This Friday brought to you by SUGAR

It’s Friday the 13th. That’s already scary, but the scariest thing? All of the Valentine’s Day parties happening at school today. I’ve decided to enter the Witness Protection Program before my kids get home—it just seems prudent.

But maybe I can scoop up a few Amazon Friday Sale deals before I go….

Just in case you need a briefcase that coordinates with your swiss army knife, there you go. Actually, this would be an awesome briefcase for the guy who thinks it’s okay to carry a backpack for the rest of his life.

I’m not a huge fan of the looks of these Teva hikers, but the espresso color is under $20, which would be hard to beat for shoes of that quality.

I… really don’t know what this thing is. It measures voltage! For… stuff! Also, it’s 69% off (even compared to the other buying choices), so if you know what it is, maybe you want it.

Do you know what’s fun to say? Mocha mugs! Try it! Mocha mugs, mocha mugs. (The fact that they’re cute and have great reviews makes it even more fun.)

I’ve always really wanted a beautiful cleaver like this one, but I wonder where one keeps one, you know, to avoid finding children chasing each other around with it. I mean, I don’t think it’ll fit in my knife block. (On the other hand, am I the only person who dreams of having a knife I could actually chop up a whole chicken with? Really? Okay, moving on….)

This convection oven isn’t the one I have, but I have to tell you that mine has changed my life. I love being able to remember rolls or a veggie for dinner at the last minute and toss ’em in and be done in five or ten minutes.

Need some herbal baby wipes (that don’t smell like cucumbers…)? These come down to $12.74 for 6 packs if you buy via Subscribe & Save, which will also give you free shipping. Great deal.

And don’t forget the music—check out the Friday Five for some great Valentine’s Day-appropriate tunes, plus you’ll find a free Mieka Pauley album, and various other free songs. And as an extra-special V-Day bonus, don’t forget to download Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for free, for a limited time.

(Ooooh, Amazon. You vixen!)

Have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. The thing is a voltmeter, which I only know because my husband is a total geek (electrical eng) and already owns one 🙂

  2. I tried to get the Tevas – been debating with myself about them for a while. for $20 I thought hell yeah, but they sold out of my size – while I was online buying them. =(

  3. I was able to get the Tevas, thanks Mir!

  4. You are not the only person who wants a big chicken-choppin’ cleaver. I just got one for myself, for the excellent price of FREE. (My grocery store was running one of those promotions where they give out a sticker for every $10 you spend, and then you can redeem them for prizes, which in this case was cutlery and knives.) I’ve tested it, and it certainly can whack right through a chicken bone.

    I keep it in a drawer, and trust that my son either isn’t going to be curious enough to look behind the saran wrap and tin foil boxes, or if he does find it, he’ll be clever enough to know that it is NOT A TOY FOR KIDS.

    It is a fun toy for me, but I wouldn’t spend $100+ on one. My good chef’s knife works just as well for tasks like cutting apart chicken leg quarters into leg and thigh portions. It was definitely worth the price I paid for it, though!

  5. my husband went wild for the voltmeter. Life with an EE is always an interesting trip down geek lane.

  6. I’m just wondering what Otto would say if you asked for that chicken chopper cleaver for Valentine’s day…

  7. Thanks for the wipes deal. I am up to my neck in wipes and probably will be for the next ten years, so I love me some wipes discounts.

  8. Ooh, that “briefcase” is a lot nicer than a standard Jack Sack.

  9. Give us some more Hickory Farms’ codes. You got me addicted to their chocolate with your christmas code.

  10. My husband loaned out his multi-meter to someone who returned it broken, your “what is this thing” is a perfect replacement, with free shipping! Yay! So glad I checked your site out. Thanks.

    PS. Is this OK for an anniversary gift?

  11. “It measures voltage! For… stuff!”
    Oh come on, you used to be an engineer! You don’t have to play dumb with us.
