Help for the Hurting

The internet is a big scary place. I use my Google reader everyday to avoid spending massive amounts of time wandering the web. Besides blogs and articles that are great for youth ministry, the internet is a great source for information in other life areas.

The problem I have is knowing what’s out there and where to actually find it. I don’t have a lot of time in ministry so browsing the web is not on my to do list. Here are some useful websites that I have used or looked into to make my life a little easier and get things done quicker. Most of them people don’t even know exist.

  • Cellphone Contract Buster. Want out of your cellphone contract? Check out: Cellswapper and CellTradeUSA. (Note: you need to get permission from your carrier in advance and let them know if you want to keep your phone number.)
  • GetHuman: No more automated phone systems. This list will gives you ways to reach a live person at hundreds of companies!
  • Online Conversions: Convert any measurement to another.
  • Weight Management: Free calorie counter, weight loss calculators and weight loss tutorials.
  • WikiTravel: Wikipedia for travelers. Tons of great information on your chosen destination (Great ministry tool for traveling on youth trips or for speaking events).
  • HomeFair: Discover city reports, school reports, and relocation wizards. Also you can calculate whether you are getting a fair salary for your credentials and your location. There are many calculators also including whether you should buy a home or rent. (This is great for people who are just getting married or looking to move)
  • Universal Packing List: An online wizard that helps you with your packing list. (Another good tool for youth ministry in helping your young people pack for retreats, conferences, or other trips)
  • How to Clean Anything: The name says it all. (Go help your wife out, she could use it.)
  • FixItClub.com: How to fix just about anything. This website saves a lot of money and heartache.
  • Freecycle.org: Sign up with your local chapter to donate used items and put in requests for items you need. Items can be as small as baby clothes and as big as automobiles. (Great for families in need at your church)
  • Free Paperbacks: Paperbackswap.com – donate yours and take others’. This is a good way to keep reading at little cost.
  • Computer Backups: Backup your computer online for free with either Mozy or Carbonite.
  • Ringtones: Check out Phonezoo. You can create ringtones and download a ton – all for free.
  • Free Technical Support: Did you know that you can get free computer tech support? Try Tech Support Guy, 5 Star Support, AskMeHelpDesk, or Protonic

    What are you using that’s helping you out?
