Go Gear Canada: Over 40% Outdoor Research Jackets & Gloves

Go Gear Canada: Over 40% Outdoor Research Jackets & Gloves

If you don’t know Outdoor Research, they are a company that makes being outside their life goal. They make very good quality outdoor clothing, whether it be for skiing, hiking, camping or just being in nature. Outdoor Research items can be pricey because of their amazing quality, so getting 40% off makes it a must-have.

Note that you have to be logged in to see the prices, which just takes entering your email and adding a password, and it is all free. As I do with every sale, I price compare the brand at other stores and I found that these are wildly low prices compared to elsewhere.

Take this men’s Foray jacket with just too many features to list. Go Gear is selling it for $139.99, with a regular price of $250.00 I found it at Outdoor Research (U.S.) for $215, at Altitude Sports for $249.99 and at Amazon.com (U.S) for $149.95.

I found the same type of pricing with this men’s radiant hybrid pullover in glacier abyss. I actually really love the look of this jacket and think it is not only practical, but is a touch sexy. I imagine an outdoorsy-type of guy sitting in a fold-up chair with mussed up hair. But I do have a wild imagination. Either way, you’ll only pay $49.99 and it was $90.

If you are spending over $75, whatever you buy will ship to you for free.

Sears Canada: Craftsman 3-in-1 Gas Push Mower Only $160

Posted by on April 18, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Sears Canada: Craftsman 3 in 1 Gas Push Mower Only $160

If your grass is starting to get long, you might be thinking about a new lawn mower. Sears has a great deal on the Craftsman 3-in-1 gas push mower, which is now only $169.99, was $229.99. Deduct another $10 easily with this coupon code. You’ll get it for only $159.99.

I just sold my house (yay!) and the people moving in are moving from an apartment. When you move from an apartment, you don’t realize all of the items you need for a house, a lawn mower probably being one of the most important and expensive ones. I want to tell my home buyers about this deal! While $60 off isn’t a crazy amount, I wanted to blog this lawn mower because it has really fantastic reviews, which six reviewers each giving it a 5-star rating. So, any savings on a mower as good as this one is a bonus, especially at this time of year.

I have to admit, I had to laugh at the guy who bought the mower for his wife because the last one was too heavy. I hope he didn’t get it as an anniversary or Christmas gift for her.

This mower is very versatile as it allows you to mulch your clippings, bag them or let them go out the side, without having to change anything on the mower.

Shipping will be free on this item as it is over $99.

Shop.ca: Up To 56% Off Nexus Rattan Patio Furniture

Posted by on April 16, 2014 at 8:00 AM

Shop.ca: Up To 56% Off Nexus Rattan Patio Furniture

If you are planning on buying patio furniture, you really need to have a look at the sale at Shop.ca on right now. They have 56% off Nexus Rattan patio furniture. I price compared on other sites and these really are the real deal sale prices.

One of the really nice things about buying patio furniture from Shop.ca is that it will ship free too, which is a nice bonus since it is a large and heavy item that normally might cost quite a bit to ship.

Although this item is not practical for my family, it would be perfect for a family of two and looks amazing. The black rattan with green cushions dining set has a large table with a white tempered glass top and two large chairs with cushions. The entire thing is very durable and weather resistant as well, so you know this piece will last a long time on your deck. The original price is $1515.18, but now is only $662.51. You can also get the same set with white cushions or light grey cushions.

If you are looking for something more conversational, this black rattan set with white cushions has sofas, coffee tables and foot stools. It was $2298.60, now only $1798.60.

Lowes Canada: 11.5% Event For 2 Days Only

Posted by on April 5, 2014 at 9:00 AM

Lowes Canada: 11.5% Event For 2 Days Only

Today and tomorrow only, save the tax in-store or save 11.5% on patio sets, lawn tractors, trailers, exterior stain, ladders and BBQs – everything you need for Spring! Also note that Lowes is offering free parcel shipping on some items. Otherwise, they have free store pickup.

If you are thinking of staining your deck or outdoor wood furniture, now is the time to stock up on stain. While the savings aren’t huge on the stain, any bit of savings helps I think.

Where you will really save during this sale is on higher-priced items like patio furniture. Personally, I am in the market for a new set as my brand new flagstone patio looks quite bare with nothing on it. I’d love to get this allen roth blaney 6-piece outdoor conversation set. It looks so comfortable and is very stylish. Was $1447, now $1280.48, saving you over $150.

Come Spring, you realize all of the things you need to haul away and wonder how you’ll do it. You could mess up the interior of your vehicle, or you could buy yourself a trailer. Lowes has a number of utility trailers, big and small, all at the discounted price, like this carry-on 5ft x 8ft treated lumber trailer with a ramp gate. It was $1179, now $1043.30.

Depending on what province you live in, shopping online might save you the most money. This is because you are getting a discount right on the price of the item, then getting the tax reduced from there because your purchase price is less.

