New York Fries: Win A Real Gold Poutine Fork?!

What?! Check out this current New York Fries contest for your chance to win a real gold Poutine Fork. Avid poutine lovers, this one is for you. New York Fries Canada is giving away a free 24-carat gold fork to someone with some pretty solid pig latin skills on International Bacon Day which happens to fall on September 5th. They are also launching their new Bacon Double Cheese Poutine which is another way to celebrate the occasion for sure.

There will be a total of 108 of these 24-carat gold plated poutine forks to give away for free across Canada, and the rules are pretty simple. To win one for yourself, you have to be the very first person to visit a participating New York Fries Canada location on the 5th of September. Then you must correctly say “Bacon Double Cheese Poutine” in Pig Latin, and voila! Read the rest of this entry »

Save Money By Preparing Your Own Back To School Meals

Save Money By Preparing Your Own Back To School Meals

Back to school… for some, these words are a Godsend, and for others they represent their last baby going to school (I’m the latter, sniff sniff). Back to school will be an incredibly busy time with new jobs, kids in school, fall activities starting for everyone, and the general business of life starting after the summer. It’s easy to eat out for meals when you’re on the run, but just think about the excess money and decreased health benefits in take-out dinners. Michael Pollan is a food authority in U.S.A, and he is a proponent of eating whole foods, and most importantly cooking those foods at home. He says the best thing that North Americans can do to improve their health (and reduce the cost of our health care) is to make our meals at home, even if they are not the healthiest meals possible.  Easier said than done, right?  Especially with the time constraints we all face, like a busy career and children.  How can we save money by preparing our family’s meals?

DIY: 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

DIY: 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Mmmm Peanut Butter Cookies. Who could resist? Now you won’t have to! There is a super simple recipe to make Peanut Butter Cookies that only requires 3 ingredients, and if you have peanut allergies then you can substitute the peanut butter with the popular peanut-free butter and still get yummy cookies. I believe there is a brand of it called Wow Butter, but I am sure there are plenty of alternatives and you may already have a favourite. Nobody has to be left out of peanut butter cookies anymore. Chances are you already have these three ingredients around your house, so not only are these cookies super simple but they are also super frugal. I just adore that combination.

Burger King Canada: 10 Chicken Nuggets for Just $1.99! *BUMP*

Burger King has a great new deal available across Canada. Burger King will be offering 10 delicious Chicken Nuggets for only $1.99. While the price is not as low as the last promotion where 10 chicken nuggets were $1.79, the price is still fantastic for that many chicken nuggets.This low price will be available for a limited time only. This time, the start date will vary depending on the store. I called a few Burger King locations near me and some have started the promo while others will start it around August 20th.

No coupon is required for this Burger King Canada deal, just head on over to your local restaurant and enjoy the savings. I am not going to question what these nuggets are made of, if they can sell them for less than $0.20 each. But if your kids love Burger King chicken nuggets, then don’t miss out. I mean, where else could you get 10 chicken nuggets for just $1.99? Read the rest of this entry »

Save Money By Learning To Pick Ripe Fruit

Save Money By Learning To Pick Ripe Fruit

The other day I was at a friend’s BBQ and was telling her about how amazing grilled pineapple is fresh off the BBQ. I was lamenting not bringing along a pineapple to share. At first she politely danced around my insistence that it was delicious and she mentioned her husband did not like pineapple. Eventually, she quietly admitted to me that she loved pineapple but could never pick a good one!

Many fruits are in their prime right now, there is simply no reason to waste money on under ripe or spoiled fruit. Read the rest of this entry »

7 DIY Popsicle & Ice Cream Treats For Summer

Posted by on July 16, 2015 at 8:00 PM

7 DIY Popsicle & Ice Cream Treats For Summer

When the temperatures rise, my entire family starts asking for cold and creamy treats more often. Have you priced out the ice cream and frozen treat aisle lately at the grocery store? A carton of ice cream or dessert popsicles are ranging from $4-$7 a box according to my Flipp App, and that is the sale prices. Going out for ice cream is no cheap treat for a family, with many ice cream treats costing $4 or $5 per person. Frozen yogurt places have a low starting price, but by the time you add any toppings many of us end up spending on average $4-$6 for our treat. While freezies are cheap, they do not offer much in the nutrition or flavour department. Read the rest of this entry »

David’s Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11-12 (In-Stores ONLY)

Posted by on July 11, 2015 at 11:30 AM

Davids Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11 12 (In Stores ONLY)

What are your plans for the weekend? If they involve leaving the house (as they should with the nice weather!), then make sure to stop by a David’s Tea store to get free tea for your kids.

It’s too bad that this offer doesn’t extend to adult tea orders but hey, a freebie is a freebie!

On their David’s Tea’s Facebook, where this deal was original posted, the only specification is that the free tea is for kids aged 12 and under. This makes me wonder if I would be able to get a drink for my one year old and then secretly drink it myself… just kidding! Davids Tea: Free Tea For Kids July 11 12 (In Stores ONLY)

Personally, I think this is a fantastic opportunity to bond with your kids and get some sunshine. There is no mention on their Facebook as to whether this offer is only restricted to hot teas, so my assumption would be that you could ask for an iced tea for your kid(s) and maybe even grab a couple of sips for yourself when they’re not looking.

Speaking of David’s Tea, did you know that you can also shop online at their site? As you can see from our David’s Tea coupon page for them, they offer free shipping on orders over $50, 3 free samples with every order and they have a slew of web only specials to choose from that you wouldn’t be able to get in-stores. It may be the middle of summer, but you could for instance pick up tea for the tree on sale for just $3 (50% off). You can either get the santa’s secret, the sleigh ride or the eggnog and all of these basically include a sample of tea within a lovely limited edition printed tin ornament.

