I’ve just finished paying the loans for my car from my mum’s company. Although her boss was nice enough to sell off the 20 year old car that my mum has been riding to me, the condition was poor and I had to spend $500 on repairs alone. If I used online classifieds, I would’ve had a wider choice to select from. For those living in the US or Canada, try LemonFree.
Price of cars listed on LemonFree, the Used Cars For Sale portal, tend to be cheaper. Here, the basic searching would be the make or the brand of the vehicle you’re looking for. From there, you can start browsing through the listings for the year you want. Remember that most of the listings you will find are placed by private individuals not car dealers. The advantage would be getting a vehicle for a lower price. Sometimes, the condition of the vehicle is better as well. These vehicles are owned by private individuals. The downside would be, of course, there is no warranty. When you’ve found a car that you would like to purchase, bring your own trustworthy mechanic. This way, you’ll get to sort out the honest opinion of your mechanic on the condition of the car.
LemonFree has 7 search criterias that allows users to search through their auto classifieds with ease and accuracy. With just a few clicks of the mouse, users will save time and get the vehicles that match their wishes.

I believe that the most attractive part of the internet is the free part. Anything free will attract people like honey to bees. Same goes to LemonFree. Visitors can also find reviews for 42 different types of car makes and 60 different articles that are of specific interest. For me, the most interesting article is on how to buy used cars. It tells on how much time and money is saved by using online classifieds.
Aluminium foil is not only used to wrap food. It can also be used to :
Keep pets off furniture
Can’t keep Snoopy off your brand-new sofa? Place a piece of aluminum foil on the seat cushions, and after one try at settling down on the noisy surface, your pet will no longer consider it a comfy place to snooze.
Protect a child’s mattress
As any parent of a potty-trained youngster knows, accidents happen. When they happen in bed, however, you can spare the mattress — even if you don’t have a plastic protector available. First, lay several sheets of aluminum foil across the width of the mattress. Then, cover them with a good-sized beach towel. Finally, attach the mattress pad and bottom sheet.
To clean your jewelry, simply line a small bowl with aluminum foil. Fill the bowl with hot water and mix in one tablespoon of bleach-free powdered laundry detergent (not liquid), such as Tide. Put the jewelry in the solution and let it soak for one minute. Rinse well and air-dry. This procedure makes use of the chemical process known as ion exchange, which can also be used to clean silverware.
Move furniture with ease
To slide big pieces of furniture over a smooth floor, place small pieces of aluminum foil under the legs. Put the dull side of the foil down — the dull side is actually more slippery than the shiny side.
Clean out your fireplace
Looking for an easy way to clean the ashes out of your fireplace? Place a double layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil across the bottom of the fireplace or under the wood grate. The next day — or once you’re sure all the ashes have cooled — simply fold it up and throw it away.
Put some bite in your mulch
To keep hungry insects and slugs away from your cucumbers and other vegetables, mix strips of aluminum foil in with your garden mulch. As a bonus benefit, the foil will reflect light back up onto your plants.
Scare crows and other birds
Are the birds eating the fruit on your trees? To foil them, dangle strips of aluminum foil from the branches using monofilament fishing line. Even better, hang some foil-wrapped seashells, which will add a bit of noise to further startle your fine-feathered thieves.
Keep bees away from beverages
You’re about to relax in your backyard with a well-deserved glass of lemonade or soda pop. Suddenly bees start buzzing around your drink — which they view as sweet nectar. Keep them away by tightly covering the top of your glass with aluminum foil. Poke a straw through it, and then enjoy your drink in peace.
Keep paint off doorknobs
When you’re painting a door, aluminum foil is great for wrapping doorknobs to keep paint off them. Overlap the foil onto the door when you wrap the knob, then run a sharp utility knife around the base of the knob to trim the foil. That way you can paint right up to the edge of the knob. In addition to wrapping knobs on the doors that you’ll paint, wrap all the doorknobs that are along the route to where you will clean your hands and brushes.
Keep a paintbrush wet
Going to continue painting tomorrow morning? Don’t bother to clean the brush — just squeeze out the excess paint and wrap the brush tightly in aluminum foil (or plastic wrap). Use a rubber band to hold the foil tightly at the base of the handle. For extended wet-brush storage, think paintbrush Popsicle, and toss the wrapped brush in the freezer. But don’t forget to defrost the brush for an hour or so before you paint.
