6 Ways to Save Money on Dry Cleaning

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 8:00 PM

6 Ways to Save Money on Dry Cleaning

Dry cleaning is expensive but there are ways to save money on dry cleaning without “being taken to the cleaners” (pun intended).  The main way to save money is to have awareness of what needs to be taken to the dry cleaner and what doesn’t.  There are also ways to extend the life of your clothing between dry cleaning cycles.

Here are six different ways to save money on your next dry cleaning bill.

Read the Label and Take it With a Grain of Salt

By taking with a grain of salt, I mean don’t read the label and follow the instructions to a tee.  According to Good Housekeeping, if a label says “dry clean only” then it means that you really should dry clean that item only.  If a label says “dry clean” it means that you don’t need to dry clean but it would be preferable, but it is not a necessity.  If it says “dry clean” you could either wash it by hand or wash it in cold water on the delicate cycle and then tumble dry low in the dryer.  I have a cashmere sweater that said “dry clean” on the care label (I bought the sweater at Old Navy years ago for under $30) that I routinely wash in the washer and dryer and it has held up well.

Spray Water to Remove Watermarks

According to Frugality Magazine, the two most dangerous fabrics you should be wary of when you purchase are silk and linen.  Oftentimes even if you take these to the dry cleaner, the stain will still appear as it did before you spent the money taking it to the dry cleaner.  If you do buy silk and you end up getting watermark stains on your silk clothing (be it from rain, sweat or whatnot), dry cleaning won’t necessarily remove them and washing them in the machine will likely ruin them.  Instead, Frugality Magazine suggests that you hang it up, spray it with a houseplant mister (full of water) and let it be.  Usually the water mark disappears or it improves greatly.  For other ways to remove watermark stains on silk, check out this Wikihow article.

Curtain Call

Instead of taking your curtains to the dry cleaner to remove dust and pet hair, Good Housekeeping also suggests that you can put the curtains into your dryer for 10 minutes under the air only option and then remove and hang up again.  Although I don’t have curtains in my home, this is a great idea to save money on dry cleaning your curtains when you do that spring cleaning.

Prevention is Key

Readers Digest dispenses sage advice by recommending that the earlier you treat a stain before it has time to set, the better.  Be vigilant about stains on your clothes during meal times and try your best not remove it as soon as possible.  Also, never iron your stained cottoning or it will cause the stain to set and be likely difficult or impossible to remove.  Keep a Tide to Go pen always handy and make the effort to remove the stain before it has time to set in.

Home Dry Cleaning Kits

About.com suggests that home dry cleaning kits are a great alternative to dry cleaning and can make your clothes last longer between dry cleaning trips.  I have a friend who swears by the dry cleaning kit Dryel that she bought at London Drugs.  The Dryel starter kit is $9.99.  I personally have not tried using this yet.

Know What Fabrics are High Maintenance

According to Popsugar, there are certain fabrics that can do relatively well being washed by hand.  These fabrics are cashmere, wool, silk, cotton, and satin.  Contrarily, there are certain fabrics that usually have to be taken into the dry cleaners to be cleaned and these are suede, velvet, and leather.

Hopefully these six tips save you money on your next trip the dry cleaners (or will save you money from having to go to the dry cleaners, period!).

Bargainmoosers, do have other ways that you save money on the dry cleaners?  How often do go to the dry cleaners?  Have you tried Dryel before?

Sears Canada: 60% off Bath, Face, & Hand Towels – From $3.59

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 3:48 PM

Sears Canada: 60% off Bath, Face, & Hand Towels   From $3.59

I am not sure that towels ever wear out unless you have pets, but Sears Canada has a very good deal on the Cambridge ‘Keswick’ Ringspun Cotton towels. The bath towels, matching face towels, and hand towels are all 60% off their original prices!

I like this deal for many reasons. First, you can buy an entire matching set of three towels for a fraction of the regular price. Second, you can choose from so many different colours! The Cambridge towels come in nine colours including orange, grey, pink, blue, and more.

Bath Towel - Was $24.99 | Now $9.99

This towel measures 27″ wide by 52″ long. This is your basic towel for drying off after a shower or after a trip to the pool. I also tend to use these for mopping up really big spills (like my entire water bottle worth of water) on the floor.

Hand Towel - Was $12.99 | Now $5.19

the hand towel measures 16″ wide by 28″ long. Use these towels in your bathroom for drying wet hands. I also use one of these in the kitchen as hand towels are way more absorbent than dish towels. I do not get this whole fad with dishtowels where they just smear the water: they do not actually absorb it. Hand towels are better.

