Dollarama Finds: Tech Cases

Dollarama might be the golden ticket if you are searching for some tech cases for your devices. I was on the hunt for a laptop case, tablet case and a Nintendo Switch case. I searched Amazon.ca and found 1 case alone was around $20. At Dollarama I found 3 cases for all my gadgets under $15! Turns out these cases are actually really nice which is awesome. I think cases from the dollar store are true tech bargins so next time you pop into one have a look down the electronics aisle, you might be surprised what you find! Keep in mind not all stores will sell the same product, you might find the exact same one or a similar one!

Here are my finds:

Hi-Pro Laptop Sleeve (Olive Green) – There were lots of color choices to choose from
Company: World Richman Mfg. Corporation
Price = $4

Fits up to 15.4″ inch laptops
-Fits most laptops with up to a 15.4″ screen
Lightweight slim case
Durable construction
Fits easily into a business case
High quality neoprene (protects against scratches)

I really like this case it fits my 14″ HP 14a perfectly with some room for my bluetooth mouse and a little extra room. It keeps the dust off my laptop and does a great job at protecting the laptop in my backpack.

Incase 13″ Laptop Classic Sleeve (Dark Purple) – There were lots of color choices to choose from
http://www.incase.com
Price = $4

Complete protection
Plush faux-fur lining
Airport security friendly

I got this for my iPad and it fits perfectly as well as the charger. If you are not aware of the Incase brand they are a familiar brand that Amazon and Best Buy sell. Some of these cases range from $20-$50 which is pretty wild to find it at the dollar store! The color is perfect, it has a nice soft inside and it protects my iPad from dust!

Tech Cord Case – Carry Cords & Small Electronics – There were lots of color choices to choose from
By: Schroeder & Tremayne
Price = $4

I found this exact same case on Amazon.ca for $9.99 – again another good deal. It fits my Nintendo Switch perfectly and saves it from collecting dust on the shelf.

I’m all for saving cash as much as possible so these cases were a pretty sweet find and I hope you can get some decent accessories at a bargain too!

Just In Time for Summer: Kick Off Your Summer Right With A New Update From Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Free Summer Update: Wave 1

When will Nintendo release the free update available to download? Launching July 3, 2020 – so you’ve got some time to get your island prepped exactly how you want it for ocean life! I have read a lot about players getting bored of the game and looking for something new. Well here it is! ❤

Exciting right? I’m a newbie and just when I thought the New Horizon escape life was already pretty sweet, now it’s gonna be even sweeter. So get ready to dance your way into the new update that will be ready for you in only 3 days! That’s this Friday, so all week we finally have something good to look forward too! 🙂

Are you ready to read what’s new for your personal island paradise? Let’s get to it!!!!

Your island oceans are opening up: The ability to go swimming AND diving around your island. Swimming out to the sea will let you meet up with a familiar face: Pascal the sea otter and he just might have something in store for you once you find him. Apparently, you will need a wet suit in order to dive in. Once you have your wet suit on, the sea is officially all yours to discover and explore.

Live it up in sea world and you will catch some new sea creatures – anemones, eels, scallops and even more to donate to Blather’s museum.

I went to the museum to talk to Blathers about the new update. But Blathers was sleeping, so I took a pic while Blath was sleeping. Hopefully resting up and getting ready for Friday!
I’m glad I brought these fine fish in. I love looking out the window at them.
Scenery from the museum.

Mr. Pelican Gulliver himself will get a new clothing style. Apparently he is getting a new pirate look and he will be giving players an unknown “special reward” for lending him a hand. Well, that should be interesting… I really want to help him, but I still haven’t found any of his communicator parts yet. 😦 I don’t even know where the hell he is right now, so this should be fun when I do find him!!

Tanabata Holiday: Celebrated by Japanese on the 7th of July, this holiday will also be celebrated in this new update. It’s not known if this will be a wordwide thing, or if items will be available worldwide, but I hope so! I think that would be a pretty cool experience for a day.

This update will also give you some new DIY crafts and mermaid themed DIY recipes straight to your inbox.

I can’t wait to try it out, I’m ridiculously hyped for this update. I love that feeling when you hop onto things in the game so I can only imagine what jumping into the water will be like. I just started playing about 3 weeks ago and really hoped to at least dip my feet into the water, only to find out I couldn’t. So this update will be pretty special for me. I’m also wondering if some of the characters will get some new lines, it gets pretty boring hearing the same old stuff.

But that’s not it!! There will be a returning feature…stay tuned for Wave 2, planned to come out early August! Dude, Animal Crossing literally has our summer set. Life in 2020 sure has been a bit insane, but don’t worry, Animal Crossing’s life simulator will help you escape, and I’m sure it will only get better and better!
