When selling your stuff online, choosing to list on ebay or Craigslist, can be the difference between boom and bust. Here are a few tips to help you determine which site is best for your situation.
Before you list anything, consider three major factors. First, location, location, location. Ebay opens up your listing to a global market, which is perfect for antiques, rarities and the latest electronics. However, if you're selling items that are too big to ship, you should stick to Craigslist. Buyers can pick up large pieces themselves, which allows for a more seamless transaction.
Next, think about how quickly you want to turn your item from a listing into a payment. With eBay, unless you're lucky enough to get a "Buy It Now" buyer, you'll have to wait days for the auction to end before the sale can be completed. If you want your money quickly, Craigslist is the better choice for a fast turn around.
Finally, and most importantly, consider your payment options. Ebay sales are usually settled through PayPal accounts, and since the site takes a small fee per auction, items with smaller price tags may not be worth it. With Craigslist sales, though, you can generally request a cash payment on the spot, which means no lost fees.
Back in 2007, I met "Mike". He just opened an eBay store. I asked him why someone would use his store when they could do it themselves. I believe his answer was along the lines of a time saver - they drop item off, come back and collect their money.
I showed him my site. How I do income streams from home, get freebies delivered to my mailbox, and use an established investment method. Even if he didn't want to join my programs or order my seminars, his wife could have.
So last Friday I drove by the store and see that besides eBay, the store buys and sells gold and silver.
"Mike" is long gone, choosing to go from job to job, career to career based on his LinkedIn profile. Probably fighting traffic all day, getting home to a naggy wife, and generally watching his life be dictated by others.
FED EASING = o% interest rates, buying mortgage backed secutities, and buying treasury bonds
Large corporations are buying smaller corporations with either the cash on hand (since it pays next to nothing) or borrowing the money at artificially low rates. Then they take the "synergistic savings" from the merger and buy back their own stock.

General Insurance Coverage:
Join a health care sharing ministry. These are voluntary, charitable membership organizations that agree to share medical bills among the membership. Samaritan Ministries, Christian Healthcare Ministries, and Christian Care Ministry. They operate entirely outside of Obamacare’s regulations, and typically offer benefits for about half the cost of similar health insurance. Members are also exempt from having to pay the tax for being uninsured.
Critical Illness Coverage:
Acts like an insurance policy if you have kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, etc. I'd get the highest benefit amount possible.http://www.ehealthinsurance.com/critical-illness-insurance
You should max out your medical and uninsured/underinsured driver coverage amounts
under your auto insurance policy, which can pay medical bills if you are hurt in a car accident.
