Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 29, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Up to 50% Off Minnie Playsets Now $10 to $15 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada’s toy section is ripe with deals. Pick up some Minnie Mouse themed playsets for up to 50% off their original price with free shipping.

The first toy set is super cute and quantities are already limited. Purchase Minnie’s Pet Bowtique Playset that was $19.97 and is now only $10. The set comes with Minnie, Pluto, and Figaro figures. Minnie and pets can play in the pet grooming partner complete with cash register table, food display shelf, a bathtub, and a groomer’s table.

Minnie needs a way to get around so pick up Minnie’s Limousine that was $19.97, and is now just $10. The pimped limousine has a pool in the back! The set comes with a Minnie figure, her limo, a suitcase, and what looks to be a towel.

While not quite 50% off, I do like Minnie Resort Paw Pack. This pack was $17.97 and is now $10. The pack comes with a Minnie beach figure, two water pets, and tons of beach accessories. One reviewer said:

My granddaughter loves Mini Mouse and she really loves the swim set and the bathing suits for Mini she plays with them at our house every time she comes.

Minnie’s Bike Ride was $29.94 but is now $15. The bike is designed so Fargo can sit in the back while Minnie sits on the front. The cat is included, as well as a helmet for Minnie. One reviewer said:

Christmas gift and my niece loved it! One of her favourite new toys.

All the playsets come with a Minnie doll, which some reviewers found the only downside of all the playsets. One reviewer suggested that the pets and accessories should come separately as her daughter already has four Minnie dolls! If your child wants another character to play with, the purchase the Tea party with Daisy Bowtique that was $24.97 and is now $15. Sure, you still get a Minnie doll, but the set also comes with Daisy.

Lastly, Minnie’s Fashion Ride comes with the cat, a motorcycle, and a change of clothing. There are 10 pieces in all to play with. This set was $24.97 and is now $15.

The best toys are those that work with other toys or toy sets. Since all of these Minnie themed toys are on sale, you can pick up a couple. I think the beach one and the grooming parlour would be my favourite ones, and then I would add on the Daisy set.

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 27, 2015 at 10:52 AM

Walmart Canada: 75% Off Hugo TranSport Chair & Walker *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has discounted the Hugo Folding Walker from $113.47 down to $28. The Hugo TranSport Chair is also on sale from $199.97 down to $50. Both of these items come with free shipping to your home.

Both of these are very heavily discounted – so much so that I am surprised they are still in stock. The walker is lightweight (6 lb) and folds up flat for storage so it is never in the way. Push a button on the unit to make the walker fold. The walker includes side storage bags and a pack of 5″ walker wheels for easier gliding. The adjustable height makes the walker more versatile. The Hugo Walker can handle up to 300lbs of weight.

If you have an elderly parent or grandparent – this can be very useful. My mother always kept a walker out at our place for my grandmother. When she came to stay, she didn’t need to pack her big walker into the car. Rather, she could use the one we had at the house for her.

Wheelchairs are really expensive, so if you need one buy this Hugo! The Hugo TranSport Chair is also quite light – weighing in at only 16 lbs. Like the walker, the wheelchair folds up so you can transport it and store it easily. The padded upholstery provides some comfort and there are built-in compartments for putting a few valuables – or a snack bar. Seat belt, rear brakes, and removable footrests are included. There is a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs. Both the walker and the wheel chair assemble without tools.

I may be young but there are times in my life I wish I had a walker or a wheelchair. That time I tore a ligament in my foot and could not walk for two weeks – that would have been a nice time to have a walker. That time my friend and I collided while skating (I fell on top of him because he stopped suddenly) and he broke his ankle – that would have been a nice time to have a walker, or better yet a wheelchair. Honestly, crutches suck.

I am not sure how long these items will stay in stock, as they are 75% off and quite valuable for anyone who is elderly, has health conditions, or is accident-prone. Pick one up while you can.

