According to the International Housewares Association, the average U.S. household spends around $614 per year on housewares.

“We have reached a time when people not only want and need a good deal, but are using technology to actively seek one out,” explains Braden Richter, the chief executive officer of www.LuxeYard.com (OTC BB:LUXR), an online member site that offers discounts on housewares. “The deals are certainly around, for those who take the time to seek them out.”

Attn NoVA/DC/MD High School Students + Parents :: Prom Confidence Event + Giveaway on March 24th

On Saturday, March 24, local merchants and activists for young people will come together to make some prom dreams come true for teenagers in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. The group previously hosted makeovers with local teens, including the one featured in the video above of Nailah Phillips, a sophomore at Heritage HIgh School in Leesburg. Perhaps the best part about these makeovers is that the team bases its prom and homecoming events not only on making over the outside, but on reminding teens first, to see and appreciate their strengths, and second, to know that each is truly special.
