Costco Canada: $40 Off Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner – Now $100

Posted by on April 13, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Costco Canada: $40 Off Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner   Now $100

Cleaning after pets is serious business, especially if yours shed a lot. Costco has just discounted the Bissell SpotBot pet deep cleaner by $40. Originally priced at $139.99, it’s now on sale for just $99.99. Shipping is free as well.

According to its description, the Bissell SpotBot pet deep cleaner “cleans deeper, better and faster due to its innovative new “needle” technology”, an attribute that I’m particularly curious about because with two long-haired cats, my place is in need of a good vacuuming every couple of days. With a one year old baby crawling around everywhere, it’s hard to keep up with all of the cleaning and even then, it feels as though the vacuum I have just doesn’t do as good of a job on carpets as perhaps this Bissell one might.

Do keep in mind that this cleaner is best used on rugs or even material couches. In fact, I’m even tempted to get it for those times that something gets spilled on the carpet. There’s nothing worse than having to get on your hand and knees to scrub the stain away, so if a hand-held cleaner can do the job, than that’s even better!

Although Costco has reduced this cleaner by $40, it’s actually more expensive at other stores. While Amazon has it on sale for $149 (Reg. $223.99), Sears is selling it for $169.99. Since Costco’s site doesn’t have any reviews for it, here’s one I found at Sears:

This is the best upholstery cleaner I’ve ever owned. I have 2 pugs and clean my couch weekly as a result. The Bissell SpotBot makes this job quick and painless and does a fantastic job deep cleaning the fabric.

At Sears, this pet deep cleaner actually has 12 reviews with a total rating of 4.2/5 stars — that’s pretty good in my book! Another reviewer also mentioned how great this cleaner is on fur balls or even little gifts that pets sometimes leave on carpets. I have had to throw away a carpet in the past because there was just no salvaging the mess of fur balls, spills and gifts but I’m sure that if I had used the Bissell cleaner to spot clean, then it would still be in perfect condition!

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Posted by on April 12, 2015 at 8:00 PM

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

If you have a LEGO fan at all in your house, you may find you have a few extra LEGO bricks around. LEGO bricks and accessories can be used for endless fun kid projects, but you can also use them to make functional items for your home. These hacks are just the right amount of fun and function to give your space a twist on the cheap. Try some of these hacks and soon everything in your home will be awesome.

LEGO Minifigure Cord Holders

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

I just learned that the hand of a Minifigure is the perfect size to hold many different electronic cords including the Apple lightning cord. I got this idea from the blog Modernistic Design. Use a Minifigure to organize your cords and easily find your cell phone cord. It is so fun having those little guys waiting for you when you go to charge your phone. In addition, if you have more than one person’s cord into the same charger you can assign each person his or her own fun Minifigure and keep the cords organized.

LEGO Ping Pong Table

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

This is an awesome way to turn an old kitchen table or card table into a quick ping-pong table, as demonstrated over on Mod Frugal. Build your net using LEGO and there will be no question which side of the table the ball hit on. Whether you build this project for inside or outside, this will be the centre of your next casual party.  This hack is much cheaper than purchasing most ping pong sets. Buying a real ping pong table costs around $200 bucks and up, while a portable kit can cost anywhere from $25 to $50.  Two paddles and a few ping-pong balls should run you less than $15.

LEGO Key Holder

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

If you are always losing your keys, this is the hack for you from Man Made. With only a few simple LEGO pieces you can quickly create a key holder that will help you keep everyone’s keys in the house organized. I have seen several LEGO key holders around the web, but I like this one the best because the LEGO pieces you attach to your key ring are slim and does not weigh down your keys. Use this to keep other keys in check also such as your mail key or bicycle lock.

LEGO Lamp

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

This is a neat lamp from Recyclart that looks simple enough to make. This post does not have instructions but the pictures should give you plenty of inspiration. The shade is a simple box shape with some intentional holes to let light through. The most difficult part will be cutting a hole in the baseplate. I recommend using two smaller baseplates and cutting a half circle out of each of them using a hot wire. Once your hole is cut, you can glue the two plates together. Cutting the hole in two pieces should be simpler than attempting to cut a round hole out of the plastic baseplate.

