8004500 - little two month baby playing in a carseat

We transport a lot of things in our vehicles on a day to day basis, but nothing is more precious than our children! Despite having survived bouncing around the back of a station-wagon without a seat belt as children, every parent now understands the importance of car-seats! Whatever car seat brand you decide on, there are some universal Safety Tips for Car Seats

  • Choose the best type of seat for your child’s age, weight and height. Generally children will be REAR FACING from 0-2 years, and then FORWARD FACING until they reach the top weight or height restriction set by manufacturer. At that time they can graduate up to a BOOSTER SEAT
  • Always check the car seat expiry date
  • Back Seat is the safest place for children
  • Always use the Top Tether with a Forward Facing seat
  • Keep straps around child snug & tight
  • Movement of properly installed car seat should not be more than ONE INCH in any direction

Britax

No doubt you have done your homework, and for many parents the choice is Britax, the #1 Brand in Safety Technology.

Now until Friday April 7th 2017 you can save 20% on Britax Car Seats at Well.ca while supplies last.

4 Questions You Should Answer Before Buying Running Shoes

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

38906006_s

Choosing the best Running Shoe is more than selecting a style and color that you think looks good. Feet come in a variety of shapes, and Running Shoes are designed differently to accommodate these differences, to give you the most comfortable run possible.

Here are 4 questions that you should answer before Buying Running Shoes

  1. Where are you running? Running on the road/pavement requires a different shoe than running on trails. Traction and Stability are designed differently.
  2. How do your Ankles roll? If they roll in you will require a shoe with extra stability and motion control. If they roll out you will want a shoe with cushion and flexibility. Not sure which way they roll? Generally people with higher arches roll out and people with flat feet roll in
  3. How do you tie your Laces? If your shoes are uncomfortable it might just be the way you tie your laces. There are a variety of lacing techniques that can alleviate issues such as toes curling, Blisters caused by excess heel movement or sensitive areas on the top of your feet caused by high arches .
  4. Are you wearing the correct size? It is best to have about a thumbnails length of space between your toe and the front of your shoe to allow for running downhill and normal swelling caused by running.

You should now have a good foothold for shopping online for Running Shoes. Right now until Tuesday April 4, 2017 Nike Canada is having an End of season. Save Up to 30% off new markdowns.

PRO TIP! Once you have purchased your shoes, open your calendar and create a new event titled BUY NEW SHOES. On average, a Running Shoe lasts 500 – 800 kms. The average runner will do that in 3-4 months. Thank goodness for Cash Back Rebates!!!

HACK: One Small Appliance to Replace All other Small Appliances in your Kitchen

Recently I downsized in house size and am very happy with the decision, but there was one area that I really felt the squeeze, and that was kitchen cupboard space. My counter-top sat lined up with small appliances and there was just no place to hide them all. Since I couldn’t GROW the kitchen, I had to make the selection of kitchen gadgets SMALLER.

The idea of tossing so many handy tools was not easy, especially since I would be needing them again. I went to Pinterest in search of storage ideas for all of these machines, and then I found it! IT! The one appliance that replaces over twenty kitchen items.

Introducing the KitchenAid Stand Mixer

kitchenaidSTANDMIXER

This beautiful invention is not just for baking. There are many accessories that can be attached that let it transform into something much more useful than simply a “mixing bowl”.

Slice and Shred

Meal prep for the week is a snap with the slicer attachment. Veggies for lunch boxes, stews and casseroles can be quickly sliced and diced.

KITCHENAID SLICER/SHREDDER replaces: Bulky Cutting Boards and Finger Shredding Graters


Beat It

Your personal trainer might approve of the arm power required to mix by hand, but your arms will remind you the next day about what a bad idea it was. Mixing big batches of cookies and cakes is no sweat now.

KITCHENAID BEATER replaces: Hand Mixers, Whisk, Wooden Spoons


Whip Up a Frenzy

Every kid knows that the yummiest recipes always end up with being allowed to lick the whip after. Whip up cake icing, whipped cream, ice cream, and other delicious treats.

KITCHENAID WIRE WHIP replaces: Wire whisks that get tangled in the cutlery drawer


Straining and Grinding

A cupboard filled with homemade jams, jellies and apple sauces and a fridge storing a jug of fresh squeezed juice is so comforting, but the process of preparation can be a strain. Not anymore with the Straining & Grinding attachment.

