Rudsak Canada: 74% Off Cash Booties – Now $60 (+ 35% Off Plenty Of Other Boots & Booties)

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Rudsak Canada: 74% Off Cash Booties   Now $60 (+ 35% Off Plenty Of Other Boots & Booties)

These boots are made for walkin’! Take advantage of Rudsak’s extremely limited time promotion to get the Cash booties for 73% off their original price of $225. This week-end only, you can get these booties for just $59.99. There are plenty more discounted boots and booties to pick from as well.

The only drawback is that shipping is at a flat rate of $9.99, unless you shop for over $200, which will automatically qualify your order for free shipping. But even with this charge, the deal on the Cash booties is still a pretty awesome one considering that the lining is made entirely from leather, as all of the other available boots and booties are as well.

I wouldn’t normally be a fan of fringe on a pair of boots but I actually do like it on the Cash booties as they add a boho touch to a classical look. Despite the blaring temperatures of summer, I love wearing a pair of boots with jeans shorts (particularly a pair of Steve Madden boots that I have and adore) and I could definitely see myself doing so with these boots. Although if they didn’t have the fringe, then I definitely wouldn’t wear them in such a way as they would have too much of a classical kind of style for me.

My next pick for boots to wear in the summer would be the Jeanie ones, especially since they resemble the ones I already do wear. Originally priced at $215, they’re on sale for just $84.99 and also feature a  full leather lining. These one actually look more summer-appropriate as well as they feature a mesh kind of material around the ankle.

Rudsak also has a couple of winter boots to choose from, such as the Begonia on sale for $199.99 (reg. $245). I know you may be thinking why on earth would you buy a pair of boots smack dab in the middle of summer but as it turns out, it’s much friendlier on the wallet to shop out of season than it is to shop in season. In this case, the Begonia boots feature a leather and nylon make along with rabbit fur over-top for increased warmth. Given how slushy our Canadian winters get, I also really like that the nylon covers the shoe part of the boot to ensure that feet stay dry.

Keurig Canada: $4 Off Every 2 Boxes Of Flavoured K-Cups

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 10:30 PM

Keurig Canada: $4 Off Every 2 Boxes Of Flavoured K Cups

Join Keurig’s Festival of Flavours and save $4 off when you purchase 2 boxes of flavoured coffee k-cups. The great part about this promotion is that it applies to every two boxes of flavoured k-cups you buy, which means that if you buy 4 boxes, then you will save $8 etc.

I drink so much coffee in a day that I buy my k-cups in bulk either at Costco or when promotions such as these roll around at Keurig.ca. The way I determine whether a deal on k-cups is good enough or not is I divide the price by the number of k-cups included in the box and I only buy the box if it comes down to under $0.60 for each k-cup. At grocery stores, the price per individual k-cup usually hovers around $0.75, although very rarely I have seen it dip to about $0.65. I know we’re talking pennies but every penny counts when it comes to these, especially if like me, you can easily drink more than three cups of coffee per day.

With Keurig’s promotion, you can get a k-cup for as low as $0.57. Keep in mind that the regular price won’t apply to any order and instead, the member price will always be calculated into any order. This is because you automatically become a member when you sign up to their site as membership is absolutely free. Even better is that you earn points for completing orders, which can then be redeemed for free stuff.

My favourite k-cups are definitely any the includes vanilla, be it Van Houtte’s French Vanilla or Timothy’s French Vanilla. The last time that I placed an order on Keurig.ca, I also added Timothy’s Kahlua Original to try for the first time and I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. It has an extremely powerful smell that can be detected just by giving the box itself a whiff, but it tastes great. In fact, here’s what someone had to say about it:

Definitely my ultimate favorite. I usually love dark roasts, but this just hits the spot. I drink my coffee black, and this is a great, smooth blend.

All of the k-cup flavours mentioned above come down to $13.71 per box.

Plus, shipping is at an easy to reach minimum threshold of $45. With the exception of Christmas-time, every time that I have ordered from Keurig.ca, my order came surprisingly quick as well.

Purl Mama Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 9:30 PM

Purl Mama Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

Usually Purl Mama only releases coupons on specific items or for a small discount like 10% off, but this time, they have released a code for 20% off everything at their site! So be sure to take advantage of it while you still can, though there is no word on when this awesome promotion will end.

