Smart Saver

It’ Sunday and it’s time for Smart Saver. Here are a couple of tips for how to get through your week without having to spend a whole lot of money. But of course you also want to enjoy life. no problem. Check out these suggestions.

Check out some of the most delicious burgers, waffles and doughnuts in town for prices that you won’t believe. Everything for the price of just $5 or less! Let me give you an example. At 1391 East 41st Avenue you’ll find Duffin’s Doughnuts. This place is open 24/7, and is selling burgers and of course doughnuts for under $5… fantastic! Check out a longer list of different places to go for cheap eats here. If you’re not so much into burgers, waffles and doughnuts then have a look at Ninja Bubble Tea. This is the place to go if you want to get yourself a nice bubble tea for a reasonable price. Bring a student card and you’ll save extra money. The Ninja Bubble Tea store is located at1696 Robson Street.

After a filling yourself with delicious doughnut you probably want to get a bit of exercise 😉 No need to worry. You don’t have to pay a fortune for this. Just go to Robson Square where the public ice rink is now open. It’s for free if you bring your own skates but you won’t have to pay more than $4 for skate rentals. Check out this site for more information.

Finally you can finish off a great and cheap week by taking advantage of free wellness workshops at Polo Health + Longevity Centre on Saturday, December 13, from 10am till 2pm.

Hey all,
The weekend is coming up soon and we have some cool events in Vancouver, Whistler and Toronto you have to check out!


This Friday Critical Mass in Vancouver
Critical Mass is a grassroots reclamation of public space — a bike ride and skate — held the last Friday of every month. You are invited to enjoy the safety and comfort in the car-free space that will be created by simply riding together! Bicycles, skateboards, rollerskates, self propelled couches, and any other form of human powered locomotion are all welcomed! They ride around the city wherever people want to go – this is decided collectively – the length of the ride depends on enthusiasm and is also collectively decided. No one who comes is forced to or needs to break the law in order to participate.  Meet 5 to 5:30 at the Vancouver Art Gallery, leave at 6pm; Critical Mass in Vancouver.
