Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95)

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95)

Looking for a new and better way to watch TV? Then grab yourself the Roku 3 as right now, you can get it for just $87.96 when you use Visa Checkout at Chapters Indigo. It’s usually priced at $109.95, so it’s a 20% discount. Shipping will also be free after Chapters Indigo ships orders over $25 for free.

It’s not the first time that we blog about the Roku but if it’s the first time that you hear about it, then all you need to know is that it’s basically a device that will allow you to stream TV shows and movies.

With it, you can completely get rid of your cable TV and subscribe instead to numerous channels that the Roku offers. In fact, there are more than 1400 to choose from but just keep in mind that some of these are paid subscriptions. For all of you hockey fans, you will be happy to know that there is even an NHL Gamecenter channel with live games, replays, and much more to keep you entertained throughout the year.

There are no reviews for the Roku 3 on Chapters Indigo, but PC Mag gave it a 4/5 stars rating with the following pros, cons and bottom line:

Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95)

As you can see from the pros, the Roku 3 includes a remote with a headphone jack for private listening and this is an exclusive feature to this generation of the Roku. The previous versions don’t include this and also don’t include the following features, which the Roku 3 now has: voice search, a remote that you can use to point anywhere and motion control for games. The other features are nearly identical to the Roku 2 but it’s the Roku 1 that appears to be the most outdated, so if I were you, I would definitely invest in the most recent one! Chapters Indigo Canada: Roku 3 2015 Just $87.96 With Visa Checkout (Reg. $109.95) Check out, for a quick reference as to all of the features between the available versions of the Roku.

What’s cool about the Roku though is that you can watch nearly all of the latest movies and TV shows really easily. There are of course plenty more, but to give you an idea, you could watch movies like Step Brothers, Hitch, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men Days of Future Part, Taken 2 or even Hangover II! Amongst others, you can watch TV shows like Family Guy, Hell on Wheels, The Shield, How I Met Your Mother etc.

The cheapest I  have found the Roku 3 anywhere else is actually at Staples, where it’s currently on sale for $99.97 and it’s sold out! So Chapters Indigo’s deal is definitely the best but just make sure to pay using Visa Checkout to benefit from the 20% discount.

FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit Was $50 | Now $25 + FS On $50 @

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 7:50 PM

FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit Was $50 | Now $25 + FS On $50 @

Are you looking to start saving more food? Start preserving your fresh items, frozen food, or pantry foods with this FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit from Walmart Canada. This kit would have normally cost you $50, but is on clearance sale for just $25. If you spend $50 or more you can have this item shipped directly to your home for free.

In my household it is just my son and myself. Often food is wasted because between the two of us, we just don’t eat it fast enough. I would love to have something like this FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit that is on sale for 50% off at right now. For just $25 you will get the Fresh Adapter and other accessories like the Heat-Seal rolls. Take a look at what is included in this FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit for just $25:

  • 6 FreshSaver Quart Zipper Bags
  • 6 FreshSaver Gallon Zipper Bags
  • 1 Fresh Adapter
  • 1 Bottle Stopper
  • 1 – 8″ x 20″ Heat-Seal roll
  • 1 – 11″ x 16″ Heat-Seal roll
  • 1 Lunch & Leftovers Container

The accessories sound great. I drink wine, but not by the bottle. The Bottle Stopper can replace the cork from your wine bottle. It also vacuum seals your wine to keep it fresh. I imagine this Bottle Stopper could work on expensive oils and such as well. The containers and zipper bags are great for deli meats, cheese and anything else really. They even prevent freezer burn which is so annoying. I hate taking a food out of my freezer to find out that it has been freezer burnt. Actually, it looks like the Heat-Seal rolls are even safe to throw in the microwave or simmer. I am impressed.

I could not find this FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kit for any less than $25 at other Canadian retailers. Take a look at the prices I found during my price comparison search:

It really is sad that took away their free shipping with no minimum purchase, but if you spend $50 you can still enjoy free shipping right to your door. Perhaps a friend or relative could use one of these FoodSaver Accessory Starter Kits as well? If you purchase two, you will have hit your free shipping threshold. Otherwise you could have it sent to your closest Canada Post office for free. If you are in the Greater Toronto Area you can opt to pick up  your purchase at a Grab & Go Locker in a Walmart Canada store near you.

