Best Buy: Monarch Computer Desk 7 Was $400 | Now $175 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Best Buy: Monarch Computer Desk 7 Was $400 | Now $175 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada actually has a swell deal on a new computer desk / work table for your home. Originally $400, these Monarch Computer Desks are on sale for just $174.99 with free shipping compliments of Best Buy.

This desk is versatile as you can configure it to be a left-facing desk or a right-facing desk when you assemble it. This change essentially effects which side the storage drawers are put. if you are placing your desk in an area where one side is hindered, then this is an essential customizable option for your new desk.

There are four desk colours to choose from:

My price comparisons confirmed that this is indeed a very good deal. Let us do some comparing.

Lowes Canada sells the sale desk in the same four colours. The price at Lowes ranges from $240.55 for taupe and natural up to $285 for white or cappuccino. Home Depot Canada sells all four colours for $283 each. Staples Canada is a bit more reasonable at $239.20 per desk. I also borrowed a review from Staples as there are no reviews at best Buy Canada:

This is a decent desk for the price. It’s easy enough to assemble, but, for such a simple looking desk, it took me longer than I expected (4 hours). It’s not the sturdiest (e.g. the only thing connecting the set of drawers to the table top is a couple screws). However, if you don’t plan to move it around a lot, then it should be fine. Overall, happy with it. Big enough without being too big. Simple, nice design

That gives you a little more information on what the desk is like in your hands. It is a shame that the set of drawers only connect via a few screws, but you could always reinforce that connection with some adhesive strips or more screws if you were not planning on changing the configuration. I prefer not to make permanent modifications to my furniture in case I need to disassemble and move it at some point.

Overall, I think this desk is an excellent buy. if you are looking for a more minimalistic model, then the Monarch Computer Desk – Cappuccino and the Monarch Computer Desk – Dark Taupe on sale from $399.99 down to $199.99 might be a good option. In my opinion, they just have fewer features and cost more.

I also wanted to mention the sale going on at Best Buy Canada. In the furniture section they are offering the following tiered deal:

  • Buy one get 20% off
  • Buy two get 30% off
  • Buy three get 40% off

These discounts are only valid on regular-priced furniture, thus they exclude the deal above. I think this deal is better anyway – especially if you are not buying desks in bulk!

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Patio Furniture

Posted by on June 21, 2015 at 5:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Patio Furniture

Walmart Canada is hosting a patio clearance sale with up to 50% off tables, benches, seating, fireplaces, and more.

This hometrends 7-Piece Wicker Dining Set is one of the best deals for a patio dining set that will accommodate larger families or guests. The set includes six wicker chairs with cushions and a glass-top table.  The cushions are a burgundy-red and fit perfectly on each wicker seat for extra comfort. The entire set, apart from the cushions, is weatherproof. This set is also designed to be UV, weather, and colour fast fade resistant. Originally $798, the seven-piece set is on sale for $400.

Next, this Bond Petra Outdoor Gas Fire Pit is the excellent substitute to a real fireplace. Many cities have a fire ban on during the summer months when the ground is so dry. I know that Alberta and British Columbia have not got the rain they should have so far this year. Rather than BBQ-ing without a fire, purchase this gas fire pit instead. Originally $298, the fire pit is now on sale for $150. It has a natural stone finish, and is designed to look like a camp style fire pit. With 50,000 BTU output, this fire will keep you toasty warm.

This hometrends Rushreed Faux Wood Top Patio Side Table will give you a place to rest your drink when you are not around the patio dining table. Regularly $54 each, these side tables are now on sale for $25.

The GREY Round Hand Made Terrazzo Garden Burner will make an excellent accent for your dining room or side table. They will also provide extra light when night falls and you are having fun in the backyard. Originally $29.96, the burners are now on sale for $14.99 each. These are actually hefty little burners made out of rock as they weigh in around 11 lbs fully assembled.

