(73% Off!) Home Depot Canada: $2436 Off Playstar Great Escape Ready To Assemble Gold Play Set – Now $929 + $199 Shipping

Posted by on May 22, 2015 at 4:00 PM

(73% Off!) Home Depot Canada: $2436 Off Playstar Great Escape Ready To Assemble Gold Play Set   Now $929 + $199 Shipping

Have you been looking for the ultimate play thing for your kids? At Home Depot, the Playstar Great Escape Ready To Assemble Gold Play Set was originally priced as high as $3365 but is now on sale for just $929, which is a nearly 73% discount. Shipping is $199.

Oh man, if I had the budget and the yard space for this play set, I would totally get it right now! You won’t find it at your local Home Depot store as it’s only sold online and though it’s on backorder, you can still purchase it right now and the estimated ship time is 10-16 days.

The Playstar Great Escape play set features all of the following activities:

  • spiral tube slide
  • adventure tunnel
  • climbing wall
  • monkey bars
  • finished lowered deck
  • rock wall
  • climbing robe
  • telescope
  • play handles
  • bronco rider
  • swing
  • gym rings

Plus, it even has a clubhouse and a picnic table! So, even though shipping is $199, I say it’s worth it because it will be delivered straight to your door and you won’t have to worry about lugging all the pieces around. Chances are that if you were to buy it in-stores, you would need to rent truck, so at least it saves that headache!

Even though the initial “regular” price has probably been upped to make it seem like a more shocking deal than it is, there’s no debating that it’s still an awesome offer from Home Depot. I had a look around and found the Playstar Super Star build it yourself silver play set on sale for $899 (reg. $2100). Yes, it’s slightly cheaper and shipping is only $99 but, and here’s the real kicker, you need to supply all of your own lumber, whereas for the gold one, all the pieces come pre-cut and ready to assemble.

What’s funny is that for the build it yourself one, it even says: “build yourself and save”, which could perhaps hold true if we compare the regular prices of the play set but when you think about its current sale price vis-a-vis the built one but it just goes to prove even more just how awesome of a deal the gold one is and this, even with the shipping fee.

It will probably take a couple of days to assemble but at least you won’t have to worry about buying all the lumber and cutting it yourself. The boards on this set are all marked for easy identification and assembly.

Home Depot Canada: Sun Joe Electric Lawn Mower Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping

Posted by on May 15, 2015 at 1:51 PM

Home Depot Canada: Sun Joe Electric Lawn Mower Was $230 | Now $140 & Free Shipping

Home Depot has a long weekend big savings event happening right now and I found a terrific deal for the Moosers who need to cut their lawns. Get the Mow Joe 13 amp 17 inch electric lawn mower for only $140, which is $89 off the original price of $229. You’ll also score free shipping on this item.

Pretty much anyone living in a house has a lawn to cut. Some of us have larger ones than others. Our lawn is fairly subdivision-sized, which means we don’t need a powerhouse of a lawn mower, but we need one that will work on the long grass when my husband hasn’t yet got around to cutting it.

Being electric, this mower is fairly easy to setup, with no messy gas to fool around with. It will cut 17 inches, which seems pretty wide and you can use the 7-position height adjustment to decide how long you want to leave it. You really don’t want to trim it too short in hot weather or you’ll end up with burnt grass (not a good look). It also has a bag that will collect the clippings, or you can turn it into a mulching machine by taking off the bag.

There are several reviews on Home Depot’s site, which give it a total of a four out of five rating.

It’s light weight enough for me, a 72 year old women, to use and does a fairly good job mowing. Doesn’t like tall weeds/grass so mow frequently. I would only recommend this for small areas. A good value for the money.

Want some price comparisons? Of course you do! $198 at Amazon and Walmart. ‘Nuff said! Home Depot’s price is about $60 less, making this a very solid deal, which includes free shipping.

This would make a great gift for someone whose lawn mower is struggling on its last legs, for someone who has just bought their first house or for your lawn boy.

