I’m taking my needlephobic-yet-dying-to-get-earrings tween to get her ears pierced, this afternoon. Please pray for me. By way of preparation, I’ve decided to spend the entire day in complete silence. You know, to calm my nerves before the screaming begins.
Fortunately, I can type very quietly, which means we can still explore the Amazon Friday Sale here in my cone of silence. Hooray!
Does Dad want a drill this Father’s Day? This Bosch 14.4V model looks like a great deal to me at under $100. (Where’s our resident tool expert to weigh in? BB, you out there?)
Need an airbed? Get this Eddie Bauer queen version for half its current price at Target. (It even has a built-in pump, which is key. G’head—ask me how I know that. I’m sure I couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to have bought a pumpless version and then taken it camping like a moron. Ahem.)
I’m sure you need to have the same brand of knives for this santoku box to actually fit them, but $4 for a Wolgang Puck cutting board/box seems like a crazy good deal, to me. At that price I might be tempted to just try it out.
Who needs silverware? (I love spoons that are all oval-y and swoopy like that. They’re the best kind for ice cream.) (Yes, oval-y and swoopy is the technical term. I’m an ice cream spoon scientist.)
There’s lots of cookware deals this week. If you want traditional (not non-stick) Calphalon, I recommend this set ($155; 68% off); if you want stainless, go for this non-stick Cuisinart set ($140; 75% off) or this traditional Cuisinart set ($110; 66% off); and if you want non-stick anodized, go for this Anolon set ($180; 78% off). And then invite me to dinner!
This hot chocolate frother seems like kind of a silly item, to me, but it’s eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion and could potentially help you knock out a bunch of those “what-do-I-get-them-for-the-holidays” kinds of gifts.
Hooray, the cheap towel sets are back! As low as $21 for a set of 6 in the white, with other colors costing a bit more. (I love white towels, anyway. No worries about the color fading!)
Don’t forget to check out the Friday Five, five MP3 albums for just $5 apiece, today only! On the righthand side of that page there’s also a link to a free gigantic music sampler, if free is more your speed.
Have a great Friday, everyone!