If you only need a small dining set, then purchase the hometrends 5-Piece Dining Set With Padded Sling Chairs on sale from $534 down to $275. The set includes four chairs and a tiled mosaic table. One reviewer said:

The patio set is beautiful although it took 3 hours with 2 people to put together.  The table top is quite heavy so won’t get knocked over by the wind, hopefully.  Chairs took the longest to put together. 

Enjoy free shipping on all orders of $50 or more except to remote locations.

(Half Price) Mesh Multifunction Task Chair Now Only $100 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Posted by on May 19, 2015 at 12:00 PM

(Half Price) Mesh Multifunction Task Chair Now Only $100 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

Add a little comfort to your workspace with the Mesh Multifunction Task Chair. This office chair was $199.91 but now is only $99.95. You also meet the minimum for completely free shipping with this purchase.

I do not have a dedicated office space currently in my home, but I should. I have noticed lately that sitting at my kitchen table to work is not a good solution for my back. I have been trying to compensate with a support pillow against my spine, but I am getting to the point where I need to give in and buy an office chair.

The price on this Mesh Multifunction Task Chair is a looking great. This chair has a thick padded seat and a mesh back giving you a little breathability. On this seat, you can adjust both the height and the tilt so the chair is set to a comfortable position. The arms are also adjustable for optimum comfort. On the bottom are casters intended to glide across the carpet. It also has a one-year warranty included.

$10 off $100 Extra Coupon Code

Anna mentioned yesterday in her blog post about the HP LaserJet Pro that anyone on the Staples Canada e-mailing list received a $10 off $100 coupon in their e-mail on the 13th May 2015. If you do not have one of these codes we have seven codes to gift. Leave us a note in the comments and we will e-mail you a code. Do not wait if you want this code, it expires today (19th May 2015)! Anyone else who has a coupon code they are not using, feel free to post it in the comments so others can score this deal. You will need to add a small filler to use this coupon code. I recommend the 10 Pack Staples Lead Pencil for $0.96. alternatively, we have a special coupon link for $10 off $100 here too.

Price Comparison

No one is carrying this exact model of chair, I think it is exclusive to Staples.ca. I looked at some comparable office chairs and here is what I found. At BestBuy.ca, the cheapest mesh back office chair I could find was the Mesh Back Contemporary Office Chair for $139.99. On Amazon.ca, I found the Lorell Executive Mid-back Work Chair on sale for $154.66. Over at Costco.ca, you could pick up the comparable Pro-Line II Deluxe Air Grid Back Ergonomic Office Chair for $189.99.

Reviews

The reviews on this chair over at Staples are looking great. The chair carries a four out of five-star rating and currently 77 people have left a review. I think this chair has been a part of the Staples product line for a while now, as the reviews go as far back as 2011. There are plenty of current reviews. Here is one from the past few months.

(Half Price) Mesh Multifunction Task Chair Now Only $100 & Free Shipping @ Staples.ca

If you need a new office chair, this deal is a solid purchase. I need to consider relieving that back pain and giving myself a little more support too. Jump on this deal now, we have not seen a deal on this chair this good in quite a while.

NCIX.com: 80% Off iQ TV Top Shelves & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 12, 2015 at 9:00 AM

NCIX.com: 80% Off iQ TV Top Shelves & Free Shipping

NCIX.com has discounted iQ TV Top Shelves by 80% with free shipping. Pick up one, two, or all three sizes of this TV shelf during the NCIX.com sale.

There are three different sized shelves to choose from on NCIX.com’s website. Each shelf attaches to the top of your TV and is designed to hold a soundbar for surround sound systems or other paraphernalia. The discounted iQ TV shelves are as follows:

  • 30″ x 6″ – Was $99 | Now $19
  • 12″ x 10″ – $69 | Now $14
  • 12″ x 6″ – $49 | Now $9

These are the lowest prices I have seen for these shelves, and I conducted ample research. I looked at four different companies that have these products. The first two companies were the same – so I just listed that price point once. Here are three different retailer’s prices for these shelves.

