Stock up on cool clothes for the teens

I always forget that Tilly’s exists, and I don’t know why, because they have a ton of the brands my teens love, and great sales.

Right now all sale items are discounting an extra 50%, automatically, when you add items to your cart. Spend $30+ (not hard; this is almost exclusively where I get the kids “cool” sneakers, now) and you can use coupon code SAVINGS30 for free shipping.

Then just wait for your purchases to arrive and your five seconds of being an appreciated mom. Or maybe that’s just how it works at my house.

Kohls free shipping is back

Know how there used to be free-shipping-on-any-size-order codes for Kohls cardholders all the time, and then there just… wasn’t? I used to shop them all the time and then I kind of stopped. Getting up to the $75 minimum just wasn’t as gratifying as a great deal on a couple of pairs of socks at a time, I guess.

Well, hip hip hooray, it’s back! Of course they’ve got Door Busters and other sales going, and you get $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, and everyone gets free shipping on $75+, and everyone can take advantage of the discount coupons on their main page (20% off $100+, or 15% off under $100). But if you have a Kohls charge card, you can also get free shipping on any size order with coupon code SHIPPINGMVC, plus an additional 30% off with coupon code NEWYEAR30.

I’m off to find the smallest possible deal so that I feel really pumped about that free shipping. I’m not even ashamed.

Stock up for the kids (especially on jeans)

It seems like forever since I’ve posted about deals at Children’s Place, but that’s probably only because I’ve been shopping in the grown-ups section for my teens and weeping bitterly. (I like how I don’t let my life get in the way of my work….) Anyhoo—surprise!—they’re having a big sale right now.

Every order ships for free, automatically, and items are already marked as much as 75% off. All denim is 60% off, plus you can use coupon code 76ED372 for another 20% off, which makes most jeans around $6.24. Crazy cheap!

You go shop. I’ll just be over here muttering about how expensive teenagers are.

Gamble on the Final Sale

Love Piperlime, hate their regular prices? Hop on over there today—Final Sale items (already marked way down) are an additional 60% off with coupon code BESTSALE. The bad news is that you can’t do returns, but at these prices, it may be worth the gamble.

Shipping is free. Throw anything into your basket from Gap, Old Navy, or Banana Republic along with any Piperlime item and those items will ship for free, too.

The Queen of stand mixers

It’s been a while since I last waxed poetic about my deep and abiding love of the KitchenAid stand mixer, but rest assured that our love affair continues. I used to own my mother’s KitchenAid, which I’m pretty sure was once her mother’s KitchenAid, and I loved it and crooned sweet nothings to it until it died one day. Fair enough; it was probably older than I am. Then I got a shiny, new KitchenAid and I use it all the time and I love it more than is reasonable. There is no greater workhorse in my kitchen than that stand mixer.

Of course, greatness comes at a price. A rather steep price, to be specific. So when I see a great deal on a KitchenAid mixer I’m always pretty jazzed about it. Been hoping for a shiny red mixer? Today’s your day—the Bonus Deal of the Day at Bon-Ton is the 4.5 quart KitchenAid Pro mixer for $189.97. Ship it for free with coupon code FREESHIP75, too. For comparison: Amazon has this model for $300ish, and I can tell you that the lowest they’ve ever had it at before is around $200 (rarely!), so $190 is indeed the lowest I’ve seen.

My mixer isn’t red, but I’m thinking that next Christmas I should definitely put this on my list so as to further glam up my favorite appliance….

It’s a beautiful day in the Kindlehood

Have a Kindle, or use the Kindle app on another device? Today’s a great day to stock up on educational e-books for less—the Amazon Gold Box is filled with nearly 500 discounted Kindle books “for students.” I’m putting “for students” in quotation marks because, sure, some of these books are actual classroom texts, but they also have a slew of biographies and other books nerds such as myself would happily read for fun.

And will I be spending $1.99 to send Stuff You Should Know About Stuff (How To Properly Behave In Certain Situations) to my son’s reader? Why yes. Yes, I will.

If you love Victoria’s Secret…

… today’s the day to get in there and stock up on your favorite panties. Through Wednesday, shop Victoria’s Secret and get 5 pairs of your favorite clearance undies for $15 when you apply coupon code 5FOR15.

It also looks like today you can get free shipping if you include an eligible (read: non-clearance) bra in your order, too, and use coupon code LOVEBRAS.

Make a New Year’s Resolution to throw away your old, ratty underthings, ladies. You’re worth nice lingerie.

I’m not dead! And here’s some good clearance

Sorry for that absence, there. One of those delightful stomach viruses came to visit our home, so you understand that I had to lay around wishing for my own death for a few days, then tend to my offspring, then burn the house down. You know how it goes.

Anyway! Things are much better now. So much better, in fact, that I’m busy shopping over at Nordstrom Rack, where the plentiful clearance has, in some cases, gone to as much as 90% off. This is my favorite place to shop for lingerie without having to sell my kids to pay for it, by the way.

Anyway, tons of deals to be had. Free shipping on $100+, or a flat $7.95, otherwise. (You know I hate paying for shipping, but the savings here are so good I let it slide.) Happy shopping, and no worries—I wiped this post down with Lysol wipes.

My kid’s favorite mall store does extra clearance

I’m not quite sure how to feel about Aeropostale, because on the one hand, it’s my daughter’s favorite, and not nearly as hoochie as some other options, but on the other, they do seem to offer quite a few questionable items. (Skin tight? Cropped? How about both?) I do give them points for the “Santa, stop judging me” shirt, though.

Anyway, it’s clearance time over there—take another 40% off already-reduced clearance with coupon code EXTRA40. Shipping starts at $7, which stinks, but if you’re buying enough, it may be worth it.

My new favorite shirt

Many of my favorite t-shirts come from Shirt.Woot, simply because I’m a sucker for a funny shirt. I just received the #1 ranked shirt in the Top 20, which is their “Go Sports!” design, and I cannot wait to wear it at our Super Bowl party. (Nothing irritates die-hard sports fans more than someone wearing a short that says “Go sports! Move the thing to the other thing!”)

Anyway, if you love their shirts, too, this is a perfect week to stock up—you can use coupon code LAZY20 to take 20% off your $20+ order, which means you can get yourself a Go Sports shirt and at least one more (maybe more than that; I don’t judge) at a discounted price.

This means I may need to go back and get the Couch Potato League shirt. And I’m pretty sure my daughter needs that Procrastination University shirt….
