Sierra Trading savings

I always sort of forget about Sierra Trading Post, and then I end up rediscovering them and wondering how I ever forgot how great they are. They carry… a little of everything, really, but have great deals on clothing and shoes, and frequent sales/coupons. Right now they have a big crop of items in their “Markdown Madness” section, plus you can use a coupon to make it even better. Code EMY15 will take an additional 30% off your $75+ order, and coupon code ALADVENTURE5 should take 25% off any order, but I think it has some exclusions because in testing it out, it doesn’t work on everything. You may have to play around a bit.

True, you won’t find the latest/greatest here—the savings come from items being last season, discontinued colors, etc., but if that doesn’t bother you, you’d be hard-pressed to beat the prices here.

It’s still Memorial Day at Lands’ End

If you didn’t manage to hit them up this weekend, no worries—Lands’ End is continuing their Memorial Day savings into today, and you can use coupon code THRILL with PIN 4110 to take 30% off nearly everything.

It doesn’t work on Buy More And Save items, but it does work on sales and clearance. This is a great chance to stock up.

Happy Memorial Day from the Gap Family

Memorial Day is here, and while it’s about something a lot more important than finding good deals, I’m not averse to all the sales it spawns. So here’s what you can find at the Gap quad today if you’re so inclined:

Coupon code MONDAY is taking 40% off at Gap. Everything at Old Navy is already 50% off, and then another 30% off in your cart, automatically. At Banana Republic, code BRSUMMER takes 40% off.

And finally, although sales at Athleta are sort of like sighting a unicorn, coupon code HEATINGUP will take $25 off $150, $50 off $250, or $150 off $500. (You’re welcome for that one; it’s doubtless because I just bought my kid a swimsuit there and paid full price.) (Also: Who spends $500 at Athleta in a single trip and will they adopt me?)

Don’t forget all four stores share a shopping cart, and reaching $50 gets you free shipping on everything.

Children’s Place stock-up time!

Just about everything over at Children’s Place is marked at least 50% off, right now, plus there’s free shipping on every order, plus you can use coupon code SU15DM20FAF on top of that for another 20% off. Perfect! You can grab those last few summer necessities on the cheap, and then you won’t even feel all that bitter when they outgrow it all before August.

Free shipping ends today, by the way. I mean, until the next time they decide to do it.

You’ve got the cutest little baby shoes

If you love all things Robeez for tiny tots, head on over to and search for Robeez to find 5 different designs that are all just $9.99 shipped, today. I’m partial to the Digi Dino ones but at 60% off, any of ’em are a great deal.

(Don’t need them for your own kid? Robeez make great baby shower gifts and people will think you spent a lot more than you did. You’re welcome.)

Whenever I think parenting teens is hard…

… I remind myself that they can wipe their own butts. (Perspective!)

If you’re still in the magical cleaning-other-people’s-bottoms phase of parenting, you might want this deal on a 648-count case of Huggies wipes from Amazon; it’s priced at $11.97, then there’s a clippable $2 off coupon, and you can use Subscribe & Save to save even more and get free shipping. If you’re up to 5+ items for the month, your total will be $8.17 shipped, or around a penny a wipe.

That’s not as good of a deal as having children who don’t pee in their pants, but it’s pretty good.

Woot your Wednesday, all day

Awwwww yeah, it’s time again for a Woot-Off. Woot! (See what I did there?) There’s a bevy of rotating deals happening all day at Woot, Sport.Woot, Home.Woot, Kids.Woot, and Wine.Woot (motto: Sometimes Wine, Sometimes Other Stuff).

It’s a great opportunity to find some deals on stuff you didn’t even know you needed. At least, that’s how it usually works for me.

Positively marbulous

This is the cheapest price I’ve seen on one of those guaranteed-to-please kid items: Right now Amazon has this Edushape Marble Run available for $49.95, but applying coupon code WOVU57SS will take off another 20%, making it just $39.96 shipped.

My kids loved this thing when they were little. And this one comes with a ton of extra marbles so that when you vacuum up a bunch by accident, they still have plenty to play with. Not that I would know anything about that at all.

‘Tis the season for Crocs

Listen, I don’t condone the splash page for this sale on the Crocs site which proclaims “One for mom, one for you” (pro tip: Do not buy a woman Crocs for Mother’s Day), but it is a pretty good sale—right now you can buy one pair and get the second half off when you apply coupon code BOGO50. It even works on items already on sale, so you can figure out how to best save.

Shipping is free on orders of $25+. They’ve got shoes, boots, backpacks, even clothing (?). Get everyone outfitted for the summer, if Crocs are your thing.

Everything’s coming up Disney

Whether your kiddo is currently experiencing a hardcore Doc McStuffins obsession or you have a Disney Park trip scheduled for the near future, now’s the time to head over to The Disney Store to check out their Sale section—there’s tons of markdowns on everything from clothing to toys to dishware. Shipping starts at $6, and if you spend $75+, it all ships for free with code SHIPMAGIC.

Now the only question is whether or not I need that R2-D2 case for my phone. Because I really think I might.
