So, I have had people ask me why I don't promote the points stuff more. Every where you turn you get points for shopping. Save on more points, Superstore points, Shopper's Optimum points, and lots more! So, is it worth it? Well, first of all if you are shopping there anyway and it doesn't cost to join it can be beneficial to you.

So, why does the store do it?

They do it because they KNOW you will be tempted to buy things just because of the points you will get. Things you might not normally buy, things that aren't on sale. So, we must count the cost. How many Shopper's Optimum Points do you really get? Normally you get 10 points for every $1. This is 1cent.

This Saturday they will give you 20X the points or 200 points per $1, that is equal to .25 cents for every $1 you spend this Saturday. Now the stipulation is you have to buy $50 in order to get the 20X points. $50 worth would be 500 points X 20 that's 10,000 points which is equivalent to about $12.50. So, let's pretend I am going to buy only the good deals.

I definitely want the butter as this is a screaming price 4 Butter $10, the shrimp ring I need for the weekend and it's a good deal (especially nice that it comes with shrimp sauce) that's $3.99, the TP is a good deal so I'll get 4 X $4.49=$17.96 The paper towel is $1.99X4=$7.96. Christie Cookies and Crackers $1.49X4=$5.96 So, we are at $45.87 already! The coffee is a good deal(925g)$4.69 and so I am at $50.56! There are still several things I will buy because they are on sale! Now the challenge will be whether or not they have all these things in stock tomorrow.

The bottom line is $50.56 worth of on sale things I would have bought anyways will cost $12.50 less or $38.06(I left out the taxes to keep it less complicated).

Way below.....

Points Required100% rewardneed to spendpercentage

(sorry I was so happy I learned how to make a table and then actually import it into blogger!! But it just sits down there at the bottom of the page!) Way at the bottom of the page is my handy dandy chart showing you how many Shopper's Points you get for each increment of points, for 8000 points you can have $10.00 worth of products at Shopper's. You will have spent $800 to get to that level without a 20X event. This is a return on your money of 1.25%. The higher the level you go to, the better the return, but remember you have to spend that much at one time in order to redeem your points, not counting prescriptions, stamps, gift cards, bus passes, passport photos, etc...

So, I just buy things there when they are on sale and I don't usually pay too much attention to the points, except when there are a bunch of things on sale on 20X the points day!

So, that's part one of what could be many posts on the fine print about points!

Freezing Eggs????

Freezing eggs??? You can do that? This is a question I have heard many times and so I thought I would bring you along while I get some of my lovely eggs from my parent's chickens into the freezer. Mom likes to bring us LOTS when she drives out to see us, because it could be a long time till we see her again. Their eggs are the best! We feel so sad when we run out. I wouldn't want them to go bad and I know I'll be baking lots this winter, so freezing is a fantastic option.

To Freeze Eggs....break 5 eggs into a bowl, add 1 tsp of salt, lightly mix.
You can put them into plastic containers or bags. I write the expiry date right on them(6 months)as well as directions that 3 Tbsp=1egg. The night before I need them I take them out and thaw them in the fridge overnight. Viola! Eggs!

What can you do with these eggs, you ask?? You can use them in baking, for scrambled eggs(don't add salt), waffles, pancakes, casseroles...pretty much use them like you would fresh eggs, only you can't have sunny side up!

Learning all the time

I am a life learner! I love to learn about new things. I thought I'd share some of the great ways to access all sorts of information. For instance, we are learning Spanish as a family. The traditional school way is just not cutting it for us so we threw in a short itunes podcast, and a few you tube videos!
You don't have to have an ipod to use itunes. Anyone can get a free itunes account and then access the store to find the topic you are interested in. You can just play it through your computer.Love to travel, cook, listen to world news, learn more about computers????There's loads of podcasts!
If you have an ipod and can hook it up to play in your vehicle you can listen to podcasts or books as you drive back and forth to whereever....The possibilities are endless. Love to learn??? Try some free podcasts!
