Fred Meyer's Bakery Section

Fred Meyer's Bakery section is so much prettier than most Canadian supermarkets.
The desserts are not as sweet as the Canadian ones with better creativity and presentation.
See picture of counter:

I bought some chocolate marshmallows, chocolate sandwich cookies and fruit tart.
They are absolutely delicious and not overly sweet to my surprise.
I would definitely try other sweets in the counter next time!

Burger King in US: Using Internet Coupon for Family Meal

Early October, we went to Burger King in the States and used their 10 dollars family deal internet coupon.
The amount of things we received is amazing. 
We will never get anything like this in Canada because everything is double priced.

Burger King Family Meal Coupon
We received 2 large drinks, 3 large fries, 2 burgers, 2 strawberry cheesecake (tastes great!), and 10 chicken nuggets!!!
Amazing!  I can easily pay 30 dollars plus for these kind of volume in Canada.
American pricing and volume for fast food is just incredible.

However, I have reached the milestone of 20000 hits for my page. 

Gotta keep going!

London Drugs Canada: October Cosmetics Deals for RoC

Recently, I have been trying to find coupon deals for various things and I found a great deal for RoC cosmetics in London Drugs that I just can't pass on.
First of all, the RoC brand was on sale for 30 percent off.  That is a deal in itself because it is an expensive brand.  Same as Vichy or La Roche Posay.

I bought a "Wrinkle Correxion Gift Set" that retails for 49 dollars but is on sale for 34 dollars.  It is the same price as buying the Wrinkle Correxion Creme alone but also comes with a 36 (regular price) Anti-wrinkle eye creme.

I also bought a very small tube of Anti-age Eye Cream for 16.80 (regular 24.00).  Therefore, I spent over 50 dollars.

Now, it is time to use my 3 store in store coupons for that week's promotion.

First, if I spent over 35 dollars, I get a tube of Anti-age Correxion cream that retails for 32 dollars.
Then, if I spent over 40 dollars, I get another tube of Multi-Correxion Cream that retails for 42 dollars.
Last, if I spent over 40 dollars, I would get 10 dollars off.

Now, with 12 percent sales tax in BC, Canada, I paid $47.23 and got 5 RoC items that retails for $183 dollars.  That is a 74% saving over the regular price!!

Not only that is my total percentage shopping for a trip so far, it is my total savings record as well.
That is roughly 136 dollars of saving from the non-sale prices.
I hope they have this sale again....

Trader Joe's Tuna in Green Curry Sauce

We found this Tuna in Green Curry Sauce at Trader Joe's last month and decided to try it.
Amazingly, it taste pretty good to me.  I am always amazed at the new products they come up with every month. 
This one actually taste like green curry from Thailand.
