Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

A playard is pretty much a must-have with a baby and toddler. It seems they’ve changed the name from play pen, maybe because that sounded a little restrictive for the child. Right now, Toys R Us has the Chicco Lullaby playard on sale for $199.98, with a regular price of $269.99. On top of that, they have a buy one, get one 50% off on all clearance items, including this one. There is a limit of one per customer on this playard, so you can’t buy two and get the second 50% off, but you can see what other items you might need from the clearance section for 50% off.

If you are a new parent, you might think a playard is a frivolous item, but you would not be correct. I loved having mine on the main floor, where I used it for diaper changes, naps when I wanted to be around the baby, and eventually to keep him safe while I did a few things and he wanted to crawl up the bookshelves. Obviously, you don’t want to keep baby in the playard all day, but there are many instances (like whn you have to cook dinner) when you need him/her safe and contained.

A playard is also important for when you’ll be going on road trips and want to make sure your baby is sleeping safely. You really can’t count on those hotel cribs. We also took ours camping so my baby wasn’t crawling around in the dirt all the time.

This playard is a lot more deluxe than the one I had ten years ago and mine was considered deluxe then. It has an incorporated elevated bassinet and change table. There are toys that go with the bassinet or can be taken off to use as a play mat. It also has added features like music, vibration and a nightlight. I also like that it has a push-button folding mechanism before for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to get my playard down and back up again. It also has wheels so you can cart it around very easily.

When I researched around, I found this playard selling for $280 at Snugglebugz.

For your second item, I’d suggest another high-priced item, like the high chairs or strollers on sale. When I added the BabyHome Eat high chair to my cart, it came down to $84.99, from a regular price of $189.98.

Shipping for these large items won’t be free, but you’ll get a $10 discount and for both items, I had shipping at a total of $13 in my cart.

Hudson’s Bay Canada: Distinctly Home Mugs Were $10 | Now $3

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 8:30 PM

Hudsons Bay Canada: Distinctly Home Mugs Were $10 | Now $3

If you are placing an order at Hudson’s Bay Canada soon, then may I suggest adding on a few mugs to your order? Right now, HBC has discounted a variety of adorable Distinctly Home mugs from $9.99 down to $2.99.

These are darling little white coffee cups with fun little graphics on them. At $2.99 a pop – you can get a bunch to give away as gifts or to replace your current mugs. There are seven mugs to choose from:

My favourite mugs are the Clock Mug and the butterfly Mug. I think the Bird Mug and the Printed Mug would be my next choices. If I were to buy a set of these mugs, I would purchase four clock mugs because I love the sketched design of a clack on the white stoneware. The clock is a double clock as it also has an inner clock face.

The Ribbon Mug is a great gift for your number one… anything. Give it to your Dad for Father’s Day (along with some scotch), give it to your Mom for Mother’s Day (along with a jar of hot chocolate mix), or give it to your partner.

I like the bird mug for its tongue in cheek “B is for Bird” note scribbled below. The printed mug is also really nice, and reminds me of summer days and happier days!

At only $2.99 each… these are really an inexpensive purchase. Purchase two mugs for just $5.98 or four mugs for just $11.96. You could get an entire dozen mugs (that is a lot), for only $35.88. While you will not reach the free shipping minimum… these would make a great add-on to whatever else you may be buying.

It is, perhaps, even worth placing an order for just these mugs as shipping costs only $5.95 for orders under $50. If your order totals $49 and you pay with an HBC card, then your order could ship for free. However, if you just buy a few mugs – say four – you are saving $7 per mug. That is $28 saved if you bug four mugs so paying $6 for shipping all of them to you is pretty reasonable.

(PS4) 59% Off Destiny @ Amazon.ca (Or 50% Off For Other Consoles)

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 8:15 PM

(PS4) 59% Off Destiny @ Amazon.ca (Or 50% Off For Other Consoles)

Quick! If you have been wanting to play Destiny, then here’s an absolutely fantastic deal from Amazon. Right now, Destiny for PS4 is 59% off and can be yours for just $28.99 (expired). If you have a PS3, Xbox 360 or Xbox One, then you can pick it up for 50% off, at $34.99. Everywhere else, this game is priced at $59.99, though Amazon has an original list price of 69.99.

