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.)

And a little Groupon bonus, too

I don’t know if this is working for everyone, so please don’t be mad at me if it’s not, but: I wandered over to Groupon a few minutes ago and got a banner for $10 off my $25+ purchase, today only.

The coupon combines with any existing Groupon Bucks you have, too, so you can really score a bargain if you do it right. Or if you’re a crazy dog lady like me, you can snag these wee adorable pet stairs for your blind, arthritic dog for around $20, or completely free if you have credit (I did). I mean, it’s not that it’s not terribly entertaining to scoop up the dog and say, “Doggievator going UP!” every time he wants to get on the bed, but I think teaching him to climb his new stairs will be kind of fun, too.

It’s a party over at Woot

Perhaps not as exciting as a Woot-Off, true, but at least it won’t derail your whole day—today at Woot and its associated sites, you can use code 10OFFPARTY to take $10 off your $25+ purchase.

That’ll save you the $5 shipping and an additional $5 beyond that. I’d call that a party, for sure. The only question left (for me, anyway) is whether I buy something practical or blow it all on silly t-shirts….

What’s with all the coupons?

Another 6pm.com coupon? Is the world ending? Maybe so, but at least we’ll go out with cute shoes and stuff.

Today you can use code 6PMCN327141517 for an additional 15% off at 6pm, which means yet another excuse to buy something cute you may or may not need. I’m not enabling you, or anything… I’m just… uhhh… helping. Because I care.

Hey, hey, hey! Guess what day it is!

Living with teenagers means that Wednesdays are never boring. (Guess how many times I’ve heard this. No, really. Don’t bother, actually; I’m sure the number is too high to count.)

In addition to their enthusiasm for reenacting cheesy commercials, Wednesdays are exciting ’round here because they also mean it’s the best day to grab the savings over at Kohls.

Right now you get $10 in Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, plus everyone gets free shipping on orders of $75+. Use your Kohls charge card and you can save an additional 30% with coupon code SHOP30, plus get free shipping on any size order with code WESHIPFREE. No Kohls card? Coupon code CELEBRATE will take 15% off your purchase even without one.

There’s a whole section of Door Buster Deals available today only, but the coupons are all good through April 2nd. Happy deal-hunting!
