Buy Bulk spices online in Canada – Money saving grocery tips

We’re all trying to keep stocked up on groceries during this pandemic, and yet we’re also trying to keep within our grocery budgets, too. Not an easy task, bargaineers! And one thing I’ve noticed that can be insanely expensive during our weekly jaunts to the grocery store is spices.

Whatever type it is: cinnamon, basil (which, yes is an herb!), parsley, nutmeg, cloves…and on and on. Any type of dried herbs or spices can be very expensive, especially when we’re just shopping at one store right now. (We have, in fact, discovered one store that is pretty quiet early in the mornings. So, we just shop there, and only one time per week. But boy, are their spices PRICEY!!)

So, I discovered some online choices that will allow you to buy your dried herbs and spices in bulk and save a LOAD of money! You could even buy a bag or two and share with a friend to save even more money.

1 pound bags (454 grams) of Organic Cinnamon


Splendor Garden organic Cinnamon Ground,454.0 Gram
This is an awesome deal right now! (As always, prices on Amazon can change quickly, so snag this deal while you can. I am too!) We go through an awful lot of cinnamon – to sprinkle on homemade lattes, to add to oatmeal in the morning, and to use in baking. So, this 1 pound bag is a great deal. $10.85

Half pound bags of Organic Thyme (227 grams)


Splendor Garden Organic Thyme Leaves, 227 Grams is another great bargain by Splendor Garden! A great big bag for only a bit more than a fancy (and tiny) jar would cost you in the supermarket. Thyme is a wonderful addition to all sorts of savoury cooking, especially roasted meat or tomato sauces. $10.99

Organic Basil Leaves (dried) – Large 1 pound (454 grams) bag


Splendor Garden organic Basil,454.0 Gram
Basil is one of my very favourite herbs to cook with! I put plenty into any homemade spaghetti sauces I’m making, and it’s also delicious added to homemade salad dressings or dips. This big bag is on for only $16.30 – a bargain!

Large 1 pound bags of Organic Ginger Powder


Splendor Garden organic Ginger Ground,454.0 Gram
Yum! Dried ginger powder is an essential ingredient in scrumptious homemade baking like gingerbread cookies, ginger cake, and spice cake. This large bag will last you a long time! $13.43

Storage Tins and Jars for your Spices

When you buy bulk herbs and spices you definitely save oodles of money. But, since they’re not sent to you in cute little jars or bottles, you’ll need a few options on how to properly store these spices. Remember to keep your spices in a cool, dry place to retain the flavour and intensity of the spices the longest. All of the containers we chose are highly ranked for sealing well, which means your spices will stay fresh longer.

12 Pack Bernardin 125 ml Mason Jars with Labels


Bernardin 20125 125ml Regular Mouth Mason Jar, Clear – Pack of 12
You can’t beat a well made Mason jar! These useful jars are just perfect for storing large quantities of spices. Plus, they come with cute decorative labels to properly label and organize your new spices. $8.99 for a pack of 12

Stainless Steel magnetic spice jars and tins – pack of 12


Bekith 12 Pack Magnetic Spice Tins Multi-Purpose Storage Tin, Clear Top Lid with Sift or Pour, Magnetic on Refrigerator and Grill.
If you’re short on space, these magnetic spice jars might be exactly the solution you need! You can literally fill them up with your favourite spices and herbs, and then store them on the side of your fridge!! And, this is a great gift for a grill master – they can keep all their favourite BBQ rubs and spice blends in a tin and store it on the side of the BBQ! (Awesome, right?) These jars have openings on the side so you can just shake out the spices, rather than having to open the tin up. And, this set comes with 144 labels. Can you tell I really love these? Ha! $26.99 for a pack of 12 with 144 labels

I hope our post helped you snag an amazing deal on some dried herbs and spices. Instead of paying up to $10 for a small jar, you can pay around the same and get about ten times the amount! That is a huge grocery bill savings, and we can use all the savings we can get right now.

Buy Pur Gum online in Canada – Xylitol gum

I absolutely adore Pur gum and mints. Anyone who knows me knows that I always have a large bag of Pur gum in my purse. (True story: my little nephew, who was three at the time, saw bags of Pur gum hanging in a store. He excitedly pointed to the bags of gum, and screeched at his Mom: “Auntie Tina!” So…I might even have a slight addiction to the stuff. I’m not ashamed, I’m not ashamed.) And, anyone who ever needs a piece of gum always knows who to come to! I not only stock up on the stuff, but I’m pretty happy to share it with anyone else.

