The below tips should help however in finding yourself wearing the perfect dress while attending a summer wedding.
Maybe it’s the fact that everything seems to be new all around us. Or possibly it’s because bright colors are once again happily abounding. Whatever the reason, there’s something about spring that makes us want to shop, even more than normal. And if you don’t want to break the bank or spend an entire paycheck, there are ways to save a few bucks on the items you are wanting. If you intend on spending anyways, shopping online is a great way to save dough, and if you’ve been good and set a budget, that extra dough can net you a few more items. Continue reading
Shopping for groceries is more expensive than one would think – all that food adds up quickly! This is especially true if you’re trying to go green; organic inevitably costs more. However, you’re not doomed to a life of breaking the bank on food for your family; if you employ just a few tips for grocery shopping, you’ll find that saving money at the supermarket is a breeze. For example, always stick to a budget when you’re out to buy food. This can be made easier if you put together a shopping list of what you need to buy, rather than what you want to buy. Buy in bulk whenever you can, as this will be cheaper – however, make sure that the food you’re buying in bulk won’t expire anytime soon. In addition, don’t spend extra on brands – instead, buy the store brands. Odds are the taste won’t be that different; after all, cereal is cereal. Continue reading
I’m definitely not your average biker, but I’m also not a novice when it comes to motorcycles and gear. I first started getting interested in bikes towards the end of high school, and it wasn’t long before I got my motorcycle license and started biking up and down the east coast. After college I had to move out of the city, and I’m currently pretty far away from any kind of serious biker community. That’s why I was so stoked to find out about RevZilla.com, the best online retailer there is when it comes to motorcycle gear and equipment. Continue reading
I live in a pretty rural area; my closest neighbors range from cows to horses, and even they are at least a half mile away from my house. The nearest town or shopping center is at least forty five minutes away, given that you are driving fast. Fortunately for me, there is a general store about ten minutes away from me, so I can buy food and shampoo and other items. Don’t get me wrong, I love where I live – I grew up in a big city, but something about the seclusion of the countryside has always spoken to me. However, that same seclusion can be a bit of a challenge when trying to buy basic things such as clothes, shoes, and other necessities. Continue reading
When I was little, I always used to ask my parents about our family tree. Truth is there was only so much that my parents could tell me about my family. My parents didn’t know that much about my family history and there was only so much that I could learn from some old boxes in my Grandmother’s attic. I was still curious to learn more about my family’s past. Continue reading
I’m a guy that works something like 50 hours a week, spends a lot of time shuttling back and forth between home and the office, has plenty of family commitments to look after (including making the upstrate trip to the grandparents’ on the weekends), and is also working towards a degree on top of all that. Needless to say, there are times when I just need a vacation. It helps to get away at times, but then that opens up a whole new level of issues: finding a suitable location can be a chore, staying at hotels can get pricy, and a cruise of some sort is out of the question – I hate the water. That’s why I was ecstatic to learn about HomeAway.com, a website that lets you find great homes to vacation in and handle the hassle of booking quickly and easily. Continue reading
