There May Be Gold Hiding In Your Old Disney VHS Tapes

Let’s hope you can find that box in your attic with all those old Disney VHS tapes, because if you do… some could make you a fortune.

There are collectors everywhere hunting for items that may bring them a dollar or two, and then there are the big scores.  The kind of finds that can pay off college debt or bring you into a new tax bracket, those are the kid of scores treasure hunters do it for.  The key to treasure hunting and collecting is to find items that were so popular, no one would think to collect them.  These items get lost in the everyday hustle and eventually are valuable.  This is exactly the case with old Disney VHS tapes.

 

 

For an entire generation of children, Disney movies were our childhood and our babysitters all at the same time.  What kid wasn’t put in front of a TV with a VHS tape of some Disney classic playing to keep us busy while our parents prepared dinner?

When we were watching these movies in the 1980s/90s we never thought that they would one day be valuable.  We were kids and they were our entertainment, it all stopped there, but for some those tapes were an eventual goldmine.

 

 

Disney had a strategy, that most of us were not even aware of yet, and it was making certain VHS tapes into collector’s items.  Their strategy was to only release certain movies for small windows of time as special editions.  This created a demand and they limited the supply, simple economics but a brilliant strategy nonetheless.

 

Let’s hope you can find that box in your attic with all those old Disney VHS tapes, because if you do… some could make you a fortune.  

 

 

 

Not every Disney VHS tape valuable so you need to search for certain special editions and rare prints.  The most expensive Disney VHS tape is a special edition of Beauty and the Beast, selling on eBay for $9,000.  This is not the case for every VHS, so make sure you know what to look for…

 

If you see certain packaging on the VHS cover, you are on the money.  Look for a black diamond on the cover’s spine that says “The Classics.”  These special edition copies can fetch anywhere between $50-400 on eBay.  That won’t pay your children’s college tuition but it may feed your family and that’s more than it was doing sitting in a dusty old box.

 

 

A bigger payday awaits for those people who’s tape says, “A Walt Disney Classic,” on the tape itself and the cover.  Those bad boys are worth thousands of dollars.  

 

There are also tapes with banned or discontinued artwork, which fetches a nice chunk of change.  The banned cover of The Little Mermaid is worth over $6,000, so look out for this one.

 

If you don’t have any of these special editions, you can still make money off the tapes are in excellent condition.  A clean tape still in the wrapping can get you a nice payday, so check those boxes.

To get an idea how much stuff is worth, cruise around eBay to see what people are buying.

Tabitha Brown and Other Black Personalities Focus On Joy Despite Crisis

Published

on

Happiness is an essential aspect of survival. For many Black influencers, promoting positivity among fans and followers, mainly during crises, is a must—that so-called reminder that there is still light at the end of the darkest tunnel.

Amid the ill effects of the present COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing debates regarding equality and racism, numerous Black celebrities and creators are offering the community a chance to laugh, reconnect, and heal. Tabitha Brown delights her audience with cooking expertise; Kerry Washington showcases yoga as a calming and reflective activity, and Rickey Thompson entrances followers with his dancing moves.

Brown and Her Cooking

The vegan actress provides both her Instagram and TikTok fans with motivational clips. She combines her southern cooking with inspirational narratives. She guides her millions of followers as she demonstrates how to cook a variety of dishes as she simultaneously calms her audience with her trademark expressions, including “’cause that’s our business” and “like so, like that.”

After her 2-year battle with chronic fatigue and pain, the actress turned to the web, posting motivational videos for fans. “I want to help people,” Brown shares in a recent interview. “I think my content has a responsibility to bring light every day, whether it’s in laughter, whether it’s in inspiration, whether it’s through food,” she adds.

Thompson and His Dancing Moves

Like Brown, Thompson has millions of followers on social media. He dazzles his fans with various dance clips coupled with relatable rants regarding relevant issues. His videos are bursts of color and gaiety, encouraging everyone to believe that things will soon be okay.

He shares that, after the terrible losses that he and his family encountered, he realized that he could use his voice to influence others. Nowadays, he provides his fans with comic relief through dancing, walking, and self-expression. “As a Black person, our whole journey is trying to keep all our emotions within because we’re supposed to be strong, we’re supposed to be these tough people,” Thompson explains. “But we’re also human… What’s important is letting other people know you’re not in this alone,” he continues.

Staying Positive amid Problems

Despite the current difficulties encountered by various Black and colored communities in the country, it is highly important to remain calm and steady. Laughter helps relieve the accumulated stress and pain brought on by the pandemic and increased racism, while motivational talks provide positive guidance on how to make the best of the situation.

Numerous Black influencers and personalities offer various stress relief options online, encouraging others in the community to hold on to each other, although virtually, as we all await the eventual cure to this present pandemic. “So that even if it’s for one minute, it’s an escape for whatever they have going on in life. They can laugh a little bit or cry if they need to, but they just feel like they have somebody at that moment,” Brown asserts.

Indeed, we may all be grappling with various issues at the moment, but hope must spring eternal as survival can only be possible for those who remain steadfast, strong, and happy.

