The more nooks and crannies and fun gifties to discover, the better. I’m always on the lookout for products that are happy, useful, and not outrageously […]

So, there’s another storm bearing down on a good portion of the country. Many of us should check (for seemingly the hundredth time this season), to see if there’s any sand, deicer, or salt left, and whether the handle on the shovel is going to make it through another heavy snowfall.