Panasonic Eneloop 8xAAA Rechargeable Batteries: Only $20.99 @

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 2:13 PM

Panasonic Eneloop 8xAAA Rechargeable Batteries: Only $20.99 @

If your household is anything like mine, then you also go through A LOT OF BATTERIES. If you need to stock up on a few rechargeables, being friendly to the environment and all that, then check out the deal on these Panasonic Eneloops. You can get a pack of 8 triple As for only $20.99 at Amazon Canada!

If you have Amazon Prime, then you’re all set to get these Panasonic BK-4MCCA8BA Eneloops with free Canadian shipping to your home. If you aren’t a Prime member, then you only have to top up your order by another $4.01 to achieve the $25 free shipping minimum threshold. That’d be very easy to do. Panasonic Eneloop 8xAAA Rechargeable Batteries: Only $20.99 @ Whenever I need a filler item, I am always buying things for my girls on Amazon, such as hair accessories, barrettes and hair ties.

The shipping is a tad slow on these Eneloop batteries, it says 4 to 6 weeks, so don’t order them if you are rush. However, if you don’t mind a bit of a wait, then give it a shot.

The “was” price on these batteries is $26.99 and the “now” price is $20.99. That doesn’t seem like a huge discount but this is a really good final price for this type of rechargeable battery. Elsewhere, you would be paying $25 plus shipping @ NCIX, $35 @ Dell, the prices hover around that level.

A few stats about these batteries:

  • You can recharge nearly 2100 times
  • They maintain up to 70% of charge after 5 years (when not in use)
  • 800mAh type, 750mAh min, Ni-MH pre-charged rechargeable battery
  • Pre-charged at factory using solar power & ready to use
  • No memory effect – batteries can be recharged when discharged

Some of these are the reasons I love Eneloop batteries and I have about 30 of them in my battery drawer! Over the last few years, I’ve been stocking up when I see deals like this, as you really cannot have enough rechargeable batteries. It’s the kids – the toys that they get. There are so many that need batteries! My 5 year old daughter recently got a barking dog thingy, and it took 5 batteries in the dog and 2 in the remote. What a battery hog!

Hush Puppies Promo Code: 62% Off Elfie Heels + EXTRA 60% Off With Promo Code – Now Just $20 *HOT!*

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 1:00 PM

Hush Puppies Promo Code: 62% Off Elfie Heels + EXTRA 60% Off With Promo Code   Now Just $20 *HOT!*

Need new shoes for the summer? Here’s your chance to save big: use the promo code below to save a whopping 60% on your entire order at Hush Puppies. Amongst plenty more discount, the Elfie heels could be yours for just $20 instead of their $49.99 (reg. $130) sale price tag.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: HPFF15
  • Discount: 60% off
  • Expiry: 1st June 2015

The last time that Hush Puppies offered a 60% discount, I took advantage of it and ordered a pair of sandals and two pairs of casual shoes for my hubby. We were floored by the amount of money we saved at checkout and were even happier when we received our order because unlike some other shoe stores that frequently offer discounts, Hush Puppies shoes are very well made. I have been wearing my sandals nearly every day since getting them and I don’t see them getting worn out any time soon!

Hush Puppies Promo Code: 62% Off Elfie Heels + EXTRA 60% Off With Promo Code   Now Just $20 *HOT!*

The Elfie heels, for instance, right away caught my attention, especially since you can get them in either ivory, black, pink or blue, but sizes are limited. They were originally priced at $130 but are currently on sale for $50 and come even further down to just $20 — wow, that’s essentially 85% off the original price!

The very best part about this Hush Puppies promotional code is that you can use it on absolutely any order. There are zero restrictions with regards to regularly-priced or sale merchandise, so I suggest that you first hit up the outlet section for even bigger discounts, but don’t be too disappointed if they don’t have your size!

In the men’s outlet section, I spotted the Leroy shoes on sale for $49.99 (reg. $130), which means they come down to just $20 as well. They’re available in either dark brown or black.

