Five Fabulous Finds
The change of season means it’s time to do a few projects around the house. Stop by the store today to stock up on everything you need to get the items in your job jar completed.
Do the Can Can: Food in jars has skyrocketed in popularity. And Pollock’s has everything you need to get started if you’re a beginner or to do one more batch if you’re already on your way. We have a huge selection of quality Bernardin jars in a variety of sizes plus wide mouth lids, pectin, jar lifters and even the hard to find Vicorey brand of red rubber fruit jar rings. Starting at $2.99
Sow Some Seeds: Did your lawn take a beating this summer? It’s time to reseed. Fall’s cooler temperatures prevent grass seeds from drying out, but there’s still enough sun and rain to help them germinate before going into hibernation for the winter. Grab a bag of Eco-Lawn low maintenance seed. It grows in sun or shade and the bag will cover 1000 square feet. $35.99
Bag Those Leaves: We’re blessed to live in a city with an abundance of big, beautiful trees. Trees that drop their leaves when fall rolls in. Do the eco thing and gather your leaves into paper Green Bags. Check the City of Winnipeg website for lawn waste pick-up days in your neighbourhood.
When the Winds Blow: Stop them! Weatherproofing your home means increased comfort and lower heating bills. One of the biggest areas of heat loss is your windows. Keep them in good condition with a fresh coat of glazing to stop the wind from seeping in. Dap 33 is the market leader. A small investment and a little bit of handiwork means you’ll stay toasty through the chilly season. 946 ml $19.99, 237 ml $4.99
Change That Filter: Furnace filters quietly do the important work of removing particles form the air. These include lint, pollen, mold spores, dust, animal dander, bacteria and smoke. Nasty stuff. A clean filter also protects your furnace and keeps it in top working condition. After a windy, hot and dusty summer, now is the perfect time to treat your furnace to a new filter. Starting at $2.49.