LEGO Clock

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Give your clock a makeover with this fun and inexpensive LEGO clock. This one is perfect from Our Nerd Home. You can easily change out the minifigures or LEGO bricks to match your mood. This project should be a quick to make, and will surely catch your eye. Clock kits run around $10 to $15, or you could try to use the parts from a thrifted clock for much less.

LEGO Bird Feeder

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Over at Fun Craft Kids I love this awesome LEGO bird feeder. Build your own version and welcome all the migratory birds back. What a great way to connect a LEGO loving kid with nature. This project can be as simple or elaborate as you want, so start stacking those bricks.

LEGO Napkin Holder

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Over on I Dig Pinterest they created a really neat napkin holder. This napkin holder was originally designed for a kids’ birthday party, but would look equally cool holding your napkins in your kitchen. Make it a race and see who in your family can build a napkin holder the fastest.

LEGO Hand Soap

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Stop paying extra for hand soap in your bathroom or kitchen the looks fun and check out this LEGO hand soap from Rockin Boys. Grab a cheap bottle of clear soap at the dollar store and add LEGO for a bottle of soap that looks like you spent three times as much. Plus once the soap is gone, the LEGO could still be played with in this quick and easy hack.

LEGO Kitchen Counter

9 LEGO Hacks For Your Home You Need To Try

Over on the blog Geeky Gadgets there is an amazing IKEA counter featured that is covered from top to bottom with LEGO. This amazing design hack may not save you any money, unless you have a true LEGO fanatic in your house and have over 20.000 lego pieces laying around. This IKEA covered kitchen counter was just too cool not to include. Perhaps if you have a lot of LEGO, you could cover your end table with this same concept for a cheap but fun look.

Bargainmoosers, what would you make out of LEGO for your home?

Amazon Canada: $50 Off Cuisinart PerfectTemp Programmable Kettle (Tea or Coffee) – Was $130 | Now $80

Posted by on April 12, 2015 at 10:30 AM

Amazon Canada: $50 Off Cuisinart PerfectTemp Programmable Kettle (Tea or Coffee)   Was $130 | Now $80

Love to have a lot of options at your disposal? The Cuisinart PerfectTemp CPK-17C programmable kettle is currently $50 off at Amazon. Originally priced at $129.99, it’s now down to $79.99.

Not only does the PerfectTemp kettle look amazing but the great part about it as that it has a myriad of different options. It has the following preset temperature controls, along with the appropriate indicators:

  • Delicate (160°F)
  • Green (175°F)
  • White (185°F)
  • Oolong (190°F)
  • Herbal (200°F)
  • Black (Boil – 212°F)
  • French Press (200°F)

With the last preset, you can impress guests by making them a French Press coffee with your tea kettle… or you could just use it for yourself of course. This is actually a pretty neat feature because instead of cluttering your counters with plenty different tools to for coffee or tea-making, you could just have the one.

Powered with 1500 watts of power for faster heating, this kettle has a total hold capacity of 1.7 liters, has a 30-minute keep warm function, has a 360 degree swivel cordless connector and a blue backlit water window. It also boils dry and automatically shuts off when ready or when there is no more water. If you happen to lift it off the base before it’s done brewing, then it also has a 2-minute memory feature that will keep it from shutting off and losing the brewing time.

With all its bells and whistles, this kettle certainly looks great, especially with positive reviews like this one that I found on Best Buy‘s site, where it’s priced at $89.99:

I was struggling to find the perfect kettle for various types of teas, until I came across this one. It is easy to use, small footprint, and has no BPAs.

Other reviewers knocked this kettle for having “too much of a good thing” and that all of the options are overkill. The way I see it though is that if you don’t want all of these options, then don’t get it in the first place! Personally, I love having different options at my disposable, so to me, this is actually a perk!

