Everyone I know is going to be having parties or cookouts this weekend. Let me help you save time and money when you fill the coolers.

I always hated going out to get ice that we needed for a party or picnic. Unless you are going to the grocery store and can throw some in the cart with other things, it’s more of a hassle than anything else.

If you go to a gas station, they give you a key that is attached to an 8-foot 2 x 4 piece of wood. So, you have to get the key, go out and get the ice, bring the ice and key back in and then pay. There goes a half hour of your day just to get some ice.

Well, I found these machines in Binghamton and I love them. They are ice vending machines. It’s cheaper than any other place that I have found, and it is super convenient. The machines are on Market Street in Binghamton.

And, if you want you can just put your cooler right underneath the machine and not use a bag.
