Good morning! I’m off to the nursery today to get plants. Because it’s spring, darn it. The calendar says so. (No, I’m not so much a fan of winter; why do you ask?)
If you live someplace where the idea of starting your garden already is laughable, maybe you’d like to stay home and shop online. In which case, let me help you out.
Did you know that Dyson makes a canister vacuum? I didn’t! But it’s today’s Gold Box Deal; the Dyson DC21 (refurbished) can be yours for $299 shipped. My house is about half hard floors and half carpet, and now I’m totally confused as to which kind of vacuum I ought to have.
Hey Macy’s is having a One Day Sale today. Pretend you’re surprised.
This weekend only, Nine West shoes are just $19.95 at 6pm.com. (I’d have a hard time justifying a pair of cute wedges for my gardening chores, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t try….)
Overstock is having their Big Promo Weekend, which—near as I can tell—means 10% price cuts across several categories. It might be worth a look. Additionally, if you’re making a larger purchase, going through this link here will give you $15 off your $350+ purchase.
Are you shopping for blinds? I realize this is a different sort of plug than I ordinarily do, but I recently picked up some Levolor blinds from Blinds Galore and not only did their price beat everywhere else I looked (and you know I looked everywhere), we had a delivery issue and their customer service was out of this world in making things right. I can’t say enough nice things about them. And through Monday, March 23rd, 2009, use coupon code MARCHMADNESS to get 20% off and free shipping on your $300+ order. That’s on top of an extra 10% off Levolor products and 5% off their brand products, already. (Did I mention that I love them?)
Speaking of March Madness, if it’s finally time to get a HDTV, check out March Madness at Buy.com for some deals. And then please invite me over.
This weekend at Lands’ End, they’re offering 20% off a bunch of their new spring items, plus you can ship your entire order for free with code FAST and PIN 00003905. I do love me some free shipping from Lands’ End.
That should keep you busy for a while. (Pssssst! The stuff about gardening was a little hint. Check back later for a contest.)
I bought seeds yesterday; it snowed overnight. Sigh. Such is life in Wisconsin.
I think I need to plant something this weekend.
other than my rear on the couch.
When you get back from the nursery, pop over to see my page on water use – inside and outside the house. It will be linked in the top box of the middle column.
Also, Want Not got a shout-out in today’s post – announcing my win this week.
I love working in the yard.
I do need 1 or 2 new blinds. Unfortunately, it looks like the Blinds Galore coupon is only good on orders over $300. Bummer.
Thanks for the heads up on 6pm.’s Nine West deal… I might just have to buy a pair (or two).
