TIME CHANGE WEEKEND! Good time to check your C02 detectors (the ones that aren’t hardwired) and to be careful on the roads! CAA reminds us to keep our full vehicle lights on thirty minutes before sunset, and thirty minutes after sunrise. If you’re feeling drowsy, pull over and take a break. Signs of fatigue can include the inability to recall the last few kilometers driven, having disconnected or wandering thoughts, and difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open. Pedestrians are reminded to stay on the sidewalk, only cross at designated crossings, and always be aware of their surroundings. Clocks fall back one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, November 5. The time shift will provide more light in the morning but it also gets darker more quickly in the evening. But why do we do this?
WHY WE CHANGE AND THE FIRST TIME IT WAS DONE IN CANADA: https://www.timeanddate.com/time/dst/history.html
WALMART HOUSE $10 Grand? As home prices continue to rise in Canada, looking to buy a home can be a bit discouraging. What if you looked into a tiny home? I see them on TikTok all the time, and it seems like the spaces can be used in a really efficient way that can make a tiny home feel comfortable. Apparently Walmart is getting in the HOUSE GAME and you can buy a tiny home from the big box retailer for Less Than $10,000 USD! The current and official price is $8,700. You can take a look here. Apartment Therapy says that the tiny home is less than 250 square feet, but Walmart supplies you with nearly everything that you would need.
CAN YOU BUY ONE HERE?!?!?!? YES!!!!!! THE PLOT Thickens. Apparently there is a company in CANADA that can do it for LESS but no fixin’s in the house. HOWVER it will be CSA Approved and insulated for our winters. It’s make by a new companie called Bunkie Life and you can get a HOUSE from them for $10K Canadian!
