You must be right...no $1 LED bulbs here, but they did have 2 pk 60 watt equiv. for $3.00.
Bought enough to change out the bulbs we use most often or stay on longest.
Here it was $2/2pk of same. I bought a bunch. Beats when they were a fortune to buy!

So a Duracell power pack can easily light the bulk of my house. Recharge it with my solar panel and I shouldn't have to worry about darkness in the house for a long while.

Ok, never mind Canadian Tire...

Went to Costco today for "just a couple of items" then left with a cart full of LED lights. Now the house is all LED or CFLs (mostly LED... or all LED if I go back to Costco...)

Why?

1) GU10 bulbs (those tiny "used to be halogen" 2-pronged twist type) $4.89 for 4 pk
2) PAR 30 flood lights $5.89 for 2 pk
3) 60W regular lightbulbs : $2.89 for a 5 pack!

This was a Costco in Edmonton (Yellowhead trail), not sure if this deal is available at other stores.

At that rate, I'll wait until a store pays me to get their LEDs!

Lowes has 4250W generators on sale until Jan 10th at 50% off ($300 instead of $600). Not too familiar with the brand but reviews all around seem good. As a backup to a backup plan, I think this is decent deal.

Thank you helicopilot! I ordered one today. $299.50 with free wheels and cover with free delivery. Runs 14 hours on 5 gallons. Thanks for the heads-up. Great deal!
None you improvise, one (or more) is luxury.

The same generators are on sale again, 50% off at Lowe’s.

Also at 50% off is seed-starting soil. May be worth getting a few bags ahead of the spring.

Time to revive this baby... Likely going to bump into good boxing week deals. What did you find??.

A few good deals at Home Hardware this week:

60% off CR2032 batteries (my alarm system and a lot of my stuff seem to require those)
45% off Energizer Max batteries at $8.77/ pack
50% off 12x14 poly tarp at $10.97 each
55% off lined work gloves (latex coating) at $3.97 a pair
70% off poly braided rope, 240#, 50’ for $1.57
30% off 1L chainsaw oil


Remember however, don’t overspend just because XYZ is on sale!

Home Hardware has a sale this week on canning jars at 35% off, bringing their usually overpriced cost to under $8. That’s the cheapest I’ve seen this year.

Anticipating that all the folks who tried their hands at gardening this year may also try canning this fall, it may be worth stocking up now if you need them.

Sale starts 2Jul in store only, and... no rain checks