There are also a two teas at 40% off: the bubbi’s baklava, on sale for $28.50 (was $47.50) and the cocomint cream, which come down to just $22.50 (was $37.50) for 250g.

Be sure to also read Brooke’s post about the different daily freebies you can get at 7-Eleven until July 17th!

(July 10th Only!) Buy Any Dozen Doughnuts & Get A Second Dozen Glazed Dozen For $.78 Cents @ Krispy Kreme Canada (EXPIRED)

(July 10th Only!) Buy Any Dozen Doughnuts & Get A Second Dozen Glazed Dozen For $.78 Cents @ Krispy Kreme Canada (EXPIRED)

Yum, doughnuts for a crowd!  Check out this fantastic birthday deal at Krispy Kreme that is today only! When you buy one dozen doughnuts of any kind, you can receive a second dozen of the famous original glazed doughnuts for only $.78 cents!

Nom nom nom! Don’t mind me, I was just enjoying the picture of the delicious Krispy Kreme doughnut cake there. While there is not a location close to me, you can score an awesome bunch of doughnuts today and make one of those cakes for your very own. Krispy Kreme is celebrating its 78th birthday and inviting all of us to join in the fun. My internet research is telling me that these glazed doughnut dozens usually retail for $7.99 and the assorted dozens retail for $8.99. That means you could have two dozen glazed doughnuts for $8.76. That is only $.37 per doughnut, yahoo!

Now the good news is with this deal you can have a whole variety of doughnuts if you choose. The first dozen you buy could either be a multi-pack or a pack of original glazed. The second pack that is for $.78 only includes the original glazed doughnuts. Either way you are getting quite a mound of doughnuts.

You can find Krispy Kreme doughnuts at several locations across Canada. Here is the current list of cities that have Krispy Kreme locations. Check if there is a location near you!

Quebec:

  • Quebec City
  • Greenfield Park

British Columbia:

  • Delta

Ontario:

  • Toronto Downtown in two locations
  • Mississauga

My friend’s birthday is coming up. If I had a location closer to me, I would consider swinging by and making that birthday cake for her. Alternatively, many kids have soccer and swim meets right now. You could be the hero and show up with doughnuts for everyone. Sharing Krispy Kreme doughnuts will surely make you many friends in the stands.

For the truly daring, you may want to check out this list over at Dine And Ditch. There is a whole slew of pictures of recipes that use Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on this blogger’s post. Alternatively, if you have some leftover the next day, my old roommate swore they were delicious after putting them in a waffle iron. These doughnuts are best when they are warm, so I bet it is delicious!

Fancy beverages from Starbucks and Timmies can be quite expensive, but there are ways to treat yourself in a similar fashion, from the comfort of your own home and using the foodstuffs in your cupboards. While on my extensive internet travels, I saw this cute little infographic showing you some ways to make variations on your regular hot chocolate drinks. Here it is (click for larger):

Glitch?!? Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea Only $4 & Completely Free Shipping Coupon Code @ Teavana

Posted by on July 2, 2015 at 9:00 AM

Glitch?!? Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea Only $4 & Completely Free Shipping Coupon Code @ Teavana

Do you love fancy tea as much as I do?  Score some of Teavana’s Orange Chocolate Sweet  Spice Herbal Tea that was $7.98 for 2 oz. but is now only $3.99. Teavana has released a coupon code for completely free shipping that is intended as a US only code, but will give you free shipping with no minimum to Canada also!

Click here to buy the Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea @  Teavana now

  • Coupon Code: FIREWORKS
  • Discount: Free shipping with no minimum
  • Expires: 5th July 2015

I am giddy with excitement about this deal Bargainmoosers, as I have some truly amazing tea deals to share with you today. First off, as I mentioned above Teavana has released a free shipping code that is intended to give Americans free shipping all weekend for the holiday. I have some good news, the coupon code works and ships free to Canada!

I immediately headed over to the sale section to see what delicious teas I could score at a bargain price. Right now Teavana has discounted the Pumpkin Spice Brulee Oolong by 50%! This is a great time to stock up on some delicious tea for fall. This herbal tea sounds delicious with flavours of orange, chocolate and hints of chilli.

If you enjoy bringing your tea habit into the summertime as iced tea, then you will be excited about this next deal. Grab the Sangria Punch Black Tea that was $9.98 but is now only $4.99. I have been eyeing this Sangria flavoured tea for over a month now but was not willing to pay the shipping costs to try it. I sacrificed for you Bargainmoosers and ordered some for myself to make sure that code works. With flavours of red wine grapes, citrus, hibiscus and currents, this sounds like a delicious tea to sip cold on a hot summer day. Check out my cart here where I ordered this tea:

Glitch?!? Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice Herbal Tea Only $4 & Completely Free Shipping Coupon Code @ Teavana

If you are not sure how to brew loose-leaf tea for summer, you should also pick up the Blue Infusion Tea Pitcher. This pitcher was $16.89 but now is only $13.97. That may seem like a slim discount, but when you compare it to the slightly larger $28 Perfect Pitcher at David’s Tea, this pitcher at Teavana that functions the same for iced tea is a steal. I bought the David’s Tea pitcher and it is amazing, but I wish I had waited for the deal on this smaller pitcher.

We have seen a similar shipping glitch from Teavana that I blogged last month. I ordered the last time and my order was to my door within three days. I was very happy with both the quality and quickness of my order. If you like these teas, I would order now before Teavana sees this glitch! Teavana does ship from the states, but duties are prepaid at checkout if you spend over $20, and there are no duty costs for orders under $20.