Face Cloth – Was $8.99 | Now $3.59

The face cloth, or wash cloth as I call them, measure 13″ square for ample coverage. Use them to remove makeup, wash dirty hands, and more. I love the absorbency of face cloths as opposed to other cloths. Therefore, I often use them for cleaning, dusting, washing dishes, and more. These are versatile little squares of absorbable fabric.

There are three reviews with two – very positive – and one negative. One of the positive reviewers said:

soft towels for the price cheerful colors to brighten up your bathroom

The negative reviewer had issues with the brand-new red towels shedding (lint!). The reviewer evidently washed his brand new red set with the grey set. When dealing with red dye, you really should wash anything new (and red) alone without other colours. Red is a very powerful dye and it really needs the first wash alone.

While you receive free shipping on $49, you are better off just having your new towels shipping – for free – to your local Sears drop-off location. There are 1300+ across Canada.

Forever Yours Lingerie: Up to 70% Off Sale & Free Shipping Coupon Code no Minimum

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 3:23 PM

Forever Yours Lingerie: Up to 70% Off Sale & Free Shipping Coupon Code no Minimum

Forever Yours Lingerie is offering a rare free shipping deal with no minimum required – use the coupon code below. Usually, the company requires $199+ to reach the free shipping minimum. Now is the time to raid their clearance section for up to 70% off lingerie.

Click here to shop @ Forever Yours lingerie now

  • Coupon Code: JULY4TH
  • Discount: free shipping
  • Expiry: 4th July 2015

These Felina Conturelle ‘Fashion 896′ Briefs are the highest discounted item you will find in the sale section. These little gems smooth your body and provide full coverage. They even come in sizes up to 3X. Originally $75.99 (wow), they are on sale for just $9.99.

The Coquette Multi-Way Lace Babydoll is a great way for women of all sizes to wear something pretty. Originally $49.99, the black and pink babydoll are on sale for just $14.99. However, I prefer the gorgeous Coquette Reversible Lace Babydoll because you can wear it red side out or black lace overlaying the red side out. Two outfits in one that few would guess is the same babydoll. I think I like the bright red side a little better than the black overlaying the red side. It is hard to choose. Originally $59.99, this babydoll is now only $19.99.

There is also a 20% off Hanky Panky sale that you can combine with this promo code. Hanky Panky is one of the rare mainstream American made brands. That means that your underwear are ethically made where the workers are paid fair wages for their work. Hanky Panky also makes some of the most comfortable underwear ever.

I want to get a pair of Hanky Panky Retro V-Kini underwear. Originally $42.99, they are now on sale for $34.39. They are available in chai or black and come in sizes up to 3x!

If you know Hanky Panky from in stores, then you are probably familiar with the Hanky Panky Original Thong. This was the first thong that introduced the world to Hanky Panky’s stretch lace. Originally $26.99, the thong is on sale for $21.59. There are also low rise and high rise options available as well as the fan favourite boyshort.

That is one thing I really like about Hanky Panky and a few other brands. They really make lingerie for women of all sizes without having it as a separate ‘plus-size’ line.

I made sure to test the free shipping with the clearance section items – it works! Take advantage of this sweet offer from a great Canadian lingerie boutique.

Puma Canada: 50% off Men’s Tees & Extra 20% off & Free Shipping – Just $13!

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Puma Canada: 50% off Mens Tees & Extra 20% off & Free Shipping   Just $13!

Puma Canada has an excellent stock of affordable men’s t-shirts on sale for 50% off. Originally $32.50, these shirts are now on sale for $16.25 each. On top of this discount, all sale items are an extra 20% off when you add them to your cart. Thus, this selection of shirts comes down to just $13 each. In addition, you will currently receive free shipping on all orders with no minimum. All prices are in USD.

The No. 1 Logo T-Shirt is discounted in four colours:

Other shirts in this pattern are discounted to varying degrees but these four are all 50% off their original price. Add one or two to your cart and you will see each shirt discounted to just $13. With the free shipping promo, you can just buy one and not have to worry about anything else.

While the No 1. Logo T-Shirt is standard Puma, there are other t-shirt designs in the clearance section. This Essential Training Crew Top has an athletic design and comes in a startling bright plasma at this price (other colours cost more). This shirt boasts dryCELL technology for superior moisture-wicking properties.

Next, the Formstripe Outline T-Shirt is discounted by 50% in medium grey heather-peacoat and black-steel grey. This basic 100% cotton t-shirt has a simple crew neck and Puma logo on the front. These sorts of shirts are perfect basics for your wardrobe.

