Save a Buck or Two this Month. It's All About Value!

When downers like punishing prices at the pump and looming tax deadlines threaten to cramp our style, heed the advice from Monty Python to "always look on the bright side of life." To help you achieve this positive state of mind this month, we have themed our newsletter around this budget-friendly buzzword: value!

This means that even if the IRS is eating a hole into your wallet, you can still enjoy dining out. Simply make reservations at one of the best Value Restaurants near you. For more thrifty meals, check out our lists for the top cheap eats near you as well as best burgers, pizza, food trucks and more!

There's also no need to scrap travel plans. Peruse our travel specials for savings on juicy getaways, and find well-priced accommodations with plenty of perks via our lists of the Top 10 Value Hotels in the U.S., Top 10 Value Hotels Worldwide and even Top 10 Value Spas. These include Hotel St. Augustine in Miami, which proves that it's not necessary to spend big bucks to mingle with the beautiful people; Coco Palm Resort on St. Lucia, which offers everything your sun, surf and sand vacation in the Caribbean should be — minus the hefty price tag; and Febri's Spa in Bali, where options start at $30. Additional spa savings can be enjoyed during Spa Week, where pricy treatments like microdermabrasion and full-body massages cost just $50 at spas across North America and Canada.

You'll find some of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean in Martinique

To help you see the glass as half full, we've also compiled the Top 10 Wines Under $10, Top 10 Value Wines and even Top 10 Value Champagnes (and these are all true Champagnes!). Don't drink and drive, but do peruse the Top 10 Value Automobiles. Our auto section also features our Car of the Month, the nifty Chrysler 200 and the Top 10 Small SUVs.

Money issues aside, this month many of us celebrate Easter and all the egg-centric fun that entails. Find out where to enjoy Easter Brunch in your area, learn about the health benefits of eggs and check out our recipe for asparagus frittata with tomatoes and feta. If you love to cook, you might also like our brand new list of the Top 10 Cookbooks of all time. Julia Child? Check. Find out who else made the cut.
