Torre and Tagus Warehouse Sale 2015

I ventured out to the Torre & Tagus Warehouse Sale on the very first day of the sale!  Torre and Tagus is a supplier of home decor that is not usually open to the public, but they do this sale annually and open to the public during this time.  

Here are a few snapshots of the aisles....there's a selection of bowls, candle holders, pillows, small furniture, giftware and other home decor, all at 50-75% off wholesale prices.

Most of the items were very reasonably priced.  The current discount of 50% off applies at the till and is off of the white sticker prices.  

I did find a few things, all priced from 3.75 to 11.50...
This geo print lacquered box was $8.

These white geometric vessels were $10.  Large enough to be future home to a small terrarium perhaps?

Live edge cutting boards (two sizes avail, I bought the smaller, 8x10 size, $11.50)...hostess gift?  The larger was $14.50.

Metal geo shapes...floating as Christmas decor at the moment...$3.75-$8.75 ea.

The sale runs between now and January 8th, 2016.  New stock added daily.  

Note: you must bring a non-perishable food item as a donation for entry to the sale!

Save the Cheese!

I have a new find that I have to share...awesome if you're a cheese lover like me!  Formaticum Cheese Storage Bags are amazing storage bags that keep your opened cheese fresh for weeks....WEEKS!!

This is the last remaining bit of a huge brick of cheddar we opened 4 weeks ago.  It is as fresh as the day we opened it (for real!).  
Made in France, they come in a box of 15 for around $10 on Amazon (also available at some fine cheese retailers, but Amazon was easier for us).  The bags are made of a unique butcher-type paper that allows the cheese to still breathe (like a cheese cave).  No more hardening.  No mold.  No waste!!

Worth every cent in my books!  This is a sure-fire way to prevent waste!  I will definitely buy these again.

McArthur Glen Designer Outlet at YVR

My two sisters, mom and I paid a visit to the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Mall today.  It's located on the right just as you approach the Vancouver International Airport off of Templeton Drive.  Easy to find,  with ample free parking,  this place could potentially be a good place to spend some time either before/after your flight or during a layover. 
I went shopping today with hopes of purchasing one item in mind and I was pretty thrilled to find it on promotion (for a limited time).  For any parent of a ice hockey,  ball hockey or baseball prodigy,  Under Armour carries a high performance athletic brief/jock for juniors that has a built-in pocket for a cup.  Super comfy.  Regularly priced at the outlet for $24.99/pair but I happily paid $35 for two pairs.  These are hard to find,  and factoring in the current exchange rate, it is actually much cheaper than the Under Armour in the USA.

Under Armour built-in cup athletic briefs

I also popped into the Vans outlet and scored a major deal on their kids shoes.  The leather vans for boys,  classic laced were on sale for $14.95 and it is currently 'buy one get one for 50%off'  sale items,  so I picked up a gray canvas pair for $7.47. There were a ton of sale selection ($14.95 to $29.99) for any youngsters from toddlers to 4 Youth.
Brown suede and leather classic laced Vans $14.95
Classic Gray Canvas laced Vans (2nd pair 50%off) came to $7.47
We all walked away buying something,  from wetsuits,  walking gear,  workout wear and family footwear,  it was a worth while visit.
Our only setback and criticism is that currently,  there are no restaurants or quick eats (other than coffee shop Cafe Artigiano). So, pack a snack and some water if you intend to stay a while!
For parents with young kids,  there is a pretty decent under cover children's play area for them to either be bribed or rewarded to check out while shopping! And commercial airplanes fly overhead every few minutes quite low,  so it's quite the sight as you walk the outdoor shop aisles. 
Children's Play Area, shaded and plenty of fun for the kids
Sign up for their PRIVILEDGE CLUB to get access to special promotions, coupons, birthday treats and for a limited time only (Until SEPT 7), 10% off your purchases at the mall and your chance to win a $200 shopping card!

Happy Shopping!

Hunter Boots

SO it's 30+ degrees outside and not exactly the right season for Hunter rain boots, but if you've been wanting a's a great deal on tall black ones!! Perfect for west coasters...

Big Box Outlet has a selection of sizes in the matte black and matte navy finish of tall Hunter Rain Boots for only $75CAD.  A great deal if you consider that they retail for $160 CAD (and the black ones almost never go on sale!)

You can have them shipped for free with purchase over $100 or to the store free for in-store pick up...

Dollarama under $5 Buck Finds

A quick stop into my local Dollarama last week resulted in  a few really cool finds.

First up,  the sun umbrella ground stake.  I've had one for years and it is extremely handy at the beach,  on grass or sand.  You screw the stake into the ground by nearly a foot with the handles that swivel outwards,  then your beach umbrella into that.  Doesn't budge, even on the windy days. Works great for wooden post signs too! I paid $16 for mine years ago,  and they're only $3 at the dollar store!

Next,  the chalkboard paint Mason jars with lids,  for $1.25. How cute are these for that price.  Nuff said.

Lastly,  the entire selection of Green Works cleaning solutions.  I've used these products for a few years purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart for much more than the $3 Dollarama is selling them for.  I'm a fan of the all purpose spray and the bathroom cleaner!

Happy Shopping.

Summer is coming: Patio Furniture

Summer is just around the corner. 
Are you looking for a new conversation set or sectional? 
Big Box Outlet (formerly MTF) has a few options that are good in value and reasonable in cost. 
Check in store to see the demo models for comfort,  size and colours,  you will be surprised at the choices available. 
I received the Lilloet set as a gift from my family earlier in the spring. It has a solid aluminum frame (very light weight) with charcoal cushions. And is the perfect compact size for our back deck.  It comes in taupe and charcoal (see photos). This set is $599.95 and occasionally Big Box will have promotions to further reduce the cost of this set and others.
