Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play-doh, My Little Pony, & More

Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play doh, My Little Pony, & More

There is a bunch of buy one get one free offers on at Toys R Us for this weekend. This is a great time to stock up on toys for your children – whether for birthdays, for good behaviour rewards, or for Christmas (I know… so far away).

Here are some of the items you can buy one of and get another free:

  • BOGO FREE on ALL $21.99 and Under Play-Doh
  • BOGO FREE on ALL $14.99 and up My Little Pony
  • BOGO FREE on ALL Littlest Pet Shop Dolls and Playsets

I started with Play-Doh, as it is a favourite childhood toy of mine. I just adore the Play-Doh Stamp and Roll Set Featuring Despicable Me Minions for $9.99. There is a unicycle roller with stamps built in and a Pogo stick with different stamps as well. It is one-eyed minion versus two-eyed minion for the win! I would pair this set with the Play-Doh Marvel Can-Heads Featuring Spider-Man and Green Goblin that is also $9.99. Together, one set becomes free.

Toys R Us: BOGO Free on Play doh, My Little Pony, & More

You can see the discount in my cart above. Now, Toys R Us offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more so you will want to add more than $10 worth of stuff to your cart.

When I was a child, I owned one My Little Pony. I think my pony would be a classic now as My Little Pony has come back as a hit TV show and toy franchise among kids, teens, and adults. I was at a comic convention where I heard Q from Star Trek speak. Half the questions directed towards him were about the character he voices on My Little Pony! You could purchase the My Little Pony – Equestria Girls Collection – Twilight Sparkle Doll for $17.99 and get the My Little Pony – Equestria Girls Collection – Rarity Doll for free. If you split the cost between the dolls, which means each doll will only cost $8.99.

Lastly, all Littlest Pet Shop Dolls and Playsets qualify for the buy one get one free offer. I picked out the Littlest Pet Shop – Backstage Beauties Pet Pair for $14.99 to pair up with the Littlest Pet Shop – On With the Show Pet Pair, which is also only $14.99. Your second one becomes free in your cart.

You can add multiples of these deals as well. I tried out four Littlest Pet Shop items and two became free. You can do this with the My Little Pony and Play-Doh deals as well.

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT*

Posted by on March 27, 2015 at 10:52 AM

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT*

Walmart Canada has discounted the Hugo Folding Walker from $113.47 down to $28. The Hugo TranSport Chair is also on sale from $199.97 down to $50. Both of these items come with free shipping to your home.

Both of these are very heavily discounted – so much so that I am surprised they are still in stock. The walker is lightweight (6 lb) and folds up flat for storage so it is never in the way. Push a button on the unit to make the walker fold. The walker includes side storage bags and a pack of 5″ walker wheels for easier gliding. The adjustable height makes the walker more versatile. The Hugo Walker can handle up to 300lbs of weight.

If you have an elderly parent or grandparent – this can be very useful. My mother always kept a walker out at our place for my grandmother. When she came to stay, she didn’t need to pack her big walker into the car. Rather, she could use the one we had at the house for her.

Wheelchairs are really expensive, so if you need one buy this Hugo! The Hugo TranSport Chair is also quite light – weighing in at only 16 lbs. Like the walker, the wheelchair folds up so you can transport it and store it easily. The padded upholstery provides some comfort and there are built-in compartments for putting a few valuables – or a snack bar. Seat belt, rear brakes, and removable footrests are included. There is a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs. Both the walker and the wheel chair assemble without tools.

I may be young but there are times in my life I wish I had a walker or a wheelchair. That time I tore a ligament in my foot and could not walk for two weeks – that would have been a nice time to have a walker. That time my friend and I collided while skating (I fell on top of him because he stopped suddenly) and he broke his ankle – that would have been a nice time to have a walker, or better yet a wheelchair. Honestly, crutches suck.

I am not sure how long these items will stay in stock, as they are 75% off and quite valuable for anyone who is elderly, has health conditions, or is accident-prone. Pick one up while you can.

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 8:00 PM

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

Spring cleaning has started at my house already. While I like to be organized, I could spend a small fortune in small bins and containers. Magazine holders are a storage container that can be made of cardboard, metal, plastic or sometimes even wood. These inexpensive containers usually cost only a few dollars at the dollar store. You can spend an extra buck or two more and find many stylish options at IKEA. Depending on the project, you can also make your own magazine holders out of cereal boxes following this tutorial from Crafty Journal after you raid the recycling bin. Make your containers even cuter by covering them with fabric, pretty paper or comics.

