    ...but, I've just added hours, and hours, to my day for...zombie hunting!



    Hey, hey, hey!


    As many of you may have heard, Metroland Media is in bankruptcy proceedings. They’ve stopped flyer distribution – which means, no more visits from flyer guy! And, no more sneak peeks from cyn88canada. (Me). 😉


    Wow. It’s the end of an era…for me, at least! I had no prior notice, just the news that came out on Friday. While I was expecting flyers to stop at some point, I had no idea it would be so soon. (Or I would have kept more of the flyers, since I used the old one as kitchen garbage bag liners…now, I only have a week or two’s worth…ugh!! grumble, mutter, bah).


    It feels like just yesterday that I started with the sneak peaks…but, I just checked…and I think I started in 2015! Wow. We made it through so many ups and downs, coffee depravations, zombie attackes, countless inane blurbs, cats stuck in the tree…okay, okay, maybe not the last one…let’s just say, it’s been a fun ride! I’m so grateful for many things. (NOT the SDM flyer…lol!) Team Cyn! Coffee Patrons! Coffee Daze! The strange things that made the uploads…less challenging…lol.


    Anyway…if I get a flyer via Canada Post early enough, I’ll post it if I can so folks at work or who won’t get the ads til later can still get a “sneak peek”…of sorts. And, I may still poke me head in and blurb away somewhere…because I just got new glasses, and omg, I am at the stage where I need bifocals/progressives, whatever you call it…! I can NOT read with my new glasses. But, I cannot see distance without them…! And, my high prescription, elbow length is “distance”….arrrrgh. Sheesh. It’s all a lie. Growing older is NOT growing wiser. Growing older just bites. NOW I understand the appeal of Eternal Youth elixirs. Ha ha ha. (Hmmm…I seem to have gone off on a tangent…what a surprise…where else can I do this?)


    Thank you to couponlady who will, no doubt, reliably and consistently continue to bring Smart Canucks the official flyers when they are available. (I’ve been loving the aigoo flyers!) Thanks to everyone who has sent me coffee, coffee icons, a thumbs up, constructive criticism, coffee angels, coffee, coffee, coffee…heh, do we sense a trend?

    Be kind to yourselves. Be your own best friend! The world will be a better place if we start by making ourselves better.

    Cheers!

    @cyn88canada

    This sucks! I am sad now. Part of my daily routine in the early part of every week is to look through your sneak peeks of the grocery sales.
    We almost never get flyers until Thursday afternoon ( through the Scarboro Mirror ) and so often one or more of the grocery ones is not there!
    Aggravating to say the least, but now I am wondering if we will no longer get flyers at all?

    Just a quick "head's up", I sometimes visit:

    https://flyers.smartcanucks.ca/

    on the Smart Canuck forum, for flyers I don't get. Couponlady usually posts the mainstream flyers ... Wednesday? When they're available. Some of the other stores get updated at the same time, or (early) Thursday...whenever they become available. I've been happy to see aigoo, my local Asian grocery store, have the flyer posted before the store site has it up.
    It's allllllll digital now. Unless Canada Post is delivering them. (I don't know...they had SDM, No Frills, the Brick in a plastic baggie, so maybe they have the flyer contracts...or, maybe they've just stopped printing flyers entirely...)

    Stay well!

    Yup, The Scarborough Mirror I just learned is part of that elimination. I was unaware. So very sad for me as I don't own a cell phone.
    Price matching will be impossible now as I'll have no physical flyers in hand. This will mean going to each store to get whatever they have on sale I guess?
    Another First World Problem I'll get over.

    We were not getting the local paper for the past 3 weeks or so, but flyers are being delivered to all houses on Thursdays. There's still a chance that you will get the flyers, without the local newspaper.

    My brother in law feels that his price matching saves him enough money to pay for his phone. So maybe with checking into it. I used to take my iPad before I got my phone and as long as I had looked at the flyer at home and put item on my list I could price match without having any data. If you got a cheap cell phone even with out a data plan you could still use it to price match doing the above. Maybe worth looking into!

    Thanks Cyn for all your flyer posts over the years! It was great to get a sneak peak for planning purposes. I was worried that something happened to you so am glad that it just a matter of not getting flyers.
