6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

In a world where people consume and discard, repurposing items is so much better for everyone. An item gets re-loved, you save money and you have fun doing it. If those reasons don’t persuade you, take a look at the repurpose projects below. These amazing and beautiful re-dos will make you want to run out and start your own DIY ASAP!

6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

Doors are the ultimate throw-away item. They serve a great purpose, but once someone doesn’t like them, goodbye. U Create Crafts took discarded cupboard doors and turned them into hinged art desks for kids. Brilliant!

6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

Speaking of doors, how about this door turned into a bench? I love the detail of the bench and it serves a great purpose, just like it did as a door before it. I wonder what it will want to be next? Twig Decor actually made this bench from a door that was already repurposed as a headboard!

6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

If you’ve got a banged up old tool box, this repurpose from Funky Junky Interiors is perfect for you! Take it into 2014 as a charging station. It is very simple to do and can hold other purposes too.

6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

You probably have a whole room full of useless suitcases, but they don’t have to stay useless forever. Turn your vintage or distressed suitcase into a table, like they did on Hometalk!

Just like doors, chairs serve a great purpose – until they don’t. After cushioning your butt for years, don’t kick them to the curb. This bathroom shelf is so ingenious, I feel like I need to make one. I got this amazing idea from Recyclart.

6 Repurpose Projects That Will Make You Want To DIY

I just found my husband’s next project! I have a bunch of collectible spoons from all over the world that were my grandmothers and they were handed down to me. They sit in a drawer and I feel bad that they aren’t respected more. Even though he would have to alter the spoons, I think this would be an amazing way to display them and give them their due. Found this on Indulgy.

Chapters Indigo Canada: $10 Monogram Necklaces & Tote For only $14.50

Posted by on April 24, 2014 at 5:30 PM

Chapters Indigo Canada: $10 Monogram Necklaces & Tote For only $14.50

Get Mom a monogrammed necklace and a tote! First, monogram necklaces are now only $10 (were $19.50) at Chapters. When you spend $40, you can get the colour block tote worth $29.95 for only $14.50.

The monogrammed necklaces are really cute and Chapters Indigo has every letter in stock. I think this would be a very cute gift for a mom. Since my name starts with E, I’d of course love the E necklace and it is even nicer because I think E is a beautiful letter in cursive.

After you get mom her necklace, take a look at the section of books on sale and see if there are any there for her or you, then spend another $30 and you can add one of the colour block totes to your cart and see its price go down from $29.95 to $14.50. Even lovelier would be handing mom the tote with her books and necklace inside. At this point you would have only spent $54.50 and earned free shipping as well.

It looks like the sky blue has already sold out, but the mint and pink are both still available. As a mom, a tote like this would be a very welcome gift. I’d love to get all of the above from my kids, maybe along with a note suggesting I take the day to myself to go to the park and read. I could wear my necklace. Love it! For some other ideas on how to fill the tote, check out these Mother’s Day gift ideas.

The Source Canada: Kobo Aura eReader Only $85

Posted by on April 24, 2014 at 5:00 PM

The Source Canada: Kobo Aura eReader Only $85

Kobo has put their Aura eReader on sale at a number of retailers and why all the prices are similar, your best deal will be at The Source, because you can add the coupon code TS942 at checkout and get another $25 off, spending only $84.99. The original price for this is $149.99.

This is a fabulous deal that I’m sure won’t last too long, so I expect to see some comments below with sad smileys telling me it is sold out. This blog post is almost a 2-in-1 deal post. You were already saving $40 on the Kobo Aura, but then you added the coupon code, which is $25 off any $100 purchase and saved yourself $65 instead. You can also come back and make any other purchase you like to get the $25 off something else. The coupon does say one purchase per person, but it is always worth trying out.

The Kobo Aura eReader (black) sounds like an awesome machine I’d love to have in my bag. With a 6″ ClarityScren and the latest e ink technology, reading on the eReader is easy on your eyes, day or night or bring sunshine. You can access literally millions of titles over the integrated wi-fi and even track your reading stats so you can pat yourself on the back afterwards.

