Competitive eater and Mum of four devours two 72-ounce steak dinners in 15 minutes: PF Friday grab a brew #74

FREE MEAL IF YOU CAN EAT THIS!   You thought you had a big grocery budget imagine how much it costs to feed competitive eater from Nebraska Molly Schuyler’s family every month. I’d be interested to hear how much Molly spends for the family grocery budget but I’m pretty sure it’s not as bad as we are all assuming. Although in order to master the art of competitive eating I’d presume you’d have to buy lots of food and practice the sport of speed eating at home. I bet if you were to go on a date with an eater like Molly you better take her to an all-you can-eat-buffet otherwise you might see one heck of a food bill coming your way. They all say that we are bound to be good at something in our life and for Molly, that’s eating. All joking aside this super-eating mum of four children is a competitive eater and she doesn’t let anything get in the way of shattering food eating records. My jaw dropped just watching her You Tube videos of her competitive eating ventures   Competitive eating   You don’t hear much about competitive eating in Canada unless I’m missing […]

How to DIY asphalt driveway sealing: Costs and process

UPDATE THE LOOK OF YOUR PROPERTY WITHOUT FUSS AND HIGH COSTS   Every year without fail someone rings our doorbell wanting to seal our asphalt driveway but I’m the DIY guy around here so if I can do it the right way I won’t pay anyone to do it. When it comes to home renos and home maintenance I’m picky so I won’t just do something to be cheap I’ll do it because I know I can do it or call in the professionals. There’s nothing worse than paying to get a job done twice. Re-sealing your asphalt driveway can extend the life of your drive by keeping out water in the winter that then freezes during cold weather. The freeze-thaw cycle can destroy mountains so a small asphalt driveway is nothing to Mother Nature. I personally use a metal shovel during the winter months because it cleans the driveway of snow with a better result than a plastic shovel, the problem is that the metal shovel takes a layer of sealer with it every time. No, I don’t need to invest in a snow-blower either as our driveway does not warrant that expense as it’s not that big. Even […]

Are coupon apps replacing paper coupons?

SAVE WITH YOUR MOBILE PHONE   Instant savings coupon apps in Canada are popping up all over the place so fast that it’s hard for me to keep track these days. The mobile coupon is becoming a household name and the savings are waiting to be claimed. All those people who said you couldn’t get savings on healthy foods will be eating their words because coupon apps are here to stay. As you can see from the photo you can now save money on all sorts of produce ranging from yams to lettuce and tomatoes. Is the savings worth your time now? Saving money in your grocery budget using your mobile phone, provided you have one means no more carting around big bulky coupon binders. To be honest when I started the weekly grocery game challenge here at CBB I never dreamed there would be grocery saving apps the way they are around today. I can remember starting to order coupons from save.ca years ago and then realizing that there were more companies that were willing to send out coupons in the mail. It was a great way for us to cut back on spending while grocery shopping but it […]

grocery game monthly challenge

Do you engage in random chat at the grocery store? :The Grocery game challenge #5 May 26-June 1, 2014

FOOD IS A CONVERSATION PIECE   If you are a foodie the best random chat that you might ever get is while you grocery shop. I’m pretty sure that if you think back you can say that you’ve either learned something from simple random chat at the grocery store or you’ve taught someone something that they didn’t know. It’s amazing how people often look for someone to talk to while going up and down the aisles but it’s also apparently one of the best places to meet people and find true love. I don’t know how true that is but my wife said if you want to find a single woman looking to date go to the grocery store or pharmacy (just stay away from the “woman section” if you know what I mean, ha-ha). That doesn’t make for a very good conversation starter. If you are a woman looking for a date don’t miss out on dating opportunities with the best way to meet men being at Canadian Tire or any big box store. I had to laugh but maybe she is on to something. When I grocery shop I don’t tend to talk with strangers because if you […]