Create A Mail Storage System

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

Check out this mail rack on Lifehacker from user kazmataz. Using only a simple shelf, a few wooden IKEA KNUFF mail organizers and some wood stain, she created an awesome fixture to stash mail and other small items by the door.

Store Your Potatoes and Onions

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

I used to have a special wood box that kept my potatoes and onions organized, but it broke. I think I spent $40 on that box. Check out this idea from Mimi’s Crafty World to store your produce in metal mesh magazine holders. With a see thru container, you are less likely to end up with wrinkly potatoes you forgot about.

Hide Your Eyesore Modem

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

Your modem is a necessity, but they sure can be ugly on a shelf. Use a magazine holder to hide the eyesore just like they did at Design O.C.D. with very little effort. The box is open on one side and it should allow airflow to keep your router cool while looking chic.

Store Your Craft Supplies

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

If you like to DIY, it is very likely you have some spare craft supplies around. Storage containers geared at crafters can be pricey. I love this storage idea for yarn from Laughing Purple Goldfish using magazine holders. Even better, this could work for paper or scraps of fabric.

Organize Canned Goods In Your Pantry

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

If you are like me, you dig through the pantry looking for tomatoes and end up with a can of beans instead. Check out this perfect storage idea from PB&J Stories. Use magazine holders to organize your canned goods so you can locate them quickly and effortlessly. You can match your kitchen’s personality by recovering the outside in a pretty pattern.

Store Tea In A Corner Shelf

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

This tea and herb shelf using the Ikea wooden KNUF is a great idea. Check it out on Ikea Hackers. You could use this corner shelf idea for K-cups, spices, or any other small item storage.

Storage Inside A Cabinet

7 Clever Ways To Repurpose Magazine Holders

The Simple Life and Home mounted these containers on the inside of their cabinets to store long boxes such as aluminum foil and plastic wrap. You could use screws or even use command hooks for a removable option. This would work equally as well mounted in your bathroom cabinet to hold your curling iron or flat iron.

Bargainmoosers, what else besides magazines would you store in a magazine holder?

Today Only: 73% Off Best Of Warner Bros. 100 Film Collection   Now Just $164 (Was $600) @ Amazon Canada (+ FS)

Calling all movie buffs, here’s an offer from Amazon that you definitely won’t want to miss! Until the end of the day today, you can save a whopping 73% on the Best of Warner Bros. 100-film collection. Originally priced as high as $599.99, it’s now down to just $163.99 — wow! Plus, it comes with absolutely free shipping.

If we think about it this way, each movie was originally $6 but is now down to just $1.64 per movie — pretty amazing if you ask me.

This is the world’s largest film collection on DVD and also includes all 22 of Warner Bros.’ Library’s Best Picture winners. These are presented in a book via 55 discs, along with two documentaries:

  • Tales from the Warner Bros. Lot
  • The Warner Bros. Lot Tour

The selection of movies range in years, with the oldest one being from 1927, The Jazz Singer, and the most recent one being 2006’s The Departed. Luckily, once you click over to Amazon’s site, all of these are arranged from the oldest to the most recent.

Here are just some of the oldest movies:

  • The Jazz Singers (1927)
  • Broadway Melody of 1929 (1929)
  • The Public Enemy (1931)
  • Cimarron (1931)
  • Grand Hotel (1932)

And some of the most recent ones:

  • Million Dollar Baby (2005)
  • The Notebook (2004)
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001)
  • The Matrix (1999)

The first Lord of the Rings movies are also all included: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003).

Other noteworthy movies that are sure to excite some of you include but are not limited to:

  • The Outsiders (1983)
  • Full Metal Jacket (1987)
  • Lethal Weapon (1987)
  • Driving Miss Daisy (1989)
  • Batman (1989)

I have to admit that I was definitely surprised to see “Interview with the Vampire” from 1994 on the list. It’s definitely an amazing movie that is worth watching but it’s still kind of surprising that it’s on the list of the best movies, isn’t it? Although then again, I guess it’s not that surprising considering that both Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are in it!

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:45 PM

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17

I am a bit obsessed with Monster High dolls – I will admit it. I constantly monitor their sales on Walmart! This Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack – Shivering Sad, Eek Excited, Hauntingly Happy is on sale from $34.97 down to just $17 with free shipping.