Home Depot: GE Stainless Steel 30″ Designer Range Hood Was $1100 | Now $400

Posted by on May 8, 2015 at 10:08 AM

Home Depot: GE Stainless Steel 30 Designer Range Hood Was $1100 | Now $400

Home Depot Canada’s hammer drop deal of the day is hot! The GE Stainless Steel 30 Inch Designer Range Hood (PVWG930SSV) is on sale from $1098 down to just $399 plus shipping.

This is a one-day deal only! While shipping is not included, the price is very reasonable for such an item. I estimated shipping to my home (on Vancouver Island). It was just $21.99, which is a fair price in my books.

Now, price comparisons are integral to any deal, and a range hood is no exception. I price compared this exact range hood at a few different online retailers. Canadian Appliance Source has the range on sale for $998.  Sears Canada sells the GE range hood for $999.91. Bad Boy Superstore sells the same range hood for $1,248.88. Lastly, I found this range at Micheal’s Canada for $1,509.99.

I visited GE Appliance’s website as well to get an idea as to what this range should sell for. The company gives their own range a $1,268 manufacturer’s suggested retail price.

At Home Depot you are paying at least 60% less than the lowest price anywhere else right now. Seriously, this is a beautiful deal.

Of course, not everyone is going to need a new range hood. However, if you are planning to renovate your house, gut your kitchen, or just modernize your appliances, then this is a fantastic deal. I know many people who switch to stainless steel major appliances but never quite get around to replacing their old range hood. Now, it is affordable and stylish.

This GE Range Hood measures 30″. The hood features blue light touch controls with two halogen lights and a four-speed fan control. The halogen lights will help you see what you are cooking (and what colour it is turning). I like the four-speed fan control because hood fans are notoriously loud. My current hood fan has two settings: noisy and jet engine. With four speeds, you can turn the fan on and still be able to cook without earplugs.

This range hood comes with a full one-year warranty that covers both parts and labour.

Shipping prices may vary depending upon where you live. This deal is available online only. The range is currently in stock and it qualifies for a free return should it not be what you need.

Free May Home & Garden Workshops @ Home Depot Canada

Posted by on May 7, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Free May Home & Garden Workshops @ Home Depot Canada

New free workshops are available at Home Depot Canada! Every month Home Depot hosts a series of workshops that can help you improve your home and learn some new skills. This month three workshops, including one workshop for kids, is available. The focus this month is spring projects. You must register online to attend these free workshops.

Build A Picket Fence Frame Kids Workshop (Saturday May 9th)

My daughter has taken one of these workshops with her dad, and it was a great way for the two of them to bond. Build a picket fence frame with a hammer, small nails and wood glue. Best of all, leave the mess at the store and take home your project. If you have never tried one of the kid’s workshops, it is a fun day out. Kid’s workshops are for ages four to twelve.

Build a Vertical Garden (Wednesday May 20th)

This workshop is right up my alley as I love to garden. With this workshop, you learn how to build a vertical container garden. You will build a frame for your garden, learn about annual and perennial plants and talk about the basics of tending a vegetable garden. Your thumb will surely look greener by the time you leave. If you do not have a backyard, a container garden can easily be installed on a balcony. This workshop is part of the Do-It-Herself series for women.

Build A Deck (Sunday May 24th)

Here is a project that some of you may be eyeing for your own backyard. Building a deck seems simple enough until you are knee high in nails and boards. In this workshop, you will discuss safety procedures that you should consider for this project. You will also learn how to install a joist, install decking and name all of the parts of a deck. As I had to look up the term joist to make sure I was correct that it involved the support beams, I think I should attend this workshop myself. There is a note that this workshop is not available at the Cambie location.

I cannot speak to the quality of the home workshops, as I have never taken one for adults. What I can say is it can be useful to ask questions before you start a big project and to have someone guide you through the basics if you are not a construction pro. If you are considering starting one of these projects, you could potentially save yourself some money by learning the basics first.

Home Depot Canada: Sign Up For the Moving Newsletter To Get $10 Off $50 To Use In-Store

Home Depot Canada: Sign Up For the Moving Newsletter To Get $10 Off $50 To Use In Store

Come Spring, everyone gets involved in cleaning, renovations and sprucing up their yards. The Home Depot can be a huge help in these areas and what’s even a bigger help? Coupons to save you money on these tasks. If you sign up for Home Depot’s moving newsletter, you’ll be rewarded with an individual printable coupon for $10 off $50 to use in store.

