    Check out the Freshco sale on toilet tissue for $15 for 100 rolls.

    She might want to re-think that decision. While out of kindness and consideration, her hubby might have facilitated a stroke by not having sufficient exercise, in the first place. Maybe a little exertion, every now and then, can alleviate the underlying causes of strokes.

    The Freshco offer is only $0.15/roll. However, I have not used Compliments brand before and have no idea how rough it may be.

    I concur @HermanH that movement is necessary and it doesn't need to be a lot to begin with as any is better than none despite the pain. While pain is subjective I would encourage one to work through it as unfortunately I've seen what happens if you don't.

    $1.00 bag with 2 sleeves of green onions, 1 large gala apple, 4 bell peppers and 4 large tomatoes. I love it when they make bags up with a combo of fresh
    fruits and veg.
    They had JUST replenished the reduced cart moments before I pulled up to it.

    I also grabbed 2 of the Maple Leaf whole chx's. Each of them were under $7.00 and 1 of them is already Air Fryer roasted up and in the fridge. I feel I've
    knocked enough off of the to-do
    list today.

    Stay safe shoveling @coupon girl , you're so right that one day THAT age your neighbour is now will be us!
    @walkonby , great deal on the Walmart potatoes. Can you tell me if you find any bad potatoes in the bag? A few? Alot? Just wondering about Walmart's potato quality. Thanks!

    I have dealt with so much sickness the past few months it has brought my spirit down .I still went to my brothers open house dec15 and a 75th birthday last weekend .I thought should i go i am being honest with you even thou i have all my shots,but we have to live life right.

    My grandchildren suffered with their school work when they had to go online as they were so little in school just starting and ashlyn just couldnt do it (she has ADHD)On appointments little cara had to suffer thru high temps and sick 5 to 6 times the past few years as she wanited for an ENT specialist appt 1 and a half years .Finally she is getting her tonsils out soon they said .

    So ashley i do agree with you ,i have less motivation some days if that is because of the lockdown or old age i am not sure but i do know we need to listen to our bodies.
    @coupon girl , sorry about your grandchildren and school and COVID. They just said on the news that schools did not need to close. I hope your grandchildren find school better in the next few months.

    Life in Nova Scotia is busy. We have had dinner with my brother and sister-in-law 3 times and once with a cousin and his family and a dinner out with friends. We have only been here 8 days. And we still work so I am very happy for a long weekend. We have an event tomorrow late day so we will be up early to head into the nearest Home Depot and thatís about 45 minutes away. While in town we have a list of all our stops because this is not a trip we do weekly. I may try to pair this trip with work in future. But for now we are just trying to get the house in order.

    @Shwa Girl I always " sniff " on the open mesh side of the potato bags when I pick up a 10 lb. one. You can usually detect the freshness of what's inside. ANY hint of that
    putrid rotten potato smell and back the bag goes. It only takes one that is bad to quickly ruin the rest. Visibly I could see a good portion of the ones through the mesh too,
    so these will last. They're in the deep freeze storage room. It's not a freezer but oh my Lord it is as cold as all get out in there!

    @walkonby , I am with you and people think I am insane but I always smell the bag before I buy it because I was taught growing up "you will always smell a bad potato before you will see a bad potato."

    So many people ask me what I am doing and I explain some are like "oh good advice," others give me a little side eye.

    Good Afternoon Everyone,
    Bit of a slow morning here and I am enjoying it.

    I slept until 8:30 which compared to most people is like sleeping until sleeping in until 10 or 11 so I am happy. Normally I dislike sleeping in but I know I needed it I have been so tired all week and this is what long weekends are for.

    With that being said, I did take 2 Advil PM last night before bed because I do not know what was up but as I was making dinner oh my gosh my back just started to hurt and it just did not want to let up. Feeling all good this morning so it must have just been one of those things.

    This morning I was working on a crochet project I have been trying to work on all week but it has not been working with me. Years ago I made Mom and myself fingerless gloves so you can keep your hands warm but still type. Mom wants one but thinner for when she colours to cover her hand and protect it from rubbing on the table. The pattern I used originally is gone so I have been trying to recreate it but I have restarted 4 times now.

    This morning I think I finally got it, had to get a bit creative with some of my stitches but it finally seems like it will work, yay!!!!!

    Using up some random bits in the fridge for lunch, we had a small piece of Pizza Dough we are turning into a flatbread but it wasn't big enough for both of us. So I am using a random naan to make a second pizza we will split both. Normally, I would make veggie pizzas but today I was craving the pepperoni so grabbed a pack from the freezer.

    I also pulled out a bag of milk, we are going through our Milk quickly this week so I pulled a bag in case we want to do some baking or cooking with milk. I could run to the store but I do not want to. This is why I love my freezers and pantry.

    Happy Saturday Everyone

    Happy Saturday!

    Went out this morning on the hunt for a wash glove for when bathing the dog. Found one at Walmart.
    Checked out other items at the pet store. Was looking for an alternative for lotion for dogs nose. Burts Bee sells for $6.97 at Walmart and Canadian Tire. Pet store sells same thing for $11.97. And they didn't have any alternatives which is what I was looking for. Coconut oil it is!

    Found large bag of dog food reg $49.97 on clearance for $22 and it had a $10 off coupon on it! (Our usual kind was sold out) Only one available so I will be checking looking for this deal in other stores! Dogs loved it as I opened the big bag and mixed in their bowls as soon as I got home.

    Groceries put away (stocked up on $2 Special K for DS- Grabbed 4 boxes of a new kind today that I am pretty sure he will like)
    Gala Apples 3lb bag $2.99 Clementines $3.97 (think it was 4/5lb? was pretty big) English muffins for .99 (expire tomorrow- will cut them and pop in freezer and just pull as needed- we toast them so can go from freezer to toaster oven.)

    Had a bite to eat just now (2 slices from dinner leftovers last night- Mushroom/onion garlic sauce flatbread pizza-So good)

    Now heading out to grab latte's for my friend and I and heading to her place for a visit

    Have a wonderful Saturday!

    Rats, I never got that one but had a Flash offer to earn 125 BAM wys $25.00 at amazon, BUT it had to be paid for using the BMO credit card.
    I opted in since I was about to reorder 3 boxes of cat litter and 2 large jugs of dish soap. I WISH the total was just $25.00, but of course it was way more!
    Hey at least I saved on gas driving to a store and saved my back from lifting heavy items in and out of the vehicle. Silver linings.
