    Tape? Batteries (for remote controls, watches, alarms, calculators)? What else might be on the stationery and household supply lists for August?

    Farewell July coupons and promotions! Hello, August deals and offers!

    By the time August rolls around our twins will be 4! I still remember announcing my twin pregnancy on SC. It feels like a very long time ago.

    @cath007 Try the thrift stores for watches and just change the watch battery. I am still loving my $5.99 leather-like watch find at Value Village two weeks later.

    ok.. August goals and plans.

    1 or 2 things with my kids. this will actually be a bit tough... 1 is going to a cottage for a week, 1 is going to montreal for pride. we have trips to oakville to bring child and stuff to new apartment.
    give me a moment... going to have a bit of a cry... so proud of them.. but totally not ready for them to go back to school. sigh


    ok. keep a eye on the pantry. and freezer it is in pretty good shape. but ... a few good sales will fill it out nicely.

    money wise.. we are chrunching down on bills ad tightening up the budget. a few thing need to get paid off. this will be a long term thing. as i would also like to start saving for new windows..

    @giese ledta -is there a window supplier offering a promotion for you to pay next year if you get new windows or doors this year? I had such an offer this year from Centennial Windows. Might be worth a look at their windows to see if something suits your needs.

    It's Festival of Friends weekend in Hamilton, for the music fans in Gage Park. There's a nearby restaurant on King St E that serves First Nations food near the Delta, if you'd like to try something new for lunch. HSR posted something about enhanced service on the 1-King route:

    @coupon girl -did you know that the Capital One credit hack could affect Costco Mastercard and HBC Mastercard holders? I have to tell my mother. I heard last night on the Radio-Canada evening news about the affected cards. I thought the hack might be limited to Capital One Visa cards. I also printed off a Global News article to show Mom. Might be a good idea to check your card account with HBC to see if it was affected. I have to ask Mom to do the same with her card.

    Speaking of the Bay-next Tuesday, August 6 is Senior's Day. I was leafing through the new flyer and noticed a Jockey underwear (women's & men's) deal for next Thursday August 8.
