The sun’ll come out, on Friday

It’s been raining here all week. But today it’s supposed to be sunny. Have I mentioned lately that I love Fridays?

And look—here comes the Amazon Friday Sale!

This Nine West sandal comes in limited size/color combos, but may I just say that the red snakeskin ones rock my world? (They don’t have them in my size. But if they did… well, I would find someplace to wear them.)

I love the idea of a portable jump-starter. But then I realize that I’d probably forget to charge it, and my interest sort of wanes. (Nice price on that for someone a little more together than me, though.)

Mother’s Day is coming up! How better to delight mom (or grandmom) than with breakfast in bed served upon a personalized tray? Put photos of the kids in there and you’re good to go.

I’m loving this bench, and thanks to the magic of Friday Sale technology, today the 3-seater version is actually cheaper than the 2-seater.

I can’t be absolutely certain, but I’m pretty sure this is an Easy-Bake Oven for grown-ups. Which: weird. But also sort of cool.

Did you miss your chance to stock up on Magic Erasers, last time? Buy ’em via Subscribe & Save and you’ll get 24 for $16.74 shipped!

Got wipes? Baby wipes, that is. Choose from a deal on Huggies wipes with shea butter (which show up as “Huggies-Butter-Wipes” on the title bar, much to my endless amusement; wipe that baby down with butter!) or go the all-natural route with the Eco Wipes on sale. (The Eco Wipes can be ordered via Subscribe & Save for extra savings, too—700 wipes for $18.69 delivered. That’s less than 3 cents per wipe.)

I am positively entranced by these Fit & Fresh Lunch Chillers. I’m thinking they’d be a cheap(er) option for when I do bento lunches for the kids.

Don’t forget to check out the Amazon Friday Five, five MP3 albums available for download for just $5 each. And you sort of have to love Amazon for putting KT Tunstall and Prince on either side of the original cast recording of The Lion King. Heh.

Also, be sure to check the Gold Box Deals if you’ve got a little train-addict on your hands—today you can pick up a 5-disc Thomas and Friends DVD set for just $27.99 shipped! It looks to me like those are individually packaged, too, so what’s to stop you from picking it up for the gift closet, and giving them out individually…? I won’t tell.

Have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. You do bento lunches?? My son starts kindergarten in the fall, and I’ve lost several hours looking at kid’s bento lunches on flickr. Can you do a post on bentos? I’m not sure how that translates into saving money/good deals…but I’d love to see it! 🙂

  2. Great–now I’m going to be singing songs from “Annie” all day. Thanks for the deals tho!

  3. There’s also a code for the eco-wipes that takes 10% off (the original price = $2.20 discount) making the total for 700 wipes $16.49! I hope these are good wipes ‘cuz I just got 700 of them!
    Code is GRNBB409

  4. Costco’s generic wipes are still cheaper – $15.49 for 704 wipes, BUT if you don’t live near a Costco, the Eco-wipes are a great deal!

  5. I use the Fit and Fresh Lunch on the Go boxes for my three pre-schoolers and they are perfect! They are definitely a more affordable “bento-esque” solution that keeps me from using tons of baggies and Saran Wrap.

  6. No, the *crockpot* is the easy bake oven for grownups… 😉

    at least that’s how I refer to it.
