Steals of the Week: Used items to make your life simpler

In case you didn’t know, it’s “Simplify your life week” this week. To help support the cause, we’ve decided to devote Steals of the Week to used items that will help simplify your life.

On with the Steals of the Week show:

If you haven’t made the jump to a Smartphone yet (and according to an informal Facebook poll we took recently many of you haven’t), now is the time. There might never have been any used items that will simplify your life more than an iPhone. The fact you can get this iPhone3G with charger and box for just $70 in Citrus Heights, CA is truly Steals of the Week worthy.


Tending to the garden is just not simple, nor fun, without the right tools. It doesn’t matter if they are used items or new, you must have the proper stuff to simplify your landscaping life. That’s what makes this Black & Decker Electric Edger so vital. It’s available for only $55 (or best offer) in Tampa, Fla – a Steals of the Week quality value.


There’s really no other way to put it: When it comes to cooking there are no used items that help simplify your life more than a microwave. It truly was a magical invention. That you can get one for just $35 in Oak Park, CA, Amana no less,  is a testament to sellers and Steals of the Week.


Having jewelry is great, but without anywhere nice for it to go, it just complicates things, instead of simplifying your life. That’s what makes jewelry boxes such great used items to purchase. Especially when they cost just $10, like this one in Anaheim, CA.

Closing out the Steals of the Week intended to make your life simpler is a food processor from Cuisinart. What makes this one so great is that even though it’s not from the store, the seller from Citrus Heights, CA claims it’s not among used items, because it’s brand new in the box! For $125, you can’t beat that.

Hopefully we were able to make your life a little simpler with this edition of Steals of the Week. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
