Gift Cards to save money

I never realized how little stuff I have until I realized I have to furnish a whole apartment. This is not just the big stuff which I'm going to buy one piece a month, but little stuff like utensil, pots, vacuum, tools etc. I think I moved my clothes, shoes, and books and that's it.

I realize I will probably be making quite a few trips to the Canadian Tire. With a little pre-planning I could save more money. I ordered some gift cards from Canadian Tire through Great Canadian Rebates which gets 3.5% cash back + 1% from the credit card rewards. Also, paying with gift cards means Canadian Tire Money back with purchase.

I already have my eyes on a light, a clothes rack, and a set of glass tupperware.
