Hey there, Friday

Another week is nearly over, and that means it’s time for me to ponder the Amazon Friday Sale and feel guilty about the brownies I ate last night. (No, they’re not related. I just like to do both of these things on Friday.)

I love that this Speedo parka is in the Friday Sale today. Does that come with Michael Phelps? Please?

Looking for some little red shoes? I’m loving these peep-toes. Rowr!

How about $100 off on a Dyson DC17? That still makes it about $300 out of my price range, but maybe you love your asthmatic kids more than I love mine.

The Braun Multimix is back. Love this thing. Especially for folks in tight quarters (or on tight budgets) who can’t have a mixer and a food processor.

Support the fight against breast cancer by straightening your hair. Or something. (Nice price on a CHI, even if the whole pink thing irks me a little.)

This week’s sale isn’t really knocking my socks off. Let me know if you see something great I’m overlooking.

Don’t forget the Friday Five; this week features one of my favorites (Weezer, I’m looking at you).

Also, a little heads-up for you: Several of you have mailed me to mention that Old Navy is running an in-store denim special tomorrow (Saturday, August 23rd) $7 for kids’ jeans, $12 for adults’. Not available online, unfortunately.



  1. Mir, my e-mail re Old Navy denim reads “in stores and online”. I really hope that’s the case, as family’s coming to celebrate the kidlet’s birthday, and it would be kind of frowned upon if I were off at Old Navy during the party.

    … but I really need jeans. 😉

  2. My email reads the same thing as Jess… I think I might do both as they put a dumb 3 pair minimum for my 4 person family who needs more than one pair of jeans each. 🙂

  3. Daughter loves Old Navy. That is, when she’s not loving Steve and Barry’s. Me? I pink puffy heart Wantnot!

  4. I’m with you on this Friday’s Sale. And, what does “unknown binding” mean in all the shoe and bag descriptions? And why do they put things in the Friday Sale that aren’t eligible for free shipping? Kinda takes the joy out of those cheap little treasures when ya know it will cost 3X the price to ship it. Not that I don’t love the Friday Sale, mind you. I’m just sayin’.

  5. thanks for the Weezer heads-up! dh has been harassing me for not getting it at Hot Topic for 10 bucks (I was embarrassed to even BE in HT at my age much less buy anything!) so I came out ahead after all 🙂

  6. probably too late now, but if you get into the store tonight and buy some jeans, you can avoid some of the madness tomorrow – just take your receipt and go in and get a price adjustment… plus, there’s no limit on how many pair you can buy today, but there’s a three pair limit tomorrow…

  7. Don’t forget the Friday Five is good on Saturday, too!

    I grabbed 4 out of the 5 this week — including Weezer, of course!