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

Posted by on March 21, 2014 at 8:00 PM

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

With our melting snow comes puddles and rain. And with those ever increasing temperatures comes the desire to be outside, even if it is wet. I laugh at how we always comment what a nice day it is when the sun is shining but the temperature is above 0. It really is time to get outside! But, what can you do outside that is fun on a rainy day?

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

Make some dirt soup. It sounds gross, but it is a great sensory experience! When was the last time you really got your hands and feet dirty? I recently participated in a mud race and had to swim through a pool of mud and it actually felt amazingly good. This isn’t just for kids, but your kids will love it too! Thanks for the idea Kids Activity Blog.

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

How about painting in the rain? You’ll get quite a different effect on your work of art than you would inside the dry house. Try it!  Housing A Forest has a few different rain painting ideas.

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

Lovably Me had the fantastic idea of sailing paper boats down your driveway. What kid or adult wouldn’t have fun building a paper boat, then racing it in a puddle? Too cool.

5 Free Ways To Play In The Rain

Why not measure the rain? Every season brings teachable moments and rain can be one of them. Rainy Day Mum (totally fitting name) has the instructions on building a rain catcher.

How about some mud surfing? I know my boys and my husband would love this idea (I wouldn’t) because they all love a little bit of risk! Let The Children Play definitely has the right idea.

Cabela’s Canada: Berber Sleeping Bag/Liner $69.99 (Save $50)

Posted by on March 19, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Cabelas Canada: Berber Sleeping Bag/Liner $69.99 (Save $50)

Pick up the Cabela’s Outfitter Berber Sleeping Bag/Liner on sale from $119.99 down to $69.99.

This is Cabela’s own brand of sleeping bag. It is made of Berber fleece with a polyester liner. The two-way zipper makes getting in and out a breeze. It comes in Cabela’s Outfitter Camo print and includes a stuff sack to make transportation easier. The bag measures 76″ long by 33″ wide. This is more of a summer bag as the temperature rating is only to about +10°C. The carry weight is 3 lb. 10 oz. so it won’t weigh you down too much.

Here is what one reviewer had to say:

I used this bag during a 4 day camping trip in Central Alberta during the summer. This bag breathes very well and doesn’t feel sticky like plastic lined bags do. It was also reasonably light to pack around. My only complaint is the stuff sack it comes with is not waterproof, which might cause an uncomfortable night if you have to hike to your camping spot in the rain.

Get free shipping to your local Cabela’s store or else shipping depends on how much your item costs and the tier can be viewed here.

Walmart Canada: Steel Fire Pit Only $43 (Was $68)

Posted by on February 21, 2014 at 2:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Steel Fire Pit Only $43 (Was $68)

Think about fires on your back deck, cold beers, marshmallows and good friends. Now think of saving $25 on the cost of a steel fire pit at Walmart, paying only $43.

This item is not huge, which I think is perfect.  You don’t need a raging fire in your backyard, choking out all the sleeping neighbour kids in their bedrooms. I say this because this is what happened to me when one of my neighbours had a giant fire in their backyard, a mere 12 feet from my bedroom and way too close the fence too! Besides that, having a nice, small fire on your porch is a treat. There is something about sitting around a fire to make people calm, open up and have fun.

This one is 30-inches, with an antique bronze finish and steel legs. The porcelain grate to keep the fire in and fingers out is fire-resistant and the poker is also included.

Walmart always offers free shipping, which is a really nice bonus. If you like that kind of a bonus, you need to check out Bargainmoose’s free shipping page, with more stores who offer free shipping with no minimum spends.

Toys R Us Canada: $200 Off Springfree Trampolines

Toys R Us Canada: $200 Off Springfree Trampolines

It’s that time again. The time when you wonder what the kids are going to do outside all spring, summer and fall, because you know it is time for them to get out of the house and play outside. I have the perfect answer. Get them a trampoline. And get it for $200 off.

I bought my kids a trampoline last year even though I heard the usual “they’ll play with it once” moaning and groaning from other people. But, those people were wrong and my kids played with their trampoline every single day and more. Their friends would come over just to play on it. My oldest even plays on it now in the winter, digging the snow off it and rolling around in the snow that he knows hasn’t been soiled by my dog.

Springfree trampolines are said to be the safest of them all. With innovative technology including completely covered springs and a kick-butt enclosure, they say accidents don’t happen on these trampolines. I could not spend the money I wanted to on my trampoline so we got a cheaper version, but I still pine for one of these.

There are four sizes available:

Shipping is going to be steep, but it might be worth it if you don’t have a truck to haul this baby. Also, a few of the trampolines are only available online.

Walmart Canada: Trainor Sports Trampoline Now $248 (Was $358)

Posted by on October 26, 2013 at 8:30 PM

Walmart Canada: Trainor Sports Trampoline Now $248 (Was $358)

Get the Trainor Sports 14′ trampoline and enclosure from Walmart for $110 off, paying only $248.