First, I must warn you. In writing about this deal, this game kept changing in price. I initially saw it for $28.99, then after refreshing the page, it went up to $34.99 and when I refreshed again, it went back down to $28.99. Even a $34.99 price tag is worth paying, especially since like I already mentioned, this game is being sold at full price everywhere else, but if this happens to you, then I suggest refreshing the page or viewing it in a different browser. Deleting cookies could potentially help as well.

Once you land on Amazon.ca, you can also try copy/pasting the URL into a new tab or browser as that seemed to solve the price discrepancy for me as well.

There aren’t very many copies left either, so don’t wait as it’s sure to go back up in price very shortly!

Destiny is essentially a first-person shooter game that verges on being an MMORPG as it’s massively-multippayer and features a shared world concept.

A1cross the board, this game has stellar reviews, like this one from Best Buy:

Best game of the year, but I shouldn’t be shocked it was made by Bungie, the best gaming franchise EVER.

Even at Amazon.ca, this game has a total of 3.6/5 stars.

According to numerous other reviewers, this game is highly addicting but do beware of the fact that there is some grinding involved. Okay, according to the countless reviews, there is quite a lot of grinding involved. Many have compared it to World of Warcraft in that regard, so only get this game if you have the time and patience to invest into it!

With regards to shipping, it’s free if you get it on any of the other consoles but for PS4, it’s $4.99 as it ships from Mythical Video Games, an independent retailer.

Lululemon Canada: 50% Off Both Ways Bomber Was $198 | Now $99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 7:29 PM

Lululemon Canada: 50% Off Both Ways Bomber Was $198 | Now $99 & Free Shipping

Lululemon has some nice deals in their ‘we made too much’ section. Usually there are discounts anywhere from 25% off to 50% off – with the higher discounts being rarer. This Both Ways Bomber, a reversible jacket, was $198 and is now on sale for $99 with free shipping.

‘Both ways’ refers to the jacket’s reversibility, which gives you two different looks from the same jacket. The seams and ‘inside’ are sewn in such a way that the jacket looks completely natural whether ‘regular’ or inside out. In fact, over time you may forget which way was originally the ‘right way’.

There are two colour choices. One is a heathered white with black on one side with the atomic flower silver spoon and black when you reverse the jacket. I am not too sure about that floral pattern but it is a nice change from simple black and white or grey. It spices up your wardrobe a bit. The next colour choice – and my preference – is the heathered black and black combination. One way, the jacket is almost all black except for the zipper placket, and the other way you have the heathered black (it looks like a hard grey) with the back sleeves and accents.

Both colour options are available in sizes four, six, eight, and ten. Unlike most bombers that hit at the waist, this one is designed to hit low on the hip. It keeps your lower back and love handles toasty warm. A great ‘to and from’ jacket, this will do the work of two jackets yet take up the space of just one.

Most reviews are quite happy with this jacket, especcialy at the sale price. One reviewer said:

I took the chance on WMTM. Glad I did. I love both the floral and heathered white side of the jacket and only have one minor complaint but not a big deal. The bunching up on the bottom of the back side due to the elasticized fabric kind of looks a bit strange, but I guess I see the point of it though. I purchased my usual 10 and I thought it was TTS. I am 5′ 9 1/2″ and 175 lb and it fit perfect.

The only ‘common’ complaint appears to be around the sleeves. Most people find them just a tad on the short side, especially for taller women. However, taller women loved the length of this sweater jacket.

Hunter Canada: 70%+ Off Hunter Sweaters & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:58 PM

Hunter Canada: 70%+ Off Hunter Sweaters & Free Shipping

I just had a heart attack while looking at sweaters! Hunter Canada currently has a beautiful selection of sweaters on sale for 70% off (and more) their original price. This is the time to buy a quality, brand-name sweater at Hunter Canada. Receive free shipping on all orders.