They don’t have any handbags on sale but I had a look around in the new arrivals and found the super cute Maria crossbody bag priced at $70. With the promo code, it comes down to just $28, which is a phenomenal price to pay for a bag from this store!

Since shipping is at a flat rate of $9.99 per order no matter how much you shop for, I suggest that you really get the most bang out of your buck by asking friends or family members if they want to split the fee. It’s not the biggest shipping fee but it would still be better to lessen it by splitting it! Returns are free.

East Side Mario’s Coupon: Free Mini Mario Meal

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 12:30 PM

East Side Marios Coupon: Free Mini Mario Meal

Head into East Side Mario’s this week with this printable coupon and you’ll be able to feed your little rugrats for free. For every meal you buy (with a minimum price of $13.95), you’ll get a free Mario Mini Meal, valued at $5, or $5 off a $10 meal.

This coupon is valid for dine-in only and is not valid on tables with more than 10 children. That means the Duggars are out of luck. For someone like me, with three children, I find that kid’s meals can still be too large for my younger kids, so they share one anyway. I could take my kids out this week and just pay for my husband and I to eat and the kids will eat free.

The kids also have to be 12 and under.

I like taking the kids to East Side Mario’s because I find it loud there, so my kids loud talking, fighting and whining about when the food will come is oblivious to the other diners. There is also quite a bit on the menu that they like, because all of my kids will actually eat pasta.

Mario meals are cool because they include quite a bit:

  • meal
  • drink
  • dessert
  • activity book with crayons
  • toy

While I wouldn’t say their menu is stellar cuisine, there are options on there you know kids will eat, like dino buddies, pogos, pizza, grilled cheese soldiers and more. The dessert is your choice of a brownie or three mini ice cream cones. What I like about the mini ice cream cones is that I can steal one! I’m usually too full for dessert but it gives me that little bit of sweetness after dinner.

The coupon expires on Sunday and usually these coupons will say Sunday to Thursday only, but this one doesn’t. That means you can actually go out on a Friday or Saturday night and get a kids eat free deal. Tuesday all kids meals are already $2, so you might not want to go that night, as that is a great deal in itself as well. They also have some very cool drinks that kids will love and I remember liking going there as a kid because of the drinks. Maybe I still go there for that reason East Side Marios Coupon: Free Mini Mario Meal

5 Surprise Tees For $25 (Was $50!) @ Jack Of All Trades Clothing With Promo Code *HOT!*

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 11:50 AM

5 Surprise Tees For $25 (Was $50!) @ Jack Of All Trades Clothing With Promo Code *HOT!*

Holy cow! If you love or your hubby love superhero shirts, then here’s a hot gem of a deal that you won’t want to pass up on! You can usually get 5 surprise t-shirts for $50 but right now, you can use the code below to bring the price down to just $25. That’s a “5 for $25” deal, instead of the regular $50!

Click here to get a surprise pack of shirts @ now

  • Coupon Code: SURPRISE25
  • Discount: 5 surprise shirts for $25
  • Expiry: 1st June 2015

At Jack of All Trades, most t-shirt usually go for $25 and this isn’t counting any kind of sales or discounts. As I already mentioned, the surprise pack of shirts promo usually includes 5 t-shirts for $50, which comes down to $10 per shirt. With the aforementioned Jack of All Trades Clothing promo code, however, you’re looking at getting each shirt for just $5!

That is actually really quite awesome if you’re a fan of these shirts or know someone who is. There is only one downside but it’s to be expected with such a fantastic sale. With regards to the men’s surprise pack of shirts, only the S, M and L sizes are available and for women, only the S, M, L or XL sizes are left.

Notwithstanding this little hiccup, the selection of sizes left is still a pretty good one but just don’t wait until the last day to use the code as sizes may just sell out super quick.

Granted, you don’t know which shirts you will be getting but at $5 a pop, does it even really matter?

For the men’s one, there are 4 reviews with a total rating of 3.5/5 stars. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about this surprise pack:

Everything is great thanks

Short and to the point, so here’s another one:

Didn’t expect all of the designs to in my liking. So 50% is better than expected.

So it’s a toss up: you may either love it all, hate it all or love it partially, but are you willing to take the risk? I am!

