London Drugs - $62 Savings


Lately, I've been getting better organized with my coupon stacks and making once a week trips to London Drugs.

This week, I stocked up again on hair products like Fructis and L'Oreal Paris, as well as Live Clean and Vim.

All my coupons were printables, from newspaper inserts and tear pads found in stores. 

I also had $10 in rebates from coupon apps like Checkout 51, Cartsmart and Zweet.

I paid  $17.47, and saved $62 using coupons.

Costco - Nov 24


I not only took pictures of sales and deals this week, but also some Christmas gift ideas that I thought were priced really well.

West 49 - Save 40% on Denim for Boys & Men


If you have skinny kids, you know how hard it is to find pants that fit properly. 


For the last 5 years, West 49 is the only place I can find denim for my teenage boys - without paying an arm & a leg! 

Finding a waist size under 30 is even more difficult, so when we happen upon a great sale, with lots of 28s on the shelf, I stock up!


Right now at West 49, you can get Buy One Get One 50% off, on all men's denim/chinos, as well as boys. The regular price is $39.99 for men's jeans. 

To sweeten the deal, when you spend $100, you get a $20 gift card to spend in January.  

It's an actual gift card too, not a "get $20 off when you spend $50" deal.  

West 49 recently launched a new denim line that I think looks better and is higher quality. 

If you bought 4 pairs of jeans, with the sale and the gift card, your paying $25 each.

Happy Shopping!

Today, use the promo code THURSDAY and get a free movie from Redbox.

Make sure you return it by tomorrow evening so you don't pay any overdue charges. 


Costco Grocery Cart


This week, I didn't buy a lot of items at Costco. I got a few essentials and continued with Christmas stock up.

I mentioned last week that I start to buy Christmas gifts with each shopping trip to spread out the cost and keep Christmas shopping stress free.  I do the same with food ingredients that I may need for Christmas.

When I can find a good sale, I am better off to get it now, than pay more later and waste time trying to find an item that may not be available.


This week the Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Juice is on sale for $8.79 (save $2) for 4 bottles. This is a staple at our Christmas dinner and a nice treat for kids and non-drinkers. This works out to $2.19 a bottle. You would currently pay $5.49 at London Drugs for each bottle.

We go through a lot of blueberries in this house, so I bought the 2kg bag of Kirkland Blueberries for $8.99. This is a little on the high side at $2 a pound, but our produce co-op hasn't had blueberries for a while. I prefer to buy fresh & freeze them myself.

I picked up a pack of our favourite bacon, already cooked. Love this for fast breakfast sandwiches, pasta dishes and BLT's, although this did go up $1, it's still half the price of Maple Leaf in grocery stores.

The large bag of Munchies mix is on sale for $4.99. (save $2). This is a great deal for a big bag, and I like that everyone can find something in this mix that they like. I try to be prepared for weekend snacks, rather then paying extra at a grocery store.

The Spring Mix salad greens are also a great deal at $3.79, I mix this with green leaf lettuce and can get several dinner salads this way. Keep in mind that one bag of ready made salad at the grocery store can be $3-4, and they are about 1/2 the size of this Costco container.

I did buy the Sabra individual hummus again, even though it wasn't on sale. I really love having fast, healthy snacks for my kids to grab. Hummus and veggies are a filling snack, and when I pack crackers in their lunch, they can sub that for a sandwich. This is also a mild tasting hummus, which my youngest daughter really likes. 


I looked at the large containers of hummus and did some price comparing. Maybe it would be cheaper to buy a couple big containers and put it into smaller individual ones at home?

I did the math. I could make my own for .34 cents each using the big containers at $6.99 for two. The small containers I bought, work out to .37 cents each. Not a big enough difference to divide them up myself.

Items I didn't buy:

The Cascade Dish tabs are on sale for $15.99 (save $4), so that's $.14 cents each. I think the Finish Tabs are a better deal and they are still on sale this week at $15.79 (save $8) for 147. The Finish tabs are $.11 cents each.

I am fully stocked on dish tabs from a great Target clearance sale so I didn't get any, but $.10 cents a load is my stock up price for dishwasher detergent.

The Shake 'n Bake pack of 10 is on sale for $6.89. Not a bad price at $.69 cents a serving and great for a quick, cheap meal paired with drumsticks. When we do a coating on our chicken, my family is loving the Hellman's Chicken. I do use the Panko breadcrumbs from Costco though and that makes an excellent, juicy chicken.


Beemaid Creamed Honey is on sale for $12.49 (save $3.50). Honey can be very expensive, especially if you use it in baked goods, instead of sugar. I think this is a good price. We are currently using a big container from a local honey farm, so I didn't buy any.

All current Costco sales are valid until November 23, 2014.

Costco - Nov 17


You know Christmas is getting close when the huge poinsettia's arrive. At $19.99, this is for sure the best deal and if I didn't have a new kitty that loves to chew everything, I would've picked one up!


When you come in the door, there are a couple sales. The Stanley Vacuum bottle 2 QT is on sale for $19.99 (save $7.50)


The HP Office Jet All in One Printer 8620 Pro is also on sale for $189.99 (save $50).

What's In My Grocery Cart - Nov 10, 2014


To see what's on sale at Costco this week, check this post.

This week at Costco I continued with my Christmas shopping while picking up a few needed grocery items.

It's not uncommon for me to pick up groceries for my mom or mom-in-law. Especially if they're watching my kids, so I can shop in peace!

In my cart this week:

Bone In Ham half - for my mom-in-law, who's making us family dinner tonight!