You can ship to your local store for free and pick up your Aura there or you can pay $4.99 and get it right to your door. I like both options.

Amazon Canada: 40% Off Nerf

Posted by on April 24, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Amazon Canada: 40% Off Nerf

Get your Nerf on and save 40% at Amazon.

We all know about Nerf – soft toys that are usually guns or some other type of battle instrument. While I don’t believe in giving kids guns to play with, Nerf guns are really fun. I don’t buy my kids anything that resembles an actual gun, but I do believe that boys and some girls  need that type of physical action of battling a friend or pretending to do a cops and robbers type skit. Nerf toys are soft enough that when they hit you, you won’t actually lose an eye. I would use them outside though, I’m sure lamps could be knocked over in the playing with Nerf time.

I price compared a few of the items on sale and found that Amazon had the cheapest prices, even if 40% off was a bit of a stretch. So, if there is some outdoor fun to be had in your backyard this summer, you should check out this sale.

A friend told me recently that her daughter badly wanted this Nerf Rebelle guardian crossbow blaster. Made for girls, although these blasters don’t discriminate, it sends darts flying with ease so she can battle back when her older brother picks on her. This one was $34.99, now $24.99.

If discs are the kid’s thing, then the Nerf Vortex Vigilon blaster is the way to go. And remember you don’t just have to shoot your friends. Objects are great for practice. Was $22.99, now $12.79.

Shipping is free on a $25 spend.

NCIX Canada: Trendnet Wireless Day/Night Cloud Camera Only $45 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 24, 2014 at 3:00 PM

NCIX Canada: Trendnet Wireless Day/Night Cloud Camera Only $45 & Free Shipping

NCIX has a great deal on the Trendnet wireless day/night cloud camera, now only $44.99 with a previous price of $149.99. This means you’ll save $105 off of NCIX’s price, but this price also beats competitor prices.

Amazon has the same unit on for $66.98, which is still a good deal, but not as good as NCIX. Dell has the camera for $99.99 and NewEgg has it for $70.99.

Now that you know prices, you might want to know why you need this camera. Well, the day/night cloud camera takes the work out of watching videos over the internet. There are no complicated logins to perform (just ones simple one). Take crisp video in the complete darkness with this video, even 7.5 meters away. It even has motion detection recording and one-way audio. The other bells and whistles include four times digital zoom, wall or ceiling mounting, scheduled recordings, email alerts and time and date stamp.

This seems like a good camera to use as a security camera. Reading the reviews, people love it for just that. One person talked about using it to watch their pets and the people coming to care for the pets while they were away on vacation. It would send him an email every time there was movement on the camera. This could be a great way to watch your kids while you are on vacation and make sure they aren’t partying in your house. Also great to use if  you need a form of neighbourhood watch if someone has been breaking into homes or vehicles. There are a million ways you can use this camera and for the low price, I think it would be worth it!

Like I said, shipping is free on this item.

Robeez Canada Promo Code: Free Shipping On All Kid’s Shoes

Posted by on April 23, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Robeez Canada Promo Code: Free Shipping On All Kids Shoes

I just love free shipping. Don’t you? Get any pair of Robeez shoes from Robeez and a promo code and you’ll get free shipping too. Normally you’d have to spend $50 to earn free shipping, which is at least two pairs of shoes, so if you only need one, now is the time.

Click here to shop @ Myrobeez.ca now

  • Coupon Code: P4T5CZ
  • Discount: Free Shipping
  • Expiry: 26th April 2014

I absolutely adore Robeez and my kids each had at least one pair, maybe a few more. They are too cute, stay on, and great for the developing foot. We also had the boots, which are great for non-walkers and keep baby’s feet so warm. These would make a great baby shower gift, as you know the new mom will use them.

The new Spring collection had my uterus crying out for a baby girl, as these shoes are ultra cute. These perched pals soft soles are seriously amazing and probably go with any outfit. *Cry* I just love them.

