Tips That Help Extend Your Car's Life

Modern cars require relatively little routine service as long as you follow maintenance instructions both from car experts and in your owner's manual.
The following are some other tips to help you extend the life of your car.

Avoid driving over potholes which can cause suspension and tire damage. Shifting from reverse to a forward gear while car is moving can harm the transmission, while jackrabbit starts stress the engine, transmission and differential.
The bottom line? Drive smartly!

Exercise regularly everything on your vehicle such as using the parking brake occasionally to keep it adjusted; Engage your car's 4-wheel drive occasionally if you rarely use anything but 2-wheel drive.

Synthetic oils are superior lubricants which are more costly than petroleum-based oils but they can extend engine life. It's best to start using synthetic oil while the car's engine is still young.
Glance under your car from time to time. If there are fluid leaking on the ground, note the color of any drips and report them to your car mechanic. Report any weird squeaks and clunks in a timely manner as well.

Bond with a mechanic you can trust, and follow his/her advice.

You'll feel better hanging on to your car longer if it looks good. In addition to regular washing and waxing, or even better, professional detailing - your car, fix any inevitable dings and chipped glass before your car starts looking like a heap.
Most glass damage is easily repairable and small dings can be inexpensively fixed with paintless dent removal techniques.

Liven Up Your Bathroom!

Summer time means a lot of bathing! It is also the ideal time to do some real check on your bathroom. Perhaps it needs an upgrade ;). Or it needs additional bathroom fixtures.
Take time to check on any bath vanities your bathroom needs. You would never run out of choices which means you can get the best types of bath vanities that suit your taste.

I and my husband hve recently bought a new house in the Philippines and one of the most important part of the house we got prioritized was our bathroom. The house got 2 bathrooms, up and down and it takes time to get those perfect bath vanities that really fits in each bathroom.
My husband left me alone on how I would like it to be done including colors and matching accessories, so it means I should make smart and sound decisions with regards to all the items and colors I choose including bath vanities that it needs. It's kinda tough but I love doing it. :)

Actually, Superiorbath is one ideal site I can add to my list. I usually order online some bathroom fixtures and send it to the Philippines. It's because most of the things that I really want isn't available or it's either that it is difficult to find.
I still have one big box to fill up to send it to the Philippines. I've sent 2 boxes previously mostly for housing needs ;).

Gadget Shack Wireless Gadgets

Many home residents, business owners and other establishments use innovative and practical devices. For example one device that is commonly used today is the wireless wireless intercom system , which is a familiar sight in huge companies and offices of today. Even an ordinary residential home can also use an intercom system. No wonder why...it is because it really helps makes life easier for many, don't you agree? These systems allow people to communicate throughout the home between upstairs and downstairs, front yard and back yard. They can also be used as a monitoring system with a call box or wireless doorbell so you can identify callers at your door.

Because many of the intercom units you see are wireless they are easy to use and very little installation is required. They are also now very inexpensive so it is easy for the everyday homeowner to have such an item in their home.

Another popular device is the wireless doorbell which again can be installed in minutes with no complicated wiring.

Beds For Kids

Wood bunk bed designs are still considered a pioneer choice by most parents of today. I still remember when I was a kid, and slept in a wooden bunk bed on top ;). That was when we visited cousins in the province and they used to have bunk beds to save space. It was actually good sleeping on it because it was cool.

Bunk beds for sale are also a great time to find one with their best prices and you can get the chance of choosing the perfect designs you want for your kids. Or better yet, let your kids choose ;). That would be fun! You can shop them online at Mom's bunk House.
Bunk beds for kids in here are made up solid wood components that is long lasting and made with classic designs that won't go out of style. Plus, you can get free shipping as well.

Bunk beds are perfect as space savers. I am actually planning to have one in my guest room. It's kind of exciting because I have a new room extension being constructed, so it could be wider in space just perfect for 2 bunk beds in it. I don't have kids, but I have nephews and nieces who would always love to visit every now and then. It's fun seeing them around and can sleep comfortably in the new room.
That's one thing I always look forward to every time I go home for a vacation.