At Kitchen Stuff Plus, PerfectTemp kettle is currently on sale for $99.99 (reg. $124.99), which is still significantly higher than at Amazon.

By getting it at Amazon, you’re also set to get free shipping as all orders over $25 automatically ship for free.

Striped Stoneware Pitcher Was $35 | Now $14.50 (FS @ $25) @ Chapters Indigo

Posted by on April 12, 2015 at 9:44 AM

Striped Stoneware Pitcher Was $35 | Now $14.50 (FS @ $25) @ Chapters Indigo

The striped pitcher is on sale with 58% off right now @ Chapters Indigo Canada. This cheery pitcher was $35, but is now on sale for only $14.50.

I love the colourful look of this stoneware pitcher. The bright colours remind me of sunshine, flowers and lemonade on the patio. This compact pitcher would be perfect for your first backyard BBQ of the season, or would be a beautiful addition when you plan to invite me over for homemade brunch. Stoneware is versatile, durable and looks so much prettier than a cheapie plastic pitcher on your table. I also appreciate that you can put this pitcher in the dishwasher.

This pitcher is on the smaller side. It is 7.8 inches tall and holds 32 ounces. A pitcher of this size is perfect for juice or stronger cocktails. Chapters Indigo also suggests that you could put flowers in this pitcher. This would look simply darling full of daisies or with a mixed bouquet on your kitchen counter. I think this would be a beautiful gift for Mother’s Day, though I would add flowers to complete the gift.

Price Comparison

A comparable stoneware pitcher might be the Maxwell & Williams Sprinkle Collection Pitcher And Tray Set @ Bed Bath and Beyond for $33.99. If you prefer name brand, another version of this pitcher might be this blue stoneware Le Creuset Stoneware Pitcher that is on sale for $53.83 @ Amazon.ca. It is difficult to find items that compare online. I do not see many pitchers on the internet that are made of stoneware but have often seen them on a shelf in higher end home stores.

Shipping

Shipping is free is you spend a minimum of $25 @ Chapters Indigo. You can also ship this item to a store near you for pickup for free shipping. If you choose to order only this item, shipping is only $5 when I add the item to my cart and checkout.

If you are thinking about a few items to top off your cart, there are several other pitchers on sale also. Perhaps you can pick one out for yourself and one for your mom. The Pink Leaf pitcher was $29, but is now only $14.50. This pitcher is also made of stoneware and holds 54 ounces. If you wanted an alternative that holds more lemonade, this would be a good buy.

Another great option is the Concentric Pitcher that was $35, but is now $14.50. This pitcher is also made of stoneware and is available in black. I like the textured ribbed design. Some bright coloured flowers would look beautiful in this pitcher. This one is even bigger holding 63.2 ounces, and I like the tall and slim design.

I would grab one or several of these pitchers now. The good items in the Chapters Indigo sale section never seem to last long with their great shipping rates. Now I just need to figure out the perfect place for my new cheery pitcher.

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth – Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 3, 2015 at 12:44 PM

NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)* BUMP – a further $20 discount since this was first posted – they’re now down to only $129 with free shipping! *

NCIX Canada has a hot deal on the Simple Audio LISTEN stereo speakers with bluetooth. Originally priced as high as $499, they’re now 70% off and can be yours for just $149 $129. This includes free shipping and a 298 bonus NCIX Rewards points.

The fact that these speakers were originally priced as high as $499 is really quite impressive, although at Amazon.ca, they are currently on sale from $349.77 from an original list price of $549.99.

In any case, this is a fantastic deal, especially since shipping is included. There is no word on when this deal might expire but my guess is that it’s probably “while supplies last”.

I’m not the most savvy when it comes to speakers and so I tend to judge the quality of these from reviews. Out of 18 reviews, the Simple Audio LISTEN speakers actually have a recommendation rate of 94%. That’s really quite awesome, especially since some reviewers labels these speakers as being some of the best ones, especially for the sale price. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about them:

These are a good buy when on (huge) sale, but there are other comparable systems around the $200 mark. They sound very nice with enough bass by themselves if you’re just sitting at a desk. I use them for my TV & PS4.