Click here to shop @ PurlMama.com now

  • Coupon Code:  SUMMER20
  • Discount:  20% off
  • Expiry:  Unknown

As it turns out, the picture above has been one of Purl Mama’s trendiest pins on Pinterest because of the little triangle wall decals. Priced at $22, you can get a pack of 30 triangles for just $17.60. They’re self-adhesive and come in either black, white, bright yellow, sweet lavender, fresh mint or lovely pink. I’m sure all of these colours would look great in any nursery but personally, I would love to combine two triangle into a bow tie for a little boy’s room if I ever have one! But this would totally be an awesome idea for any of you expecting little boys or who are already proud mamas of one/ some! Purl Mama Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

This could also be a great opportunity to save on wallpaper as it would normally run anywhere from $92 to $232. Although I’m not particularly a fan of any of the cheaper fans, I do, however, love the dandelion fields wallscene, which would look nice in a little girl’s nursery. Originally priced at $232, it comes down to $185.60 for 4 panels measuring 2.44m x 2.7m and 4 rolls that are 61cm x 2.7cm. Even more interesting is that this wallpaper is custom made and shipped directly from England, which means it’s possible that certain duties or customs fees may apply.

All in all, Purl Mama has some really unique nursery and kids’ items available and their inventory is definitely worth a look. In fact, they also offer personalized art like a personalized name decal for $35, which you can get for $28. Plus, you can choose between 3 fonts, 6 colours and 6 illustrations, though for the last part, you can choose to have your little one’s name without the illustration as well.

As for shipping costs, these will depend on the items you order and the total weight but you can rest assured that Purl Mama will do everything they can to keep shipping costs as low as possible. For more Purl Mama coupon codes, keep an eye on the Bargainmoose forum.

Are you designing a nursery? Here’s an idea: hang up a pair of antlers in honour of your favourite site! Purl Mama Canada Coupon Code: 20% Off Everything

(PS4 & Xbox One) Pre-Order Batman: Arkham Knight For Just $57 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 9:00 PM

(PS4 & Xbox One) Pre Order Batman: Arkham Knight For Just $57 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

The dawn is coming and luckily, you can save a couple of bucks before it does. Batman: Arkham Knight is coming out in 2015 and for a limited time, you can pre-order it for just $56.99 at Amazon for either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Its regular retail price is of $69.99, which put this deal at a 19% discount. Plus, since Amazon offers free shipping to most orders over $25, you are also sure to get your game shipped at no additional cost!

One of the trendiest quote in the online community right now is: “Always be yourself! Unless you can be Batman, then always be Batman”. I couldn’t agree with it more and what better way to be Batman than by playing this iconic character on either PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One.

Keep in mind that although Amazon is displaying an October 2014 release for this game, this is inaccurate. Rocksteady’s marketing game manager recently released a statement saying that the release date has been pushed back to 2015, though he hasn’t specified when exactly, due to the fact that they want to make sure that the game is absolutely perfect. In fact, his exact words were: “we just want to make this the best experience that we can, and that takes time”, as published on Gamespot. Definitely can’t argue with that, though I’m sure all of you Batman fans are eagerly awaiting its release!

Given that the last Batman to be released on PlayStation, Batman: Arkham City, was a major success, I have no doubts that the upcoming one will be just as awesome, especially since it will be tailored to the new video game consoles. I haven’t tried Xbox One yet but I have recently invested in a PlayStation 4 and I must say that it is all it’s cracked up to be. The graphics are absolutely phenomenal and I’m definitely looking forward to giving the new Batman a whirl, simply to see the level of details that will be injected into the game. In fact, here’s a review I found on Arkham City on Amazon:

This game is by far the best game I have ever played I definitely recommend this game if you are a batman fan!!!

Have you played any of the previous Batman games? What are your thoughts on them?

Save Money On Summer Travel

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 8:00 PM

Save Money On Summer Travel

With gas prices at all time highs, people are sticking around for summer travel.  Many people (including me) are planning last minute close getaways and avoiding the trans-Canada road trips: 28% of Canadians are going to limit their summer traveling and enjoyment to $100 or less according to the Toronto Star.

Here are a few tips on how to save money on your next summer trip.