KITCHENAID FRUIT/VEGETABLE STRAINER/GRINDER replaces: Juicer, Masher, Strainer, Blender, Food Processor


You are off the Hook now

The Kitchenaid Dough Hook attachment will take your culinary skills to the next level. Fresh breads, pizza, and pasta are on the menu regularly now!

KITCHENAID DOUGH HOOK replaces: Rolling Pin


Here is a Juicy Idea

Say goodbye to juices filled with added sugars and fill the kitchen with the scent of fresh squeezed oranges by making your own.

KITCHENAID CITRUS JUICER replaces: Juice Maker


I scream, You scream….

…now we can all scream for ICE CREAM! With as few as 5 ingredients, fresh churned ice cream can cool down those hot summer days.

KITCHENAID ICE CREAM MAKER replaces: Ice Cream Maker


This is just the beginning of all of the amazing things that the KitchenAid Stand Mixer can do. It really is the one small kitchen appliance to replace all others.

Right now until April 5 2017, HomeDepot.ca will save you $100 on a KitchenAid Stand Mixer – Now $299 – While Quantities Last. Earn 2.5% Cash Back Rebate from Great Canadian Rebates and maybe put those earnings towards some fancy new attachments.

My new Kitchenaid Stand Mixer has left me with lots of cupboard space now, and to be honest, it is far too beautiful to hide away. It seems that my new house-warming gift to myself was both functional and decorative!

Eight Tips to a Closer Smoother Shave Every time

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

 14734448 - young  smiling woman shaving legs, with  smiley in foam

It might just be a false alarm, but we certainly have seen some “Spring-Like” temperatures here in Ontario over the last week. Yesterday I even saw a woman wearing a skirt with bare legs. BARE LEGS…..that means it’s time to blow the dust off of the razors ladies.

Great Canadian Rebates went to Dorco (technologically advanced and superior quality disposable shavers, shaving systems and shaving accessories for men and women) and gathered some shaving tips that ensure the cleanest and closest shave – who knows, if you follow these tips you may even be able to put off reaching for that razor for an extra few days…

  1.     Wait 5 to 10 minutes after jumping in the shower to shave. The warm water will relax the hair follicle, lifting the hair for a closer, smoother shave.
  2.      Many websites suggest exfoliating before shaving, but it is actually not necessary. Shaving, in itself, exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells
  3.     If you are out of shaving cream you can get the job done with hair conditioner, it helps the razor glide smoothly over the skin. Remember to rinse the blade really well, as it can clog and dull.
  4.     The best way to avoid nicks and cuts is to always use light to medium pressure when shaving. If you find yourself having to apply more pressure to get the job done, it’s time to switch blades.
  5.   Did you know that Underarm, leg and bikini area hair all grow differently. Get a more comfortable shave by using the correct razor for each area; ie: your bikini area will benefit from a different razor than your legs. The Dorco common docking technology allows for you to mix and match your Dorco blades. Try different cartridges to find the right one.
  6.     Stop sharing the razor with your man!! This practice is unsanitary and can lead to infection. It’s ok to use a man’s razor, but not the razor being used by your man.
  7.     Change your razor cartridge every 7-10 shaves. A dull and uncomfortable shave is a sure sign it’s time to replace. A dull blade can also lead to nicks and cuts. OUCH!
  8. Let’s talk Facial hair and unsightly upper lip hair.  You can have pain-free and precise brow shaping with the Dorco Shai eyebrow razor, which can also remove lip hair in one to two strokes.

Until March 31, 2017 get $10 off #30+ Order at Dorco. Use Coupon Code MARDUSA17. Dorco’s goal is to deliver an exceptional shaving experience. Great Canadian Rebate’s goal is to help you save money with a 7.0% Cash Back Rebate on your Dorco purchases.

How a Video-Game can Inspire and Educate your Children

*This Post Contains Affiliate Links

28691182_s

Family Day in Ontario is quickly approaching, and most parents will get a day off with pay enabling them to spend time with their family and loved ones. For the few that must go to work, and even for many who will be at home, the Video-Game debate is bound to happen. My kids LOVE video-games. As a mom, I have a love-hate relationship with video-games……..I love the quiet time it gives me to enjoy a cup of coffee, but I hate the idea that my kids are turning in to little zombies as a game basically controls them for hours.

Now, there is an answer that both Kids and Parents can love. MINECRAFT!!

