MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - Walmart Canada has declared May 2
its own national day of savings, to bring some fun to budgeting and
To kick off the day, Walmart Canada will host the first-ever Frugal
Heroes Challenge, where bloggers from coast-to-coast will find
cost-effective solutions to every day budget challenges. Canadians are
invited to join the Challenge, share their own budgeting tips and