Other graphic t-shirts are on sale as well. This Big Graphic T-Shirt only costs $13 after all of its discounts. The Galaxy Big Cat T-Shirt in black with lime-green accents is another good option. Both were $32.50, are now $16.25, and come down to $13 after the extra discount at checkout.

If you have noted Puma’s advertising lately, you will have seen a lot of red lines. I always thought they were some sort of glitch or compatibility issue with my browser and Puma. However, they were actually a marketing design. This Gamechanger T-Shirt uses the same red lines to make its message clear. It is also just $13 after all discounts.

There are limited sizes available in some shirts, as to be expected with such a fantastic combo of deals! Let me know which shirts you purchase during this sale.

Lole Canada: Up to 40% Off Clearance & 20% Off Coupon Code & Free Shipping

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Lole Canada: Up to 40% Off Clearance & 20% Off Coupon Code & Free Shipping

Lole Canada has up to 40% off select athletic clothing and accessories in their clearance section. With the following coupon code, you will receive an extra 20% off one item – this coupon code can be applied to clearance and regular-priced items. In addition, receive free shipping all orders.

Click here to shop the clearance section @ Lole Canada now

  • Coupon Code: LC1572
  • Discount: 20% off
  • Expiry: Unknown

While this coupon code actually said nothing about being limited, I found that I could only apply it to one item in my cart. Usually it was the first item I added to my cart. With Lole Canada’s free shipping policy, it just makes sense to place separate orders if you want to use the coupon on more than one item.

This Lole Alisha Scarf in blue is a nice addition to your wardrobe. The scarf is made out of cotton with a jewel-toned print. It is also fairly substantial: 69″ long with pretty fringes. Originally $40, the scarf is on sale for $24. Use this coupon code to reduce the price to $19.20.

Lole is an affordable and good quality active wear company for women. These Pleasure 2 Pants are a relaxed fit option for women on the go. Perfect for traveling, the draped fit and easy care fabric makes your clothing look like you have not slept in them – even when you have. There is a drawstring at the waist as well. Originally $100, these travel pants are now $60. After coupon code, spend just $48 per pair. There are three colours to choose from.

The Karuna Top has this amazing deep scoop back with a higher front line and a pocket placed a bit above traditional pockets. It seems like the single colours still are in stock whereas the two-tone are already sold out. Lole clothing tends to sell out quickly once it hits the clearance section. Originally $70, the top is now $42. Use this promo code to pay just $33.60.

I think the Ardha Top is one of my favourites. It has this great over-sized slouchy look with tighter arms. I like the contrast. The shirt was $90 and is now $54. After promo code, spend just $43.20.

There are plenty of jackets, bottoms, tops, and a few accessories in the clearance section that you can combine with this promo code. As I mentioned above – it works on one item per order.

Shop.ca: $60 Off Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat+Booster – On Sale $340 + EXTRA $75 Off With Exclusive Coupon Code & Free Shipping!

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 12:00 PM

Shop.ca: $60 Off Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat+Booster   On Sale $340 + EXTRA $75 Off With Exclusive Coupon Code & Free Shipping!

Need a car seat? Here’s a great deal on the Dionier rainier convertible and booster car seat that I just took advantage of myself! Originally priced at $399.99, it’s now on sale for $339.99 and you can save an additional $75 by entering the Bargainmose exclusive Shop.ca coupon code MOOSE75OFF300JULY at checkout. Shipping is free as well!

A couple of days ago, I finally decided that enough was enough and that I would be getting a new car seat as my little one is over a year old and still riding around in her bucket seat. She fits within the weight restrictions but getting her in and out of it is a pain. Plus, the combination of her weight and that of the car seat makes it impossible to carry her from the car to the door or vice versa.

Since my baby is tall, I had a look around for the kind of convertible car seat that I could potentially get and after asking in a number of forums, I settled on getting either the Diono Radian RXT, which is currently priced at $379.99, or the aforementioned Diono Rainier. Both are awesome car seats and have high weight and height restrictions but ultimately, I settled on the Rainier because it’s currently on sale. Unlike the RXT, the Rainier also has reinforced sides, which means that it should, in theory, provide even more protection in case of the unspeakable.

A quick note about the price: the $75 credit is only applied after the order total has been calculated with the taxes. I found this part to be quite disappointing considering it doesn’t make much sense for taxes to be calculated before the applied credit but it’s just something to keep in mind:

Shop.ca: $60 Off Diono Rainier Convertible Car Seat+Booster   On Sale $340 + EXTRA $75 Off With Exclusive Coupon Code & Free Shipping!

