Dental care is important, and with many
government and employer cut backs, getting the dental care
you and your family need can be more expensive than ever!
Even if you do sign up with an insurance carrier, many
policies require a 6 month waiting period before benefits
begin. Dental care is a part of health care, and therefore
non-negotiable. So here are our methods for getting free

We all have bills to pay every month. With the low economy
and recession in today's world, most of us could use extra
help. Electricity and gas are necessary for heating,
cooking, daily cleaning and bathing. Telephones are a must
for most of us too, especially the disabled. Water and rent
are necessities. We need water to clean the house, take
baths or showers, and for drinking. Rent is a necessity
since we need a roof over our head. Good thing there is help
for the things we really need to get by. Here is how to get
the help you need.

9 things you can covert to cash online today!
We all know you can list household
items on sites like e-bay, and possibly make some cash.
But what if you don't have the time (or patience) to
research each item and wait for someone to bid on it? We
have put together a list of 9 household items that people
are waiting to buy right now! Keep in mind you may not get
as much as you might by listing it for sale and waiting
for the right buyer, but you can clean house and end up
with cash without the waiting or the extra work of an
auction. Best of all you probably have several of these
items laying around the house right now.
1. Old cell phones and electronic
Yes, the latest I-Phone can be
sold everywhere, but did you know even the old school non
smartphones have value? You can expect to get anywhere
from $3 to $20 for the older phones, and up to $150 or
more for smartphones. Of course, the more recent the
phone, the more its worth. Here in the office we found a
shoebox full of older phones, and managed to get almost
$75, enough to treat the office to lunch! You will find
for the older phones, prices don't vary much from company
to company, but if you are selling the latest model, shop
around first, or consider selling on eBay or Craigslist to
get the best price. You can find a list of companies that
buy cell phones here:smartsellphones.us.
Even broken phones do have value. Old cd players, TV's and
computer monitors have value too! Head over to cash4electronics.info
for a current price list.
2. Used Ink and toner Cartridges
Not only is it bad for the environment,
but by throwing away your printerís ink or toner
cartridges, you are potentially throwing away cash. There
are several websites that will buy your empty cartridges
and most will even pick up the tab for shipping. Used ink
cartridges are usually worth a $1 or $2 while the larger
copy toners can go for $20 or more. Check out tonerforcash.com,
to get started. The office store, Staples, also has a
program where they will give you a $2 gift certificate for
each cartridge you bring them.
3. Gift cards
All those gift cards can be converted
into cash, for a small fee, of course. If you don't need
cash, consider trading for a gift card you would use,
depending on the popularity of the gift card you want, you
might even be able to end up with more than you started
with. If cash in your pocket is a must have, expect to pay
anywhere from 10-25% in fees.
Has link to companies that buy gift cards.
4. Sell used clothing
Most of us have items in our closet
that don't fit, we don't like, are out of fashion, or we
just don't wear for one of a thousand reasons. You might
be surprised at what has resale value. Of course all
designer items, but good condition winter or duty
clothing, flannels and bags are all in demand. The list is
wide enough you would have to have a bare closet indeed
not to find a few items worth some cash. Check out: sellclothesforcash.xyz
for current prices and lists. As a general rule in season
items are worth the most, so your winter items are worth
more in winter, and your summer items in summer!
5. Sell reward points and miles
Don't have time for that vacation this
year? You can turn those airline miles into cash! You can
do the same for some credit card and store points too!
This is a great way to raise some extra cash in a hurry,
since if your cash strapped, you are unlikely to travel!
Can search for sites that buy points and miles
6. Get cash for unused Diabetic Test strips
I know several diabetic who always have
extra piles of test strips lying around, and as long as
they are unused they can easily be converted into cash.
This is another great garage sale item you can buy for
pennies, and instantly resell for dollars. Obliviously,
this is not an option for you if you use the strips daily,
but once you start keeping your eyes open, you might be
surprised when you find some. I know a property manager
who make a couple hundred dollars a year selling the test
strips left behind by tenants.

7. Trade books for cash
No, you won't be able to get anything
for those trashy romance paperbacks, or your dog-eared
Start Trek collection, but think textbooks and magazine
collections. Old textbooks from your kid's school (I
always have one in my closet) and college books fetch the
best prices. Magazine collections that span several years
can be good money too if in good condition. How often have
you seen books at a garage sale for .25? Hmmm. Depending
on the book, some textbooks sell for as much as $40 each!
Make sure you calculate your shipping costs, since these
are heavy items, and usually the seller is responsible for
the cost to ship it. Here is a link to get you started.
8. Sell old coins for cash
Yep, you can take this down to your
local pawn shop too, but if you live in a big city, you
might get more from an online dealer for your Wheat
pennies and other common coins. Most pawn shops will
only pay you scrap metal value, or refuse common coins,
unless you have something really rare. Often times you
can get more for common coins from mass coin dealers.
Search around for multiple dealers
9. Change music cd's and DVD's into cash
Remember back before the I-Pad and
Netflix those fun little silver disks we used to carry
around? If they are not scratched up and from Artists/
titles other people have heard of, they are worth a bit.
Don't expect to get more than a few bucks for the in
demand titles, and far less for the less popular. But it
will be one less item to dust, especially if you have
already converted to digital.
