It’s the big $4.99-and-under clearance

Haven’t been to Children’s Place in a while? They’re having a giant clearance, with the most expensive items at $4.99 (I typed “$499” at first by accident, and wow, that would be a lot for a t-shirt for your toddler…), and plenty of offerings in the $1.99-$2.99 range.

Shipping is free on every order. Those jersey knit shorts my son lived in for most of his childhood are just $2.99, and yes, I’m still bitter that their largest size is 14.

Another great day to Schoola

I have a hard time believing any of you haven’t yet tried out Schoola, but I suppose it’s possible. If you’re new, signing up gets you a $20 credit to start shopping, which is even more motivation beyond the part where your purchases help schools and they offer an abundance of gently-used clothing options at deeply discounted prices.

But if all of that isn’t enough, let me make it irresistible: Right now you can shop used offerings to your heart’s content (this offer excludes new-with-tags items) and then apply coupon code CANYOUSAVE for 60% off and free shipping on your order. If you were saving any more, it’d be free, just about.

Shop a little, shop a lot. It’s great for replenishing the kids’ wardrobes, but they have plenty of adult offerings, too. You can outfit the entire family for pennies on the dollar, which is my favorite kind of shopping.

This offer is valid through July 4th, but of course inventory varies. May the odds be ever in your favor!

Croc it up

Listen; I still maintain that Crocs aren’t appropriate footwear for grownups—save for activities like gardening and camping, you understand—no matter how many “modern” iterations they come out with. This is my own personal bias, I understand, but there it is. On the other hand, I think they are the perfect shoes for kids for all sorts of things, so my feelings are definitely mixed.

All of that aside, right now they’re taking an additional 30% off sale styles when you add them to your cart, plus they’re giving automatic free shipping when you spend $25+. And if I still had little feet in this house, would I be outfitting them in these fabulous Star Wars droids clogs? Yes. Yes, I would.

And if you, as an adult, still wear Crocs? Well, you do you. Who am I to stand in your way?

Solve the “I’m bored” blues

Whether you’re road-tripping, languishing in an airport, or just hanging around the house while (horrors!) electronics are off-limits, everyone sometimes needs a pocketful of brain-teasing distraction. Enter Kanoodle, the ages-7+ game of spacial relations. It looks simple, but is it? (Answer: Nope. Not for me, but then again, I’ve been known to screw up trying to draw a straight line.) Play a hundred different ways, and even the typical price of $10 is a good buy.

Right now at Amazon, though, they’ve got it marked down to $8.15—pretty good—but even better, check out the “Other Sellers on Amazon” column to the right to see it for $7.50 and free shipping whether you have Prime or not. 100 games for $7.50? Nice!

And here some more sandals (and other kid stuff)

If you didn’t find what you needed at the Target sale and your kids still need stuff, head on over to Carter’s for their 4th of July sale. Today they’re offering free shipping on every order, and amongst their Doorbuster offerings today you’ll find $2 flip flops! Plus they’re taking another 30% off their Clearance, too.

Insert obligatory kvetching here about how I miss my children being small enough to wear Carter’s. I mean. Look at the cuteness. Can someone bring a baby over here for me to sniff, please??

Got sandals?

Well, not to worry—if you don’t, Target is doing a “Deal Days of Summer” promo right now with great sales every day until the 4th of July. Today’s deal is sandals—already on sale, in most cases, and an additional 30% off with coupon code SUMMER. (Thanks for the tip, Cool Mom Picks!)

Shipping is free at $25+, plus they offer free returns. Pick up sandals for the whole family! Plus whatever else you needed, anyway.

The cutest (and cheapest) Clarisonics ever

I own one of the original Clarisonics and it’s sort of amazing. My skin is very finicky (I’m oily! I’m dry! I’m both old and wrinkly and I have acne!) and it has helped calm my face down considerably, even though I’ll admit that initially the idea of using a circulating brush on my face was a little terrifying.

Anyway. This isn’t about me, this is about you, or—more precisely—about your opportunity to get your very own unit in a super-cute print for 40% off. How, you ask? Just hop on over to the Clarisonic site and search on final40 to see the assortment of Mia 2 kits which are available for 40% off, today (with FINAL40 coupon code). Sure, you can go for a color or an ikat pattern, but holy heck that Keith Haring Pop Edition is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Shipping is free. Check out the reviews on the Mia 2 on Amazon (as well as the never-budging $149 price tag) to make yourself feel really swell about scoring a fancy one for just under $90.

Free shipping’s back (today only)

Hey, remember when shipping was always free at I do, but barely. It was a long time ago. Eagle-eyed reader Sherri pointed out to me that they’re doing free shipping today (Thursday, June 23rd) only, for some reason.

What a wonderful excuse to get a new pair of shoes, amirite? Or clothing or other stuff. I don’t judge. (If you’ve never shopped 6pm—and I don’t know how that would be possible, but just in case—this is Zappos’ outlet site. They pretty much have shoes and everything else, too.) They’ve got sales going as well as “hourly steals” today, plus their regular closeout pricing. And now, free shipping. Thanks, Sherri!

A peek into my actual life

Me: Should I buy this 6-pack of laundry baskets for $25?
Husband: Do we need 6 laundry baskets?
Me: Um. Well. We can use them to move the kids into their dorms, and then leave them each one and bring the extras home and use them for other stuff.
Husband: Is that a good price?
Me: Yeah, it’s the lowest price ever. They’re Sterilite, good handles.
Husband: Sure, we’ll figure out what to do with them.

(Notice that nowhere in that conversation did I remind my husband that we already own five other laundry baskets. These are different. These ones are square. Shhhhh.)

It’s a Wootiful day in the neighborhood

Are you ready for a Woot-Off? Because I am. I mean, sure, I’m always ready for a Woot-Off, but whatever.

They’re Wooting Off all day at Woot, Home.Woot, Electronics.Woot, Computers.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, Kids.Woot, Shirt.Woot, Accessories.Woot, and Wine.Woot (motto: piquant, with a soup├žon of things which have nothing whatsoever to do with wine, actually).

Spend your day checking out the rotating deals, and pay just one $5 shipping fee no matter how much you end up buying for the entire day. I’m not saying I’m going to spend the whole day buying cool t-shirts for my family… but… I’m not not saying that, either. Ahem.