Shipping is at a flat rate of $5 but if you shop for over $60, then it will be free.

Canadian Freebie: TRESemme, Nexxus & Dove Hair Care Sample Kit From Shoppers Drug Mart (EXPIRED)

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Canadian Freebie: TRESemme, Nexxus & Dove Hair Care Sample Kit From Shoppers Drug Mart (EXPIRED)

I love having freebies shipped right to my door. Right now, you can get a free hair care sample kit from Shoppers Drug Mart full of great freebies. Fill out the form and a free sample kit will be sent to your house soon.

Shopper’s Drug Mart has a nice little freebie kit on their page right now that includes several different brands of hair care products. This kit includes hair care products from TRESemme, Nexxus and Dove. I noticed the drop down box for the province was acting a little weird, but after a few tries it stayed on the correct province. Once I submitted the form, I received a confirmation page that said the sample should arrive in four to six weeks.

This offer is unfortunately not available for Quebec residents. Sorry Quebec, I even double-checked on the Pharmaprix website to see if this freebie might be available on your version of Shopper’s Drug Mart, but it was a no go.

On the sample page, it does not specify exactly what we will be receiving. There is a product feature page, and based on what is featured I would assume we are receiving samples of the following products:

  • Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner
  • TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo
  • Nexxus Maxximum Super Hold Finishing Spray
  • Dove STYLE+CARE Frizz-Proof Cream-Serum

This is a nice mix of products, and I am interested in trying all of these items for summer. I find I do need to switch up my hair care routine, as I tend to do a beach style waves more often in the summertime. On top of that, chlorine from the pool dries my hair out a bit. I am also curious about the dry shampoo in particular. If you are looking for some summer hairstyle ideas, click on the header Your To ‘Do List. You will see examples of some quick and easy summer hairstyles, including directions on how to do them in your own hair. I might have to learn how to do a quick rope braid in my long hair until I chop it off and donate it later this summer.

There is also a deal at the bottom of the page for Shoppers Optimum Points Members. If you purchase three Unilever products, you will receive 1500 bonus points right now. If you needed to replenish a few bath products, now might be the time to rack up a few extra Optimum points.

Foxy Jeans Canada: Exclusive 30% Off Regular Priced Items

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Foxy Jeans Canada: Exclusive 30% Off Regular Priced Items

Introducing you to another Canadian store, you’ll want to check out Foxy Jeans. Based out of Montreal, Foxy Jeans has a team of talented designers who create innovative designs, so you know the clothing you purchase from them will be unique! They also offer a fairly standard free shipping threshold of $50, and have a nicely full sale section. We’ve got a 30% off exclusive coupon, that will get you a discount on anything that is not already on sale on the site.

Click here to shop @ now

  • Coupon Code: FOXYMOOSE
  • Discount: 30% off
  • Expiry: 30th June 2015

Because this coupon is on regular priced items, I like to look at the new arrivals to see what new styles I can pick up with a 30% discount. I need a new pair of jeans and these 5-pocket skinny jeans with a saddle stitch are hot! Regularly $69.99, after coupon the price comes down to $48.99. Typically, good quality, well-designed jeans are going to cost you upwards of about $80 to $100, so getting a sexy pair like these for less than $50 rocks!

Because I’m just short of free shipping total, I also added this adjustable strap tank with front chiffon detail to my cart. This top is insanely sexy without showing too much skin. I like that the straps are adjustable so you can position that V in the most appropriate way. This top will look great with the jeans. Regularly $29.99, in my cart it comes down to $20.99.

If there is one item of clothing you want to be unique from everyone else, it could be your swimwear. You really don’t want to be on the beach comparing how you look to someone else in the exact same swimsuit. Foxy Jeans has some great swimsuits, pretty much for every type of body and they come in mix and match styles. I absolutely adore this push-up bra top for the simple reason that it doesn’t look like a push-up. It looks like all that’s holding you up is strings. Regularly $44.99, you’ll get this top for $31.49.

