Read. Shop. Buy smart.

Much of 2021 was focused on illness. As 2022 gets underway, let’s shift gears and focus on wellness.  “Your Wellness Toolkit” is full of great suggestions to improve your health.  Make wellness one of your new year’s resolutions and let this toolkit help you make some great choices with tips on everything from workouts to weighted blankets, from salads to cocktails, all aimed at improving mind and body.

Did you get a new computer this holiday season?  You might need a new printer to go with that.  If color and graphics are not all that important to you, check out the reviews to help you find the best black and white printer for your money.

If this is the year you plan to take the plunge and purchase a new car you’ll want to check out the road report on “The Most Reliable New Cars of the Year.”  See how they stack up before you start test driving.  Once you’ve found the perfect car read “Stop Paying Too Much for Your Car Loan” before you close the deal.  You don’t want to take on more debt than you have to.

Do you like rotisserie chicken from the grocery store?  You’ll enjoy “Confessions of a Costco Virgin” – an entertaining and informative article by a young man who recently discovered precooked poultry.  He devotes a good portion of his review to the question of “How to Find a Humanely Raised Bird.”

Other topics in this issue include:

  • “The Best Chef’s Knives for Your Kitchen” 
  • “Top-Rated Smart Thermostats”
  • “Alcohol-Free Libations You’ll Love” 
  • “Get Cleaner Tap Water With an Under-Sink Filter”
  • “Keep Pet Hair From Going Everywhere”
  • “Can You Get a Better Price Even After You’ve Paid?”
