WagJag Canada: $30 for 6 Hampton Bay Solar LED Lights (a $79 Value)

Posted by on July 21, 2014 at 11:00 PM

WagJag Canada: $30 for 6 Hampton Bay Solar LED Lights (a $79 Value)

A back and front yard must at our house are solar lights.  I love the look of them lit up at light and they are basically no maintenance after you buy them because the charge all day in the sun.  They can get quite pricey though so you need to look for a good deal.  I found a spectacular deal at WagJag Canada  for a pack of solar LED lights.  Get a pack of six for just $30 when the regular cost is $79.

If you are unfamiliar with the brand name Hampton Bay, they are one of the best brands for indoor or outdoor lighting.  Because they are so good, they can be a bit expensive.  This brand  can be found in Home Depot (which is where we actually got our Hampton Bay LED solar lights) and a few other stores.

With this deal, you will get the six pack of LED solar lights in black and they have the stakes included to attach to the ground.  Each LED stake light measures 5.13 x 19 in and they light up at dusk so can last for up to 8 hours.  They are a great addition to any garden or walkway.

The cost of shipping is $12 extra but that is a fraction of the cost you will be saving at 62% off the regular price. The delivery will take approximately 4-6 weeks.

I wanted to show you a little price comparison for this deal.  I found the Hampton Bay solar lights at Home Depot Canada in a 10 pack that are almost identical.  They are priced at $79.98. Even though you get a few more, you would still be getting a far better deal with the Wagjag pack of six.  You would also get charged shipping at Home Depot.

I also found a similar set at Canadian Tire that are a no name brand and come in a pack of four.  They are $59.99 and again, you would be paying extra for shipping.  Those ones are double the cost of the Wagjag ones and they are not even a great brand or have as many in the box!

I finally found similar ones again at Walmart Canada that only had four in a pack and they were priced at $69.98. Even though Walmart offers free shipping on theirs, the WagJag deal still surpasses this one as well.

Buytopia Canada: $13.50 for 100 Glow-In-The-Dark Pebbles for Walkways (was $30)

Buytopia Canada: $13.50 for 100 Glow In The Dark Pebbles for Walkways (was $30)

I love checking out the deals over at Buytopia Canada because they are discounted up to 80% off the regular prices that you will find in stores.  Today, I found a deal on a product I have been looking for, for a while now.  You can get these glow in the dark pebbles for your garden or walkways at 50% off the regular price right now.

The regular price of these stones is $30 but Buytopia is offering them for 50% off, now just $15. As a bonus, you can use the exclusive Buytopia coupon MOOSEJULY10 to save an additional 10% on this deal saving you another $1.50.  The end cost after this coupon code will be just $13.50, which is a pretty incredible deal. This coupon code is only valid for two more days so take advantage of it while you still can save that extra money.

This deal will include 100 of the glow in the dark pebbles that you can use on land or in the water.  They absorb light during the day to glow in the dark during evening hours. They are made with non-toxic, non-radioactive materials and they come in a variety of colours. They will glow for up to 12 hours every day so you will have a beautiful display each evening to look at.

Personally, I have been wanting these for my backyard garden to give it a little personality at night.  I also wanted some to line my walkway.  Now, after reading that they work in water as well, I want to get them for my parents pond.  How cool would that be to look in your backyard water feature at night and see these glowing!

At just $13.50, you can afford to get a few of these for yourself or for gifts for any homeowner or avid gardener. If you are looking for some fun ideas and unique ways to use these, make sure to check out Pinterest.  This is where I first saw them and now have an array of ideas in my head as to how I want to use mine!

After the deal closes, it will take approximately 4-6 weeks for delivery.

The taxes are included with this deal so that will not be an additional charge. The cost of shipping is not included with this deal but it is not much at all.  Pay just $3.99 for the cost of shipping.

Breck’s Bulbs Canada Coupon Code: $35 Off $75

Posted by on June 19, 2014 at 7:00 PM

Brecks Bulbs Canada Coupon Code: $35 Off $75

Breck’s Bulbs is back with an amazing deal: get $35 off any order of $75 or more on flowers and gardening supplies for a beautiful garden.

Click here to shop @ Breck’s Canada now

  • Coupon Code: 1202103
  • Discount: $35 off $75
  • Expiry: 30th June 2014

There are really two ways to get this offer. The official way is to sign up to their newsletter via their website and then click through the newsletter (they send it immediately) and your offer code is immediately applied. I highly suggest signing up for their newsletter if you are an avid gardener because they have such great items for your garden and such fantastic deals too. Alternatively, you can just use the coupon code above and enter it into the “key number” slot in your cart. Make sure to hit apply. If by chance that is not working for you when you go to checkout, then use newsletter method (it is easy peasy).

