Locals Only: Looking for Consignors

Having a yard sale is a pain. Besides having to do the marketing you tie up your Saturday morning sitting in your drive way watching people dig through your things.

A local company, www.simpleresalefundraising.com, helps you make getting rid of your stuff easy and puts some extra cash in your pocket. Here is how it works:

1. Go through the items in your home. They are specifically looking for kid’s merchandise- clothes (up to size 14), toys, sports equipment, small furniture, baby items and maternity items.

2. Register to become a cosignor at www.simpleresale.com. You can pick the specific sale where you would like your items sold (there are two dates available on the site currently).

3. Tag all of your items with the sale price. You will receive 50% of what your items sell for. The other 50% is donated to the school hosting the sale.

4. Bring your items to the location of the sale a few days before and drop them off.

THAT’S IT!

After the sale, you can either choose to come and pick up your remaining items or have them donated. If you choose to donate, Simple Resale will deliver them for you and make sure you receive a receipt for tax purposes.

Within 48 hours after the sale, you can look on line and see how much money you made!

Within 5 days after the sale, you will receive your check for your portion of the sales, your receipt for tax purposes (if needed) and your donated inventory lists!

So if you have been trying to figure out what to do with the things your kids have outgrown but didn’t want to go through the hassle of trying to sell them yourself, this is a perfect opportunity to make some money!

Today is National Don’t Fry Day

The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention has designated the Friday before Memorial Day as “Don’t Fry Day” to raise awareness of skin cancer prevention and to encourage everyone to protect their skin as they head outdoors to kick off the summer season.

As someone who had a family member deal with skin cancer, I think this topic is extremely important. As we head into the summer months, it is vital people learn how to protect themselves!

To lend a hand Rite Aid is supplying it’s stores with a 12-page, full-color skin care guide beginning May 30th and online at www.riteaid.com. The guide covers a wide range of topics including:

* Daily skin care tips to prevent damage and fight wrinkles including the role of sunscreen, vitamin C serum, hydroxy acid, silicone, retinol and other products in a daily regimen

* Safe alternatives to tanning such as using the latest generation of natural-looking self-tanners that temporarily dye skin and can even serve as a base sunscreen

* Potentially life-saving tips to catch cancer early such as using the ABCDEs to be wary of moles that change asymmetry, borders, color, diameter or are otherwise evolving or changing

* The difference between UVA and UVB rays and how to best choose a sunscreen blocking both

* Diabetes-specific skin care

Rite Aid is further encouraging good skin care by offering shoppers a Single Check Rebate gift of a $10 store gift card with a $25 purchase of select skin care products or a $25 store gift card with a $50 purchase of select skin care products. A complete list of participating skin care products as well as all program restrictions are included in the June Single Check Rebate directory available at all Rite Aid stores.

Plus customers who use their wellness+ card with their qualifying skin care purchases will receive an additional $5 gift card.
