    3. Looking for Plans for Building a Shed?

    Whether you are retired or just looking forward to that time in the yard on the weekend, you may be on the search for the right plans for a shed in the yard.

    Ask yourself some questions before you begin. The first of which is: Why do you want a shed? Once you determine what you want to accomplish with the shed, then you can come up with the right design. Sounds straight forward - right? You would be amazed to learn how many people begin a project like this without a clear indication of everything they want to accomplish with it.

    Figure out how small or large that you want the shed to be. It you are storing yard equipment, make sure that it is large enough to fit them all in. Consider your future needs as well, that is, space to grow.

    Determine where you will locate the shed in your yard. You may find yourself in a tricky situation where your space is limited. Consider how you will access the shed.

    Of course, be careful regarding building permits. Check out the requirements with the city or town and even the local homeowners association. If you live outside of city limits, you may be able to proceed without a building permit.

    Determine what you budget will be. It is so easy to get tempted and exceed your budget. In most cases, it is better to stick to you plan and your budget.

    Be sure to do your research in finding the best shed plans online. There are many available on the web. We have searched through a number of plans and have found such a great variety with all of the step-by-step instructions in the plans put out by Ryan Henderson. You can even get FREE Shed Plans to try them out.

    We hope you enjoy building your new shed.

    Build a shed or build your life the way you want it to go. Today can be the "First Day of the Rest of Your Life". See if this is what you want to do with your life.

    4. Mobile Apps to Get Jobs for Retirees

    Companies realize that 93% of the U.S. population own some kind of cell phone. So they are customizing their recruiting efforts to take advantage of the technology.

    You probably know most of the companies that have job postings online. Now, as you look for jobs for retirees or even if you are not close to retirement, you can use your cell phone to get access to the job boards. Some of the major ones you could consider are:
    • LinkedIn Mobile
      We all know what an impact LinedIn has had on finding opportunities in the workforce. Now it is mobile. Recruiters periodically mine LinkedIn for people whose background and skills match job positions for their organizations. It doesn't matter if the person is looking for a job or not, they are still in the labor database in LinkedIn.

    • TweetMyJobs
      You can sign up on this Twitter based job board via cell phone or computer. Just need a Twitter account and an a Twitter app or similar app. Specified job postings can be send directly to your phone.

    • Job Search by
      If you want to look at multiple job boards by title, location or company, then this is for you. New listings can be emailed to you.

    • Pocket Resume
      Use this to create a resume using its form. Then you can edit and email a simple resume. It has the capability to convert the text to PDF file.

      This big guy is here too. In addition to its vast search, you can forward to any email address and fill out job applications.

    • Google Maps
      Don't forget this one. It has mobile-enabled navigation system and can help you find the right location whether you are walking, driving or using public transportation.

    • Others are available, but these should certainly get you started with your job search on the go. Best of luck!
