A tabletop gamer’s game deal

Love strategy games for the family? Been looking for something in the flavor of Mice & Mystics for your next gaming adventure, but at a great price?

Today Amazon has Stuffed Fables available for just $36.62 shipped. (For reference: Its MSRP is $70, and its historical average price is around $55.) This particular game has been out for about a year to critical acclaim, and although it’s hardly cheap, this is a great price and the lowest it’s ever gone.

Plus the little figurines included are amazing. Just sayin’.

You’re gonna want it

Love LOFT? You’ll love it even more, today, because coupon code WANT will take 60% off already-reduced sale styles, plus every order gets free shipping. Deeply-discounted items are selling out fast, but there’s quite a lot of goodies from which to choose. Don’t wait if you’re wanting to shop, though.

Regular-price items are also half off, but I’d definitely start with the sale items.

Bed and bath deals in an unlikely place

I love it when a store ends up having good deals on stuff you’d never think to buy there. I’m easily entertained, but there it is.

Like today—check out the slew of bed and bath deals at Home Depot, possibly the last place I’d think about buying sheets, normally. (“Oh, I need a new set of sheets and a belt sander. Time to head to Home Depot!”)

Not only do they have a ton of markdowns, there’s a bit of coupon weirdness happening there. Some of the items say you can apply coupon code BEDBATH15 for an additional 15% off, and some of them don’t; but so far in testing I’ve found most products in the sale are an additional 20% off with code BEDBATH20, either way. Neat, huh?

You can ship to your local store and pick up for free, or shipping is free on orders of $45+. I mean, I never thought I’d be buying Company Store towels at Home Depot, but when the deal strikes….

The Warehouse just got better

Don’t mind buying repackaged/refurbished/dented to save some money? Same! So I’m always down to check out the Amazon Warehouse Deals, regardless, but today their normally pretty great deals just got even more awesome. Check out the assortment of “extra 20% off” items and prepare to snag an amazing deal.

Fun fact: My vacuum cleaner—an industrial Kirby, weighing roughly 500 pounds, and purchased around 20 years ago—finally broke a few weeks ago. I mean, it had a good long life. And my husband swears it can probably be fixed. But… it’s been in the garage in pieces ever since. Did I go research top-rated vacuums when I found this deal and end up buying an open-box SharkNinja TruePet for over $100 off? I sure did. Why? Because I’m deal-savvy, and because I’m tired of trying to keep my house clean with the little stick vac we keep in the kitchen.

But you do you and get what you need. Chances are there’s a bargain you won’t be able to pass up.

Good news! We’re back just in time!

I have excellent news: After several weeks of (both metaphorically and literally) pulling my hair out, the emborkening of Want Not has been… uhhh… unborked. Three straight days of editing links by hand has led us to right now, where most everything is working again. (Not absolutely everything, but most things.) Hooray! Also, I am out of caffeine. Because I drank it all.

Anyway, now that things are functional again, I consider it a cosmic sign that today is the start of another round of coupons/deals at Kohls, because sure, they do this all the time, but still. (Let me have this moment, okay?)

Ready to save? Here you go:
Kohls charge card holders can use coupon code MITTENS30 for an extra 30% off, and code FREEMVCJAN for free shipping on any size order. Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, plus code SAVEBIG will take 20% off your $100+ order or 15% off, otherwise. Coupon code BABY10 will take $10 off eligible $30+ orders of baby/maternity items, and it stacks with percent off coupons.

As always, don’t forget to check out the clearance for your best deals. And if it’s holiday deals you’re after, don’t be alarmed by how little you see there—sometimes they forget to tag items as being on clearance. Here’s a handy link to Christmas clearance items for your browsing pleasure.

All about Invisalign, and some housekeeping

Hello! I took some time off for the holidays and when I came back, my whole site was borked (technical term). Originally we thought it would be a quick fix, and now… well, it’s still broken. (I know, you can see everything just fine! But none of the shopping links work at the moment, which is problematic.) I’m still trying to figure that out, but in the meantime, two things:

1) I am not dead. Hi! Still alive! I hope you and yours have had a peaceful and joyous holiday season.

2) A looooong time ago I asked y’all if you would be interested in hearing about my experiences with the Invisalign system, and you said yes, and then I promptly never mentioned it again because I am the worst. Whoops! Please forgive me. My son and I both went through treatment and now have awesome smiles, and I wrote a four-part series about it for Alpha Mom and you should check it out. Start here, then read part 2, then go to part 3, and then you’re ready for the final installment, after we’re all done. Bonus: these posts contain dorky selfies of me, which my daughter informs me means I am “so extra,” and if I had any idea what that meant I guess I might feel insulted.

Site work will continue and I’ll be back shortly (I hope).

Get ready to smile

Want a whiter smile for the holidays? Here’s a crazy deal on teeth-whitening, because why not:

Right now Amazon has this Bonus pack of Crest 3D Whitestrips available for $45 with an available $15 off coupon you can clip. That’s pretty good—$30 is close to its all-time-lowest price—but you can also apply coupon code 15SNWSTRP22 at checkout for another $15 off. Then you’re paying just $15 for the whole shebang.

I mean, it may not be the stocking-stuffer for everyone, but a deal’s a deal, man.

National Free Shipping Day? Okay!

Honestly, it’s not like I normally have a problem getting to the minimum shipping threshold at the Gap family of stores—between the shared cart between Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic and the sorts of clothes I’m most often buying for my family it’s not a problem—but I’m sure not going to turn down my chance to pick up a few last-minute items on sale and with free shipping. So hop to it, today (Friday, December 14th) only!

Use coupon code SHIPDAY across all their sites to ship any size order for free. Old Navy has $8 holiday sweatshirts, tons of markdowns, and coupon code MORE will take 20% off any order of 30% off $75+. Banana Republic is taking an automatic 40% off everything and an additional 10% off sweaters. And Gap has up to 50% off everything, automatically, a slew of “mystery deals,” plus coupon code GIFTS takes another 20% off.

Honestly, what are you waiting for?