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:45 PM

Walmart Canada: Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack Was $35 | Now $17 (EXPIRED)

I am a bit obsessed with Monster High dolls – I will admit it. I constantly monitor their sales on Walmart! This Monster High Inner Monster Deluxe Pack – Shivering Sad, Eek Excited, Hauntingly Happy is on sale from $34.97 down to just $17 with free shipping.

Okay, this pack is the ultimate cool Monster High pack for real fans of monsters. The doll comes with three different faceplates plus her usual face. The faceplates fit over her face to give her different – really awesome – designs and expressions. Press down on her brain, and her eyes change as well. I really like the evil looking eyes. Her body comes with two different torsos. One is the ‘normal’ monster high torso and the other is the one where you can stick in different monster organs and then snap the plastic cover shut.

She also comes with a bunch of accessories including two different outfits and different hairpieces. Her journal has blank pages so you can make your own monster story. Overall, she is one cool doll! You can even mix and match her pieces with other Inner Monster dolls. I have one from the Inner Monster collection – and I just love her face plate and wings. It would be fun to interchange doll parts, clothing, hair, and more.

I tried price comparing this set, but it is sold out everywhere else. I did find it from a secondary seller on Amazon for $99.95 plus shipping (ouch). A regular Inner Monster doll pack retails for $29.99 on Sears Canada (not the deluxe), and the best deals on eBay.ca start at $34 for the pack plus shipping.

I found some reviews online. Reviewers tended to be very impressed with the deluxe pack. The many accessories for the doll was their favourite part. Some reviewers said that this doll is best for those who are not planning to collect all the dolls. The Inner Monster deluxe pack becomes three dolls in one with the many different accessories you can use to customize her. Overall, the doll plus accessories is a great buy for only $17.

If you are in the market for other Monster High dolls, check out the MONSTER HIGH – GHOUL SPIRIT DOLL for only $14.97. Frankie and Spectra are still available. Monster High Creepateria Cleo de Nile Doll is also on sale for $14.97.

Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Were $30 | Now $15 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Were $30 | Now $15 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca (EXPIRED)

Any little boy will enjoy the figures included in this Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Set. Walmart Canada has this set on sale from $30 down to just $15, and you won’t be disappointed. Help Batman and Superman take down the Killer Croc as a tag-team. You’ll even get free shipping from Walmart.ca.

Nothing sounds scarier than a mutant crocodile! This mutated crocodile known as Killer Croc has attack claws that activate when you squeeze his legs. Fortunately enough, Killer Croc is no match for Batman and Superman, especially when they work together. Use the power of these two well known super heroes to defeat the mutated crocodile with the necessary tools that are included. This set would have normally cost you $30, but is now half price at just $15. 

This set is best suited for ages four and up, since there are some small parts. The items included in this Batman Killer Croc Takedown Figures Set are:

  • Batman figure
  • Superman figure
  • Killer Croc figure
  • trap claw accessory
  • capture net accessory

What means will you use to capture the Killer Croc for good? This set is great even if you have two boys, since they won’t fight over who gets to be the good guy. If you’re prepared for a fierce battle and for endless hours of play – then this is a toy you should add to your cart, and pronto. You will want to snag this deal as quick as you can, since the stock is already limited online and who knows how quickly this feature set could sell out. This set compares at much higher prices at other retailers. For example. Amazon.ca has this set on sale for $49.98.

The reviews on the Walmart Canada website for this product look pretty decent. One mom complains that the paint doesn’t have the best detail, but her son doesn’t mind. Other parents say that this set exceeded their expectations especially considering how low the sale price is. It truly is a great value for three full sized action figures. Each action figure is 6″ tall. I know my son would love to play with these even at his age, but I would be worried about him swallowing an arm or something haha.

Walmart.ca also offers free shipping on all orders, no matter how much or how little you spend. That means the only additional cost you will have to worry about is taxes. Let’s just hope that your boys don’t capture the family hamster or cat in the net or claw.

Walmart Canada: Interactive Mike the Knight Figure Was $25 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 25, 2015 at 1:28 PM

Walmart Canada: Interactive Mike the Knight Figure Was $25 | Now $10 & Free Shipping

This Interactive Mike the Knight Figure is on sale from $24.97 down to $10, at Walmart Canada. All orders from Walmart Canada receive free shipping.