So the particular newsletter that sends you the coupon is the one called “Moving Emails”. You’ll have to put in your move date and what sort of dwelling you are moving to to sign up for the emails and get your coupon. While you are there, you might as well sign up for the other two newsletters to see what kind of goodies you can get over time. I know that the garden one often will have weekly coupons for the garden centre, as I have already been signed up for that one for a few years now.

When I signed up for mine, the newsletters came within minutes. At the bottom of the email entitled “Let’s Get Moving!” is where you can find the link to click to get your coupon. You’ll get a coupon that you will print and take in to Home Depot the next time you go.

There is a limit of one coupon per person, but that doesn’t stop your spouse from signing up as well and using the coupon on a different trip.

The coupon is valid until the end of this year, but I can’t be sure as to when they’ll stop sending the coupon upon your newsletter sign-up, so you might not want to wait to sign up and print your coupon.

I’m looking to get a comfortable swing or swinging chair for my back deck, so I have somewhere nice to read in the evenings and on weekends (when the kids aren’t asking me to get up 1000 times). I’m hoping the Home Depot has something like this on sale that I can stack this coupon with. Something like this Dream chair for $399 would be wonderful.

For more Home Depot coupons to use online or printable coupons for in-store use, check out the forum. You can sign up to receive notifications every time a new Home Depot coupon is added, so you are always up to date on the latest.

Home Depot Canada: Stanley 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Was $160 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 10, 2015 at 10:01 AM

Home Depot Canada: Stanley 1600 PSI Electric Pressure Washer Was $160 | Now $100 & Free Shipping

Home Depot’s got a “Black Friday” sale going on this week, with discounts on a whole lot of items. One item I found in particular as a good, practical deal is the Stanley 1600 PSI 1.4 GPM electric pressure washer, regularly $159.99, now $99.99, plus free shipping.

This is something I know my husband is going to want. I think men just love washing things outdoors. I have to admit, when I wash something with a pressure washer or hose and I visually see the dirt coming off, it gives me a very satisfied feeling. Weird? Maybe. We just bought a trailer, and this will definitely come in handy in keeping it looking new.

This Stanley pressure washer is not the strongest on the market, but it does have good reviews and is a very affordable price. It is good for light to medium jobs like washing boats, motorcycles, decks, barbeques, patios, decks and all your other outdoor items. It is also lightweight so you can take it with you to the cottage or boat.

It has some pretty cool features like a unique tool belt clip, so it really stays with you. It also has a soap dispenser, turbo nozzle wand, quick connect and a straight brush, along with the high pressure hose. Auto shut off ensures your pump has a long life and conserves energy.

This review really summed it up for me:

This pressure washer did all the things I needed it for. The price was great and it works like a champ. I paid $50.00 to have my patio and porch cleaned by a pro last year. If this machine lasts another year I will have saved money.

Comparing prices around the net, I found this exact pressure washer at Staples where it is $150. Walmart sells a lower model of Stanley pressure washer with only 1450 PSI for $138. This deal at Home Depot is your best bet for this practical tool.

Home Depot Spring Black Friday: Shawson Lighting 32 Inch Track in Brushed Nickel Was $112 | Now $45 + Free Shipping

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Home Depot Spring Black Friday: Shawson Lighting 32 Inch Track in Brushed Nickel Was $112 | Now $45 + Free Shipping

Home Depot Canada has launched their Spring Black Friday & Cyber Monday sales. These promotions are bound to get the discounts you crave on tools and other items for around your home. Take a look through the Spring Black Friday offers available at Home Depot, but I thought I would tell you about the Shawson Lighting 32 Inch Track in Brushed Nickel Finish. During this Home Depot promotion, you will pay just $45 for this elegant lighting piece as opposed to the regular price of $112. Shipping is even included.

During my big spring cleaning phases in my home, I have noticed that I am not entirely content with the lighting choices in both my kitchen and bathroom. I would love to have a strip of lights, or track lighting that I could change the focal point, so I could have light towards the stove, sink and working counter top. For the bathroom, focal lighting points are great for doing makeup and hair too. This Shawson Lighting 32 Inch Track is available in a Brushed Nickel Finish, so it would look great with any other decor. This particular lighting would cost you $112 normally, but during the Home Depot Spring Black Friday & Cyber Monday event, you will be left paying just $45 including shipping.

