What is better than selling your pre-owned stuff to get some money back?

Thinking of others

Sarina Tucker Boston, MA Boston

I haven’t really been a big online shopper before. I usually think of things me and my family need, and make a list and head to the store. Even though I have two little kids, I still like to get out of the house and pick up the things we need. That’s why I haven’t ever jumped on the Amazon bandwagon. Even today being Cyber Monday, I don’t really feel the need to load up on things for myself ... ... more

Black Friday vs Cyber Monday

There’s a clear difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday- the fact that on is in stores and the other is online. The differences that aren’t as clear cut are what I am most concerned with- what are the differences between the deals? Which is better? Do I shop or wait to see all my options? These questions make these money saving occasions a little stressful. I went shopping with my ... ... more

Hamilton with a side of the goat

Briana13 Boston, MA Boston

I was in the same building as the GOAT?!?! Unknowingly, Tom Brady and Gisele both attended Hamilton in Boston last night. Guess what I did last night? Saw Hamilton in Boston. What a coincidence. If only I had been in a seat closer to him, I would have probably paid zero attention to the actual play. I love how Brady and Gisele attended the show just as if they were regular Bostonians. ... ... more

Easy to forget, but important to remember

Anna Brown Boston, MA Boston

Today is World Kindness Day, which Twitter notified me of this morning. I feel like there are so many "days" in today's society, such as "National doughnut day" or "Siblings day". While it is fun to celebrate these fun and sometimes funny occasions, World Kindness day sticks out to me and actually made me a bit emotional. Being kind to one another should be practiced without saying. Being ... ... more

Stan Lee gone but never forgotten

John Jones Boston, MA Boston

What sad news to wake up to for Marvel fans. Stan Lee died at the age of 95 leaving his amazing legacy behind. He fit a lot into his 95 years on Earth, and has created so many classic films.

What NOT to be on Halloween

Andrea Willows Boston, MA Boston

Sorry Santa, but fall is actually the most wonderful time of the year. The changing colors of the leaves, pumpkin picking, and ending it with an overload of chocolate and bloody makeup. Halloween is a great time to express another side to yourself, but like most times in the mist of creative expression, it is easy to get an idea misconstrued and unknowingly offend people, even groups of ... ... more

Good way to celebrate Halloween

Betty Ford Boston, MA Boston

With Halloween approaching, I wanted to touch upon a subject that is often overlooked, yet very important to be cognizant about.

More often than not the kids already know that they are a bit old to be still celebrating the holiday this way. For many kids, ... ... more
