In Ontario, the snow has not yet arrived and I am dreaming of a white Christmas. The only thing I noticed the other day gathering out our winter gear in preparation of the white stuff, Mommy is in need of a new pair of winter boots. Buying quality winter gear is something us Canadians are very familiar with.
December is not the month I typically like to splurge on the season’s related expenses. We all know the holiday season can drain a savings account in the blink of an eye. We need to be thrifty and find ways to save money on the things we need.
When you need winter boots and live in Canada, you need winter boots. Even if Christmas is only less than a week away!
This time of year, I try my best to make the most of the season and get thrifty with ways to save money on the season’s related expenses beyond just gifts. We need to get thrifty with travel, salon visits, holiday décor, entertaining, home goods and more!

Since I need winter boots anyways,this purchase was more than a want, it was a need. Plus, when you are saving $90 off a pair of Windriver winter boots, you run to the checkout!
This past spring, I lost 30 lbs and dropped 4 sizes. Each season since, I have been having to replace my oversized wardrobe. So I wasn’t surprised when I went to put on my wool winter dress coat and I could have wrapped it around myself twice.
In the spirit of giving, I donated my beloved oversized wool coat to a local charity. Which means a new coat could be something the kids could wrap up for Mommy this Christmas?
After a quick check on RetailMeNot.ca I couldn’t help but notice Banana Republic was taking 40% off your whole purchase! Without using RetailMeNot.ca I would have missed out on these huge savings and this fabulous wool coat.
After a quick browse through Banana Republic I find the perfect wool coat. The Heritage Colorblock Coat was already on sale from $439 and with the Canadian savings and promo code I found on RetailMeNot.ca my total savings was $287.22! Plus, shipping was FREE and it will be here in time for Christmas.
Thanks to the savings I found on RetailMeNot.ca I am officially ready for the white Christmas we all have been dreaming of. It is time to sit back order in dinner.
Using RetailMeNot.ca I found that having dinner tonight with Boston Pizza you can save 50% off your second pizza with purchase of any medium or large pizza.
This trip around RetailMetNot.ca I spent under $250 including; winter boots, wool winter coat and dinner for the whole family. With a savings of… drum roll please…. over $377