It looks like there is only one other Canadian retailer that carries this product. If you were to grab this Shawson Lighting Track from Michaels.ca,  you would be looking at paying a whopping $104.38 once shipping costs are considered. Home Depot’s price is much better. This product also comes with a one year warranty.

Here is a look at some similar products and their prices:

  • Allan + Roth 4 Light Brushed Pewter Track Light for $74.99 + shipping @ Lowes.ca
  • Hampton Bay Rockland 4 Light Track Bar for $84.98 @ Home Depot
  • Eden 4 Light Track Light for $69.99 @ Rona.ca

This track lighting requires four 50W GU10 bulbs that are unfortunately not included. The lighting track itself measures about 32 inches wide x 6 inches high if you want to make sure it fits in the space you need before purchasing. This is a great buy if you are looking to set the tone of a certain room or even create a more artistic presence.

Not only is this Shawson Lighting 32 Inch Track discounted by $67, but you even get free shipping. This is a fabulous addition to the deal considering Home Depot shipping costs can be quite pricey. I remember trying to purchase a roll up hose from Home Depot and the shipping costs were going to be the same price as the hose. This item is also only available online, so luckily you don’t have to worry about the shipping costs.

Home Depot Canada: Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool (8lb) Only $3.49 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 8, 2015 at 6:35 PM

Home Depot Canada: Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool (8lb) Only $3.49 & Free Shipping

Home Depot currently has the Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool for only $3.49 with free shipping to your home.

I have seen this deal on before, but Home Depot was out of stock at the time. Thankfully, the stock has been replenished so you can pick up the Husky Magnetic Pick Up Tool for a few dollars with free shipping. I could not find this tool anywhere else in Canada, but similar tools retailed for $5 US or more. For similar tools, Canadian Tire has the Telescopic Magnetic Pick-Up Tool for $13.99 but it only handles 1.5 lbs. The Hillman Group Telescoping Magnetic Pick Up Tool is $7.99 at Lowes.ca. the cheapest tool like this sold by Amazon Canada is the Master Magnetics 07228 Magnetic Pick-Up Tool – certified for 3 pounds – that costs $5.02.

It is important to recognize this is not your standard magnetic pick up too. This tool extends to over 24″ to pick up objects in rather hard to reach places. The heavy-duty magnetic tip can lift up to 8 pounds. Your average magnetic pick up tool you might purchase at the dollar store cannot handle that kind of weight.

The little tool also has a cushioned grip for comfort while you are working. Now, not everyone one of these – but they do come in very handy. If you drop a screw or bold somewhere you cannot easily reach, then just use the magnetic tool to retrieve it.

When I was disassembling and reassembling my PS3, I dropped a screw into a very tight corner. Using two screwdrivers I finally managed to retrieve the screw – with some difficulty. A tool like this would have made that job a whole lot easier.

I have also dropped nails behind the headboard of my bed while hanging pictures, dropped tweezers down air vents, and lost paperclips in the abyss of my drawers. A tool like this could be quite useful for retrieving small metal items.

The device also has a little pen clip for hooking on your belt while you work. That way you never have to find the tool that is going to help you find your lost screw.

I figured that for $3.49 with free shipping, this is a handy little tool.

Home Depot Canada: Black & Decker 7.5 Amp Reciprocating Saw Now Only $30 & Other Hot Tool Deals (Expired)

Posted by on February 24, 2015 at 8:16 AM

Home Depot Canada: Black & Decker 7.5 Amp Reciprocating Saw Now Only $30 & Other Hot Tool Deals (Expired)

It seems Home Depot has a few pretty hot tool deals today, but it would be hard to know if you didn’t already know prices or you did a ton of research. This is where we come in, doing the research for you and pointing out the hot deals.

The first deal I see is on the Black & Decker 7.5 amp reciprocating saw, which is now priced at $30, with no regular price in site. But, I price compared at other stores and found this is a steal of a deal. Shop.ca sells this saw for $97.99. Amazon has a saw that looks exactly the same but says 8.5 amp, selling by a secondary seller for $82.06.

