We recently posted a couple of buying guides featuring products easily found on eBay. The first guide covered gear bags and accessories for the college student. The second one covered outfitting your home and yourself for emergencies.
In the first guide, I talked about what my daughter had learned about living on a college campus and how it differs from living at home and going to high school. In addition to not having a room to herself, my daughter’s biggest lessons came from learning how her gear bag needs differ when tramping around a 730-acre campus with a backpack filled with an expensive laptop, phone, and tablet – not to mention expensive textbooks and invaluable notes. She needed a new way to carry and protect her gear as she walks to class in all sorts of inclement weather, especially rain. eBay offers a variety of backpacks and other gear to keep her valuables protected and dry. They can even keep her gear charged with the wide selection of backup batteries and charging cables they offer.
The second guide was inspired by September’s Emergency Preparedness Month. You are faced with a lot of dangers in our modern world, not all of them of the end-of-the-world scale. Everyday, smaller-scale emergencies include getting your family and yourself out safely in case of power outages in your home or having a dead cellphone and needing to call loved ones to let them know you weathered the storm. More urgent situations include getting out of a submerged car or keeping yourself warm and fed in the event of larger scaled emergency situations.
You can read these guides in their entirety on eBay. Check out Gear bags and accessories for the college student and Be prepared for emergencies big and small guides, and while you’re at eBay, also check out how you can sell your old cellphone on eBay to earn money for upgrading to the new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus just released by Apple in September. Don’t sell yourself – and your phone – short. Selling on eBay returns up to $200 more for your current previous generation device over competitors. In fact, eBay is so sure your phone will sell, if it doesn’t sell, you will receive a $100 eBay coupon for phones listed on eBay between September 1 and October 24.* [restrictions apply]