Even with the credit being applied afterwards, the price is still a fantastic one for this car seat, so don’t let it deter you if you’re tempted by this deal! Depending on the province you’re located in, the taxes will also vary. Mine were adjusted for Quebec.

You can get the Rainier car seat in either the limited edition white houndstooth colour or in either orchid (purple) or black houndstooth. In terms of features, you can sit a baby as young as 5lbs. You can rear-face up to 50lbs, forward-face from 22 to 65 lbs and then convert it to a booster seat up to 120lbs. The amazing part about this car seat is that, along with the Radian RXT, these are the only ones on the market that will allow you to rear-face for that long!

Le Chateau Canada: Up to 83% off Outlet Items PLUS an Extra 15% Exclusive Coupon!

There’s another great clothing deal coming your way this morning, this time it’s from Le Chateau Canada, a favourite of many a Mooser. First of all, the outlet pages on Le Chateau are fully stocked and highly discounted, with savings available of up to 79% on many clothing, shoes and accessories, including items for both men and women. And for this weekend only, we’ve set up an exclusive Le Chateau coupon code which gives you an extra 15% discount off ANY items on site!

Click here to shop online @ Le Chateau Canada now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE15
  • Discount: Extra 15% off
  • Expires: 5th July 2015

With many items starting at only $8.46 after the coupon code has been applied, there’s a great potential here to bag some bargains. Examples of a few little low-priced deals (prices shown include extra discount from the coupon code):

Ladies:

Mens:

Because we’re looking for deals in the outlet section here, sizing can be a little spotty so you might have to have a good hunt through for items that fit you. But as you can see above, there are some definite bargains to be had! Get hunting! Tell us in the comments below what deals you can find.

Other Sales

Apart from the highly discounted items in the Le Chateau outlet sale, there are some other sale sections that might interest you:

Shipping

Sadly there’s no free shipping here; that would have made this deal scorching hot. But shipping depends on how much you are spending, with the rates starting at $7.50 for any order under $100. When you take into consideration the fact of how much you are saving on the original prices of these Le Chateau items (the extremely high percentage discount PLUS the exclusive coupon code) it could well be worth placing an order.

(Save 63%) Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker only $26.99 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Posted by on July 4, 2015 at 9:00 AM

(Save 63%) Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker only $26.99 & Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca!

Anyone on the lookout for a little portable Bluetooth speaker to throw out some thumping tunes and not necessarily be tied to one spot? That’s just what this little speaker can do – it’s the Turcom 5 Watt Enhanced Bass Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker in a titanium grey finish. Originally priced at $72.51 (according to Camel), it’s now dropped by 63% to only $26.99 with free shipping from Amazon.ca!

This item is actually sold by a marketplace seller, but the order is fulfilled by Amazon, therefore you get the free super saver shipping. The Amazon seller has an excellent rating. At this price, you could even buy two!

The Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is powered by one Lithium ion battery, which comes included when you purchase the device. This is a rechargeable battery, so you just pop the speaker on to the charge when the juice runs out. A full charge should last between 8 and 12 hours of playback time, which is quite good considering the size of the speaker!

For your information:

Compatible with almost all Bluetooth-enabled devices; 3.5mm Auxiliary input port for non-Bluetooth devices

For me, I’d love to use this along with my iPhone – I’d just send the tunes from the phone to the speaker. The speaker quality on my iPhone 4 is pretty poor… and sometimes I use it to listen to tunes if I am working out in the garden. This speaker would be ideal for that!

The specs also say:

Accept phone calls and converse using built-in microphone; connection range: 33-feet

I personally don’t use the phone very much for calls (except for family) so I personally wouldn’t make much use of that feature – but you might!

The reviews on Amazon.ca of the Turcom Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker are very positive – it scores 17 five star ratings, with an average score of 4.8 out of 5 stars. This is an extremely high rating and just goes to show you that it’s been very well regarded by the people that have made a purchase.

I’m quite impressed with the reviews and the price of this little speaker, I think it would be a very good buy.

Point Zero Canada: Get $50 off $150 PLUS Stacks with Exclusive 15% Coupon Code PLUS Free Shipping!

Point Zero Canada: Get $50 off $150 PLUS Stacks with Exclusive 15% Coupon Code PLUS Free Shipping!

