***this is a sticky post, please scroll down for newer entries

As a blogger AND self-confessed SHOPAHOLIC, I tend to accumulate a lot of stuff and things sometimes get out of hand. There are times when I have a hard time looking for  certain things because it’s hidden underneath a pile of stuff. It can get really frustrating especially when I’m in a hurry.  Even worse, there are times when I totally forget about owning something and end up buying the same thing. What a waste. It also doesn’t help that I have a partner who is constantly changing sports and hobbies. These things tend to take up a lot of space and it makes organizing my home really difficult.

So one day, I decided to stop complaining and start acting. I did some spring cleaning and divided all the stuff we don’t use anymore into 2 bins, one for donation and one for selling.

If I was wealthier, then maybe I would have donated everything, but I’m not  and I need to pay back those credit card bills and make up for being a compulsive shopper. I found a lot of things in my house that are no longer useful to us but could still be of use to other  people…old cellphones, gadgets, shoes, boxing gloves, guitar, clothes:


 and this juicer that I bought for P12,000 and stopped using when our maid left. I am willing to part with it for only P7,000 (neg.) instead of it gathering dust and getting broken in storage.


I live in a condo so having a garage sale is out of the question so what to do instead? Post them on OLX.ph (formerly Sulit.com.ph)! Unlike other classifieds where posting stuff is a multi-step, tedious process, on OLX, you can do it solely by mobile which makes the job a lot easier and a lot less nakakatamad (you can also do it via laptop or computer but I find this route a lot more convenient for me).  All you have to do is download the app (available for both android and ios), snap a photo using your smartphone, upload and post via the OLX app.


 It’s just like instagramming. It’s quick, fast and very similar to casting your reel into a pond full of fishes. From experience, it only takes a few days before someone bites and you can feel #YesYaman again! :P
Like the common saying goes: “Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure”. By getting rid of extra clutter, I managed to organize my home and make some extra cash on the side!

Now, are you ready to take action  and start selling?

To ensure a safe and successful ad placement, check out these tips:
  • Use original photos and make sure they are clear and show your product in detail
  • Price fairly, do research, check out the current market value. Remember, it’s better to sell at a loss than to have it breakdown in storage.
  • Protect yourself. Never share your password or username. Meet up with buyers or make sure payments have been made before shipping your item out.
  • Share your ad through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter
  • And lastly, be honest. Put yourself in your buyers shoes. Would you purchase your product? F not, why? Adjust to make it more marketable.

Hi Jayjay! Thank you so much for the info + tips, appreciate it. :) I am going in for a session later and will ask my therapist about the settings she uses, im curious about level 4, it wont burn me or leave scars kaya and how much more will it hurt? :)

Jayjay said...

What level are you currently on? I've had treatment at a derma prior to trying out Vigen. Based on my experience, treatment at the derma was terribly painful -- to think I have high pain tolerance. I gripped the bed really hard during every session! (Hell talaga. Haha.) This is cause the machine they use is a lot stronger versus the one at Vigen.

When I moved to Vigen, l didn't feel -anything- at levels 1 and 2. Level 3's not even close, but 4 is about 10-25% of the pain I experienced at the derma. If you're already cringing at level 1, then maybe that'd be best you're only beginning. However, if you can suck it up to level 2 or 3 already, then good.


I don't think the machine they have at Vigen is strong enough to scar, but you'll surely experience redness and even soreness after. I can't totally be sure because I'm not a derma. I had several coarse strands left when I got treatment here, so maybe I didn't experience as much pain as I was expecting. At most, I just had a little redness. The therapist said my skin didn't end up as red as most clients. She also said that barely anyone could tolerate level 4, other than myself -- so don't rush to 4 if you really can't take it. The folliculitis I mentioned from my earlier post was from the derma's treatment. Still, it wouldn't hurt to be cautious!


Hope it answers your questions!

Hi Jayjay I just want to ask how many shots you got from vigen? Is it effective?

sarahtirona said...

Hi Cates! I got a package for 6 treatments, I'm currently on my 4th, so far hair growth has reduced significantly although it hasn't totally disappeared yet :)

Cates Dajao said...

Hi Sarah, i just got a voucher from ensogo... im wondering if how many shots per underarm (clicks/pulses per underarm) you got? kasi before i only got 4 to 8 clicks from other beauty salon and it didnt worked for me, im not sure if balbon lang tlga ako or its because of the service. anyway, im planning to get my first session this week. Hope its effective :D

sarahtirona said...

Hi Cates! I actually never asked how many pulses they're giving me but I will on my next visit this week and let you know. All I'm sure of is that I'm currently at level 4 :)

Hello Guys! Thank God I chanced upon this blog. I am a gay guy and I was so interested with IPL. I am so exhausted from shaving and waxing my mustache and beard so I decided to look for an alternative solution. My friend, who had a few sessions of diode from another clinic, suggested to go for Diode instead of IPL kasi mas effective daw. Nakita ko yung deal ng Vigen sa Groupon, since cheaper price, go na ako! I had my first session last week. It was quick, wala pang 5 mins. Inquisitive ako by nature and I learned - as per the therapist, first session has to be on the lowest setting and progresses on the next session. The staffs were so-so, well maybe kasi kulang daw sila ng tao that day baka mga pagod na rin. I kept on asking if effective naman siya and the therapist guaranteed na ok naman daw siya. So far, no noticeable improvement pa and I still had to shave and so tempted to pluck or wax my facial hair. But yeah, it takes a little sacrifice para maging ganap na beauty queen. I will let you guys know if there will be improvement on my end. :)

Cates Dajao said...

Yay thanks! i'll be waiting for your reply :)

ok naman ang diode laser ng vigen and also facial... I am their client since end of last year pero I am planning now to move to other clinic that offers diode laser. Di kasi sila na marunong mag-alaga ng old clients nila, everytime magpapa-sched for appointment ako, it is always not available, lahat ng request kong time and day, di nila ma-accommodate. Di sila marunong maghanap ng way pra mapagbigyan ka. Di nila alam ang the customer is always right. Mas priority nila ung nagpapa-service ng scalp. Di na maganda ang customer service nila...