While this saw isn’t carried at many Canadian stores, I see it at U.S. stores selling around the $100 mark. The U.S. NewEgg sells it for $83.40. Of course you wouldn’t get it from there, but I’m just giving you a fair comparison of what this saw sells for all over.

Before Christmas I heard my husband mention reciprocating saw at least 20 times. I’ve of course sent him this deal and he is all over it.

Another hot deal that you’ll want to check out at Home Depot says it is on backorder, so cross your fingers for delivery. Get the Dewalt 1/2 inch 2 speed pistol hammerdrill for $24.99. Again, no regular price is mentioned so I had to rely on the powers of research to find what this tool normally sells for. Amazon is selling this drill for $179.82. Lowes has got it for $199. As you can see, this is a fantastic price.

I wouldn’t wait to order either tool as I can see them selling out quickly, especially the one on backorder. You may be asking yourself what you need these tools for, but one day you could be in a situation where you might need a hammer drill or a reciprocating saw and wish that you’d spend less than 1/4 of the price of one.

Both items will ship for free from Home Depot.

Hot! DeWalt 18V 1/4 Inch Impact Driver Now $62 & Free Shipping @ Home Depot.ca (Expired)

Posted by on February 23, 2015 at 8:45 AM

Hot! DeWalt 18V 1/4 Inch Impact Driver Now $62 & Free Shipping @ Home Depot.ca (Expired)

Home Depot just discounted a great Dewalt Impact Driver. While they do not include the original price, similar Dewalt Impact drivers start at $129 and only go up from there. You can steal this impact driver for only $61.96. Free shipping is also included with this item as it exceeds the $49 minimum.

If you have a major home improvement project in the works, this is the deal for you. The price on the Dewalt 18V ¼ Inch Impact Driver just dropped to $61.96. A very similar Dewalt 18V ¼ Inch without the battery or charger is selling currently for $129 at Home Depot right now. That is a savings of 48% before you add the additional cost of an 18 volt battery. Upon going into my cart for a split second, an original price of $249 was shown on this driver before it quickly changed to the new price. I would grab this driver fast, as it is already showing to be on back order at Home Depot. You can still purchase it as this great sale price, but it may take a few extra days before you receive it.

This is an impact drill from Dewalt is a kit that includes a case and two batteries. An extra battery is a nice feature so you will not have to stop your project to recharge. Dewalt is one of the top competitors on the tool market. You know with this premium brand you are getting a quality tool that will stand up to home repair abuse. If you are skeptical, Dewalt has a 3-year warranty on this driver to ensure it will take you the extra mile. Drive screws with no pilot holes easily with the 1,330 in-lbs of torque in this driver to help you get the job done.

If you are a tool novice, you might be wondering why you need an impact driver. A regular electronic screwdriver functions on many jobs. If you are installing cabinets, hanging gutters or any other project where you need to drive many screws into the woodwork, an impact driver is much more efficient. Check out this article from Popular Mechanics about the differences between a traditional power screwdriver and an impact driver for a more detailed description.

Looking at the competitors, this exact impact driver including the battery and charger is currently being sold on Amazon.ca for $171.99. Lowes.ca has this same impact driver available without the battery or charger for $129. Canadian Tire is selling this Dewalt impact driver, but only as part of a set with a power drill for $289.99. This is a much hotter deal at Home Depot.

Reviewers seem happy with this impact driver and thrilled that it stands up to home repairs and projects. Here is one happy review:

Hot! DeWalt 18V 1/4 Inch Impact Driver Now $62 & Free Shipping @ Home Depot.ca (Expired)

I would grab this one fast. With the driver already in backorder, it probably will not be long before the deal is gone. Free shipping is also included to sweeten this deal further.

Home Depot: Makita Cordless Screwdriver w/ 80-pc Bit Set Only $40 & Free Shipping

Posted by on January 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Home Depot: Makita Cordless Screwdriver w/ 80 pc Bit Set Only $40 & Free Shipping

Hurry over to Home Depot Canada to pick up this Makita 4.8 Cordless Screwdriver with 80 Piece Bit Set for just $39.97 with free shipping.

