Don’t Let the Winter Months Affect Your Grocery Bill

Posted On: Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

winter grocery shoppingLiving in a colder state, it’s no surprise the household bills tend to spike during the winter months, but why does the cost of groceries seem to rise? The hike in cost is often due to the need to eat richer food in colder months. Here are a few tips on how to save on groceries during the winter months:

Posted On: Monday, January 30th, 2017

Even the ocean itself is different during the colder months of the year. There’s no better time to marvel at the breaking waves and enjoy a peaceful sunset. These beaches are often overlooked and yet they’re just as much fun, less crowded and easier to get to than the overly crowded, expensive beaches in New York or New Jersey. (more…)