Choose Alternative Accommodation

I had trouble finding a place to stay during the long weekend because most motels and hotels were booked. The only accommodation on booking websites such as Hotels.com or Orbitz were expensive hotels that were hundreds of dollars a night. Alternative accommodation that is much more reasonable includes airbnb (check out the latest coupon codes for airbnb available on Bargainmoose here) and VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner).  Oftentimes if you can’t find what you are looking for in terms of dates, you can email the owner to see if there is availability and to see if they can accommodate your needs.

If possible, find accommodation that contains a kitchenette or simply fridge so that you can prepare your own meals and save money on dining out.

Plan your Meals

Speaking of saving money on dining out costs, like many things in life, organization is key.  If you are able to plan ahead with your meals, bring a cooler (if it is a short three to four day road trip) and buy groceries ahead of time, you will save a lot more money than if you ate out for your meals.  This of course is dependent on if you have accommodation that has a kitchenette.  If it does not have a kitchenette, see if you can get at least a fridge so you can put certain foods in the fridge, and it may help you skip spending money on a breakfast.  The Motley Fool blog recommends getting accommodation with a kitchenette as well so that you can cook and save money.

Make Sure Everyone Chips In

Of course if you are traveling with your immediate family you probably won’t need to utilize this app, but if you are traveling with friends or extended family or anything where you would want to keep a tally of who spent money on what, the best app to use for this is the Payback App.  It is easy to use and calculates exactly how much you owe your friends, and vice versa.  All you have to do is input who the people chipping in are, and then input the expenses, and press “It’s Payback Time!”  The best thing about it is that it is a free app, too!

Time it Well

US News suggests that you plan your summer holiday to avoid the long weekends.  Everything is more expensive (and booked up) on long weekends, including gas and accommodation (because available rooms will be more expensive).  They suggest that if you are going to travel on a holiday weekend, you should wake up early so that you can avoid traffic and therefore save money on gas. The less time you are on the road, the better for that tank of gas and the better for your psyche as well.

Get Organized

As mentioned earlier, organization is key. The Chicago Tribune has a great article on some must-have travel apps before you start your vacation. For example, CityMaps2Go allows you to look at the map for a city without having to use wifi.  Avoiding the roaming charges while trying to find the destination you are heading to will definitely save you money.  I often fall into this trap and have to turn on roaming data because I am lost.  Therefore, an app to help you with data loss is where the focus for donations should be targeted at. Another app that is very helpful is TripIt. This app allows you to organize your itinerary so you have access to it all in one convenient location. Instead of looking for emails or files, just access TripIt and you can have access to your itinerary, trip bookings, flight details, and even restaurant reservations.

Hopefully these five tips to save money on summer travel will be of use to you this summer or maybe even next summer.  Have a great summer everyone!

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite way to save money on your summer vacation?

Home Hardware Canada: Buy Online, Ship For Free To Store

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Home Hardware Canada: Buy Online, Ship For Free To Store

Home Hardware Canada now allows you to buy items online and have them shipped to your local store free of charge.

This new service started up in June and we consider it an improvement. Sure, it isn’t ship to your door service yet, but for the popular hardware store this is certainly a step in the right direction.

There are a few important things to note about this new setup. To see any prices you must enter your postal code and select your local store. Thus, prices may vary by region and from a blogging perspective, it is a pain to blog a deal because we would have to check across different provinces to see if it is the same price. From a customer perspective, this is not a problem at all. You want to know the price of what you can get for your local store.

Not all items are available in all regions and not all items are available to order online. There appears to be a few different categories of items on the Home Hardware website:

  • Available online and in-stores
  • Available in-store only. Contact your home store for availability.
  • Warehouse out of stock. Contact your home store for availability.
  • This product is not available in all areas. Check your local bylaws or ask in-store for details.

The last three all amount to not being able to order the product online. The last one is rather curious, as I found it on some rather powerful air conditioners. I expect city bylaws prevent the use of certain products due to noise level or power consumption.

Despite there being four different levels of availability, I did find many items available to purchase online. I am currently eye-balling this 2 Speed 10″ Window Twin Fan for $44.99 with a $1 EHF fee. I prop my fan in the window each night to bring in cool air, but I worry about it falling out. This dedicated window fan would be fantastic. For those curious, EHF stands for Environmental Handling Fee and is put on electronics by some provinces (not all). If you live in British Columbia, then you will most certainly see this small surcharge.