London Drugs: (no shipping)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $99.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $69.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $49.99

Visions Electronics (free shipping)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $79.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $59.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $39.99

Memory Express (shipping is extra approx. $8.99)

  • 30″ x 6″ – $29.99
  • 12″ x 10″ – $19.99
  • 12″ x 6″ – $14.99

While Memory Express comes close, you would have to pay shipping on top of those shelf prices, which really makes their price far less appealing than the prices at NCIX.com.

The three different sized TV shelves will accommodate speakers or soundbars of various sizes. Purchase the one that is closest to the shape and dimensions of your own soundbar. Alternatively, one of these would actually work really well for movies. With a bookend on each end, you could place your Blu-Rays and DVDs in between – on display. The 30″ x 6″ might be a good shelf for this use.

One reviewer said:

Perfect for locating something relatively small like the non console style cable boxes on top of your LCD TV. Especially handy for wall mounted TVs that are intended to swivel for viewing from different room locations.

He also mentioned that the stand does not actually clamp to your TV. This could be both a negative and a positive. As the stand does not clamp down, it will not mark up your television. However, the stand is not quite as stable as a stand that does clamp.

I am very pleased with this deal as the discount is substantial and free shipping is an amazing benefit because these shelves can be a bit heavy (up to 3 lbs).

Sumo Lounge Promo Code: Omni Reloaded Chair Was $199 | Now $99

If you are looking for a portable, lightweight and positionable bean bag chair for by the pool, at the beach, playing video games and more, the Omni Reloaded from Sumo Lounge is your chair. Regularly $199, you’ll get a discount of $100 by entering the coupon code below, paying only $99 with free shipping for this item!

Click here to shop @ Sumolounge.ca now

  • Coupon Code: OMNIR99
  • Discount: $100 off the Omni Reloaded
  • Expiry: Unknown

I actually have this versatile adult bean bag chair in fuchsia. I got mine for taking camping, as it packs down easily and has its own carrying case. The neon pink was a welcome addition to our natural surroundings. To be honest, I didn’t get to sit in my chair a lot, as my kids stole it from me most of the time. When the kids were off riding their bikes, I would relax and lay back to read and found it comfortable, which is saying a lot since I have many back issues.

The only thing I didn’t like it for with camping is that I was too low to the grounds and spiders kept crawling on me. So, I moved the chair to our basement, where we use it when we play video games. It works quite nicely for this. If I do get a pool one day, I am going to use it as a lounger by the pool and maybe get a few more to match, especially at this hot price.

It looks like only the three colours are left in stock, which are orange, lime and fuchsia. It is nice to get a bright colour like these for a chair like this. You wouldn’t want to get a boring neutral.

There are plenty of reviews on the Sumo Lounge site, like this one:

My wife loves to read in be but struggles to find a comfortable position with various pillows. I figured the Sumo Lounge would be a lot more comfortable. My wife absolutely loves it. The lounge provides great support and comfort. If you like to read and watch TV in bed you must purchase this product.

I find it very interesting that his wife uses it to read in bed. I’m going to totally have to try this! I also struggle to find a comfortable position while reading in bed.

Bargainmoosers, what do you think of this chair?

Best Buy Canada: Durian Accent Chair Was $400 | Now $99 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 9:56 AM

Best Buy Canada: Durian Accent Chair Was $400 | Now $99 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

If you are looking for a very inexpensive way to add decor and seating to your home, Best Buy’s deal today only will do you well. Get the Durian accent chair, with your choice of three colours for only $99.99, regularly $400. Because this item is over $25, you’ll also get free shipping.

As I said, there are three colour choices for this stylish chair – rice paper (a light neutral), berry (a deep red) and aubergine (dark purple).

