Ease of Pawning

Generally, like any process out there, pawning is often thought of as complicated. In a certain sense, it is! With the traditional setup, it required bringing your item over to their store through the heat and traffic of the city, waiting in line for your turn, then letting someone look over your item for pawning. Only after do you find out how much you can get and, depending on the item in question, figure out if it's enough to cover whatever need got you pawning to begin with.

Pawning has been around for centuries and is one of the longest-serving business models around. You could say that it's a natural offshoot of the barter system that served as man's means of getting what he needed. With such a natural evolution, it's funny when you realize that it gets such a bad rap these days. Many people see it as a desperate, "last chance" solution that they hide from the people who care about them. But you don't have to be desperate to pawn. There are many reasons why it's a viable means to raise money for other cool things like upgrades or even investments. PawnHero takes a look at those reasons. There's historical precedence.

TUITION_FBARTICLE

Education is one of the more important things you have to spend on. When it comes to securing the future of your children, this is what should be a major priority. With many grade levels to run through (not even counting college!), it’s a pretty big investment and, if we’re totally honest, not everyone can afford it. One way to raise cash is to borrow money—which is the classic way people do it. Because tuition fees are repeating expenses, this is also the best way to rack up significant debt. A better way is to pawn items that you don’t need or those that aren’t as important as, well, educating your kid. PawnHero looks at 10 things around your home that you can pawn if you need quick cash for your kid’s tuition fees. 1 – Smartphones Easily among one of the more prized possessions these days, smartphones are just as easily one of the more bankable items around your home when it comes to pawning for quick cash.

What’s Your Vote Worth?

If the hubbub on social media channels are anything to go by, the stakes of this upcoming election are really high. For the past few months, people have been engaging in friendly (and, often, unfriendly) word wars over their chosen candidates or manoks—to go by the colloquial. While it’s heartening to see lively and robust discussions like these, the funny subtext that many people don’t realize is that far too many Filipinos aren’t even registered to vote. Of the roughly 101,498,763 Filipinos worldwide, only around 52,014,648 are duly registered voters. Granted, a great majority of the total number of Filipinos will be underage and not eligible to vote anyway, it’s still a great many votes that aren’t getting cast. If you look deeper, it gets slightly more disturbing. Of those not registered, around 2,500,000 are officially inactive. Of those registered, many aren’t planning on voting anyway. For those keeping themselves out of the electoral process, the main justification always … [Read more...]