This offer really saves a person time. Instead of going in store just to find out that what you want is out of stock, you can instead order online and just go in for pick up when you know they have your item.

Well.ca: Free Gift With $40 Purchase

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 2:00 PM

Well.ca: Free Gift With $40 Purchase

Well.ca is offering a free gift with any order of $40 or more this long weekend.

Unlike their coupon codes, which cannot be combined with sale items, this offer can be combined with a cart full of items from the sale and clearance sections. The gift options will be displayed during checkout. I demoed a cart and had these to choose from:

You get to choose from one of these five items when going through checkout. I linked to them above so you can read reviews and the details of each product. I would go for the Weleda Calendula Baby Cream not only because it has the greatest value, but also because I have heard very good things about the Weleda line of natural products and more specifically about the Calendula formula. At the same time, I am somewhat curious about what would be in the bag of mystery samples.

I am a fan of Well.ca because they make shopping for household essentials easy. I don’t live in the biggest city (population under 100,000), so finding the brands I want at the price I am willing to pay is often no easy task. I watch Well.ca like a hawk and take advantage of their promotions.

Spending $40 on Well.ca is easy for me. This 25% off Sibu Beauty sale is just calling my name. I read a couple Canadian all natural beauty blogs, and one of my favourites called Naturalla Beauty did a review of the Sibu Sea Buckthorn Body Cream that is on sale from $17.99 down to $13.49. Caitie said:

I’ve been really happy with Sibu’s body cream!  It’s kind of the best of both worlds: rich and very hydrating, but also absorbs quickly into the skin without any stickiness or oily residue.  It feels great going on and I like knowing that I’m getting additional benefits, beyond those of an ordinary lotion, from all the sea buckthorn.  I also love that Sibu makes use of the entire berry here and includes not only the fruit and seed oils, but also whole, pureed berries. 

For such an inexpensive cream in the natural beauty world, I am pretty excited. It is on my wishlist of products to test out once I work my way through my current cream.

Well.ca offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Fluevog Canada: Free Shipping

Fluevog Canada is offering free shipping on any order with no minimum for three days only. Shipping at Fluevog is usually a flat rate of $16.

I had to buy something before I wrote this post up because it was the last of its kind in stock! I have mentioned before that my wallet is kind of dying (more like dead) and I was in need of a new one. Well, I bought myself a Fluevog wallet that was $125 full price, but on sale it only cost $59. With no shipping charges, it was an easy decision to snap the last wallet up. I would link to the pretty wallet, but sorry, they are all gone.

Usually I post about shoes, and I will certainly get around to a couple of shoe picks, but I wanted to mention accessories. Fluevog also makes bags and belts. Many of the belts are currently in the sale section.

If you like old country and western style, value good quality leather, and want a good deal, then pick up the Tucson Belt in either black or brown. Originally $125, the belt is now on sale for $39. The belt has John Fluevog embroidered on it with some bright embellishments.

If you are looking for a classic, no-nonsense black leather belt then the Jeremiah Belt is just the one for you. Originally $95, the belt is currently on sale for $39. It is just simple good quality black leather with a brass or nickel buckle.

For a belt with more flash and a summer feel, try the Prepare Belt in pastels. You can choose from fuchsia, yellow, or turquoise. Each belt features an outseam detail with a pewter finished belt buckle. Originally $125, these belts are on sale for $69 now.

This would not be a Fluevog post without a couple pairs of shoes. I highly recommend checking out the LoFs | Kaya. Three of the colours are on sale for just $99, down from $239. This durable, classic shoe will last you for years to come. It features the F-Sole, which I can attest to being amazing. I wear my F-sole Fluevogs almost every day (for over two years now) and they are still in amazing shape. The leather also stands up to wear really well. I highly recommend getting a leather conditioner for your leather goods once they start looking worn. It brings them back to life.

Walmart Canada: Bettona 10-Piece Sling Dining Set Now $200 (Was $498)

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Bettona 10 Piece Sling Dining Set Now $200 (Was $498)

Walmart Canada has launched a plethora of web crasher deals for the long weekend. While you may know this weekend by one of many names like BC Day, Saskatchewan Day, Heritage Day, or civic holiday, it does mean you can save a little extra on things you may have been eying up. Pick up the Hometrends Bettona ten piece Patio Set for only $200 at Walmart, saving yourself nearly $300 off the original price of $498.