According to another reviewer, these are comparable to $200 speakers on the market and yet other reviewers claim that these also stand up very nicely to BOSE ones, which are considered to be some of the very best ones that you can get (these do however come with a pretty hefty price tag as well).

If you have been looking for quality speakers but haven’t been wanting to shell out more than a couple of hundreds of dollars on them, then these ones are a hot must-buys. They offer a 40W per channel class-d amplifier, along with a fully integrated DPS and digital signal path.

The interface is also a touch-enabled one, which is definitely a handy feature to show off to guests. NCIX Canada: 70% Off Simple Audio LISTEN Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth   Was $500 | Now $129 (& Free Shipping) (EXPIRED)

Canadian Freebie: Free Durahook Coat Hook

Posted by on April 3, 2015 at 11:00 AM

Canadian Freebie: Free Durahook Coat Hook

Here is a great little freebie to grab. Durahook is offering a free coat hook sample now. You can pick your colour and ship your free hook to your house for no cost, including free shipping.

This is a nice offer from Durahook Coat Hook. Simply give them your address and they will ship you a free coat hook that attached to the wall. You are limited to only one freebie per household. This free metal coat hook is available in a wide range of colours including:

  • White
  • Red
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Claret
  • Baby Blue
  • Yellow
  • Spearmint
  • Green
  • Ocean Blue

These hooks attach to the wall using screws, so you may want to get out your drill. They are made of strong metal designed to be hold the weight of a book bag. I have broken more than one hook with the weight of my heavy purse so maybe this hook would be the perfect place to stash my bag. These durable hooks are originally designed for schools and nurseries. With the wide range of colours, they would be perfect for a kid’s room.

The curved design of these hooks minimizes coat hook injuries according to Durahook. I was not aware there were many coat hook injuries per year but I could use this as a hook for my kid’s coat and be on the safer side. My daughter is more likely to jab herself in the eye with a coat hook than I! My daughter is always bouncing around.  I am happy to test this hook myself when the free sample shows up at my house.

One of the best parts about this deal is that even though there is a billing address and a shipping address, there is no credit card information needed to score this deal. Simply pick your colour, add your contact information and you are set to receive your free hook. I received an e-mail confirmation almost immediately in my e-mail. This freebie is not limited to Canada, so pass it along to your friends and family in the USA, UK or Australia who also qualify to receive a free coat hook sample. This company is in the UK which is why you see prices listed in pounds. I suspect shipping may take a little longer, but that is OK by me because it is free.

Bargainmoosers, where will you hang your free coat hook?

Best Buy Canada: King Koil Gel & Memory Foam Pillow Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 23, 2015 at 9:18 AM

Best Buy Canada: King Koil Gel & Memory Foam Pillow Was $90 | Now $40 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

If you are in the market for your next great sleep, start at your pillow. This Smart Gel pillow is on sale from $89.99, now to $39.99, and you’ll also get free shipping thrown in as well.

I recently bought a pillow just like this and paid quite a bit of money for it. I truly believe your pillow is the gateway to a good sleep. I take my pillow with me anywhere I go that I need to sleep in a different bed when I can. In fact, a few weeks ago I was away at a conference and forgot my pillow. I feel like I got zero sleep that night.

What’s awesome about this pillow besides that it is $50 off, is that has memory foam to conform to your head and neck, but its not like those ones that you sink right into and get suffocated by the pillow cradling around your face. What’s also great is that it has smart gel, which keeps you cool. If you are menopausal, post-partum or too hot when you sleep, this pillow is a godsend. I remember one of the worst problems I went through after having a baby is that I couldn’t stop sweating. This pillow would have really helped with that.

There are four reviews on Best Buy’s website and they all give this pillow a five-star rating:

This is a very comfortable pillow. Hugs your head but gives support. I sleep on my side and my neck does not kink at all. I highly recommend it.

