Halloween? Yeah, Halloween.

I know that—at least to me—Halloween still seems impossibly far off, but really, it’s September, and Halloween is on its way. (Is it me, or was this the fastest summer ever in the history of summers? Seemed like it.)

If Halloween’s your thing, today is the day to hit BuyCostumes: they’re having a one-day-only sale extravaganza!

First, they have a bunch of “Pumpkin Busters” (like Door Busters, I guess) going on, with crazy low prices on costumes for everyone from babies to adults. There’s also “orange tag” items of under $10. Then you can also—today only—use coupon code Orange25 for an additional 25% off!

Do they have Frozen costumes? Yep, they do. Good luck finding one of those in October, by the way. Just sayin’.

He needed it, okay?

Yes, I live in Georgia. Yes, it rarely gets that cold here. Yes, my pampered, somewhat health-compromised second dog can’t even really go for proper walks. (In our family we refer to it as him going for “a carry.”) And yes, okay, fine, I just bought him a coat.

Sometimes it gets cold. I don’t want him to be chilly. Stop looking at me like that.

Well, you see, there’s a great 30% off coupon going today at Lands’ End—just use coupon code PUMPKIN with PIN 1606—and it works on clearance and they had doggie squall jackets for, like, $8 before the coupon. Also they had a bunch of other stuff we needed.

Shipping is free on $50+, and returns are free at your local Sears store.

And Duncan is totally going to wear that jacket this winter. I’ll send you a picture.

Shoes, shoes, shoes

Labor Day means sales, and you know I am nothing if not a keen finder of sales on shoes. So:

Today’s bonus Gold Box Deal is 8 different styles of Pearl Izumi running shoes, all at at least 50% off. I’m considering a pair of M3s, myself. That’s a hard price to beat.

All of the great Labor Day specials have already started over at 6pm.com, with deep discounts on darn near everything.

And at Shoes.com, coupon code SALE25 takes an extra 25% off anything that’s already on sale.

Happy long weekend, made happier with shoe deals.

Save extra at 6pm today

It’s another elusive 6pm.com coupon—shop today and save an extra 10% on your order until midnight with coupon code 6PMFB82720141047. That’s on top of today’s specials and the free shipping you get automatically.

It’s only 10%, but it’s rare, and if you were planning to get something, anyway….

I confess, Kohls got me today

I know, I know, there’s often a good batch of sales/deals/coupons at Kohls on a Wednesday, and that’s not new. But today they me laugh—everyone can save 20% on $100+ with code MARCHING or 15% on any size order with code BAND. We band parents have to take the humor wherever we find it, y’know.

Even better: Everyone gets free shipping on $50+, automatically, and everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. They’ve got the usual crop of sales and doorbusters going on, too, plus some great deals on Keurigs if you’re in the market for one of those.

A perfect day to Bon-Ton

Been over to Bon-Ton lately? Today’s the day to do it—save an additional 30% on almost everything with coupon code AUG14SAVE30 today only, plus stack it with code FREESHIP for free shipping on any size order. If you love Clinique, they’re also running a Clinique bonus (I love their little bonus pouches; so cute).

Remember, when they have a code like this, it does work on regular Clearance items, but it does not work on Yellow Dot Clearance. In other words: choose your items carefully.

(I totally stock up during these sales. The prices are hard to beat, and often when I’m shopping for the kids, something for me falls into my cart. Whoops!)

Fresh bread, like magic

This one is always popular when the price goes down, and today’s deal is its lowest price ever: Nab this Cuisinart CBK-100 2-Pound Programmable Breadmaker at Amazon right now for just $70.62 shipped. This unit gets great reviews and normally goes for right around $100.

If you don’t see the sale price with Amazon as the seller when you hit the page, look in the righthand column for the special price with Amazon as the vendor.

Hurry, though—I suspect they’ll be jacking the price back up pretty soon.

Happy Gapday to you!

Can you believe that Gap has been around for 45 years?? I feel… very old. (Like, almost as old as Gap, apparently.)

They’re celebrating today with a just-until-midnight discount—shop and spend $100+ and you can use coupon code BDAY to take $45 off your total. There’s tons of exclusions, so do read the fine print, but if the coupon covers some stuff you were wanting anyway, well, happy birthday to Gap and hooray for savings for you.

Back to school cool (on sale and shipped free)

There’s no shortage of beautiful things over at Pottery Barn Kids, and if you check out their back-to-school backpacks and luggage sale right now, you’ll find deep discounts and (even better) free shipping on a variety of stuff your kids crave. They’ve got everything from suitcases to personalized superhero notebooks, and if you’re the sort to give in to a little indulgence for your kids (or you have or are a grandparent waiting to do so…), this is the sale to hit.

They’ve got little fun items like sandwich cutters and water bottles, too, that would normally be cost-prohibitive to ship, even on sale. I love when they offer free shipping!

[Edited to add: Looks like the same deal applies at PB Teen, and most of their stuff is even cheaper! Woohoo!]
