This week's sales..hmmm, summer in the Okanagan is BUSY! There are beaches to visit often, company to hang out with, and so much more! It's hard to fit a little blogging in! In the summer I find I tend to frequent the fresh fruit and veggie stands and use what I have in my freezer(as I already mentioned)as grocery prices are higher at this time of year.
One of my friends writes a fantastic blog on using yummy fruits and veggies to make fantastic things to eat! Check her out here
Save On July 25-31
4lbs blueberries $7.99! This is a great price. We are going to a upick that charges $1.95/lb! I love taking the kids and picking our own berries. To freeze blueberries just wash them, pat dry and lay them out on a cookie sheet. Put them in the freezer for a few hours and then freeze in ziplocs! Enjoy!
Green Grapes are .99/lb
Romaine is .69
McCain's pizzas are $4.99 465g-900g
If you get coupons from the pgbrand sampler, you'll notice there is a coupon for $1.00 off pert plus shampoo. This week it is $1.99 at Save On so you could get a 300ml bottle for .99.

All inclusive vacationing can be a great way to go hassle free! The rule of thumb is $100/day/person is a good deal. So a 7 day vacation with air, accommodations and food, should be around $700/person.
To your left you see the home page of Trip Central.(you can click on it to enlarge it). Use the drop down menu to choose your departure city. I have chosen Calgary as it is the hub, and therefore has some of the best deals.
Once there I clicked on Mexico. Once on this second screen you need to choose how long, meal plan and star rating from the list at the top. The home screen shows you the lowest prices, usually no meals included and all star ratings. I clicked on all meals and 4 stars(probably a good idea to do 4 or more in Mexico). Once I did that you can see on this screen it shows all the places in Mexico to go, plus their prices over a whole year's time. I chose to see what travel would be like in August by clicking on AUG at the top across from the word MEXICO.
This brought me to this screen. Here you can see all the departure dates and the prices. It seems Aug 7th is the best price at $678. So, I click on Peurto Vallarta.
This final screen shows a list of the rooms available. Run of the House means anywhere in the complex. Beachfront is self explanatory. At this point it's a good idea to click on one of the dates to your left and then click on Supplier Site so you can see the complex. We also went on google earth. Ask some friends where they have gone. Google reviews about the resort. Check out Trip Advisor, and talk with the agent who has been there! When I did some research I learned that the beachfront rooms can be so busy that they get run down. When I spoke with the agent she said that the beachfront rooms had just been renovated! When I compared resort to resort, I found that some have one a la carte(restaurant with service)meal per one week stay. This one has unlimited! I also learned from the agent that upon arrival it is a good idea to book all meals( a la carte meals)right away. I also learned that for women anything goes for dress code to the a la carte, but for men....golf shirt or button upon, long pants, and closed toe sandals only! There was no mention of a shuttle from the airport and this particular resort is 28kms from the airport. Again the agent informed me that all shuttles to and from are included. Another thing to look for are the sports that are or are not included. If this is important to you choose a resort that includes them. When you click on the Supplier's sit e you see that this resort has all non motorized sports free. you might also be interested in the programs for kids, check to see what's free. When you go forward with the booking you'll be given the option to purchase different programs for kids. A safe for your valuables(passport, ID, wallet) is usually an extra charge. The agent was able to tell me that it costs $2/day. She also advised me as to how she deals with her valuables while on holiday.

Well, just drive a little up the road and you'll see a new way to get to your fresh fruits and veggies!! Yeah!!

Free Slurpees Today and ING pays a $25 savings bonus
Every year 711 has free slurpees on this seventh month, 11th day! You can have a 7.11oz slurpee if you are one of the first 1000 people today. After many days of 35+ degrees...maybe you NEED one?Speaking of slurpees, I made an interesting discovery. After battling the heat for several days( I love it, just sleeping is a bit challenging!)I thought to defrost some grape juice I had made last fall from our grapes. I added lots of ice and grape juice in the blender and blended it well. It was wonderful, no sugar added!(the kids wanted sugar, but it really was sweet on it's own!).Normally I use the juice to make jam and grape juice, but now I have another option.....now to try grape popsicles!Want to make some money on your savings? ING has a neat offer. Sign up to save $100 per month for 6 months, into your ING account and they will give you a $25 bonus, + interest(don't get too excited about the interest I think it's $2). You can open a TFSA or if you joined back when they had the opening bonus for children's accounts. It doesn't seem like alot but it took me less than 5 minutes to get it going for $27...not bad.If you are interested email me and I can send you a referral link.
