I found a small rental with a big pool on Craigslist. Lee thought I was crazy to look at Craigslist, but it was one of the best vacations we have had. I e-mailed the owner, paid and we drove out to Long Island. We picked up the keys from the owners friend and the house […]

I got them at 75% off at Tanger Outlet in Riverhead. A coupon from the outlets made the deal even sweeter! My best deal from Restoration Hardware was their paint. […]
