Smart Saver Vancouver

Today we are going to talk about how you can save money on something that everybody needs…..Groceries!

One of my favourite stores to go to is called Dollar Tree. This fun company has a lot of different stores in Vancouver. Everything in the store is $1.40 or less!! I always buy things like laundry cleaners, toothpaste, deodorant and shampoo there, because it is way cheaper than in most drugstores.

Besides Dollar Tree there is also a kind of similar store called Dollarama which also offers a lot of different stuff only the difference between Dollar Tree and Dollarama is that at the last one there are also things that are above $1.40.

7136715909_402a304f7c_zWhen it comes to food, No Frills is a good option to get some cheap groceries, especially if you take a look at their own brand called “No Name” which are the cheapest products they sell.

But if you don’t feel like cooking then The Warehouse is a really good and cheap place to get some food and drinks, since all meals are $4.95. Also Commercial Sushi at Commercial Broadway is a very good option. At Commercial Sushi they have a Sushi Special, this includes a Miso soup and 3 different sushi rolls you can choose of the selection they made.

Hopefully you all will save some money on your daily shopping with these tips. Hope to see all of you at the PuB NiGHT tomorrow!!

Review: PuB Night @ the dime

Yesterday we went for another PuB Night to “the dime”. Even though the dime is not right in the centre of downtown but at commercial drive, lots of people showed up and we were a nice large group.

The dime has this great offer where all their food is only $4.95 so nearly all of us had something to eat. Some even had not only one but a few dishes. Even though the price is cheap the portions are not small and everything tastes really good. On wednesdays they even offer  “25ct Wings”, so I had a bunch of wings with BBQ and honey garlic, which was awesome!

We had lots of fun together and talked about great things we want to do as soon as the weather gets better again and about our upcoming trips to Victoria and the Rockies. So lets cross our fingers that the next days are getting better again (the weather forecast says so!!) and that we can do lots of fun activities!

Next week we can go to a Pub and then and enjoy the Celebration of Lights firework together afterwards. Hope many of you want to join us for this. Check as well our upcoming trip to the Rockies out!!!

And remember that our office will be closed on friday next week (1st of august). Enjoy the rest of your week!

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Save Vancouver

Well, bad weather is back, and this a good new! Why? Because we don’t have to take care of our figure anymore! Throw your bikini out the window and let’s go to celebrate with a list of places where you can eat for $7 or less. Sounds impossible? Continue reading!


The Cambie

We already went many times to this place, located in Cambie Street. Perfect for students, big tables to hang out with all your friends, good music, the food is really good… and the pitchers over there are one of the cheapest that you can find in Downtown. In fact, the last time we went there, I found the following notice at the door:

I asked the gatekeeper if this was a joke. He looked at me with a very serious expression and he told me: “Of course not, girl, is The Law”. Ok, no more questions for the gatekeeper.

But today is not about beer (we already have too many posts about beer, I guess) is about food! You can eat until 6 PM!

The Metropole

We have our pub night today in this place! Today is hockey night, and they have a very good food deal: $ 6’49 Burger & Beer! Not bad! We will tell you more about this place tomorrow.


The Warehouse in Hastings

Annika’s quesadillas

Everything on the menu is $4.95! We went there in our last pub night and I have to say that the food is delicious. You have a lot of options to choose: quinoa wraps, burgers, chicken wings, poutine… and the decoration is… curious.

Mysterious Lamp

What about this lamp? Isn’t it very funny?

Take care!