This weekend, the popular clothing store Point Zero Canada is having an event in which if you add $150 or more worth of clothing to your cart, you get an automatic $50 discount. That’s not a bad deal in and of itself, but it’s made even sweeter when you apply our exclusive coupon code below. The 15% coupon code seems to stack on top of the $50 discount, giving you an even higher discount percentage! Here are the details of our exclusive coupon:

Click here to shop online @ PointZero Canada now

  • Coupon Code: MOOSE15
  • Discount: 15% off regular priced items
  • Expires: 31st July 2015

For example, here’s a shopping cart which I just filled with some goodies:

Point Zero Canada: Get $50 off $150 PLUS Stacks with Exclusive 15% Coupon Code PLUS Free Shipping!

Here’s how the worked out the discount – first of all, the $50 is subtracted from the total, then the extra 15% coupon is applied. For the above cart, that’s actually working out to be around a 41% discount on the original prices there. Just note that the $50 off $150 is a site-wide discount, but our extra 15% coupon only applies to regular priced items.

Shipping

If your order is less than $75, standard shipping is a flat rate of $9.95. But if you plan on taking advantage of the above offers, then your cart is going to be over that threshold anyway and you will get free Canadian shipping to your home.

Clothing Examples

I smiled when I saw the category for the “jungle look” in the ladies new arrivals section, and I actually mis-read it as The Jungle Book. I’ll show you a few items that I like – but keep in mind that the prices I quote here are going to be full-priced, i.e. before all the above discount amounts.

Remember, when you add things to your cart, you’ll see the extra $50 off $150, then also don’t forget to add the extra 15% coupon code. The Point Zero brand can be a little pricey, but with this stacked discount, it brings things down to a much more reasonable level.

Speed of Site

Just watch out when you are browsing on Point Zero… I found the site very slow. It took about a minute to actually add anything to my cart, or when updating the cart it just seemed to take ages. Persevere to get the deals!

Flip flops seem to be a necessity during these hot months, and that is why we love that Old Navy Canada has their Flip Flop sale where these cute shoes are just $1 per pair when you shop in stores. Shopping online you will notice that they are $2 per pair, which isn’t bad either.

There are two ways to go about this Old Navy Canada Flip-Flop promo. You can either shop at your local store and get the flip flops for just $1 per pair, or shop online and pay $2 per pair. Either way, you are limited to 10 pairs of flip flops per person. Obviously shopping in stores is the better of the two options, for one the flip-flops in stores are half the price and for two you won’t have to worry about shipping fees or minimum spends for free shipping. The first 50 customers at each location will even get a free pair of flip-flops, which is pretty cool.

The selection is the same online and in stores. This promotion is valid on the solid, traditional Old Navy flip flops only. So unfortunately you can’t expect to snag leather or printed flip-flops for just a buck. Even so, the solid flip flops were normally $4.94 a pair so you are saving a substantial amount by grabbing flip flops from Old Navy Canada today.

You can browse online to get an idea of which flip flops you would like to purchase. If your local store doesn’t have the ones you prefer in your size, you can always snag them online. At least you can see what is in stock online with just a click of your mouse. I really like the teal/turquoise solid flip-flops that are included in this promotion. That really seems to be the popular colour this year and is far more appealing than the standard black or brown flip-flops, although black flip flops would match every outfit.  There are oodles of colours available, so you can get 10 different colours if you really like.

If you do decide to purchase your flip-flops online, keep in mind that you will need to spend $50 or more to get free shipping. That is 25 pairs of flip flops! I am sure you can browse around and find other items on sale that you would like though. Otherwise shipping is $8. If you drive a big truck like I do, then shipping may cost you less than gas to get to your local Old Navy store.

Frugal & Fashionable: Comic Book Shoes!

Frugal & Fashionable: Comic Book Shoes!

I was just having a read on Instructables, the amazing site where people share their craft projects and the instructions thereon. I came across these comic book shoes which look absolutely fantastic, and they’re pretty easy to make too. As some of you might remember from this post, I recently made my daughter’s bedside table into a comic-book themed design, so these shoes also tickle my fancy. I am sure that most of us have a few old pairs of shoes lying round which could do with some love. Consider giving them a makeover with your favourite comic book characters!

You don’t just have to use high-heels as pictured above, you can try this style out on any shape of shoe. In fact, in the comments on the Instructables post, people have shared their own creations showing all sorts of shoes, from kitten heels to DMs.

I’ll not write out the full tutorial here, but basically you just need shoes, the comic book of your choice, scissors or a craft knife, and glue. Use your creative juices and your imagination and put the clippings from the comic book on to your shoes, and finish with lots of coats of glue.

What do you think of the style? Will you give it a try yourself? I am so tempted!
