Here, kitty kitty kitty…

I offer this deal with the caveat that I am not a Cat Person and so I don’t know if there’s some obvious reason that a cat would dislike this fancy-pants litter box. That said, right now Amazon has this Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box for just $27.29 shipping in Frustration-Free Packaging (its lowest price ever).

Apparently you just roll the box to the side when it’s time to empty (note: make sure there’s not a cat inside), and the yucky stuff falls into a scoop for each removal and the clean litter is filtered out. Magic! Or as magical as removing cat waste from a box inside your house can get, I suppose, without going all the way to one of those robotic boxes that actually sweep through for you at the touch of a button.

This is the most words I’ve ever said/typed about cat excretion, ever. You’re welcome.

Friends & Family time at Puma

It turns out that Puma makes way more than sneakers, and right now is a great time to save with them—everything they sell is an additional 40% off when you use coupon code FFSAVINGS. That code works even on top of already-reduced sale prices, and shipping is free on all orders, too.

I’m digging their ballet flats. The only thing better than a super-cute casual shoe is one that’s super-cute but feels like a sneaker!

Homemade espresso, hold the high price tag

Me, I’m a simple gal with simple needs—while I enjoy espresso (when it magically appears in front of me), I’m fine with a regular coffeemaker that just brews a decent cup of joe in the morning. I’m lazy, I guess, plus I don’t really want to think too hard about my coffee before I’ve had coffee.

But! Every so often we visit my parents and my stepmom makes cappuccino every morning with her fancy-pants machine. And that stuff is amazing. And then my husband and I have conversations like this:
Me: We should buy a fancy machine!
Him: Or stay here forever.
Me: We should stay here forever!
Him: I was kidding.

(It’s magical. Obviously.)

Anyway, the thing is, today Home.Woot has a refurbished Breville Espresso Machine available for $230 + $5 shipping, and while this is crazy expensive for a coffeemaker, it’s actually crazy cheap for this particular one—the regular price at Amazon is $500 new. Check out the reviews there, though, because everyone loves this unit, and at this price, if you were considering upgrading, this might be the right time.

I’m actually tempted. I mean, it’s cheaper than moving back home again, right?

It’s the accent

Does viewing BBC Earth programs make you smarter? Probably. If nothing else, I contend that anything narrated by David Attenborough makes you feel smarter. So check out today’s Amazon Gold Box and click on the bonus deal for up to 79% off select titles. They’re educational and riveting.

And hey… maybe a good teacher gift for your favorite science educator…? Just a thought.

Get your Starbucks on (in your Keurig)

Love Starbucks? Love your Keurig? It’s a great time to stock up—through September 5th, shop K-cups at the Starbucks store and you can use coupon code KCUPBOGO to buy 1, get 1 free, and there’s no limit to how many you can buy. Looks to me like shipping is a flat $4.95 on your order, too, so stock up to make it the best deal.

The only thing better would be a BOGO on coffee IVs. I’ve been looking for one of those for a long time….

Halloween? Yeah, Halloween.

I know that—at least to me—Halloween still seems impossibly far off, but really, it’s September, and Halloween is on its way. (Is it me, or was this the fastest summer ever in the history of summers? Seemed like it.)

If Halloween’s your thing, today is the day to hit BuyCostumes: they’re having a one-day-only sale extravaganza!

First, they have a bunch of “Pumpkin Busters” (like Door Busters, I guess) going on, with crazy low prices on costumes for everyone from babies to adults. There’s also “orange tag” items of under $10. Then you can also—today only—use coupon code Orange25 for an additional 25% off!

Do they have Frozen costumes? Yep, they do. Good luck finding one of those in October, by the way. Just sayin’.

He needed it, okay?

Yes, I live in Georgia. Yes, it rarely gets that cold here. Yes, my pampered, somewhat health-compromised second dog can’t even really go for proper walks. (In our family we refer to it as him going for “a carry.”) And yes, okay, fine, I just bought him a coat.

Sometimes it gets cold. I don’t want him to be chilly. Stop looking at me like that.

Well, you see, there’s a great 30% off coupon going today at Lands’ End—just use coupon code PUMPKIN with PIN 1606—and it works on clearance and they had doggie squall jackets for, like, $8 before the coupon. Also they had a bunch of other stuff we needed.

Shipping is free on $50+, and returns are free at your local Sears store.

And Duncan is totally going to wear that jacket this winter. I’ll send you a picture.

Shoes, shoes, shoes

Labor Day means sales, and you know I am nothing if not a keen finder of sales on shoes. So:

Today’s bonus Gold Box Deal is 8 different styles of Pearl Izumi running shoes, all at at least 50% off. I’m considering a pair of M3s, myself. That’s a hard price to beat.

All of the great Labor Day specials have already started over at, with deep discounts on darn near everything.

And at, coupon code SALE25 takes an extra 25% off anything that’s already on sale.

Happy long weekend, made happier with shoe deals.
