Friday, what took you so long?

The Amazon Friday Sale is looking promising this week. I’ll be back with some of my picks after I throw my children under the bus. Er, after I walk the kids to the bus stop and kiss them goodbye with the utmost of care and love even though they left their boots at school and it’s snowing and they’re crying that their feet are cold.

Er, I’ll be back in a little bit.

(Okay! I’m back! And everyone is… not my problem until 3:15 or so.)

Once upon a time I hired some people to make our closets pretty. Suffice it to say that it cost a lot more than this deluxe closet, which is nearly the same thing except that you have to install it yourself.

You all went crazy over these headlamps last time they came around. I still don’t know why. But there you go.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t get the excitement over Prada stuff (particularly given the price). But that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy Prada plex parrot pin as a tongue-twister.

Ooooh… here’s an awesome tricycle at a great price. Perfect if your little dictator demands that you push, sometimes.

Excuse me while I pet the pretty Calphalon. What?

I have no idea why this is in the Friday Sale. But it sure looks neat, doesn’t it?

These blue full spectrum lights almost never go on sale. That’s an awesome price; so awesome, I’m thinking of trading in my old-fashioned light box for one. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about or why, then you don’t have SAD, and you are very lucky.)

Like Luna bars? Add $39 worth to your cart and you can take $10 off with coupon code BARS2007. Coupon code GROCERY4 may still be working for $10 off, as well. I’m gonna go test that out. Okay, yes—if you get your cart up to $49+, you can also use the GROCERY4 coupon, so you can get 4 boxes of Luna bars (that’s 60 bars) for under $30 shipped.


  1. Hey beautiful Mir,
    Wanted to comment on the awesome headlamp. I bought a similar one at Target (although not sure if it has the same features) for $9.99. As my dog is a runner, I put it around his neck and I can see him when we take our night walks.
    I love it!

  2. Hey, Mir! I received a free book in the mail yesterday, and I was puzzled as to where it came from, and then I remembered your tip on the free Anthony Bourdain book back in September. Thanks! I love to get surprises in the mail.

  3. Stephaine,
    Mine arrived yesterday, too! And yeah – I’d forgotten, as well. 🙂

  4. Mir, you’re my savior, and a pretty one at that!! I just ordered the light box to replace my HUGE old clunky one. I’d like one that I could bring to work if I end up not having time at home to sit in front of the dang thing and I just can’t lug that big old thing to work.

    The price?? WOWZA!! That’s great. GREAT!! THANK YOU EVER SO MUCH!!

    ~ Judy 🙂

  5. Oh, thank you Stephanie! I had NO IDEA why I received a book in the mail! That solves that mystery!

  6. Ha! I got that book too and was like, “wait a minute, did I agree to review THIS?” Pretty funny.

  7. Oh yeah, got my book yesterday, too. It took me a minute to figure out why I had a package waiting on my doorstep. And the suntan/tattoo free sample thingie came in the mail today. It’s a wantnot postal frenzy this week!

  8. The book got very good reviews on Amazon by the way.