Price comparing this toy was nearly impossible. Toys R Us, Amazon Canada, and Sears Canada do not carry the toy. I did find the toy in the USA at Amazon.com. There it had an original retail price of $20 and was on sale for $12.25 US = $15.35 CA. While this is hardly a fair comparison (shipping and duty would come into play), it does give you some context.

Mike the Knight is pretty popular among young kids (about two to five years old) right now. This Mike the Knight Figure talks to your child so they can hear popular sounds and phrases from the show. This little knight in training is sure to please your young one while they play. As one reviewer said:

I bought it for my son birthday ( 3years) who loves mike the knight the toy has many sounds , of the tv show, he takes him everywhere great toy

This toy is versatile. Not only does it speak, but Mike the Knight has articulated shoulder joints and can pivot at the waist. The toy includes a sword and shield for pretend play. Activate Mike by pressing the shield button on his chest. Hoe comes with over 20 sounds and phrases. Some of them your child will know from the show, like “It’s time to be a knight and do it right!” Other phrases encourage your child, like “You would make a great knight!”

This toy is for ages two and up but age often depends on development stage so you are always the best judge as to whether your child is ready for this sort of toy.

I think this is a great toy for a great price! It satisfies tactile and auditory play while still being great for playing out stories with the sword and shield. While this is not the most articulated toy, it has enough movement to satisfy young customers.

Walmart Canada: Beggin’ Strips Were $2.74 | Now $1 & Free Shipping (HOT… QUICK!) (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada: Beggin Strips Were $2.74 | Now $1 & Free Shipping (HOT... QUICK!) (EXPIRED)

Got a dog? You might want to check out Walmart’s hot deal today that is sure to sell out. Get Purina Beggin’ Strips for only one dollar and they’ll ship for free, with a regular price of $2.74.

I’ve got a dog and she likes treats. Unfortunately for her, she doesn’t get too many as she seems to be gaining weight a little too much this winter (her and me both). I instead like to give her smoked bones I get from the butcher as a treat. But, if you like to give your dog treats, you can’t go wrong with these treats.

If you don’t have a dog, you could consider getting these to give as a donation to an animal shelter or rescue organization. Even the food bank would appreciate them. Sometimes I like to buy items like this when they are discounted this heavily so I can give them away to those in need.

I don’t assume these will last long, so don’t delay and get them now before they sell out.

Lalaloopsy Workshop Doll Double Pack Was $29 | Now $18 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 6:00 PM

Lalaloopsy Workshop Doll Double Pack Was $29 | Now $18 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Sometimes I find parents are Lala-loopy to buy full priced toys. As a frugal parent, I am constantly trying to find my son’s favourite toys at a discounted price. If your daughter loves Lalaloopsy dolls, then you’re in luck. Walmart Canada has a clearance sale on the Lalaloopsy Workshop Doll Double Pack right now. Instead of paying $29, you will pay just $18 which is the lowest price around. You will even get free shipping.

The Lalaloopsy Workshop Doll Double Pack comes with two dolls. You can choose from a variety of options, including:

  •  Ballerina & Cowgirl
  • Bunny & Nerd
  • Princess & Clown

All of the choices available are just $18 instead of $29, so you won’t miss out on the discounts that’s for sure. Unfortunately the Mermaid & Pirate set are sold out, which seems to be one of the more popular Lalaloopsy Double Pack options. You can add a few of these packs to your cart, or just one if you wish. Either way you will receive free shipping since Walmart.ca offers that with no minimum purchase. The next best price I was able to find on these Lalaloopsy Double Packs was at Amazon.ca. Amazon Canada has the Clown & Ballerina doll set for just $22, but all of the other packs still retail for $28+ everywhere else. You also won’t get free shipping at Amazon unless you spend over $25.

