Vegan Diet Taught Me

1. Eating Healthy; Just a Piece of the Puzzle
Healthy eating is good as long as everything is done at the right time and with a positive attitude. Exercise is just as important as well as sleep. I rather not go through a list of dos and dont's, I've learned to go with the flow and make progress through experience. 

Buy Authentic Shoes at a Low Price

Each sneaker is identified with a SKU # of the sneakers,  it can be found on the size tag or shoe box. When you search a SKU online you will have a greater chance of finding sellers because writing it is a more precise search. The SKU shown is of the Jordan X Shadow.

The following can be used for NIKE or Jordan sneakers. Call NIKE and ask lookup the SKU in any factory stores. The rep will search across the 50 States for NIKE outlets and factory stores for the sneaker. If the sneaker is found ask them for the phone # and call. Double check with the factory store to search the SKU, if available they are will take a debit/credit card payment and ship it out for a reasonable price.

Better to Barter

I usually look to sell things on craigslist, but lately I've opened up to bartering or trading instead of selling for the quick cash. There's a barter section on craigslist. By bartering there's a higher chance to acquire an item of greater value, this is because there are a lot more variables in bartering. If you have an item someone wants at the moment then there's a chance they're willing to trade for an item that may be of greater value. Give it a try, it's much easier to attempt to barter when you have a popular item that ranges quick interest like an iPhone, or some fancy gadget. Patience is essential to bartering, it's like fishing, choose your bate and wait until something comes up. Cheers.

Real life example, today I traded an iPhone 3G 16GB for a Dell Netbook. I had bought the iPhone for $80 to sell it for double but instead I traded it for a Dell Netbook that values $260 on the street. The barter ad was up for a month.

Free Postage (USPS)

Simply switch he "To:" and "From:" addresses on the letter and drop it off at the mailbox. Put your address at the "To:" field and the addressee's address in the "From:" field. When the mail-carrier notices that there is no postage stamp they will label the letter RTS (return to sender). The letter will then be sent to the address in the "From:" field.

Note: The mail carrier might not be that generous so don't send anything too valuable and keep the addresses within the same city or so. Either way it's worth a try.

How To: Save Battery on iOS Device

This tip may come off as odd since it's been understood that 'Airplane Mode' cuts off all wireless activity. On the contrary, it still allows the use of Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth on any iOS device i.e. iPod Touch, iPad and iPhone. It will more than double the battery life of the iOS device. Use it on any generation iPod Touch and (Wi-Fi only) iPads.

The reason being, the iPod Touch and iPad (Wi-Fi only) do not use cellular data. If you happen to already use your iPhone as an iPod Touch and not as a phone then this will work as well. 

1. Select Settings
2. Switch Airplane Mode 'ON'
3. Proceed to turn on Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth. Both will still function while Airplane mode in 'ON'.
