Let’s face it, in today’s "need to stay connected world" there’s a whole lotta charging going on. I know I am forever running around looking for my chargers and wondering where I left my Blackberry and iTouch last.

I am not the most organized of souls all the time so I set out to find and neat and tidy way to keep all my charges in one place.

Enter The Crate and Barrel Charging Station. 

Nothing denotes our busy busy happy lives more than our handhelds; or is our tousled hair and mismatched socks when we shoot off the couch after taking a ‘power nap’ realizing we’re late for our turn at carpool pick up? Well, for under $40, your family can look as sleek as an FBI agent, or James Bond himself… or rather your cellphones and iEverythings can, at least.

So get your Crate and Barrel Charging Station and never hunt for your e-devices again.

This idea comes to you from the website BusyBusyHappy.com - an enlightened look at thriving in the burbs.  Check them out for more fun family ideas.

The Westchester County Department of Consumer Protection has just released the results of their December, 2009 market basket study. The market basket study assesses the price of 45 staples at a variety of area supermarkets to compare the cost of these items from store to store.  Items include staples such as milk, flour, pasta, peanut butter, juice, eggs and cereal.

Not suprising, Scarsdale comes out on top of the price list again, as we did in May, 2009.  The Gristedes comes in as the most expensive store of the ten surveyed but the good news is that the C-Town in Eastchester is among the least pricey places to shop.  The DeCicco’s in Ardsley also looks like a good deal so if the pricing is the same as the Scarsdale DeCicco’s store, there’s another good option.  The survey does not include specialty stores such as Balducci’s or Whole Foods – but it would be good to know how they weigh in to the mix.

Here is the tally – and check it yourself at http://www.westchestergov.com/consumer.htm

A&J Met Foods – New Rochelle        $126.23
A and P - Thornwood            $133.75
C-Town – Eastchester            $126.28
D’Agostino – Rye Brook        $156.38
DeCiccio’s- Ardsley            $134.14
Gristedes – Scarsdale            $164.78
Key Food – Pleasantville        $141.91
Pathmark – Mount Vernon        $131.96
Stop ‘n Shop – Cross County S/C    $123.71
Shop Rite – Cortlandt Manor        $113.20
