      so we went to the Balzac Mall just outside of calgary ( LOVE this outlet mall) and we went to the coach outlet store and got a really good deal, and bought my girls coach bags... 

       

      for the groomsmen, we got them white oakley gascan sunglasses.. we figured it might be cool for pictures and such on the wedding day... we got the FI a pair also, so all the guys have them... 

       

      i am worried because white sunglasses may not look good on everyone? i dunno!!! lol

        So, I had a pretty successful day of shopping...did great with coupons and found a few other wedding-related items I thought I would share.

         

        Not planning on luggage tags, but found these cute bright initial tags at Homesense for $2.99 for a couple of key players in the wedding:

         

        IMG_0004.jpg

         

        Found these super-size bulletin boards at Homesense ($39.99)...they've just come out in the last 24 hours (it's kinda scary that I know that!).  Plan to use them at the ATR for posting table seating arrangements or displaying some of our favourite photos.  I've propped them up against the door so you can see how large they are.  Not sure which colour I'm keeping yet:

        IMG_0005.jpg

         

        Couponing...so much fun!  Free box of granola bars (coupon was on the back of a cereal box), free box of dishwasher tabs (mail-in rebate) and here's the story with the Aveeno.  London Drugs had the body wash on sale this weekend for $5.99.  In their larger "savings flyer", they had an offer of, "buy an aveeno product, get a free lip therapy product".  London Drugs has a highly competitive coupon policy, and is one of the few places in Canada that allows you to "stack" coupons (meaning, if you have three different coupons with three different UPC codes, they will accept them all)!  So, I had three DIFFERENT coupons where when you buy 2 aveeno items, you save $3.  Which means, I buy 2 aveeno products (2 X 5.99 = 11.98) and they accepted $9 (3 coupons X $3 off) worth of coupons for those two items.  So, long story short, for $1.49 I got one bottle of Aveeno body wash AND a free lip balm.  They were all out of balms, so they gave me a raincheck.  I had enough coupons to buy 16 bottles of body wash and get 16 balms for free.

        Now, my next mission is to get the Dollaramas on board here with couponing...they told me that they will be accepting them soon, but couldn't tell me when.  I have 8 coupons for $1 off Hawaiian Tropic products, which means I could be getting those bottles of HT sunscreen they've had for quite some time for $1!

          Apparently many of the Dollaramas out east have been accepting coupons for a while...the exception is the coupons that you print off online...I don't think they take those.  Although I did read a story of a woman who used the $3 online coupon for Polysporin to Go, and used them at Dollarama for the $2 item, and they allowed her to apply the overage (difference of $1 in her favour) to the rest of her purchase.  OMG...that would be sweet.

              Oh gee, I totally forgot about this break-thru as well.  I have been looking for CLEAR plastic scoops, tongs and pinchers to use at our AHR for the candy bar.  The clear scoops have eluded me for MONTHS...I have looked at dollar stores, department stores, kitchen wholesale stores, at home and during my trips to the states.  I walked into Peppers (I think they're all over Canada) and found them...four sizes with the largest being $2.99.  I nearly kissed the girl behind the till...she said "yeah, I've heard they're hard to find".
