This year El Niño fooled us with a mild, spring-like start to the winter! Filled with hopes that we could coast through the season with the simple pleasures of light jackets and walking outside, that dream froze to a halt when once again, subzero temperatures quickly rushed in and winter was upon us.
This season can make our day-to-day lives of running errands and commuting to work unbearable. Fear not, we’ve rounded up the best ways to avoid the polar vortex struggles! From groceries to dry cleaning, these new apps will have you covered so you can stay cozy and warm indoors.
