Preparing for COVID-19

Sharing is caring!

COVID-19 is THE TOPIC

I’m continuing on the Coronavirus mode because it is the topic that is dominating everyone’s thoughts and conversations. With Pesach (Passover) on the way people are very worried about their travel plans and everyone is very concerned about all the germs that may pass on Purim.

A Dime Saved