Top Cruising Myths To Watch For

When it comes to saving money for a cruise, there are lots of misinformation out there. You need to know the following myths to avoid overspending in the end.

Myth #1: The lowest prices are online.
Better values can actually be through travel agents who specialize in cruises because they often receive advance notice of unadvertised deals you won't find online. Agents can help you get extras, such as onboard credit for purchases and free shore excursions and drinks.

Myth # 2: Booking last minute for bigger discounts.
It's a wrong approach. If you book early, you'll get the best airfare, choice of cabin and discounts.

Myth # 3: You won't spend much time in your cabin, so get the cheapest one.
The price difference between a tiny, inside cabin and a larger one with an ocean view maybe minimal, but the choice can have significant impact on your trip.
Beware of outside cabins that have an "obstructed" view; you might find your window blocked by a lifeboat.

Myth #4: Cruises are all-inclusive.
On most ships (except luxury lines), your out-of-pocket cost for bottled water, wine and dinner, drinks at the bar and shore excursions can add up, but airfare is rarely included. Ship restaurants do usually charge an extra fee. Housekeeping tips can go around $10 per person daily.

Myth # 5: A low-price cruise is a better deal than a luxury cruise.
Luxury cruise like Regent Seven Seas Cruises maybe charging more than most lines from $450-$650 per person a day, - but for realistic comparison, factor in the price of a suite on a mid-range line plus out-of-pocket on board costs, fees, airfare and surcharges.
Also, Regent includes most liquor and wines, shipboard gratuities, unlimited shore excursions, round-trip airfare, and two-for-one deals.

Unlimited Checks Online

When you order checks online, be sure it is a check printing company that are credible and not ending in the wrong hands of some unscrupulous online retailers.
On the other hand, getting your checks online can be much more affordable than getting them from your bank, and all you get is just a plain boring design. Besides, banks usually has very limited choice of designs. As I have said, as long as you order it online from a credible check printing company, you are safe! Try visiting Pure Checks and you can have hundreds of designs in there.

Most common needs are the usual personal checks by many customers. With just $5.99 per box of checks, you are still still having a quality value checks and get choices of colorful designs that you really want. If you prefer simple plain color designs, they still have them for you.

If you need other types of checks aside from personal checks, they also have business checks, computer checks and deskset checks.
Where else can you get the choice of at least 1,000+ designs?

Don't worry about your security because at Pure Checks, they have the necessary standards and requirements that are set by banks and the federal government which includes the Check21 and the ABA. In short, there is always a guaranteed security upon ordering your checks. No check frauds or whatsoever...

Swimmer!

Thanks to Wm Rowe

Swimming has always been a passion of mine so I knew when we decided to build our dream house that I wanted it to have a pool. We designed it long enough that I could swim laps but it still has a great shape so it doesn’t look too professional in the backyard and I use it every morning to get ready for the day! My husband decided if I got all this great space in the backyard that he wanted something, too, so I agreed to help him design a built-in barbeque area to use when we had friends over. It’s really great and there’s even a plasma TV with ExpertSatellite.com satellite so he and his buddies can watch all the big games! It was an easy compromise for me since I get my exercise in and he gets to hang out with his buddies – building our dream house has given me more pleasure than I ever thought it would and I’m so glad we spent so much effort and time on the outdoor areas of the home!

Keeping Your Airfare In Check

If you get stuck paying a lot for your tickets, keep checking fares and watch for price drops. Sign up at yapta.com which keeps track of prices and airline policies.
Also, try buying tickets at least 21 days earlier to get the best price. Try checking bing.com's airfare predictor which helps you whether you should snap up a ticket or wait.

Sometimes, you can get lowest fares on an airline's website, and sometimes at Kayak or Expedia which locate fares from a combination of carriers.

Check flights that depart on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday when fares are generally at their lowest. Take note as well that on many routes, travelers pay a premium for round trips that don't include a Saturday.