Let us start with sweaters for those on a budget. So rarely can I use the word ‘Hunter’ and the word ‘budget’ in the same sentence. This Original Ribbed Moustache Sweater was $150, but is now on sale for $44. The sweater is made out of soft merino wool and comes in three colours: back, bright cobalt, and military red. If you desire popular brand name items but have a tight budget, this sweater is your best best.

There are another couple sweaters just under the $50 mark. This Original Wool Sweater has accenting cuffs and neckline. There are two colour combinations to choose from: dark chocolate with neon pink and putty with neon yellow. I think the last colour combination – grey and yellow – is the best of the two. Originally $170, this sweater is on sale for $49.

My favourite sweater under $50, and it may be my favourite of the entire sale, is the Original Neon Detail Sweater. With a ribbed texture, slim fit, and longer length; the sweater would be a fantastic addition to my wardrobe. As the sweater hits below the hip, I could wear it with tights in the winter to keep warm. Originally $170, the sweater is on sale for $49. I am leaning towards the khaki green/neon green colourway but the light ochre/neon orange is also appealing.

My favourite sweater, if money was no concern, would be the Original Moustache Sweater in a gorgeous black and green combination. I like the way that the moustache groove separates the two colours. This also looks to be a very thick and chunky merino wool sweater. It would be quite good for cold, wet, blustery sorts of days. Throw on a rain jacket over the sweater and your Hunter rain boots for running errands.

There are plenty of other sweaters to choose from. here are also some dresses on sale as well. The Original Fitted Guernsey Dress is one of three dresses on sale. Pick from plum or black for the dress. Originally $290, this gorgeous wool dress is now only $84.

You must check out the rest of the sale tops and dresses. At over 70% off (most $71.2%), they are quite the bargain.

Little Burgundy: Darth Vader Darkside 3D Clutch Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:29 PM

Little Burgundy: Darth Vader Darkside 3D Clutch Was $25 | Now $15 & Free Shipping

Do you like to put your geek on display? Pick up this Star Wars Darth Vader Darkside Black 3D Coin/Clutch Bag on sale from $25 to $14.98 with free shipping.

This cute little clutch can also fit inside a larger purse. When inside another purse, it works well as a coin purse or a bag for smaller electronics. The clutch is a pretty cool 3D rendition of Darth Vader’s head. Stroke that prominent brow when you unzip his head to make a deposit.

While the bag says it is a clutch/coin purse, I think of this as more of a clutch. 5″ x 5″ is rather large for a coin purse. Heck, I could easily fit my cell phone, keys, credit cards, and even a tube of lip-gloss inside for a night out on the town. There is a detachable wrist strap so you will not lose dear Darth when you are out for a night on the town.

Darth is a 2D molded silicone bag so he will not lose shape. I think he would look amazing with a goth themed outfit for sure. However, I would totally not be adverse to going black-tie and carrying Darth Vader as my clutch. I like throwing a bit of humour into my outfits.

I check out the website for the brand: Lounge Fly. They sell the clutch for $22 US, which equals $27.73 with today’s currency exchange. The bag is out of stock on their website.

I think this is a fantastic little clutch at a great price. Use the wrist strap for evenings out or remove it just to drop this smaller purse inside a larger purse. The free shipping with no minimum offer really makes this deal. Usually, Little Burgundy requires a $75 minimum for free shipping – or else you pay around $5. That really eats into your savings in a hurry. Thus, the free shipping and the $10 off make for a perfect deal together.

I recently acquired the ‘true’ Star Wars trilogy and started re-watching the films. It has been ages since I had seen the films… and there are a couple scenes in there I do not remember. I think i got one of Lucas’ later versions where he had tampered with stuff. It is so hard to know these days.

