Shoe-bee-doo-shoe

Love the comfort and durability of Clarks shoes? I do, and while I realize this causes my kids to tell me I am old, I do not care. I especially do not care because today they’re having a flash sale, and that means an additional 40% off sale styles with coupon code FLASH40. Shipping is free.

Some cute new sandals for me, some durable work shoes for the husband. Also, they have some pretty adorable socks, too. And even some winter boots on sale. (And purses!! I didn’t know they did purses.) It’s a sale worth checking out for sure.

Friends & Family and even better savings

If you hop on over to Eddie Bauer right now, you’ll see they’re doing their Friends & Family promotion—coupon code SHARE takes an additional 40% off almost everything, plus you’ll get free shipping on your $49+ order. 40% off is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you use it on Clearance items, so I’m definitely not knocking that sale at all. There’s great bargains to be had.

But! If you’re ready for winter to hurry up and get here, allow me to make it even better for you: Women’s boots and outerwear already on clearance can be reduced by an additional 60% when you use coupon code EXTRA60, instead. 60% off clearance on some of the highest-rated jackets/gear around? That’s enough to make even me wish for winter.

Top-shelf kicks for clearance rack prices

Helllooooooooo! I have been away. (And busy with these people in my house who like to call me “Mom” as if that means I owe them something. Sheesh!) But today I have spotted a crazy deal those of you whose offspring are still miniature are likely to appreciate.

Today (Wednesday, August 15th) only, check it out: Stride Rite is having a Flash Sale on over a hundred different styles. If it’s in the sale, it’s $19.99—no fooling! And sure, there’s plenty of sandals because that’s end-of-season stuff, but also sneakers, dress shoes, and even boots. When else can you get ergonomic shoes for kids that started at $52 for just under $20?

Shipping is free on $30+, so buy a couple of pairs and you’re all set. I’ll just be over here all bitter that my kids have bigger feet than I do….

Heads up for your dapper dudes

As a parent, I know the day each of my kids crossed over from kids’ to adult sizes was a very solemn one. Sure, sure—passage of time, sunrise/sunset, etc. Forget all that. The issue for me was that suddenly everything cost at least twice as much. Heartbreak!

Today (Monday, July 30th) Gap is making it up to me and other moms of teenage boys (and even full-adult males, I guess) with a huge sales event. While coupon code EVERYTHING will take an additional 20% off just about, well, everything, as well as giving you free shipping on any size order, many men’s shirts and pants will also drop by 50% when you apply secret coupon code EXTRA!

Note that the codes can both be used, but the discount will not stack. That is, apply EXTRA first for 50% off, then EVERYTHING to also get free shipping (you won’t save another 20%, but let’s get greedy).

Stock up for your young men, or for yourself, or whomever. With these prices, it hardly matters.

Comfy Aerie undies, cheapest ever!

Oh, I know, we all get a little uncomfortable talking about underthings, but when has that ever stopped me before? In fact, I usually get all jazzed when Aerie does their 10 panties for $30 promo, but today it’s even better! Right now they’ve got select panties at 10 for $25 (you do have to buy 10 to get the promo price, but what a good way to make sure you throw out the raggedy ones, right?).

I like to think of Aerie panties as high-end mall-store quality at “come in a plastic multibag at the Big Box Store” price.

Shipping is free if you have Shoprunner or spend $50+ (pro tip: there’s lots of other stuff on sale, too), otherwise it’s $7.

Heads up, ladies who need officewear

I have a friend who recently started a new job, one which requires her to dress a lot more “officeworkerish” than her old job. I have been delighted to go shopping with her to show her that “office” is not synonomous with “black.” (Hey, I love black. Just not all black. It’s an office, not a funeral.) I know, it can be hard for some of us to shed our jeans and t-shirts and/or branch out in our preferred color palettes, but it can be done.

