I have to say that coming up to Father’s Day weekend, I’m supremely dissatisfied with the sales this week! I would have thought that I would see great sales on steak and meat in general. I know, I know that I’m falling into that stereotypical thinking that all men want a whole side of beef for their day but come on! How many men do you know that really enjoy a good steak? I don’t think that I’m that far off.
So when you go shopping this week, don’t expect a great deal on beef. Walmart does have a special on some however it doesn’t seem available online which happens regularly with them. Shame on you Walmart.
I base all of the pricing on Walmart because despite their terrible advertising practices (see previous posts), I can compare prices online. If I list it below, that means that it’s cheaper than Walmart. If I don’t list it but it’s in the flyer, Walmart has a better price.
Some of the sales are soooo close, it’s not worth driving all over the city. Pick a couple of stores, make a list and save some gas.
Everyone outside of Canada, skip to after the stores for shopping advice!

There’s BIG news in the grocery world! I have already advised you to sign up to Ebates so you can start to earn money back from your online purchases. I have also told you that Amazon seems to match Walmart’s pricing on pantry staples and household items. This is good because Amazon is affiliated with Ebates while Walmart is not. That means you can earn some money back buying everyday things! Woo-hoo!
Now though, NOW Amazon has taken over Whole Foods! This is HUGE in the grocery world! With Walmart and Loblaws offering online shopping and Amazon joining the game, online grocery shopping is hitting the fast lane! I have looked on Amazon and all of the pantry items such as Kraft salad dressings ($1.97), Hershey’s baking cocoa ($4.58), Heinz ketchup ($2.47), Bick’s pickles or Helman’s mayo ($3.47), Robin Hood flour, toilet paper, paper towel, cleaning supplies ect ect are matching Walmart so why not shop where you can get some money back?
Here is the link for Ebates again. I earn a $5 referral fee if you use my link but I don’t really care if you use my link. I just want everyone to save money! For those of you outside of Canada, Ebates does have International sites.
Happy shopping everyone!
