The Internet is full of great resources. But page after page of search results can be too much of a good thing! So we've done the web surfing for you and created HabiLinks to help you navigate the road of life. Lifestyle topics cover everything from getting ready for baby to applying for Social Security. We include only sites we consider to be the best at what they do. They are not paid listings.

If you'd like to recommend a resource for the guide, or if a site falls short of your expectations, please contact us. And check back often. We monitor the listings continually, so our content will grow and change almost daily. That way we can be sure HabiLinks is one of the most helpful, informative and up-to-date directories on the Internet.

It's one more way Habitudes helps you through life, nicely done.
