Save big for the kids, plus jammies for the whole family!

I think I suffered from a bit of sale fatigue with them for a while, but now I’m here to tell you that if you skip today’s sale at Children’s Place you are missing out. Not only is everything at least 40% off and all Clearance at least 75% off, today, and not only is shipping free on every single order, but they’ve also got all of their family holiday pajamas in stock and on sale—go get them now, before everything’s sold out in a month.

Better still, either sign up for their emails (you should get a pop-up when you visit the site) or for text alerts (you can always turn them off later…) and you’ll get a code for $10 off your $40+ purchase.

Longtime readers know I’m still bitter that my kids had to go and turn into adults who can’t wear Place clothes anymore… but do I still buy the (adult-sized) matching pajamas there? I sure do. If your kids are still little, enjoy all the matching holiday clothes. They’re adorable.

Geeky shirts, silly shirts, awesome shirts

Haven’t been over to Shirt.Woot for a while? Me neither, but I’m always delighted when I remember to hop back on over there.

Today’s the perfect day to do it, too—take an additional 35% off your shirt order there with coupon code WOOTIGN35, plus you’ll get free shipping on every order!

I own a wide assortment of Woot shirts, but I feel like I can always use a few more, right…? (Don’t answer that.)

It’s LEGO Advent Calendar time!

Do they sell out every year before you remember to think of them? Not this year—right now Amazon has the 2018 LEGO City Advent Calendar in stock and priced at just under $22. If you prefer the LEGO Friends version, that’s $25, and the LEGO Star Wars version is in stock (good) but still at full retail of $40 (not so good). But you do you.

No matter which one you choose, I promise you won’t be able to find them in December. Plan early and make ’em happy, folks. (I say this as someone who purchased Advent calendars for her teens for quite a while….)

Top-shelf kicks for clearance rack prices

Helllooooooooo! I have been away. (And busy with these people in my house who like to call me “Mom” as if that means I owe them something. Sheesh!) But today I have spotted a crazy deal those of you whose offspring are still miniature are likely to appreciate.

Today (Wednesday, August 15th) only, check it out: Stride Rite is having a Flash Sale on over a hundred different styles. If it’s in the sale, it’s $19.99—no fooling! And sure, there’s plenty of sandals because that’s end-of-season stuff, but also sneakers, dress shoes, and even boots. When else can you get ergonomic shoes for kids that started at $52 for just under $20?

Shipping is free on $30+, so buy a couple of pairs and you’re all set. I’ll just be over here all bitter that my kids have bigger feet than I do….

A small existential crisis and two giant floaties

Hello! You may have noticed I have not been here. I am trying to figure out some things, like whether or not Want Not remains sustainable in a world where absolutely everyone now knows how to shop online and find deals, or how excited I can continue to be about a deal on paper towels when I’ve already been doing this for more than a decade.

Also, I’m pretty concerned about the fact that “mom jeans” are coming back as a cool thing for hip teenagers to wear. If that doesn’t herald the imminent death of polite society, I don’t know what does.

Anyway! I’ll wrestle with this stuff as best I can and get back to you. But in the meantime, today I stumbled across a deal that was too good not to share. You know how those giant unicorn pool floaty things have been everywhere this year, but they cost somanydollars? Today’s the day to make everyone’s dreams come true without emptying your wallet!

Amazon has this giant inflatable unicorn pool float available for $37.99—a typical price—but there’s a secret coupon code! Just enter code ZGOBSU9K at checkout and it’ll deduct $24, making your price just $13.99 with free shipping.

Don’t love the unicorn? The same company also has a giant inflatable dragon pool float on a similar deal—the original price of $37.99 drops to $13.99 when you apply coupon code I8FB8ALS at checkout.

[Note: If you try to check out with both of them, only one coupon will work. Place separate orders if you’re trying to get more than one.]

I feel like these are probably at least $14 worth of entertainment.

Go be a Champion (of savings)

Need some new workout gear, or just like comfy clothing? Hop on over to the Champion online clearance for some already great price reductions, and then save even more—use coupon code EXTRA40 for an additional 40% off and code ESHIPCH for free shipping on any size order.

