    I don't know if people know this but you can buy groceries at amazon.ca except produce.

    Since the garbage shed with hinged lid has been around, I've expected at some time that said lid would drop on my head one day.
    Last night was the time-as the icy rain layer had some snow on it and the lid hinges held the lid up initially but lid dropped on the back of my head while I was partially bent into the bin to deal with a garbage can item. If I did not swear out loud! Fortunately I bent more as soon as I was struck so not a full blow to the noggin.

    You can bet your snow shovel I will either hold said lid up from now on or wedge something by the hinges to partially block the next lid drop on my head.

This is assuming you dont live in Quebec (because they dont have a free trial option, just get an extra month added)

    2.) check out one of the various filler-item websites: such as https://www.shopfiller.com/
    Key in the dollar amount you need... pick the .ca from the pull down list... and you can browse all kinds of cheap stuff you dont need, but that will give you exactly the cost to push you over the free shipping threshold. Regardless if you want the item or not, if it's cheaper than the shipping cost without it, might as well get a door stop, or bag of screws, or ball of yarn, or... you get the idea.
    I have used that site and it's great. Here's a similar site:

    http://ca.superfiller.com/

    It's a while since I had to find a filler item but I recall having better luck with the one bhlombardy posted.

    If you're purging, they have a good deal on the vacuum bags. We're moving and I need a way to store my mother's blankets from the hospital, so I've been looking. They're Prime. And they come with a hand pump if you don't have a vacuum with a hose thing.

    Baby's first day of daycare and they'll make her crawl up and down the stairs leading to the outside by herself. The stairs are covered in rock salt and dirt. Plus, they don't wash hands before meals.

    I'm in the #1 spot for another daycare, but #1 spot is still on the waiting list. I can't believe I'm paying over four figures for this....

    Arrgghhh!

    I remember you went through a similar spell prior to finding out about DD2 on the way. Hugs to you and mugs of steamy beverages. And seaweed snacks.
