Seen Around

Last week after our return from New Hampshire, I was in NEED of a huge supermarket and big box store visit.

While living in suburbia I would stop at the Maxi & Cie store (Canada Superstore)3 or 4 times a week. I loved that you could get a bag of milk, fill out the prescriptions and buy a sweater all at the same time!

Here in the city (Montreal) the HUGE super markets and big box stores are in the periphery and since I live more in the center i don't have access to these wonders....

So before our shopping trip I packed some snacks, because you never know!

  We originally bought this lunch box at a garage sale a few years back.
It was filled with View Master reels...
A few month ago I had to save it from the trash because Dan
said we never used it!

 Apples, Cliff's bars, seaweed snacks...
We are set!

 I am betting this will be the 2015 Must Have in
exterior lighting. It is a projector that projects flurries on
your house!

 Lanterns and systems to keep your decorations well
organized, as if!
 I do like those decorative boxes to give cookies...
 Lights yum!

 The lighted pine cones were my faves!

 I also saw a limited edition Pyrex display at Walmart.

 I loved the turquoise measuring cup....
I had to promise not to buy any....
Dan gets nervous just at the sight of the word Pyrex!
Oh Well!

I love it, taking a lunch box for a trip to a big box store! Sounds about right even when you live close to one! Love the little Pyrex bowls!

I wonder why he shies away from Pyrex (she giggles) tee hee! I am a sucker for looking at all the new Christmas stuff - that is why I created the "Buy no more Christmas Crap campaign" so can only buy used or 1 low value item per year - saved me a ton of money over the years. It's still fun to look at though and I agree, those pinecone lights are pretty cool.
