Fall? Finally??

It was 42 degrees out this morning when I woke up. Gloooooorious! (Fall takes a while to get to Georgia, y’all.) It’s warmer now, of course, but I think summer may finally be coming to an end. I’m wearing jeans. I am more excited about this than is maybe reasonable.

Be that as it may, if you’re going to need a new coat for the upcoming winter—or anything else, really—today (Tuesday, October 17th) you can take 50% off one regularly-priced item at Lands’ End. Just use coupon code HARVEST with PIN 1410.

When I still lived up in the frozen north, I had one of their stadium squall coats and it got me through many frigid winters. That would be overkill for me here, but I mention it because I really did love that coat a lot.

I remember when they didn’t have color

I’m old enough to remember when White House Black Market actually only sold clothes in black and white. My first reaction was “… the heck??” and that rapidly gave way to “Oh, but this stuff is really nice!” Nowadays they sell all sorts of colors and patterns, but I still get a giggle remembering how “innovative” it seemed, back in the day.

Anyway! Right now they’re offering an additional 50% off select clearance items (they’re all clearly marked) when you apply coupon code 63679. If you’ve never shopped there before, I can assure you their clothes are insanely well-made and a bargain at these reduced prices. I only own a few pieces but they’ve held up for many years.

Shipping is a flat $5.95 or you can join their rewards program for free and get free shipping.

Got Ts? Go get ’em!

If you love Threadless like we love Threadless, get on over there today (Tuesday, October 3rd)—nearly every t-shirt is just $10, today only.

They’ve got nerdy shirts, snarky shirts, pretty shirts, political shirts… they’ve got it all, really. My kids each have dozens of shirts and yet, I can never pass by this sale. It’s possible we have a problem. It’s also possible I don’t care.

Scoot over to Schoola

If there’s anything I like better than scoring some crazy deals at my local thrift stores, it’s definitely finding the same sorts of deals online so that I don’t even have to get dressed first. Today and tomorrow, shop Schoola and you can save even more—use coupon code COZY70 to take 70% off your purchase of pre-owned clothes for the whole family (coupon will not work on “new with tags” items). You can use the coupon on more than one order, looks like, although you need to get on it (it expires September 29th).

I will shamelessly admit to shopping for myself, there, more than for the kids, but in addition to everything else they offer, they used to be my favorite destination for “oh my gosh I need a prom/homecoming/fancy occasion dress, Mom!” emergencies. Why pay hundreds of dollars when you can go cheap and no one will ever know you didn’t buy it new?

Shipping is free on your $25+ post-discount order of up to 10 items. Go forth and score.

40% off for Friends and Family, today only

Do I ever pay full price at Lands’ End? Of course not, although it’s probably worth it. There’s always a sale or code to be had, and that’s when I swoop in.

Gone are the days when I needed to pick up new Squall jackets every season (Welcome to Georgia! Motto: Winter here is like spring everywhere else!), but they still have plenty of goodies I love. Somehow I almost missed their Friends & Family event this year, but they’ve extended it for one more day, which means you have all of today (Wednesday, September 27th) to stock up for winter or whatever. (Note: the code does not work on Sale/Clearance items, this time ’round. Sad trombone.)

Note: The code that’s showing on the site is good for only 30% off. This one will get you 40% off, so save even more and feel superior. Use code BUDDIES with PIN 6433. Shipping is free on your $50+ order, and remember you can still make free in-person returns at a local Sears store. (This is me not telling you to order extra just to get free shipping and then return the overage locally, this is just me mentioning that little factoid so that you may draw your own conclusions. Obviously.)

75% off clearance for the kids

Here they go again—right now Children’s Place is taking an extra 75% off everything in the clearance, and that means you can stock up on just about everything for pennies on the dollar.

Shipping is free. The sale is today (Tuesday, September 26th) only and deals are going fast, so don’t delay if you’re interested.

It’s a rare deal on top-shelf shoes for the kids

Personally, I never loved my kids enough to buy them shoes from Stride Rite. They had perfectly average feet and the prices there always made me feel a little faint. But I’ve heard that for kids with wide feet, or various orthotic issues, or even just kids whose parents are a lot nicer than me, Stride Rite is the place to get the best shoes for little ones.

Today (Monday, September 18th) they’re having a flash sale—select styles are just $19.99 with free shipping when you use coupon code SHOESDAY. I’m seeing eligible options that started at $60, so this is not the deal to miss if you’re into their shoes for your kids. It’s not just past-season stuff, either. There’s sandals, sure, but also sneakers and boots and dress shoes. Hundreds of options! Get going.

Got tweens/teens? Get what they want

If your kid want “cool” clothes, look no further than Tilly’s, and if you want those cool clothes at a reasonable price, go check out their clearance right now—nearly everything is an additional 50% off.

The site is advertising automatic free shipping at $59, but why not get free shipping on any order? Just use code DNFS. That will allow you to go ahead and pick up, say, some Unicorn Snot (actual product name!) (relax; it’s lip gloss) without paying shipping.

I love these Tilly’s sales for fashion sneakers and such, but mostly I love them for stocking stuffers. Because really, who doesn’t need Unicorn Snot?

Back to civilization… and Kohls

So. Hi! Things are slowly getting back to normal. Yesterday I threw away (almost) everything in the fridge and freezer and went ahead and cleaned said fridge/freezer while I was at it, and while I am grateful my family came out of everything relatively unscathed, I could’ve happily gone my whole life without discovering how disgusting our appliances were. But that’s okay, because everything is clean now, and we have shiny new milk and ketchup. And a few other things. Anyway!

But life goes on, and the sales at Kohls don’t pause for silly things like hurricanes. There’s bonus buys happening starting today, plus you can stack coupons and make it all even better. Here we go:

If you have a Kohls charge (and why wouldn’t you?), use coupon code SUNSET30 for an additional 30% off your order, plus code MVC4SEPT gives you free shipping on any size order.

If you don’t have a Kohls charge (are you new here?), you can use code HUGEDEAL for 15% off your order, plus you’ll get automatic free shipping at $75+.

Anyone can also stack code SEPTFORHIM for an extra $10 off your $50+ Men’s Big/Tall purchase, and/or code STYLE10 for an extra $10 off $50+ Womens/Juniors clothing, accessories, shoes, and beauty.

*deep breath* Bonus tip for Discover Card holders: If you go to your Discover Deals online and search for Kohls, they often have a “$10 off $30+” coupon available, which you can redeem by scanning into your Kohls app or just copying the digits. This deal always works like Kohls Cash, which means it’s $10 free, basically. The minimum purchase is not enforced and it shows up as Kohls Cash to use on any purchase. I no longer shop Kohls without checking for this bonus, first (yes, there’s one available right now).

Labor Day savings have arrived at Rack

When you love high-end labels but hate high-end prices, you shop at Nordstrom Rack. And when you want to save even more, you shop at Nordstrom Rack when they’ve got all their clearance marked down with an additional 25% off.

Shipping is free if you spend $100+, otherwise it’s a flat $7.95 ($5.95 if ordering only jewelry/beauty items).

Pro tip: This is a great place to find deals on unusual bra sizes (actually how I started shopping there), but there’s tons of other bargains, too.