This coupon is a pretty big deal on its own, but when you combine it with the flower deal of the week… it becomes astronomically good. These Beau Regard Allium were $26.99 each, and are now only $5.99 apiece. I loaded up my cart with 13 of these beautiful flowers (which will ship in the fall if you are looking to buy). Thirteen flowers added up to $77.87 and then the discount was applied so my total cart came down to just $42.87. You are getting 13 plants for the original price of approximately two. It is one incredible deal.

All the bulbs you receive are shipped in from Holland. The spring shipping season just finished and summer is far too hot to ship delicate bulbs and have them arrive healthy. Thus, the next shipping season does not start till September so your order now is essentially a pre-order for bulbs that will be shipped then. I think it is cool, buying bulbs that are shipped in all the way from Holland. To check out the shipping zones and dates, click here. You can also buy gardening supplies and decorations at any time.

So many bulbs are currently on sale on their website and they do have a huge selection of flowers to choose from. If you have a green thumb, this is certainly a website you want to add to your favourites. I want to thank Mooser Penny S for letting us know this deal was available!

Shipping depends on where you are shipping to and how much you are shipping. For my cart full of 13 Beau Regard Allium, shipping was about $13.95 to Vancouver Island – so shipping is reasonable.

3 Vegetable Patio Garden Ideas To Save You Grocery Money

Posted by on May 15, 2014 at 8:00 PM

3 Vegetable Patio Garden Ideas To Save You Grocery Money

I love the idea of growing your own vegetables for a few reasons.  Pride of growing your own vegetables and being self-sustainable (well, as much as we can be, living in the city), knowing what you’re eating and knowing that there are no pesticides in what you are eating, and access to yummy vegetables and herbs right away (just need to go out and pick it) instead of having to head to the store.  However, most people, especially as we become more urbanized, don’t have the luxury of having land to grow vegetables in.  Therefore, creativity on how to make your patio vegetable garden work helps keep those vegetables growing!

Here are some great inspirational ideas that will help you make that vegetable patio garden a reality.  In addition, there are some vegetables and herbs that will surprise you as to how easy they are to grow, and hopefully you will have to buy these less often at the grocery store.

#1. Regrow Your Romaine Lettuce Hearts

3 Vegetable Patio Garden Ideas To Save You Grocery Money

I had no idea this was possible and this ridiculously easy.  This idea comes from the Alternative Gardening blog.  All you need to do is to cut the romaine lettuce heart, put them in water, and watch them regrow in days.  If you want it to be cuter, put them in a nicer tray.  Baby romaine lettuce, all the way!  Just like the green onions that you will never have to buy again (which I have yet to start doing, by the way), this is an easy way to have fresh lettuce in your home all the time!

#2. Grow Garlic Indoors

I had no idea that garlic was so easy to grow.  It makes sense not to keep buying the packages of garlic made in China (who knows what they spray on there) if you can help it. Wikihow has great step by step instructions on how to grow garlic indoors in a pot, complete with 3D graphics.  I personally would not be growing a crop of garlic like that, just a few garlic buds will do, but to each their own.

Okay, now onto some super cute patio garden ideas:

#3. Vertical Vegetable Gardens

I am absolutely in love with the idea of a vertical vegetable patio garden for of a few reasons:  a) more vegetables and more use of space b) more sunlight utilized.  Many patios at the bottom don’t get a lot of sun, so having a vertical garden is a fabulous idea.

Juneau Empire has a really cute garden, because it utilizes the idea of gutters to create it.  The only caveat is that this only works well with vegetables that have short roots, like lettuce.  Lettuce, swiss chard, radish all work well with this garden idea.  I like how sleek it looks.

LLH design blog courtesy of Apartment Therapy has a cute idea to use old wine crates as patio garden containers.  Very chic looking might I add.  The platform to hold the crates might be a little more work than I’m able to commit to, but nice idea nonetheless.

3 Vegetable Patio Garden Ideas To Save You Grocery Money

You can also grow vertical gardens indoors too, if you’re really into the green thumb (and crafty) aspect of this.  These ones from Apartment Therapy are so gorgeous and inspirational looking, not to mention interior design drool-worthy. It would definitely be a centre piece of attention when you have friends over, and they will be amazed at how delicious your food is too! Apartment Therapy gives a few tips on how to create your own vertical garden indoors.

As you can see, growing vegetables and herbs indoors or on your patio is totally doable.  All you need are some ideas!  If you need a bit more inspiration in order to stimulate your green thumb into action, Organic Gardens Network has a great post on 66 edible things you can grow in containers. One “take home message” is that any herb can be grown indoors, but you might want to do some research as to which herbs co-habitate nicely with each other in soil and which don’t.

Bargainmoosers, what has been your personal favourite edible thing to grow in a container?

