At Ruff Housing, furry family members can make new friends and sleep soundly under expert supervision as their pet-parents leave for vacation or work. Dogs can safely explore their surroundings and socialize with other dogs in rooms with cushy rubber flooring or outdoor areas outfitted with K9 artificial grass. Pets are even grouped together by size and play style to ensure everyone gets along and no one fights over who has the cutest tail. Animal caretakers ensure the safety of each dog in their care, putting pups to bed in spacious crates and private cots, or giving pooches makeovers with grooming and cleaning services.
Studio One to One's photographers posture subjects in casual, comfortable positions against understated backgrounds before capturing photos. Families can cuddle each other, aspiring models can smile with their eyes in glamour shots, and expectant mothers can flaunt ever-growing tummies and chocolate-covered pickles. After shutterbugs snap shots, patrons can immediately view video proofs, and video slideshows of the session's shots come complimentary with every appointment. Color pics of the day's strongest shot are printed in four different sizes, from images that slide snugly into wallets to 11"x14" photos perfect for living rooms or neighbors' bedrooms. Sessions should be booked by phone or online at least 24 hours in advanced.
Endorsed by financial author Dave Ramsey and highlighted on Oprah Winfrey's Life Lift blog, eMeals charts out a week's worth of dollar- and health-savvy dinner recipes to relieve the burden of kitchen-related stress. Each week, organized grocery lists based on food style, family size, and even grocery store showcase flavorful culinary creations for discerning palates. Plans developed by working parents capitalize on sale items at stores such as Walmart, Publix, and Kroger, and an "any store" list can be used to navigate the aisles of other favored grocers. Family meal plans serve seven meals for three to six people, whereas plans for two are tailored to singles, couples, or a pair of sock puppets on a date atop a chest of drawers.

A duo can fill a Publix cart for $50–$60 a week, including side dishes.
