Exclusive: 40% Off Wall Tattoos & More @ Surface Collective

Get 40% off wall stickers and more at Surface Collective, thanks to our exclusive Bargainmoose coupon!

Click here to shop @ Surfacecollective.com now

  • Coupon Code: bargainmoose40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 3rd June 2014

This is a really hot coupon! Valid for four short days, you’ll get a whopping 40% off at Surface Collective. We haven’t seen many coupons for Surface Collective, besides these hot exclusives we get for you and the typical Boxing Week, Cyber Monday sales. This means that this is your only chance until Black Friday to get this much of a discount on all your wall treatments and laptop tattoos.

I absolutely love the designs that Surface Collective has to offer and would consider a number of them for my home once we buy a new house. I think they make gorgeous decor for any room in the house and would love one for my office. I think this Soulful one is beautiful and perfect for the type of look I’d like to portray. Normally you’d pay $85 for this large decal, but with our coupon, your total comes down to $51.

The kid’s wall tattoos are stunning and better than your average Dora or Diego stickers! I’d love to get my boys something that will grow with them and still be cool when they are teenagers and this Lost at Sea is totally awesome. Regularly $90, you’ll get it for $54! Stargazing is also perfect and will cost you $51 instead of $85.

Our awesome Bargainmooser Anna has used Surface Collective stickers before and here’s what she had to say about them:

I’ve used wall stickers from quite a few companies, and I’ve come to the conclusion that you pay for what you get. I’ve bought cheap ones off eBay and found them really difficult to apply, low quality, poor edges, things like that. I have personally used the wall stickers from Surface Collective and in my opinion, they’re really high quality. They have some super design choices too.

While Surface Collective does have a free shipping over $100 offer, it doesn’t apply when you use coupon codes. The shipping is a flat rate of $12, but if you notice I’m saving $34 on one wall tattoo, so you are much wiser to use the coupon and swallow the shipping, which can be standard at a lot of companies without a 40% discount.

Home Depot Canada: 70% Off Rugs

Home Depot has a number of carpets and rugs on sale with as much as 70% off! They will also ship to you for free.

I recently bought a few carpets for my home, as I have hardwood floors and I felt like it needed it to finish it off. What a difference it made! It just adds so much more to the room and I didn’t spend a lot. If I had waited for this deal at Home Depot, I could have really saved.

There are a number of styles and types of rugs on sale.

This 100% wool Yerville Rust area rug was hand tufted in India. I think it is gorgeous with so many different colours to bring out your wall colour or other decor touches. This one is such a great deal as it was $520, now $160.

If you look for an extra-large area rug, this Yenne beige New Zealand wool area rug is 9×13 feet. It was also hand tufted in India, but made from 100% New Zealand wool. This rug definitely makes a statement with gorgeous beige, tan and brown colours flowing in different directions. You’ll save almost $1400 and pay only $837, from a regular price of $2230.

For something extra small, check out this Warhem blue polypropylene accent rug that is 2’2″x3′. This one was machine made in Turkey, and also quite the steal at $18, was $51.98.

Sears Canada: 48 Hour Sale On Home Decor (Up To 70% Off)

Nothing beats securing deals on holiday items before Christmas and luckily, here’s your chance: save up to 70% on home decorations during Sears’ 48h sale!

Just the other day, I went shopping for holiday home decorations but I have to admit that the high prices made me quickly return home, and I told myself that I’ll come back after Christmas. And while saving money on next year’s decorations is an appealing thought in of itself, it still doesn’t change the fact that I need new decorations now, a problem that I’m sure many of you have encountered already, and this is exactly why I have already ordered a couple of items from Sears’ sale.

In my excitement at seeing such low prices on holiday decorations, I even compiled a short list of some of the biggest discounts you can get:

As usual, free shipping is only available on purchases over $99 and keep in mind that today is also the last day to shop for the order to arrive to most locations before Christmas. Be sure to let us know in the comments section which deals on home decor items you will be snagging!

Outdoor Christmas Decorations On A Budget

Posted by on November 24, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Outdoor Christmas Decorations On A Budget

When decorating your house for Christmas, there is no reason to break the bank.  I like to add new decorations every year to my display, but I enjoy making them myself.  There are so many decorating ideas you can do at home that will use items you already have, either inside or outside the house. Here are a few personal favourites of mine.

Tomato cage Christmas trees: This is one of my favourites because I have a ton of these cages.  It can be done a few different ways.  Basically, all you have to do is flip the cage upside down and decorate it to look like a tree.  You can use garland, lights, twigs, branches or a variety of all.