The Fur-Parent’s Guide to Caring for Your Dogs During and After a Lockdown

Published

on

The Covid-19 pandemic has undoubtedly changed the fundamental ways we live our lives. Gone are the days where we can travel freely, have a night out with friends, or even visit the beach! Nowadays, staying at home is considered a norm, and you are only advised to go out for essential travels.

While the human world has been busy adjusting during the lockdown period – fur parents may have forgotten one important aspect – their pets are adjusting to the lockdown period just as much as humans are. Let’s take a look at how you can help your pets cope during the lockdown period.

Ways to Help Pets Cope During Quarantine

Change Their Routine

With everything happening in your life while you work from home, your pet’s usual routine may be disrupted. Consider your dog’s eating habits, exercise, toilet breaks, playtime, training, rest period, sleep, and even the times you hang out together!

If you feel that you are spending more time working while you are at home and seldom have time to play with your pet, train, or feed them, make sure you have a timetable so your pets can have a normal or routine in their lives. Remember, they are adjusting to the change as much as you are; and like you, they also need to have a structure to be productive and engaged.

Exercise

Being cooped up at home can lessen the hours of exercise your pets have for each day, resulting in your pets having excess energy levels. Worry not for there are tons of fun stuff that you can play with your pets even inside the house.

Some games would utilize their sense of smell and their brains to find items for you. This can hit two birds with one stone as you are helping train your dogs at the same time, making sure they have their daily workout sessions.

Sleep

Having more people around the house can negatively affect your pet’s sleep and rest time as the place’s energy stimulates them. Make sure that your pet has its corner where it can relax and sleep. Make the corner more comfortable for them by putting a comfy bed, blankets, and pillows to help them relax even during the day.

Ways to Help Pets Cope after Quarantine

After quarantine restrictions ease up, you will observe that you are spending more time outside, whether for work, errands, or leisure. While being indoors has done wonders in terms of your bond with your pets, they may be used to you and other people in the house.

When you go out for prolonged periods, the distance may come as a shock to your pets. Make sure that they can cope with this change with the following tips:

Gradual Training

If you know that you will be gone for a long time, make sure to train your dog in advance by leaving him in another part of the house first, and then gradually increasing the ‘training’ until they get used to you being out of the house again. Remember, even dogs can get separation anxiety.

Entertain Your Pets

Another way to make sure your dog does not feel bad when you are away is to entertain them! Buy them with a new chew toy or anything that will keep them entertained for a long time so they will not miss you as much when you go out.

Beauty Secret: Mirror Mirror On The Wall Who Is The Hottest Mom Of Them All

Published

on

Moms are often associated as tired looking, laid back, home-focused ladies. Most people would think that being a mom means surrendering your beauty and youth and offering it all to your children, but that is not the case for Joleen Diaz. Find out more about her and her secrets below:

What would you do if your mom is hot? Will you post it on social media like Joleen Diaz’s daughter did to their pic at the seashore? Showing off their beautiful tanned skins and barbie-looking facial features, which is something that they should be proud of.

Joleen Diaz, a 43-year-old mom who is a resident from the Bay Area who made Instagram burn in flames earlier this year after her daughter posted a picture of her on social media.

After going viral, the Instagram-dubbed “Hottest Mom in the World” spoke to Fox News about her sudden, surprising fame and — perhaps most importantly — shared the skincare and fitness secrets behind her impressive fresh looks.

“I’ve been taking care of myself from such a young age; I didn’t just start five years ago,” Joleen said.

Hope doesn’t disappear for those who just started taking care of themselves. Joleen, who is excited to inspire people to live a healthy life and make healthy choices, insists that it’s never too late to start your wellness journey.

  • Diet

Joleen Diaz maintains a whole-food-focused diet, asserting that she doesn’t eat red meat or pork and sticks but mostly to fish and eggs. She also keeps a strict fitness regimen, carving out time for workouts five to six days per week. But according to her, her secret is just to keep the routines basic, so you’ll not be too lazy to achieve it.

  • Exercise

She does thirty to forty minutes of cardio and change that up when she wants to, to how she wanted to. After that, it is up to her to add some twenty-minute stretching for her muscles.

  • Skin Care

As for her glowing and youthful skin, the hot mom reveals she “notices change” when she uses an AHA glycine, an exfoliator that can help skin appear smoother, and a retinol serum started using in her 30s.

She noticed the texture of her skin get fresh and kind of plump. Last year, year and a half, she’s been using tretinoin and saw her pores tighten, and her visible fine lines on her face fade.

Though Diaz keeps a pretty fit lifestyle and doesn’t smoke and seldom drinks, she does have at least one guilty pleasure.

She loves sugar and takes too much control of it. Yet, she only looks for sugar as a stress moderator.

Every day, she has to have a piece of cake or cookies or something, but just in like a small portion. She loves sweets. She indulges every day. But more than anything, Diaz says her looks and physique come from consistency.

Consistency from her skincare routine, fitness journey, and things will make everything all right and feel right for her mind and body. As a woman, you need to satisfy yourself with the things you do; if you want to achieve something, you will take action to achieve it, whether it’s necessary or out of this world.

“Most days I’d rather stay home and take a nap, but I get up and go to the gym,” she said.

Joleen believes in consistency to stay fit, hot, and Instagram ready.
