Fun furniture for the kids

Looking for some bedroom furniture that the kids will love, but won’t break the bank? Try this—go on over to Home Depot and search on legare. You’ll find deep discounts on a variety of fun kids’ beds, desks, dressers, and other bedroom items.

My kids are too old for these things, but I’m pretty sure my daughter would’ve cheerfully sold a kidney for that purple car bed, back in the day.

All the cool stuff, no mall overwhelm

If I’m being perfectly honest, sure, Hot Topic is not exactly my favorite store. Some of the stuff they carry is… ahhh… interesting… and not at all my style (and maybe would evoke a “Over my dead body!” if my teen asked). And the store at the mall is just… loud. Crowded. Unfun.

But days like today—when they’re having a flash sale and everything is marked an extra 30% off (even clearance)—I can get behind a little online shopping. This means I can get that one super-cool t-shirt my kid is coveting, plus maybe some stocking stuffers, and it’s inexpensive and I don’t have to go to the mall. Awesome.

Shipping is a flat $4.95/order. You should be able to make that up in savings, easy.

It’s like spotting an endangered animal

On these rare occasions when releases a coupon, I always feel like I just saw a snow leopard in the Himalayas. So rare! So beautiful!!

Okay, fine, maybe a snow leopard would be a little more exciting. But 6pm coupons are good, too.

Anyway! Shop today and you can use code HQ7TOJYEK7 for an additional 10% off your order. It’s not a huge amount, sure, but on top of their already clearance-worthy prices, it’s nice. Plus they’ve got everything the kids need to dress for back-to-school and now with the extra savings you don’t have to feel guilty about scooping up a little something for yourself, too.

[Note: As with all 6pm coupons, this one is limited to a certain number of uses—usually 10,000—or until midnight. Order sooner rather than later to make sure you get the deal.]

Still not schooled on Schoola? Here you go!

Surely by now you are sick of me singing Schoola‘s praises, but seriously, if you haven’t tried them yet, you’re missing out.

Right now—in addition to the $15 credit you’ll get just for signing up through my link—they’re offering 50% off your entire order and free shipping with coupon code BACKTOSCHOOLA. That’s crazy, given that many of their prices are already 80% off retail. I’ve ordered with them probably half a dozen times, now, and in addition to great deals and money going to schools, I’d say we’ve only had maybe 2 or 3 items that were misses out of around… oh… 30.

Why, just now I placed another order with the coupon. It’s true, sometimes I get clothes for myself, but mostly I stick to buying stuff for my rapidly-growing and adult-sized children who seem to need new clothes constantly. I spent about $38 ($37.99, if you must know) on 10 items; the kids are getting 1 skirt, 1 pair of jeans, 4 pairs of shorts, 3 shirts, and 1 jacket. That’s better than I can do at Goodwill, frankly. (Plus my son is going to look great in that skirt.) (I kid! It’s not his size!)

Surprise Specials Day? Okay!

For the first time possibly ever, Macy’s is offering free shipping on absolutely every order today. No catch, no kidding.

They’re also calling it Surprise Specials Day, which means there’s tons of deals around, but only for today. And coupon code DEALS gives you an additional 20% off just about everything.

Not that I’m not enjoying Prime Day, but this is pretty good, too.

Flash sale at Schoola!

I know, I know; I keep linking to promos over at Schoola, but only because I’ve been shopping there a ton, myself. For a limited time, you can use coupon code HALFOFF for half off your order and free shipping.

Remember, if you haven’t signed up yet, you’ll get a shopping credit through my link when you do. And with this coupon you could be saving upwards of 90% on gently used clothes for you and the kids.

I’ve ordered from Schoola four times so far (hey, don’t judge) and the last time I did I got a maxi dress from some European brand I’ve never heard of that is now just about my favorite piece of clothing ever. So I’m not saying Schoola gives you a fashionable way to basically walk around in a socially-acceptable nightgown, but… okay, I sort of am.

Score at Schoola, again

If you haven’t yet checked out Schoola, what’re you waiting for?? Discounted, gently-used clothing for you and the kids, plus money to your favorite school. It’s a win-win!

Sign up as a new user and you’ll get a $15 credit. And whether you’re a new or returning customer, right now you can use coupon code TENOFF for $10 off your $50+ order or code TWENTYOFF for $20 off your $75+ order. That’s all on top of their deeply discounted prices!

Shipping is free on any size order right now, too. So basically you sign up, get free money, and then you can either find something that costs you nothing or save even more. What’s not to like?

It’s a magical day!

I’m painting my office, today. I know you care deeply. I’m just offering this by way of explanation, because I know I haven’t been posting a lot, lately, but it’s because I’ve been dismantling my office and such. And now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, because soon it will be DONE. (I’m a little excited.)

To celebrate—or maybe for reasons wholly unrelated to me, I guess, sure—today you can use coupon code 7RKJQVOLA6 for an additional 10% off at As you know if you shop there with any regularity, coupon codes for them are few and far between, so snap this one up if you’ve got your eye on something. Of course there’s a million sales going on already, so this is just the icing on the cake. Or the paint on the trim. Something.

They’re practically giving it away

I’m starting to get a little worried about Children’s Place; they’ve always had a lot of sales, but lately it’s getting ridiculous. Like, right now, everything on the site is 50-70% off, plus you can use coupon code GOAVENGERS20 for another 20% off, plus you’ll get free shipping on every order. How are they even making any money??

Eh, I guess they know what they’re doing. Go stock up just in case they don’t, though. (And be forewarned: the site’s running a little slow.)

Attention Zelda fans

File this under “things I understand to be important for some reason but don’t really understand” if you must, but right now Amazon has The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia available today for just $17.08 in hardcover. This is not only its lowest price ever, it’s a 5-star rated book with over 2,000 reviews. And it’s huge.

Now. I do not understand The Legend of Zelda. But I do understand it’s very interesting to people like my son, and also that after I buy him this book he will periodically show up in my office to tell me about it while I nod and try to follow what he’s saying. Still: a deal’s a deal.
