Summer is half finished and I have not mentioned most of my deals since I have had an extremely busy schedule with 3 softball leagues and house work! I will try to remember as much as I can. Last weekend was no tax event for most items at Superstore also known as the Real Canadian Superstore. It usually applies to electronics and housewares including bbq accessories. I was able to buy a cast iron reversible griddle for only $12 regularly $40! This is handy for camping as I brought my portable bbq but it was very cumbersome. With this griddle I can use my portable camping stove. You can flip it over and it is a grill also!
Costco is one of my go to places as everyone should know by now. I was able to find on clearance (anything ending in 97 cents) a self inflating mattress pad for camping for only $29.97! Regularly priced at $45, it sells for $65 US on Amazon.com and has a rating of 4.5 out of 5 from 95 customer reviews. Unfortunately, when I tried to buy another one the next day, they were all sold out! Remember if you find an amazing deal at Costco buy it and maybe even a second one as you never know if you will ever see that price again. You can always return it later on so you don’t have to worry.
Larry the Liquidator is the outlet by my house in Bradford. They have 15% off the last Monday of each month if you pay by cash. I bought a bamboo pillow that was king size since it was the same size as the queen size for only $15 regularly $20! Del Monte tetra paks of guava, mangosteen with golden kiwi juice were only $1 also which is very tasty and different.
The LCBO sometimes clears out discontinued items so I was able to buy Bols mango liquor for 52% and when I paid at the cash got an extra 20%! It only came out to $7 for a bottle that normally costs $19!
I never got to spend the $10 gift certificate when I replaced my Eddie Bauer knapsack for free so I went to the Vaughan Mills Eddie Bauer and bought another pair of jeans for $1.30 since they were $9.99!
During the Canada Day Long Weekend, Tanger Outlet in Cookstown was giving away a $10 gift card by going to the shoppers services office and showing them their ad. I went there and coincidentally, Bath and Body Works and White Barn both opened that weekend. They had a coupon that if you buy $15 you get an item for free worth up to $15! I was able to buy 4 3 wick candles on clearance for $10 regularly $24 and got a small candle and a candle stand for free! I also used the $10 free gift card too so everything was only $33.90 but worth about $73! Basically it is half price!
Princess Auto is a great store for tools and I was able to buy a garden pick for $21.99 regularly $40. The handle is rubber instead of wood which is lighter. I also bought a welder’s blanket for $14.99 versus $25 for my smoker so I can use it to cover in the winter. Actually, last weekend when it was raining, I covered my smoker with the blanket and it helped to insulate it a little. I did lose some heat but not a lot. Some avid smokers, actually use their smoker all year round including in the winter and use the blanket to retain the heat of the smoker.
Ren’s Pet Depot in Aurora is a new pet store and for the grand opening week, you can spin the wheel and win free items. I won cat food as well as my uncle. I also got coupons to save $5 on a minimum purchase of $30 or more.
Zehr’s had a great clearance item and I found it randomly. They had extra lean ground beef on sale for $3.99/lb and since they had too much, it was further reduced to $1.99/lb. I bought 4 packages and froze them. I made homemade hamburgers with one package for camping and everyone loved it so much that there were no leftovers except half a bun! One of the girls said she will not buy frozen burgers anymore. When you make anything fresh it just seems to taste so much better with less preservatives.
That is all that I can remember right now but as you can see I did well again. Hopefully I am able to report more often in the future and share my deals with everyone.
