What to do with Your Old Car

 

Hey neighbors!!

Is anyone considering a new vehicle for the holidays?  If so, what are you planning on doing with your present vehicle?  We recently sold our Equinox through a local ad and upgraded, sort of, to a Ford Explorer which we purchased from an individual.  The Explorer was a couple years older, but it has more room, and even a dash to place my camera.  Our Equinox did not have much of a dashboard.

Our son had a junker sitting in his garage and the vehicle he was using as an everyday car.  He decided to upgrade and went to a dealer and traded both vehicles in on his Mazda.  He is pretty happy with the new car and trading in, rather than selling, worked better for him.


A close friend of ours drove his mini-van until it was literally falling apart.  He found a new mini van at a used car dealership and purchased it outright.  Presently the other vehicle is still sitting in his driveway waiting for him to decide what to do.  He has talked about keeping it and using it for toting lumber and such when he is working on one of his projects so he won't damage his new van.  He has also considered turning it in to a junkyard for cash.  Either way, he definitely got his use out of this vehicle.

Some other ways to dispose of an older vehicle would be to donate it to a charity. Often times if they can't use the vehicle, they can sell it to raise funds.  If you know of a ministry that could assist you in giving the vehicle to a family in need, that might be an option at this time of year.  

Thanks for stopping by today, where neighbors share.  If you have any other ideas, please share them in the comments.

SCEN-TIES Perfect Stocking Stuffer for Girls



Greetings from the cold state of Illinois!!

Would you believe we have already had snow? About 3-4 inches between Monday and Thursday and it still is not gone.  Anyway, that means it is the perfect time to share another product for our Holiday Gift Guide!!  So glad that our fence is online and not outside in this chilly weather.  So, we have what might be considered for young girls, but I would almost guarantee teenage girls will like them too.  They are SCEN-TIES!!  Scented hair ties!  Remember the old scratch and sniff stickers? Well, these are stretch and sniff hair elastics!  My daughter thought they were great, as well as some other young girls we shared them with.  Not only do they have the hair ties, but they have scented headbands as well.



The SCEN-TIES come in Brownie Sundae, Bubblegum, Cotton Candy, Cupcake, Sour Apple, Strawberry and Watermelon.  The headbands are available in Cotton Candy, Cupcake and Strawberry.  What little girl doesn't LOVE having scented items to wear?  And of course many girls today wear the hair ties on their wrist like a bracelet.  Now she can wear several scented hair ties and swap them out with her friends.



 The SCEN-TIES come 5 in a pack for $5.99 and the headbands are 3 in a pack for $12.00. They are a great gift idea for your daughter's friends and they can then trade different scents with each other.  Also perfect to create a hair care gift basket for that young lady.  Add some SCEN-TIES both hair ties and headbands, toss in a brush or comb, maybe a few hair care products like a scented shampoo and conditioner and perhaps a cute stuffed animal and you are good to go!

Subarz Holiday Snacking

Hi neighbors!!

Subarz are a great gift idea, but they are also perfect for relaxing in the evening after a day of shopping and busyness.   Grab your favorite flavor with a cup of coffee or hot tea and enjoy!!


Needless to say, the Subarz did not last long in the house.  We actually shared them with a friend after dinner one evening and one of my daughters made sure to hide a couple so she could have them the next day.


The Chocolate Peppermint were a big hit.  They would also be perfect for a holiday get together!  We also received Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate Chip Almond, and Peanut Butter Delight.  I think the Peanut Butter Delight was the next favorite, but none of them lasted very long.  They sort of remind you of biscotti, but they are slightly softer, like a cookie.  At least compared to ones we have had.  




If you are looking for a nice hostess gift, a stocking stuffer for a dear friend, or you just enjoy a treat with your coffee or tea, be sure to visit the Subarz website and see all the flavors they have available and order a box or two!


From Daphne, the creator of Subarz: After perfecting that recipe, I knew it was time to create something unique, combining the flavor and texture of my mandelbread with the ease and popularity of a cookie or a bar. After spending hours in the kitchen and through trial and error with various ingredients and shapes, Subarz were created and were an instant hit.