46303834_s

When my kids first asked me if they could buy the Microsoft Minecraft for xBox, I wondered if we had time-warped back to 1982. Basic pixels being moved across the screen to build things didn’t seem interesting or challenging. Think virtual LEGO. As popularity grew around this game I saw that it was capturing the imaginations of kids and adults, and I started to read up on it. What I discovered is that this is a video-game that could boost my children’s grades and improve their social skills, with as little as 30 minutes an evening.

Many classrooms and Home-Schooling parents are using Minecraft-based learning to teach everything from Math, to art, history, and language. When played in both Survival Mode or Creative Mode, Solo or Multi-player, Minecraft brings a lot of challenges and skills to the child, without them realizing it because they are having too much fun.

The way that Minecraft uses the little squares to create and build are introducing Geometry concepts.  Manipulating the shapes and space has the potential to make geometry easier to understand, which in the long run will help your child answer science and math equations.

With Minecraft, Kids are in control, not the game. As the players let their imagination take over, amazing developments happen with their Creativity and Confidence. Putting the decision making in to the hands of our children allows them to set goals, develop a plan to reach the goal, and motivate themselves achieve it. This mom can definitely see how this will help kids succeed in college and future careers.

English & Writing skills are really used in Multi-player mode. Players must communicate and work together using the chat section. The use of chat to collaborate with other players also develops social skills.

As you can see, Minecraft is a Video-Game that can Inspire and Educate your Children, and the number one reason that I am a fan of my children playing this video-game for hours?? There’s No Violence.

This Family Day, when your child asks if they can play Minecraft all afternoon (and you know they will) remember all of the useful, practical skills they’re gaining. And because Family Day is all about spending time with the ones you love, go ahead and pour yourself a cup of coffee, sit down with your kids, watch them play, and get involved with what they’re learning and doing! My favorite thing to create? Rollercoasters! Try it, it’s kind of cool.

Don’t have the Xbox One S Minecraft Favorites Bundle? Grab it from Microsoft Canada, and Celebrate Family Day with Big Savings! Ends : Monday Feb 20

Foulproof Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

*This post contains affiliate links

50528720_s

It’s the time of year when Cupid, arrows, doves, love birds, roses, and hearts are everywhere! Historically this day of love sees more than 36 million chocolates boxes and more than 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards being gifted. That’s a lot of love!

If you are wanting to express your warm fuzzy feelings for someone, and are coming up short on gift ideas, Great Canadian Rebates and Amazon.ca have some Foolproof Gift Ideas for Valentine’s Day

CandyBasket

There is a way that you can look at giving your loved one a basket of chocolate as actually being a HEALTHY gift. Did you know that a study published in 2010 in the European Heart Journal found that adults who ate chocolate over a span of 10 years had lower blood pressure and a 39 percent lower risk of having a heart attack or stroke compared with those who ate the least amount of chocolate.

Electronics

100 years ago a lady had to wait months for a letter from her lover to be delivered. Today we can receive emails & text messages throughout the day to make our heart swoon. You can now keep that electrical connection going with Chargers, Power Banks, Fujifilm Instax Mini 8s and more.

Beauty

Your partner is the most beautiful in your eyes. Did you know that Scientists say that it only takes 4 minutes to decide if we like somebody, and that it is the face, not the body that determines attraction. Amazon.ca has everything your Valentine loves using to enhance that beauty that captivates you.

Fashion

Who doesn’t love a new sweater, leggings and matching bag?? Here is an idea that will leave a lasting impression……ask your crush out for Valentine’s Dinner, then, deliver a beautifully wrapped box the day before with the outfit they should wear on the date waiting for them inside. It will leave them speechless, and have their friends talking about it for weeks!

HomeKitchenGarden

They say that Love starts at Home. Maybe the way to her heart is with a perfectly brewed cup of coffee. Does your man love the outdoors? A Gas Outdoor fireplace would totally make him HOT! A perfect plan would be to stay home this Valentine’s Day and get things cooking in the kitchen. Gifts from the Home, Kitchen, Garden department at Amazon.ca are truly Romantic.

GiftCards

Is your True Love a New Love? You say your Valentine hasn’t been in your life very long? How exciting, but what do you get for someone you are still getting to know? Gift Cards are a way to gift them a world of possibilities. You can even personalize the gift card with photo of your choice. Selfie Time!!

After months of dreary grey weather I can’t think of anything happier than a day dedicated to making someone you love feel good about themselves. Let Amazon.ca help you express your love, and let Great Canadian Rebates express their appreciation for your membership with a Cash Back Rebate on your purchase.
