411.ca for all your business directory needs

Looking for a website where you can find business listings nearby?  411.ca is my new best friend!  It’s Canada’s Local Search Engine. Find a person and reverse phone lookup directory services.
This is the site to turn to them whenever I’m looking for an address or telephone number of a business. They give you this information, plus more. 411.ca also gives the business a chance to send updates to the site (though I’ve found that not many businesses do unfortunately) as well as what the business features (for example: I searched Tim Hortons and it says that it features “Coffee, Tea), and a QR code (for smartphone bar code scanners) in case you want to take it on the go!
Keep 411.ca in mind the next time you want to look up a business!

Frugal Tip ~ Cereal Box Solution

A solution to your kids refusing to eat generic cereal, demanding only the name-brand cereal.  Just keep the boxes from the expensive cereals and start filling them with store-brand/generic cereal.  As long as the box looks right, your kids probably won’t even notice the difference.
