Thinking ahead to fall?

It was with great sadness this morning that I pulled out my younger teen’s next pair of sneakers. I’d been hoping the pair he was wearing would make it through the summer—and it was so close—but ’twas not to be. This was also a good reminder that soon we’re back to school and not too long after that, it’ll be getting cold again.

There’s a ton of new sale items over at UNIQLO, but of particular note are the “ultra light down” jackets and vests for both men and women—these are the lowest prices we’re going to see until the end-of-winter clearance, I’d guess.

Of course, they’ve also got cute t-shirts for the teens (or you; I don’t judge) and a variety of other goodies, too. Worth checking out. Shipping is free on your $50+ order.

Now’s the time for Chromecast

If you’ve been thinking about nabbing a Google Chromecast—the simple, inexpensive way to stream web content on your TV from your computer—today’s the day to do it: Right now Amazon is running a bonus promotion where you can get the $29.99 dongle and pick up a $10 Amazon gift card for free. That’s basically like getting 33% off, and it’s not like you’ll have to look too hard to find something to spend that gift card on later.

If you don’t have a Roku or an AppleTV, this is a cheap alternative. This is also a great way to make yourself very popular with a kid heading off to college next month.

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.

Vamp up your Vera

If you love all things Vera Bradley, now’s the time to shop—they’re offering free shipping on all orders, plus free monogramming on eligible items.

They have some simply darling baby clothes and a bunny lovey that would look like very expensive gifts even though they’re marked way down. Just a suggestion.

Find the perfect furnishing touch

Furnishing touch, get it? Finishing touch, furnishing touch…? I’ve had a little extra coffee today.

Anyhoo, today if you shop at Home Decorators Collection for everything your home needs, you’ll get an extra 25% off and free shipping on over a thousand already-marked-down items. The sale ends at midnight tonight, so hop to it if you’re interested.

There are more items in my house from HDC than I should probably admit. Every time they have a big sale like this, I find something else we need, and usually at a ridiculous discount.

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.

Get a great little fan, cheap

The last time I posted this Honeywell TurboForce Fan, it was down to $14.79—its lowest price ever, at the time—and I went ahead and bought one for myself and it was promptly commandeered by one of my kids (and has been in faithful service ever since). Today, it’s down to $12.79, the new lowest price ever, and it’s an even better deal.

This is the perfect little bedroom fan if you need one. At this price, it’s a no-brainer.

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.]

Bag better savings at Bloomies

Yes, sure, most of the time, Bloomingdale’s is too rich for my blood, but they do have pretty awesome clearance, plus right now you can use coupon code SUNSHINE to take an additional $20 off every $50 you spend on already-reduced merchandise. So, shipping is free on $150+, and you’d save an extra $60 on a $150 purchase. Nice!

There is a list of excluded items/brands, but if you can find stuff that’s covered by the additional discount, it’s a pretty sweet 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!)
