Where is the Cheapest Gas in My Area?

I usually am happy to hear when Chicago is #1 at something. Once it was the Bulls...we all wish & hope the Cubs will be #1....however, when Chicago earned the #1 rank for the highest price of gas ini the US I was far from happy.

I did, however, find a site that is updated each day with the gas stations in each zip code that have the lowest prices in the area.

Now...who wouldn't want to see the lowest gas prices in their area???

Pass this onto friends and help them save money on gas!!

Have a healthy day!

5 Minute Spring Cleaning Tips

Ahhh...Springtime! It makes you think of flowers, birds chirping, picnics and baseball. On the other hand, you can't help thinking of that dreaded term, 'spring cleaning'.

If you think you don't have time to spring clean this year, try to take a few minutes here and there to spruce up your house.

If you have FIVE minutes....

  • Clean kitchen countertops.

  • Clean the backsplash.

  • Wipe out refrigerator crisper drawers. Line drawers with paper towels so next time you can just toss the dirty paper towel with a clean one.

  • Clean out one or two shelves in your refrigerator or freezer.

  • Disinfect the trash can.

  • Clean the microwave. Spritz the inside with water then turn on high for a few seconds. Allow to sit for a minute, then wipe with a clean cloth.

  • Wipe woodwork in your kitchen.

  • Wipe a few drawer and cabinet handles.

  • Sort through a favorite junk drawer.

Happy Spring!
