Passport Prices Changing July 1, 2013

Passport Canada fees are changing July 1, 2013.
Right now the fees for passports valid for 5 years are as follows:
Adults(16 and up)$87


Under 3 $22(valid for 3 years)

July 1, 2013 Fees
Adults(16 and up)
$160 valid for 10 years

Adults(16 and up)
$120 valid for 5 years

$57 valid for 5 years

Our passports have expired. We are going to renew our child's passport before July 1 which will save us $24.
Our adult passports we will wait to renew until July 1 as the new 10 year passport saves us $14/10 year X 3(people) or $52, but more importantly no renewal for 10 years! If we were to opt to only renew for 5 years it would cost $33 more dollars(than last year) for 5 years. However, at this new rate, if we were to only buy 5 years at a time, in the long run it would cost $80 extra dollars for 10 years per person! Our family would save $240 to buy 3, 10 year passports, July 1.

To sum it up. If your child needs a passport. It is best to get it before July 1. If adults need passports it is best to get them July 1 or later and opt for the 10 year passport.
We usually get our passport photos done at Costco. Right now they cost $6.99.

Bacon Pancakes!

blog 007
I was on Pinterest the other day when I found this recipe! Bacon inside of  pancakes, is there anything better?
So, I was inspired to try them this morning! First, I did the bacon(to perfection) on my new to me George Foreman grill! Then I substituted our pancake recipe for the pancake mix in the original recipe.
Pancake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
2 1/4 cup milk
Mix wet together
3 cups flour
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix dry together, add to wet, mix just until combined.
blog 003
Of course I didn't have everything! I thought the mayonnaise squeeze bottle I kept had a large pouring spout, but it didn't!  I improvised and used my pouring measuring cup. They aren't perfect, but they are still tasty. I poured a long line of batter onto a preheated(375) frying pan. then I pressed the cooked bacon piece into the batter and poured a thin line of batter over the  bacon. Then I just continued to cook until done! So, yummy!

Reebee Flyer App

Do you wish you could look at flyers on your Apple device? There is a FANTASTIC app for that! Try Reebee. I  installed the app last week. I love having all the current and upcoming flyers all together in one place! All I did was enter my location and viola! Food flyers, department store flyers, and others, all at your fingertips! There is a Current section and an Upcoming section. Right now in my upcoming I have next week's Walmart, Superstore, Canadian Tire, Rexall and No Frills. It makes it pretty nice for making a shopping list! Now, some have had success price matching with this app, but some haven't. I guess I will still carry around the paper flyers for now. What about you?
The Android version is coming soon.
