Move Out Day - What To Do With All Your Stuff


When it's time to move out of your dorm room or apartment, you will have to decide what you want to take with you and what you no longer need. You will probably want to get rid of  things like dorm room bedding and dishes. Determine what you want to do with the things you don't want any longer.

Sell on Ebay. Ebay.com is an excellent resource for making money from selling the items you no 

longer want. Be sure that your items are still in working order and in good condition. No one wants to pay good money for junk. Open an account on Ebay and post the items you want to sell. If you are unsure about how to word your ad or what to charge, check for comparable items on the website. Try and keep the selling time short so that you can get rid of your items as soon as possible.

Hold a Yard Sale. Get together with some of your college friends and hold a group yard sale. Some colleges provide the space for selling your items at the end of the year. Check with your campus events office to see if your college provides this service. If not, determine a location for your yard sale. Put up some posters to advertise your upcoming sale.

Make a Donation. Contact your local charity organization and check to see if they will take your donated articles. This strategy could be the easiest way to get rid of all of your extra belongings. Make a list of the items you are donating. You may be able to use your donation as a deduction when it comes time for paying your taxes.

Recycle Your Stuff. There are a number of online groups where you can post your items to be recycled. Consider becoming a member with freecycle.org. Where you can list all of the items you have. You will be surprised by number of people who will take your stuff.

So You're Gonna Be A College Athlete: How to Be a Champion On The Field & In The Classroom

Summer is halfway over. Soon, you're going to be starting college for real and playing a college sport for which a coach actually recruited you. Let's assume the sport is baseball. Let's further assume that you haven't been recruited to play at the University of Miami, Stanford, the University of Virginia or the winner of this year's College World Series . You're an above-average player and, according to the slots available and probabilities, you're probably in a NCAA Division III program. (Even if you're in a fairly big time Division I program, you might want to finish reading this article. A significant number of you guys get tired of being bench jockeys and transfer to D III's for playing time and the ability to be a stud player in a small pond.) Status Check - What the NCAA Calls You The NCAA refers to you as a " student athlete " in all its many publications, forms, notifications and rulebooks. The term is never

Adjustable Split King Beds: 2 Twin Extra-Long Size Beds Combined

On the surface, the answer to "What is a split king mattress?" may seem quite simple -- but there are several different types of split king beds to choose from. No matter what your budget or your particular circumstances, there is a split king that will suit you just perfectly. Why Are Split Kings Made?   A split king is made as a solution for comfortable sleeping for a couple. The bed is divided into two sections so that each person has their own customized side of the bed. This would allow for one person to have a firm mattress while the other person has a soft one, or for one person to have an electric blanket while the other one can sleep blissfully in the chilly night air that they prefer. Sometimes a split king is made for people with medical issues so that the person needing specific medical bedding -- like a bed that sits up and reclines automatically for example -- can have it on their own side but not on the side of the person who is not in need