Chapters Indigo Canada: timi & leslie Kate 7-Piece Diaper Bag Was $180 | Now $128 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Chapters Indigo Canada: timi & leslie Kate 7 Piece Diaper Bag Was $180 | Now $128 & Free Shipping

Get the “it” diaper bag at Chapters Indigo this week! Get $20 off the timi & leslie diaper bags, plus another 20% when you use Visa Checkout. The one I found the most intriguing is the Kate 7-piece bag, which was $180, on sale for $160 and with Visa Checkout will come to $128. You’ll of course get free shipping as your order is over $25.

Here’s something I didn’t know: you don’t need Visa to check out with Visa Checkout! You can use other forms of payment like MasterCard and American Express. I hadn’t realized this and was dismissing all these deals because I have a MasterCard and not a Visa and I don’t want you to lose out like I may have! This means that as long as you are using a credit card, you’ll get this extra 20% off using Visa Checkout!

Now, let me tell you about these diaper bags. This is no ordinary bag. It is incredibly stylish, so you don’t feel like you are sacrificing style because you’ve got to carry diapers, bottles, snacks and everything else that comes with a child under four years old. But, instead of just carrying a purse or another favourite bag, it is also practical for carrying baby’s items, so it is much more intuitive than your coach bag. One of those features is a water-resistant lining, which means when that sippy cup spills, you won’t be wrecking your bag. It also has an insulated bottle tote, so you can warm that bottle and keep it warm inside the bag. A zippered sac makes sure those poop-splosions don’t get on your personal items. It also has stroller straps so you don’t have to lug it around, especially when you know you’ll be pushing a stroller while carrying a screaming bag. It’s true, it happens.

I priced around for this Kate bag and I found this deal at Chapters Indigo by far beats the competition. Amazon sells a great number of timi & leslie bags and Chapters Indigo has them beat on every bag. The Kate bag, while a different colour than what Chapters Indigo sells, sells for $179.99.

Charlie could also be a popular bag with its simple, but gorgeous style. Regularly $170, on sale for $150, you’ll get it for $120. Amazon sells that bag for $169.99. There are two colours available at Chapters Indigo.

What’s great about these bags is that you don’t just have one or two styles to choose from, there are a number of styles for every different person’s look and feel. You could even get two if the mood strikes so that you have a different look, like one light colour and one darker colour.

If you need another reason as to why to buy these bags, check out this video on how cool they are!

Save 65%! Keds Polka Dot Mirirawiel Were $50 | Now $17.49 (FS @ $50) @ Globo Shoes

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 9:18 AM

Save 65%! Keds Polka Dot Mirirawiel Were $50 | Now $17.49 (FS @ $50) @ Globo Shoes

Give your feet an extra boost of cuteness with these Ked Mirirawiel shoes. These shoes were $49.99 and are on sale for $24.98. Use the coupon code FF30 to receive an extra 30% off and the price drops to only $17.49!

Globo is offering an extra 30% off everything, which means it is a great time to shop. I was browsing through the clearance section and found these cute Keds on sale. I recently discovered that somehow all of my slide on shoes for summer have fallen apart. I have sandals, but I need at least one pair that covers my toes for those times when I should have fixed the polish on my toenails. These cute Keds over at Globo would be perfect for me. They would easily pair with capri pants or shorts for casual outfits.

The polka dots are a nice touch. One of my best friends tells my daughter that “polka dots are all the rage,” so she has wanted lots of polka dotted clothes lately. My daughter will be thrilled I am wearing polka dots too. You can choose between navy or red shoes with white polka dots. Both are so cute, I might just grab both pairs. Here is the current sizing available:

  • Navy: 8, 9, 9.5, 10, 11
  • Red: 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 10

There is one review on these shoes, and she seems very happy with her purchase. Check out her response below. This review is what sold me that these shoes are an awesome pair of summer casual shoes.

I bought a pair in navy in 2013 and I just bought a red version in 2014. I wore them every day and mostly without socks during the summer and that used up the interior a bit more quickly than it should. They are a bit long in the front. Love them and will be buying in many other colours.

I like that she mentioned she wore these shoes regularly without socks, as that is how I will wear them. With such a positive review, I think I should be safe from the blisters that sometimes happens without socks.

