So, today I got some flyers! Some would be an understatement! I am swimming in them! So, quickly I would like to post some deals.
Today at Superstore they are having the no tax event. All this week they are having their gas coupon savings. So, combine buying your gifts with no tax today and getting the gas savings! I have found this gas coupon is very worthwhile. Last time they had it it saved me $23.75 at the gas pump, plus I got $3.33 in gas bucks!
Staples has door crashers again, today only. Their Brother Wireless Inkjet 4 in 1 is $29.52. If you need this why not check first at Superstore and price match with no tax?
Staples also has 32GB USB drive for $19.98(I checked, Superstore doesn't carry this one)
Safeway has an offer of buy 2 of their $30 iTunes gift card packs(which contain 3, $10 cards) and get them for $15 off. So that would be $60-$15=$45 for 6 gift cards. Might make nice stocking stuffers or you can save them for upcoming birthdays. I called Superstore and they said they would match this deal as long as I have the flyer in hand.
Rexall has a coupon for the iTunes cards also. Their deal is buy $30(3X$10)and get $5 off. Maybe a better idea if you don't need 6???
Toys R Us will match any advertised price. They have the spend $100 get a $15 gift card that must be used between Dec 2-15th and you must spend $50.(Toys R Us now has airmiles)
What I do is shop when there are sales like these. In the past I then tried to be efficient and wrap at the same time...BAD IDEA...now I wait and watch the flyers to be sure my item doesn't drastically drop in price. If it does I ask them to price match or return it.
What are your ideas for shopping smart at Christmas???

My thanks to Karen for this great resource! I met Karen in Edmonton when I was there to do a shopping seminar, a few years ago. She and I have stayed in touch via email. She recently sent me this link. It is a Canadian government site for resources to do with money.
I right away tested out the budget calculator. I found it very easy. It also was extensive. Usually these tools are missing categories. The only thing I would have liked would have been the ability to name a few. For example: in the income category it would be nice to add Income tax return, or odd jobs. Otherwise, you have a dollar amount and no idea where it came from.To remedy this, when I printed it I added my own categories by hand.

|Do you, like me, have good intentions of sending Christmas cards??? You are going to need some stamps!|
|Stamps now have no amount printed on them...so they don't expire, and when stamps go up in price....yours are still good!|

|I got this email from Kellogg's this morning for Free Special K Cereal. Click here to go to Websaver and get your coupon. This coupon is only good on Jan 3, 2012. I tried to do this the last time there was free chocolate cheerios, but was unable to find them anywhere! How about you???|
Oh, I just heard from Cory! She said she went in to Cooper's on the last free cereal coupon day(I am sure Safeway would do the same)and they gave her a voucher to get a box when they came in! Thanks Cory! :)

I love buttered chicken! Years ago my sister in law introduced me to it. In the past few years my friend Clayton has made it for us several times and it is fantastic! I love Naan bread too. If you are having buttered chicken you need Naan bread(sounds like If you give a mouse a cookie!) I decided to try and make it myself. I found this incredibly easy recipe...which I proceeded to write on a small piece of paper and I neglected to copy the website where I got the recipe from! Oops! So, today when I was excited to share it with you I had to hunt for an incredibly small piece of paper in my recycle!(Happily there was reference to the website!) Why do I do this to myself?! Over and over I find a recipe in a cookbook, or online and I make it and can't find it again! Thus, I blog! My online recipe book....hopeful I won't lose it! :) It is incredibly easy and costs less than a dollar to make!
|Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut into 8 pieces. You can make circles or squares. Mine are far from beautiful!|
|Add some olive oil to your frying pan. Brown each side for 2 minutes!|
|This Naan bread is FANTASTIC! It's soft and chewy on the inside! A wonderful addition to buttered chicken or some other wonderful dish you need a nice bread for dipping! Enjoy!|

|My mom and dad brought me a small pumpkin(hehe)!|
Thanks sooo much mom and dad!
|First I sawed it apart! Seriously! :)|
|Then I cut up 2 cookie sheets full(to start!). I put a bit of water in the bottom of the pan and baked them for 50 minutes at 400.|
|Then I threw the steamed pumpkin pieces into my handy dandy food processor.( I am always a bit boggled by the instructions saying not to use with hot food....)|
|This is the result! Pumpkin puree!!! Nothing added. Pure pumpkin yumminess!|
|We had some yummy frozen blueberries which I heated up to pour over our waffles.|
|When I make a double batch I usually have a dozen to freeze. I lay them out on cookie sheets and freeze them. Then I pop them into freezer bags. They are all ready to go into the toaster! Hope this makes your morning happier! :)|
