Who doesn't love a great sale? As a mom of three, I know firsthand how all of the little things we buy each day can really add up. Add to that the cost of sports, dance lessons, enrichment classes and summer camps and it becomes a challenge for a Long Island family to stay on track within its budget.
This column will be dedicated to giving you five great local deals each week that will help your family's bottom line, and since we do the scouting for you, you save time as well as money.
