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.
Special paleo, gluten-free, clean-eating, low-fat, and portion-controlled meal-plan options aid nongeneric eaters in assembling targets for their teeth and fitness regimens. The classic version of the Walmart family plan supplies culinary sustenance to families of three to six for an average weekly cost of $75?$85 and takes advantage of the store's regularly discounted prices. A duo can fill a Publix cart for $50?$60 a week, including side dishes.
Born of founder Jane DeLaney's desire to feed her family stress-free dinners provisioned from an organized list without coupons, eMeals allows shoppers to spend more time at the table and less time wandering about the grocery store uttering monophonic 10th-century chants in dismay.
The staffers at Mattrezzz Guys, a discount outlet stocked with high-end sleep tools, bring 30 years of hands-on industry know-how, from manufacturing to retail, to the store’s selection of elastic memory-foam, natural rubber latex, and innerspring mattresses. Dedicated to local mattress makers, the store highlights Texas-made models from Sleep Designs, which come in 17 dream-ready designs. Slumber thrones from Simmons deftly catch clumsy sheep and prodigal z’s, cradling them atop plush or Euro Top surfaces that anchor bedrooms bedecked in the store’s selection of dressers, mirrors, and furniture. A five-year, no-cost warranty extension on all premium mattress-set acquisitions grants sleepers ample time to trick out their mattress into a working time machine or pillow vending machine.
In the eight years since the start of Local Furniture Outlet, the cherished baby business of Mr. Aaron Masterson has grown up fast?from a 2,000-square-foot metal warehouse to four locations and more than 80,000 combined square feet of furniture. But the success didn't go to Aaron?s head. The proud father still traverses showrooms in casual flip-flops, enforcing a no-competition policy so that loyal staff members don?t feel pressured to make a quota. The stripped-down showrooms allow for lower price tags on direct-from-manufacturer brands such as Ashley, Simmons, and Crown Mark. Patrons are invited to peruse dining-room, living-room, and bedroom sets?or ?kick the tires,? as Aaron puts it?without the pushy-push of larger retailers, who may use turkey legs to reward team members for sales.
Lights Fantastic brightens abodes with energy-efficient masterpieces from brands such as George Kovacs and Texas Fluorescents. The company’s two show rooms house more than 2,000 indoor and outdoor light fixtures that range from pewter chandeliers to bronze lanterns that keep vigil over gardens while pet fireflies rest their weary abdomens. Traditional bedside lamps cast a warm glow on book pages, and the blades of ceiling fans whirl in a delicate dance that circulates air throughout living rooms and dices ripened tomatoes in kitchens.