I became such a fan of this stuff a few years ago, when I realized that by chewing gum with aspartame all the time, I was actually consuming an awful lot of aspartame! I had mostly taken aspartame out of my diet via other things – like pop or foods – but I still was consuming it by chewing gum. So, I love that this gum tastes delicious, doesn’t have sugar OR aspartame, and is in fact good for your teeth! Xylitol is a natural sweetener that inhibits the type of bacteria that causes cavities. So, chewing Xylitol gum can help to strengthen your teeth, and prevent cavities! (But – an important warning here to pet owners. Xylitol is POISONOUS to cats and dogs! If you have a pet in the house, please keep any xylitol products stored up high and well out of their reach. We want to keep our little buddies healthy and safe.)

If you’re looking to break your addiction to aspartame gum, then search no further! Pur gum actually tastes good, and I find that it stays nice and chewy for longer than some other types of xylitol gums. The flavours are awesome, too!

Here are my favourite Pur brand gum and mint varieties:

PUR Peppermint Mints
PUR Peppermint Mints are the ones that have a nice, strong peppermint flavour. If you want to get rid of your coffee breath, these will do it! They’re not overpowering either, they’re just right. $2.79 for a pack of 20

PUR Sugar-Free Cinnamon Gum Bag
PUR Sugar-Free Cinnamon Gum is my favourite flavour of Pur gum! I’m a sucker for a delicious cinnamon flavour, and so I often have a bag of these stocked in either my purse or cupboard at home. $4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces of gum

PUR Sugar-Free Gum Bubblegum Bag
PUR Sugar-Free Gum Bubblegum is an awesome way to chomp on some bubblegum without any sugar in it! Reminds us of our childhood…Or, a fun flavoured gum to give to your kids! (I don’t think they’ll actually be able to blow bubbles with it though.)$4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces

PUR Sugar-Free Spearmint Gum Bag
PUR Sugar-Free Spearmint Gum Bag is actually the type of gum I have in my purse ALL the time. I find that the nice, milder mint flavour of spearmint is just perfect for everyday chewing. (Ha! I just said everyday chewing.) And, the Spearmint variety also seems to stay nice and chewy for the longest time. So, it’s my top choice for overall Pur gum winner. $4.99 for a bag of 55 pieces of gum

Great flavour, no sugar or aspartame, stays soft and chewy longer. Check, check, and check. Stock up on some of this delightful stuff, and even your teeth will thank you.

Amazon Deals Canada – Buy Groceries online #coronavirus #covid19

Last night, I heard a knock on our apartment door. I was sure I heard it, but then there was just silence. I thought I must’ve been imagining something. I do have a good imagination after all! Then, this morning when my husband was going to wander outside to take out the garbage (funny what constitutes an exciting outing nowadays!) he nearly tripped right over that telltale smiling brown box that meant a shipment from Amazon was here!

Yes, I do rely on Amazon groceries right now. We do our once a week grocery shop at local grocery stores, but I supplement this with some online grocery shopping. I used to get some supplies on Amazon anyway, so now when we’re stuck inside, it’s easy to order there occasionally.

Tips for Ordering Groceries on Amazon during coronavirus

There are some new tips for ordering online groceries through Amazon right now, in this unprecedented time in which we live.

  1. Order quickly – Of course, you can still put an item into your Amazon shopping cart and hold it there until the next time you plan to place an order. But, I’ve discovered the hard way that doing that means the item might be out of stock by the time you’re ready to order! So, be quick and decisive when you really want something Amazon currently has available.
  2. Order a little extra – No, there’s no need to hoard. But, if you are allowed to purchase multiples of an item you use all the time – let’s say granola bars – then buy those extra boxes of snacks while they’re available. You’ll be glad you did if they’re not available again for quite some time. (And sometimes – like our grocery deals of the day listed below, you have to order a minimum quantity. In this case, it’s 2 of each item.)
  3. Check supplies on Amazon often – Even within the same day I’ve seen major changes in what grocery items are available. So, check a few times. Then, when you see what you need – order it! (As we already mentioned in #1, above!)
  4. Be patient – Order times are longer right now, meaning it’ll usually take at least a few extra days to receive your parcel. Please be patient. I think of the Amazon workers and delivery drivers who are slogging through all of these additional orders, and my heart truly goes out to them. Be willing to wait longer to receive your orders. And then, be grateful when they arrive! (I sure am! And as I mentioned in our Should I Disinfect our Groceries? post, I wipe the box and all items inside down with a Clorox or Lysol disinfecting wipe.)

Today’s Best Amazon Deals on Groceries – April 9, 2020

Like I mentioned above, snag these while they’re still available! Stock runs out quickly. (And sorry for the boring looking text only links – Amazon wasn’t allowing me to post pictures of the products for some reason! We are part of the Amazon Associates program. We will receive a small commission when you purchase groceries via our links. We thank you!)