You might wonder what you’ll do with a trampoline at this time of year, but it really pays to shop ahead because you’ll save about a third of the purchase price of this model. This is the exact trampoline that I have (mine might be the 16′) and we’ve had absolutely no problems with it. The kids use it often and love it. A lot of their friends come over to jump on it with them and even my dog gets into it.

We had planned on buying a really expensive trampoline that was said to be the safest out there, but decided to only spend $400 vs. over $1000 for a smaller one. This one has seemed to do its duty. We don’t use the flash zone because I think that is a wasteful feature, but otherwise, it was easy to assemble and will probably last us at least a few years. If you don’t believe me, read the glowing reviews.

Even though this is a fairly large object, shipping is free!

Lowes Canada: 15% Off All Sheds

Lowes Canada: 15% Off All Sheds

All in-stock sheds, online and in-stores are 15% off right now. This excludes online-only sheds.

With my backyard near completion, one crucial piece of “furniture” is missing and the square of missing grass tells me it is a shed. I’d love to move the lawn mower out of the garage, along with all the kids outdoor toys, the gardening supplies and so much more. I want to stack that shed full!

Lowes has many different styles of sheds in different sizes and price points:

Shipping is about $75 on these sheds (depending where you live). This may seem steep, but unless you have a truck or way of transporting this item to your house, you’d have to pay it whether you shopped online or in-store anyway.

Toys R Us Canada: Outdoor Toys Up To 50% Off

Posted by on October 5, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Toys R Us Canada: Outdoor Toys Up To 50% Off

Toys R Us has the lowest prices of the season sale going on, and the best part of the sale I see is the up to 50% off outdoor toys.

You might wonder why you’d buy outdoor toys when the first snowfall is bound to be soon. However, these large items make great Christmas gifts since there really isn’t another reason to give a large gift in the spring. I guess if your child has a birthday in the spring, that could work, but for me I have summer, fall and winter babies. If they don’t get bikes and the sort at Christmas, I’m basically buying them for no reason at all.

This canopy wagon is an amazing deal. With two contoured seats and seat belts, cup holders for you and the kids and a removable canopy, this is the most deluxe wagon you’ll find for the price. Was $139.99, now $69.87.

Kids love motorized vehicles. My kids don’t have one no matter how much they have begged, because my thought is that they need the exercise more than I do. Still, there have been many times of walking the path by my house where they give up on their bikes or scooters or walking and I end up carrying them and their mode of transportation. I would never have to carry this Mercedes GL (unless you forget to charge the battery, and I’ve seen this personally). Was $219.99, now $179.97. What kid wouldn’t want to go back to school and tell their friends Santa left a Mercedes under the tree?

Shipping is free when you spend over $99, up to a $20 value. These larger items may cost additional shipping charges.

Live Out There Canada: Up to 50% Off Outdoor Gear

Live Out There Canada: Up to 50% Off Outdoor Gear

Live Out There Canada is hosting their semi-annual sale with up to 50% off clothing, footwear, hike and camp gear, and accessories.

I’m not much for camping anymore as there is just nothing like camping with my Dad. It feels really weird camping without him even though I know I am grown up, married, and out on my own. I did like camping when we went though: the smell of the fire, the tent living, the campfire food. It was awesome.

Do you need some camping gear? You can get 30% off The North Face Lynx sleeping bag. It is not rated for very cold weather but it is great for fall camping (down to 4 Celsius). Originally $169.99, it is on sale for $118.99.

An even better discount is this The North Face Alteo 35 women’s backpack, which was $179.99 and is on sale for $90. This kind of backpack is for serious hikers (of which I am not) and it stores enough to invite a few nights overnight in your favourite woods.

A good pair of hiking boots is an absolute must if you are going camping, hiking, or are trying to climb a glacier. Trust me on that last one. These Merrell Chameleon 5 Mid Ventilator Waterproof men’s boots are on sale from $199.99 down to $100. That is a good price for quality hikers and the waterproof part is an added bonus. There is nothing worse than walking in wet socks.

Find all this and more at the Live Out There Canada semi-annual sale. Shipping is always free!

Walmart Canada: Clearance Prices on Tents

Walmart Canada has three tents on clearance which makes them a good price for you to pick up now and use next camping season.

There are three tents to choose from:

  • Ventura 13ft x 9ft Instant Cabin Tent  (10192514) Was $148 | Now $118 (pictured above)
  • Coleman® 6′ x 5′ 2-Person Glow-in-the-Dark Tent  (10191331) Was $34 | Now $30
  • Coleman® 9′x9′ 5-Person Grand Valley Tent  (10071632) Was $85 | Now $64

These tents are three different sizes so you can buy according to your needs. Just ask yourself, how many people am I going to be fitting into this tent? The 9×9 is for a maximum of five people, the 6×5 is for a maximum of two people, and the 13×9 is for a maximum of eight people. I always find those numbers rather ambitious… sure they CAN fit that many people in them but really do you want to be sardines stuffed in a plastic can? I think not.

Enjoy free shipping on all the tents at Walmart Canada.
