Most people really enjoy Halloween, and what could be more fun than a Halloween party? Let DealDash help!
If you’ve ever had a Halloween party for your kids, or even for yourself you know that there are ton and tons of great ideas out there to make your party special. From outdoor decorations to indoor food preparation DealDash has you covered. Let’s take a look at a few ideas to help make your Halloween party a smash.
First, you should definitely decorate your house. Not just a few pumpkins (though you should definitely have those), but how about some awesomely scary lawn decorations? If you check out the Home, Garden, and Tools section on DealDash you can find a great selection of different scary items for the outside of your house such as a ghostly rider on a horse, an inflatable stack of giant Jack o’lanterns, and spiders galore! Some of the spider decorations are functional, such as the spider lawn & leaf bag holds your yard waste, while the over-sized LED spider can give you a little extra light on a dim pathway. Decorating your lawn for your party is not only very festive, but it can also help your guests identify exactly where the party is just in case they have never been to your house to visit.
Every single party that I have ever been to has always offered food of some sort, from snacks to a full meal. If you need any new food prep items check out DealDash’s Kitchen & Dining section. If you’re planning on making a cake for your party, how about cupcakes instead? DealDash has an adorable Halloween cupcake making set that would be just perfect for a kid’s party. If you’re looking for more of a scary themed party for adults then you should check out the gelatin mold in the shape of a brain! It’s super scary. DealDash also has other items that would be great for any age such as not-too-scary skeleton plates.
If you’re hosting a party for kids, how about some entertainment playing in the background in case the kids have had enough partying a need a little downtime? DealDash has some great DVD and Blu-Ray titles that would fit in with the theme such as Spongebob Halloween. If your little guests are more into books than videos, then Daniel Tiger’s Halloween book will keep them occupied.
I hope that you have a great time planning your Halloween party and that it’s a great and scary success. Always remember, before you shop anywhere else for party supplies check out DealDash first, you might be surprised at all of the awesome party things that you can win or BIN. Good luck and happy bidding everyone.
It’s almost the end of September, and we are quickly entering cold & flu season. Let’s check our bathrooms and make sure that we have everything we need.
The first item I think that you should have in your sickroom supplies is a thermometer. Otherwise how will you know how sick (or not) you really are? I personally won a really awesome talking thermometer from DealDash a while back. It’s the best thermometer that I have ever had because it will give you a temperature reading in less than 10 seconds, and you can take your temperature in the dark because it announces the temperature when it’s done. DealDash also has forehead thermometers, which are great for taking a child’s temperature even when they are sleeping.
Another great item to stock your sick supplies with is tissues. Every sick person needs tissues, when I’m sick I go through a box very quickly. DealDash has tissues up for bid pretty frequently, almost always in bulk. These particular tissues have gone for as little as ONE penny!
Heating pads are a great staple to have in your sickroom supplies also. They are great if you have an ear ache, or just have the chills from being sick and need a little extra warmth.
The last item that absolutely every person needs for their sickroom supplies is a humidifier. There are a few different kinds of humidifier, the main two options being either COLD or WARM mist. They both do essentially the same thing – spout out a mist into the air that has great benefits such as relieving the discomforts of nasal congestion, dry itchy skin, chapped lips, and dry throat. Cool mist humidifiers tend to be less expensive to buy and operate. If your humidifier will be going into a small child’s room be sure to buy a cool mist rather than warm, as sometimes the steam can burn you if you get too close. Warm mist humidifiers are a great choice for someone who is chilled easily, as they raise the room temperature slightly when in use.

After hosting my daughter’s 4 year old birthday party this past weekend I was amazed at how many ways DealDash helped me.
Planning a birthday party can be such hard work! However, when you see all of the party-goers having a great time, especially the birthday person it makes it all worth it. Let’s take a quick peek at how many ways that DealDash made my life a little easier when I was making the party preparations.
