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.

Got fan?

If you’re looking for an affordable small-but-mighty fan as we head into the summer months, look no further than this Honeywell HT-900 TurboForce fan, currently down to just $12.79 at Amazon (its lowest price ever).

I bought this one last year for a couple of bucks more for my finicky “I’m too hot! I can’t sleep when I’m too hot!!” princess, and it’s served us well. She uses it every night in the summer and it’s powerful but quiet. I mean, sure, I’m a big fan (ha! pun unintentional!) of our Vornado fans as well (the comparable model to this would be this one, I think), but at this price point, the Honeywell is truly the best bang for the buck.

Save until midnight

Need to stock up on makeup? You’ve got until midnight (Mountain Time, I think) to place a $30+ order over at eyes lips face and you can take 40% off nearly everything with coupon code SUMMER (some exclusions apply).

Get up to $35+ after coupon, and your order ships for free, too.

Everything at elf is already very affordable (and surprisingly good quality, in my experience), so this is a great deal if you’re ready to stock up.

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.

Huge savings on undies!

(Originally I titled this “Huge undies savings” and then realized that was… something else. And not what I meant.)

I’m a sucker for the panties over at Aerie, mostly because it’s surprisingly hard to find casual/comfortable cotton undies in things like hipster and boy-short cuts. Their stuff fits the bill, but unless you catch ’em on sale, the price is silly. Well hey, today they’re doing their “10 Pairs for $30″ promotion, plus free shipping, which means all your favorite styles drop from anywhere from $7.50 – $12.50 apiece to just $3 apiece.

Of course, you have to buy 10 in order to get the promo price, but if you buy 10, you can throw out all of your old grubby stuff. You’re welcome.

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.

And now stock up for the teens

Now through Memorial Day at American Eagle, they’re doing a BOGO 50% off on the AEO collection, plus an extra 50% off all Clearance, plus everything ships for free.

This is my favorite kind of sale with them, because if I just want to pick up one t-shirt for my kid or whatever, I don’t have to pay to ship it. Score!

Children’s Place stock-up time!

Just about everything over at Children’s Place is marked at least 50% off, right now, plus there’s free shipping on every order, plus you can use coupon code SU15DM20FAF on top of that for another 20% off. Perfect! You can grab those last few summer necessities on the cheap, and then you won’t even feel all that bitter when they outgrow it all before August.

Free shipping ends today, by the way. I mean, until the next time they decide to do it.

You’ve got the cutest little baby shoes

If you love all things Robeez for tiny tots, head on over to and search for Robeez to find 5 different designs that are all just $9.99 shipped, today. I’m partial to the Digi Dino ones but at 60% off, any of ’em are a great deal.

(Don’t need them for your own kid? Robeez make great baby shower gifts and people will think you spent a lot more than you did. You’re welcome.)

The best part of summer…

… is (are?) the hummingbirds outside my office window.

A couple of years ago, I bought a hummingbird feeder from Amazon during the holiday lightning deals in November. Then I waited patiently (sort of) until May when I could hang that baby up and watch the show out my window whenever I get bored. I love having that feeder, but the one I bought doesn’t have a wide mouth, so it’s nearly impossible to clean. (I use a tiny little brush on a wire designed for cleaning reusable straws, but it’s tedious and hard to aim inside the bottle.)

Today, finally, the Amazon Gold Box is filled with Perky Pet hummingbird feeders, and while most of them are probably there because they’re the old, narrow-neck design, the 710B copper one has a wider mouth for ease of filling and cleaning. For $11, I’m finally upgrading.

(By the way, it comes with “free nectar mix,” but the best nectar for hummingbirds is simply a 4-to-1 solution of water to sugar, boiled for at least a minute to help kill bacteria, then cooled. They don’t need any red food dye or other additives.)
