Do you love the great outdoors? Are you an avid camper? Then you won’t want to miss this HUGE sale at MTF Price Matters!

Check out this classic teepee tent – I’ve seen tents like this in Wal-mart for over $300 (hubby had a phase where he wanted to set up a backyard camp with the boys) – at MTF Price Matters? Just $219.99!

And if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been obsessed with picnicking. Outdoor dining just got a little more civilized, thanks to this cool new Home Living Picnic Backpack For Four!

A unique and special gift for people who don’t wait for an invitation to get the party started. Pack up the Picnic Bag, and you’re ready to go. Has a storage compartment, side insulated Wine/drink pouch, a matching interior blanket and a cooler pack in the rear. The front picnic pocket set includes: – 4 forks, 4 knives and 4 spoons, stainless steel – 1 cutting board – 1 cheese Knife, stainless steel – 1 set of spill proof salt and pepper shakers, – 4 plates, 9″ – 1 corkscrew, stainless steel.

After stumbling upon the UGG Deal of the Century (sizes and styles still available!) I make it a habit to check out MTF Price Matters on a regular basis. Of course they’ve since returned the love, as we’ve teamed up for a rockin’ Rock & Republic promotion - again, a few styles and sizes available – and they’re one of my newest sponsors (see that cute little button on the left? You’ll want to click on that to show your support).

Now for those who’ve asked and for those who’re wondering:

1. All of the merchandise at MTF Price Matters is 100% authentic. They simply do not do knock-offs. So you can take the low, low prices at face value – they’re awesome deals, plain and simple!

This morning I decided to take a virtual stroll through their apparel section and came across a few gems I just had to share:

Ladies Coach Purse ($144.99) – Don’t live near a Coach Outlet? No problem! You can find authentic Coach purses at awesome prices at MTF Price Matters. This piece has been discounted by a whopping $215 – and you simply MUST check back as the styles and selection are constantly changing.

Men’s 7 For All Mankind LA Dark Jeans ($78.20) – Um, I paid over $300 for my 7 For All Mankind jeans. I LOVE relaxed fit on men (no Axl Rose wannabes, thank you) and these jeans are seriously HOT. Sizes 30-38 are available, so I say treat your mister to some designer threads! Also available in limited sizes - Men’s 7 For All Mankind “A” Jeans (original fit).

Movado Watch Series 800 ($474.99) – This beyond gorgeous Movado watch is half price! It’s the perfect gift for a special guy (or gal – a lot of my girlfriends can rock men’s watches). The watch is recertified – kind of like a refurbished item – but it of course is fully guaranteed and comes with a comparable warranty. I’m also a fan of this Gucci Ladies Watch – also half price at just $449.99.

Ladies Rock & Republic Stella Outrider Jeans ($44.99) – Both my husband and I are LOVING our Rock & Republic jeans! They fit perfectly and honestly make me feel amazing. And I can’t believe they’re under $50 – I recently saw a similar style at Aritzia for over $200. Score!


Shop online 24/7 at PriceMatters.ca. Remember: inventory is constantly being updated, and items are available in limited quantities. So when you see a great deal, grab it!

PriceMatters.ca: Rock & Republic for $44.99!

*EDIT*

There are just a few sizes and styles available! The sale is going amazingly well and so far the feedback has been great – HOT jeans, PERFECT fit, and of course, you can’t beat the price!

Ahem – ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the DEAL.OF.THE.YEAR. (And it’s only February!)

Hot on the heels of the amazing UGG Boot Sale, MTF Price Mattters has teamed up with Listen to Lena! to provide my readers with one hot little sale – Rock & Republic Jeans for just $44.99! Yes – you read that correctly – regularly retailing for anywhere between $175-$275, Price Matters has limited styles, sizes and quantities for up to 80% off!

Available in Women’s sizes 24 to 32 and Men’s sizes 32 to 40, shop early for the best selection – because just like the UGGs, first come, first saves. I LOVE the Brewster Blue ” R” Jeans (Lowrise Skinny with Sexy R Back Pocket Embroidery). Rock & Republic Jeans can run one size small, depending on the style, so you may want to consult R&R’s Fit Guide to ensure proper sizing. Shipping is $15.00 per pair or you can arrange for free pickup at one of their 12 locations in Western Canada.

PriceMatters.ca: UGG Boots at 40% off!

*EDIT #3*

There are more sizes and styles in stock – including the HOT Bailey Buttons – still at 40% off! It’s not too late to grab a pair of AUTHENTIC UGG Boots!

*EDIT #2*

Since lots of gals seem to be grabbing two pairs, I just can’t be left behind! Just purchased the Classic Cardy Boots (Gray) in Size 8 – just $79.99! For those wondering – What gives? I didn’t see those this morning! – Take note! Stock will be continuously updated as more UGGs come into the store. So if your size is not currently available or you don’t see the colour you’re looking for, be sure to check back throughout the day! Woot!

Original Post

If you’ve chatted with me about footwear in the past 3-4 years, it’s no secret that Rubex Cube and I have been on the quest for cheap (but authentic) UGG boots. It’s the delicate balance between thinking they’re super cute but refusing to pay full price (that would rank us with 20 year olds who run out and buy them in every colour). So we’ve been waiting not just for a sale – but the mother of all sales.

I cheated. Last week, after the rush of Christmas and the thrill of the holidays subsided, I found myself in Soft Moc – planting down my Visa to pay $225 for a pair of classic short UGGs. As the sales clerk handed me the box, I shook my head, thinking “As if I won’t be returning these next week.” I haven’t paid full price for almost everything (excluding gas and groceries) in almost 3 years! So predictably, the UGGs are waiting in the box by my front door, waiting for a return trip to the mall.

Then – a break. Scrolling thought the Smart Canucks deals board, I stumbled across a post that said “UGG Boots 40% off!” I clicked the link, and discovered MTF Price Matters. They’re liquidators based in BC, and not only do they guarantee their goods – shipping is also reasonable and the prices are unbeatable!

And they’ve currently got UGG boots at up to 40% off wholesale prices! I grabbed the very same Gray Classic Short boots for $79.99 – with taxes and shipping (flat $20.00) – just $99.73!!! I saved $126.26 – I could have bought myself a second pair, ha ha! (I didn’t.)


Word on the street is that they’re overstock from Costco in the BC area. I connected with a few members of Smart Canucks who had purchased and picked up the boots (they have local pickup available at their liquidation centre) and both customers agreed that they were 100% authentic and in great condition.

Sizes 7, 8, 9 and 10 are still available in many styles at 9:00pm Wednesday – Happy Shopping!

*EDIT* I was sitting on the fence between colours, and I ended up changing my mind. I spoke with a Customer Service rep this morning – who was INCREDIBLY polite and accommodating - and my first order was cancelled – no hassles whatsoever! I’m going with the Classic Short in Sand – Woot!