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada’s toy section is ripe with deals. Pick up some Minnie Mouse themed playsets for up to 50% off their original price with free shipping.

The first toy set is super cute and quantities are already limited. Purchase Minnie’s Pet Bowtique Playset that was $19.97 and is now only $10. The set comes with Minnie, Pluto, and Figaro figures. Minnie and pets can play in the pet grooming partner complete with cash register table, food display shelf, a bathtub, and a groomer’s table.

Minnie needs a way to get around so pick up Minnie’s Limousine that was $19.97, and is now just $10. The pimped limousine has a pool in the back! The set comes with a Minnie figure, her limo, a suitcase, and what looks to be a towel.

While not quite 50% off, I do like Minnie Resort Paw Pack. This pack was $17.97 and is now $10. The pack comes with a Minnie beach figure, two water pets, and tons of beach accessories. One reviewer said:

My granddaughter loves Mini Mouse and she really loves the swim set and the bathing suits for Mini she plays with them at our house every time she comes.

Minnie’s Bike Ride was $29.94 but is now $15. The bike is designed so Fargo can sit in the back while Minnie sits on the front. The cat is included, as well as a helmet for Minnie. One reviewer said:

Christmas gift and my niece loved it! One of her favourite new toys.

All the playsets come with a Minnie doll, which some reviewers found the only downside of all the playsets. One reviewer suggested that the pets and accessories should come separately as her daughter already has four Minnie dolls! If your child wants another character to play with, the purchase the Tea party with Daisy Bowtique that was $24.97 and is now $15. Sure, you still get a Minnie doll, but the set also comes with Daisy.

Lastly, Minnie’s Fashion Ride comes with the cat, a motorcycle, and a change of clothing. There are 10 pieces in all to play with. This set was $24.97 and is now $15.

The best toys are those that work with other toys or toy sets. Since all of these Minnie themed toys are on sale, you can pick up a couple. I think the beach one and the grooming parlour would be my favourite ones, and then I would add on the Daisy set.

Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack Was $80 | Now $44 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack Was $80 | Now $44 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca (EXPIRED)

Do you have some little gamers in your household? The Skylanders Starter Packs always seemed so expensive to me, but right now Amazon.ca has the Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack at a reasonable price. This Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack would normally cost you $79.99, but right now you can pay just $43.99 including shipping. That is a discount of 45%, and there is no telling how long this offer will last.

I have some amazing news. This Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack is available for all gaming systems for this price. Usually you can only find the PS3 or XBOX 360 version discounted like this, but right now you can enjoy this game for any system. The Nintendo 3DS version is a few dollars cheaper at just $38.49. So whether you have a Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox one, you can enjoy the revels of the Skylanders.

Skylanders are rated for everyone 10 and up, but I  have seen even younger kids thoroughly enjoying the games. As an adult who enjoys video games, I have played my nephew’s Skylanders game and quite enjoyed it. Chances are this is a game you could enjoy playing with your kiddos. Who couldn’t use some more family time anyway? Your Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack will include:

  • the Skylanders video game
  • Traptanium Portal
  • 2 Skylanders figures
  • 2 Traps
  • a character collector poster
  • 2 sticker sheets with secret codes
  • 2 trading cards

I took a look around at what other Canadian retailers sell this Skylanders Trap Team Start Pack for. You should really snag this deal if your child (or yourself) would enjoy this game. The last time this set was priced this low was before Christmas, and that did not include all of the versions for all gaming systems like this does. Even still, other retails are still selling this pack for $75 and up. Here is a quick look at a price comparison:

Amazon.ca even offers free shipping on all orders over $25, so you won’t have to worry about any extra fees there. I find Amazon shipping is really fast too. I usually receive my products within 3-5 business days. If your purchase will take longer than that to arrive, Amazon will tell you.

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 2:45 PM

All Future Shop Stores Officially Closed!

On Saturday, countless Future Shop employees got a huge shock upon heading over for their daily shifts. Instead of open doors, they were faced with signs labelled: “this store is permanently closed” as most Future Shop stores will be re-branded as Best Buy. Future Shop’s website is currently no more but all pending orders will be executed regardless.

