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.

Get this popular Naked palette before it’s gone

If you know me in my outside-the-computer life, you know I’m not a huge makeup person. I wear makeup for stage and the occasional dressing-up event and most of the time I can’t be bothered. But when I do buy makeup, I tend to buy the good stuff.

I’m not entirely sure why Urban Decay is about to discontinue one of their most popular Naked eyeshadow palettes, but I know that I’ve been trying to justify the cost of one for forever and today’s the day I bit, and here’s why: Right now Belk has the original Naked palette available for half-price (just $27, vs. the regular $54), and—confusingly, but I’m not complaining—while the beauty coupon advertised on the site cannot be applied for an additional discount, coupon code BELKDAYS20 can be used for an additional 10% off. Shipping on Beauty is automatically free, so you’re scoring the only fancy eyeshadow palette you’ll ever need for about $24 to your door.

Now, I like the new Naked palettes, too, but 1) to my mind, this is the most versatile set of neutrals they’ve ever made and 2) I’m sure not ever going to pay $54, so, win-win.

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.)

Stocking stuffers? Teacher gifts? Why not both??

I buy a big stash of “goodies” from The Body Shop a few times a year, and then I’m ready for anything. Little thank-you gifts? Check! Stocking stuffers for my children who have inexplicably turned into adults? Check! A yummy body butter to use in the middle of winter when it’s dark and cold and I need a pick-me-up? Check!!

Today’s a good day to get on over there and check out the sale items because 1) they’re running a huge sale, 2) there’s free ground shipping on every order, and 3) secret coupon code 5SEASONAL also takes their “seasonal” full-size body butters down to just $5 each. (This includes Vanilla Marshmallow, Vanilla Pumpkin, Berry Bonbon, and Peppermint Candy Cane.)

Happy shopping!

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….)

But I never miss a Chaco sale

Hello! Still not dead! Just, you know, not doing much deal-hunting these days. I could offer a long litany of explanations/excuses, but you don’t care, anyway, and that is not why I’m here. I’m here because right now there are all kinds of discounts happening at Chaco, and if you—like me—live in a hippie-dippy college town, these are pretty much the unofficial footwear of your people. I finally succumbed and bought my first pair last year and they are amaaaaaaazing. I don’t know why I waited so long. (Wait. Yes I do! I waited because they’re expensive and rarely go on sale.)

Anyway, right now they’ve got a ton of items in the Sale section, plus coupon code CHACOSEPT30 takes another 30% off ‘most everything. Shipping is free, too (in fact, with the coupon, even Express shipping is free). If you don’t need the absolute latest style, this is a great way to scoop up some favorites for about half price.

Now that I’ve bought my family some sandals, I’m going back into my cave.

Shoe-bee-doo-shoe

Love the comfort and durability of Clarks shoes? I do, and while I realize this causes my kids to tell me I am old, I do not care. I especially do not care because today they’re having a flash sale, and that means an additional 40% off sale styles with coupon code FLASH40. Shipping is free.

Some cute new sandals for me, some durable work shoes for the husband. Also, they have some pretty adorable socks, too. And even some winter boots on sale. (And purses!! I didn’t know they did purses.) It’s a sale worth checking out for sure.

Friends & Family and even better savings

If you hop on over to Eddie Bauer right now, you’ll see they’re doing their Friends & Family promotion—coupon code SHARE takes an additional 40% off almost everything, plus you’ll get free shipping on your $49+ order. 40% off is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you use it on Clearance items, so I’m definitely not knocking that sale at all. There’s great bargains to be had.

But! If you’re ready for winter to hurry up and get here, allow me to make it even better for you: Women’s boots and outerwear already on clearance can be reduced by an additional 60% when you use coupon code EXTRA60, instead. 60% off clearance on some of the highest-rated jackets/gear around? That’s enough to make even me wish for winter.

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….

Allow me to spread the KitchenAid love

Have I gone on and on (and on and on and on) here about my love for my Professional KitchenAid mixer? I feel like I have. I make triple batches of cookies with ease, not to mention that bread dough (even when I don’t feel the “need to knead” to work out some aggression) is no match for its power. It may well be my favorite kitchen gadget. (Well, it ties my BlendTec blender, for sure.) And if I haven’t mentioned it before, my husband got mine for me, on a refurb deal, because he’s a romantic. (You don’t think that’s romantic? We have an interesting love language. And you are probably younger than I am. Get off my lawn, whippersnapper.)

Anyway! How exciting was it to pop up the Amazon Gold Box this morning and discover that they’ve got three different colors of KitchenAid Professional 6-quart Bowl Lift Stand Mixers for just $219 shipped, today only? So exciting!! Seriously. I mean, we all know the “original prices” on Amazon are fairy tales, but still, $219 is the lowest price they’ve ever had on this model, plus the average regular price is around $380. So it’s not quite the half-off they’re saying it is, but a darn good deal, regardless.

If you don’t own one of these beauties and have been waiting on a sale, today’s the day to bite. This mixer is a do-it-all a workhorse and you will not regret it.