Shopping around, I found this pillow selling at Walmart for $49. While that is not the regular price posted on Best Buy’s site, Best Buy still beats this price by $10 and Walmart is also out of stock. Future Shop has it on sale, but for $53.99.

I wouldn’t wait to ask around if anyone has this pillow, as I know it is going to sell out quickly. It is also a today only deal.

Sears Canada: Today Only Bath Sheets Were $25 | Now $15 (FS @ $99)

Posted by on February 18, 2015 at 12:08 PM

Sears Canada: Today Only Bath Sheets Were $25 | Now $15 (FS @ $99)

Stock up on the basics today only at Sears Canada. They’ve got their wholeHome Oxygen bath towels, sheets and face cloths on sale for 40% off.

If there is one thing that every family needs, it is towels. As I realized when the towels I was given on my wedding grew old and smelly, towels can be expensive! Unfortunately, they are also not something you want handed down to you. Well, I’ve had towels handed down to us from our in-laws, but they are probably the only people I’d like them from as they keep everything in their home immaculate. Their hand-me-down towels were in better condition than the ones I had bought new!

Either way, it looks like it might be time to get more new ones as I’m finding they are losing that softness, that some have a weird smell I can’t get rid of and they are somewhat frayed. Plus, I have no idea where all the hand towels went. I bet if I looked in the garage, I might find them near my husband’s tools, so those won’t be making their way into the main bathroom again.

These towels at Sears look very plus, with 400 grams per square metre of weight and extra-long staple cotton. No idea what those terms mean? It just means they are very soft and lightweight. You can even get them monogrammed for an extra charge.

There are eight colour choices available, and all are a light colour. Bath sheets, which are the larger version of a bath towel, meant to stay around you after your shower were $24.99 and are now $14.99. Bath towels were $15.99 and are now $8.99. Facecloths were $7.99 and now $3.99. Hand towels were $9.99 and now $5.99.

Because shipping is free at $99, you’ll want to get the entire set. If you spend less than $99, you’ll be charged a $7.95 fee for shipping, so buying one facecloth and paying shipping really isn’t a smart move.

Consider that you can get yourself two bath sheets, four bath towels, two hand towels and six face cloths for a grand total of $102 including shipping. Regularly that would come to $180. I think this would make a fantastic wedding gift, but I may be bias.

Originally $59.99, the mount is now on sale for $17.94. Depending on what coupon you use, this mount comes down to either $14.36 or $13.46.

One reviewer said:

Bon produit, prix acceptable (en solde) facile à installer. Les spécifications correspondent bien au produit.

(Good product, acceptable prices (on sale) easy to install. The specifications correspond to the product.)

Honestly, to get a TV mount for under $15 is pretty amazing.

While a small thing, I think this Angry Birds Piglet Plush Embroidered Backpack would be a rather cool gift to your child. The plush green backpack looks like a rectangle pig from the popular Angry Birds game. I hope that your kids will not use their new backpack for target practice. The piglet plush backpack is on clearance for just $6.94. After coupon code, you will either pay $5.56 or $5.20 for this backpack for ages six or up.

I could not help but look at the Monster High toys on clearance. This Monster High ”13 Wishes” Desert Frights Oasis & Cleo De Nile Play Set is on sale from $44.99 down to $31.94. After the coupon for any currency, the set comes down to $25.56. If I had a Sears Financial Credit Card then I would only need to pay $23.96. It includes one of the most popular Monster High Dolls, Cleo De Nile. I always find her one of the more expensive dolls to purchase separately. The same set is reselling for nearly double from secondary sellers on Amazon Canada.

These coupons make for extraordinary savings. Shipping to store costs $3.95, while shipping to your home starts at $7.95. For this and future Sears Canada coupon codes, visit our forum.

Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Posted by on January 18, 2015 at 5:00 PM

Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Mmmmm general tao… why go to a restaurant when you can make your own? But you’re going to need a good knife and if you don’t already have one, then I found a great deal on the Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set at Best Buy. Originally priced at $149.99, you can now save $60 and get it for just $89.99.