Back in 2001, Best Buy, a store that we have all come to love and shop at, bought Future Shop. It would have made sense to convert all Future Shop stores to Best Buy ones back then but for some reason, it took nearly 15 years to do so! In fact, 65 Future Shop stores are set to re-open as Best Buy ones within a week with the goal of improving business.

With Target in the midst of withdrawing from Canada, the sudden closing of another major store is definitely major news but what is shocking though isn’t so much that most Future Shop will officially and finally be switching to Best Buy ones, a move that makes sense considering that for a while, nearly all deals and sales have been identical at both stores, but it’s the fact that 500 full-times and as many as 1,000 part-time jobs will be lost as a result.

Although some of the Future Shop stores will simply be converted to Best Buy stores, a restructuring effort that is set to cost up to 350-million dollars, other Future Shop stores that are just in too close proximity to a Best Buy store, will simply be closed. No word either on what will happen to those locations.

Moosers, how will this affect you? Do you know someone who will be losing their job?

Amazon Canada: Lodge Double Play Reversible Griddle Was $75 | Now $50 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Amazon Canada: Lodge Double Play Reversible Griddle Was $75 | Now $50 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

I plan on doing a lot of camping this summer and I know there are many of you who will be too. I know this because trying to get an electrical site at a provincial park in Ontario is a nightmare even months before the dates I want to go! I’m sure the other provinces have the same issue. Since we’ll be doing a lot of camping, we are looking for camping gear and my husband is looking for a griddle and I think I’ve found him one. This Lodge double play reversible grill griddle is perfect for us. It was regularly $75 and now only $49.99 including free shipping at Amazon.

You don’t just have to use this while camping, as you can use it right on your ceramic stove. I hope to use this over the fire and on our portable BBQ. One side is flat, which is great for cooking things like sandwiches, pancakes, eggs and fish. The other side is ribbed for burgers, chicken and other items you want to get those great grill marks on.

I like that this is one item that I need, as space in my vehicle is limited and having to take a griddle and a grill would be a pain! I also like that it is cast iron, as I love cooking pretty much everything on cast iron. I really can’t wait to have my first steak over the fire.

This item has great reviews, giving it a total of four stars out of five. People like the high quality of Lodge products. Some people use it only for camping, others for everyday. I love a versatile product in my kitchen!

It sells for $75 at Sears, $60 at ECS Coffee and $63 at Walmart. This time around, Amazon has the best price and it could change at any time, so don’t wait.

Reading Eggs: Exclusive 4-Week Free Trial & 25% Off Coupon

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Reading Eggs: Exclusive 4 Week Free Trial & 25% Off Coupon

Hands down, one of the hardest things I’ve had to teach my kids is how to read. This is just behind getting them to sleep as infants and potty training. While there aren’t really apps or programs that help with those two, I can enlist help on the reading front. Reading Eggs is a program with games and other fun activities so kids don’t know they are learning in the process. We’ve managed to score you an exclusive four-week free trial, which you’ll see when you click the exclusive link below. When you are ready to purchase, we’ve also got an exclusive coupon for 25% off your one-year membership.

Click here for your free trial @ Readingeggs.com now

  • Coupon Code: BARGAINMOOSE
  • Discount: 25% off
  • Expiry: 31st December 2015

I have three boys of varying ages and so far I’ve tried this program with my seven-year-old who has been struggling with his reading. He used it yesterday and did like the games. What I did find is that he didn’t like it when it he got something wrong, because the software would simply say “no, like this”, which would make him feel like he wasn’t getting anything right. I did sit down with him a few times to show him exactly what to do.

Overall, I like that it tracks his work and I can see his progress through the lessons. There is a test at the beginning to figure out where the child is at what reading level. I have yet to try my four-year-old on the program and what I realized when I added a child to my free four-week trial was that it only gave him two weeks. What I would suggest is signing each kid up with a different email address so you get the four weeks for each child.

