Clear the rack!

It’s one of my favorite sales of the year—Nordstrom Rack has taken an additional 25% off already-deeply-discounted clearance items.

Shipping is a flat $7.95 on orders of less than $100, and free after that.

If you have Nordstrom taste but a TJ Maxx budget, this is the sale where the heavens open and the angels sing. I have gotten some of my favorite things off the clearance rack here, for prices I can stomach. Go forth and score.

For the kids who just keep growing

It’s been a while since I posted a deal at Children’s Place, but today’s a good day to hop over there if you have a need—they’re offering free shipping and an extra 40% off everything with coupon code ONLINE40! This offer is good through the end of the day tomorrow (October 1st).

Enjoy your shopping there while it lasts. Now that my teens are full-adult-sized humans everything costs a lot more and I’m a little bitter.

Tuesday? Kohlsday!

If you’ve been waiting for the planets to align with all of the possible discounts at Kohls, wait no longer—today everything is coming up savings.

First of all, they’ve got a big sale running (surprise!) (not really). Second, everyone earns $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. Third, everyone gets free shipping on $75+ or free shipping to your local store. Fourth, everyone can take 15% off any order with coupon code HAYRIDE. And fifth (fifth? yes?), Kohls card holders can get free shipping on any order with coupon code MVC4FREE and an additional 30% off with code TREAT30.

I know they do this pretty regularly, but if you—like me—sometimes forget to check until you need something, well, there you go. Now’s a good time to shop.

I figured it out

Personally, the whole UGG boot trend is a little puzzling to me, but then again, I also wondered why a brand would want to call themselves “UGG.” And then it hit me—it’s the sound we parents make when our kids ask for $200 boots. (“Ugh.” See?)

So I guess what I’m saying is that I am not necessarily a huge fan, but I know some folks are, and in perusing the giant UGG sale over at today, I’m actually seeing 1) discounts of up to 70% off and 2) offering that don’t make me say “ugh.” They have some cute stuff, once you get past the big wooly boots that look like slippers on steroids.

(They should hire me to write their marketing copy. Didn’t that just totally sell you?)

Heads up, fellow nerds (and parents of nerdlings)

I’m sorry, but I cannot stop laughing at today’s Shirt.Woot offering. It’s perfect. Two words: Schrodinger’s Emoticon.

(Yeah, yeah, yeah… I’m easily amused. What of it?)

Have you tried it yet?

If you haven’t tried Schoola yet, what are you waiting for? Sign up through my link and you’ll get $15 credit, plus every order ships for free right now with coupon code SHIPIT.

We’ve ordered from them a ton and had only one problem (and they refunded me immediately when I contacted them). If you’ve not checked ’em out yet, now’s your chance. Great gently-used clothes for you and the kids, at great prices. I know I keep posting about them, but only because I’m such a fan, myself!

Eddie Bauer’s doing it again

Once more, with feeling: It’s another great sale at Eddie Bauer, plus everyone gets free shipping, plus you can use coupon code RAPID for an extra 25% off nearly everything.

Those great toiletry bags that were on special about a month ago seem to be gone, but there’s a few other travel bag type deals, plus a ton of clothing clearance. Get it while the getting’s good!

Sale on all things Charlotte

If you love Charlotte Russe—or, like me, you have a teenager who does—you’re going to want to take a run through their sale section, right now. Most shoes are an additional 50% off when you add them to your cart, and it looks like most of the clothing recently went through another round of markdowns.

Follow the prompt to sign up for their email list and you’ll get free shipping, too. (You can always unsubscribe later.) Otherwise, shipping is a flat $5 or free on orders of $50+.

Even better: Use coupon code STUDENTRATE for an additional 10% off.

I wouldn’t necessarily consider Charlotte Russe the place to get timeless or long-lasting pieces, but it’s a very affordable place to pick up items that are on-trend when your teen insists that of course she has to have it.

Shoes for all and all for shoes

Still scrambling for back-to-school shoes? Or thinking ahead to needing boots for the cold weather and/or dressy shoes for special events? Payless has you covered, of course, and they remain my favorite place to buy shoes for fast-growing feet (because the prices mean I don’t have to cry when shoes are outgrown after just a few wearings).

Right now they’re doing a Buy One, Get One 1/2 off, plus you can use coupon code 251463328 for an additional 25% off. Any order can be shipped to your local store for free, and orders of $25+ can be shipped to your home for free. They offer free returns, too! Basically there’s no downside here.

Go ahead and buy the next size up for the kids. Trust me on this one.

Happy Labor Day savings from everyone

Is there a store not having a sale this weekend? I can’t find it, if so. Crazy good deals abound, so buckle in if you’re up for some shopping.

At Lord & Taylor, every order ships for free, and coupon code LABORDAY takes 25% off clearance and 20% off everything else. (I tend to think of them as being “too rich for my blood,” but there are some screaming clearance deals right now.)

At JC Penney, code PICNIC4U is taking $10 off your $25+ purchase, plus there are alternate codes on the site for percentages off if you’re spending more. Orders of $99+ ship to your home for free; orders of $25+ ship to your local store for free.

At Macy’s, orders of $75+ ship for free, and choose from code DEALS25 for $10 off $25+ order code DEALS for an up-to-20% off.

And Bon-Ton is joining the fray with free shipping on $25+ with code FREESHIP25, plus code SPTLBRDAY15 is taking up to 25% additional off all sale merchandise.

It’s a good day score some deals, is my point. I’m still combing through the Lord & Taylor sale, myself….
