White Swan Savings Club Canada: Sign Up & Get $5 Off A Gift Card

Sign up for the White Swan savings club and get a $25 gift card for only $20. Right now, the gift cards are for The Keg or Golf Town.

If you frequent The Keg or Golf Town, or know someone who does who deserves a gift, why not get it for $5 cheaper? What’s cool is that by signing up for the club you’ll get savings on your White Swan products, plus rewards for buying those products. I’m all about being rewarded for shopping, especially when it is something you have to buy anyway.

There are other featured products you can buy at a discount, including watches, cameras and tools. You’ll need a UPC from a White Swan product, which gives you 30 days of free access to the club. White Swan sells bathroom tissue, facial tissue, paper towels and napkins. The products and gift cards frequently change, so keep checking back once you join.

5 Fun and Frugal Father’s Day Ideas

Posted by on June 4, 2013 at 8:00 PM

5 Fun and Frugal Fathers Day Ideas

Father’s Day this year is on June 16th.  Typically, Father’s Day is celebrated on the 3rd Sunday of June.  Here’ a fun fact courtesy of Wikipedia:  Father’s Day was first celebrated in 1910 in Spokane, Washington and was created after Mother’s Day was created (figures!).  What better way to celebrate the wonderful Dad in your life with acknowledgement to show them just how special they are?

The key to a man’s heart doesn’t have to involve spending loads of money on your favourite Father.  Here are some fun and frugal Father’s Day gift and activity ideas to show the Father in your life just how special he really is.

#1. Go Fish

Grab a pole (the local thrift store or even Canadian Tire sells fishing poles for pretty cheap), make sure there’s a license (for example, in British Columbia, a one-day fresh water fishing license costs only $10 for residents of British Columbia), and go fish!

Yahoo also suggests packing a picnic lunch to complete the frugal Father’s Day idea.  Young children (usually under age 16) can usually fish under the adult’s license.

Fishing will teach everyone patience, provide lots of rest and relaxation, and provide ample opportunity for family bonding.  Alternately, there are many coupons available through Groupon or other daily deal sites that provide two for one fishing expeditions if you want to crank it up a notch.

(Cost: Under $50 for the day)

 #2. Clean Up His Car

This idea for a frugal Father’s Day is courtesy of About.com’s Frugal Living section, and it’s brilliant.  Men love their cars and they love their cars even more when they are clean, shiny, and spotless.  All you have to do is grab a few supplies from around the house (or use his car washing and polishing supplies which he is likely to have sitting in the garage) and start cleaning!  Oh and grab the vacuum to clean up the interior of his car.  This gift is guaranteed to bring a smile to his face.

(Cost: Free – unless you count manual labour)

 #3. Fire Up the Barbecue

Men love their grills and their steaks (unless they are vegetarian of course). Yahoo Voices suggests firing up the grill for the Father in your life for a frugal Father’s Day.  Make sure you get some high quality cuts such as rib eye, T-bone, and New York cut steaks.  Costco has great high quality cut meats.

Cleaning the grill, buying the groceries and prepping the food with some good marinades or rubs will surely melt his heart.  Also get him some of his favourite beer, chilled, for extra brownie points.

(Cost: Under $50 for the food)

#4. Action Movie Marathon

Speed, Matrix, Die Hard, Batman, and even the Fast and the Furious (yes, maybe even Fast and Furious I to V which will take you probably an entire weekend to complete).  Guys love their action movies (yes, this is a generalization) and Yahoo Voices suggests dedicating an entire afternoon to an action movie marathon.  This is actually an enjoyable event for many men (watching the Lord of the Rings trilogy in an entire day was actually my guy’s idea of showing that I love him).

Just make sure to have some pizza or other snacks available to munch on during the action movie marathon.

(Cost: Free – unless you don’t own any of these movies at home)

#5. Personalized Golf Balls

Sure you can spend $50 at Golf Town for a set of personalized golf balls which is a great sentiment, but you can also try and make your own personalized golf balls.  If you want to make it even more personalized, eHow has some tips on websites you can go to for logos and adding a custom design to golf balls.  If meticulousness is not on your radar (since most golf balls get lost anyway, really), then grab a stamp pad, a stamp (you can easily have custom made stamps at your local stamp or craft store) and stamp away.

Any Dad is sure to think of his family every time he puts that golf ball down on the tee.  What better way to remind him that he is loved than this?

(Cost: $10 to $50)

As you can see, celebrating the wonderful Dad in your life doesn’t have to involve spending a ton of money.  The point of Father’s Day is to show appreciation and spend quality time together, and not necessarily spend a load of money on gadgets or gizmos that he won’t use.

Bargainmoosers, what is your favourite frugal Father’s Day gift or activity?
