Once newcomers come to Saskatoon from another country, some people don’t want to spend too much money until they find a job or any other income source. I agree with that. Some people (such as students) don’t have money enough to buy basic stuffs they want to start the life. So….how do you start the new life in a simple way or how can you save money you brought from your country. Answer is spending less and buying very cheap stuff for your basic needs (not food).
You may need to buy some items (such as cooking utensils, bed or mattress, microwave, telephone, TV, winter cloths and other items) to start the life in the new place. There are number of ways you can find stuff you need in a cheap way. Here are some of the places for cheap products;
