I suspect you all know by now how much our family loves to shop at Best Buy, both in store, and at bestbuy.ca. I can’t help checking out all of their sales, each day, including their “baby sale” running at the time of this post. When our daughter Cadence was born, we had to cross-border shop into Maine in order to visit Best Buy, but now having them local and the website available to shop from, it’s great for buying gifts for a friends new addition. Memories come flashing back of when we were getting our home ready for Cadence’s arrival while browsing through the items in the baby and maternity section of bestbuy.ca. Check out some of the items below that we would choose if we were expecting now for ourselves, a family member or even an expecting friend!Read More

Maybe even better! I made this elevated pet bed for one of our cats, but it could easily be used for a small dog, (Approx. 25lbs, use your judgement).Read More

Back to school clothes, for us, means back to Sears! #GotItAtSears
Sears has been our families choice for years, family members have worked there in the past, and has been our location for savings. How many stores can you go to, other than Sears, and get a complete outfit, (head-to-toe) for under $100? We know there isn’t many, when you have to take quality into consideration, and that dreaded time for parents is indeed on our calendar again. Yes, That’s right, “Back to school” is upon us once again, and having a tween, the cost of school supplies add up quick. So heading to Sears, as we have done every other year just makes sense.
