For Sale: 20″ Samsung SyncMaster SA300 LED PC Monitor – R650 For Sale 05 AUG 2014

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

Having moved the household all onto laptops now, I no longer have a need for my standalone monitors, which means that for a measly R650, you can now be the proud owner of a nifty black 20″ Samsung SyncMaster SA300 LED PC Monitor – in perfect working condition and a great, shiny addition to your home workspace.

Ultra thin and lightweight, the SA300 monitor impresses with its clarity and brightness, with an unbelievably wide viewing angle that basically allows you to see what is being displayed on the screen no matter which angle you approach it from! According to its stats it is hugely power efficient, and like I mentioned before, Samsung’s dynamic contrast technology results in some of the brightest and most clear images that you can imagine for something NOT running in HD. It is in a widescreen format with suggested resolution running at 1600×900. Supports both D-SUB/VGA or DVI connectors, with both power cable and VGA display cable included.

Calling All Buyers: Our Home is now up for Sale! For Sale | My Life 08 APR 2014

So with our Homelink Estates agent Len Wilmot’s week long vacation now over and done with, pleasingly he kicked off the week by getting straight back into the saddle and putting our house officially up for sale.

We’ve listed the house at what I think is a very fair price (R835,000), and so now it is a simple matter to sit back and wait to see if there are any interested buyers lurking out here in the always beautiful Gordon’s Bay.

Of course, when I say sit back and wait, I do mean paint all the interior walls, keep the place spic-and-span, and of course whip the garden into the shape of its life – after all, we are now on show! ;)

Although I’m sure the listing appears in more than just a few places, here are the links to both the Property24 as well as the Homelink Estates web listings:

For Sale: Sturdy White Baby Compactum – R1,200 For Sale 21 JAN 2014

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

Although we’ve just had our second baby arrive on the scene, unfortunately the room that she now calls her own simply doesn’t have enough floor space to accommodate the beautifully sturdy and neat white compactum that we used first time around for Jessica.

I’ve attached a picture to this advert showing my three year old Jessica standing in front of the compactum to give you a good sense of its size, and as you can see, this tall, spacious work space comes with ample storage area in the form of four sturdy pull-out drawers and a vertical, shelved cupboard to the side. Its height is perfect for working with a baby, saving one a lot of backache in the process, and is definitely one of those must haves if you have the floor space for it!

We’re selling it for R1200, which seems a good price if I take into account other similar items for sale on Gumtree and OLX.

Please note it is fairly large and you will therefore have to arrange transport for it, either in the form of a trailer, bakkie or truck. (Unfortunately I can’t help you out on that front. My little Hyundai Getz just doesn’t cut it!)

For Sale: Flatscreen TV Stand – R200 For Sale 21 JAN 2014

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

Sadly, with the recent birth of my second child, my space in the house has shrunk yet again (in other words, I lost my man cave office space), meaning that I’m now forced to get rid of some of my furniture in order to free up precious floor space in our now rather cramped house.

As such I’m selling my stylish, compact, originally a flat-pack, flatscreen TV stand for a measly R200. The pictures attached to the advert gives you an idea of the size – in case you are wondering, that’s a 40 inch flatscreen television fitting comfortably up there. As you can see, it has two shelved cupboard spaces on either side, with an open shelved space in the middle.

I bought it at the end of 2012 from Makro for R500 on special, meaning that its still relatively new and most definitely going for a steal!

For Sale: Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack (XBOX 360) – R450 For Sale 12 DEC 2013

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

Brand new, unused (though once opened out of curiosity. The game seal hasn’t been broken yet in case you’re wondering – I just wanted to see what was in the box) Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack for sale.

I’m too old to make use of this and my daughter is too young, meaning it is just lying there and taking up space in my already cramped man-cave.

The box contains the XBOX Skylanders video game, a character poster, a Portal of Power, trading cards, sticker sheets, and of course 3 Skylander figurines, namely Blast Zone, Wash Buckler and Ninja Stealth Elf.