I bought some inexpensive accent chairs similar to this from Ikea when I was staging my home. Too bad they are seriously uncomfortable to sit on. My husband and I have been complaining to each other about these chairs and how we should buy new ones. These Durian chairs look much more comfortable with a more-full cushion and more padding around the back of the chair. I also love the metal legs, which add more style to the chair with a modern touch on a classic chair.

While I didn’t find this chair at other retailers, I see through my research that we blogged this chair in December, when it was on sale for $200. This means this is a seriously low price.

I did shop around at other retailers for similar looking chairs and found this one at Lowe’s, which does have an ottoman, but sells for $300. This Metro chair from Walmart has a similar look, although with a square back and not as comfy of a cushion and sells for $200.

If you are planning on staging your home, adding a chair for an accent, or even using these chairs at the dining table, this is a great buy. Chairs can be so expensive, so it is nice when a deal like this comes along and you can get this chair to your home for less than a hundred bucks.

There is one review on this chair (on the aubergine):

Comfortable and good looking chair.

The ratings are also high, with two four star and one five star rating.

Sears Canada: Exclusive Inventory Reduction Sale

Sears Canada: Exclusive Inventory Reduction Sale

Sears is having an incredible inventory reduction sale on items like furniture, tools, outdoor living, decor and more. We’ve got an exclusive link for our readers to have a first crack at this sale, as it doesn’t officially start until tomorrow, but you can shop today!

There are 117 items on sale at their final price as Sears tries to get rid of items to make room for new ones. I’m actually really interested in the furniture and outdoor items on sale, as I need a few things! It is really difficult for me to price compare a lot of the items, but I still see some fantastic prices.

This Diablo pub-height dining table is 50% off, which I think is a fantastic deal for a tablet. Regularly $199.99, it is on sale for $99.99. The chairs are not included, but I think this item is great even without chairs. It has an industrial look, with an integrated wine rack. It would great on its own as a bar. It also has fantastic reviews.

If you need a new garage door opener, check out the Craftsman/MD 1/2 HP belt drive garage door opener, which was $349.99 and now $249.99. Craftsman is a brand that Sears sells so I couldn’t price compare, but did find that other belt driven 1/2HP openers sold around the $300 range. Again, this is another item with fantastic reviews, giving it a 4.7 star rating.

What I’m quite interested in is this Curtis bonded leather power motion reclining sofa. I recently bought new living room furniture but finding while it looks good, it is not functional. Everyone is fighting over one coveted spot and my back is crying out for somewhere that I can put my feet up. This one was regularly $1899,99, now $799.99.

I am also looking for an indoor/outdoor rug for my deck and this Alpha collection stripe indoor/outdoor rug fits the bill perfectly. I like the simplicity of the stripes, with three colours choices. The smallest size is regularly $59.99, now $30. The largest size is regularly $399.99, now $200.

Sears offers free shipping with a $99 spend.

Best Buy Canada: Up to 76% Off TechCraft Atrium Furniture & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 3:29 PM

Best Buy Canada: Up to 76% Off TechCraft Atrium Furniture & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Best Buy Canada is offering up to 76% off TechCraft Atrium accent furniture. Receive free shipping on all these pieces as well.

Unfortunately, the awesome front entry Bench with storage is already sold out. However, there are three other furniture pieces to choose from in this sale.

The TechCraft Atrium Storage Wall Hanging Shelf (A10BLHNS42) takes your storage needs and lifts them off the floor. Mount this shelving unit in your front entry, workroom, office, playroom, or even a child’s bedroom. Enjoy more floor space, less clutter, and better storage solutions for mitts, scarves, toys, office supplies, and more. Originally $219.99, the shelf is on sale for $59.99.

Next, the TechCraft Atrium Storage Credenza (A10BLST36) matches the above shelf and is a great solution for lower storage needs. You could even use this as a baby change table by adding on a changing pad to the top. The shelves and baskets provide excellent storage options. I could also see using this in the bottom of a closet if you are limited on room. Children could put their clothes on the shelves and their socks in the baskets. Originally $359.99, the storage unit is on sale for $99.99.

