My First Blog -- Sales, Contests & Giveaways

Welcome to my first blog, Just Putzing Around. I'm a mother of two, my daughter is 25 months and my son is 3 weeks. I'm always looking for a good deal and want to share them with others.

I look forward to Thursdays, as that is when my favourite flyers come out. Today, the Canadian Tire flyer had many great deals, as usual. Most of the sale items are power tools as Father's Day is coming up. You can sign up online to receive their eFLYER, which is the environmentally friendly way to save.

For those of you in Saskatoon... If you're a parent or a parent-to-be (or are shopping for a little one), I recommend Two Little Birdies, a baby and toddler boutique (they sell maternity clothes too!). They have several sales throughout the year where everything in the store is on sale, often at 40% off. They have a sale on until June 14, where you choose any one item in the store for 30% off. You can sign up online to receive their email newsletter, where you will find out about all of their sales and promotions.

For those of you in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia, enter online for your chance to win the Ultimate Calgary Stampede experience for four, valued at $10,000. The contest ends on June 22.

Feisty, Frugal, & Fabulous is having a giveaway open to those with a Canadian or US address. Enter to win a pair of What Squeaky Shoes! from the Sneak A Roos line. The giveaway ends on June 21.

  1. Cora,

    glad to see you have entered the blog world, and I think this is going to be great to get information on sales and giveaways. But, saying your daughter is 25 months. Come on. She's two.

  2. You're absolutely right Tamara! She's about to be 26 months... I'll start using 2 years to describe her age.
