Welcome Canadian Cross-Border Shoppers! This site started with a Blog in 2010 in response to all my American friends telling me that Canadians have "FREE" Healthcare. As you all know nothing is free, especially our health care, so I started writing my Blog 2sidesof49.wordpress.com detailing the differences in our Taxes, Travel Costs, Cost of Living and especially the difference in Canadian and U.S. Retail prices. Most Canadians are fed up with paying higher prices than our neighbors to the south just because of where we live!
Enjoy your visit to 2sidesof49 and my Blog where you will read informative and money savings tips. Want to enhance your cross-border shopping experiences and, ultimately, allow you to keep more of your hard earned cash? The CANADIAN Cross-Border Shopping Guide "Second Edition" is only $16.95.
Thanks for visiting my site, Keith

"As a Canadian Snowbird I have found there is no better time to learn the tricks and the tips from Keith Pitts’ book “The Canadian Cross-Border Shopping Guide”. The Canadian Dollar is experiencing a decline against the United States Dollar, and this guide is an invaluable resource for making sure our retirement dollar stretches to its fullest. Every Canadian shops for clothing and electronics in the states, but this guide shows you how to save an extraordinary amount of money buying day to day goods and products. The layout is great, easy to read and you can quickly to go to the chapter you need before buying anything in the States. I recommend all cross border shoppers should learn from Mr. Pitts’ expertise in shopping and saving in the states before entering another American Store. Thank you for giving us a very resourceful guide teaching us great way to save money." R.M. Campbell River BC
