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.

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.

It’s a good day to Kohls

Whatever you need, they probably have it over at Kohls. They’re good that way. And with frequent sales and coupons, it’s just a matter of shopping on the right day.

Today is that right day (woohoo)! Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, can use coupon code SUNSHINE for an extra 15% off, and gets $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. If you have a Kohls charge card, use coupon code BBQ30 for an additional 30% off and code JUNE4MVC for free shipping on any size order.

There’s still time to order for Father’s Day, too, and you can use coupon code DADSDAY10 for an additional $10 off $30+ in Father’s Day Gifts. You know Dad wants a goofy t-shirt or something.

Pay even less at Payless

Need a pair of shoes or three? Look no further than Payless for affordable options for the whole family, and right now you can stack the savings to score big.

This is a perfect sale for when you have a few kids who like to wake up with feet a couple of sizes larger than they went to bed with the night before.

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.