Lastly, purchase the TechCraft Atrium Mirror Cabinet (A10BLMRS20) to match your set, Originally $179.99, this framed mirror is on sale for $49.99. Mirrors are rather pricey, so this unit is worth the $50 just for the mirror alone. However, you also will enjoy extra storage space behind the mirror too! Open up the mirror to reveal storage hooks, a cork board, and a mail slot. There are also hooks below the mirror that can be used for jackets, scarves, umbrellas, and more. If you want to use it in a bathroom, the use the hooks for hanging up wet washcloths. I love having one of these in my entryway so I can make sure I do not look frazzled when I go out.

This fantastic deal is available for today only. If you are looking for some great storage solutions and need a break on furniture prices, then I highly encourage you pick up a few of these matching pieces. As they are black with wicker baskets, they should match most home decors.

Wicker Emporium: Tax Free Ashbury Console Table Was $780 | Now $234 + Shipping

Posted by on March 18, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Wicker Emporium: Tax Free Ashbury Console Table Was $780 | Now $234 + Shipping

Wicker Emporium Canada has a good deal on this Ashbury Console Table made of solid polished acacia wood.Originally $779.99, the table is now on sale for $233.99 plus shipping your home. If you live near a Wicker Emporium, then you can also pick up in store for free. As an added bonus, the table is currently tax free.

This is not a full sized dining table, rather it is a slim (18″) table that can be used as a sideboard table in your dinning room. if you are single or just a couple then this table might work as a dinning table as it does measure 47″ long. I think it would be ideal for a bachelor living in a small apartment. The table is 29″ high – which is the same as my dining room table.

The slim profile makes this a versatile table. Use the table in your hallway or front entry for plants, gloves, hats, pictures, and more. As this is a ‘console’ table, put your TV on top of it while keeping a clean profile. I suggest using cable organizers so the area underneath the table does not look cluttered.

If you cannot pick up in store, then shipping is your only option. Shipping prices vary depending on where you live. To Vancouver Island, I was quoted $53.14 for Purolator Ground (cheapest option). Even with shipping, the table was still under $300.

I know that you can get a side table from Ikea for probably $50 or so – but how long is that table really going to last? There is quite the trend towards ‘Ikea homes’, where every piece of furniture, every kitchen cabinet, and every dish in those cabinets all comes from one place: Ikea. For those who want a timeless piece that they can hand down to their kiddies, I suggest spending a bit more and getting something classic.

This table is also tax free – a nice little bonus since you have to pay for shipping to many provinces. When I demoed my cart, the tax free offer saved me me an additional $25.07 on the table. That is worth almost half the shipping cost.

This is the first time that Wicker Emporium has ever been featured on Bargainmoose. Take some time to check out the website and browse through their sale furniture. You might find a good deal on something you need!

Walmart: Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp Was $31 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 4:24 PM

Walmart: Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp Was $31 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has a great deal on a basic house lamp. The Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp was $30.98 and is now only $15 with free shipping. There are limited quantities available!

This is a nice little white lamp that should match with almost any decor. Pick up matching lamps for your end tables or even use a few of these to brighten up your living room. For some reason, houses are built with hardly any built in lights in the living room. Case and point: my own living room has no lights. While it takes up more space than the dining room and kitchen combined, it has no built in light fixtures. Neither does the bedroom, which i found rather odd. In both rooms I am completely dependent upon lamps.

Given that I do not exactly own a lot of lamps, it is often very dark in both rooms once the sun sets. I wanted to buy two lamps for the bedroom, but my budget was around $40. Thankfully I found a couple nice lamps used, but I could not find decent quality lamps for that budget. I looked at some of the cheaper models on Walmart, but they mainly have 1/5 star reviews. That did not seem promising. While this Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp does not have any reviews, it is from a well-known homeware company. In addition, the original price was just over $30. While not always, original price is often an indicator of quality.

