Friday like you never Fridayed before

I hereby declare that no holidays may occur mid-week, on account of it completely messes up… well… everything. Kindly move all celebrations—particularly those involving my children staying up too late—to the weekend. Thank you.

In the meantime, let’s all enjoy the Amazon Friday Sale while visions of sleeping in tomorrow dance in our heads. Yes.

I sort of love these Geox Holly sneakers. (If you want ’em and your size is available both places, clean up by doing a pricematch on them at Zappos for the greatest savings.)

It’s not exactly the season for a weed whacker, but it is the season for a cheap weed whacker that you’ll be delighted to remember you have in the Spring. Honest.

This Black and Decker cordless lithium-ion drill is marked down to $99.99. Which is cheap enough that I’m not even going to harp on the fact that I’m not sure why a drill needs lithium or ions.

It told me it’d be back… it’s the FURminator!

They’re known mostly for their bike trailers, but I assume this Burley jogger stroller is just as well-made as their trailers, plus the seatbelt system looks like it belongs on the space shuttle.

Yeah, um, in case any one is wondering what I’d like for Christmas? I’ll take one of these. Heh.

Need a wedding gift that looks like you spent more than you did? Check out this kitchen tool set and prepare to look like a big spender.

It’s been a while since we had a great Friday deal on a whole set of cookware. And it’s dishwasher safe!

Remember a while back, when we talked about rice cookers? And how some of them are really expensive but there are reasons why they’re worth it? Check out this Sanyo rice cooker if you’re ready to make the leap to a professional-quality machine. After you swallow your tongue from seeing the price, soothe yourself with the knowledge that it’s nearly half off. Also, this is the cheapest I’ve ever seen it.

It’s not that you don’t enjoy trying to find the inevitable burnt-out bulb on your string of conventional Christmas lights, but maybe you’re ready to make the move to LED Christmas lights, which will more or less work forever. These are half off, and also eligible for the buy 3, get 1 one free promotion. Which means that for $45 you could have 4 strings of lights, which should be plenty unless you live in a mansion or your last name is Griswold.

When Lenox holiday ornaments are this cheap, you can use ’em for teacher gifts, decorate packages with them, give ’em out as last-minute gifts for folks who deserve a little thank-you…. (These are also eligible for the buy 3, get 1 free.)

Have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. Could you post the link to the earlier description of why rice cookers are fabulous?

    I have Grinch-like tendencies when it comes to gratuitous kitchen electrics. (Like the iced tea maker that replaces a far more versatile two or three quart boiler.) But if I’m just ignorant about rice cookers, please enlighten me!


  2. Curious: Here is the original discussion, with today’s rice cooker having been mentioned back then as costing $155. Today it’s under $90. 🙂 Hope that helps!

  3. Oh my, that massage chair… I experienced the joy of one at my sweetie’s family gathering and embarrased him greatly with my oohs and ahs of bliss. Made his uncle’s eyes go wide.

  4. I just got a Furminator for my cat. It really is amazing. I’m not going to tell you how much I paid for it, though…let’s just say fewer hairballs is worth any price.

  5. I like cooking, and I like my dishwasher. The 10 piece set for 100 bucks was just what I needed! Thanks!

  6. I’d get the FURminator for our rabbits, but they’re so small (dwarf bunnies) that this thing might take their heads off.

  7. Did I buy the pink measuring cups and measuring spoons? Yes I totally did.
