Frugals winter 2016 edition

Brrrrr, it’s cold out there!  But the new Frugals edition is available, so grab one and cozy up next to the fire browsing all the awesome local money saving deals inside!

Starting on the front inside cover, Buchanan Subaru in Pocomoke has multiple money saving offers available, including a $45.95 detail special that’s perfect to help you clean off your vehicle after this lovely snow we’ve had.  Did I mention that they are Delmarva’s ONLY Subaru Stellar Care Award Dealer?
Turn the book over & on the back cover, you’ll find Mr Go Glass has 3 offers.  Don’t forget, they’re not just for vehicles, they also do patio doors, shower doors, doggy doors and custom mirror installations.

Getting healthy is probably one of the most popular New Years resolutions I can think of.  Well, that doesn’t always mean dieting and exercising at the gym (although those things certainly don’t hurt!).  For many, it means beating their addiction.  Hudson Health Services in Salisbury is a private, non-profit (NOT government run) substance abuse treatment center that offers detoxification, intensive inpatient care, partial day hospitalization, and supportive housing, all provided on their tranquil, lakeside campus.  See their ad on page 5 for more details.  Maybe it’s diabetes that you or someone you know is struggling to get in check.  Somerset County Health Department has a diabetes prevention program that is FREE!  For more information, check out page 3.  I mentioned the gym a few sentences ago…New You Gym in Princess Anne is offering NO sign up fee ($35 savings) when you present the coupon found at the bottom of page 23.  The Health Store & More in Salisbury has a wide variety of health-related items, such as local honey, organic and gluten free foods, probiotics and even essential oils!  Use the coupon on page 16 to save $3 off your total purchase of $15 or more!  So many people hesitate to go to their doctor because of the limited availability of appointment slots.  At McCready Health Immediate Care in Princess Anne, you don’t have to worry about that since there’s no appointment needed, and they open at 6am Monday through Saturday!  See page 22 for address and more details.  Looking to protect the crawl space, basement or foundation of your home from moisture?  Call DryZone  for a FREE, no obligation inspection and don’t forget to redeem the coupon on page 9 when you schedule your job.  Do you know someone who’s hard of hearing or already wears a hearing aid?  Call Audio Advantage in Salisbury for a FREE hearing test and a no obligation trial of new hearing aids.  Check out page 18 for more information and their contact number.