If you do purchase more than one set of these adorable Lalaloopsy dolls, you’ll be happy to know that you can mix and match all of their expressions, hair, clothing and even accessories. You can create your very own unique Lalaloopsy doll. I would personally go for the Ballerina & Cowgirl pack, since I have horses. Although I would love to put the Nerd’s glasses and Pirate’s hair on the Cowgirl to make her look a little more like myself as a child.

Each Lalaloopsy Double Pack from Walmart.ca includes the following items:

  • 2 heads
  • 2 torsos
  • arms
  • legs
  • 2 hair styles
  • clothing
  • accessories

Because of all of the small parts,  I wouldn’t suggest these dolls for kids under the age of 3. You might also find yourself purchasing single packs in the future, as the small fashion accessories may easily go missing. Your kids will love to take the dolls apart and put them back together though. I don’t see any reviews for this product on Walmart Canada’s website, but the Amazon Canada reviews seem very positive. I don’t think you will be let down with this product.

Walmart Canada: Clearance On Building Block Toys

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 3:00 PM

Walmart Canada: Clearance On Building Block Toys

Walmart Canada has restocked their clearance section with fierce deals on building block brands like LEGO, Duplo, and Mega Bloks. Receive free shipping on all orders.

First, my favourite set of the sale has to be LEGO Lord of the Rings and Hobbit – The Wizard Battle on sale from $15.96 down to $10. Wage war between Gandalf the Grey and Saruman the White. Turn the tables on Saruman so that Gandalf wins this time. Weapons, two figures, and the throne room will keep you busy.

While not quite for building, this LEGO Legends of Chima Laval Minifigure Clock is a fantastic deal. Originally $24.94, the clock is on sale for $15. If your child is a big fan of LEGO, give them a LEGO themed clock to teach them time.

For a sweet little set perfect to keep or to give, pick up this LEGO Duplo Creative Play – All-in-One-Gift-Set (10570) that was $17.86 and is now $15. The same set is $19.99 at Toys R Us right now. This 30-piece set includes a cat and a dog.

There are several other Duplo sets on sale that you can mix and match with the Creative Play set above. Pick up the LEGO DUPLO Creative Play – Toddler Build and Boat Fun (10567), which was $19.86, for only $15 right now. In this set, your child can collect a red rabbit and a cute little brown bear.

This Mega Bloks – First Builders – Build N’ Learn Table (8233) is an absolute must buy. The set was $25 and is now $20. It includes 75 blocks and the table to play on as well. The original price on this set is quite misleading as Amazon Canada currently sells the set for $44.95. Even on sale at Toys R Us, the set is still $34.97. Add on the Mega Bloks First Builders – ABC Spell School Bus (81254) that was $15.93 and is now $10.

While I am not familiar with this brand, the Kre-O Cityville Marina Madness Set looks to be an excellent deal. Originally $29.94, the set is on sale for $20. Amazon Canada has the same set for $46.47 right now from a marketplace seller. I like the giant shark that comes with the set.

The LEGO suitcases look like a fun addition to your current sets. Pick up the LEGO Juniors – House Suitcase (10660) or the LEGO Juniors – Vehicle Suitcase (10659) during this clearance sale. Originally $29.96, the suitcases are each $20.

There are plenty more fun building sets for sale right now. Stick is very limited and selling out quickly.

Walmart Canada: Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub Only $1 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 22, 2015 at 1:40 PM

Walmart Canada: Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub Only $1 & Free Shipping *HOT* (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has some really beautiful deals in their clearance section. I ran across a bottle of Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub on sale from $8.97 down to $1 with free shipping!

I love deals like this – who ever thought there would be dollar deals online with free shipping? It must cost Walmart Canada a small fortune in shipping costs – but buyers really get to profit from such deals. The Olay Skin Smoothing Cream Scrub comes in a 177 ml bottle. It is an oil free formula designed to smooth your skin – leaving it brightened and clean.

Olay has a description for the cream on their website:

A conditioning beta-hydroxy formula with microbeads cleanses skin deeply while gently exfoliating to rejuvenate skin, leaving it radiant and noticeably smooth.

