While shopping at Target in New Hartford, are you taking advantage of this lifehack hidden right in plain sight?

Long lines can always aggravate you around the holidays. It can turn you from happy and joy, to the man standing in line in the song "Christmas Shoes" from Newsong very quickly. I want to let you in on a little secret while shopping at Target in New Hartford.

Is this life changing? Maybe. Is it something that's pretty obvious? Maybe. Is it something RIGHT at the FRONT of the store? Yes, to that too.

When you look at the cash registers at Target, you notice all the self-checkout lines to the far right. Hidden right by the doors of the store, you'll see a bonus selfcheck-out. Yes, a bonus one, that you're able to skip long lines and head right towards. It's been there for God knows how long too.

This hack was discovered after sitting in line for far too long. It's right up front of the store, right next to where the café used to be/where the order to go orders are located. Every time this author has shopped at Target the last two weeks, I've never noticed anyone using it. While others waited in line for ever, this author was able to sneak right past everyone. You can shop like a boss, and skip the long lines.

Again, bonus selfcheck-out right in the front of the store. Share with your friends, and change the world one register at a time.

Photos Of Sylvan Beach Amusement Park's Huge Exciting Restoration

One of Central New York's classic staycation destinations has to be Sylvan Beach, and the Sylvan Amusement Park. 

The Sylvan Beach Amusement Park was forced to close its doors in 2020 due to COVID-19. During that time, they took advantage of no guests and started a number of  restoration projects. After the park closed for the 2021 season, the restorations have continued. Here's some of the photos of things to look forward to in the 2022 season.
