Overstock is still running their 10% off coupon. Be sure to check out the Steal of the Day—today it’s a 200 thread count Egyptian cotton sheet set. True, it’s not going to offer the ultimate luxury of some of the higher thread counts, but it’s a perfectly serviceable set of sheets, and if you’re buying for a king or cal king bed, the price is certainly right ($26.99 before coupon).
The Amazon Friday sale is offering too many things I want this week. I shall have to practice a bit of self-control, which is good for me. Or something. Hmph.
Going camping, or looking to start stocking up for next season? You might want to check out this self-inflating mat. Or perhaps this mummy sleeping bag. (Although, a bag like that is overkill for casual family summer camping. The mats are a great item to have regardless of your level of roughing-it, though, unless you enjoy having sticks and pebbles poke you in the back all night long.)
For those of you who don’t read me elsewhere, you may not know that I broke down and bought myself a Roomba from the Friday sale a few weeks back. The good news is that I got a great deal; the bad news is that it was broken; the better news is that iRobot customer service gets two thumbs up from me: they replaced my faulty reconditioned unit with a brand new one, no questions asked. Now? I love my Roomba with a deep, abiding, and slightly unholy love. Love. It. There’s another reconditioned Roomba up for sale today, and it’ll run you just $134.99 after coupon FALLSAVE. I say go for it. Everyone should have their own robot. (Mine is cleaning the kitchen right now, while I sit here at my computer. Love!)
Not that I’m encouraging you to spend frivolously. No no no! Please shop responsibly. But if you can responsibly manage to get a Roomba, all the better….