Lenny, a couponer who works for Bargainmoose, actually tried this program out before we got the exclusive trial and loves it for her four-year-old son. She said:

My son has only had the trial for a few days, and I have noticed a huge difference in his letters and word comprehension. He’s understanding the written version of numbers also. Its great!

Since we have this trial, it will give you time to realize if you love it before you buy it. If you do feel ready to buy it, use our exclusive coupon code to get 25% off and pay $51.75 instead of $69 and you’ll also have access to Mathseeds. I’m excited for them to try that program out too!

Note that this program is a U.S. program, so you may see a few differences in language and I always like to go over that with my child when I see it. They need to know the difference between neighbor and neighbour! Pricing is in CAD, so no worries about that.

WagJag Canada: Authentic Ray Ban Sunglasses Were $225 | Now $103 + Shipping

Looking for a new pair of shades to have you looking hot through the summer? Look no further than WagJag’s deal on Ray Ban sunglasses. With a variety of sunglasses to choose from, they have them as low as $119. They’ve also got a coupon code – EXTRA10 – that will get you another 10% off.

My husband is notorious for losing his sunglasses. It drives me nuts, as I usually buy him really nice ones for gifts. Once he loses his glasses, he steals mine, which do look pretty funny on him, but then he stretches them out or loses them too. I’m considering getting this deal for him considering it is such a good price, but if he loses these, that’s it!

Like I mentioned, there is a coupon code for another 10% off. I noticed that it also came off the shipping cost, which is $8, which is a very nice bonus! While I think WagJag’s regular price is actually inflated, the sale price is still better than what I see elsewhere.

There are five models with different colours available:

  • Wayfarers in black or tortise – were $225.35, now $119, with coupon they come down to $114.30 including shipping. Ray-Ban sells these for $165. The U.S. Sunglass Hut sells them for $130.
  • Cockpit classic or aviator classic in green – were $228.26, now $129, with coupon they come down to $123.30 including shipping. Ray-Ban sells these for $250. Frames Direct sells them for $144.49.
  • Original Wayfarer Classic in black or men’s black – were $235, now $129, after coupon they come down to $123.30 including shipping.
  • Aviator gradient in light grey/silver or gold women’s – were $239.56, now $139, after coupon they come down to $132.30 including shipping.
  • Aviator flash in men’s blue flash, blue flash, green flash or orange flash – were $242.95, now $149, after coupon they come down to $141.30 including shipping.

I may just have to pick up a pair for myself too with all these different styles and colours available. You can actually pick up 10 pairs with this deal.

The sunglasses will arrive at your address around the middle or end of April, which is just in time for summer.

All of these are definitely products worth trying and using, but I’m actually the most excited to try the YSL mascara volume effect faux cil. Even mascara samples can last a couple of uses, just don’t forget that no mascara should ever be used more than three months because of the accumulation of bacteria inside the bottle!

The reason I’m stoked to try it though is because the full-size version of this mascara actually goes for $36 and it has fab reviews like this one:

The best Mascara I’ve used thus far: I’ve used over 20+ types of Mascara including YSL Shocking…this is by far the VERY BEST mascara I’ve ever used.

There is no mention of it there or in the description on Hudson Bay’s site, but this gift set also comes with a snake skin print clutch. It’s actually quite cool looking; you can view it once you click on the first link above.

As Hudson’s Bay automatically ships the vast majority of orders over $99 for free, then you’re sure to get free shipping on your order as well.

What’s great is that you don’t even necessarily need to buy a ton of make-up or skincare products to get these freebies as chances are, the purchase of a single fragrance would most probably put you over the required $100 threshold. Versace’s Eros for women, for instance, is just $106 for a 50ml bottle.