Okay, this pack is the ultimate cool Monster High pack for real fans of monsters. The doll comes with three different faceplates plus her usual face. The faceplates fit over her face to give her different – really awesome – designs and expressions. Press down on her brain, and her eyes change as well. I really like the evil looking eyes. Her body comes with two different torsos. One is the ‘normal’ monster high torso and the other is the one where you can stick in different monster organs and then snap the plastic cover shut.

She also comes with a bunch of accessories including two different outfits and different hairpieces. Her journal has blank pages so you can make your own monster story. Overall, she is one cool doll! You can even mix and match her pieces with other Inner Monster dolls. I have one from the Inner Monster collection – and I just love her face plate and wings. It would be fun to interchange doll parts, clothing, hair, and more.

I tried price comparing this set, but it is sold out everywhere else. I did find it from a secondary seller on Amazon for $99.95 plus shipping (ouch). A regular Inner Monster doll pack retails for $29.99 on Sears Canada (not the deluxe), and the best deals on eBay.ca start at $34 for the pack plus shipping.

I found some reviews online. Reviewers tended to be very impressed with the deluxe pack. The many accessories for the doll was their favourite part. Some reviewers said that this doll is best for those who are not planning to collect all the dolls. The Inner Monster deluxe pack becomes three dolls in one with the many different accessories you can use to customize her. Overall, the doll plus accessories is a great buy for only $17.

If you are in the market for other Monster High dolls, check out the MONSTER HIGH – GHOUL SPIRIT DOLL for only $14.97. Frankie and Spectra are still available. Monster High Creepateria Cleo de Nile Doll is also on sale for $14.97.

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Lowe’s Canada is giving away batteries with select tools and tool kits. Many of these bundles are also on sale so you already save money. You also receive a free battery valued at $55 up to $129.

Let us start with the cheapest kit you can buy to receive a free battery. The Bosch 18-Volt 1/2-in Cordless Drill with Soft Case is currently on sale from $139 down to $99. With it, you will receive a compatible battery. This battery is valued at $79.99! Overall, you are spending $99 for $219 worth of stuff between the drill kit and the battery.

There are two ways to receive your free battery. If you click ‘add the set’ on the main page above, then both the kit and the battery will be added to your cart. However, if you view product details and then add the tool to your kit, then you need to add the battery to your shopping cart as well.  Do you see the green bar below?

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

Make sure you click the ‘Add’ button for the appropriate battery to be added to your cart for free. If you miss this step, then there will be no free battery in your order. After adding the battery on, your cart should look like this:

Lowes.ca: Free Battery with Select Tools (Up to $129 Value)

There we go! You can see the battery is now in your cart and will cost you nothing. Most of these tools and kits qualify for free parcel shipping (on orders of $49 or more), so shipping should be free across Canada.

The most expensive battery belongs to this large DEWALT DCK290L2 20-Volt MAX* Lithium Ion Hammerdrill / Impact Driver Combo Kit. The kit itself cost $369, but is now on sale for $319. This pack includes:

  • 1/2-in Hammer drill
  •  1/4-in Impact driver
  • Two (2) Li-ion battery packs
  • A Fast charger
  • A 360° Side handle
  • A Belt hook
  • A Contractor bag

While the kit comes with two batteries, you are going to be running two tools with them. It is always nice to have an extra one sitting on the charger, or already charged, to slip in when one battery dies. If you happen to need both the tools at the same time – then there is no time to leave one battery on the charger. Your free battery will be battery number three! One of these batteries retails for $129 so you save that plus $50 off the original kit.

Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Were $30 | Now $15 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Were $30 | Now $15 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Any little boy will enjoy the figures included in this Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Set. Walmart Canada has this set on sale from $30 down to just $15, and you won’t be disappointed. Help Batman and Superman take down the Killer Croc as a tag-team. You’ll even get free shipping from Walmart.ca.

Nothing sounds scarier than a mutant crocodile! This mutated crocodile known as Killer Croc has attack claws that activate when you squeeze his legs. Fortunately enough, Killer Croc is no match for Batman and Superman, especially when they work together. Use the power of these two well known super heroes to defeat the mutated crocodile with the necessary tools that are included. This set would have normally cost you $30, but is now half price at just $15. 

