Capitalize on Boxing Day Deals in Canada

Boxing Day in Canada is most commonly viewed as a day of fighting through hoards of shoppers beginning in the early hours of the morning. Boxing Day is the day immediately following Christmas during which huge numbers of people will line up for hours outside of stores in the hopes of scoring the best deals. Happening yearly on December 26th, it’s the kind of holiday that people partake in without actually knowing why they’re celebrating it or even when it started. It’s also the time of year during which scores of naysayers argue that boxing day sales aren’t as rock-bottom as they would expect, but the main thing that needs to be understood is that older models and items will be heavily discounted, while a brand new TV that came out this year will unlikely be. The Meaning of Boxing Day and it’s History Though it’s unclear how Boxing Day truly originated, a few historical facts (or perhaps passed-down rumours that were never true to begin with) stand out: On the day following Christmas, wealthy masters of the household would hand servants gifts inside of a wooden or clay container as a kind of token of appreciation for the year, and more specifically for […]

Mr.CBB’s Weekly Blog Post Picks Nov 16,2012

This week has flown by and since I was on vacation for a few days I was able to get out and source out a new kitchen. This past week we made a trip to IKEA to pick out the kitchen we wanted as well as all the extras. We’ve went to all the big box stores and really you will get the same thing just for a higher price. In my house in England I installed an IKEA kitchen and loved it. I did all the work myself which was pretty easy to me and when it came time to sell the buyer fell in love with it. We’re looking forward to the renovations but not as much as we are looking forward to paying the mortgage off in full! Have you renovated and put in a new kitchen? How much did you spend and what did you put in? In no particular order, sit back, go ahead grab a hot beverage some Stuffed Santa Strawberries then enjoy these good weekend reads. Note: Next Week I will rename it the Mr.CBB’s Top 20 Blog Post Picks so I can control the length of this list. I know some of you […]

5 Exercise Methods That Cost Absolutely Nothing!

Guest Post Not everyone thinks of the simple exercise methods they can easily do at home costing them nothing at all. As the summer approaches, everyone steps up the effort to start looking a little bit better. Over Christmas and New Year’s we’re known to indulge in a few things that aren’t exactly beneficial for our weight, so the few months after are always a struggle to get back into shape. The best way to do this is to eat properly and exercise. Many people join a gym, but some people don’t have the money  or the time do be doing so. Here are 5 great ways to exercise and lose weight and save money at the same time. Running/Walking The most obvious and popular method is going for a run. On my way to work, I’m constantly having to shift over for runners to get past me. On average, a person can expect to burn 700 calories with an hour of running – so if you can keep to a balanced diet, that’s a pound lost every 5 days (3500 calories to a pound). It’s free and can be done pretty much anywhere. If you’re like me, however, and don’t like […]