While Home Depot does not list the original price of this set, I have done some research. Here is what this set sells for at other retailers:

  • $58.99 @ Shop.ca (OOS)
  • $44.99 + $7.99 shipping @ Elite Tools Canada
  • $50.99 + $20.74 shipping + $4.95 handling @ Black Rock Tools Canada

Elite Tools lists the original price of this set as $89.99 while Black Rock Tools lists the original retail price as $80.99. No matter where I looked, this set was cheapest at Home Depot and the free shipping offer really makes the entire deal shine.

This tool is listed as professional grade and made for serious do it yourself-ers. The screwdriver has a LED job light and an independent on/off switch with forward and reverse modes as well. There is an adjustable hinged handle for getting into hard to reach places or placing screws close to a 90-degree angle. The soft grip handle is comfortable to hold for longer periods of time.

The battery comes built in. One customer wanted to know if the battery is lithium, and he received this response from another customer:

No, it is a built-in Ni-Cad battery that is expensive to replace. I have had mine for close to five years and the battery is pretty well done. Once the battery goes, you throw it out and buy a new one. At that price you can’t go wrong. Good little screwdriver for the money.

That is a pretty good battery to last for five years. I also think you are getting incredible value for your money as you not only get the screwdriver, but also an 80-piece bit set with your purchase. For $39.97 and free shipping, you cannot go wrong.

According to Makita, the set also comes with a charger for the battery. I expected this, but sometimes sets just do not come with everything you need. The handy plastic case will keep the charger, buts, and screwdriver organized and together at all times.

This set is sold online only, and currently ships in five to nine days. I took my cart all the way to where I need to enter my credit card info, and the set is still showing as in stock for me as of this time. However, it could sell out at any time.

Update Your Home In The New Year With Free Workshops @ Home Depot Canada

Posted by on December 31, 2014 at 2:43 PM

Update Your Home In The New Year With Free Workshops @ Home Depot Canada

My New Years resolution was to repair some things in my home. I have a broken tile in my kitchen and my bathroom could use some updates. Fortunate enough, the Home Depot Canada free workshops involve both of these little home renovations. For the month of January, you can visit your local Home Depot store and take part in some free do-it-yourself workshops. There is even a workshop for the kiddos, which is a great way to spend some quality time together.

Build a Sled – 10th January @ 10 AM

  • This Home Depot Canada free workshop is an excellent opportunity to get out there and spend some bonding time with your kids. This workshop will take 2 hours to complete. The Build a Sled demo is best suited for children ages 4 – 12, and their parents of course. You and your child will learn how to build a simple sled using glue and a hammer.

Quick Bathroom Updates – 17th January @ 10 AM

  • My bathroom could use an update. If your bathroom needs some finishing touches too, this 1 hour do it yourself workshop will be perfect. During this free Home Depot demo, you will learn how to choose a faucet, replace grout and ceramic wall tiles, select lighting, accessories and more.

Tile a Kitchen Backsplash – 21st January @ 7 PM (women)

  • This Home Depot Canada free workshop is one hour in length. This particular workshop is “Do-it-Herself” and is geared towards women. Ladies, you can learn what tools you will need to complete a kitchen backsplash. You will also learn about basic safety and the steps required to do this job properly. A few locations are exempt from this workshop including: Trois Rivieres, Victoriaville, Sherbrooke, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Granby stores.

Install Ceramic Tile – 25th January @ 1 PM

  • I have one kitchen tile in front of my fridge that is broken. Honestly, it drives me crazy but I have no idea how to fix it. I, for one, should take advantage of the free workshop from Home Depot so that I can learn how to install ceramic tile. This workshop will only take one hour of your time. You will learn how to properly lay out your floor design as well as how to lay and cut tile.

If you’re looking for inexpensive ways to get out and do something, these Home Depot free workshops are great. Maybe you can even make some new friends. I would book your spot early though, spots can run out quickly – especially for the kid demos.

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Posted by on December 18, 2014 at 2:09 PM

Home Depot: Himalayan Salt Lamp $20 & Free Shipping

Purchase a Himalayan Ionic Natural Salt Lamp (11-15 lbs) for only $19.99 plus free shipping. This lamp originally cost $27.50 at Home Depot.