For toddlers on the go, I love these floral geo soft soles, which look just like shoe and less like a slipper. Both are $27 each. I’m not going to leave the boys out, because I do love boys and boy shoes. What’s cuter than a puppy so long it covers two shoes, like on these Dachshund soft soles for $27?

We love coupons, which is why we have so many of them in our coupon forum, where you’ll also find this and more Robeez coupon codes.

Sportcheck Canada: Free Shipping On Mother’s Day Gifts

Posted by on April 23, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Sportcheck Canada: Free Shipping On Mothers Day Gifts

Sportchek has a very enticing deal on right now to save you money on your Mother’s Day gift purchase. Technically, the gift doesn’t have to be for Mom, it just has to come from the Mother’s Day gift ideas on the Sportchek website, and you’ll score free shipping. This is a pretty sweet deal as free shipping is normally on a $99 purchase. You just have to add one of the gift ideas to get free shipping on your whole order (even if not all the items are on the list).

Being a mom, I of course looked for some gifts that I would love this Mother’s Day. I am interested in a wide range of fitness activities so something that will promote me working out is always a good gift idea in my books.

I’ve always wondered if I could benefit from a Fitbit Zip wireless activity tracker. I’ve heard so much buzz about this and while I wouldn’t buy it for myself, I think this makes a great splurge as a gift. Not just a pedometer, it tracks your distance and calories burned too. Once you sync your information, you can compare it to other days, motivate yourself and engage in competitions. $59.99

A new tank is always a welcome addition to my wardrobe and I’m loving this Diadora Yoga Virsana two layer tank. My only problem? Purple, green or black? $44.99

With many different categories of gifts including fitness, yoga, golf, tech accessories and lifestyle, I know any mom would love a gift shipped for free from Sportchek.

Shop.ca: Paderno 12-Piece Canadiana SS Cookware Set Only $300

Posted by on April 23, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Shop.ca: Paderno 12 Piece Canadiana SS Cookware Set Only $300

I am seeing quite a few great deals on cookware and cookware sets lately, probably because they make amazing wedding gifts. This Paderno 12-piece Canadiana stainless steel cookware set from Shop.ca is the ultimate steal. It was $999.99, and is now $299.99, saving you $700. I check Paderno’s website, and they are selling this set for $949. Use our exclusive promo code and you just took off another $10, making this set now only $289.99.

I think cookware makes the ultimate wedding gift for a new couple because lets face it, they are going to have to cook at some point. If they are living on their own already, they make just have cheap pieces they bought haphazardly. Even an older newly married couple might be able to benefit from a new cookware set. My cookware has taken a beating and I would love to get remarried simply for the cookware gift.

This set is made in Canada, which is always awesome. It also boasts an encapsulated bottom for efficient heat conduction, precise fitting lids and everything is dishwasher safe and safe for all cooktops.

You’ll get:

  • three saucepans – 1.5L, 2L and 3L
  • 6.5L dutch oven
  • 2.5L steamer
  • 3L saute pan
  • 24cm ceramic non-stick frying pan
  • five lids

Everything comes with a 25-year warranty and Shop.ca always offers free shipping.

Sears Canada: Keurig Platinum Brewer only $70

Sears Canada: Keurig Platinum Brewer only $70

Sears has a fantastic deal going on with the Keurig Platinum single serve brewer, now only $79.99, was $199.99, saving you a whopping 60%! Add the $10 off coupon found in our coupon forum and you’ll get this brewer for only $69.99.

I don’t drink coffee and my husband has a Tassimo, so I don’t know anything about Keurig, but I can tell you that this is a good deal for such a deluxe brewer. I can also tell you that 31 reviewers on Sears website all love it and give it five star ratings and say it is “the perfect kitchen appliance”.

Costco sells this brewer for $159.99, Walmart sells it for $148 and Amazon for $142.98, so this really is a phenomenal deal, which I would wait to get as it probably will sell out quickly. If your Mom needs a new coffee maker, consider this is steal and a great Mother’s Day gift idea.

