Gear up with Eddie

It’s time for one of my favorite (and rare) sale events: Right now almost everything at Eddie Bauer is automatically at least 40% off (if not more), and you’ll get free shipping on every order, regardless of how much you spend. Gearing up for a safari? Free shipping. Want a single pair of socks? Free shipping!

If you want even more extra savings, shop the Clearance and apply coupon code MARCH50 for another 50% off the reduced price. You know that’s where I’m shopping.

Usually they have a sale or free shipping, but not both. Don’t miss your chance to scoop up these deals.

Time to make the kids adorable

Really the only reason I can think of to have a lot of kids is so that you can dress them alike for holidays, right? I mean, I’m not an expert or anything, but I’m pretty sure that’s true.

If your kids are still wearing actual kid sizes (as opposed to having a kid who now regularly raids your closet, not naming any names…), today’s a good day to go stock up at Children’s Place on everything, because they’ve got matching Easter clothes, sure, but also everything else they might need, and today:
1) The whole store is at least 60% off,
2) except for shoes, which are 50% off,
3) and you earn $10 Place Cash for every $10 spent,
4) plus every order ships for free!

I see they’ve even expanded their sizing some since my kids outgrew them—there’s an entire “tween” section now. I’m only a little bitter.

The word of the day is DeWalt

Whether you’re doing some home improvement or you (or someone you love, say, perhaps, someone who you’ll want to give something manly for Father’s Day, which is closer than you think) work in an industry requiring sturdy footwear and power tools, you’re not going to want to miss today’s Special Buy of the Day at Home Depot. They’ve got all manner of DeWalt goodies—from entire tool sets to steel-toed boots—up to 55% off with free shipping.

This is a particularly good deal if you want some of those shoes. Did you know DeWalt makes sneaker-looking shoes and non-safety-shoes, too? I didn’t, but now I do. Anyway. Take a look; those work boots almost never go on sale.

Need giant duffel bags?

If you do a quick search here on the site, you’ll find that I’ve gotten overly excited about Samsonite’s Tote-a-Ton duffel bags on more than one occasion. They’re huge, and when they’re on deep discount, I’m usually right there reminding you that these are the perfect bags for college students—haul everything you need into the dorm, then fold it up to the size of a pair of socks and stash it.

Well, well, well. It looks like we have an imposter on our hands, but at $8 apiece, pose away, I say. Today Macy’s has this Marc NY Carry-A-Ton Duffel Bag (hmmm… that name sounds… sort of familiar!) available in three different colors for just $8 apiece. These bags are 32″ x 17″ x 11.5″, whereas the Samsonite ones are an inch longer on the first dimension (identical, otherwise), but I don’t know how much an inch really matters.

Whether you’re sending a kid off to college, need to get things organized in storage, or have gifts to buy… you’d be hard-pressed to find a bag this size for any cheaper. Shipping is free if you pick up at your local store, or on your $48+ order to your home.

Love Levi’s? You’ll love this

A great-fitting pair of jeans is pretty much the Holy Grail for every woman I know, and so I know that when I find a pair I love I stock up. Recently I found a pair of Levi’s while I was thrifting that have since become a favorite, so imagine my delight when I hopped over to their site today and discovered they’re doing their Friends & Family sale!

Just use coupon code LETSGO for 30% off and free shipping on every order. It works on items already on sale, so that can add up to huge savings.

Plus, it’s not like all they sell is jeans. I mean, yes, they have jeans. All kinds of jeans! For the whole family! But they have lots of other stuff, too.

So here’s a new thing

Hello! You may have noticed that there’s a new display doohickey (technical term) along the side of the blog now, and that leads to my Poshmark closet. For the last few months I’ve started working on both cleaning out some excess and turning my love of actual, physical thrifting into a revenue stream instead of just being someone who has way too many clothes. (Although, listen, I recently found myself the softest cashmere cardigan in the history of ever for a dollar. True story.) I’m still wading through literal stacks of clothing to list, but I’m getting there.

