Make it feel less like Monday

You know I love a good sale over at 6pm.com, and today’s batch of spotlight deals are each better than the next. Of particular note: Check out the $29.99 and under boutique, which is chock-full of deals on all of the usual suspects (cute sandals and flats for spring!), but also has the occasional smokin’ deal on boots or other should-be-much-more-expensive items.

If new shoes don’t perk you up on a rainy Monday, I can’t help you.

If you love Bliss…

… then today would be the day to pamper yourself. Shop all of Bliss‘ in-house branded products (as well Remede and Elemis) and use coupon code 20FORYOU to save 20%.

Orders of $50+ ship for free, too, otherwise it’s $7.95 per order. (Not that it would be hard to spend $50.)

I don’t often spring for Bliss, but I do love a few of their products. Their Super Slough Scrub is a miracle in a bottle, for example. (Or maybe I am just old and scaly. That’s also possible.) (Sorry for that mental image. I shall go buy some Slough Scrub.)

I’m a sucker for Indy

I grew up on the Indiana Jones movies, so you’ll have to excuse me for having a soft spot in my heart for them, even though I hand nightmares about that one villain from the first movie getting melted for several years. (What? It was scary!)

Today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal is the complete movie set on Blu-ray (that’s all four movies, plus 7 hours of special features!) for just $29.99. It’s never been priced lower, and if Harrison Ford with a bullwhip doesn’t make you go just a little weak in the knees, I don’t even know what to tell you.

Don’t ask why, just control your drooling

I was looking at a sale at Godiva yesterday (and salivating a little…), but sort of feeling like shipping killed it. Now, today, I see that this signature gift basket is the same sale price at Amazon—$24.99, down from $60—but is free shipping eligible.

Why? I have no idea. All I know is that $25 for nearly a pound and a half of gourmet chocolate in pretty wrapping is a steal. Maybe you need a gift. Maybe you’re just hungry. I don’t judge.

Get your Easter goodies!

You know how there’s always a few little things you want from Oriental Trading but then you can’t get free shipping unless you spend $49, and in order to spend $49 there you’d have to buy one of everything they sell? That’s such a bummer.

Well, today and tomorrow would be perfect days to pick up a few little somethings in preparation for Easter baskets; through 11:59 p.m. Central time on April 3rd, 2014, you can apply coupon code WCE4355 for free shipping on any size order. They’ve even got an Easter sale going on, so you can pick up your carrot-shaped chocolates or whatever else you need to make the kids happy.

I see a giant chocolate bunny balloon that I might need. (Why? I don’t know. The heart wants what the heart wants.)

The best indoor hoops are back!

This is always a very popular deal when the price drops to just $15, like now—this SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop is pretty much the Cadillac of mini indoor basketball, with the reviews to prove it. Why spend the same amount of money on a Nerf ball and flimsy plastic over-the-door hoop when you could have a miniature of the real thing, right down to the breakaway steel rim?

Now that spring is arriving you could actually play basketball outside again, but this would be a great purchase to tuck away for next winter.

No foolin’, these prices are crazy

You didn’t think 6pm.com was going to let an opportunity for a sale pass them by, did you? They’ve got a special selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories marked at $41.14 (get it? 4/1/14?) today, and while that’s not as cheap as some of their sales, it’s all high-end stuff at a huge markdown.

I’m seeing lots of designer clothing, as well as some killer deals on boots and sunglasses. (My tip: when they do a single-price sale like this, I like to sort by percentage off so that I can see the most deeply discounted items first.)

These prices are no joke, but they’ll be gone after today, so get on over there if you’re interested.

An offer you can’t refuse

If you grew up watching the Godfather movies—or, alternatively, feeling very grown-up once you were finally old enough to watch them—here’s a deal even better than when it was a Gold Box deal a while back: Amazon has The Godfather Collection (Coppola Restoration) Blu-ray set available right now for $19.99 (Prime or SSS eligible). That’s all the movies, commentary, extras, etc. Basically it exceeds your daily lifetime dosage of Brando, is what I’m saying.

If you’ve never seen these movies (sacrilege!) you should probably buy them. And if you haven’t seen them in a while, well, you still need ‘em—the snow will be back next year and surely there will be a weekend when you’re trapped inside and need a little old-school mob violence to get you through.

Start the day with some gold (sort of)

Happy April 1st! I hope there wasn’t any saran wrap on your toilet bowl. That’s probably my least-favorite April Fool’s joke.

This one isn’t a joke: If you’ve been eyeing something over at Urban Outfitters (say, the cool bedding we discovered the last time they had a sale…?), today only, they’ll automatically take $15 off your $75+ order, or $50 off your $150 order. No fooling!

Orders of $50+ ship free, so if you spend enough to use the coupon, you’ll get free shipping, as well. Now isn’t that nicer than scaring someone?

Load ‘em up, move ‘em out!

What’s better than some giant construction vehicles to play with when you’re a little kid? Pretty much nothing, that’s what. Add a sandbox or some good old-fashioned dirt and you’ve got yourself a party.

Right now Amazon has a couple of very cool Bruder vehicles available at their lowest prices ever; this CAT track-type tractor for $13.55 is a classic, and if you like all the bells and whistles, this MAN crane truck for $23.62 is amazing.

Bruder toys will last for generations and have all of the details that make for endless hours of imaginative play. Plus I’m pretty sure that crane toy could probably lift one of my dogs. (I know, that’s not a good reason to buy it. But now I’m tempted.)