There is limited stock online. You can purchase this online and receive free shipping to your door. If you are heading to Walmart Canada, check to see if your local store has any stock left. Out of my closest four stores, two are already down to limited stock on this lamp.

Whether it is for a children’s bedroom, master bedroom, living room, or study… this is a nice and inexpensive lamp. The white ceramic and lampshade will match with any other decor your might have. Indeed, these accent lamps will melt into the background until they are needed.

Future Shop: AG Home Fashion Shag Rugs Were $110 | Now $60 & No Tax & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 1, 2015 at 4:44 PM

Future Shop: AG Home Fashion Shag Rugs Were $110 | Now $60 & No Tax & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Future shop Canada has discounted two AG Home Fashion Shag 3′ x 5′ Rugs from $109.99 to $59.99. In addition, there will be no tax applied to your order, as all furniture is currently tax-free at Future Shop. The rugs cost over $25, so your order will also ship for free.

For price comparing, I could only find these rugs at Future Shop’s sister store: Best Buy Canada. Currently, Best Buy is selling these rugs for $99.99 ($10 off). Given the size of the rugs, I think Future Shop’s price is very good and this deal is only made stronger with no tax and free shipping. With no tax, you will save a minimum $3 (5%) up to $7.20 (12%) on your new carpet just in taxes.

These are both visually appealing rigs. At 3 feet by 5 feet, the rugs will cover a decent sized area and could be used in a bedroom or as a center rug in a small living room. If your front entry is rather large, this rug might also find a home there. The rugs feature an anti-static surface for easy stain, soil, and fur removal. They are also stain and fade resistant. With the latest technology, these carpets stay together better and can be vacuumed with ease.

I have been looking for a new rug to make my cat more comfortable in the apartment. We moved from carpeted floors throughout most the house to faux hardwood flooring throughout the entire apartment. After the first few head-plants into the wall, my cat got used to hardwood but never really liked it. He much prefers the comfort of a carpet to sleep and lay down on when resting.

Personally, as my apartment rests above a carport so floor insulation is rather pathetic, I also like the feel of a carpet under my toes. The floor becomes very cold during the winter so socks – or carpet – are necessary just for comfort. I have been watching carpets for a while but never found a decent sized carpet for a good price. This deal is just what I have been looking for.

Both carpets are online only and limited stock is available. The brown carpet is already under 20 carpets available.

Best Buy Canada: Murphy Mesh Task Chair Was $140 | Now $50 & NO TAX & Free Shipping *HOT*

Posted by on February 20, 2015 at 1:51 PM

Best Buy Canada: Murphy Mesh Task Chair Was $140 | Now $50 & NO TAX & Free Shipping *HOT*

The deal of the day today at Best Buy Canada is hot. The Murphy Mesh Mid-Back Task Chair is on sale from $139.99 down to $49.99. As the chair is over the $25 minimum for free shipping, the chair will ship for free to your home. In addition, Best Buy Canada has a no tax on any furniture promotion on right now – so save an extra 5% to 12% on your order.

I found the same chair at Future Shop Canada currently priced at $139.99. Besides that, I could not really find this chair anywhere else. However, similar chairs retail for over $100 at most places. I have rarely seen a mesh back office chair for any less.

Features:

  • mesh back for breathability
  • cushioned bottom for comfort
  • height adjustable
  • comes in black to match everything

Now, the chair has fair-to-middling reviews on both Future Shop and Best Buy. I went through a bunch of them to understand why the chair is averaging 2.9/5 stars. The primarily complaint is that the seat is not comfortable enough for a long duration of sitting. However, even this is not completely agreed upon by reviewers. The most common rating is 3/5 stars. Many of the reviews are like this:

It’s a chair. I assembled it, I sat on it, and it works. The wheels are fine, and it works on carpet reasonably well. Nothing spectacular about it. Only bought it when it was on sale – would not buy it at full price.