So! What does this mean? Well, first of all, if you haven’t joined Poshmark yet, and you elect to, you can put wantnotdotnet as your invite code and you’ll get a $5 credit toward your first purchase and I’ll get a $5 credit for inviting you. That’s good, because it saves you money and I am still getting the hang of not spending all my proceeds (because, seriously, some of the deals there are bananas). Second, I will give an automatic 10% off to any blog reader who shops my closet and buys 1-2 items, plus I offer an automatic 15% off to everyone if you buy 3+ items, but for blog readers I will make that 20%. The only hitch here is that communication on Poshmark is somewhat limited, so you either need to email me or comment on an item (“Love your blog” or “longtime blog reader” or whatever you want) so that I know to give you the discount. Note that items have prices, but you can either make an offer on a single item or create a bundle and then make an offer on the bundle.

Anyway, that’s part of what I’ve been up to, and another way you can save some money with me these days. Questions? Comments? Requests? Hit me up!

Helloooooo chocolate bars

Maybe you have a kid away at college. Maybe you’re planning for Easter baskets. Maybe you just really enjoy chocolate. I don’t judge, on account of I believe that chocolate is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Whatever the reason, this deal is too good to pass up: Amazon currently has this Hershey Candy Bar 18-pack (6 each of full-sized milk chocolate bars, Kit Kats, and Reese’s Cups) listed at $11.84, which is already a decent price. But you can also buy it on Subscribe & Save (saving an additional 5% or 15%, depending on the number of items this month), plus there’s a 20% off clippable coupon. You could end up paying just $7.20 for 18 full-size candy bars, shipped!

Maybe don’t eat them all at once, though.

These are a few of my favorite things…

Although I don’t get the same rush nowadays as I used to when there’s a new Target Beauty Box, I do still perk up a bit. And it’s like they made this March box just for me—lavender, argan oil, shea butter? That’s my beauty jam, and this month for just $7 shipped I can try $18 worth of rad new-to-me products. Plus that toner for redness-prone skin is calling my name, because one of the joys of aging (harhar) is that now my skin gets splotchy at the drop of a hat. (Middle age is awesome!)

I notice they’ve dropped the coupon for your future beauty purchase from the box (boo), but I’m still in for a cheap assortment of travel-size goodies. Target, I just can’t quit you.

Here, I make an exception for shipping

You know how I like to say that paying for shipping is for suckers. Most of the time, I think that’s true. Many (most?) online retailers offer free shipping one way or another, with some regularity. One of the very few exceptions I make to this rule is when Dillard’s takes an additional 40% off their clearance like they’re doing right now. Dillard’s charges a flat $10(ish; I think it’s $9.95) for shipping no matter what, always. And that’s a bummer. But. When they start taking these additional discounts on clearance items, I nearly always go ahead and shop them anyway. It’s a great time to pick up an otherwise expensive bed linen set, or a kitchen electric, or even a fancy dress (prom season will be here before you know it). And yes, I’d rather not pay for shipping, but these savings usually make it worth it.

And while I’m browsing (did I mention that my oldest has come out of her shell in college and I had no idea there were so many formals and semi-formals because she never went to any of them in high school…?), let me just say that the trend toward fancy-schmancy gowns having pockets is delighting me to no end.

Savings for the cool kids

It’s another big sale at Tillys, and because I once gave birth to two adorable small babies who are now both taller than I am and supposed adults with style, this pleases me. Tillys specializes in clothing, shoes, and accessories for the trendy, and is one of my favorite places to pick up expensive sneakers on the cheap.

So right now they have their sale items marked down again with as much as an additional 70% off, and you automatically get free shipping on your $49+ order. But! Coupon code H2W64ZMHNFRP will get you free shipping on any size order, plus if you find yourself grabbing stuff at regular price (hey, that’s not my style, but you do you), the code will also take an extra 20% off your highest-price non-sale item.

Anyway, whether you’re looking for a unicorn headband and some bath bombs or a cool pair of Vans, chances are today’s the right day to score a deal.
