Think spring!

It’s March, and that means that spring is just around the corner!
With the spring equinox on March 20 heralding the return of spring, we’ve put together a great issue for you, packed with great articles, including tips from financial experts on how to spring clean your finances – setting up a will or a trust, as well as saving for retirement and tips for young adults on getting a handle on a budget.
We’ve also got some fun ways to attract more butterflies to your garden this year, and we’ve given you an inside look at some of the popular paint and decorating colors this year.
Check out Al Edenloff’s tips for purchasing wines on a budget and Crystal Dey’s intriguingly fresh celery drink.
There are several articles on staying healthy.
Of course, we didn’t forget about Easter ideas on dyeing eggs and egg hunts, as well as some great recipes for St. Patrick’s Day.
Local health experts give you tips on getting and staying healthy this spring, one crafty mom shares her favorite ideas to get children involved and a retired veterinarian gives his take on chickens as pets.
Round that all off with our favorite books, a humorous trip for a pedicure with Amy and Brandon Chaffins, and Jamie Kakach’s take on a personal humidifier in As Seen on TV, and our ever-popoular Real Chicz of Douglas County, and we’ve got you covered!
There’s something for everyone in this March/April issue of Chicz, so sit back and enjoy!

    Where can you pick up the magazine? The map won’t load on my phone and I don’t have access to a computer. I’m usually in the northern Alexandria and Brandon areas

    I have tried the Pumpkin crunch cake and enjoyed it much, so quick to do.

    I also tried the pumpkin pie and it is great especially the topping. All your articles are timely and useful as well as interesting. Phyllis Tucker, Alex