Shop.ca: Outsunny Greenhouse Only $79

Posted by on May 2, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Shop.ca: Outsunny Greenhouse Only $79

If you are looking for a small backyard greenhouse, Shop.ca has a great deal on the Outsunny 4.6′ x 2.5′ greenhouse. It is now only $89 with a regular price of $240. Because websites often tend to inflate the regular price, I thought I’d price compare this item at other online retailers for you. Amazon has it for $98.99, but they show a regular price of $99. So while it isn’t as amazing of a deal as they make it out to be, it is still the best price, including free shipping, around. As another bonus, use the promo code for Shop.ca to get another $10 off and you’ll pay only $79 for this item.

While I said above that this is a small greenhouse, it is actually a medium-sized one. It can fit quite a bit and would probably be enough for a small family to grow. It says you can use this greenhouse year-round, but I’m going to think that in Canada, you’d want it somewhere that is protected from the snow as this would surely buckle under the weight of the amount of snow we get. While it does say it has a strong frame and made of durable materials, it isn’t designed to hold heavy loads of snow or rain.

I am moving to a rental house in a few months, so I don’t want to spend money putting in gardens when we aren’t going to be living there for long. This is a perfect solution for me as I love to grow my own fresh vegetables and herbs.

If you want something smaller or larger, Shop.ca has all sizes of Outsunny greenhouses on sale.

The Home Depot Coupon: Printable $10 Off $50+ Of Grass Seed or Fertilizer

Posted by on March 30, 2014 at 11:30 AM

The Home Depot Coupon: Printable $10 Off $50+ Of Grass Seed or Fertilizer

This printable coupon for Home Depot will save you money on two different things this week.  Save $10 on purchases of $50 or more on grass seed or fertilizer.

Some of their coupons you can use a few times per week but this one is limited to one per customer. Even though the picture suggests it is for the brand Vigoro grass seed and fertilizer, it does not state anywhere that you cannot use it on other brands.

If the darn snow would go away in Calgary, I would be starting to fertilize and put grass seed down immediately.  The best time to do this is in the spring to get the best results, but it will work in the summer and fall as swell. We like to do this every single spring because we have two big dogs that can wreak havoc on our lawn.  If we do this in the spring, we have beautiful grass for the summer.

While you are there, make sure to check out the deals on plants and seeds.  I like to start some of my garden products inside and then transfer them outside once I know the weather will co-operate. I sometimes have half of my garden growing inside on a table by the window giving me fresh herbs and veggies all summer long!

This printable Home Depot coupon and all others will be posted up on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.

Lowes Canada: Pre Season Clearance Sale up to 60% Off

Posted by on March 20, 2014 at 3:30 PM

Lowes Canada: Pre Season Clearance Sale up to 60% Off

Even though it may not look like Spring today in most parts of Canada, we have started a new season.  Lowes Canada is having a pre season clearance sale with tons of outdoor and indoor items on sale up to 60% off the regular prices.

You would think that this sale would have mostly out door items like BBQs and patio furniture and although they do have those items, they have lots of indoor deals as well.  You can save on appliances, vacuum cleaners, kitchen sinks, lighting,\ and even curtain rods along with the outdoor deals.

If you are updating your kitchen, you may want to check out this Kitchenaid dishwasher that was $1098 and is now just $698. If you want to add a great item to your deck on a budget, check out this garden mosaic table that was $118 and is now just $59.

My husband loves to BBQ year round and this Grill Gazebo that was $228 and is now $148 would be perfect for him.  It would allow him to cook in the rain, snow and sunshine and the harsh elements will stay off our BBQ making it last even longer.

This deal is both online and in stores but the selection is much bigger online.  It is a first come first serve basis as some of the items only have a coupon left.

As for the cost of shipping, Lowes Canada has free in store pick up or free parcel shipping.

Shop.ca: Save Up To 55% On Clauss Garden Tools

Get up to 55% off Clauss garden tools to get yourself ready for spring! It is coming!

I bet under all that snow in my yard, there are some plants that will need trimming back and basically a ton of garden cleanup. While I don’t look forward to the work, I will welcome seeing green instead of white. Buying some new tools will undoubtedly get anyone excited for the spring thaw, so if you are feeling emotionally down in this weather, cheer yourself up with a purchase of Clauss garden tools.

I price compared the tools because sometimes I find the regular price gets inflated on sales with over 50% off, but this is truly a good deal. Both Walmart and ebay carried these tools and the prices were a lot higher than these sale prices, so know that I, your faithful Bargainmoose blogger, found you a great deal.

If you need to do some lopping and pruning, this titanium non-stick lopper and pruner 7-piece set is for you. It was $141.92, now $64.99.

They also sell a number of individual tools, like these AirShoc titanium non-stick hedge shears with microban. These sell regularly for $49.99, now $34.99.