This deal is pretty awesome. You are getting a full ten-piece set for only $200. That works out to only $20 apiece, which is unheard of for patio furniture. The set comes with:

  • Six chairs
  • One round dining table with smoked glass tabletop
  • One side table with matching smoked glass tabletop
  • Two ottomans

All the smoked glass is tempered for safety. The chairs are made of weather-proof, PVC-coated polyester sling fabric for comfort and durability. The frame is black and made of powder-coated steel so it is rust resistant. However, if you get scratches in the powder coating, it may rust as the outer shell has been penetrated. The fabric itself is a beige/grey colour, which fits in with most decor. I am not sure back yards even have a decor, but this set is simple enough to not compete with anything else you might have going on.

The chairs have a three-position back (adjustable!) so you can use them to sit up at the table, lean back a bit, or recline and stick your feet up. From the upright position, the chair backs recline 18.5cm in total. With six chairs, you can have a couple friends over without having to drag out your kitchen chairs for people to sit on.

There are many positive reviews of this set on Walmart.ca with most of those reviews coming from customers who bought this set for a higher price. This customer said:

Love it, best 300 bucks I ever spent, and it was shipped on time

Well, now this set can be the best $200 you ever spent. With free shipping to your door on such a large set, you most certainly won’t be regretting this deal.

As this is a web crasher deal, I do not expect it to last very long. Thus, you should order soon before it is no longer available and you have ‘sold out’ regret. I have experienced that a few times myself.

  • Coupon Code:  WEEKEND
  • Discount:  40% off all sale and clearance items, including shoes
  • Expiry:  4th August 2014

Club Monaco is known as an affordable luxury brand that is both sensible and modern.  They were founded in Toronto, making this brand a true Canadian classic!  I do find that Club Monaco’s prices are often more than I want to spend, but I love to get high quality items at a steep discount, so this sale really appeals to me.  I also tend to shop end-of-season for the following year, so I’m already thinking ahead to summer 2015!

The weekend sale is a real beauty, offering 40% off already reduced sale and clearance items for both men and women, including shoes.  New items have recently been added to the sale section, adding to the selection available.  Here are a few of my favourite items:

  • Women’s Adelina Skirt (was $139.50, now only $29.40).  A light pink jacquard pattern is chic and feminine, and fully lined.  I would wear this to a garden party with a pretty camisole.
  • Women’s Harper Linen Sweater (was $119.50, now only $47.40).  I love linen for a polished warm weather look.  The open knit details on this piece are really special.
  • Women’s Reid Suede Flat Espadrille (was $1393.50, now only $119.00).  A sophisticated flat slip-on that is fully leather lined.  A nice change from my every day ballet flats.
  • Women’s Saffi Dress (was $169.50, now only $47.40).  I love this dress so much!  It’s a one-shoulder silhouette with a ruffled neckline in crisp white.

Shipping:

Club Monaco offers free shipping on orders over $150.  Orders under $150 are charged a flat shipping rate of $8.

Garage Canada: Select Denim Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off

Are you in the market for jeggings?  If you are, this deal is for you:  buy one, get one 50% off on select Garage denim.

The grand majority of the jeans eligible for this sale are priced at $39.90, meaning you will get two pairs for $59.85.  The regular price of denim ranges from $34.90 to $44.90. On the Garage.ca site, just look for denim with a little pink “Denim – Buy one, get 1 50% off” quote underneath the qualifying items. While the selection of sale items is almost exclusively jeggings, there are lots of colours, styles and sizes to choose from.  The 50% will be taken off the item of lesser value at checkout.

Check out the Extreme Blue High Waist Jeggings ($39.90) for a great dark wash that wears really well with graphic tees.  They are a super skinny legging fit with real pockets for function.

I also really like the White Roller Jegging ($39.90) which sits at the belly button, perfect for wearing with a cute little crop top.  They are made with 2% spandex for a comfortable stretch.