So, what makes this a platinum brewer? It has a brew selector and enhanced quiet brewing technology. It has a programmable LCD control centre and auto on and shut off, as well as temperature control. It also looks nice in black and stainless steel.

Sears offers free shipping on orders over $99, so you might want to get yourself a little somethin-somethin, as with the savings you’ll get on this machine, your extra items are seemingly free!

Walmart Canada: Playtex Diaper Genie Only $30

Posted by on April 23, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Walmart Canada: Playtex Diaper Genie Only $30

If you are about to have a baby or need a baby shower gift, you should check out the deal on the Playtex Diaper Genie Elite disposal system at Walmart. It is regularly priced at $44.97, but now only $29.97.

Of course I’m going to price compare this sale to other stores for you so you know you are getting the best deal. Toys R Us has it for $45.99 and Amazon has it for $44.97. You are getting it for $15 less than anywhere else, plus you’ll get free shipping.

I had a diaper genie that was handed down to me with my first baby and it was definitely a gift from smelling poopy diapers. I wished I still had it once my youngest was born because we got a puppy not long after this who liked to steal and eat diapers. Let me tell you, that is not a fun mess to clean up. If the diapers weren’t right into a garbage she couldn’t get into (so not a bathroom or laundry room garbage can), she would be able to get them.

This specific diaper genie is really cool as it has a foot pedal to open it so you don’t need your hands, which, coincidentally, when you have a new baby, you won’t have use of anymore. Apparently you don’t even need to bend over, which is always a score too with a new baby, because for me anyway, it might be hard to bend back up.

Sears Canada: 35% Off Gladiator Garage Flooring, Storage & Accessories

With Spring comes Spring cleaning and if your garage is a bomb and you’d like it not to be, you should check out the 35% off Gladiator garage flooring, storage and more sale at Sears.

My garage has never been show-worthy with stuff cluttered everywhere, dirt on the floor and vehicles haphazardly parked in there during the Winter. I’d really love to see it a lot more organized, neat and clean. We might need some help with this.

These Gladiator garage flooring tiles have excellent reviews and ratings and can be driven on right after their very easily click and lock installation. You can get charcoal or silver, but I think both look nice in a pattern. These were $29.99 for a four-pack, but now $14.99, which is actually 50% off, so a super deal.

If you need a spot to store your tools and more, check out all the gearboxes available, like this Gladiator 2 full door modular gearbox. It was regularly $229.99, now $149.99.

This Gladiator horizontal bike hook is totally handy for keeping bikes off the ground so you can actually park your cars in the garage. It was $29.99, now $19.49.

Sears offers free shipping on a $99 spend.

Sirius XM Coupon Code: Save Up To $100 On A Membership

Sirius XM Coupon Code: Save Up To $100 On A Membership

Use the promo code to save $100 on your Sirius XM radio subscription – either new or renewal.

Click here to shop @ Siriusxm.ca now

  • Coupon Code: SAVE50PA
  • Discount: Up to $100 off your subscription
  • Expiry: Unknown

Now, there aren’t many details surrounding this coupon, but we did receive a comment on our Sirius XM coupon page that this coupon in fact worked on a renewal and the person received $100 off. So, I’m not sure what the up to means, but you’ll have to try it for yourself when starting a new subscription or renewing.

I don’t have Sirius XM radio, although I think I would like it. I am the person who has their radio scan button constantly pressed as I look for a song I like or at least a station where there is no talk or commercial on at that moment. Usually I’ll get the last 40 seconds of a song before I’m pressing the button again. It is irritating for me and all my passengers.

If I had Sirius radio I know exactly what I would listen to, probably constantly: Pearl Jam Radio. As I am a member of Ten Club, I can listen to it on my computer, but not in my vehicle, which is really when I listen to most of music. In fact, I’m listening to it right now while I work, and I’d love to keep listening when I leave to go get my kids this afternoon. So, now I’m off to see if my husband would love to get me this for a Mother’s Day gift!
