Clean Up Your Ship With Recycler Classifieds

by recycler on October 31, 2014

Do you have stuff strewn everywhere? Is there stuff piled upon stuff? Classified ads may be the way to go.

We’re hoping the boat you live on is bigger than this. Otherwise, how are we going to have a party?

If you have some stuff lying around like that right now, you need to clean your ship up. (I’m naturally assuming that you live on a houseboat. If it works for the Most Interesting Man, I can work for you as well.)

Now that you’ve decluttered one area and piled it all into another area…a “To-Get-Rid-Of area,” of course, you need to come up with some ideas of what you are going to do with this stuff. You have to decide what to do with all that stuff/junk/garbage/to-be-regifted/where did that even come from items. [click to continue…]


There was another automotive recall recently. But it isn’t brand specific.

Instead, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) put out a notice recalling 7.8 million vehicles potentially containing defective airbags.

The vehicles in question feature Takata airbags and could potentially turn the thing that is supposed to save you in an accident into basically a small explosive device that would send shrapnel firing through you and your car!

Inside the Takata airbags, “inflator mechanisms in the air bags can rupture, causing metal fragments to fly out when the bags are deployed,” according to the Oregonian. The defect has been credited with causing four deaths.

But with Takata producing approximately 22 percent of the world’s airbags, there is a very good chance that you or someone in your family is affected. The nearly eight million vehicles affected are from all types of vehicles.

Honda takes the unfortunate bragging rights as the most affected automotive manufacturer during these recalls with more than five million affected vehicles, but they definitely aren’t the only ones.

Here is the list from the NHTSA of vehicle models that may have potentially deadly airbags: [click to continue…]

Never one to take anything too seriously, Carrey made a couple of hilarious spoofs of Matthew McConaughey’s recent advertisements for the Lincoln Motor Company.

“Sometimes you’ve got to go back to actually move forward. And I don’t mean go back and reminisce or chase ghosts. I mean take a big step back…

“Like go from winning an Oscar to doing a car commercial.”

Helpful Classifieds Listing Hints

by recycler on October 21, 2014

We’ve all been to a local classifieds or auction or local online merchant listing and seen a listing that you just couldn’t believe how terrible it was. Not necessarily what ever was being sold or the price, but the actual listing itself.

The classified ad was sloppy, incoherent and made you question the person posting it’s intelligence, sanity, computer skills or all of the above.

Red Sold Classifieds SignLet’s make sure no one thinks that about your recycler.com local classifieds ad.

If you are using local classifieds, here’s a few simple tips to remember that will help make your classifieds stand out for the good…not the bad:

  2. dont write everything in lowercase use punctuation too no one wants to play the guessing game of trying to figure out how you were thinking to figure out what youre saying
  3. Add a picture. Does it cost extra? Do it anyways. A picture is worth a bunch more words than words tell you that a picture is worth. But you know…words could just be jealous though.
  4. Classifieds aren’t stocks, but pretend like you’re one of those richy-riches that has stocks…diversify. List your items in more than just one classifieds category, more than one publication or website. The more eyeballs, the better and the more likely you are to find the buyer of your dreams…or just one that will buy your stuff/junk/garbage/to-be-regifted/where did that even come from items.
