Spring cleaning checklist by room
March 27, 2014
With vibrant flowers making their debut and warm rays of sun blanketing our yards, it’s time to give our homes the refresher it needs with some spring cleaning. Tackling a whole home’s worth of tasks can be a bit overwhelming, but cutting it down into a list of must-hit tasks, you’ll find taking it one room at a time is less demanding than you think. Head to the store and rack up necessary supplies (or use household items), put on your rubber gloves, and get set to clean! By Nadia Imafidon

This week marks the first one of spring, which means you should be preparing your wardrobe for warmer temperatures and (hopefully) sunny skies. Trends can be tricky when you’re shopping for the new season’s trends because some disappear, some stay relevant for a many years, and others last a hot minute
Mrs. Mass.: Come for the game, stay for the pickles
March 20, 2014
With basketball season in full swing, it seems only appropriate to visit one of the more popular Massachusetts Street spots to catch a game and eat some wings (or oysters/burgers/anything on the menu, really). Jefferson’s has been serving the Lawrence community since 2000, and they’re best known for their wings, oysters and fried pickles. If you’re jonesing for a hot meal, cold beer and lively atmosphere, Jefferson’s will treat you right.

Garden Variety: The right time to prevent crabgrass
March 20, 2014
Crabgrass preventers are herbicides. The germinating seed takes up some of the herbicide and is killed. These herbicides work well on the target crabgrass seed, but the same herbicide works on almost any other seed that is germinating during the chemicals’ effective life. You cannot apply crabgrass preventer and overseed your lawn in the same season.