This chair was 50% off during Boxing Day (as many comments mention), but you can now score this task chair for an even better deal.

Now, here are a few things the chair is not. You cannot adjust the depth of the back and the chair does not tilt. If you are looking for those features, your chair is going to cost you a bit more. This appears just to be a nice basic desk chair.

I should pick one of these chairs up as I sit on a dining-room table chair all the time to do my work. Now, that might sound fine but after a few hours, my bottom gets sore and my back has pretty much zero support. One of these chairs would probably help my back feel better!

Ikea Hacks – 6 Ways To Repurpose A Lack Table

Ikea Hacks   6 Ways To Repurpose A Lack Table

Ikea is well known for having affordable furniture and storage solutions. I love walking through their showrooms and seeing how the designers having taken a cramped apartment and folded it away like an origami swan. While Ikea has many great home solutions on the cheap, sometimes you want your furniture pieces to look and function a little differently. If you are even a little handy, you can use IKEA furniture to create some fabulous pieces for your home.

I am so excited to show you some of the amazing uses of the infamous Lack Side Table. The Lack Side table retails for around $13 and sometimes goes on sale for even less. This basic side table comes in a whole host of colours from brown black, to white, birch, green, red and more. The super low price makes it a perfect piece of furniture to experiment with for a larger DIY project. With a little time, you can transform that $13 table into a whole host of amazing things for your home. Check out a few of the ideas below.

Ikea Hacks   6 Ways To Repurpose A Lack Table

Check out the fantastic upholstered ottoman created at Infarrantly Creative. Most small ottomans start at around $70 and only go up in price from there. Give your living room a pop of colour for much less with this fun project. Ikea has a whole host of fabric you can choose from at inexpensive prices right in the store. This project only calls for a yard and a half of fabric among a few other supplies such as foam for the cushion. I recommend finding a fun pattern while you are already at Ikea or shopping the remnants section at the fabric store to find a small piece of fabric on the cheap.

Lego Table

Ikea Hacks   6 Ways To Repurpose A Lack Table

Over at Kojo Designs they have Lego storage figured out. A Lego table will easily run you $100+ on sale. Pick up a Lack table instead and you will have a place for those bricks. Adhere several Lego plates to the table using epoxy, gorilla glue or some other type of strong glue that works with plastic. Once dry the basic part of the table is now finished. I love how Kojo Designs attached a magnetic strip to the side. Then they attached various larger storage containers to the end of the table. Maybe that will mean one less Lego my foot finds as I try to walk across the living room floor.

Ikea Hacks   6 Ways To Repurpose A Lack Table

Kitty lovers, I am talking to you! Check out this amazing Cat Tree at Ikea Hackers, one of the ultimate Ikea hack resources. For this project, you need four Ikea Lack tables, some metal brackets, some twine for kitty to scratch and a bath mat or two.

If you have priced out a kitty condo anytime in the last few years, you know they easily start at $80 for a tiny version. Larger cat trees range to around $200. In addition, they are a huge carpeted eyesore in your living room. This amazing Lack hack will blend in to your living space easier, making life for both you and your kitty a bit brighter.

Mod Planter Table

This crazy easy Instructable teaches you how to install a planter into the centre of your Lack table. Plant a herb garden or your favourite flowers right in the center for a mod looking piece. The creator of this hack quickly discovered the centre of the table can be filled with all sorts of decorative fun. A few ideas they used to fill this table include shells, a small bubbling water fountain, pebbles with candles and more. I love all the different ways this hacker changed one inexpensive table to create multiple different looks throughout the year.

Espresso Mainstays End Table Only $9.88 @ Walmart.ca

Espresso Mainstays End Table Only $9.88 @ Walmart.ca

Walmart Canada has discounted the Mainstays Table in Espresso from $17.47 down to just $9.88 with free shipping. This table makes an excellent low-budget end table for your guest room, living room, or child’s bedroom.