A great gift for kids, especially considering that we’re heading into Holiday season when these little people of ours need to be entertained! The stores are all currently retailing this one from anything between R750 and R900 (check Musica or Takealot.com if you don’t believe me) – but R450 will do the trick nicely for me to part ways with my copy.

Let me know if you’re interested. I can arrange for pick up points in Gordon’s Bay, Bellville or Westlake Business Park in Tokai.

For Sale: Coricraft 2 Seater Slip Cover Couch – R3,000 For Sale 03 MAR 2013

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

We’re turning our television area into a work space for my wife’s business, meaning that our beautiful Coricraft couch has got to go. We purchased it new in 2010.

The couch is 2.15m long and pretty oversized, meaning it is an excellent couch for lazing about on. It is a slip cover couch (bull denim) which means that cleaning it is a matter of whipping off the covers and throwing it into the washing machine.

A very comfortable and good looking couch at the end of the day, and I have to admit, I’m a bit sad in having to get rid of it!

(We’re selling it for R3,000. In case you’re wondering, brand new, Coricraft is selling this same couch for R5,495! — link)

For Sale: 1997 White Volkswagen Jetta Sedan – R17,500 For Sale 27 JUL 2010

Please note that this item has since been sold and is no longer available for purchase.

For Sale: A white, 1997 Volkswagen Jetta Mark 3 – R17,500 (neg.)

Although she already has a good 241 250 km under her belt, this girl is still in good working condition with a sound, reliable engine, decent fuel economy, and available at an unbeatable price!

She comes armed with an alarm, immobiliser and central locking, possesses a good set of tyres, a full spare wheel in the boot, a completely overhauled clutch, replaced water pipes, all her original documentation, and finally, all major services taken care of.

There are of course some minor niggles that will need to be addressed by you at some point in time. First, she needs her front windshield replaced as that is currently cracked (vertical line, driver’s side). Next, there are a couple of rust spots that can be looked at and also, the air-conditioner is currently not working (though I suspect a re-gas might fix that). Finally, the radio face appears to have a loose connection, meaning that the radio doesn’t play at the moment.

The reason that I am selling my long-serving girl is because I recently got a pay increase at work, meaning that I bought a new car to replace her with. So, if you are interested in picking up a good family car for pretty cheap, feel free to contact me (Craig) on 0828521524 or at craig.lotter@gmail.com.

For Sale: Trojan Sit Up 100 Bench – R200 For Sale 27 MAY 2010

* Please note that this is an old post – the bench was sold within a couple of days of posting this, i.e. it was gone by June 2010 already! *

I currently have a second-hand Trojan Sit Up 100 bench up for sale, going for a pretty low R200 (negotiable).

This sit up bench allows for a maximum user weight of 100 kg and is ideal for all of those keen on doing a variety of sit ups and other stomach exercises in order to firm up that tummy in the privacy of their own home!

(Also, it doubles as a pretty inexpensive inclined bench against which to do incline bench presses if you are keen on working on those pecks, arms and shoulders!)

It is pretty lightweight, of a decent build quality, has nice spongy cushions for your knees and ankles, a padded surface for your back and features adjustable leg positions meaning that you can change the incline height whenever you want to.

The bench folds up and can be stored in an upright or horizontal position, meaning it can happily be packed away behind the door, under the bed or even in a broom cupboard when not in use.

The reason for selling is pretty simple. Firstly, we have our first child on the way and thus now need to make some space in our small flat for the baby room. Secondly, I have since exceeded the maximum weight limit since purchasing the bench a year or two ago, rendering it pretty much useless to me for sit ups! :)

So in other words, a great little exercise helper that makes a good addition to any home gym collection, is in excellent condition, and is going for a tasty low price of R200!

If you are interested, you can contact me (Craig) on either 082 852 1524 or at craig.lotter@gmail.com