Coloured Ice Balls: Another very easy decoration and favourite of mine are these cool-coloured ice balls.  They are so simple to make.  Just fill any balloon with water and your choice of food colouring, and let them sit outside to freeze.  Once it is frozen, you can cut the balloon off and you have a beautiful ice ball.  I have seen them lining the driveway or front porch, or even to add some interest in front of trees. You can make them any colour you would like and as festive as you would like by adding glitter and all sorts of things.  I love that they look like huge beautiful marbles.

The Upside Down Snowman: We get a ton of snow in Calgary and since it is free, why not use it to decorate outside?  Instead of making the same old boring snowman, why not make a fun upside down snowman for the front lawn? It is festive and is is fun. I say, the bigger the better. Personalize it with a carrot, clothing or anything you can find around the house.  You will be the talk of the neighbourhood!

Nature’s Decorations: Another great idea is using the natural elements around your yard to create beautiful holiday accents.  Use pine cones, berries, branches, pine leaves and whatever else you can find.  You can create wreaths, ornaments for the outside trees, and window box or garage decorations absolutely free.

These are just a few ways to save on your holiday decorating.  What frugal decorating tips do you follow when dressing up the outside of your house for the holidays?

Saving Money On Furniture

Posted by on October 26, 2013 at 8:00 PM

Saving Money On Furniture

Let’s face it: anything outside of Ikea furniture is expensive. When you’re furnishing your first place, Ikea furniture obviously makes sense. It’s cheap, it looks good, and everyone likes it, therefore they won’t judge you for being cheap with your furniture.

However, as you get older, buy a home, and are supposed to get more “grown up” furniture (or not, Ikea furniture is still good), you want to be able to have tasteful things in your home, but not for the high price. No, you don’t necessarily need to buy that $4000 La-Z-Boy couch, and you can get a nice non-Ikea couch for half that price.

There are a few considerations you need to make before you “invest” your money on furniture (not to mention the time spent hunting for it). Are you planning to move any time soon? If there is any possibility that you may be moving across the country or to another city, you might want to reconsider spending so much on that piece of furniture. Either you will have to sell it, which may be difficult depending on how organized you are, or you will have to move it to your city or province of destination which can be very costly, despite the ability to write the moving costs off for tax purposes.

Here are a few tips on how to save money on furniture:

Buy Used When You Can

I am a huge proponent of buying used furniture because it saves that piece of furniture from being thrown in the landfill, you usually get to buy the furniture already assembled (which is a major plus for certain Ikea pieces), and you get to acquire the furniture at a discount of 30% to 50% off the regular retail price for the most part.

Places to look for used furniture are Craigslist.ca and Kijiji (as we’ve talked about in length before)Freecycle is another option for used furniture. When shopping and answering or replying to ads, make sure that you call if there is the option (versus leaving an email message) because this helps keep the seller accountable. Unfortunately, with free ads like this, sometimes the sellers (and sometimes the buyers) can be flakey, so be aware.

Opt for Multipurpose Furniture

If you’re short on space as well as money, invest in furniture that can serve dual purposes. Some examples of multipurpose furniture are sofa beds, coffee tables that can convert to dining room tables (only if you are very short on space), or seating that has storage space underneath it. Captain beds (beds that have storage drawers underneath) are great as well.

Ask for a Discount or Wait for a Sale (on Big Ticket Items)

Probably one of the easiest ways to save money on furniture is by asking to see if there is a discount available. Oftentimes the sales personnel are hungry for a sale and will gladly give you a bit of a discount, especially if you purchase a few items. Note, this strategy only usually works at smaller furniture shops and does not work at Ikea!

If you can, wait for a sale to come around for a piece of furniture that you really have your eye on. Wait for a sale (or ask the sales staff when the next sale might be). For my La-Z-Boy L-shaped couch with chaise, I saved $1000 off the price because of a friends and family sale. Although the sales staff stayed late in order to ring in the purchase, they were happy because they were able to make a sale and meet their sales target/quota for the day.

Shop on Amazon.com (and now Amazon.ca)

Amazon.ca isn’t what is used to be and isn’t simply limited to books and CDs. They have recently added furniture as well, and there is a plethora of furniture options available. Most items include free super-saver shipping for orders over $25. With Amazon.com, shipping it to the shipping depot across the border can be a great way to save on furniture costs. Even if you have to pay duty and taxes, you can still save a decent amount. There are lots of items that can be purchased for cheap that can be easily packed up and put into your car. This includes bar stools, bedside tables, and even foam queen sized mattresses. Some items have great reviews and instead of paying $2000 for a foam mattress at a mattress shop, you can get one for $500 neatly packaged into a box that you can easily pick up at the border.