If your trip don't allow a Saturday stay over, consider one-way tickets and try buying 2 one-way tickets from low-cost carriers like Southwest or Jet Blue which don't require round-trip purchases to access the lowest prices.
Check for alternate airports where in some areas, a discount airline may not have any routes to the major airport, so try checking for a smaller one in the area.

Sign-up for emails from your preferred airlines and get access for special deals.
Check farecompare.com which scans airline data and sends alerts for your favorite cities, while airfarewatchdog.com has experts hunting for good deals.

All Weather Protection Covers

I would always recommend having patio furniture covers if you have furniture outdoors. In my case, I used to have a coffee table set in my back porch, but since I don't even use it now, I just decided to remove it. The set was still good because it had covers every winter and if summer comes where heat becomes unbearable, I always put covers on them. It has been quite a while since I gave them away for donations. I just thought there are still others who need it more than me, so it feels good to give some help as well.

Do you have RV at home? For those who have RV's, I also recommend getting Rv covers for protection. An RV owner will for sure get one knowing that we have various types of seasons to go through every year, particularly winter season.
Rv covers are great help for us when it comes to protecting our own vehicle. Nowadays, RV damages and repairs are very expensive to shell out especially when we are tight with our budget, don't you think?

Get one today before it is too late! You don't have to drive to your store. Just check Cover Bonanza online and take it from there. You might be able to see some more featured products that you need for other purposes. Who know? ;).

Fencing Solutions

Today, when it comes to horse fencing, it should be well designed metal fencing solutions that can last for a while. It means it should be made with top quality, high durability, has sustainable strength and eco-friendly as well.

Obviously enough, one who needs a horse fence would always prefer one that are made of metals such as Buckley's steel board and Alumashield fences from Buckley Fence, because they look beautiful and makes a great first impression.
Besides, steel horse fencing is much better and stronger than wood without worrying about protruding nails or screws which can pose a high risk of danger for horses.
Buckley's horse fences are made of smooth, rounded surfaces with rails that gives protection for the horse for any hard impacts and can act as a spring for cushioning. They are as well unbreakable and won't either sag or warp.

The Steel Board fence can still be looking like the traditional horse fence made of wood, only that it was designed much and way better for today's modern fencing solution.

You also have to consider horse fences that are made of environmentally friendly materials and are 100% recyclable, the reason why they are the best possibly quality combining all those mentioned features.

Indeed, Buckley Fence has the new standard of designing a true unique horse fence!

Money-Saving Tips For Cruisers

Get to plan your own shore excursions and you can save big. Ask your agent or search destinations online.
Caveat: If you're late in returning, the ship is unlikely to wait for you.

Rates are lower when you book spa treatments during port visits. You can also grab discounts if you wait to book last-minute, once on board, though availability may be limited.

You can save money buying trip insurance (usually about 4-10% of the total trip cost) should you become unable to travel. Be sure the trip-cancellation provision includes non medical reasons.

What's Your Fashion Jewelry?

For many women and men alike, signature fashion jewelry is always good to have! But being practical nowadays is the best thing to do if we want to be a wise spender.

Having a fashion jewelry doesn't always have to be expensive, and we don't have to sacrifice our hard-earned money to spend for those where in fact we have some quality choices to buy them without the "designer price".

That's the most ideal place to go to if you are into jewelry business or just want to get them for your personal use.

Getting Great Travel Deals

Don't stop asking for breaks. Before you leave for your trip, search online for current car and hotel rates. If they're lower than what you have, call and ask for that rate.
When you're at the hotel/car place, tell the clerk if you're in a trip for a special occasion like anniversary or birthday, then ask if there's a chance for an upgrade.

If the hotel won't dole out upgrades, they would always be willing to offer up amenities like breakfast or valet parking. So, keep asking ;).

Be nice and kind and you'll never know what kindness can get you. Who knows, you can even get an upgrade for that.

Complain nicely, and at times you can get either an upgrade, a discount and a special rate! :).
