A few odds and ends that have caught my eye. And some examples of how it sometimes sucks to be Canadian, usually only where shopping is concerned as living in Canada is fantastic … ahh umm ok back to the subject at hand.
Item #1 – Belkin Mini Surge Protector
Why is this $11.89 on Amazon.com and $19.49 on Amazon.ca??
Item #2 – City of Joy movie
This is one of my favourite movies and I want to share it with my kids. I put it on hold at the library over 18 months ago. It seems like they can’t find their only copy. I am debating purchasing it.
Amazon.com – $5.80
Amazon.ca – $5.51
Item #3 – The Power of One movie
Another old favourite. A copy can not be had at the local library. 😦 It is only recently that I learned this movie is based on a book with the same name.
Amazon.com – $18.48
Amazon.ca – $89.29 (no this is not a typo) 😦
Item #4 – Lifefactory 22 oz glass water bottle
In recent years I have become more skeptical about what is going into the plastics we use day in and day out. When given the option I will avoid plastic and cans. BPA is something I am actively trying to avoid. To make matters worst just went I was starting to feel like drinking from BPA-free plastics was good enough I read this article that made me squeamish all over again.
Amazon.com – $15.75
Amazon.ca – $24.20
Item #5 – Tervis 24 oz water bottle or tumbler
The elephant is just so cute. I love double walled glasses and if these weren’t plastic they would be part of my kitchen. It took a lot of restraint when I was in BB&B a couple of weeks ago. Lucky for me these items were out of stock. I am a huge Steelers fan and contemplated going to a different BB&B to get this mug. But time was not in my favour at that time and given my recent experience with BB&B, I will not be back.
Amazon.com total* is $45.06 with free shipping.
Amazon.ca total* is $89.19 and if I add $5.51 more of merchandise I can get free shipping. 😦
*The above totals are based on buying The Power of One used.
