Smart Shopping

First things first.
I finally got my new camera, the Canon T2i!
Okay, so...this past summer, my T1i had an accident. I plunged it in the pool and it died. It was horrifying and I was super sad. I felt so guilty and so bad about it, since Richard had bought it for me Christmas 2009 that I didn't allow myself to get another DSLR until this past Christmas. (Did I mention I also broke my even older but super amazing Canon Pro1, which is discontinued.. a couple months later when I went camping and used it as a DSLR replacement??! I DROPPED IT.) SO GUILTY. I ended up surviving by using my Nikon point & shoot and borrowing Rich's Rebel.

Fortunately, Best buy had a pretty awesome deal on the T2i. $599 for the body, a kit lens, extra battery and a camera bag. I don't really care for the bag or the lens, but seeing as the body alone was $599 at some places on Boxing Day...I was sold. The extra battery alone is worth about $90! I wanted to pick up the 50mm 1.8 lens but it was sold out. No wonder, because it was on sale for $89! Crazy. I'll probably sell the bag and whatever else I can from the old camera.
Hopefully this new one will last me more than a year! I promise to be a good camera momma.

Loblaws had an awesome Christmas clear out. These ornaments were only 44¢ a box!

The luxury bows were 54¢ for 50 and the decorative ones on the right were only 24¢ each. Amazing time to stock up for the year to come! I also picked up Christmas garland lights for $2 a box and a large artificial wreath for $5.

Free Cover Girl Lashblash mascara, on sale for $3.94. I used a $4 off coupon and just paid taxes! Kind of super happy about this deal. My mum is too :)  as is Tank...

...who was even happier when I brought home a kitty cat Christmas stocking full of cat goodies! It was on clear out at Walmart for $1.
She's showing off her yoga moves here.

Tank was rolling around and smushing her face into it. What a dork <3

Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and Happy New Year!!

Hi, I'm Janetta from Toronto. I cook, bake and often veganize recipes. I photograph nearly everything and those photos will most likely end up being posted here. I've got a little black cat named Tank, who's really cute and a little bit nosy. You'll see a lot of photos of her too!