I have not used Olay products ever, but my Mom uses them. I might buy this and mail it away to my Mom as a small surprise. I do not know about you, but I love receiving random gifts in the mail that I really did not expect.

Now, there are a few other deals I would be remiss not to mention. This L’Oréal Hair Expertise Re-Nutrition is on sale from $8.96 down to $2 with free shipping. This shampoo is formulated with Royal Jelly and is great for restoring moisture and shine to your hair.

I also found this box of Nice’n’Easy Perfect 10 hair dye on sale from $13.96 down to $2 in lightest cool brown. The other colour still available is full price. I have never died my hair, but I figure $2 is a great price if you are experimenting with a new colour. Light brown looks really good on many different skin tones. I have dark, sandy blond hair that looks brown when wet.

I really like deals that are so cheap it seems a crime not to purchase them. While the hair dye might not be for everyone, almost anyone (male or female) can use the smoothing skin scrub and the shampoo. Pick up a few bottles for yourself or send a few to family members in need. You could even buy a bunch to donate to your local shelter. Shampoo would especially be popular.

T-fal Filtra ONE Deep Fryer Was $58.77 Now $39.88 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca! (QUICK)

Posted by on March 20, 2015 at 5:43 AM

T fal Filtra ONE Deep Fryer Was $58.77 Now $39.88 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca! (QUICK)

Need some more appliances to fill up your kitchen cupboards? If you’re in the market for a deep fat fryer, there’s a very good price today from Walmart Canada on this T-fal Filtra ONE Deep Fryer. It was $58.77 and it’s now down to only $39.88 with free shipping to most locations!

While this item is in stock at Walmart Canada just now, there’s no guarantee that this stock will last for long. If you would like to buy this deep fat fryer, I suggest you buy it now and don’t wait.

Price Compare!

I did a quick price comparison of the T-fal Filtra ONE Deep Fryer and it leads me to believe that the price on Walmart is excellent. Elsewhere, this very same model is $70 @ Amazon (albeit in the stainless steel finish), $80 @ Home Hardware, $140 @ Canadian Tire (stainless steel too). We previously saw this item drop to $45 in this blog post last year, so $39.88 is an even lower price point now.

Reviews!

The reviews of this particular model on Walmart do seem promising though, with 20 reviewers giving it an average score of 4.5 stars out of 5. The one thing to keep in mind is that this deep fat fryer has a fixed bowl – you cannot take that out when cleaning and changing the oil. It’s a drawback, but to be expected in an item at as low a price point as this.

Personally, I can’t really say an awful lot about this deep fat fryer as I haven’t actually used one in many years, myself. I don’t really eat deep fried food unless it’s a treat from the take-out. I certainly don’t really cook any at home. I find that the smell is part of the issue for me – when deep frying, the oily smell fills the whole house. I have an aunt in Australia who uses a deep fryer, but she actually uses it in her back yard! I thought this was funny… but it means the smell doesn’t go through her house.

Walmart: Playgo Toy Wagon Set Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 5:36 PM

Walmart: Playgo Toy Wagon Set Was $50 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Walmart Canada has a sweet little deal on the 34-piece Toy Wagon Set by Playgo (Kid Connection). Originally $50, this wagon and included toys is on sale for $30 with free shipping.

I could only find this toy set (in Canada) at Sears.ca, where it currently retails for $49.99 plus shipping. At Walmart, you save the shipping charges and get $20 off that price.  There are 34 pieces in the set. Rather than throwing them in your child’s regular toy box, they all will store inside the toy wagon. Your child can then use the toy wagon to transport these toys (and other toys) from room to room. I like the toy wagon because it makes cleanup before bed simple. Just have your child pick up all their toys and put them in the wagon. Then they can pull the wagon to their room and put the toys away.

The full set includes:

  • 9 chunky blocks
  • 3-piece multi-activity action blocks
  • 10 stacking and nesting cups
  • 6-piece nesting and stacking water or bath toys
  • 1 wind-up musical TV
  • 5-piece shape sorters
  • 1 wagon and locking lid

The lid can be used with some of the blocks and shapes. Stick the blocks onto the nubs on the lid to give your building a solid foundation. all the pieces are made of plastic.

