These cars are all under $5,000.
If you’re looking for a great new ride to get your day started off just right, we’ve got some vehicles being sold right around the corner. We've talked about saving gas money, the expenses aligned with vehicles and all the extras that come associated with that perfect vehicle. But we feel a little bad for recommending spending so much money all the time. So this week, we want to take a step back and go to the extreme by offering five options for used vehicles that are on the market for less than $5,000—because we know sometimes it really is "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems." 1. 2001 Kia Sephia — Used — $1,997 From Cars.com: Yes, it has 67,986 miles on it already, but you can't really beat that price for a vehicle.

Crumbs Bake Shop brings twists on classic cupcake flavors.
Frozen yogurt, ice cream—and now the Bridgewater Commons Mall has added cupcakes to its list of confections. Crumbs Bake Shop officially opened its doors April 5, bringing its decadent cupcakes that are larger than your average treat. “Our signature cupcake is about 1.5 times the size of a regular store-bought cupcake,” said Quinn Solomon, publicist for Crumbs. “However, we do have a regular size cupcake, ‘our classic,’ and a small size, our ‘taste size.’” The business, which officially opened in 2003, boasts three signature, and most popular, cupcakes, Solomon said.

Sharpe's new job and DiMarco's birthday highlight this week's episode.
This week's episode of "Jerseylicious" was broken down into two very different pieces—a mid-life crisis at age 25 and moving forward with a new career. Part of the episode focused on Montville High School graduate Olivia Blois Sharpe's new gig at Bergen.com, as she began to learn the ins and outs of being a tv stylist.

"I was really excited to do my own haul, but I was a little worried about making it up to par," Sharpe said in the "Jerseylicious" style blogs. "When you're asked to talk directly to a camera, and you have to think carefully about what …