Using a picture of delicious-looking General Tao when talking about a knife block set may seem like an odd choice but fact of the matter is that you need a good knife when handling meat. I’m not the one who handle the deboning and slicing chore or meat handling in my household, but every time my hubby does it, he makes sure to sharpen his knife beforehand!

The Cuisinart 15-pc knife block set comes with:

  • 8″ chef’s knife
  • 8″ bread knife
  • 5.5″ serrated utility knife
  • 5″ Santoku knife
  • 3.5″ pairing knife
  • Six 4.5″ steak knives
  • Sharpening steel
  • Shears (scissors)
  • Knife block

Just writing about this knife block set is making me want to get it for myself because the blade is made from high-carbon stainless steel and the handle is ergonomically designed. My hubby is a leftie, while I’m a rightie, so it would definitely make things easier for him.

Personally, I would ditch the knife block, however. I have heard it being mentioned numerous times on television daytime shows like The Doctors and Dr. Oz that these are the perfect habitat for bacteria. Perhaps it would be okay to use at first but it should definitely be discontinued after a couple of months.

Price comparing, I found this same knife block set retailing for its full price of $189.99 at Sears.

To get back to the topic of General Tao, if you have never made it yourself, it’s super easy and I definitely recommend General Tsao’s chicken recipe available on All Recipes. If you like cooking completely from scratch, then it’s the perfect recipe to follow or you could just do what I do and buy a bottle of General Tao sauce. Once your chicken is cooked, you simply douse it in the sauce and voila — restaurant quality General Tao! Best Buy Canada: $60 Off Cuisinart 15pc Knife Block Set – Now $90

Shipping Best ships orders over $25 for free, you’re sure to get this knife block set shipped to you at no extra cost.

Today only, Hudson’s Bay is having a flash sale during which you can save up to 60% on bed and bath products by Hotel Collection. Pillow, duvets, towels and select bed collections have all been reduced.

In the pillows & duvets section, you can save on the following 6 products:

There are a total of 68 items to pick from in the Bed Collections category, like:

I also spotted the chevron quilted throw on sale for just $120. It was originally priced at $200 and looks like it could be amazing to use during the winter to stay warm. Technically, it’s a decorative throw but there’s nothing stopping you from actually using it as it features a plush textured feel.

In the towel department, you can get the Hotel Collection microcotton bath towel on sale for just $15.99 instead of its regular price of $27.99 (43% off). Made from 100% ringspun microcotton, it’s available in a total of 17 colours like: aegan, cassis, cloud, espresso, horizon, ivory, mercury, etc. It also features a rubbed detailing. In terms of reviews, there are only 6 of them but 5/6 have given these towels a perfect review. The only reviewer that didn’t give it a perfect rating stated that they didn’t know how it was as it was a gift. Here’s what another reviewer had to say:

Bought these towels for our new motorhome and I was so impressed I ordered another set for our ensuite.

My household has been due for new towels for some time now, so I’ll definitely be picking up a couple of these towels in either ivory, carbon or primrose. I’m particularly excited by the fact that according to the description, they’re soft to the touch and have a luxurious feel. Just make sure to not wash them with any products containing benzoil peroxide to avoid spotting or bleaching.

Shipping is free on orders over $99.

Chapters Indigo Canada: 60% Off iHome iD48 iPhone, iPod & iPad Portable Stereo System   Was $99 | Now $40

While quantities last, you can pick up an iHome iD48 portable rechargeable stereo system for Apple products for just $39.60. It originally retailed for $99. Shipping will also be free as Chapters Indigo ships all orders over $25 for free.

This is the cheapest price that we have ever seen for the iHome iD48. Back on Cyber Monday, it was reduced to $49 from $99 ($50 discount) and even then, it was a fantastic deal. Of course, now it’s even better, so if you have been in the market for a portable stereo system for your Apple product, then now would be a good time to snag one.

This stereo system only works for: iPhones, iPads and iPods. It also features SRS TruBass circuitry and Reason 8 sound technology for an enhanced auditory experience.

