Amazon Shower Curtain, A Good Online Option

Picture of shower curtains to highlight that you can go to Amazon and get a shower curtain.

Amazon has a wide variety of shower curtains to buy. They also have a wide range of prices from very economical to more elegant or high end. You might not think of Amazon as an option when it comes to buying a shower curtain. However it has some advantages over other home and bath stores. Here are a few.

The first is convenience as it is a lot easier going online to Amazon then driving to a store to look for curtains. Second, even though a lot of home and bath stores have online shopping themselves, they usually do not have the same inventory as amazon. So it might be harder to find the type of shower curtain that fits your bathroom. Lastly, Amazon offers a wide range of curtains at cheaper prices then most places. So if price is an issue, then Amazon is a great option.

Amazon Shower Curtains Online

Here are a couple of options that are currently available at Amazon below.

Wimaha Fabric Shower Curtain Liner Water-Resistant, Machine Washable, 100% Polyester, Perfect for Bathroom Stall Bathtub Tub, White Leaves, 72 x 72

CAROMIO Waffle Fabric Shower Curtain Water Repellent and Mildew Resistant Bathroom Shower Curtain with Rustproof Metal Grommets Top 72×72 inches Plaza Taupe


If you are looking to purchase a shower curtain, then Amazon is the place to go. Besides the large variety they offer, they also have quick delivery. Also, in a lot a cases the delivery is free, especially if you are an Amazon Prime member. That is good savings for the pocket book which is always welcomed during these unstable times. Stay safe everyone.

The glorious cookie! (Or, if you’re British – biscuits!) It’s a delicious, sweet snack all wrapped up in one small package. It is just about the perfect accompaniment to a cup of good tea or coffee. If you’re a home baker – and more of us are than ever before – and you love to try out new cookie recipes, then you need a handy spot to keep your home baked creations. That’s where cookie jars come in to play.

True vintage cookie jars can be found by:

  1. Raiding your Mom’s or grandmother’s closet or pantry.
  2. Visiting lots of garage sales and yard sales until you find just the right one.
  3. Heading to the thrift store and snagging the perfect, retro jar.

But, during the pandemic some of those options simply aren’t options at all! So, if you’re looking for a vintage or retro style cookie jar, we’ve found some that we think you’ll just love. They have an old-fashioned, traditional style that you’ll be eager to fill with lots of freshly baked cookies. Of course, cookie jars also make an excellent gift for someone who loves to bake. In fact, cookie jars are a very popular gift year round. Please note that prices are current at time of writing, but can change at any time.

5 Tips to keep Cut Flowers Fresh Longer – Frugal tips and hints

A beautiful bouquet of flowers is a real treat! It brightens your home, and adds a lovely splash of the outdoors into your indoor space. You don’t need a special occasion to splurge on flowers, since they are a real pick-me-up any time of year. And those beautiful blooms are especially appreciated once the garden is finished for the year – which here in Canada comes quite quickly! So, how do you make beautiful fresh cut flowers last even longer? You know that here at BargainBlog we’re about making every Canadian nickel stretch further…so here are our best tips for flowers! And look at the end of the article for our favourite tip on finding cut flowers for 50% off!

1. Spray them lightly with water

Mist them – That’s right! Simply use a spray bottle set on a fine mist setting, and spray the flowers with water morning and night. We were recently watching an old episode of Escape to the Country (Find it for free on YouTube – it is one of our favourite shows!) and a flower arranging expert said that this was his best tip! Just be sure to use a bottle that hasn’t had any chemicals in it before, or if it did, be sure to wash it out very thoroughly with hot water and dish soap. Fill with cool tap water (filtered water would be even better) and spray those blossoms and blooms every morning and night. The floral expert said it could help make your floral bouquets last up to five days longer! Wow!

2. Cut flower stems properly

I think most people who love flowers will have learned this a long time ago. But, if you’re new to buying flower bouquets, you might not know. Trimming the stems of flowers and other greenery that comes with the flowers will help it to stay fresh and beautiful a lot longer! Use a sharp pair of kitchen shears or scissors. Cut off an inch or two from the bottom of the stem, and cut at a 45 degree angle. Rather than cutting straight across (a 90 degree angle), the 45 degree angle allows exposes more surface area of the bottom of the stem. Exposed to what? The water of course! And if your flowers are able to drink in more water, they’ll simply last longer.

