Our Canadian summer is so short that it’s hard to believe the final long weekend of the season is almost here. But many of us are so caught up in the back to school bustle that we don’t get to enjoy the last blast of summer. This year, plan a Labour Day celebration! The best news is you don’t have to break your budget to end your summer with a bang.

  • Finish back to school shopping early. You don’t want to spend your last weekend of the summer in crowded stores with the stress of getting the family ready for back to school. Finish your shopping before the long weekend so you can relax and have fun. Walmart and Office Depot have great deals on right now.
  • Make exciting plans. It’s easy to let a long weekend slip away puttering around the house, so be sure to make a plan! Organize an outing to a local attraction or entertainment venue the whole family will enjoy. Visit Flyerland.ca for savings at Attractions Ontario.
  • Host a party.  Get together with friends and neighbours for the last hurrah of the summer! Fire up the grill and make it a potluck, asking the gang to bring salads and sides, desserts and drinks. Stock up on food and party supplies at Loblaws,  and Walmart—you can view the flyers on Flyerland.ca.
  •  Get away. Labour Day weekend is the ideal time for a mini holiday. Whether you head out of town or stay in your own city, you’ll come home refreshed and ready to face the fall. Check out Flyerland.ca for last-minute discount travel deals from TravelAlerts.
  • Finish your summer to do list. Is there an activity you’ve wanted to do all summer that you just didn’t get to? Get out and do it! This is your last chance for summer fun, so make the most of your long weekend.
  •  Shop the end of season sales. If your barbecue is burnt out and your patio set is past its prime, replace them and save at the end of summer sales. See the Home Depot and Canadian Tire flyers on Flyerland.ca for the best prices of the season.
  • Relax. The busy fall season is about to begin so take a well-deserved break on the holiday. Treat yourself to a relaxing home spa day, read a book in the backyard, or plan a family movie night with a summertime theme.
