The garage was really neat and I said to dh he should get the tire rack made up to store my winter tires on there. Yes that was some sort of fancy dancy tv in the garage!
(as always click on the photo's for more detail)
This is a doggy shower in the mud room, It took me a couple of seconds to click what it was. I suppose it's a handy thing if you have a dog, or even kids with muddy boots.
I love this sink, it was one of a pair in the master bedroom, and I could see those fitting in our house. Wasn't sure what exactly you would clean them with, I suppose something that is non abrasive?
I have to say we were disappointed this year with what was exactly on show. We have also clicked that before we make enquiries about anything we have to make sure they are willing to service our area where we live. It takes us a good hour outside of rush hour to get to downtown Toronto, probably an hour and a half in rush hour. So a lot of people won't even consider coming out to our area.
We want to try and get the basement windows replaced, but I had wanted to get a couple of quotes this time. So I think we'll use the local guys again.
This is a photo of the Direct Energy Centre where the show was held. That is the CN Tower in the back ground.
Next door to the Direct Engery Centre, is BMO Field where Toronto FC (Football/Soccer) play. Notice the big wind tower in the background.
Food is so expensive at these shows that we decided to have a late lunch and we had left the show by 1:30pm. So we headed into Brampton, and had fish and chips at the Heritage Restaurant. They have the best fish and chips around our area. They even had knitted tea cosies for their tea pots ever so cute, the same as this one. They have a lunch time special of haddock and chips for $5.95 and you get a plate full. We shared a dish of mushy peas, so guess we'll be "gassy" tonight...LOL
We also lucked out today, as Home Depot were having a 20% sale on all their interior doors, so we picked up the four closet doors. They should have been $89 each, we paid $71.20 each, so the savings nearly paid for one door. We could have done without getting these at this moment, but couldn't turn down that savings.
So tonight I am going to go through my bag of goodies I got from the Home Show, and read up on all the things we looked at. Oh and dream about what we could do if we had the money!!!
Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Savings Pot today?
Today's Money Saving Tip:
If you're going to eat out at restaurants, eat out on a lunch time, as more often than not it's cheaper and if you eat a large meal at lunch time, you probably won't want much to eat later on in the day.
Sorry I didn't get around to visiting your blog today (I am writing this Saturday night)........
