Flipp for Fruits and Vegetables -Fresh or Frozen

During the summer we need to stay hydrated. When heading out for the day with kids, bring water and a variety of snacks. When I head out for the day I always add some of my favourite fruits and vegetables to my bag. If your favourites aren’t in season, you can always go with frozen ones, that are perfect for coolers and will keep everything inside chilled.

Flipp for Weekend BBQ’s and Picnics

The weekend is here and it is time to celebrate Canada’s 150 Birthday. Everyone all over Canada will be visiting friends or heading out to events around town. Weekend BBQ’s are the perfect way to celebrate the season with friends and family.

If you don’t like crowds then the best place for a BBQ would be in the backyard or even a park for a picnic. I recently picked up this picnic basket cooler I found advertised on Flipp.  I couldn’t resist the 30 savings Canadian Tire was offering on this item. It will be well used over the summer.

It has wheels and a handle so you can pull it around instead of carrying the bag. Perfect for a family of 4.

Flipp’s 5 Fab Deals – Healthy Choices

This week, it is all about making healthy choices in the food we eat. I have decided to eat more fruits and vegetables daily to become a better me. We all get to the point where some days we don’t feel like cooking so we order in or go out to eat. This can be costly and not always the best solution. Using Flipp always helps me find the right product for my needs, not my wants.
