Busted? Half-price!

If you love goofy t-shirts, look no further than BustedTees, plus look right now because they’re doing a limited-time special where everything is half off. Add any $20 shirt to your cart and *poof* it’s just $10.

This is one of the places I like to get t-shirts for my hard-to-please teens. (And also sometimes for me, but don’t tell them that.)

It’s a beautiful day for a Last Call

I love Last Call by Neiman Marcus, anyway, but today there’s even more to love—in addition to a bunch of additional markdowns just taken on their clearance items, today you can use coupon code AUGWLC10 for an additional $10 off your $50+ purchase.

Shipping is free on $99+ with code LCSHIP, or free on whatever if you have Shoprunner (and you can always sign up for a free trial of that).

Also I’m really glad I found this sale after the kids left for school. Popping up a Nordstrom Rack browser window is like a Pavlovian signal to my oldest to start saying, “I want that one, and that one, and that one….”

Fall into 40% off

Ready to stock up at Gap? Today (Friday, August 21st) only, shop all you like there and coupon code BDAY will take 40% off and give you free shipping.

Do check out the exclusions—there are many, like women’s swimwear and kids’ sleepwear—but I tested it on a few sale items and it worked. And we all know the best way to use a coupon is on the stuff already on sale, anyway!

Summer and travel clearance at Eddie

I do love a sale at Eddie Bauer, and this end-of-summer clearance they have going on right now is exactly my speed. Save up to 70% on season’s end items, plus 40-50% on their Travex line of clothing and gear. Snap up those markdowns on things like the Expedition Hanging Kit now and look like a big-shot when you’re doing graduation gifts next spring (trust me).

The site has a code for free shipping on your $99+ order, but get free shipping on any order with code BEYOND ALIVE, so order as much or as little as you like.

Flash Tuesday!

Still have back-to-school clothes shopping to do? Check out Flash Tuesday today over at Macy’s—they’ve literally got thousands of today-only discounts happening, plus everyone gets free shipping on orders of just $25+. It’s a perfect time to round out those wardrobes or pick up some other home items you’ve been wanting.

Some of these deals are ridiculously good. In just a short time of poking around I’ve found some amazing discounts on bras and infant clothing. (Yeah, those look weird together. Try to overlook that.)

Deals end tonight at midnight, so get going if you’re interested.

Kick off the week with Lilly deals

I’m not really a Lilly Pulitzer fan, myself—I’m more of a “funny t-shirt and cargo shorts” type than an “effortless floral shift” type—but I know a lot of women who just love her stuff. Of course, I also know a lot of women who would never, ever pay full price for Lilly stuff, because they want to look great but also want to be able to feed their kids and other frivolous things like that.

Anyway! Today you’ve got two places to save big on Lilly: If you look in the Amazon Gold Box, the first deal along the Lightning Deal line is actually a full-day deal on Lilly Pulitzer clothing—up to 70% off. And then if you look at the first splash page deal today over at, that’s discounted Lilly stuff, too! I guess it makes sense, with them all being owned by the same folks, now, but I’m seeing different deals between the two sites.

If you love Lilly, this is a good day to scoop up a deal.

Back-to-school shoe cool

Are skater shoes a hit in your house? It doesn’t come any cooler than DC Shoes, if so, and right now on top of their sale prices and always free ground shipping, you can apply coupon code DC40 for an additional 40% off!

There’s various accessories and some clothing in addition to shoes, but whatever you buy, you’ll be saving big.

Converse cool, then and now

I love that when I was a young teen, the in thing was Converse sneakers, and now the in thing for my teens is… Converse sneakers. They still love them even when I tell them I used to wear them (which is, of course, super embarrassing) and even when I wear mine now (beyond embarrassing, I’m sure). Ha!

Today at Converse online, you can take an extra 25% off just about everything with coupon code SUMMER25. Plus there’s free shipping for a limited time, so even if all you want is some replacement laces, you’re covered. But if you combine the coupon and some of the stuff in the Sale section, you could be sending your kids back to school in style without breaking the bank.

Last day for doorbusters at Kohls

I don’t know how I almost missed this one, but it’s another perfect time to shop at Kohls and reap aaaaaaaall the rewards. Check it out:

There’s thousands of doorbusters happening through the end of today. Pro tip: Still missing a few items for your college freshman? There’s tons of dorm deals, including lots of twinXL bedding.

Earn $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend (after coupons).

Shipping is free to your local store for pickup, or on $75+ for everyone to your home, or Kohls card holders can use code FREE4MVC for free home shipping on any size order.

Everyone can use code BACK2SCHOOL for 15% off, or Kohls card holders can use code SLUSHIE for an additional 30% off.

Am I a sucker for Kohls during these promotions? Absolutely. I spent $100, saved $180 between sales/coupons, and I’ll get $20 Kohls Cash for next time. Hard to argue with that.

Back-to-school cool for the tweens/teens

Nothing I do seems to sway my teen daughter from her love of all things Aeropostale. (And it’s not that I don’t like their stuff, it’s that I feel like an inordinate percentage of their stuff is simply an advertisement for their store. I don’t want a store name taking up the entire front of my shirt. Also, get off my lawn.)

Anyway! Get ready for back to school and make your kids happy—shop Aero today and you can take advantage of their “Employee Discount” pricing: code BTS30 will take an extra 30% off of absolutely everything. It even works on Clearance! This is a way to get them what they want without paying crazy prices.

Shipping is free on $75+. I’d like to suggest you spend less, but if your teens are anything like mine, yeah, good luck with that.
