Grocery Surcharges

Technology has made our lives easier in every way possible but even in 2018 there are parts of lives that still need to catch up. While I am at times an early adopter of many platforms/gadgets/processes there are some things I still prefer to keep old school. For example, I still enjoy reading a book […]