Daiya Gluten Free, Dairy Free Macaroni and ‘Cheeze’ $6.99

Prana Organics – Dark Chocolate and Organic Foods – FREE SHIPPING anywhere in Canada – No Minimums #StayHome

PRANA - Healthy Snacks, Organic Foods & Natural Products

PRANA is best known for their incredible packets of dark chocolate snacks. (Is it just me, or are we all especially excited to stock up on chocolate right now? I’m not lying when I say that chocolate even seems to be sneaking into my breakfast each day!) One of my favourites is their Algarve dark chocolate bark with almonds and sea salt. That small addition of the sea salt makes the combination the perfect balance between sweet and salty, and I keep dipping my hand into the bag for more!

#StayHome – Order Prana Chocolate online FREE Shipping with No Minimums

To ensure that you have a full chocolate stash to get you through this self-isolation, Prana is offering FREE shipping across Canada with absolutely no minimums. (I think this is one of the best shipping bargains I’ve come across yet!) So, load up on a few bags of their delicious snacks. Beyond chocolate, you’ll find organic trail mixes, dried fruit, nuts, and even nut butters. (This can be a handy place to order nut butter right now, if your local grocery store stock is still gone.) Their nut butters are: almond butter, pistachio nut butter, and hazelnut butter. (YUM!)

FREE DELIVERY anywhere in Canada with no minimum to help you #StayHome!

Prana’s online store remains OPEN for business. They are considered an essential business, because they sell food. Definitely pop by and take advantage of their generous shipping offer. Stay home, bargaineers, and stay safe. And add a little dark chocolate to your life, just because.

Calgary Grocery Delivery – Getting Safe Groceries during Coronavirus

Not very long ago, a quick trip to the grocery store was just a normal part of our day. Forgot a simple ingredient that you needed for that new recipe? Perhaps it was a lemon, or a head of fresh garlic, or a bunch of parsley. No problem! You could just quickly hop in the car or walk over to your favourite local grocery store or even farmer’s market, get what you needed and just head home.

Haven’t things changed quickly? And in a way we never would have expected? Grocery shopping now isn’t the simple pleasure it used to be. I used to love lingering over the fresh produce, selecting the most delicious looking apples, melons or peppers. But now – in the time of coronavirus – grocery shopping has become a necessary task, but one that can fill us with fear and anxiety.

Today, then, we will discuss some ways to ease that stress and keep safe from the virus while grocery shopping – by using grocery pick-up and grocery delivery services. That way, you don’t even have to leave the comfort and safety of your home!

Grocery Delivery services in Calgary

Thankfully, the Internet provides us with so many options to grocery shop online! Simply visit your favourite store online, and fill your virtual shopping cart and then arrange a time to either pick up your groceries, or have them delivered. Please keep in mind that stock may be limited, or even unavailable – especially on hot items like (you guessed it!) toilet paper, Lysol wipes and canned goods like beans or tuna.

  1. Prairie Farms in Willow Park Village – is a family-run produce market, previously operated out of the Calgary Farmer’s Market. You can order all your fresh produce here – their prices are great, and the produce is second to none. (Last fall, during apple season, their Ambrosia apples were literally my favourite thing to eat. They were as fresh as possible, and gorgeously crisp and delicious. The best apples I’d eaten in years!) Support a local business for your produce (and they also sell local farm fresh eggs, and locally and ethically produced meats.) And our small local businesses sure could use a hand right now!
  2. Real Canadian Superstore – This large supermarket offers both pick-up and grocery delivery. With current events being as they are, you may need to choose a delivery or pick up time that is about two days later than when you place your order. Delivery fees vary, depending on ‘Busy Times’ – meaning that you’ll pay more for premium delivery times, such as evenings. Pick-up services have a smaller fee attached to them…usually about $3-$5. Still, for someone picking out and packing your groceries for you, this is a reasonable cost!
  3. Walmart – I have used Walmart grocery pick-up services in the past (before the coronavirus outbreak) and I loved it! (You need to spend a minimum of $50 to get either pick-up or delivery.) Walmart grocery pick-up is FREE! For grocery delivery the fee is $9.97. The selection of products available is still quite good.
  4. Save-on Foods – offers delivery, and again their fees are higher for delivery at the most popular times. Their delivery charges range from $7-$10, which is still a great deal to get a large order of groceries brought right to your door!

Right now, stocking up on groceries feels more important than it ever has before. So, if you need to get some supplies in – try grocery pick-up or delivery options in the Calgary area. For a pretty reasonable fee, you can get the groceries and supplies that your family needs to be prepared!
