This Crazy Weather! From Parkas to Bikinis!

The winter in the GTA has been so mild--it is the warmest I have ever experienced in my LIFE.  We had no blizzard, major snow accumulation or low weather drop.  Not once did I feel the need to jump ship and head south to warm myself!

Take a look at some of our pics from March 2012.  We had one 5-minute snowsquall on March 9th, which was the most snow we received all season.  And then the weather was clear again and the snow all melted in 30 minutes!  What an easy winter! 

And now, on March 21st and 22nd we have had such mild days (+25°C ) that are in the backyard in swimsuits!  Love the crazy Canadian weather!

Just take a look at us only 13 days later on March 22nd!  No snowsuits, parkas, mucklucks, etc.  Yes, this is the same Canada as pictured in the other photos.  There may be mud on the ground, no leaves on the trees...but the swimming pool is out and all are having fun!  Our summer in March :)

Could YOU Save a Life? David Geneen Stem Cell Drive!

David Geneen (center) with his two sons Julian & Daniel
When I first heard of the David Geneen stem cell drive in Toronto, I did not know that this father, husband and uncle was dying in my very own city.  I also did not know that with a quick and painless cheek swab, a stranger could be the match to save his life. 

Right away I got to thinking.  What if  my husband, children or I were ever in need of a stem cell donation?  We could die waiting for a stem cell match from a stranger.  For not only must a stranger be willing to donate stem cells, he or she must be a proper match for the recipient.  And a stem cell match is only found 30% of the time in a recipient's family, and 70% of the time from an absolute stranger!

After researching on the internet, I learned there are millions of willing stem cell donors worldwide (19 million), but there are only thousands in the Canadian database (3300 to be specific).  And there are 962 people across Canada looking for a stem cell match--or they will die.  Many Canadians have already died waiting for a match. 

Then I learned that David can be completely CURED by a stem cell donation.  He suffers from Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), which is totally curable if an appropriate stem cell donor is found.  My family and I decided to come forward to help David Geneen. 

That is why my family and I are taking action and joining the David Geneen stem cell drive this upcoming Sunday March 25th 2012 in Toronto.  Chances are that we will not be a match for David, but if not for David, maybe for one of the other 962 Canadians waiting for a stem cell donation (this number includes infants and toddlers).  My husband and I are going to get swabbed to see if were are a match for David.  We also plan to make a charitable donation at the time.

How can YOU help?  If you are in the Toronto area, please come by and get swabbed to see if you are a match for David Geneen.  If you are a male from 17-50 years, you are especially needed.  Also, if you are of Sephardic, Jewish, or Southeastern European decent, you could be David's match.  Regardless of gender and ethnicity, please come out to support the David Geneen stem cell drive.

Even if you are not a match for David, you could be the match of one of 962 other Canadians who will die without a stem cell donation. 

If you are not in the Toronto area, you can still be a prospective stem cell donor.  Just contact www.onematch.ca/ to receive a cheek swab kit mailed directly to your address.  If you are not a Canadian resident, you can still join the stem cell registry in your country.  Contact your location blood donor services for more information.

Please join the David Geneen stem cell drive on Sunday:

Date: Sunday March 25th, 2012 from 12:00-4:00pm
Location:  Holy Blossom Temple, 1950 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5P 3K9

2012: Year of the FREE Canadian Coupon!

Have you ever had coupon envy when watching the Extreme Couponing tv show on TLC?  Up until recently, a $700 cart full of groceries for FREE had only been possible in the USA.  Notice we said until recently.  True, we Canadians have no double coupon days and we are not allowed to stack coupons, making real savings difficult.  But we are going to discuss the savings you can achieve buy using FREE product coupons alone (FPCs).

We already blogged about the plentitude of Facebook FREE product coupon giveaways, but we did not discuss how Canadian shoppers can walk away with a shopping cart of FREE groceries.  We at SnyMed certainly have done FREE $60-$70 shoppings with regularity.  Let's talk about this now.

2012 truly is the year of the FREE Canadian coupon!  Never before have there been so many FREE coupons available--and for popular grocery items too.  It is one thing to have FREE product coupons for plug-in air fresheners, and another to have FREE coupons for milk, yogurt, cereal, bacon, bread, eggs, chicken, pies, chocolate and more!  This is what Canadians have been seeing in recent times.

This is the first year ever that marketing budgets in many Canadian companies are larger for Facebook FREE product coupon giveaways, than their budget for print advertising or direct mail.  This is an exciting trend for the cost-aware consumer, and with a bit of organization, FREE groceries can be had by all.

During Facebook giveaways, the only stipulation (usually) is that FREE product coupons are available ONE per Facebook USER.  Therefore, all family members with a Facebook account would be eligible to claim a coupon.  Unless there is a stipulation that there is only one coupon per household (read the terms and conditions).  This is the same of FREE product coupons offered elsewhere, such as on a company's consumer website.

So, how to acquire a stockpile of FREE product coupons outside of Facebook and their original source?  FREE product coupons are usually gone quickly, and many miss out.  Therefore, many coupon trading forums will allow you to trade for the coupons you need!  Common items to trade on these forums are regular discount coupons (for every product under the sun), FREE product coupons, postage stamps, iCoke codes, Disney Movie Rewards codes, Pampers codes, Huggies diapers codes--even small denomination gift cards. 

Frugal Shopper Canada and Smart Canucks are two different Canadian websites that offer active coupon trading forums.  If you look around a bit, there are many other coupon trading sites.    

So you may wonder, who would trade a FREE product coupon?  It is FREE afterall--why would someone not use it!  The answer is simple: some may not use the product in question (due to personal preference or allergies), the product may not be available in the specific geographic region, they may have duplicates of the same coupon--or they may just wish to trade it for another coupon they want more.  

Happy FREE couponing, Canada!

Modeling Liv & Lily Charcoal Beanie

Our son did some modeling for Liv & Lily in January, and he really enjoyed himself during the photoshoot.  We thought he did a great job, especially considering it was his very first time.  Liv & Lily were really nice to all the kids and made them feel at home.  (Buy Liv & Lily Beanie.)

Modeling Liv & Lily Fedora

It is amazing that through modeling you see your child's confidence shining through.  As parents, it has filled us with joy to see what our son could accomplish when he set his mind to it.  (Buy Liv & Lily Fedora.)