The set is designed for children ages 18 months and up. Depending on your child’s progress, this might be appropriate for slightly younger children. The yellow wagon has a red handle so children can drag it all over the place.

I cannot think of a better set of versatile toys for $30. At this price, you are paying less than $1 per toy (34-toy set). I also think this set makes an excellent gift for a baby shower – especially for first time mothers. While the toys cannot be used immediately, they will appreciate them within a couple years.

Despite the size of the wagon filled with toys, you still receive free shipping from Walmart Canada. That is one of my favourite things about Walmart deals – you never have to worry about extra charges for shipping.

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 11:02 AM

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Baby, baby, baby oooh… grab some cheap baby clothes right now at Walmart but sizes are limited and are going fast. Select George onesies, pants and shirts are on clearance for just $2, from a regular price of $4 or more. As always, shipping is absolutely free.

My baby girl is growing so fast… *cries*. It’s great and it’s not but with regards to the latter, it’s not so great when her clothing suddenly stopping fitting her. I’m not a fan of overpaying for clothes, so clearances like these are just what I look for.

A bit of virtual digging is required for this clearance offer because sizes are limited but here’s an overview of the clothes that I picked up for my little girl:

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

I got the George Little Diva onesie, blue leggings, pink jogging pants and the greige ruffle runic — all for a grand total of $8 before tax. These purchases would have otherwise cost me $16 and even more with tax if they had been regularly-priced.

If your baby is under a year old or perhaps not even born yet, I suggest that you think ahead and maybe get a couple of sizes for them to grown into. Keep in mind the changing weather though as your little one wouldn’t necessarily need a long-sleeved top during the summer months. Plus, don’t forget that most babies need much bigger pants for their age as these tend to be on the shorter side.

For those of you with little boys, hurry up and get the “Girls Dig Me” shirt as it’s just too cute! It’s only available for sizes of up to 6 months and is also just $2!

Having to spend a set amount of money just to qualify for free shipping at most stores isn’t something I particularly enjoy and end up not buying anything anyways, so, the best part about clearances like these at Walmart is definitely the free shipping offer. You could pick up just one pair of pants or just one onesie for $2 and still have it shipped straight to your door at no extra cost.

Walmart: Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp Was $31 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 12, 2015 at 4:24 PM

Walmart: Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp Was $31 | Now $15 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Walmart Canada has a great deal on a basic house lamp. The Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp was $30.98 and is now only $15 with free shipping. There are limited quantities available!

This is a nice little white lamp that should match with almost any decor. Pick up matching lamps for your end tables or even use a few of these to brighten up your living room. For some reason, houses are built with hardly any built in lights in the living room. Case and point: my own living room has no lights. While it takes up more space than the dining room and kitchen combined, it has no built in light fixtures. Neither does the bedroom, which i found rather odd. In both rooms I am completely dependent upon lamps.

Given that I do not exactly own a lot of lamps, it is often very dark in both rooms once the sun sets. I wanted to buy two lamps for the bedroom, but my budget was around $40. Thankfully I found a couple nice lamps used, but I could not find decent quality lamps for that budget. I looked at some of the cheaper models on Walmart, but they mainly have 1/5 star reviews. That did not seem promising. While this Hometrends Ceramic Accent Lamp does not have any reviews, it is from a well-known homeware company. In addition, the original price was just over $30. While not always, original price is often an indicator of quality.

There is limited stock online. You can purchase this online and receive free shipping to your door. If you are heading to Walmart Canada, check to see if your local store has any stock left. Out of my closest four stores, two are already down to limited stock on this lamp.

Whether it is for a children’s bedroom, master bedroom, living room, or study… this is a nice and inexpensive lamp. The white ceramic and lampshade will match with any other decor your might have. Indeed, these accent lamps will melt into the background until they are needed.

