Where to buy books for cheap in Canada?

You might be looking for Canadian sites where you could buy books for cheap. In this post I am going to offer you three options with their inconveniences and advantages. In the end it will be up to you to decide which one or ones to use for your book purchases.

First, I will have to agree that smartphones and tablet have replaced print books only partially. Even though they are telling time and again that print books will go extinct, I don't think that will ever happen. For instance, I cannot use cookbooks or photography books from my Android tablet. I want to have such books in their usual, aka print format.

Second, buying paper books (well, electronic ones too!) is not cheap. Luckily, we can get some savings when we buy books online. Here are three options to books for less expensive when you purchase them online.

Amazon Canada

No one can compare themselves with Amazon.ca when it comes to choice and volume. You can find virtually any book on Amazon.ca. From that perspective Amazon.ca has established itself as the largest book store ever!

Being big and working online have their own benefits: you don't have to pay all those costs that regular brick-and-mortar stores incur. Therefore, you can afford shaving off a couple of dollars to offer some savings to readers.

For instance, these 2 fresh cookbooks are priced reasonably on Amazon.ca.


The Oh She Glows Cookbook: Vegan Recipes To Glow From The Inside Out

Price on Amazon.ca: $14.67
Price in store: $29.00

Chocolate Purdy's - One Click Away

Easter is coming and you cannot go without Easter bunnies! Chocolate Easter bunnies are a must for us and our friends. During the last two years I decided not to buy cheap ones, but add a couple of dollars more to make sure the bunnies are made of good chocolate. Well, the kids were happy!

This year around I am trying Purdy's chocolate. I bought it a couple of times in the past and have a very positive feedback on the quality of Purdy's chocolates. 

I was pleasantly surprised when I learned that Purdy's chocolates can be bought online. I am also happy I have an opportunity to mention about it not only to my circle, but also to the readers of this blog. With the coming of Easter, let's see how we can satisfy our sweet tooth... 

Read on if you are already salivating. There will be more yummy images!

Invest in Coins with Royal Canadian Mint

If you are trying to figure out ways to diversify your investments, here is another one to consider seriously: investing in Royal Canadian Mint coins. Let's look at coins as an investment tool. Read on to see a couple of important techniques behind coin investing.

First off, I will cover what you don't want to do when it comes to buying coins for investing purposes:

1) Don't buy coins immediately from TV shop. Shop around!

From time to time we see coins sold on TV (a pretty widespread practice in the US). You want to be really careful with TV shops. Before you take out your credit card and give it to the dealer on the phone, shop around. There were plenty of evidence that TV shops inflate the price of coins. Same exact coins could be bought from your local coin dealer for less expensive.

2) Don't buy immediately from private mints. Shop around!
Yes, you might fall on private mints. There were warnings issued in the past that some private mints issue coins with quantities of precious metals much lower than advertised. So, before buying from a private mint, check this mint's reputation online.

So, what do you need to do if you are ready to invest in coins? Well, in Canada you would go to the Royal Canadian Mint. The Royal Canadian Mint is a Canadian Crown Corporation, 100% owned by the Canadian Government. But what to buy from them so that it's a good investment? Read on!

How to Organize Your Coupons

If you arrive to this website, you are probably an active user of coupons. You have probably collected between 5 to tens of coupons. The question is how to organize these coupons so that it’s easy to retrieve them at the right moment.

You don’t really want to fall into a situation when you have plenty of coupons, but they expire because you forgot about them as they were hidden from your sight and your mind.

My best advice to you is: Keep things organized!

Organizing coupons is my bread and butter. I would not say that I am a discipline freak, but I try keeping everything organized. When it comes to money (yes, I consider coupons as earned money), I know it’s good to have a good system to handle all the “paperword” coming my way from coupon inserts, internet-ordered and printed coupons.

I’ve seen and used these 2 methods of organizing coupons.

5 Best-selling Products on Amazon Canada

From time to time I buy electronic products and books on Amazon.ca. I find that the services of Amazon have improved these days compared to, say, 2011-2012. This is great!

I also prefer browsing online when it comes to electronics simply because I can easily compare products and read comments from people. Well, I will be honest - I go to 2-3 sites to compare prices before even considering buying the product. Amazon does not always comes as my winner. Still, Amazon.ca is a great market place where you can find real pearls!

Canada's Baby Store Selling Out Target's Inventory

It's sad that Target had to exit Canada. But, to tell the truth, Target always experienced difficulties after its entry on the Canadian market. It's main problem was about logistics. How many times did we go through empty shelves in the local Target just to turn around and head out to the closest Walmart. Well, the stronger survived.

We all now know Target is saying its final farewell to the country and will be welcoming us only when we cross the border. Now Target is selling off its inventory through a network of local partners.
