Diet Plans.It's the middle of winter now but summer is just a few months away, making this the perfect time to kick start your diet. We found several good cheap diets that provide online or in-person support in the form of community reinforcement, meal planning and recipes, exercise regimens, educational materials, and access to dietitians. Alternatively, you can rely on a good diet book that provides a diet plan and the rationale behind it. Read our guide to learn about healthy diets and the importance of lifestyle changes to sustain the weight loss.
Dishwasher Deals.While dishwashers aren't the easiest products to find at a discount, we pinpointed a few good places to check. We found that dishwasher deals are best in the fall, right before the new product lines come out; there are also some good deals sites worth checking out if you're in the market. We recommend taking your time to find a good deal if you can bear to hand-wash in the meantime. Check out our dishwasher deals tips for more information on where and when to look.
Vacuum Deals.The best vacuum deals come around just before spring cleaning time. In addition to the old standby appliance stores such as Sears and Lowe's, we found deals at vacuum cleaner-specific sites and deals sites such as Deals.com
