Get your Friday on

Good morning! We’ve come to the end of another week, and what better way to wrap it up than with some finds at the Amazon Friday Sale? (What’s that you say? Wrapping it up with your very own money tree and a burly man feeding you chocolate while you lounge on silk pillows would be better? Well… hey, if you can get that, great, I guess.)

It’s probably bad that I’d rather have this mixer than a guy feeding me chocolate, right? (But… but… it’s so shiny! And could make so many batches of cookies!)

How about a nice shiny yellow reconditioned Dyson? If only it came with someone to do the vacuuming for you…. (Maybe I could get the guy with the chocolate to do it!)

I love this umbrella photo holder, which is down to $16.49 and eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion. These would be good for Mother’s/Father’s Day, you know. Just sayin’.

Looking for an unusual baby shower gift? These Candela Tooli Lights are perfect for the nursery and beyond—kids love them, and unlike other rechargeable lights, they have a soft glow and no parts little fingers could break off.

Don’t forget to check out the Friday Five; five MP3 albums for just $5 each, plus there’s bonus free song downloads available in the MP3 store, too.

I’d love to spend some more time poking around the Friday Sale, but I have to go sign my life away. Er, go do the paperwork for our refinance. (You did look into refinancing when we talked about a little while back, right?) Why, our new mortgage payment is going to be about three really good pairs of shoes lower than our previous one. Maybe I’ll be able to get that mixer….

Have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. Do you have a code for a free photo book from Shutterfly or Snapfish? I saw one somewhere and now I can’t find it. I believe the deadline was the end of February or mid-March. I need to make a book for my daughter’s wedding to use as a guest book. Free would be really nice. Thanks for all you do to save us money!

  2. How many pairs of shoes can you get for $78,000?

    That’s how much we will save over the life of our loan, thanks to a refi. And because I read it here, which reminded me to talk to my husband about it BEFORE he actually brought it up, I look all smart and stuff in his eyes (he’s usually the Big Picture Finance Guy, I’m usually the Day-to-Day Money Management Gal in our relationship). Thanks for the helpful nudge on that one, and enjoy your new shoes!

  3. Why does he have to be a “burly” man? For some reason, I picture my hairy plumber.

  4. Two comments on this sale:

    Different colored mixers are different prices, so check them all out.

    I have a reconditioned Dyson and I HIGHLY recommend them!

    Thanks for all the great deals, pretty Mir!

  5. I have that very mixer, and if my house was burning down, I would run back in to save it. Um, after the family and dog were out safely, of course.

  6. Wait, is there a free shipping code for the burly man and the money tree?

  7. That mixer is even less in ‘licorice’: it’s $309.99. Yes it’s a yucky color, but it would still make the same cookies, no?
