4 Tips for Shopping at the William Ashley Warehouse Sale


It is that time of the year again, and the William Ashley Warehouse Sale has returned to its location in Vaughan. Last Friday, I got a sneak peek at the sale and did some shopping buying some gifts and some much-needed items for my teen and me. I have to say this the warehouse is full of great items from brands you know and love. The sale started on Oct 25th and runs through November 27th. Here are some tips to manage your time at the sale.

Make a List

Have a shopping plan as always. Know what you are looking for and who you are shopping for. There are sections in the warehouse that can match everyone on your list. William Ashley is known for the beautiful housewares from its stores, but during the sale, they also have amazing sections of baby items, puzzles, games and yes even some toys and craft items.

They even have things you may need around the house including knobs and hooks. I kind of fell in love with the knobs.

Grab a Cart



You will want to grab a cart or wait for one if you must. I found shopping with a cart allowed me to have my hands free for browsing. There is so much to see and explore, and you do not want to miss any of it. The cart also has 3 tiers, think shopping spree!

Check Out the Daily Deals

They have a featured daily deal in the front section of the sale. Make sure you check these outs. I think of them more as featured sale items because the prices at the sale are already good.  I grabbed the daily deal when I was there on Friday.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road


If you want to make sure you see everything stick to the yellow path. It is a path that takes you through every section in the warehouse. You will start it dinnerware. I fell in love with a teapot there. Then it is off to Home Decor, Giftware, Christmas decor, spa, candles, baby and kids items and more.



I bought a few things for Christmas shopping mostly in the Christmas decor, candles and games sections. Now when you go, if you spend more than $300 before taxes you will receive a $50 gift card that can be used at their Bloor Street Store or online at williamashley.com before December 24th, 2016 if you are spending more than $199 pre-tax.

I enjoy my trip up to Vaughan every year, and after a morning of shopping, I am glad to be home where I can sip a cup of tea and start wrapping some presents.



The 5 Top Places to Look for Coupons in Canada and the USA


Do you like to save money? I know I do. These days for me it is very much a necessity. When hard times hit, well I go back to the basics. For me, the basics mean using coupons so I can stretch my dollars.  Why do I have to stretch my dollars right now? My AD network closed its doors last week. In doing so, I lost a large part of my monthly income. As a blogger,  those ads you saw on my sidebar mattered to my monthly income. It was that simple. There is a lull happening while I figure out my next best move.

I find myself knowing; I know the basics of making my dollars stretch, and I am very thankful that I have that knowledge. So when we need to stretch our dollars where are the best places to look for coupons:


Did you know that technology is helping consumers like you and me save money? If you are looking to save, you want to have certain apps on your smartphone. Everyone knows I love the Flipp app. Did you know it has a coupon section both in Canada and the US? Yes, you will have to print these coupons off at home, but since you have the flyers on the app as well. It lets you know where to find the best deals.  Other friends love the Coupgon app. This app is used at the checkout to help Canadians save.

My American Friends love the Coupons.com app as well as the Flipp app that I shared earlier. It has a ton of offers, and you can get the coupons in 3 ways: mailed to you, print at home if you have an iPad, iPhone or certain iPod touchs and certain HP printers like mine ( the HP Envy 7640) or added to your store loyalty card. It all depends on the deal.

Printable Coupons

Here in Canada, we have Smartsource.ca. Think of a one stop place to get lots of great coupons. From ice cream and cereal to beauty products I am sure you will find coupons your family can use. Combine these with a sale and you have a great win. For my American friends, you have SmartSource.com Just found out both of these have apps!

Another page I recently discovered while back to school shopping was Teacher’s List. On Teachers List there are some great coupons you can print off as well some great deal offers if you live in the US.

Websaver.ca has printable coupons and mailed coupons for their VIP list.

Online Coupon Codes


Another one that many friends use is RetailMeNot. The have coupon codes, deals, and printable coupons. They also have some that are exclusive to their site.

Email Companies Directly

If you love a company email them directly. Here are 25 companies who will email you coupons for free if you live in the US. Here in Canada, I know this works as well.

Social Media

I often find coupons by following my favourite brands online. I also belong to a few local savings groups online. I find these groups love to share deals and coupons.

Remember these are just the five best ways to find the coupons you want. You can also find them on tear pads in the aisles as you shop, in magazines, in newspaper inserts and even asking your friends. Let me know your favorite ways to find coupons.

The SPC Card- A Student Savings Card


I know another back to school post, but this one could have the students in your life saving hundreds of dollars this school year. That is a good thing, right? My teen is busy getting ready for back to school and well this mom is always looking for ways to save.

Yesterday, my teen and I were at the mall. We were shopping for back to school must-haves for her. We were at one store, and since my teen was making a purchase, they asked if she wanted to purchase the SPC card for $10.00 to get an immediate discount. She looked at me and said, Mom, I want to get it. So many of the places she loves to shop and eat at give discounts to students who have the card.

Students with the SPC card can earn some great discounts, and they can even bank for free at BMO.

Some of the great deals your student can find:

  • 10% off at regular and sale prices at the Source
  • 10% off your entire purchase at The Body Shop
  • 10% off regular priced merchandise at Rexall
  • 20% more Petro-Points at Petro Canada
  • 10% off all regular and sale prices including BOGO at Payless shoes.
  • $5 off any purchase of $25 or more at Journeys.

There are also great offers at some restaurants and coffee shops.

Check out all the deals here: https://www.spccard.ca/deals

My teen this morning was checking out all the deals as she still has a few things to pick up before the first day of school. If you have a high school or university student in your family, you may want to get a card for them.
