Each week, experience our top 3 deals & steals that have been selected for you, whether it be shopping, food, or just tips on how to save some money!
This week BC’s gas prices and hydro prices have gone up, so our deals & steals will highlight how you can save some money to offset these rising costs this Spring. Don’t forget April is Earth Month as well & time to do some spring cleaning!
- Gasbuddy.com – Before you hit the next gas station, make sure to either visit Gasbuddy.com or download its app to find the closest gas station (or your preferred gas station brand) with the cheapest price! You can even contribute and add prices you see at the pump so others can take advantage of them. Jake wrote about them back in 2016 – you can read the article here. Now’s the time to use them more than ever now. Can be a difference between 1.55 and 1.49!
Note: I’ve noticed prices tend to be higher first thing in the morning and gets cheaper towards the evening, in particular Tuesdays-Thursdays. Weekends and Monday mornings tend to be a bit crazier, especially in Vancouver proximity. If you’re closer to Abbotsford or Point Roberts, hit them up as it’s cheaper outside the GVRD. I filled up on Sunday in Point Roberts for $0.99 cents USD/litre = $1.30 CAD.
- Costco West – I love shopping at Costco, especially when they have sale items – spring cleaning here I come with sales on paper towels, laundry detergent and toilet bowl cleaners in bulk! Check out Costco West Fan Blog, they share with Costco shoppers the sale items each week and coupons of the week that Costco hands out at the door. It allows you to get a sneak peek without having to maneuver the busy aisles looking at each project to see what is on sale or clearance and what is regular price. This site is so handy for when I make my Costco shopping list as well. For example last week, Costco West posted that the Lysol Toilet Bowl cleaners x 4 pack was on sale for $7.49 = $1.87 per vs retail price $2-5 depending on where you buy them from. Make sure to visit their blog for their Facebook page so you can Like and Follow as well.
