THE COOKIE CRUMBLES & THEN IT ENDS UP AT TRAMPOLINE HALL.




Look! It’s an insane amount of cookies. They cost $36.25! From the Peek Freans Cookie Outlet.
I bought: 4 large bags of broken Garden Cremes, a cardboard box of Chips Ahoy, 10 sleeves of some weird type of tea cookie & a box of mint Oreos.
All of the cookies ended up together as the stage set for the Trampoline Hall lecture series on September 10th. The entire audience got to take home cookies after the show. 
What a Deal.



(Special thanks to Blanca Marcela L√≥pez for helping with cookie transport & set up)

DEAL REDUX

It’s been brought to my attention that not everyone understood the magnitude of amazingness when viewing The Amazing Heat Pack.

 Listen up guys, this is from a press release put out by Comfort Now:
Excitement for The Amazing Heat Pack product line was apparent at the 2008 ECRM, where retailers were abuzz over the only first aid product capable of producing instant moist heat therapy, proven to be the most effective treatment for pain relief. Unlike products that require pain sufferers to use a microwave or endure a 30-minute activation delay, a specially formulated chemical compound inside The Amazing Heat Pack independently heats in just 15 seconds and stays hot for 45 minutes.
I have re-edited my video, adding some slow motion sequences and additional titles. WATCH IT AGAIN.

Sunday July 11th was 7-Eleven's birthday. 07/11!
In Canada they turned 41. To celebrate: FREE SLURPEES.

7.11 oz. is actually pretty small.
But who can complain when it's free?
I was expecting banners and balloons, but no,
they were keeping this party quiet.
(P.S. Winnipeg has been crowned slurpee capital of the
world for the past 11 years. I used to live there.)

ANOTHER CHEESY DEAL!


Tray of Brie. $2.60!
This deal was sent to me by reader Rebecca Baran:
"I used to work at A&P (Dominion, now Metro) in my youth, so I can tell you that there is nothing wrong with this discounted cheese. The brie comes in a giant circular piece. So we would have to cut it into individual triangles, then wrap them in plastic and price them individually... Sometimes I would remove the giant brie from the fridge to cut, and then get distracted with other tasks, so the large piece of brie would slowly come to room temp and become melty. This discounted deformed brie is just mistakes from cutting up the giant brie."
What a Deal.
