Winter weather can get the best of us. Severe cold and wind make it unpleasant to be outside, and snow and ice make it unsafe to navigate roads and sidewalks. It can even get bad enough to shut down highways and airports or cut off electricity to homes and offices. That’s why it’s essential to be prepared for extreme changes to your everyday routine.
Preparing your home or apartment can take a lot of planning. In addition to an adequate supply of water and nonperishable food, you’ll need to have ways to stay warm and light important areas of your home during the extended nighttime hours.
If you have an emergency generator, you’re one step ahead of the game. But if you’re like most of us, you’ll need to be ready to operate without electricity should the power to your house ever go out. More...

A pillow never felt so good. As you lie in bed for a wintry snooze, the exhaustion settles in from a grueling year of intense holiday shopping. Heavy eyes and tired limbs seduce your senses to welcome sleep but tonight something is holding you back. Did you make a list and check it twice? Did you remember to buy the batteries? Who’s that tapping my shoulder? It’s time to face the music and reminisce about the follies of Christmas past.
Waiting for eyes to open, the Ghost of Holiday Shopping has chosen you for a trip down memory lane. First stop is Christmas 2012, when technique went out the window and thrifty shopping took a back seat.

Has Black Friday lost its mystique? Are the deals just not what they use to be? For many years, Black Friday, the day when shoppers gather to raid the local strip malls, has been thought of as the best day to find a deal but lately the deals are far from amazing. Noticing a lackluster deal is half the battle while the other half is finding the genuine deals that will help save you money. Reorganize your Black Friday shopping list by making alkaline batteries a top priority. The gift that keeps on giving and the deal with the biggest payoff!
Since the early 2000’s, Black Friday has slowly transitioned from a bargain hunters’ dream to a national holiday. Black Friday has become less about deals and more about profits – putting retailers in a festive mood. What retailers fail to mention is that Black Friday has morphed into Christmas Eve, when deals are hard to find and prices are cleverly reduced. Remember when 60% off was the norm and door-busting deals lived up to their name? Now’s the time to craft a new holiday shopping strategy and show the retailers you mean business. More...
