March BargainView Spring Into Savings!

Spring Into Savings

by Monica Barber

There’s something magical about the month of March that makes it a special time of year. It marks the end of the long winter days and warmly welcomes the shorter days of Spring. Admiring the new blooms, Ms. M thinks it’s a perfect time to get out of the house and see the town. It’s definitely time to enjoy the full joys of spring with a full wallet. So bask in the colors, take in the sweet aromas of the season and have fun while saving a few dollars.
