose is ridged with a unique pattern, just like a human fingerprint.

Black cats are bad luck in the United States, but they are good luck in the United Kingdom and Australia. Sadly, these cats are the ones that are most frequently surrendered to the animal shelter and the least often adopted.

The largest litter of kittens produced 19 kittens. That poor Mama Cat!

If you want to adopt a cat, you can visit your local Humane Society or check out petfinder.com.

What Do They Need?

A cat really needs very few items. A food and water dish, a bed, a litter box, toys, and a bed or blanket is all they really need to be happy. Combine that with vaccinations and visits to the vet, and you will have one healthy, happy, long-lived companion.

Luckily, DealDash can provide quite a few things on that list. DealDash often offers food/water dishes, pet beds, and even automatic litter boxes for auction. The pet item auctions on DealDash are always very popular, so be sure to set your BidBuddy! Vist DealDash for all of your pet’s needs. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

DealDash Presents: Christmas Memories

christmas

What’s your favorite Christmas memory? Today we will explore Christmases gone by with DealDash.

Everyone (who celebrates) has a favorite Christmas memory. My personal favorite is from when I was about 4 years old. On Christmas Eve my parents told me that my Dad was going over to see some other family and wouldn’t be back that night. My mom and I stayed up “really late” to try to catch a glimpse of Santa. Looking back, it was probably only 10 o’clock or so, but to my 4-year-old self, it felt like the dead of night. We hear something at the door…And in came Santa! We hid behind a couch and watched him fill the stockings and put the presents under the tree.

What a wonderful memory. I must not have noticed at the time that Santa was looking rather skinny that year, and arrived on a motorcycle instead of a sleigh. It’s still my favorite Christmas memory. What’s your favorite holiday memory? Feel free to comment down below.

Going back a little further than 1984, if you look at history web sites, you can read about many wonderful old Christmas traditions. If we look back, Christmas, as we know it with the decorated tree, cards, and caroling, started back in Victorian times. At the beginning of the Victorian period families were more likely to give each other presents to celebrate the New Year than at Christmas. However, as time went on, the gift-giving was moved up to Christmas. The presents weren’t anything lavish or amazing. They were more likely to be nuts, fruits such as oranges, and things that were crafted at home.

We can partially credit Charles Dickens with making Christmas the celebration that it has become with Christmas traditions that we are all familiar with such as having a large Christmas dinner with the entire family and other activities that are focused on family togetherness. His delightful book, A Christmas Carol, was very popular in Victorian times, and it even influenced how Victorian families chose to spend their time during the Christmas season. Call me immature, but my favorite Christmas movie is the 1983 Disney cartoon Mickey’s Christmas Carol.

I hope that you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane. If you still haven’t completed your shopping list for Christmas gifts, be sure to check out DealDash.

DealDash has a Fun Email Trick

Image result for email Did you know that the first email was sent 45 years ago?! Here is a fun tip to get the most out of your email experience.

It’s true, the first email was sent by an engineer named engineer Raymond Tomlinson on Wednesday June 8th, 1971. Raymond Tomlinson has been credited with inventing email, and I’m sure that we are all grateful to him! Sadly, he passed away this past summer, but his email legacy lives on. Here is a fun tip that will ensure that your email will be read instead of ignored.

I was recently browsing my email inbox, and came upon a very fun email from my local craft store, and in it’s subject line was an emoji! Up until this point I had never seen (or maybe never noticed) any pictures in my email’s subject lines, and I was intrigued. After a little poking around I figured out how easy and simple it is to jazz up your email subject lines with pictures. Surprisingly, there is actually no trick at all! Just think of the emoji that you would like to use, find it with an internet search, and simply highlight it with your mouse, and cut (CTRL C) and paste (CTRL V)! Here are a few fun emoticons, you can cut and paste them right from this article!
