Posted on

Read. Shop. Buy smart.

Fall is a great time to make home repairs and upgrades.  “Your Home Revival Guide” will inspire you to take on some of those projects you’ve been putting off.  It provides great information on ways to repair, transform and secure your home.  Here you’ll find ratings for dishwashers, interior paints, generators and more. 

Watch your favorite football teams on a big screen TV this season.  Ensure that you get all the action by reading “The Best Big TVs For Less” to select the right product for your money.  You’ll find ratings for eight different brands in six screen sizes.

Will you have a family get-together this holiday season?  Are you hosting and cooking?  Planning and prepping are the keys to a successful gathering. Many of us missed holiday gatherings last year and have grown a bit rusty when it comes to entertaining.  “Entertain with Ease This Season” will help you manage the process, covering everything from from invitations and Dutch ovens to cleaning up after the event.

If you have shopped at a dollar store lately, you are not alone.  Statistics show that “dollar stores in the country outnumber Starbucks and McDonald’s combined.”  That’s hard to believe!  Check out “The Truth About Those Dollar Stores” for a great overview of the history and current trends of these popular stores.

Other topics in this issue include:

  • “Winter/Snow Tires”