I found very similar Keds to these with stars, not polka dots, on ShoeMe, selling for $55, so you know this is a good deal for a quality brand of shoe.

Shipping is free automatically if you spend $50, so throw a few pairs in your cart to take advantage. I might grab both colours for myself. If your total is under $50, shipping is a very reasonable $5 for your order. The coupon code expires very soon, so shop now.

Amazon Canada: Brother Wireless Colour Inkjet All-In-One Printer Was $180 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 25, 2015 at 8:03 AM

Amazon Canada: Brother Wireless Colour Inkjet All In One Printer Was $180 | Now $70 & Free Shipping

Amazon’s got a hot deal today only, if you are looking for a new printer. Get the Brother wireless colour inkjet all-in-one with scanner, copier, fax and printer for only $69.99, with a regular price of $179.99. This deal ends in 19 hours from right now, so buy, share and do a silent fist pump.

I’ve been really meaning to get my own printer for my home office. I actually don’t even have a printer connected to my computer so if I need anything printed, I will email my husband to print it for me, which is a complete pain. For $70, I can stop that hassle!

There are so many features available for this printer like:

  • fast print speeds
  • a compact size
  • wireless assistant
  • touchscreen display
  • web applications
  • two-sided printing
  • Ink Save mode
  • two-sided printing

There are quite a few reviews for this printer, with the majority giving it a five-star rating. Reviewers liked that the cartridges really held their value and lasted quite a while, as compared to other printer brands. They also said it was quick and easy to configure.

Comparable prices from other stores aren’t quite as comparable. sells this for $179.99. Besides that, I only see this printer selling in the States, for upwards of about $150 USD.

I see that this exact printer was on sale for $80 a few months ago, so another $10 drop is always sweet.

I was going to tell you about Amazon’s second deal of the day, another Brother printer, until I realized that it is the same printer. I’m not sure if this is just a mistake or if they have two spots set up for different delivery, but you can click either link to add this item to your cart.

Because your order is over $99, you are going to get free shipping on this printer. I really can’t see going wrong on this deal. This might also make a great printer for your child heading off to university in the fall, or into high school and you are tired of them using all your ink and clogging up your printer!

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Posted by on May 24, 2015 at 8:00 PM

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

My silverware drawer is a mess lately. I did have a full set of silverware once, but somewhere along the way I lost a few pieces. I think my husband took a few pieces to work and they never made it back. Maybe one or two pieces of silverware got lost in my last move or slid between the fridge and the counter. I recently picked up a new set to replace this mess. It will be lovely not to have to scavenge in my drawer every time more than three spoons are in the dishpan.

My mismatched set of silverware can be pulled out of the drawer, I am ready to get it out of my kitchen. I hate the idea of wasting good metal silverware, so I thought I would check out ways to upcycle it. Check out some of my favourite projects I found below.

Garden Markers

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Remember where your favourite vegetables are in your garden with these cute garden markers from Homespun Sprout. Even better, there is an included free printable at the bottom to make this project even easier. I find garden markers are particularly helpful for me in my herb garden so I can tell which herb is which. These markers will be much more durable than the cheapie plastic ones. If you do not want to splurge on varnish, you can seal the images with clear nail polish.

Drawer Pulls

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Make your cabinets more interesting by creating handles out of your old flatware. Check out all the images on Hutch Studio.  This is a great project to consider if you are upcycling a new piece of furniture. These handles would also look so cute on kitchen cabinets.

Napkin Rings

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Make your next backyard BBQ have a touch of shabby chic with these cool silverware napkin rings. Check out the full instructions over on Dream Book Design. I think what I like best about this project is these napkin rings would look equally cute for a fancy dinner party or your next summer party on your deck.

Starburst Mirror Wall Décor

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

This is a cute project over at Flamingo Toes. Use your silverware, a plate and a mirror to create a new décor piece for your dining room or kitchen. Mirrors help to open up a space, so they are a great choice for home décor. You would never know this project is made with hot glue on a cardboard base.

Paint Dipped Silverware

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Take all your mismatched silverware and turn it into a set that looks like it belongs together. A little bit of paint goes a long way over at A Simple Kind of Life. This would be a cute way to spice things up for a party, where you need extra silverware. I might use this idea to turn my old silverware into a designated outside patio set for summer.

