May the dapper force be with you

I can’t stop laughing—check out this little boys’ shirt and Star Wars tie combo over at Amazon. Depending on the color/size you pick, they’re as low as $4.34 each.

They’re selling out fast, but, um, how deliciously nerdtastic would that be for Easter?

Another big Clarks sale

Love Clarks shoes? (I do. We all know I have a thing for shoes, and my Clarks continuously last longer and are more comfortable than many of the other brands I own.) Right now when you shop them online, there’s a bevy of clearance items where you can take an additional 20% off with coupon code WINTER. You’re looking at upwards of 70% off on some styles, which is pretty sweet.

Shipping is free. Comfortable, high-quality shoes are priceless.

The best gummy bears, period

If you love gummy bears like my kids love gummy bears, then you know that Haribo is the gold standard. I don’t know why. I don’t know how. I prefer not to think about it too hard (hello, hippie make-my-own-everything-from-scratch, HFCS-is-the-devil mom here who buys candy; I’m a study in contradictions, apparently).

Jump on this one if you love ’em: this 24-pack of 2-ounce Haribo Gold Bears at Amazon is just $7.58 as an Add-On, or as low as $6.44 if you purchase via Subscribe & Save and have made it to 15% off for the month. That’s… ridiculously cheap, really.

Am I stocking up on small packets of my high school senior’s favorite candy now so that I’m ready to go any time I feel the need to send a care package next year? Yeah. I am. Stop looking at me like that.

Woot has just what I needed today

Awwwww yeah, it’s another Woot-Off! (It seems like it’s been a while, but maybe I just missed the last one.) Anyway, pay $5 shipping once and it’ll cover everything you want to buy today and tomorrow. That’s perfect, because the deals are rotating through fast and furious at Woot, Home.Woot, Electronics.Woot, Computers.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, Kids.Woot, Accessories.Woot, and—everyone’s favorite—Wine.Woot.

I will try to contain my dismay at the exclusion of Shirt.Woot, because everything else is included.

Anyway! You didn’t have anything planned, right? Watch the deals, nab some goodies. You’re welcome.

[Edited to add: Did you miss the High Sierra Fat Boy backpack deals on Amazon the other day? They’ve got a few options on Sellout.Woot for just $12.99!!]

It’s time for a Gap-a-palooza

Been waiting for a good sale to do some shopping at the Gap family of stores? Today would be a good day to go for it—there’s one-day-discounts you won’t want to miss.

At Gap, you can take 40% off nearly everything with coupon code BLUEMON

At Old Navy, tons of items are already half off, plus you can use coupon code SCORE for another 35% off most items.

There’s a bunch of up-to-40%-off markdowns at Banana Republic, too, but no coupon code. Sale items, however, are an automatic additional 50% off at checkout, which is pretty sweet (especially if you had your eye on a coat).

Don’t forget that magical shared shopping cart across the stores—get over $50 in any combination between them all and your order will ship for free. That means you can stock up on basics for the kids and justify a little something for you because hey, you needed that free shipping…. (Okay, maybe that’s just me.)

All you need at Oneida

Hello! Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated. It’s been a very busy few days and now—I don’t know if you know this—a blizzard is about to hit and end the world. Or at least shut down the world for a few days. (Note: I live where we are looking at just an inch or two of snow, but that’s enough, ’round here.) So I had to go buy French toast supplies, you understand.

Anyway! That is not why I’m here. I’m here to tell you that Oneida is doing a flash sale—everything on the site is an additional 30% off with coupon code FL30. And shipping is a flat $2.99. This includes all sorts of food storage items (my weakness) and baking items and all kinds of stuff. Definitely worth a look if you feel like you can never have too much toys in your kitchen.

Pick a pack of pods

Wasn’t I just recently going on about how much I like laundry pods? I think I was. I buy the no scents/dyes pods for my family because they’re delicate flowers, but I confess to preferring a little fresh scent along with my own clothes, so I was thrilled to see that right now Amazon has this 81-count Spring Meadow Tide Pods available for $21.30—an average price for it—but it’s also Subscribe & Save eligible and there’s a clippable $5 coupon! You can end up getting 81 pods for just $13.10 (after coupon and 15% discount if you have 5+ S&S orders), which is a killer price.

The coupon is only good on the Spring Meadow scent, but if you’re not fussy, it’s a great savings.

Valentine’s Day is coming

Tired of giving V-Day gifts that die (flowers), get eaten (chocolate), or just take up space (most everything else)? I’ve got a great idea for you, particularly if you enjoy games—right now Amazon has Alderac Entertainment Group’s Love Letter game regular set for just $7.99 or you can snag the slightly better-looking boxed edition for $8.96. This is a ridiculously high-rated quick-playing game of risk, deduction, and luck, and it would be a lovely Valentine’s Day gift for that special nerd in your life.

Better still: You can play an entire game in just 15 minutes. If you’re buying it for your kid, that gets you off the hook pretty quickly. If you’re buying it for a love interest, well, that leaves you plenty of time for… other things.

Big Pampers savings for Prime members

(I don’t know why today’s deals seem to be… um… elimination-themed. It’s not on purpose, I swear.)

If you’re a Pampers user, and especially if you have Mom Prime, check it out: Right now Amazon is offering an extra 30% off cases of Pampers, and that stacks with your additional 20% off if you’re buying via Subscribe & Save as a Mom Prime member. That’s half off, which is crazy. (And yes, I know that when you stack percentages you normally don’t just add them, but the way Amazon stacks promos like this, it takes both percentages off the list price, so it really is half off.)

My Pampers days are long gone, but I figured a few of you might be able to make use of this. (And hey, if you won the Powerball? Buy some and donate to a shelter or food bank or something.)

Calling all cat people

I am not a cat person. I am extremely allergic to cats. And I know nothing about kitty litter, so forgive me if this is not as good of a deal as it seems to be. (Also: Hey Amazon, why are you offering me kitty litter in my “you might also like” section??)

Right now they have this 27-pound pail of 24/7 Performance Tidy Cats Clumping Litter available for just $9.99 shipped (if you have Prime). I’m seeing an average price on this of around $26, so that seems like a pretty good deal.

Of course, as a dog person, I do feel the need to point out that a better deal is an animal that doesn’t poop in a box inside, but whatever. Details!