This set is best suited for ages four and up, since there are some small parts. The items included in this Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Set are:

  • Batman figure
  • Superman figure
  • Killer Croc figure
  • trap claw accessory
  • capture net accessory

What means will you use to capture the Killer Croc for good? This set is great even if you have two boys, since they won’t fight over who gets to be the good guy. If you’re prepared for a fierce battle and for endless hours of play – then this is a toy you should add to your cart, and pronto. You will want to snag this deal as quick as you can, since the stock is already limited online and who knows how quickly this feature set could sell out. This set compares at much higher prices at other retailers. For example. Amazon.ca has this set on sale for $49.98.

The reviews on the Walmart Canada website for this product look pretty decent. One mom complains that the paint doesn’t have the best detail, but her son doesn’t mind. Other parents say that this set exceeded their expectations especially considering how low the sale price is. It truly is a great value for three full sized action figures. Each action figure is 6″ tall. I know my son would love to play with these even at his age, but I would be worried about him swallowing an arm or something haha.

Walmart.ca also offers free shipping on all orders, no matter how much or how little you spend. That means the only additional cost you will have to worry about is taxes. Let’s just hope that your boys don’t capture the family hamster or cat in the net or claw.

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 2:40 PM

Amazon Canada: Puppeteer PS3 Game Was $35 | Now $10 (FS @ $25)

Amazon Canada just dropped the price on this beautifully animated Puppeteer game for the Playstation 3. The game was $35.38, but is now on sale for just $9.99.

This game is for everyone who likes dark fairy-tales and puppets. PSN gives a quick rundown on the game’s theme:

Set in a magical puppeteer’s theatre, this title will introduce you to a strange and fantastic world, where the environment is constantly changing. Players will enjoy a rich, dark fairytale where surprises lurk around every corner.

You play a boy – Kutaro – who was stolen away to a magical land and then turned into a puppet. he displeased the tyrant of the land so much that the tyrant ate the body’s head and threw away his body. Now, with the help of a magical pair of scissors, you can help the headless Kutaro along on his adventures to find his head.

The game has some really interesting features including swappable heads! You can change your head anytime you want within the game. If you lose your head, then you lose a life. This game is pretty unique in platforming, stages, and theatrical storytelling. You use a pair of scissors to cut, chop, and crop your way through the adventures. The sets are incredibly rich, as befitting a theatre and the colours are rich.

There are only two ratings on Amazon.ca – and they are polar opposites. However, the PSN has far more ratings for the game. With 2892 ratings, the game rates a perfect 5/5 stars. Also, I price compared against the PlayStation Store. There, the game costs $39.99 just to download. I could not find this game anywhere else in Canada. When i found the game in the USA, it retailed for more than $10, I can assure you!

I think this game is beautiful just to look at and I am sure it will be visually gorgeous to play as well. With a perfect 5/5 star rating on PSN, this game is probably a hidden gem just waiting to be found and loved. Puppeteer is unique among games today and I hope it finds a home on your game shelf. At this price, it is certainly worth trying.

Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Shipping costs around $5 for orders under the minimum.

Adidas Canada is offering an extra 25% off all sale items this weekend. Between the up to 70% off sale prices and the extra discount, you can score some great deals on athletic wear and shoes.

There are some seriously insane deals at Adidas right now. This Women’s Climaheat Hydro Jacket is already 60% off. Originally $120, the jacket is on sale for $45. In my cart, the jacket comes down to $33.75. Sizes extra-small, small, and large are still available. However, some of those sizes only have one left in stock.

Winter coats can be rather expensive, so my favourite deal is on the Women’s Down Coat from Adidas. A simple black puff coat, this down coat is sure to be a staple in your winter wardrobe next year. Originally $200, the jacket is on sale for $75. After the extra discount, this coat comes down to $56.75.

There are also some sweet designer items in this sale. I am highly tempted to buy this Women’s Selena Gomez Printed Lace Top that was $45 and is now $25. I may not like Selena Gomez but I am a fan of skulls. After extra discount, this top comes down to $18.75.

As for shoes – OMG you must buy a pair of Women’s Stan Smith Up Shoes in Red or Fairway. I used to own something similar and they were one of the hottest pairs of shoes I ever owned. Originally $150, these gorgeous shoes are now on sale for $75. Once you add the shoes to your cart, they come down to $56.25. Many core sizes are still available.

Usually, I hate anything with logos but this Women’s Farm Indigo Cropped Firebird Track Jacket is so hot I might just pass out. Originally $70 and on sale for $30, the jacket comes down to just $22.50.

The Men’s Ultimate Stripe Hoodie was $70 and is on sale for $30 so it also comes down to $22.50 after the additional discount. Pair this great top up with a pair of legendary Adidas shoes. I picked out these Men’s Duramo 6 that were $90 and are now $40. In your cart, they come down to $30. Choose from six colours.

