Free Shipping Deals & Coupons This Weekend!

While on my daily internet travels, I noticed that a number of stores are offering free shipping at the moment – stores which usually have a threshold to get free shipping to your home. I thought I’d pull them together in a roundup for you, so you can see if there’s anything you’d like to buy. We probably wouldn’t do a blog post for each of these individual deals as they may not be quite “hot” enough for that, but it’s nice to see them in a breakdown like this.

DIY Sprinkler Idea!

Posted by on July 26, 2015 at 8:04 AM

DIY Sprinkler Idea!

I am always on the lookout for fun and frugal ideas for the kids in the summer, and I saw this one on Pinterest. It’s a DIY sprinkler! You can buy this type of thing in Toys R Us but it will cost you a bit, and probably break after one season anyway.

Here’s how you use a couple of common household items to make your own! Depending on what ages your kids are, they could even make this one themselves. Simply get an empty 2 litre bottle, punch/drill some holes in it, and attach it to the hose with duct tape.

There you go – hours of fun for the kids in the garden. And the cost? Zero.

While they’re out there, maybe try out some of these DIY popsicle and ice-cream recipes.

A couple of days ago, Brooke posted a deal on this Build-on-Bricks coffee mug from Maddeal here, and the price including shipping was coming in at around $22. At the time of writing, it was the best deal that we could find… but a Mooser in the comments mentioned that they were also on sale at Amazon.ca. I was browsing over there this morning and I actually noticed one seller retailing the red version of the funky mug at an even better price – it’s now only $17.14 with free shipping (that’s 70% off)!

Up to 62% off Crayola Back To School Supplies @ Toys R Us Canada & Free Ship To Store!

I’m thinking that we’re coming up to back-to-school time, and I am sure many of you have already started picking up a few pieces here and there, instead of having a last-minute rush for supplies next month. I was looking at some Crayola items on Toys R Us for my daughter, and I noticed that there were a number of fairly highly discounted items (some at up to 62% off). I personally LOVE the Crayola brand and I am sure you do too, so I thought I’d put together this list of a few items that are discounted and might be of interest to you.

How To Spot Fake Freebies

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

How To Spot Fake Freebies

* BUMP for new eyes.  I first published this post back in 2012, but it’s still VERY relevant today. Please have a read! *

While we all love a good freebie, there are some nasty people out there who might try to take advantage of that fact. Some scammers may set up fake freebie websites in order to get hold of your personal information for nefarious purposes! By educating yourself a little bit in how to spot fake freebie websites, you can minimise your chances of anything bad happening with your personal data. Our Canadian freebies section is getting busier and busier, so it’s worth knowing what to look for.

Page design – Basically, does the website look a bit crap? It can be the first sign of a fake freebie site that has been thrown together just for the purpose of data gathering. A genuine site tends to have a well polished finish, no broken links, well laid out.

Check the domain – If you see a freebie from a specific company, look at the name of the site in the address bar. Have you ever heard of it before? Is it trying to copy the domain name of a well-known site, by using periods or hyphens, to try and make you think it’s somewhere else? A general rule is that if a site has the word free in it, it’s probably not a legit freebie – it’s been set up solely for the purpose of advertising something free. Read the rest of this entry »

Marvel Costumes from only $8.42 @ Amazon.ca!! * HOT *

I’m a fan of the Marvel universe in all its incarnations. That’s why I was browsing the Marvel section on Amazon.ca, to see what I could see. I spotted some great prices on some kids’ costumes – with items starting from only $8.42! That’s a really low price point for some authentic Marvel branded costumes and it’s definitely worth telling you guys about!

(NOTE: Scroll down and hit the “costumes” link half way down the page)

There are many costumes on offer, from $8.42 and upwards. The price of each depends on what size of a costume you choose; some sizing is a much better deal than others. Here are a few of the most stand-out bargains that I can currently see (I am bolding the best prices in each):

Avengers Assemble Iron Man was $51.99:

  • Small = $32.34
  • Medium = $8.42 $8.71
  • Large = $8.42 $8.66

(Save 48%) Crayola Paint Maker now only $14 @ Amazon.ca!

I love Crayola items. My 5 year old daughter loves Crayola items. My 2 year old daughter is learning to love Crayola items. They’re a hit in our household and they never go out of fashion. That’s why when I spotted this deal on the Crayola Paint Maker from Amazon.ca, I just HAD to write about it to let the Moosers know. Originally priced at $36.99, you can pick up the Crayola Paint Maker just now for only $14!

For those of you with Amazon Prime anyway, you can order the above item for $14 and you don’t have to worry about shipping costs – there won’t be any extra. Read the rest of this entry »

Fun & Frugal: Ice-Cream in a Bag!

Posted by on July 23, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Fun & Frugal: Ice Cream in a Bag!

A couple of days ago, I shared a delicious coffee crunch ice-cream recipe here, a handy little concoction for the summer. And this morning on Pinterest, I was looking for ideas for the kids during the summer, and I saw this idea – ice-cream in a bag! It’s a really easy recipe to make, plus you can have a little fun in doing so.

Basically, just throw these ingredients in a small Ziploc bag then seal it up:

  • A 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 and a 1/2 teaspoons sugar

Then, grab yourself a larger Ziploc bag. Put the first bag in there, and then fill with ice cubes and seal it up. Throw the bag around the yard for ten minutes, giving it a good shake. You can play catch with the kids! Once it’s all mixed up, it’s ready to eat.

4 Ingredient Coffee Crunch Ice Cream!

Posted by on July 21, 2015 at 7:19 AM

4 Ingredient Coffee Crunch Ice Cream!

I saw this ice-cream recipe on Pinterest and I just HAD to share. I’ve never made my own ice-cream but I am really tempted to try this out. This recipe will make about 3 pints of home-made ice-cream.

This is all that you will need in terms of ingredients:

  • Half cup cold coffee
  • ¾ cup of choc chips
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups cream

For those of us who bake regularly, all these are staple ingredients that are in my fridge and cupboards anyway.

What you need in terms of equipment:

  • Bowls
  • Whisk
  • Electric mixer
  • Spatula
  • Freezer container

How to make the ice-cream:

  1. Combine the coffee and milk in a bowl
  2. Whisk the above until it’s smooth
  3. (Medium speed) In the electric mixer, beat the cream until you see stiff peaks
  4. (Low speed) Slowly add the coffee mixture
  5. (Medium speed) Beat until thickened
  6. Fold in your choc chips with a spatula
  7. Put in the freezer container, and freeze for at least 6 hours

Sounds pretty easy, eh? And looks delicious too. Will you give it a try?

(Thanks Bakedbyanintrovert!)
