My Friday, tis of thee. . .

Oh, okay. I won’t sing.

But I will get my Amazon Friday Sale on, because that’s what Fridays are for.

We’re a long way from boot weather, here in Georgia, but perhaps your own impending cold weather plus the lure of boots in a plethora of colors and the possibility of up to 55% off will lure you in?

If loving these sandals is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

It’s not the top-of-the-line, but if you’ve been trying to find a GPS unit for under $100, you might want to check out this Nextar W3-01.

I had no idea it mattered or that you could specifically buy sleeping bags with zippers on a certain side, but if you’re wanting an olive green left-zip sleeping bag for cold-weather camping, check this one out, because it’s under $20. (But only in olive! With the left-hand zipper!) For slightly more—and no hard thinking about colors or zipper sides—you could get this mummy bag instead, I suppose.

I own this cooler and I love it, though I had to lug mine home from Target instead of getting free shipping, plus I did not receive a bonus jug. I feel strangely cheated.

Remember the cookware sets from last week? They’re baa-aaack! Choose KitchenAid ($129.99), Calphalon ($139.99), or Cuisinart ($149.99). They’re all great deals if you need a complete set.

Okay, I know it’s not as pretty as your great-grandmother’s gravy boat, but the thermal gravy server is a marvel. Hand to God. Piping hot gravy. I’m drooling a little, just thinking about it.

Want to bake bread in three different sizes, automatically? This Panasonic bread maker is top-of-the-line, with fabulous reviews. Perfect for a large family, or a smaller family that sometimes likes to bake more for company!

Here’s a fun little gift for your favorite tree-hugger: a clock that runs on water.

There’s a ton of kids’ watches in the sale today (and also some scary, blinged-out men’s watches…), but I think my favorite is this Bionicles one. That’d make a nice stocking stuffer for the Lego-nut in your life.

Don’t forget to check out the Friday Five, too—five album downloads just $5 each!

Have a great Friday, everyone. Heck, have a second cup of coffee. I won’t tell anyone.


  1. Gee, on MY old sleeping bag, if I want the zipper on the other side, I just flip the whole thing over. 😉

  2. If you’ve got a right-handed and left-handed sleeping bag of the same style, you can zip them together and make a 2-person sleeping bag. Now THAT’S my idea of camping 🙂

    Um… I have to admit I never got into Bionicle… why is there a green turnip on the Bionicles watch?

  3. Love the song references. And go ahead and sing if you want to. We won’t care.

  4. Thanks, Mir – picked up the Bionicles watch for the gift closet. Loads of 8- and 9-year-old boy birthdays coming up.