3. Use the flower food enclosed in the bouquet

If you bought your bunch of flowers from a florist, then it’ll often have a little packet of flower food enclosed within the folds of wrapping paper. Use it! People sometimes ask: ‘Does that flower food really work?’ Yes, it does! Simply sprinkle the packet of flower food into the water in the vase before adding your flowers.

Do you wonder what’s actually IN that flower food? Interestingly, the packets usually contain a combination of sugar, an acidic component, and bleach in a powdered form – all ingredients that will help your flowers look their best.

4. Add Fresh Water – AKA Change the water

People often forget that – just like our pets – flowers really enjoy a slurp of fresh water, rather than a stale, days-old drink! With that in mind, you can change the water your flowers are sitting in. (Also be sure to pluck off any greenery, such as leaves, that are below the water level. It can cause mold to grow!) Cool tap water or filtered water is ideal. You can change the water daily, if possible, or at least every couple of days.

5. Refrigerate your flowers

Florists use this tip constantly – that’s why their beautiful creations and luxurious bouquets are stored behind glass in a refrigerator. You can do the same at home! Granted, you’ll need a rather large fridge to pull this off. (We do not have this! haha Our fridge would be swamped if we put a bouquet of flowers in it.) If you have a monster sized fridge, then simply pop your bouquet of cut flowers in the fridge at night. It’ll keep the flowers fresh and lovely a lot longer. Then when you wake up in the morning, display them as you had them before. Voila!

We hope these fun tips have helped inspire you to keep those lovely blossoms fresh and beautiful for longer. When you spend the money on a nice bouquet of flowers, then you really do want them to last! If you have other tips on extending the life of cut flowers, please let us know.

Find Cut Flowers and Bouquets at 50% off

P.S. Bargain Finders Tip: I’ve often found stunning flowers at the supermarket marked down at 50% or more! So, if you want to treat yourself to some flowers around your home, check the floral department at your favourite grocery store. You could even ask when the flowers are reduced, and time your grocery shopping trips to match the markdowns. Yes! Floral beauty at a much cheaper cost.

Tresanti Adjustable Height Desk – Work from Home Essentials (Sit and Stand Desk)

Tresanti adjustable height desks have been incredibly popular ever since the pandemic began. Why? With more people than ever before working from home, they also need essential office furniture, such as this high quality desk. The best feature of this desk is, of course, the ability to work at it while either sitting OR standing. This popular work from home desk consistenly receives a 4.5/5 star rating – so customers just love it.

5 Benefits of Working while Standing

But why even bother with the extra cost of a standing desk? Medical researchers keep finding more reasons why working while standing is so much better for your health:

  1. People who stand while working tend to have lower rates of obesity. Standing means you’re up and active!
  2. Standing may lower your risk of heart disease.
  3. Standing while working may increase productivity. It’s not known exactly why, but perhaps when you’re up and moving around more – and the increased blood flow that creates – it helps the brain keep active and creative.
  4. Standing while working sheds more calories than sitting at a desk. One study found that the mere act of standing burns 88 calories an hour. Who knew!? That is the simple act of standing, but when standing you’re more likely to move around a bit more, meaning even more calories could potentially be burnt.
  5. Standing can improve posture. We all know the tendency to hunch over our laptops when we’re working on them from home without a proper desk. Standing at your desk means less strain on your back, and seemingly a better posture.

Knowing a few of the benefits of a sitting AND standing desk combo, I went on a hunt to find if Tresanti adjustable height desks are currently available online. Given the current supply chain crisis, I was genuinely curious to see if it was even possible to buy one of these desks right now. It is! Yay! As of today there are still Desanti desks available for purchase.

Tresanti Adjustable Height Desk on Amazon

I found the Tresanti adjustable height desk in black available on Amazon. There are still 4 left in stock as of time of writing, with not too bad a wait time for delivery – fastest delivery is in as little as two days. For free shipping, you’re looking at approximately a one week delivery time.

Here are the features of this desk that makes it so ideal for working from home:

  • 4 programmable height settings (cool, right?) Allows you the ability to work comfortably while either sitting or standing. And yes, it’s healthy to be able to stand sometimes (or all the time) while you’re working on your laptop.
  • Black glass top desk with a black metal frame. Will fit in with pretty much any office decor you have. (If you’re looking for a desk in white, I found this one with excellent reviews and a lower cost.)
  • USB chargers power up to 3 devices at once!
  • LED touch control on the glass desktop