While this may not seem like a large discount on the lamp, this is a very good deal for several reasons. First, the lamp retails for much higher elsewhere. I found the exact same lamp for $34.28 at Amazon Canada. I also found other Himalayan Salt Lamps of the same size (11 – 15 lbs) at places like Well.ca for $34.49. The average price for an 11 to 15 lb (5 to 6.8 kg) seems to be the mid-$35 range, so scoring a lamp for only $20 is sweet. The free shipping is also very nice as this lamp weighs quite a bit.

Now, what is a Himalayan Salt Lamp all about anyway? Activated Himalayan salt is believed to aid in the reduction of electromagnetic pollution (like from electronics), by the release of negative ions. This is supposed to have numerous health benefits including relaxation, improved focus, and more. The question always comes down to – is this all hype or is it truly healthy? According to numerous experts – it is mostly just hype. As one article puts it:

Suggesting that a Himalayan Salt Lamp can generate enough negative ions to benefit your health is like suggesting that a farmer could water thirty acres of farmland with a hand-held spray bottle.

You get the point. However, the salt lamp has other benefits. The lamp creates a warm glow that can be very relaxing and help you reduce stress. Stress is like a toxin to your body so anything that reduces stress is very good for your body and your mind. The lamp is also soothing, sets the mood, is comforting, and can be downright enjoyable. As this reviewer says:

The warm golden glow of that light shining through the salt crystal is amazingly comforting. To me, it looks like the sun at sunset. I use it for a night light. The adjustable brightness control is ideal for the nights when I prefer a darker bedroom. Though, It would be beautiful and soothing in any room.

The Himalayan Salt Lamp also works through a placebo effect. That is when people believe that something works and thus they exhibit symptoms of improvement that align with their belief of how the thing should be helping them. It is cool how strong the power of belief is – it can heal your body and help you on the path to wellness.

Home Depot Pre Boxing Day Flyer Starts Now Until December 24th

Home Depot has released their Pre Boxing Week Blowout flyer. The deals start today and will run through the 24th of December. That means it is time to stop procrastinating and get the tools and appliances you need.

This is an excellent event to shop if you need to freshen up your home with some new appliances or other household items. You will get fantastic Boxing Week prices and then get another 10% off the last ticketed price on major appliances.

The Amana Laundry pair is exclusive to Home Depot and looks like a wonderful deal. This pair consists of a 3.6 Cu. Ft. washer as well as a 6.5 Cu. Ft. dryer. This team is sure to tackle all of your laundry missions. I couldn’t find this on site, so this is an in-store only deal. This Amana washer and dryer would normally cost you $696 but during this Pre Boxing Week Blowout at Home Depot, you will pay just $575.10.

If you were looking for some last minute Christmas ideas rather than large appliances, you won’t be let down. The 5 piece Husky 3/8″ Drive Mechanic Tool Set was $55 and now just $24.88. If you are tired of your man leaving the garage as a tornado of clustered tools, then you might also appreciate the Husky 52″ 18 Drawer Tool Chest and Cabinet Set for $599. Other brands can compare at $699-$899 for similar products, although this particular Husky tool chest is exclusive to Home Depot. Of course if you were looking for something a little smaller, you could always go for the Husky 46″ 9 Drawer Mobile Workbench, which is now $299 while quantities last. All of these tools are available in-store only.

If you were actually in the market for furniture rather than appliances, there are lots of deals on home organization, chairs and other items for your home. In fact you could organize your main entry for only $159.94 when you purchase the Entryway Wall Storage along with the Entryway Bench with Shoe Storage as advertised in the flyer. These particular items are available in stores only.

There are also clearance items available at a great discount, while quantities last. You will save up to 50% off select:

  • interior lighting
  • Christmas lights
  • yard decor and inflatables

You can also save up to 30% off select:

  • artificial Christmas trees
  • wreaths
  • ornaments

I know some families like to set up their Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, which would make this an excellent chance to save on your Christmas tree and decor and still be able to get it up on Christmas Eve. Personally, I bought my tree last year at the Target clearance sale after Christmas and had it set up late November this year in my home.

You can see this Home Depot flyer in our forum.