Shipping is also always free on anything you order from Shop.ca.

Lowes Canada: Pond Liner Only $70 (Was $140)

Lowes Canada: Pond Liner Only $70 (Was $140)

Thinking of putting a koi or other pond in your garden this year? Plan ahead and get an Angelo Décor International 700-gallon pond liner from Lowes for only $69.50, was $139.99.

I’ve seen a number of people with ponds in their yards and I think they are great. They add a decorative touch you can’t beat – with actual water and living things living inside of it. If you want to bring nature to your yard, a pond is great for small backyards and larger properties. This liner will hold up to 700 gallons, but it is customizable so you can make your pond whatever size you’d like. The liner is approximately 6′ x 11′.

Low maintenance, weather resistant and durable for even Canadian winters, the liner will last you years. Totally important is that this liner is fish safe, so you won’t find your fish belly up because of some harmful plastics in the liner.

It is 50% off, which makes it a substantial savings, especially if your pond has a smaller budget.

Picking this item up in store is your best bet, as it is free pick up, but the shipping is $75.

Home Depot Printable Coupon: B2G1 Free Orchids & Tropical Plants

Posted by on February 1, 2014 at 8:45 AM

Home Depot Printable Coupon: B2G1 Free Orchids & Tropical Plants

There is a new printable coupon out right now for Home Depot that will save you on some great indoor plants.  Print it off and when you buy two tropical plants or orchids, you will get a third one for free.

One of my favourite flowers is the orchid so I am excited about this printable coupon.  I actually might show it to my husband since he loves going to Home Depot on the weekends to browse anyways and hint that he pick some up for Valentines day. I would much prefer a beautiful plant for the house verses some roses that will die within a week as a gift anyways.

This coupon will also work for any tropical plant as well. Obviously living in Canada, all of these plants are for indoors only but I love having lots of plants inside my house.  Plus, the tropical plants are always the most colourful and fun looking ones.

We will have all Home Depot coupons posted up on the Bargainmoose coupon forum.

Amazon Canada: AeroGarden With Gourmet Seed Kit Only $130

Get through the long winter without having to subsist on potatoes and squash. Get yourself an AeroGarden and you’ll get 20% off. This AeroGarden 7 in black with a gourmet seed kit is now only $129.95, was $162.95. It showed up as one of the top 5 bestsellers in the Home and Garden section.

The AeroGarden would make a great gift idea for the gardening suffering plant deprivation symptoms. It sounds a bit pricey, but if you think about the yield you’ll get, it will probably pay for itself in a winter, never mind over the many years you’ll use it.

It is dirt-free, easy and 100% guaranteed. Even a certified “plant murderer” like me could use it. It is even self-watering and will tell you when you need to add more water. So fool-proof literally! This set includes a gourmet seed kit so you can grow some nice Genovese Basil, Dill, Thyme, Mint, Oregano, Globe Basil & Lemon Basil, and you can pick up many other seed kids to grow.

Shipping is free as well as this purchase is over $25.

I love this review:

Awesome growth while you watch.
Takes pruning maintenance weekly, not too much effort.
As a person with a ” black thumb “, with an AeroGarden I have managed to sprout a lush set of herbs within a month.
I can now enjoy the luxury of fresh cut herbs for any meal!

EthicalDeal Canada: Save 51% On Herbal Tea Gardens & Indoor Trees

EthicalDeal Canada: Save 51% On Herbal Tea Gardens & Indoor Trees

Ethical Deal has this interesting little deal going on if you want to keep gardening and growing over the cold winter months. Get 51% off the purchase of an herbal tea garden or indoor tree.

I think these items would make a fantastic gift for someone special, or even as a wedding favour.

There are two options for this deal, although I’m sure you could buy both options if you choose, and you can buy multiples of each deal. They do say they have limited quantities, so check that before you buy, if you are buying a large amount.

For $20, you’ll get a three-pack of indoor tree growing kits in biodegradable pots (a $40.50 value). You’ll get a Dwarf Mountain Goji, a Canadian Sugar Maple and an Indian Tamarind Tree. For $25, you’ll get a three-pack of herbal tea growing kits with terracotta pots and saucers (a $51 value).  In this pack, you’ll get a soothing tea garden with chamomile and lemon balm, a Relaxing tea garden with lavender and vervain, and a Refreshing tea garden with mint and anisse hyssop.

Each kit has all of the instructions and everything else you need to grow your plants (except water, don’t forget to water). The seeds are untreated and organic, so you know everything you are getting is non-toxic, unlike what you might get in the grocery store.

This would also make a fun project for kids or in a classroom, and teachers could split the cost and share the bounty.

Shipping is charged per item ordered, and depends which kit you get and where you live.
