It’s time to Kohls again

Oh, we haven’t had a great combination of Kohls sales/coupons for a little while, which is weird, because Kohls is pretty much synonymous with sales and coupons. Hey, that’s fine. I’ll take it whenever it happens.

So here we go: Everyone gets $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent through April 15th, plus automatic free shipping on $75+ (shipping to your local store and picking up is always free), and through April 12th, coupon code SPRINGSAVE takes 20% off $100+ or 15% off a smaller order. If you have a Kohls charge card—which you do, right, because that’s how you get the best deals—you can use coupon code BUNNY30, instead, for 30% off any order, plus you can use code APR4FREE for free shipping on any size order.

Those percent off coupons can be stacked with department-targeted coupons, as well: STYLE10 takes $10 off your $40+ purchase in Juniors or Big Girls (7-16), PLAYTIME15 takes 15% off Melissa & Doug toys, and MENSTYLE10 takes $10 off your $50+ purchase of men’s clothing and shoes.

As always, there’s tons of great deals in the Clearance, so I start there. (Pssst, folks with kids heading off to college in the fall—this is a great time to pick up towels and other dorm-stuffs before they jack the prices up and start screaming “college prep!” this summer.)

April Beauty Boxes, no foolin’

I kept checking the Target site for an early release of this month’s beauty box, and finally figured maybe they weren’t going to have one. Well, the joke’s on me—they have two options this month (even if we weren’t able to snag ’em early).

Choose from the regular April Beauty Box or the April Naturals Beauty Box.

Both are $24 worth of products for just $7, and while the first box has a full-size Sally Hanson Double Duty top/base coat (easily worth $7 on its own), the second one appeals to my crunchy hippie side. Heck, who am I kidding? I’m going to get them both.

Get Sneaky (right now)

Oh! One of my very favorite things is available on Lightning Deal at Amazon right now and you should go get it.

Sneaky Cards are a deck of 55 “dares” which can be distributed on the sly to just about anyone, anywhere. It’s a great “pay it forward” way to evoke gratitude, silliness, and/or daring. My kids love these, and so do I. The list price is $10, and the Lightning Deal has them available for just $7.

I’m snapping up a deck to leave with my newest college kid when we drop him off in August. *sniffle*

Up to 92% off? I’m there!

Some deals are easy—something like “this item is now marked down this much, go get it.”

Others require a bit more work, but they can pay off big if you have the time. This is one of those times: Right now Sierra Trading Post has taken a new round of markdowns in their Clearance, with discounts all the way up to 92% off, but most in the 60%-80% range (still nothing to sneeze at). You can also use coupon code ETJXR0317 to get free shipping on any size order.

If you haven’t shopped STP before, they specialize in outdoorsy kinds of clothing and gear, but you needn’t assume that’s all they have. I’ve gotten some super cute clothing for my kids there, housewares, and often really good deals on pet supplies, too. They have a little of everything. If you have the time to dig around a little, I doubt you’ll be disappointed.

Crock on the go!

If you know me, you know I am an absolute fool for slow cookers. Sure, everyone else has moved on to the Insta-Pot craze, but I’m just over here with my 5 slow cookers, still enjoying making my house smell good all day. Anyway, I just saw this and in addition to feeding my crock pot addiction, it made me *squee* just a little bit because 1) holy good deal and 2) so cute!

Check it out: the online Crock-Pot Store is running a special where you can buy three of their adorable lunch warmers for $30 (that’s half off) and you’ll get free shipping. (Also, for reference: Still $20-$28 apiece at Amazon, and averaging 4.5 stars with over 1,600 reviews!)

Hey, we’re a family of four. Is this perfect for my husband’s office, and my kids’ dorms? Yup. Guess who’ll be getting personal warmers for Christmas? That’s right—everyone! (Your family might not need three of these? I think this would be a really cool teacher gift, too.) At $10/pop I can’t resist, and I also love that they can each get their own color. I am all over this one.

Score some Reebok deals

For a limited time, go visit the Reebok Outlet online and use coupon code XY7-TWH-N6G for 50% off and free shipping!

Sizes and selection are limited, but if you can find something you want, it’s a heck of a deal. (For once, I’m thrilled my kid wears a relatively small shoe.)

Spring into huge savings at Eddie

Ready to save big at Eddie Bauer? Their Spring Sale is on, and coupon code CLOVER gives you an additional 40% off almost everything, even Clearance items.

As much of a fool as I am for Eddie’s clothing (maybe in part due to some vanity sizing they have going on there… I wear a smaller size there than anywhere else!), I love love love their gear. With graduation and summer travel season coming up, check out the deals on their Stowaway bags, all of which are absolute steals after the coupon, and work well for bringing home souvenirs or hauling stuff to college and then folding up tiny in the closet. Get some for yourself or to give as gifts. (You’ll look like a big spender without breaking the bank.)

Shipping is free on your $99+ order (or your $25+ order, if you have Shoprunner), otherwise it starts at $7.99. What a great excuse to pick up a few things for yourself while buying gifts….

It’s Tent Sale time at Oneida

It happens once a year, and now’s the time: Oneida‘s Tent Sale is happening right now. That means there’s markdowns all over the place, plus you can take another 20% off with coupon code TENT20.

Shipping is free on your $49+ order, otherwise it’s a flat $2.99.

This is one of my favorite sales, because I always head in there intending to pick up replacement lids or whatever, and then I end up getting a whole new storage set or new glassware, instead. I mean, I don’t mean to, but sometimes it just happens that way.

Heads up for organization (at home or in the dorm)

Ready to vanquish the clutter at home, or starting to think about what your college kid will need in the dorm? Look no further than today’s Special Buys of the Day at Home Depot, where today only (it’s Tuesday, March 14: Pi Day!) you’ll find up to 40% off a couple dozen different storage/organization solutions from brands like Closet Maid and Honey-Can-Do. There’s shelves, carts, rolling racks… you name it, they’ve got it, discounted for the day. You’re officially out of excuses for not getting organized.

(Deal number 2 across the bottom of that page—the 4-foot ClosetMAX system with the storage shelves and double-bar—is particularly good for tiny dorm closets. I speak from experience.)

If you prefer your apples flat

Remember back before you had kids, when you thought that if you raised them a certain way they’d be a certain way? And then how, after you had actual children, you realized your foolishness? Good times. I’m here to tell you that I have two children and one of them will happily eat any piece of fruit handed to him and the other one has all sorts of rules about what makes fruit acceptable and life is simply too short for that foolishness.

Except: Dried fruit always works, with her. I don’t know why. Maybe because that seems more like candy to my darling sugar-hound? Perhaps.

So I basically snap up Stretch Island Fruit Leathers for her whenever I see them on sale—because they’re just fruit, and fruit juice, and nothing else—and send them off to her dorm, and hope she doesn’t end up with scurvy or whatever. She’s about to get this 30-pack of apple strips because Amazon has marked it down to $5.78 (lowest price ever), plus when I order via Subscribe & Save and have 5+ subscriptions that price drops to just $4.91, or about $.16/strip.

Listen, I’d rather she take the bag of apples I offer every single time she’s home, for sure, but this is better than nothing. Or gummi bears. So.