While you’re shopping over at Garage, I recommend you check out their sale section for some great deals on other items as well.  Mark downs are currently as high as 70% off!  I found this great Graphic Fleece Muscle Tank for only $5 (reg. $22)!  This Slash Back Raglan Tee (was $16, now only $6) is making its way to me as we speak!  There are lots of awesome deals to be had, many of which would pair really well with the jeggings.

Shipping:

Garage offers free shipping on orders over $50, so if you’re taking advantage of this deal, shipping will be free.  Standard shipping is charged at a flat rate of $9 for orders under $50.  This sale is also available in store.

Canada’s Gift Baskets: Free Shipping With No Minimums

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Canadas Gift Baskets: Free Shipping With No Minimums

We want to introduce our Moosers to a great online store that is perfect for giving gifts to friends and family who live far away. Shop at Canada’s Gift baskets and you can get free shipping on all orders with no minimum charges.

If you are wondering why I think it is special for a company to give free shipping, it is not that rare. What is pretty rare is that a company which is not your typical clothing, electronics or beauty items company is giving free shipping.  This is pretty great actually. These types of companies, who specialize in gifts, almost always charge a base fee for shipping plus some extras.

Canada Gift Baskets offers baskets for chocolate lovers, spa lovers, baby gifts, tea & coffee lovers, birthdays, get well gifts and much much more.  In fact, there is a gift basket for every event, celebration or special occasion you can think of.

I have family spread out between three provinces and sending gifts for mother’s day, birthdays and other holidays can get quite pricey.  A lot of the time I have to resort to a gift card because it cost so much money to send a gift through mail nowadays.  This company is perfect for anyone like me who wants to send more than a gift card but who also wants to stay away from boring flowers.

I found the absolutely perfect gift for my dad here.  He is a snack lover and I know he would love this Snack Attack basket that was $104.99 and is now on sale for $83.99. It is a large sized gift basket that is packed full of sweet and savory snacks for someone to enjoy. I am actually getting hungry just looking at it! Even though this is one of the largest gift baskets that they offer, the cost of shipping is still free.

If you are looking for something a bit smaller, I know a few people who would love to get this Crabtree and Evelyn Avocado basket that was $79.99 and is now on sale for just $64.99. It comes with 12 different items packed into a beautiful basket. That means you would be paying just over $5 for each item at the sale price.  The baskets alone that the gifts come in sell for well over $15 at stores.

The next time you need to send a gift to a friend or family member, make sure to keep Canada’s Gift baskets in mind. Not  only do they have some incredible gift ideas, you will not have to pay a cent for the cost of shipping!

Home Depot Canada: Free August Workshops

Posted by on August 1, 2014 at 9:30 AM

Home Depot Canada: Free August Workshops

I can’t believe we are already in the month of August!  With a new month comes a new list of free Home Depot workshops for people young and old to take advantage of. This month, there are three different workshops to choose from, including one for kids.  Like I mentioned, all of them are free to attend and participate in, and they are a great learning activity and fun social time to meet other people with the same interests.

It seems as though there are less workshops in the summer months compared to the colder months.  I guess it must be because a lot of families are camping or traveling, and visiting friends and family. The three that they are offering this month, however, are all great!

Build a mini-crate pencil holder August 9th

  • At this workshop, kids will learn how to build a mini-crate pencil holder using a hammer and glue.  It is geared for kids ages four years old and up and all children must be accompanied by a parent.  It starts at 10am and it will run for two hours. This is a great activity for Mom or Dad to bond with their child at, and have fun at the same time.

Five simple projects to enhance your bathroom August 16th

  • This workshop starts at 10am and will last one hour. You will learn so many bathroom tips in this workshop.  Learn how to choose the ideal faucet to meet your bathroom needs, how to repair drywall, replace grout and ceramic wall tiles, how to choose lights that are appropriate for your bathroom space and much more.  A lot of the things you will learn in this workshop can be applied to other areas of your home such as the kitchen or laundry room as well, so it is a great free workshop to attend.

Painting touch ups and techniques August 24th

  • They actually offered this workshop last month as well. It will start at 1pm and last for just an hour.  It will teach you a variety of useful information to do with paint touch-ups and techniques.  You will learn how to paint ceilings, walls, and trim, you will learn how to prepare walls and other interior surfaces for paint, and many more tips and tricks.