One brand I love for this stuff is Ann Taylor, though I’ll admit to not being too wild about their prices. (Yes, yes: LOFT has better prices to begin with, and tons of sales.) Every now and then, though, the regular Ann Taylor store has a huge sale. If you need to dress for work or just get out of the jeans-and-tees rut, hop on over there today—in addition to some very deep markdowns, coupon code MAKEWAVES takes another 50% off and gets you free shipping on any size order.

Whether you want to pick up a cardigan or need a whole new wardrobe, these prices will make it a lot easier to manage.

Go be a Champion (of savings)

Need some new workout gear, or just like comfy clothing? Hop on over to the Champion online clearance for some already great price reductions, and then save even more—use coupon code EXTRA40 for an additional 40% off and code ESHIPCH for free shipping on any size order.

I’m seeing things like ridiculously low prices on sports bras and other specialty wear, plus this is my favorite way to stock up on socks for the whole family. (Because everyone is always out of socks. Where do they go? I have no idea.)

Sizes and styles are limited, of course, but with discounts like these, that’s no surprise.

It’s a flash sale on everyone’s favorite summer shoes

Remember when we all just made fun of Crocs for adults but kept buying them for our kids and maybe a pair for ourselves “just for gardening” and then they started making all kinds of other styles and now they still make the ubiquitous squishy clogs but also things like real leather dress shoes? They’ve come a long way, baby.

Well, today (Thursday, June 7th) is the day to shop. They’ve put over 100 styles in a 24-hour Flash Sale, which means you can mix and match your favorites for the whole family and get 50% off everything. Free shipping on your $29.99 order, otherwise shipping is a flat $4.99.

I don’t want to tell you what to buy, but if you have a beloved chef/cook in your life and you don’t pick up a pair of these Muppets Swedish Chef clogs, just know that I will be pretty disappointed.

Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, and also Kohls

It’s time for a new batch of Kohls coupons! Just in time for… well, okay, they have coupons all the time, so it’s “just in time” for pretty much whatever you need. Clothing! Outdoor furniture! Kitchen stuff! Whatever!

Right now they have specials and Door Busters galore, plus everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend. Kohls charge card holder can take an additional 30% off with coupon code MOM30, plus get free shipping on any size order with code FREE4MAY. Everyone can take an additional $10 off $50+ on qualifying Home items with code MOMSDAY10 (stacks with other percent-off coupons!), or use code SAVEMORE20 for an extra 20% off $100+ or 15% off, otherwise.

I’m sure I’ve shared this before, but one of my favorite things to pick up during these sales—either because we need more or because I need some cheap items to get me to the next Kohls Cash threshold—are these Big One pillows. At $4 apiece (that’s before coupons) they’re surprisingly good quality, and cheap enough that when they finally do flatten out, you don’t have to feel bad about replacing them.

Those of you starting to gear up your soon-to-graduate kids for the college adventure, toss those in your cart and then look around. There’s tons of bedding and towel deals, plus bed bug encasements (trust me, even if there aren’t bugs, you’ll feel better knowing your kid’s who-knows-what-came-before dorm mattress is hermetically sealed), foam padding, etc. You could knock out a big chunk of your shopping months ahead of schedule, cheap.

My kind of March Madness

Basketball, schmasketball—I’m more interested in a great sale. (Sorry, not sorry.) And today, Eddie Bauer is delivering, albeit a bit sneakily. Right now the only mention of a coupon on the site itself is a 40% off coupon in the clearance section, but we can do better: everything on the site (including clearance items!) is an additional 50% off when you apply coupon code MADNESS. [Edited to add: Okay, almost everything. Non-Eddie branded items are ineligible for the coupon.]

Shipping is free on $99+, or on $25+ if you have ShopRunner. (Do note that they look a the total after the coupon is applied.)

I have several pieces of Eddie clothing I really love, but the main draw for me is that they have a great assortment of Tall items for guys, if you’re in the market for those. With 50% off I think it’s probably time for some new shirts for my favorite guy.
