How to get FREE road salt for your driveway

I don’t know about you, but when I see ice on the road or a walking path my legs get all wobbly . Maybe because a few years back, I slid down 30 stairs and injured my back and butt. I still have a bump on my butt, but that’s a story for another day.

Man man is usually the one who goes to by the road salt at Canadian Tire or Costco, but while driving in the car a few weeks back, I heard an add that said you can use your Petro points now to buy anything in the store and it doesn’t have to be a minimum amount. FINALLY!  After my volleyball game I needed gas because I was at ¼ left and well, I promised the man I would not let it go past that in the winter anymore! So, I filled up at $1.04 yikes! Gas is sooo expensive. When I went in to pay, I saw the road salt was on sale for I think $5.97 and I asked the cashier if I could use my Petro Points to buy it and he said yes. My bill for the 35 liters of gas and a big 10 kg bag of road salt was…$33.20

On a different note, if you’re looking for a way to De-ice your windshield too, my man came up with a great way. He re-used a bug spray bottle and filled it with antifreeze. In the morning if there is still ice on the windshield, which there is always, he squirts it on the window and voila!!! No more ice. It’s amazing.