Receive free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Pack (72 Sachets) Was $52 | Now $19 + $7 Shipping @ WagJag Canada

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Pack (72 Sachets) Was $52 | Now $19 + $7 Shipping @ WagJag Canada

Even though Summer is on the way, the nights can still be pretty cool. If you are still in the mood to cuddle up with a favourite movie and a hot chocolate before bed each night, then this is the deal for you. WagJag Canada has a great offer on the Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Packs for hot chocolate lovers like myself. While quantities last you can pay just $19 for 2 Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Packs. Each pack contains 36 sachets and you would normally pay $52.18 for this pair.

Whether you want to cuddle up with a hot cocoa and a good movie, or play board games with the family – hot chocolate is always welcome. I drink at least one hot chocolate a day, so getting savings like this is great. The Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Packs contain delicious flavours like Aero, Rolo, Coffee Crisp and After Eight. This might be a better way to enjoy the flavour of your favourite chocolate bar. You will get two boxes of the Nestle Hot Chocolate Variety Packs for just $19. Since there will be 72 sachets of hot chocolate in total, that leaves you paying just 26 cents per hot chocolate! That is much cheaper than enjoying a hot chocolate from a Keurig or Tassimo machine.

I also find that making the hot chocolate from a can or sachet doesn’t have that metal taste like it does coming from a Keurig or Tassimo brewer. Maybe the sachets don’t contain as much aspartame or preservatives. These Nestle Carnation hot chocolates have to be my favourite out of any other hot chocolate brand anyway. I usually fill my mug with 3 heaping teaspoons of the hot chocolate (or one sachet) and then stir in a little milk. Once the hot chocolate is like a paste, I add the boiling water. This makes for some absolutely delicious hot chocolate froth.

There are some fine print details with this WagJag offer though. The product will not ship until after the deal closes, so you can expect for your purchase to arrive around April 8th. There is also an additional $7 shipping fee, and this offer cannot be delivered to PO boxes. You can purchase as many of this offer as you like, but each one will acquire a $7 shipping charge. The hot chocolate itself will expire on the 31st of July 2015.

HS Sweden: Free Shipping no Minimum

HS Sweden: Free Shipping no Minimum

HS Sweden is back with their free shipping no minimum promotion on socks, underwear, and tights. This is a fantastic promotion as their minimum is usually $50.

I took advantage of this deal last time. I purchased one of their brand new pairs of athletic socks – the Athletic Terry Sock in black with large dots. The sock cost me $13 and was really worth every penny (woops… nickel!) I spent on them. I own many HS Sweden socks, but this sock was far more comfortable, soft, and supportive than any of my other socks. I love the thickness of the material. The cushioned sole is also fantastic for long walks! The arch support is awesome too – it just feels like a gentle hug on your feet. Needless to say, I highly recommend buying a pair. I am going to buy another pair – I just need to decide on what design I like best.

The athletic socks cost the same as HS Sweden’s normal socks. If your budget is not quite that large then I recommend visiting the sock outlet! In the outlet section, I found some limited edition socks on sale. They finally have the Curtis Kulig Sock in red and black on sale from $13 down to $9.10 each. Special Edition socks were always excluded from discounts (like 15% off or so). Thus, the outlet is the only way you will receive a discount on the limited edition socks. I like the black sock with the red text on it.

As I have mentioned before, ankle socks are my favourite. I found three different designs of ankle socks, on sale, in my size. This is the first time I have seen the Furry Dots Ankle Socks. The purple base has furry orange dots all over it. I am not sure how durable these socks would be but they rank pretty high up on the cuteness scale. Ankle socks are on sale from $12 down to $8.40 each. I will be picking up at least one or two more pairs of ankle socks.

Now, all these socks are shipped in via USPS out of the USA (and made overseas) thus duty may apply. However, in all my HS Sweden socks purchases I have never been charged duty – including my order from a month ago – so I am optimistic about my next purchase as well.

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Having a new baby or know someone who is? This deal from Best Buy is perfect for any new parent who needs this important staple for the nursery. Get the Sealy Baby posturpedic crib mattress from Best Buy, with a regular price of $169.99, now only $99.99 and free shipping.