Dixie 12oz cups with lids 100 x 2 packs $11.49 (save $3.50)- one pack is for my mom-in-law and one is for me. We may have male members of our family who make a coffee and then wander the country side with it.  Kiss all your re-usable insulated coffee cups goodbye! This is why we love the Dixie cups! I stock up when they're on sale.

Cuisine Adventures Mini-Quiche $10.99 (save $4) - I really went back and forth on this purchase. Whenever I buy items already prepared, I try to figure out if it would be cheaper for me to make it myself. These work out to $.18 cents  each.  For homemade, I would need eggs, ham, cheese, spinach, apples and phyllo pastry. I know one egg is .16 cents, and mini quiches are fiddly and time consuming compared to just making a large quiche. I also wanted a quick breakfast alternative for the kids that has protein. It's on sale, so I decided to give it a shot.

Raspberries and bananas - I am really loving these raspberries. Nothing compares to our garden raspberries, but these are pretty good for winter berries.  Bananas, didn't get a chance to get to Walmart so at .46 cent a lb - cheap alternative.

Clif Bars 18 pk $15.69 (save $4) - at $.87 cents each, these are a great snack for my teenage boys and they travel well in backpacks. They also don't taste like chalky protein bars. On sale, these aren't much lower then $1 at other grocery stores.

Spices - seasoning salt, paprika and oregano. These are around $4 each. If you use spices in large quantities, this is by far the best place to buy them.

Olivieri 7 Cheese Tortellini $12.49 (save $3.50) - This works out to $4.16 a package. Paired with a $1 jar of Ragu, which I always have stocked, this will be filling lunches for the kids at home from school this week. I also have a long list of projects to get done this week, and I don't want to be stuck in the kitchen!

Ultimate Hair & Body Salon 50 pieces $21.99 - Christmas gift for my daughter - she is loving the  hair chalk thing right now, and one chalk is $3-5 at other stores. This set comes with 12 hair chalks, plus make up and sparkle tattoos pens.


Kirkland Gift Tissue 160 sheets $6.69 - This is a great deal for tissue paper. I like that at least half the pack is not Christmas patterned, so I can use any leftovers for birthday gifts.

Items that I didn't buy:

Finish Dishwasher Detergent - 147 tabs for $15.79 (save $8) - this works out to .11 cents a tab. My stock up price is 10 cents, so I would say this is a good deal. I am fully stocked on these from a Target sale a few months ago, but a great time to stock up if you need them.


Jet Dry Ultra Rinse Agent 946ml  $7.59 (save $3) - while this is a lot cheaper then other stores, (500ml is $9.97 at Walmart), I have used vinegar in my dishwasher for years. 

These prices are effective until November 16, 2014.

I you want to know what I always buy and never buy at Costco and how I determine a good deal, see this blog post.


Costco Sales and Deals for Week of Nov. 10, 2014


The Christmas season is in full gear at Costco, with lots of sales on toys, appetizers and anything needed for entertaining.

I like to pick up gifts and Christmas items every week, as I'm doing my regular shopping. This makes the season much more relaxed and I can enjoy time with friends and family, instead of rushing to different stores at the last minute. Shopping well ahead of the rush also saves you money as you have more time to carefully consider your purchases and find the best price.


Another great deal this week on Lego friends. This time it's the Dolphin Cruiser and Sunshine Ranch for $67.99. These are $90 at Walmart and Toys R Us.

I also discovered a clearance section in electronics for CDs, Xbox, Nintendo and  PS3 games. In the boys section there was a packed rack of gym shorts and tops marked as low as $2.69.



In the shoe department, there is a selection of canvas shoes for $5.89. In girls clothes, I found various items and white or black sweaters with sparkly trim reduced to $11.89. These would be perfect for sleeveless Christmas dresses.



Continuing from last week, lots of men's t-shirts by Merona and Fruit of the Loom. 3 pack of Merona are $4.50 and 7 pack of Hanes are $5.63 down from $18.79.

The women's  department has an endcap with clearance panties. Packs of Fruit of the Loom are 50% off at $5.79, and lace panties are $1.50 each.


Also new this week, I found these pink stickers on yogurt close to expiry. Make sure if you purchase them, that your cashier rings in the $1 discount.

The receipt coupon this week is 25% off all holiday lights - save this for a good sale or use it this week on the Phillips incandescent lights and pay only $6.75!

Campbell's, Scottie's & Purex Deals at Superstore This Week

One of the ways to keep your weekly shop easy & low in cost, is to stock up when you find the lowest price.

Now that I've been shopping this way for a couple years, there are weeks I can spend under $50 to get our weekly groceries like produce & milk. This also saves me time when my list is short.

This week is a great time to stock up on laundry soap, tissues and canned soup at Superstore.

Here's how: 


Grab this Purex coupon on the board in the front entrance at Superstore and save $4.40 off a 6.22L. This brings the price to less then $10 for 135 loads or $0.07 cents a load.

I consider anything lower then $.10 cents a great price. I have used this brand in my HE washer and find it cleans just as well as any other higher price detergent. I also like that it doesn't have a strong scent.

As I blogged earlier, we stock up for cold season, & tissues are something I won't pay more then $.75 cents a box for. Again, grab the Scotties coupon on the coupon board and pay $13.48 for 18 boxes, or $.75 cents a box.


If you use a lot of soups for cooking or sauces, the cases of Campbell's soups are also a stock up price. Get the $2.50 coupon on the board and pay $5.89 a case or $.49 cents a can on mushroom, tomato, chicken noodle or vegetable soup.


These coupons are valid until closing on November 6th at Superstore. 

Happy Shopping!