8 Fabulous Frugal Uses for Vinegar

Spring is here. With Spring comes mud, Spring cleaning, and plenty of other reasons to get to know how to use vinegar with a frugal mind. Vinegar is a great ingredient to make your own cleaner, odour remover, sanitizer, and even a remedy for some health and beauty issues. Vinegar is not only inexpensive, but it contains no harsh chemicals or allergy irritating fragrances. So whether you’re looking to remove some tough stains or cure a sunburn, you might want to read about these 8 fabulous frugal uses for vinegar. Vinegar has never let me down, here’s how to use it:

Cleaning

8 Fabulous Frugal Uses for Vinegar

1. Stain Remover

First, get yourself an empty spray bottle. If it previously contained another cleaner, don’t use it. Just grab a cheap spray bottle from the dollar store. Fill the spray container with 1 part vinegar, 3 parts water and a dash of dish soap. To remove the stain, spray the stain with your solution. Call it “Mom’s Kick Butt Cleaner” or something along those lines, because after just a few sprays – you can wipe the area clean no problem. This is great for my suede furniture as suede can be so delicate.

2. Stinky Garbage Can?

You are going to think I am crazy for this one. I frequently dispose of diapers and kitty litter, so my garbage can doesn’t exactly smell like roses. When garbage night comes around and I get the chance to leave the trash can empty, I soak a piece of bread in vinegar and place it on a paper towel. I then take that paper towel and piece of bread and put it right on the bottom of my trash can overnight. By the morning, the horrendous stench is gone.

3. Odour Remover or Air Freshener

This is a real simple way to remove pesky odours from gym bags, litter boxes, and more. Just fill your handy dandy spray bottle with pure white vinegar and give a few sprays to whatever area doesn’t exactly smell appealing to you. Vinegar neutralizes bad odours, and fast. Once the vinegar is dry, the smell will be gone. The vinegar smell will vanish once the vinegar is dry as well.

4. Unclog The Drain

Not again. The kitchen sink is clogged and that gross water just will not drain. No problem! Throw some baking soda down the drain, generously. Then pour vinegar down the drain as well. This will create a foaming action that will lift any debris that may be causing the drain to be clogged. Once the foam settles, pour some more vinegar until the baking soda is gone. This will also ensure a fresh smelling drain. Also make sure you run hot water down the drain before you use it after using this solution.

Laundry

8 Fabulous Frugal Uses for Vinegar

1. Laundry Stain Remover

Vinegar is also a fabulous agent you can use to remove tough stains on your clothing. If you had fun at the BBQ and didn’t notice that pesky ketchup stain on your capris until you get home, don’t fret. Simply saturate the stained area in pure vinegar and allow it to soak in well. Then throw the stained clothing in the wash like normal, and voila.

2. Vinegar Fabric Softener

Oops, you ran out of fabric softener half way through laundry day. No problem. Just add a cup of white vinegar to your washing machine during the rinse cycle. Your clothing will come out soft, odour free and it won’t even cling to you from static. Vinegar is also an excellent way to remove soap residue from your clothing, or make your towels a little more absorbent without adding chemicals to your laundry.

Vinegar Remedies

8 Fabulous Frugal Uses for Vinegar

1. Good-bye Athlete’s Foot

Spring is here, and flip flop season  is just around the corner. If you are trying to get rid of that burning, irritating athlete’s foot – keep reading. Grab your vinegar and your baking soda to master this cure. Make a solution of equal parts white or apple cider vinegar and water. Then, soak your feet for 15 minutes, twice a day. Be sure to make a new solution each time, and dry your feet well afterwards. Also make sure you place your shoes out in the sun with some baking soda inside as to kill any left over fungus. Baking Soda will dry up any of the moisture. Without moisture, the fungus can’t live.

2. Cure That Sunburn

As a fair skin toned lady, I get sun burnt quite often. Why not cure the burn with some vinegar? You’ll need white or apple cider vinegar and a spray bottle for this miracle treatment too. Fill your spray bottle with vinegar, and spray the sunburned areas on your body. If your face is sun burnt too, then I would suggest applying the vinegar with a cloth.
