Costume Shopping made easy at Spirit Halloween

Still deciding what to be this year? Well look no further than Spirit Halloween.  With multiple locations across the GTA, you will find exactly what you are looking for.  My daughter bought her costume last night at the Mississauga store on Dundas, just east of Winston Churchill, and the staff was friendly, helpful but not at all pushy.  We had a great shopping experience.  They had a great selection of costumes in all sizes, including plus (for people like me who need a little more coverage…lol)! If you are short on time, they also offer free shipping on orders over $65. I checked a few online stores to compare, but found limited available sizes, and most plus are already sold out. At Spirit, you can try all the costumes on, and if you sign up for their email, you will get a coupon for 20% off.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

This Saturday it’s Cineplex Commmunity Day all across Canada.  Free movies and concession deals all morning long.  And to to top it off, 100% of all proceeds go to Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada.

‘Tis the Season…already??

Have you been to Costco lately?  You might think it was December 15th because of all the Chrismas items on the floor.  I always thought the rule was that holiday selling didn’t start until after Halloween.  Clearly rules are made to be broken!

Deal Shopping at Vaughan Mills

I spent a few hours at Vaughan Mills today, and found some pretty great deals.  Holt Renfrew Second Call has shoes at 40% off the lowest ticketed price, coats are an additional 30% off and winter accessories are 50% off.   I found a great pair of mens leather gloves that had a regular price of $145, marked down to $89, and then 50% off for a new sale price of $44.50.

I don’t usually go to this mall, and I was pleasantly surprised by the number of deals to be had!

Bordem Buster from Deal Ticker

When I saw this, I had to share.  If you have kids, then you’ve probably made at least one trip to Dave and Busters!  It’s fun for the whole family, and with this hotel deal, Mom and Dad can even score a break from their daily routine!


Daily Deal from Deal Ticker

For anyone who has teenage daughters, this deal might be for you (or them).  My daughter is always asking to change her hair, and lately, it’s been all about adding colour (did you see Brittany’s hair on X-Factor last night)?

This will definitely get two thumbs up from my 13 year old, and it’s a low-risk, temporary way for me to be a  “cool” Mom!