Plant Hanger

7 Ways To Upcycle Silverware

Reshape old silverware into hooks for small plants. See the full hack over on hutch studio. I think the key to this hack is using small or light planters. The blogger used small mason jars in a covered porch to avoid drainage issues during rainstorms. You could also use a light plastic planter from the dollar store. Just add a wire to hang from the planter from the spoon hook. This is an easy way to add flowers inside or outside your home.

AVG Anti-Virus 2015: 1 Year Free!

Posted by on May 24, 2015 at 4:00 PM

AVG Anti Virus 2015: 1 Year Free!

Many of us are sitting at our computers right now, browsing the internet with some sort of anti-virus program running. There are a number of choices when it comes to anti-virus software, but one aspect that always reels people in is a freebie on a reputable program. That’s what you can get just now from AVG – they’re offering a completely free one year subscription to their 2015 Anti-Virus software!

I last wrote about a freebie similar to this back in September 2014 here, though that was the AVG Internet Security software at that time. This time it’s the anti-virus that’s free!

Here’s what you need to do to get this program for free:

  1. Scroll down to the “INSTALLATION FILES (PAID VERSION).”
  2. Click on your chosen AVG version.
  3. Download and install the program.
  4. Apply the license key ABLAD-A2XEL-DUIGR-AIMDV-TAKLW-3WIDO to activate.

I’ve just tested this out and it is working well. As you can see at the bottom left of the screenshot below, it says it’s good to June 2016 – that’s the full year’s subscription.

AVG Anti Virus 2015: 1 Year Free!

AVG’s site states that they currently protect 202 million active users! That’s a heck of a lot! That number just goes to show you that this is good software, used by millions of people all over the world. Now, not everyone LOVES it, there are some dissenters out there. But for basic home use, it does the job.

To show you an example of the value of this freebie, check this out. You can buy the same items (albeit for use on 3 accounts) for $49.99 @ Best Buy Canada just now. Here, on AVG’s own site, you’ll pay $39.99 for this software, the full version. So if your current anti-virus subscription is about to expire, or you just need a new piece of anti-virus protection for a new computer, this deal could come in very handy.

May 24 Sale: 50% off PLUS Extra 15% Signup Coupon!

Posted by on May 24, 2015 at 12:00 PM Sale: 50% off PLUS Extra 15% Signup Coupon!

Anyone need a new watch? Or perhaps thinking of buying one for someone as a gift (perhaps for Father’s Day)? Hit up just now, as there’s a pretty good deal happening, as well as a signup coupon code. There’s a sale section with 50% off and what’s even sweeter, is that you can sign up for their email updates and instantly get a 15% coupon code too.

There are around 80 watches to choose from in this sale, with a mix of women’s and men’s watches. Prices on the sale watches seem to start around $25 (or $21.25).

Getting a 15% Signup Coupon

There’s a box at the bottom right of the Timex site which asks you to sign up to email updates. If you sign up there, you WON’T get a free 15% coupon code. However, when you first click through to the above site, click around a bit and you will get a popup offer. This will state that you can get a 15% coupon code by signing up to email updates. Using two different email addresses that I got through 10minutemail, I tested both signup methods and I only got a 15% coupon code when signing up on the popup screen. When you do this, you’ll get a promo code for 15% discount that expires in 14 days from signup.

Watch Examples

Here are a few examples of the prices I see with the 50% sale and the extra 15% coupon code applied too:



Free Shipping on $75+

If you want to take advantage of the Timex free shipping option, you will have to spend at least $75 on their site. All orders above this level will get free shipping to your home. If you spend less than this amount, shipping is only $4.50 anyway. That’s not so steep.

When we got an email newsletter about this deal, Timex were advertising a 10% coupon code on top of the 50% sale items; the code was ONLINE10 (expires 29th May 2015). Their email was titled up to 60% off… but someone at Timex doesn’t know how to do math! 50% sale items plus a 10% coupon code means a 55% discount on the original prices, not 60%. Heh. The pedant in me has emailed them and told them so… Sale: 50% off PLUS Extra 15% Signup Coupon!