Walmart Canada: 50% Off Tim McGraw & David Beckham Cologne – Now $10 to $12.50

Walmart Canada: 50% Off Tim McGraw & David Beckham Cologne   Now $10 to $12.50

Are you looking for a little something special for your man? Perhaps you are a man who likes to smell yummy but does not like to spend a lot of money on cologne. Right now, Amazon has discounted two colognes for men. SOUL2SOUL Vintage Tim McGraw was $20.97 and is now $10.50. You can also score a bottle of David Beckham the Essence Spray that was $24.97, is now $12.50. All orders come with free shipping.

Both of these bottles hold 30ml of cologne. I prefer smaller bottles of cologne and other perfumes, as I like to change scents often. If you purchase a large 100 ml bottle, then you are stuck with the same sent for years.

SOUL2SOUL Vintage Tim McGraw

Designed to celebrate the American Love Story epitomized by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, this fragrance features top notes of mandarin, ginger root, and lavender. Mid notes include cardamom, orange flower, and cinnamon with dry notes of cedar leaf, cashmeran, and tonka bean. I have never had the pleasure of smelling this cologne, but I love lavender, cinnamon, and cedar.

Most reviews seem to like the cologne but there are a few complaints that it does not last long enough. This reviewer said:

I love All of Tim McGraw fragrances. This one is just as great as all of the others. Each have a different smell like no other fragrance for men.

David Beckham The Essence

I am sure we all know David Beckham, and have appreciated his… talent. This perfume captures the essence of Beckham with top notes of grapefruit, violet leaves, and lavender. Mid notes include pineapple, apple, and cardamom. The base notes of this cologne are similar to Tim McGraw’s, with tonka bean, cashmeran, and patchouli. One reviewer on Fragrantica said:

Definitely one of the nicer citruses. The violet gives a lovely clean edge to the smell. The Essence is great value. An excellent and refreshing clean citrus.

I could not find these bottles of cologne (30 ml) anywhere else in Canada. You could order in from the USA, but shipping and duties becomes an issue. For the price, I am pleased with this deal. These colognes are also on clearance at my local store… but all three of the closest locations to be are already out of stock.

Limited quantities available online.

Take 50% Off Marvel The Amazing Spider Man 2 Backpack Only $7 & Free Shipping @ Walmart.ca

Is your little boy obsessed with Spider-Man? Right now you can shop at Walmart.ca and take 50% off the Marvel’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Backpack, which leaves you paying just $7. Walmart Canada offers free shipping on all online purchases as well.

Spider-man, Spider-man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, wears a backpack that’s clearance priced. Look out! Here comes the Spider-man. You will be able to hum that theme song in your head as your child strides around with this backpack in tow. This Marvel Backpack would have normally cost you $14, but while quantities last you can shop at Walmart.ca and pay just $7.

This Marvel The Amazing Spider-man 2 backpack from Walmart will be great for occasional use or daily use, since it is constructed of 600D material. Since Spider-man seems to be one of the favourite Marvel characters, I am sure any little boy will love this backpack. This backpack can even be carried around by Dad, since the straps are super adjustable. The shoulder straps, handle and back are padded to ensure comfort for extended periods of time.

This Marvel The Amazing Spider-man 2 backpack has a few good reviews and a few bad reviews as well, but for $7 I don’t think you can go wrong. Some of the poor reviews state that the backpack’s handles were not as pictured. Here is one of the good reviews from Walmart.ca:

My son loves this Marvel The Amazing Spider-man 2 backpack, but he mostly enjoys the “3D design. This backpack is well made for the price especially if you get it on sale. Both of my sons love it, it is very unique and cool.

If you have a little girl, you may prefer the Disney Fairies Backpack for just $7 that I had previously blogged about. This is the same backpack, except instead of Spider-man you can enjoy the adorable Tinkerbell and more. If you are young at heart like I am, you may even enjoy these bags for yourself.

You may be disappointed to hear that this backpack is only available at Walmart.ca, but don’t fret. You will get free shipping on all orders big and small from Walmart Canada online,  even if you spend just $7.