You will note that there are two tables available. The espresso has been discounted to $9.88 and the white is on sale for $13.88. The espresso colour should match most decors. The Mainstays end table is constructed of MDF and melamine for a sleek finish. The table measures 20″ square and is 17.75″ high.

According to Walmart, this table is easy to assemble but the two reviews on the table are polar opposites. One person gave it a one star review because they had such trouble assembling the piece. The other reviewer gave the table a five star review saying it was easy to assemble, well priced, and they might just purchase another one.

Now, I also found another Mainstays side table in red on sale for just $10. All the other colours are sold out so you can tell this is a popular product. One reviewer (who purchased the red) said:

I bought this as an accent table and it is larger than I thought it would be. Will be buying another for $10!

I used their picture with the teapot in the banner above as it is very pretty and really shows how great this simple little end table looks.

Now, I could not exactly price compare this table anywhere as I could only find it at Walmart in Canada. However, I looked at the comparable style of table at Ikea. The Lack Side Table at Ikea costs $12.99 for their espresso equivalent, $15.99 for white, and $15.99 for red.

Now, where Walmart really pulls ahead on this deal is with their free shipping policy. You will get these end tables shipped to you for free. There is no need to pop into a local store or to pay for shipping charges. Not all of us live near an Ikea (there is not even an Ikea on Vancouver Island) and shipping charges for furniture can be high.

I did note that the red end table may be cheaper by a $1 in store (depending on where you live), but all my local stores are currently sold out so I am out of luck.

New Years Savings of up to 20% Off Your Purchase @ Ikea Canada Online Today (EXPIRED)

Posted by on January 1, 2015 at 1:57 PM

New Years Savings of up to 20% Off Your Purchase @ Ikea Canada Online Today (EXPIRED)

Cheers to an amazing deal from IKEA Canada. For New Years day, you can shop at IKEA online and save up to 20% off your purchase. With this promotion, the more you spend at IKEA online, the more you save. This is your opportunity to get some additional savings at IKEA, or purchase a regular priced item you have had your eyes on for a while.

This IKEA Canada offer is valid today for New Years. This deal is also only available online, which works out well. Shopping from my computer in the comfort of my home sounds a lot better than driving around on New Years day.

  • Save 10% off your purchase of $200 or more
  • Save 15% off your purchase of $300 or more
  • Save 20% off your purchase of $400 or more

There is no hassle of entering a coupon code either, just add your items to your cart to get the savings. I tested this offer, and it can be combined with sales offers too! I added the SOLSTA Sofa Bed to my cart. It is on sale for $199.00. To get the 10% discount, I added the LACK Side Table to my cart which is on sale for $9.99. After receiving the New Years savings, the SOLSTA Sofa Bed ended up being just $179.10 and the LACK Table will cost just $8.99.

This would also be a great chance to pick up items that rarely go on sale. The MAMMUT Children’s furniture is super cute. I was thinking of getting a small table and a couple chairs for my son’s room. These would make great tables for colouring, crafts and other activities that you don’t want on the carpet. The MAMMUT Children’s Stools are only $7.99 each, but if you are looking for a little more stability for your little one, I would get the MAMMUT Children’s Chairs for $14.99 each. You could also go for a sales item in this department too. The UTTER Children’s Table with 2 Stools is just $16.99 right now. For durability and quality, I would pick the MAMMUT furniture over the UTTER furniture, but of course it depends on what your needs are.

The biggest downfall to this offer is the shipping rates. Home Delivery will cost you $99.00. Of course most of the IKEA items are of larger size, so it really beats trying to find a car of a big enough size to pick it up yourself. I think to get the best benefit of this sale, it would make sense to spend as much as you can to make the $99 shipping worth it. If you spend $400 and save 20% off, you will be saving $80. My suggestion would be to spend $400 on sale items to get the best discounts combined with your 20% off.
