Cineplex Family Favourites Movies for just $3 in December!

Cineplex Canada never fails us with their release of $3 movies available each and every month. My weekend time seems to slip by so quickly, so I really try to cram in as much quality time with my family as I can. Family outtings can be expensive, but that is where Cineplex Canada comes in handy. Cineplex has their Family Favourites movies each Saturday at 11 AM, and these movies will only cost you $2.99 for each admission ticket.

Paying just $2.99 per movie ticket is a much better price than the original cost of tickets from Cineplex Canada. There is usually quite a variety of movie options available. Regularly kids cost $7 and adults cost upwards of $10, depending on your location. This is a great way to get the kids out of the house without spending a fortune. Read the rest of this entry »

6 Ways To Use Up Your Leftover Halloween Candy

6 Ways To Use Up Your Leftover Halloween Candy

Right now, I bet you are staring at a big bowl still full of candy. Or your kids have brought home the motherlode of sugary goodness. I actually have both problems going on. It was so rainy here, but we braved the rain for about an hour and my three kids manage to wrack up a lot of chocolate in those tiny buckets. Plus, my overspending husband bought three boxes of candy, one of which (of course he opened) is sitting in the bowl by my front door.

When I went to boot camp, our trainer told us the best thing to do with all this candy – throw it out. Read the rest of this entry »

6 Ideas For Leftover Halloween Pumpkins!

Halloween just flew by! Now what are we to do with these spooky pumpkins left sitting on our door step? Don’t just throw them away – that is so wasteful. Here at Bargainmoose we love to come up with ideas to upcycle or reuse items, so let’s try these 6 ideas for leftover Halloween pumpkins. Pumpkins are a great way to make butter, heal  your skin, make some air fresheners, and so much more. So think twice before tossing that Jack-O-Lantern in the garbage. Try to keep in mind that if you lit an actual candle inside your pumpkin, it is no longer edible for health reasons. The fake candles are fine though.

Here are the 6 ideas for leftover Halloween pumpkins:

The Best Guide For Pairing Leftover Halloween Candy With Wine!

Admit it. You sneak in some of those Halloween treats while your kids are sleeping. I am guilty of it, and I know we all are. We eat the candies or chips they don’t like, and sometimes we will even barter with them so they will hand over the good stuff. But have you ever thought to combine those delicious treats with a glass of wine?! This Ultimate Guide to Pairing Wine With Halloween Candy has got me on the verge of heading out to pick up Halloween candy on clearance sale now that Halloween is over. Especially now that I know every wine has a perfect candy partner. There happens to be this magical chart to tell you which wine goes best with what candy.

Halloween Candy Apples!

Posted by on October 30, 2015 at 9:00 PM

Halloween Candy Apples!

These treats look awesome! How about some Halloween Candy Apples for the entire family this year? You could probably even change it up and make them for other holidays such as Christmas. For Halloween you can label them as Poisoned Candy Apples for your party or for the kids to enjoy. The candy apples call for Jolly Ranchers, but it is a little more complex than that. If you melt the Jolly Ranchers and then dip the apple in, the candy will become too hard to eat once it dries. So let’s find a better alternative, shall we? After all – we don’t really want to ruin our teeth due to candy. Read the rest of this entry »

DIY Décor: Spooky Halloween Head in a Jar!

DIY Décor: Spooky Halloween Head in a Jar!

Boo! Halloween is getting ever closer – but have you finished decorating your house yet? If you want some added spooky touches, here’s a quick and easy way to make some Halloween décor – a spooky head in a jar! It’s quite a simple and striking craft and all you really need is a large jar and your printer!

There’s a full tutorial on Instructables, complete with a head image that you can download and use if you need to.

In the above tutorial, they use water and food colouring – but I think some watered down OJ or apple juice would be just as effective here. They say it’s also a good idea to have your printout laminated so the water doesn’t soak into it too much. Read the rest of this entry »

They are mainly in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