Furniture is expensive, no doubt. Therefore, saving money on the smaller pieces of furniture (for example bedside tables or bar stools) that don’t matter as much to your home decor can help you save money for the bigger ticket items that matter more.

Bargainmoosers, do you have a piece of furniture that you proudly saved money on?

Home Depot Canada: Hampton Bay Lamp – Now $79 (Save $30)

Posted by on October 17, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Home Depot Canada: Hampton Bay Lamp   Now $79 (Save $30)

I am not sure if I just have an obsession with table lamps, or maybe it is a ‘thing’ that people who grew up with ugly fringed lamps have, but I am always on the lookout for lamps. Home Depot Canada is offering this Hampton Bay Santa Fe 1L Table Lamp on sale from $109.10 down to $79.

The added bonus with this lamp is that not only do you save $30, but you also get free shipping on it as well. Lamps are pretty awkward things to ship, because the base is elongated and heavy while the shade is fat and prone to breaking. With this deal, they take care of this shipping and you don’t pay a cent.

About the lamp:

Intricate details and craftsmanship make this table lamp a work of art. Marble glass shades shed a warm glow to compliment the desert rose finish. Requires 1 medium base bulb. 150 Watt maximum (sold separately).

I think that description sounds pretty nice, but that lamp shade, from the picture above, is not marble glass. Just saying. It still sounds like a pretty nice lamp and is a great price.

Linen Chest Canada: B1G1 50% Off On Everything

Linen Chest has a pretty sweet deal going on right now. When you buy any two items, you’ll get the second one for half price, even on reduced items!

I found these ultimate comfort slippers and was amazed at the sale price! These would make a great gift for anyone and look so cozy and warm for those upcoming frigid months. Was $29.95, now $3.73, but get them for half price with any other item for only $1.87!

With fall comes rejuvenation, and that includes your bedding and pillows. I bet after a long summer of sweating, your pillows could use a refresh. Check out these dream quilt pillows, were $22.95, now $12.95. Buy two and pay only $19.42 for both.

With Thanksgiving coming, do you have enough flatware to feed everyone? To avoid your guests eating turkey with their hands, check out this Jessica 20-piece cutlery collection, only $64.47, was $134.95. You also don’t want them lapping at the kitchen sink tap, so check out these Soho glasses (set of four) for $24.95, but get them for $12.50 with your cutlery purchase.

Surface Collective Canada Promo Code EXCLUSIVE: 40% Off Your Order

Surface Collective Canada Promo Code EXCLUSIVE: 40% Off Your Order

Get 40% off your order at Surface Collective this week with this Bargainmoose exclusive promo code.

Click here to shop @ Surfacecollective.com now

  • Coupon Code: moosetattoo40
  • Discount: 40% off
  • Expiry: 24th June 2013

Wall decals or wall tattoos have really grown as a go-to item for defining your spaces. They add character and whimsy to boring areas, are easy to do and not very expensive. I used wall decals for the first time about three years ago to decorate my youngest son’s nursery. I added a cherry blossom tree with the leaves and flowers blowing in the wind, plus a large R for his name. I absolutely loved the effect of both decals, and people who see his room now still comment on how gorgeous it is. It hasn’t peeled in the slightest, and I chose something that would grow with him for a while.

The collection of wall tattoos at Surface Collective is enormous and very unique. I was actually very impressed with the selection and am considering quite of few of these before the sale ends.

I am in love with this “Write Drunk, Edit Sober” Ernest Hemingway quote, which I honestly think I will get for my office. Was $25, now $15.

This Still Water Tattoo would look amazing in a room lacking windows. Was $59, now $35.40.

The Ever Expanding Black Mass adds something unforgettable to any room. I love this! Was $100, now $60.

The free shipping threshold doesn’t apply with promotional codes, so you’ll have to pay the flat $14 rate, but for most of the tattoos, you’ll get that back in the large discount.

Don’t forget that the Bargainmoose forum has coupons for Surface Collective.

Chapters Canada: All Frames B2G1 Free

Chapters Canada has some great deals happening right now and this one will get you a free item with your purchase.  When you buy two frames, you will get a third frame for free.

I actually own this Mom+Dad=Me picture frame that is $26.99 and bought it somewhere else last year for more than it is at Chapters. It is the perfect gift for someone expecting a baby or someone who already has a little one.   I also like this floating frame that is $24.50 and this 8×10 Gallery frame that is $25.  With this deal you will be getting the lowest priced frame for free, so you will get the floating frame for free saving you a grand total of $24.50.  That is an amazing deal.

Chapters Canada offers free shipping for orders of $25 or more.  Since you will need to buy two frames to get the third frame for free, you will have enough in your cart to get the free shipping as well.