Food preparations were number one on my list, and so many of the small appliances and kitchen-ware that I used to prepare and store the food originally came from DealDash. The pots & pans set that I got from DealDash about 6 months ago was definitely an integral part of the food preparations, but even smaller things such as my bamboo cooking utensils and food storage set all played their part in making my party a success. If you are in need of anything in and around the kitchen check out DealDash’s Kitchen & Appliances section.
Another item that I got from DealDash that was absolutely a necessity for my party was my portable centerfold table. All of my normal table space was taken up by happy party-goers, so I tossed a disposable table cloth onto my portable centerfold table and it made a great buffet table to keep all of the big dishes and bowls of food on so people could come serve themselves. Speaking of tables, I had a few tiny guests that were too small to sit at my regular dining table or on a bar stool at my island, so I brought out my kid’s table & chair set and there was room for everyone, and no one got any “boo-boos” from falling off of a chair that was too big for them. If you’re looking for some inexpensive furniture that you can keep in storage until you need it, try browsing the Home & Office category on DealDash.
Since this was a 4 year old’s birthday party, I’m sure that you can guess the last DealDash section that I am going to mention…The Toys, Kids, & Baby section, of course! I was able to get my daughter a bunch of great toys that she was so excited to open and made her birthday extra special. My daughter absolutely loves all of the awesome things that I get her on DealDash, but I had saved some of her favorite characters for her birthday. Thanks for making her birthday great, DealDash!
Everyone needs basic supplies in their home – toilet paper, tissues, dish soap, etc. Why not get them at DealDash?
One of the most important thing to have stocked up in your pantry is something 99.9% of people use every day – toilet paper! I know that some people buy it as it runs out, but it’s really so much more cost effective to buy (or win!) in bulk. Also, just about everyone knows that sinking feeling when you have run out of toilet paper and really need some badly. Why use rough scratchy napkins or paper towels until you can get to the store? Just get it in bulk and be prepared! DealDash often has auctions for toilet paper. Some of the auctions have ended for an extremely low price – Take this 24 double-roll pack of toilet paper, which is frequently up for auction. It’s sold for a final auction value as low as .89! Now that’s savings!
Another great item to stock your pantry with is tissues. Almost everyone uses tissues, and if you have kids you probably go through a box every week or so. DealDash has tissues up for bid pretty frequently, almost always in bulk. These particular tissues have gone for as little as ONE penny!
The last item that I think you should stock up on is dish soap. No matter if you wash your dishes in the dishwasher or do them by hand, dish soap has an extremely long shelf life, and it just makes sense to stock up on dish soap at DealDash. This particular dish soap is frequently offered for bid on DealDash, and has sold for as little as .50.

Having good work habits in the office, or even the home office can benefit everyone.
Are you the type of person who can get to work and immediately get down to business? Or are you more like the rest of the population and need a little encouragement to get you going? Well, in this article I am going to try and share a little bit of what I have learned about having good work habits.
Keep your area neat and tidy – Keeping your desk space clean, neat, and orderly is very important for a few reasons. Namely, it’s much easier to have a clear and organized mind when your desk space is clean and ready for you to get to work. A great way to keep your desk neat and tidy is to get a desk organizer to hold all of your pens, post-it notes, and other small items.
Punctuality – Being on time for work (or even a little early) is a great trait for any employee to have. To be successful you should have already put your things away and gotten your coffee and be ready to sit down and work when you are due to start, not rushing in the door at the very last minute. This also applies to working at home, too. If you have the luxury of being able to work at home you should treat your home office with as much respect as you would treat a regular office, and keep regular hours.
Personality and Teamwork – Having a positive attitude and being willing to work as a team with your colleagues is a very important work habit to have. When you get to the office in the morning try and imagine yourself having a great day before it even starts. Try to greet your co-workers cheerfully and be willing to help out on projects. If you are able to achieve these feats then you are well on your way to having a great day at work.
