Turkey Anyone?

Costco has a $15 off deal on turkeys right now! This 5.65kg turkey(fresh) was $26.50 less the $15.00 or $11.50!! That's $2.04/kg or 92 1/2 cents a pound! Nice! Throw it in the freezer and you have a nice turkey dinner to enjoy before they go on sale again at Easter!

Caramel Microwave Popcorn

Want a treat to bring to a Christmas party or as a little gift? Want something really easy? This is one of my favorite, easy, very tasty(only make it a Christmas time) recipes. What I love about having a blog is that I can share and record things like this for myself so that next year, when I can't find the recipe for this, I can type in the search bar, caramel microwave popcorn.

All you need is a brown paper bag! Which is easier said than done these days! I was given a big stack of these Safeway brown paper bags and I have been carefully using them!! It seems right around this time of year in the flyers that come to our door we get one brown paper bag, maybe you do too!
The recipe is here

I add a few nuts and then melt a little chocolate(wafers or blocks of melting chocolate)and drizzle it over top. The down and up side is that it's soooo good!

Helping you make your gift budget go further!

More help in reducing your spending!! If you got the Kijiji deal, buy a $25 gift certificate for $10 you can combine it with this 25% off deal, if you turned it into a gift card. All you do is go to Chapters indigo and type in gift cards, you use your gift certificate number to redeem for gift cards straight across! If you want to use them as gifts you can send them right to the recipient.So, as you can see this is a real money saver! And a great way to expand your gift giving!!
This Saturday Dec 11, seems to be retailers attempt to lure us to spend at their place!! Canadian Tire is offering $15 off when you spend $60 before taxes! The coupon is in their flyer, which comes out on Friday. We are pretty happy as we need a new faucet and they are on sale at Canadian Tire this weekend!
Shopper's Drug Mart is having another 20X the points when you spend $75 on Sat, Dec 11th.
In the Michael's flyer there is a 50% off one regularly priced item coupon for Dec 9-13.
P.S.If you are on my blog site(not the email you get as a subscriber)you may notice it's snowing!!! Thanks to SneakyMomma !!!!

In this week's Smart Source there is this rebate to try the Air Wick Starter kit.
Spend $12.99 or less, mail in your receipt with the Air Wick purchase circled and the UPC code handwritten on the receipt.
Want to make this purchase go further? You may have heard the rumor that Shoppers is doing 20X the points next weekend again. Typically that is a spend $75 and get 20X the points. If you buy this then you will have spent $12.99 of your total and only need $62.01(a smart Smart Canucker had this idea!).
How much is 20X the points? Well typically you would get 750 points for a $75 purchase. On 20X the points day you get 15000.
8000 points =$10
22000 points =$30
So, it's worth close to $20 worth of free purchases. If you spent $62.01(after you got the Air Wick) you would end up getting $20, so $62.01-$20=$42.01 So, $75 worth of purchase would in the end cost $42.01 close to 50% off.
Did I lose you? Don't worry, it scrambles my brain too.

Buying stuff just to get points doesn't make sense, but if there are things you already need and are a good deal at Shoppers, why not?
Yesterday, I got $125 worth of merchandise for free(I had to pay the HST).That goes a long ways to helping with the Christmas budget!
If you have a Optimum card and receive emails from them be sure to look at the Free $10 coupon one. Select people have a survey in the upper right side of the email worth 5000 points!
