Tips for Collecting Sports Memorabilia!

Things To Consider When Collecting
~ Sports Merchandise ~

There are numerous considerations for a person to make when they are interested in collecting sports merchandise such as NFL replica helmets. Many people are interested in having a certificate of authenticity to prove that the item is legitimate. The price of the product is also an important consideration for individuals who are interested in collecting vintage sporting goods. The price of the item is also important for people who are trying to stop for their favorite memorabilia on a budget.

Individuals often want merchandise which is as close to the game ready as possible. This is because people enjoy the option of being able to live vicariously through their favorite sports heroes. Having merchandise which is as close to where it's possible can sometimes help a person to get lost in the experience of having the merchandise for themselves. This is beneficial for individuals who are big fans and want to feel like they are part of the team.

Another thing people will want to consider is the condition of the merchandise they are purchasing. Many times people cannot afford full price for the merchandise and they may want to wait for sales. Sometimes people can also save money when they choose to purchase merchandise which has been returned to the store for personal reasons. Asking any employee about potential discounts is a great idea when shopping for sports merchandise. The age of the merchandise will also factored into the overall price.Sometimes small blemishes can save a person a lot of money when shopping for a replica products.

Rare Nature:
Depending on how rare a piece of merchandise is, sometimes people can find quite a bargain when they are shopping at local sporting goods stores. People often have to do quite a bit of research in order to be able to find amazing discounts. Shopping online prior to going to a store can help people to find the merchandise they are looking for and have a good idea of the general price they should be expecting to pay. Obviously people will spend more for merchandise which has autographs and other one of any kind markings. Being knowledgeable about what is available on the market can help a person to save money while getting a quality product. Comparison shopping can be time consuming but is well worth the effort.

Garcinia PLUS Cleanse Fast Fat Loss #Dietkit #Giveaway

Garcinia PLUS Cleanse
Fast Fat Loss Combo Kit

There is a lot of hype going around about Garcinia Cambogia and its ability to help fight fat in the body, and even more hype about the effects when used with a proper colon cleanse. The hype ranges from the best thing since sliced bread to others claiming it has no positive effects. I personally want to say I have not tried this product and have no desire to try it.

My husband on the other hand has read numerous studies, blogs, forums, medical statements etc about the positive and negative claims associated with Garcinia and the cleanse products. He has decided he really wants to try it out and has a list of what to watch out for. Because Garcinia Cambogia is known to help keep your body from creating fat, it also has the potential to lower your blood sugar levels. Since both of his parents had/have diabetes, this is something he will need to keep track of. This, would be the same for anyone who has a family history of diabetes. Keep in mind the effects and processes of how the cleanse and Garcinia work together so you don't end up with unfavorable or potentially harmful results.

So why would he want to risk taking it if he could have less than desirable results??

Well, he also has bad cholesterol and his triglycerides are triple where they should be. He has taken many different medications and does not like the side effects of them at all. So much so that after taking them for a couple years he just quit. The side effects bothered him more than his triglycerides and cholesterol levels. He feels since he is aware of what to look for when it comes to his blood sugar levels, the potential positive outcome of the Garcinia PLUS Cleanse Combo outweighs his worries.

My best advice to you, when deciding whether a Garcinia Products is good for you or not, is to really research the way it works and how it could potentially effect you and your body personally. Everyone is different. What might cause side effects for you, may not do anything to your neighbor, friends, spouse or family.  Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to make sure the combo will not interfere with other medications you may be taking. The way a product metabolizes in your system could be on a completely different scale than how it does with someone else.

Product Information:Garcinia Cambogia Advanced was developed with the TV doctor's strict criteria for the proper Garcinia Supplement. Here's his recommendation, which is seen on his website... The good TV doctor recommends taking 800mg twice a day, 30 minutes before meals (That's 1600mg a day total). ...He recommends that the product be 100% pure, have absolutely no fillers, no binders, no artificial ingredients and in a pure vegetarian capsule.

She doesn't need me anymore... My inner struggle..

Watching Your Child Succeed
~ The Inner Struggle ~

It's hard to believe in just over four short months, I will be watching my oldest child walk across the stage to accept her High School Diploma. The reality of it seems to be hitting me in spurts. While I am extremely proud of her and can't wait to see her head off into the world, and accomplish all her dreams and goals, It also leaves a bitter sweetness that has me feeling some sort of way, I've never felt before.

I realize its probably because I've never experienced this situation, and therefore have no clue what to expect from myself or her for that matter. Part of me is feeling a sense of loss. It's not the same feeling as losing someone to a death or another devastating action. It's not the same as losing something valuable, or knowing you will never see it again. These are not the types of losses I am feeling and honestly not a fear I have. It's more the loss of being needed. Not because I think she won't need me ever again, I know she will. I still need my mom. That's not it either, but maybe because as she becomes more independent, the less she needs me. Not by my standards of course, but by hers. While I can respect that, and even admire that, it doesn't stop the little ache I feel.

Where is that little sleepy head who can't quite drift off without the gentle touch from mommy? The timid girl who needed a little nod of encouragement to sing her heart out at her chorus concert, the flabbergasted teen who needed to hear me say it'd be okay, when she broke it off with her first beau. The adventure seeker who needs her wounds wrapped up and kissed away??

But then I look at her... Really Look At HER...

She's still there. Always has been. Always will be. All grown up and full of life. Able to calm herself to sleep. Confidence and determination of a thousand men. Secure, happy and full of joy within herself. Cautious and adventurous in all the right kind of ways. Wiser now than she was before, but she's still there. That child of mine.

So although, I struggle with the knowledge that as she grows, learns and develops into the woman she wants to be, her needs and wants are going to change and involve me less and less. However, I also take pride in the knowledge, that I was able to be there, watch and take part in her growing, learning and developing into the woman she is today.

Her Own Person, But Also... My Daughter!

Power Theory
2500mAh Portable Charger

I am thrilled with this PowerCard! Of all the ones I have received and reviewed, I would have to say this is the most portable! I love that the connection cord is a silicone plug, that is attached, to the PowerCard.

Having something like this is perfect for me! I tend to just throw these chargers in a bag or purse (although this one is slim enough for a back pocket or wallet) and I always have loose paper, gum wrappers lint etc.. and hate when stuff gets into the ports on my gadgets. This silicone plug fits perfectly snug and secure to eliminate that issue. Keeping the power bank and the cord in stable condition while not in use!

They have also included a shorter cord with a standard USB and Universal plugs as well as a little adapter piece that converts the universal end into an apple compatible end. They really did think of everything. This product is perfect for anyone needing a space saving external  battery charger!
