My darlings, I’ve been hiding something from you. I’m sorry. But I’m ready to tell you all about it, and I will, just a little bit later this morning. Pinky swear! Until then, let’s all have a look at the Amazon Friday Sale, shall we?

Oh… my. This may be the best “retail gone wrong” I’ve seen in the Friday Sale for a long time. Who needs a shag leather rug? When I saw the thumbnail picture I thought it was a pumice stone. Heh. Oh, wait—clearly that goes on the floor right next to your red satin sheets. Um. Okay, now I’m speechless.

Got frying pans? This KitchenAid hard anodized pair is down to just $35.99 shipped, plus it’s part of the 4-for-3 promotion, which could mean even bigger savings if you’re buying multiple items.

I’m digging this Metro Stainless Steel Cookware Set for a great starter set, or maybe a camping/second home set? Anyway, 14 pieces, down to just $61 shipped.

You know I can’t resist a chance to highlight the Big Daddy of all blenders, right? And if you’re thinking “Good Lord, who would pay $350 for a blender??” know that I feel you, but also spend a little time here to understand why, should I ever win the lottery or whatever, I will be buying one of these blenders immediately.

Well hello there, shiny KitchenAid mixer marked down to just $238 shipped. How you doin’?

I haven’t had the Godiva coffee pods before, but between coupon code SENSE3I2 and Subscribe & Save, it comes to $21 for 6 packages, or about $3.50 a pack. Seems like a pretty decent deal. (I love my Senseo, but sniffing around for deals on pods is kind of a drag.)

Did you stock up on flowering tea sets when I told you to? No? Well, they’re back down to $15 each, and they make great teacher gifts….

Gluten-free? Stock up on Ener-G light brown rice loaf (it freezes just fine!); with Subscribe & Save and today’s price, it’s just $13.60 shipped for 6 loaves.

And don’t forget—for the entire month of May, there’s 50 MP3 album downloads for just $5 each, so no need to wait for one you want to come up in the weekly sale. It’s probably there, already!

Okay, you go check out the sale, and I’ll be back in a little bit with my cool news. I just need to find some coffee, first.


  1. You didn’t mention the Obama blanket. Maybe use it in the same room with the leather shag and the red satin sheets.

  2. Ooh, you just reminded me to go get my coffee out of the microwave…thanks! See, we come to Want Not for much more than just shopping tips. 🙂

  3. Many years ago I worked at an office that brewed Godiva Creme Brulee coffee in the breakroom. It was ridiculously good, possibly the best flavored coffee I’ve ever tried. It was so good, when the company hit budget problems, they decided to keep the fancy coffee and just lay off the entire communications department instead. Alas, that included me, and I haven’t had Godiva coffee since. Any flavored-coffee-loving-Senseo-user should buy it.

  4. I was too scared to click through, but I’m thinking that rug will soften your fall when you innocently ROLL OVER AND SLIDE RIGHT OUT OF BED due to those sheets.

  5. I’m in love with that blender… but we’ve yet to win the lottery.

  6. Only one leather shag rug left–order soon!

  7. I Love the flowering tea sets and gonna order a few just for me!
