Knock Knock…. Who is there?….. It’s the ghost of HALLOWEEN! Yes people, that’s right, it’s just only 3 weeks until Halloween. That means houses will be decorated again, people will dress up, kids will go trick or treating and parties will be held. Since dressing up has been fun ever since we were kids ( let’s be honest probably everybody dressed up when they were a child) a lot of you are may considering to buy a Halloween costume. To help you out a bit and to also make sure that you save some money to spend during the amazing Halloween party, we listed down some Halloween costume shops where you can buy fun and cheaper costumes.

Value Village

Value Village is a Halloween costume shop located at E Hastings St and Victoria Drive. They are the perfect store for people who do want to buy a costume but are on a budget. They have a selection of second hand costumes and a lot of D.I.Y. tips.

They are open from 9 am to 10 pm everyday, except Sunday, when opening is at 10 am.

Just Imagine Costumes

Just Imagine is a store located on Granville Island in the Kids Market. They do not really have a lot of cheap costumes but they do have some costumes on sale which are a pretty good deal.

They are open from 10 am to 6 pm, 7 days a week.

Seasonal Halloween stores

When Halloween is coming closer there are also a lot of stores opening and selling Halloween stores. Those are most of the times only open for the season but you might also want to check out Shoppers Drug Market, Rexall, London Drugs, Dollarama, Dollartree etc.

Do it yourself

And if you are a very crafty person D.I.Y. is always a good thing to do, just buy a white t-shirt cut some holes in it and add some fake blood and you are good to go!

Hope you all will join us next Saturday during our own Halloween shopping!

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!!

Experience IT Review – Vancouver Jazz Festival

On Saturday we had a great day in the sun at the Vancouver Jazz Festival and on English Bay Beach!IMG_4332.jpg

We met in front of the London Drugs on Georgia Street and when everyone arrived we decided to get some lunch first. So we went to the Pacific Centre, where there was a stand with people holding a canoe over their head and taking pictures. So we decided we wanted one too and ended up looking very Canadian.

After we got our lunch in the Pacific Centre food court we went to the Vancouver Jazz Festival. This festival takes place every year with venues all over town and this weekend there was a free event at Robson and Georgia. We went there, sat down in the sun and listened to the music.

After a while we were all really hot from sitting in the sun so we decided to go to English Bay Beach to enjoy the rest of our day. We all got matching beach towels at Dollarama and relaxed in the sun.

Thank you all for coming and I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT!

Craving for something cheap? Then this is the right place for you! INTERNeX has been busy all week searching for good promotions or cheap places to share with you.

Used to getting coffee in the morning? A small speciality coffee is only $1 at the Mc Donald’s at the moment, so it is definitely worth it to switch coffee shops for a while just for this promotion. This promotion started at the 23rd of January and will last till the end of this week, so use this moment to enjoy a 16467040_1625292964152815_2118773967_ncheap coffee for once. Getting used to having coffee at the Mc Donald’s after this promotion? No worries, if you buy 7 coffees, you get the next one for free. You only need to keep the reward card and put the stickers from your cup on it. The reward card is also on your cup! Besides this promotion the Mc Donald’s is also offering digital coupons, which you can download from the site. However, you can also download the Mc Donald’s app for weekly promotions.

Today it is wings Wednesday, so that means you can get wings for a cheap price at restaurants all over Vancouver. The cheapest price that we found is 33 cents per wings in the Famous Warehouse. However, it is also worth checking out when it is not a Wednesday, as all their meals are $5 and therefore a good choice to go to if you want to go out for dinner, but already spent a lot of money.

Not into a coffee or food? At Cinema Public House and The Butcher & Bullock got $2 Tuesdays, when they offer beers for $2. So that means you can get wasted without spending too much money. Almost sounds too good to be true, right?

If you have not found the Dollarama yet, you definitely have to check it out as well. You can almost get everything at Dollarama, from baking forms to food and much more. If you need anything for your housing, first check out Dollarama before going to another place, as it can save you lots of money. Dollarama, your best friend from now on!

Every dollar counts, so keep these tips in mind when spending your money!

It’s time again for another Smart Saver. Don’t you also miss those stores where you can basically buy everything and it’s really cheap as well? Well you should have a look at the shop called Dollarama. There are a lot’s of the shops around Vancouver, one is located at the Richards and Cordova Street. Personally, I think this store is great. Masses of stuff and nothing too expensive. The prices depend from $1 between $4 and you can find there everything.

 
Check it out.

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver- Where and what to buy in Downtown

Our student´s budget are not that big and I am pretty sure that we all prefer to spend our money enjoying Vancouver that buying in the Supermarket.

That´s why I think is important to know the cheapest places and the correct ones to buy the differents products!

One of the most affordable supermarkets in general in town is No Frills. The price of the same products can be around one dollar less than in other supermarkets, and they have always specials deals every week! There are different locations; you can find one in downtown in Denman Street.

Another good option if you like chocolates, candies and snacks in general (I know what I am talking about…haha) is to buy them in Dollarama or that kind of discount shops! You can buy the same piece of chocolate for less than a dollar and for just 1.25$ you have so many items!

In Shoppers Drug Mart sometimes they have such a good deals!You can buy beauty products of popular brands that originally can cost 50 dollars for just 10…

And in general all the area around Chinatown is where you will find the better prices in Downtown!Like for example in the Sunrise market!

To sum up:

If you are a sweetie person, go to Dolarama, Dolar Store or that kind of shops to buy cheap chocolates bars.

If you are looking for good prices in general, visit the nearest No Frills supermarket!

If you need some nice products for your face, hair and in general beauty staff, keep an eye to Shopper and its special offers for limited time!

If you know where to buy you have the chance to save some money and spend it for example partying with us! It sounds great, isn´t it?

Cheers,

Irene