I actually know a few people having a new baby. One friend is having her first, another her fifth. Either way, both need a new crib mattress for the new crib. I think this is a great deal and I’m going to stress the importance of getting a high quality mattress for baby. The first reason is that you want your baby to be comfortable. I bought a mattress once at Walmart super cheap and it showed. There was a spring sticking into my poor little man’s back, so we got him a new one. The second reason is that you want baby to sleep in his/her crib, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. Sealy is a popular brand name in mattresses, so you know you are going to get quality.

This mattress has even won awards, which says a lot! It has a coil system that adapts to the movements of your baby with firm support. You want firm support, especially in the early months, as baby can’t really lift his/her head and you don’t want their face squished into the mattress. But, saying that, this mattress is also plush for comfort.

It is Greenguard certified, which means that it has low chemical emissions. New babies are like sponges from their environment, so this is a nice feature, but I’d also suggest setting up the mattress a few months in advance so it off-gases before baby sleeps there.

There are good reviews and one that seems like the reviewer got a defective mattress.

The previous week my daughter was waking up every day around 11 pm, crying. When we changed the mattress she woke up for a little bit the first night, but she stopped doing that. I don’t know if the mattress made any difference, I just know she needed something firm with more support.

I shopped around and found this is the best deal around. Snugglebugz sells this mattress for $190. Toys R Us sells it for $170.

Best Buy offers free shipping on $25, so this item will also come straight to your door without extra fees.

Staples Canada: Eco-Responsible Multiuse Paper Was $60 | Now $39 (FS @ $45)

Staples Canada: Eco Responsible Multiuse Paper Was $60 | Now $39 (FS @ $45)

Staples has a huge one-day sale going on today and one of the most practical and best deals that I saw was on the Staples FSC-certified eco-responsible multiuse paper. Get a case of this 20lb 8 1/2 x 11 paper for only $38.96, with a regular price of $59.96, for a saving of $21 for 5,000 sheets of paper.

Paper is probably not something you are super excited to shop for, but it is something we all use. Most of us have printers at home and at the office and we probably go through paper like it is going out of style. While I try to use every square inch of paper that I use before recycling, it still seems to fly out of our house and we have to restock often.

Staples seems to be the place to buy paper, as when I tried to shop around, they were one of the only stores that came up. That makes total sense, as it is an office supply store. I also see that most of their cases of paper are around the $60 mark.

What’s great about this paper is that it eco-responsible, which means it is made from responsibly harvested trees and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. It is also free of acid and elemental chlorine, so it is safer all around.

You’ll also be happy to know it is made in Canada.

As for performance, it has a special ColorLok technology that makes your colours up to 30% brighter and bolder and dries fast.

For paper, I was shocked to see that it had 79 reviews. This tells me people are passionate about this product, and have given it a total of 4.5 stars out of five. I found it funny that the most negative review was actually a good review.

Staples Canada: Eco Responsible Multiuse Paper Was $60 | Now $39 (FS @ $45)

Because Staples has free shipping at $45, you’ll want to check out what else is available during the one day sale to avoid this charge. You only need to add a few more dollars to not have to pay a few more dollars in unnecessary charges.

You could take a look at these Bounty select-a-size paper towels that were $10.99 and now $6.59. Another very handy item to have (I have one right beside my desk) is a legal size recycling bin. This was $9.22, now $5.99.

iPad/iPhone FREEBIE: Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water Collector’s Edition @ Big Fish Games! (Value $8)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 9:00 AM

iPad/iPhone FREEBIE: Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water Collector’s Edition @ Big Fish Games! (Value $8)

For one week only, popular gaming gurus Big Fish Games have a little deal on one of their hidden object games – it’s called Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water Collector’s Edition. The iPhone edition usually costs $3.49 and the iPad edition usually costs $7.99, but just now, they’re both totally FREE to download and play.

The above links should get you to the version you want, and you can then access and play the game for free. This freebie is for the full and unlocked version of the game, not the freemium version, so you do not have to pay anything for the complete game, to have for yourself.

As for a brief description of the game, you can:

  • Explore the 48 unique scenes full of cursed secrets
  • Solve puzzles & complete mini games
  • Save the world from falling into Eternal Darkness

Sounds interesting!

Here’s a little trailer of the Curse of the Black Water game for you to watch and see if you are interested in getting it:

I personally love this type of game, though I find that I don’t have a lot of time to play them any more. Why spend half an hour on hidden object games when I could be tackling the ever-growing mountain of laundry, or vacuuming the house? However, I am taking this weekend off work so I am going to download this to my iPad right now in case I manage to get an hour to spare!