All of these workshops are a great opportunity to build up those home improvement and DIY skills.  Some of them fill up pretty fast, so the best thing to do is book your spot ahead of time.

Tea Sparrow Canada: First Month Tea Subscription Only $8 (Save $12)

Tea Sparrow Canada: First Month Tea Subscription Only $8 (Save $12)

Tea Sparrow is a Tea subscription company where every month you receive tea delievered to you for a $20 monthly free. Try out this subscription service for only $8 for your first month (save $12) by clicking on the following link and entering the code teas.

The steps are simple:

  1. Click on link above
  2. Enter code “teas”
  3. Click subscribe (it says 60% off below)
  4. Pay with Paypal
  5. Enjoy!

If you do not want more than one tea box, make sure to unsubscribe before your next billing cycle when you would be billed the full $20 per month with free shipping across Canada. I just signed up for my $8 tea box because I drink a lot of tea and who can resist some awesome surprise teas for only $8?

What do you get:

The $20 per month regular fee includes all taxes and shipping. Per month you will receive a combination of four premium loose leaf teas. In total, you can expect to receive 35 to 40 cups worth of tea. Thus, your subscription works out to around 50 cents a cup of tea (taxes and shipping included). Every tea box includes a selection of both herbal and caffeinated blends. What teas you get will be a surprise, and that is the fun of it!

Why this is totally awesome:

I get in a tea rut. Frankly, it is hard to get out there to meet new teas. I have my favourites and I tend to buy them over and over again. Sometimes I will try something new, but usually I stick with what is tried and true. Tea Sparrow is like my own little tea dating service. It gives me four possible tea contenders to try out per month. As each sample is only enough for about 10 cups, it is like speed dating and not a committed relationship. I get to taste a bunch of teas I might have been too shy to try, without the commitment of an entire box or can.

How to end your subscription:

Pausing and restarting (maybe later) your subscription is easy. You can do so at any time by notifying Tea Sparrow before the first of the month you do not want to be billed for. If I do not want September’s box, then I have until August 31st to notify Tea Sparrow. Check out the details here.

I really hope some of our readers try this!

HP Canada Coupon Codes: Save Up To $100 On Computers

Tomorrow is the first day of August and I am sort of freaking out. For many families, that means one month until school starts up again. If your family needs a new computer, try out these coupon codes from HP Canada to bring down the cost of your next purchase.

Click here to shop @ HP Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 799SAVE
  • Discount: $40 off PCs priced $799.99+
  • Coupon Code: 999SAVE
  • Discount: $75 off PCs priced $999.99+
  • Coupon Code: 1199SAVE
  • Discount: $100 off PCs priced $1199.99+
  • Coupon Code: CLEARJULY
  • Discount: Additional 5% off clearance items
  • Expiry: 4th August 2014

While these are not substantial coupon codes, the percentage off does go up the greater the cost. There is also a 5% off coupon code to save you even more off clearance items, which can really help families on a budget.

In the clearance section, I found this HP Pavilion TouchSmart 11-e140ca Notebook PC on sale from $469.99 down to $399.99. It comes with the following:

  • Windows 8.1
  • AMD Dual-Core A4-1250 APU processor
  • 11.6″ diagonal HD LED-backlit touch screen (1366 x 768)
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 500 GB hard drive

This is just right for the average family computer that is not going to be used for heavy gaming. If the computer is mainly used for Facebook, homework, shopping, and chatting with friends then this computer will work well. Use the coupon code for clearance items to receive an extra 5% off. After coupon code, this computer comes down to $379.99.

You can also use the other coupons on clearance items if you meet the requirements. I found this HP Spectre x2 13-h210dx Detachable Tablet PC on sale from $1,149.99 down to $999.99. It is a really cool device where the keyboard separates from the top portion of the laptop to make a tablet. It has 4GB of memory and a 128GB solid-state hard drive. Now, if I just used the extra 5% off coupon code, the price would come down to $949.99. However, the $75 off $999.99 coupon code is a better deal, so I used it and the discounted price of this tablet PC comes to $924.99. In total, you are saving $225 off the original price.

There are other really good deals like this on the HP website. Be sure to choose the best coupon code for your purchase. HP offers free shipping on all orders, so there is no need to worry about extra shipping fees.
