Heads up, Coraline fans

‘Tis the season to keep an eye out for stocking stuffers, and you could do a lot worse than this Coraline 2-disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for an all-time-low price of $6.92 at Amazon. (Alternatively, grab the DVD for just $4.99.)

It’s a favorite movie at a no-brainer price, and it would probably take up a good chunk of stocking real estate. I’m always thinking about that stuff. (Also: Socks are good in stockings. They take up a lot of room and make children roll their eyes. Double score!)

It’s a Wednesday Wootacular

As much as I love the name Woot-Off, I think Wootacular has a nice ring to it, too. (You can use it, guys! Free of charge! Just a little gift from me to you because I love you.)

Hey, they’re Wooting Off all day long today at Woot, Home.Woot, Electronics.Woot, Computers.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, Accessories.Woot, Kids.Woot, and—everybody’s favorite only-sometimes-liquor stop—Wine.Woot! That means a whole day of rotating deals, lasting anywhere from a few seconds apiece to about half an hour. Plus you’ll pay $5 shipping just once and it’ll cover you for the whole day, no matter how many orders you place.

I especially appreciate this on a day when there just doesn’t seem to be enough coffee in the universe. Woot-Offs are very Zen, in a way. I’m going to go have another cuppa and see what I can find.

Wrist tech, on sale

I don’t know; I prescribe to the antiquated notion that a wristwatch should simply alert you to the current time, but I realize this is an outdated approach. That said, I have next to no idea what the various smartwatch options do and don’t do and how they compare, so perhaps I should just be quiet. (When has that ever stopped me before, though?)

If you’re the sort who cares about this stuff, you may be interested to know that among the Best Buy Deals of the Day, today, there’s a great deal on the Microsoft Band Smartwatch (scroll down the page a bit to find it). Specifically, today it’s just $100 with free shipping, when it’s still running around $150 at Amazon.

Do with this information what you will.

Sew fancy

If you’ve been waiting for a great deal on a do-it-all sewing machine, today’s your day—the featured Gold Box Deal at Amazon is the Singer 7256 Fashion Mate 70-Stitch Computerized Free-Arm Sewing Machine for just $99.99!

Now, obviously, as with so many other Amazon deals, you can’t believe the supposed $260 retail price—that’s ridiculous—but it is usually priced around $150 as a “good deal,” which means it’s a third off from that. Plus, this machine averages 4.5 stars with over 1,700 reviews. It’s a great little machine, and this price makes it a bargain.

Have you tried it yet?

If you haven’t tried Schoola yet, what are you waiting for? Sign up through my link and you’ll get $15 credit, plus every order ships for free right now with coupon code SHIPIT.

We’ve ordered from them a ton and had only one problem (and they refunded me immediately when I contacted them). If you’ve not checked ’em out yet, now’s your chance. Great gently-used clothes for you and the kids, at great prices. I know I keep posting about them, but only because I’m such a fan, myself!

The Want Not Review: Jones Natural Chews

This post is sponsored by Jones Natural Chews (warning: site has sound), but as always, all opinions are my own.

Do you have a spoiled pup or two (or more; I don’t judge)? I’m sure I’ve mentioned a time or fifty that Casa Mir is home to as many rescued dogs as my husband will tolerate (currently: two), and furthermore that my special snowflakes of tiny canine ridiculousness both have food allergies. They’re delicate flowers, my doggies. Feed Licorice the wrong thing and she will throw up for days. Feed Duncan the wrong thing and he’ll develop an ear infection seemingly overnight. They’re high-maintenance, but I can’t help it. I love them. I mean, seriously:


“We’re adorable.”

Could you resist those faces? When they’re sitting so pretty, like that, waiting for me to open the treat bag?? (more…)

It’s beginning to look a lot like… stocking stuffers

Listen, I have teens, so there’s plenty of stuff they love over at Tilly’s, anyway, though I do have to wade through the questionable miniskirts and such to find the items I’m willing to buy. But on a day like today, when Sale items are an extra 50% off automatically in-cart, and you can use coupon code FS2015 for free shipping on any order, I’m on the hunt for stocking stuffers.

Don’t have teens yet? There’s plenty of hats and jewelry and headbands and other items even the younger kids will love, though of course you’ll need to pick through a bit to find ’em.

Merry (not quite yet) Christmas!

Bluetooth earbuds? Yep.

I guess I’m a Luddite, but it hadn’t even occurred to me that bluetooth earbuds were even a thing. Maybe I assumed you put up with an earbud cord or got a single-ear doohickey for talking on the phone or got a fancy over-the-ears headset if you were really into all of that. But no! Bluetooth earbuds are totally a thing.

And… if you want to try ’em out without spending a bundle, check out these Thinkcase wireless sport earbuds at Amazon, currently marked down to $19.99 (only the green ones are marked down), and then an additional $10 off with coupon code NDJZ7V5L at checkout. They’re at an average of 4.5 stars with over 130 reviews, and for $10, the risk is minimal.

Now I just have to decide if I get these for my kid or just order them and throw them in the trash to save him the trouble of losing them later….

This is probably a price mistake…

… but right now, Amazon has this 20 ounce Curel Ultra Healing Lotion available for just $2.99 as an Add-On or even less if you buy via Subscribe & Save and get up to 15% off for the month.

Some months I like to find cheap things like this to help me get to that magical 5-item S&S minimum, but I also really like this particular lotion and it’s usually at least $6 (and more like $8, most of the time). Definitely worth grabbing if you’re thinking about the long, dry winter to come, especially at this price.

Eddie Bauer’s doing it again

Once more, with feeling: It’s another great sale at Eddie Bauer, plus everyone gets free shipping, plus you can use coupon code RAPID for an extra 25% off nearly everything.

Those great toiletry bags that were on special about a month ago seem to be gone, but there’s a few other travel bag type deals, plus a ton of clothing clearance. Get it while the getting’s good!