The battery is rechargeable, so you won’t have to worry about buying or looking around for batteries. When the charge is low, you can just plug it in, while continuing to enjoy your music.

If you’re looking to use the iHome iD48 stereo system with an iPad, then you will be happy to know that it has a landscape mode. This means that you could just lay your tablet sideways to watch a movie or perhaps play music videos online.

Personally, I have an iPhone and I’m definitely considering picking up one of these considering the major price drop. Price comparing, I found this same stereo system going for $74.77 at Amazon.ca and approximately $58.54 on eBay.

There are no reviews on Chapters’ site but on Amazon, there are two reviewers that each gave this stereo system 5/5 stars. Both reviewers had a lot to say about it, so here are small snippets of the lengthy reviews:

This is one if the better sounds systems that iHome has put out. It has great sound because it has both active and passive speakers (two of each).

And here’s another:

iHome is a trusted manufacturer so I was not concerned about quality – it is well built and seems sturdy enough to handle transporting, as it is portable and able to work on its rechargeable battery. It is low profile and not as wide as the Bose. Its speakers are smaller.

Keep in mind that the iHome iD48 stereo system is only available online at Chapters Indigo’s site and you won’t be able to get it in-stores.

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Are you one of the lucky ones to have received a candle or two for Christmas? Candles certainly make for popular Christmas gifts, especially when not knowing what to get someone. Instead of throwing away the container once the candle is burnt out, repurpose it into something more useful with these 6 ideas.

1. Organizational Containers

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

The easiest way to upcycle candle jar is by cleaning out the wax to then use them as organizational containers for anything you want. You can place q-tips, cotton balls, nail polish bottles, or anything else. Check out lovekisses99’s YouTube channel for tips on how best to remove the wax.

2. Monogrammed Gold Containers

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Take it a step further by personalizing your candle jar. After completing the first idea of cleaning it out, you can add a monogram as per Allison Anderson‘s instructions. Glue a crystal knobon to the lid for a touch of glamour and to facilitate using the jar. You could even use it as a small jewellery container.

3. Upcycled Candle Jars

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Candle jars often come in very generic packaging filled with the company’s branding and other tacky-looking labels, so  why not repurpose candle jars into even prettier looking candle jars? Visit Lots of DIY for a series of informative pictures on how to make your jars more decorative-looking. There are no formal instructions but all you need to do is spray on a bit of gold paint. Plus, you can write anything you want on the label, like “Hello Winter” instead of “Hello Fall”.

4. Glitter Vases

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Similarly to the upcycled candle jar ideas covered previously, you can also turn your candle jars into cute little glitter vases. The Sweetest Occasion has step-by-step instructions on how to do just that with the help of glitter, modpodge and a couple of other handy tools. Once you’re done, add a few fake flowers for a glam decorative piece.

5. Nail Polish Remover Container

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

Love those nail polish remover containers where all you need to do is dip your finger in to remove the nail polish? These can be quite costly and yet they’re super easy to make. Check out the set of images posted by Gee Collins at Bella Shoot to find out how to create your very own nail polish removing container.

6. Budget Jars

6 Ways To Repurpose Candle Jars

In her article on “How To Chunk Down Your Debt“, Heather Robinson mentioned Gail Vaz-Oxlade’s jar system for better money management. You can read all about it in her article but the general essence of the jar system is that you can’t spend money that you don’t have. Use candle containers to create budgetary jars for either yourself or even your kids as a chore and allowance system as detailed on  With Swallows Wings blog.

(Save 75%) Glade 4 Pack Holiday Candles Only $3 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

(Save 75%) Glade 4 Pack Holiday Candles Only $3 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Walmart has their holiday scented Glade Candles on clearance today. They were $12 earlier this season but now are discounted down to $2.99. With free shipping and no minimum you can have these delivered to your door easy as 1, 2, 3.

