My fiancé and I recently moved from a two bedroom townhouse to a four bedroom detached home in Toronto. While we were thrilled with the idea of upgrading to a bigger home, we weren’t so excited about the process of moving. Enter Jiffy

Of course there’s an app for that! Jiffy offers easy home services on demand. When we determined our moving date, we simply launched the Jiffy app, searched on “moving” and entered our moving date. Within one click, Jiffy searched their inventory of reputable Toronto-based moving companies until they found one that could provide service on the date requested. Within 5 minutes, I had a confirmation email in my inbox with the name of the moving company and an approximate price quote. Easy peasy!

When I used to work downtown, the “PATH” or shopping concourse was both a convenience and a curse. I would start my day in the food court with a breakfast sandwich and a tea or coffee, and I would have some sort of fast food for lunch. Sure, there were healthier options, but there were only so many $12 salads that I could afford! I probably spent $2500 a year on coffees and lunches and I worked downtown for 10 years – CRAZY! For the past three years, ever since I started working from home, I make myself a smoothie every weekday for lunch. Not only has this been an economical choice for me, but a super healthy one too!

When I heard about the new iögo large yogurt pouches, I was thrilled because they’re perfect for someone who goes through as much yogurt as I do!

It’s hard to believe it’s been six months since I kicked off the racing season at Woodbine Racetrack – time flies when you’re having fun and the sun is shining! During the 2015 racing season, I went #OffToTheRaces for four events at Woodbine.

I wouldn’t call myself a gambler by any means, but Woodbine offers your first bet free at many of their racing events and it’s always fun to pick a pony and see what happens!