I’m seeing things like ridiculously low prices on sports bras and other specialty wear, plus this is my favorite way to stock up on socks for the whole family. (Because everyone is always out of socks. Where do they go? I have no idea.)

Sizes and styles are limited, of course, but with discounts like these, that’s no surprise.

It’s a flash sale on everyone’s favorite summer shoes

Remember when we all just made fun of Crocs for adults but kept buying them for our kids and maybe a pair for ourselves “just for gardening” and then they started making all kinds of other styles and now they still make the ubiquitous squishy clogs but also things like real leather dress shoes? They’ve come a long way, baby.

Well, today (Thursday, June 7th) is the day to shop. They’ve put over 100 styles in a 24-hour Flash Sale, which means you can mix and match your favorites for the whole family and get 50% off everything. Free shipping on your $29.99 order, otherwise shipping is a flat $4.99.

I don’t want to tell you what to buy, but if you have a beloved chef/cook in your life and you don’t pick up a pair of these Muppets Swedish Chef clogs, just know that I will be pretty disappointed.

Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, and also Kohls

It’s time for a new batch of Kohls coupons! Just in time for… well, okay, they have coupons all the time, so it’s “just in time” for pretty much whatever you need. Clothing! Outdoor furniture! Kitchen stuff! Whatever!

Right now they have specials and Door Busters galore, plus everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend. Kohls charge card holder can take an additional 30% off with coupon code MOM30, plus get free shipping on any size order with code FREE4MAY. Everyone can take an additional $10 off $50+ on qualifying Home items with code MOMSDAY10 (stacks with other percent-off coupons!), or use code SAVEMORE20 for an extra 20% off $100+ or 15% off, otherwise.

I’m sure I’ve shared this before, but one of my favorite things to pick up during these sales—either because we need more or because I need some cheap items to get me to the next Kohls Cash threshold—are these Big One pillows. At $4 apiece (that’s before coupons) they’re surprisingly good quality, and cheap enough that when they finally do flatten out, you don’t have to feel bad about replacing them.

Those of you starting to gear up your soon-to-graduate kids for the college adventure, toss those in your cart and then look around. There’s tons of bedding and towel deals, plus bed bug encasements (trust me, even if there aren’t bugs, you’ll feel better knowing your kid’s who-knows-what-came-before dorm mattress is hermetically sealed), foam padding, etc. You could knock out a big chunk of your shopping months ahead of schedule, cheap.

It’s a super cyber-delic sale

Silly name aside, for whatever reason Old Navy is having a huuuuuuge (super cyber-delic, even) sale today. Get an additional 40% off everything—even already-reduced sale prices—automatically, plus coupon code FREESHIP will give you free shipping on your $25+ order, rather than making you get to the normal $50+ threshold.

Grab this cool tote for free, too, with code TOTALLY. (Add the tote to your cart, then use the code.)

If you’re dying for new items, well, 40% off is pretty nice. But really, scope out the clearance and save a bundle. But hurry—this sale is over tonight (Monday, March 12th) and items are selling out.

Clearance, free shipping, and something for everyone

Y’all know that sometimes I forget to check sales at Children’s Place since my kids rudely became adult-sized and I can no longer put together an entire season’s wardrobe for them for around $50 (harumph). But then sometimes I remember to check and I’m all “Wait, look at all the stuff they have now!”

Today is one of those days.

Back in my day (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth…) the only adult-sized stuff they carried was pajamas, before the holidays. You could get matching jammies for the whole family, if you wanted. But apparently now they also carry adult t-shirts, with mom-and-me and dad-and-me options, plus whole-family options. Is it too early to think about Mother’s Day and Father’s Day? No, it is not.

Today everything is on sale and every order ships for free. May I humbly suggest that you buy your favorite father the pizza t-shirt and then get slice-of-pizza shirts for all the kids? Because that is hilarious and also really cheap today. Plus there’s Clearance items starting at around $2, for your regular kid-outfitting. Go!