The smell of the holidays is still lingering in my house. Luckily, unlike the smell of teenage boys or wet boots, the holidays bring all kinds of good smells into my house. The smells of the holidays are distinct and delicious. Grab this deal and you can either stock up for next year or keep that yummy smell from the holidays going just a little longer. Use that smell to help you beat the January winter blues.

For this deal, that is less than $1 per candle for a candle that is bigger than a votive. Each set includes 4 jar candles that each are in their own glass jar. I much prefer buying smaller candles like these in a glass jar so I do not have to worry about wax dripping everywhere. This size is perfect to put on the bathroom counter next to your sink, for when your bathroom needs freshening. In my house thanks mostly to my husband, the bathroom needs freshened a lot. According to Glade’s website this size candle should burn for about 28 hours.

First up is the Glade Holiday Candle 4-pack in Apple Cinnamon. Apple Cinnamon is a scent that I like having around much longer than the November and December holiday period. I usually start busting out apple cinnamon scented candles and air fresheners in September and can still be found using them up until about February or March. March or so, I start switching to more springtime scents. You still have a good run on these candles before they are really starting to be out of season. Plus Apple Cinnamon is just a pleasing homey scent that makes any house smell lovely.

The other option for sale is the Glade Holiday Candle 4 pack- Mixed. The pack includes one of each of the following.

  • Apple Cinnamon Cheer
  • Sparkling Spruce
  • Gingerbread Jingle
  • Holiday Citrus Medley

Walmart does not list the scents out on their website for the mixed pack but I compared it on Glade’s website yet again. As this is a Walmart exclusive pack, I was able to locate the matching holiday scents based on the icons on the package on Glade’s site. That citrus one might be iffy but it seems to be the best match when comparing it to this year’s selection of holiday scents. If it were me, I would burn the Apple Cinnamon and Citrus Medley candles now and keep the Spruce and Gingerbread for next holiday. It will be just like opening up a Christmas present next holiday season when you unwrap these candles.

Bargainmoosers, how long do you keep the holiday scents burning after the holiday? Do you consider Apple Cinnamon a Christmas scent or an all fall, winter, or even year round scent?

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set – Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Posted by on November 29, 2014 at 9:00 PM

Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Black Friday got you worn out? Catch some much needed z’s on a brand new mattress! The Sealy Posturepedic Diaz queen mattress set is $250 off at Costco. You can get it for just $549.99 instead of its original price of $799.99. Shipping is also absolutely free! This set comes with both the mattress and the box spring.

Normally, I wouldn’t blog about a mattress that can be bought online because it can be difficult to know if you will be happy with it once it arrives but in this case, I couldn’t pass up mentioning this steal of a deal to you Moosers.

For any of you looking for a great deal on a mattress, the Diaz mattress is definitely worth buying. Available in a queen size, it features:

  • 700 coils
  • 1″ Proback stabilizer pad
  • 0.5″ Proback CoreSupport Center with PostureGel memory foam
  • Comfortable quilted layers

According to the description, the coils on this mattress also offer 20% more support than other mattresses as they are reinforced with titanium alloy.

This mattress is a memory foam one but it’s nonetheless of the firm variety, which is the recommendation. Firm mattresses are recommended because they provide better body alignment. If you currently sleep on a soft mattress and experience constant fatigue, headaches and plenty of other unpleasant symptons, it might be worth switching mattresses to a firm one to see if matters improve. If they don’t, do make sure to consult with a doctor of course! Costco Canada: $250 Off Sealy Posturepedic Diaz Queen Mattress Set   Now $550 (+ Free Shipping!)

Looking around, I couldn’t find this exact model of mattress anywhere else. However, I did find the Sealy Posturepedic Aperitivo Eurotep sleep set on sale right now until the end of the Black Friday week-end for $699.99 (reg. $1,399.99) and the description is exactly the same as that of the Diaz one. Both have the same number of coils, same Proback stabilizer pad, same quilting, etc.

As I already mentioned shipping is free, but keep in mind that if when your mattress arrives, you don’t like it for whatever reason, you will need to find a way to transport it back to your nearest Costco store. However, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like it, so no worries there!
