Heads up, Apple-lovers

I don’t want to get into a protracted discussion of whether higher-cost Apple items are “worth the money” compared to their Windows counterparts—people have Strong Feelings both ways and I get that—but if you’re an Apple type and you’ve been waiting for a great deal on a 13″ Air, I’ve got a deal for you.

See, I was just looking at Best Buy’s Deals of the Day (that’s a decent $40 toaster oven there, if you need one) and then I clicked on the 4-Day Sale link towards the bottom. The first deal that pops up on that page is the latest 13.3″ MacBook Air for $800. That’s $200 off, which is basically unheard of. It’s not a refurb or an open box, either.

Personally, I tend to hit the Apple Store directly for refurbs, but if that’s not your jam (or you need, say, a graduation gift…?), this is the deal to beat.

If you missed it the last time…

… well, good news, because Schoola is doing another free-shipping promo right now. If you’re new to the site, sign up through my link there and you’ll get $15 to spend on whatever gently-used clothing for kids and teens you like, plus it’ll automatically ship for free. (If you’re already a member, well, free shipping always makes shopping more tempting!)

I’ve made two purchases with them so far and have been very pleased both times. And if you must know, the “High Schoola” sizes extend to adults, so it’s possible I grabbed some cute stuff for myself while shopping for the kids. Maybe.

Time for a Kohls round-up

It seems like forever since Kohls had a good batch of coupons, but starting today we’ve got some new ones.

Of course they’ve got their sales/bonus buys/and Kohls Cash going right now (get $10 for every $50 you spend!), but it’s the coupons that really it hard to turn away. Kohls charge card holders can use code FLOWER30 for an extra 30% off everything, plus code MVCAPRIL will get you free shipping on any size order. No Kohls charge? You can use code SAVELC3 for 15% off your $100+ purchase, anyway, and everyone gets free shipping on $75+, automatically.

I am buying my man-sized child some man-sized clothes. But I am not happy about it, no matter how much money I save. Siiiiiigh.

The perfect day for Place

Spring has sprung, and maybe you’ve discovered that your children’s clothing has mysteriously gotten smaller over the winter. Very odd. No matter! You can shop at Children’s Place today and take 50% off of everything, plus get free shipping, with coupon code PLACE3.

Usually this is where I leave you with a bitter rant about my children having outgrown all of their great bargains, but today I think I’ll mix it up and skip that part. Happy shopping!

Mmmmm, lemony!

If you love all things Mrs. Meyer’s (I do!), don’t miss this current deal at Amazon—their 3-pack of Mrs. Meyer’s liquid hand soap has a clippable $2.25 coupon available, as well as additional Subscribe & Save savings. The lemon verbena scent (my favorite) came out to just under $7 shipped for me.

If nothing else, buy it because the label helpfully tells you that you should moisten your hands, then add soap, and then the longer you rub your hands, the cleaner they become. Seriously, the label makes me laugh every time I look at it.

Apron up

Personally, I am not so much a frilly apron sort of person. I rarely remember to wear an apron (usually right after I spill something on myself, that’s when I remember…), and for years I just wore the one issued to me at my first waitressing job, mumble-mumble years ago. Ahem.

Then my sister-in-law gave me a Wonder Woman apron, and now I remember to wear it a lot more often, because how awesome is that? Still, I understand that a lot of people enjoy something pretty to wear in the kitchen, and that’s where Flirty Aprons comes in, because I wish several of their aprons were actually dresses. They use cute fabrics and prints and I am certain these are designed for people who are much less messy than I am.

Anyway! Right now you can use coupon code MOMSDAY50 for 50% off anything except their daily deal. Looks like they’re giving free shipping, too. And I just noticed that several of their girl-sized aprons are marked down to just $6 (with matching mom aprons down to $9)! (You won’t be able to save more on those, but still. That’s a steal.) So that means you can pick up an apron for Mother’s Day, or Girls’ Day, Father’s Day, any day! And you’ll save big.

Hey, are you a fungi?

(Get it? Get it?? Fungi = fun guy? I’ll be here all week!)

Okay, I’ll confess that I love mushrooms in all forms, and I have often waffled over purchasing one of these home kits but could never quite justify it to myself… until now. Right now Amazon has this Back to the Roots Mushroom Farm priced at $18.39, which is a decent deal, but there’s also a clippable 25% off coupon, and you can purchase via Subscribe & Save for free shipping and additional savings.

I’m at 15% off for my upcoming May delivery, already, so even after tax, I was able to grab this for about $11.

Homegrown organic oyster mushrooms? I’d do it for the science value (c’mon, that’s just cool, growing mushrooms out of coffee grounds), but I’m also looking forward to eating them.

Kate Spade does Friends & Family

You’re part of the family over at Kate Spade, right? I mean, you’re fond of them but also sort of offended by their prices and their thinking they’re so great, right? It’s just like family. Anyway, shop ‘em right now and take 25% off anything with code DEAREST, and it works on sale items, so there are some huge savings to be had.

Shipping is free, as are returns (on anything that isn’t final sale). Go get yourself a treat at a manageable price.

Ready to switch to LEDs?

If you’re like me, your hippy-dippy crunchy side goes to war with your need for bright light every time you buy compact fluorescents and wish there was a better option. And there is—LED lightbulb technology has come a long way in the last few years, now offering energy-efficient bulbs that give off well-balance, bright light.

Right now Amazon has this 6-pack of daylight LED 60W-equivalent bulbs available for just $34.66, a good $10 cheaper than I can find them anywhere else. They’re highly rated in customer satisfaction and performance, and each bulb can last for up to 20,000 hours.

We’ve replaced most of our household fixtures with LEDs over the years, but these are perfect for the conventional lamps we still have here and there. Maybe you’ll find the deal useful, too. (I know someone emailed me about LEDs recently. Sue? Was that you?)

Woohoo, it’s a Woot-Off!

You know I always appreciate a Woot-Off, but today it’s even better because I’ve got a sick kid and a million things to do and so maybe you’ll get so wrapped up in the Woot-Off you won’t notice me over here dropping all of these balls I’m supposed to be juggling. Yeah. Let’s go with that.

They’re Wooting Off all day long at Woot, Home.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, Kids.Woot, and—our favorite source of wine-and-other-random-things—Wine.Woot. That means a new deal every 30 minutes or sooner (depending on how quickly it sells out), and some fantastic bargains tossed in the mix that you might be lucky enough to catch.

On top of that, there’s 15 new designs available over at Shirt.Woot—it’s the April Shirtstorm!—and they’re just $8 apiece.

Happy Wooting!
