Frugal Tunes

By Adz on August 26th 2012 in Frugal, Tips & Tricks

I hate paying for music. I understand the artists work hard, but I think they are fairly well compensated for what they do. I really resent purchasing an album for just one song. So what’s the solution – How can I get the music I want for free? There were no options really, other than either buying the songs you want or pirating them (getting them from file share sites… (Read More)

Compost Tea

Compost Tea

By Adz on August 19th 2012 in Backyard Farming, Frugal, Tips & Tricks

In order to make our fruit and vegetables grow without using chemical fertilizers like miracle grow (the miracle being that they still sell this $%&* at stores considering how bad it is for you), we use compost tea to fertilize our garden. Compost tea is made by sinking compostable items like grass and nettles into water and letting it develop nutrients and bacteria that helps flowers, fruit, and veg thrive…. (Read More)

It was a great night that Cait and I got to spend together. My work paid for everyone to play a round of golf and bring an extra person for dinner.

We don’t often get to go out together for long so it was great to be able to enjoy each others company – thank you… (Read More)

Going out of business sales

Going out of business sales

By Adz on August 8th 2012 in Frugal

We stopped by Zellers today. A truly Canadian store that’s not been able to keep up with the beasts like Costco and Walmart. As a result, all of their stores are either converting to target (American) stores or just closing down. It’s a shame because I really like Zellers. You can usually pick up some pretty good deals. It worked out well for us though! Everything was 40-80% off. We… (Read More)
