My Latest Purchase From SHOP.CA

Now that SHOP.CA has finally launched (wasn’t the wait agonzing, talk about a tease!) what are you shopping for?

Last month I shared how  happy I was to find one of my favourite stroller brands, Britax, at SHOP.CA and how the free shipping and SHOP.CA Rewards beat competitors on this product.  I’ve also been tweeting and sharing on Facebook when there’s an awesome SHOP.CA sale that I think my readers should know about!  Back-to-School in particular brought Canadian shoppers a ton of great sales on clothing items.

In August, I was tasked (oh such a hard task!) with deciding what to purchase as my first actual product-review from SHOP.CA.

Do I get a leaf blower for my husband or a new outdoor toy for the kids? Both had great prices and of course came with SHOP.CA Rewards but in the end I decided it was time for something for ME.

Well, sort of.

The Cosmopolitan Medium Rectangular Storage Ottoman was my final choice!  One of my goals for the new school year is to reduce stressful mornings.  Now that I have 2 kids to get ready and out the door in the mornings (with a third on my hip!) I need to make our mornings as streamlined as possible.  One major  bone of contention between my kids and I is missing hats, gloves and shoes in the morning.  Where do they disappear to?

We have a large front entry way in our house but a very small closet.  This ottoman, with tons of storage space inside, is the perfect place for storing hats, gloves, scarves and other odds and ends that seem to go missing. My sister had advice for me too – put baskets inside the ottoman to further organize the items!  Brilliant.

Now the kids have a storage place for their “stuff”, a place to sit and put their shoes and boots on, and hopefully I have a calmer morning getting them all out the door.

Here’s my quick video review of the product itself so you can see just how big it is and how much room it has inside!  The Cosmopolitan Medium Rectangular Ottoman is available at SHOP.CA for $139.00 with FREE SHIPPING!

  • I am very unimpressed with…..their customer service is very slow and very poor. I bought a duvet cover from them and it arrived damaged. I returned it and now the seller is saying it came back to them soiled. How could it be soiled when I never even put it on the duvet. Customer service seems to be siding with the seller without even bothering to find out my side of the story. I have bought many things from Ebay and never had a problem…..if this is the best can do I do not see a very bright future for them!
