Camping deals

Hey Folks!

Do you like camping?  I think I do…I better since we just bought some camping gear!  We are actually planning on doing a bunch of camping next summer in preparation for doing West coast trail in summer 2015.  We have been keeping an eye out for deals on supplies and since we need pretty much everything we need to save all the money we can!!  Recently we found pretty good sales on a backpack and a tent both suitable for trekking through the wilderness.

New Tent

This is the Astro 2 Light, 2 man tent.  We found it at Wholesale Sports and saved $39.99.  We set it up in the backyard and left it over the weekend while we were in Saskatoon.  It was fine during the rain and wind that Regina had that weekend.


This is the McKinley Yukon 50+10 Liter multi-day pack.  We found this at Atmosphere and saved $50.oo!! Both the tent and the pack were not planned purchases but we figured we should start slowly buying stuff when we find sales.

Now I’m turning it over to you! What are some of the best deals you’ve ever found?


Great bargain on Keds!

The other day at the mall I found a great deal on some Keds!
It was awesome because I had been looking for some new everyday flats. We wound up at the mall trying to cool off from our hot, hot house and we wandered into The Bay where they had a huge sale on! All the clearance shoes were already 30% off plus you got to take an additional 50% off the sale price! At first I couldn’t see anything I liked and some of them were still more than I wanted to spend since we hadn’t really planned on spending any money at all. But just as we were leaving I saw a table with boxes of Keds. I found my size in a couple different styles and they both fit and were an awesome deal so I snatched them up. The flowery ones aren’t normally something I would gravitate towards but they were pretty cute and I couldn’t resist the great price! I have been wearing the striped ones the most so far, especially for just around the house since I can more easily slip them on and they are the most comfortable out of the two.

So I ended up getting both pairs for 35.00 and some change (with taxes). I’m not 100% sure but I think they were regular priced at $45.00 for the stripped pair and $38.00 for the flower pair. So I saved around fifty bucks!! I mean come on, you really can’t pass up on a deal like that
