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.

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.

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...
