Saturday deals

Oh, whoops. Wasn’t I supposed to come back with some deals, yesterday? I think I was. But in my defense, I saw something shiny. (Okay, that’s probably not a very good excuse.)

If you’re doing a little bit of redecorating this summer (I don’t know about you, but as soon as school lets out, I generally lose my mind and decide to do something “simple” like some sort of 10-step faux finish process on the walls in a room, and there goes my vacation…), don’t forget that Home Decorators Collection offers thousands of items with free shipping, every day. And if their low prices aren’t enough for you, there’s always Home Decorators Outlet, where plenty of fancy home goods can be had for a song.

Or—if what you’re needing for the home runs more to bedding and towels—go shop Domestications and for the entire month of June, coupon code D9FAFF15 will give you an additional 15% off their already low prices.

If this weekend brings with it the crushing realization that you haven’t eaten out in forever, then I suggestion you head on over to and use coupon code DINING for 60% off your purchase. You’ll get $25 dining certificates for just $4 out of pocket, but more importantly, you’ll get a night off from cooking.

Still stumped on what to get Dad for Father’s Day? The Discovery Store has some great ideas, plus you can pretend they’re educational, or whatever. (Yes. Deadliest Catch is totally educational. So far, I have learned that I do not want to be a crab fisherman.)

If Dad’s more of a hands-on type, check out today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal—it’s a Hitachi Compound Miter Saw for just under $100. I don’t know why that’s good, but my husband’s eyes kind of rolled back in his head in ecstasy when I showed it to him.

Can’t stomach the thought of driving out to the pet store and hauling home bags of food on your Saturday? For a limited time, PETCO is offering free shipping on your $49+ order, and saving pet-lovers everywhere from having to hit the mall. [Edited to add: I’m sorry, apparently food is excluded from this promo. I am making very angry eyebrows at PETCO right now. Sorry about that!]

Maybe you’re waiting for an engraved invitation, or something, but I’d say it’s well past time to get yourself a new swimsuit. Sometimes waiting pays off, though—all weekend long, Lands’ End Swimwear Sale – Up to 50% off.swimwear is up to 50% off at Lands’ End, plus you can use code SUMMER with PIN 7896 for free shipping on your order.

As much as I love my MacBook, I have an itty bitty crush on those adorable little NetBooks I see everyone carrying around these days. And when you can get one for just under $200, it’s verrrrry tempting. Very tempting indeed.

I’m off to the Farmer’s Market, but I will be back later with a contest. We haven’t had a Saturday contest in a while, and I think it’s time.


  1. But…but…your vacations will be camping trips this year! You can’t remodel a room when you’re out in the great outdoors.

  2. Too bad dog food and cat food are not part of the “free shipping” promo at Petco… 🙁

  3. Aw, I just ordered a Lands End swimsuit on Thursday, to take advantage of free shipping. And now it’s way cheaper. The best laid plans…oh well.

  4. Actually, I went and asked if they ever did price adjustments (which I honestly didn’t know existed before coming to Want Not a while back), and they totally adjusted the price for me! Win one for me!

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mir!

  5. What? No maternity swimsuits at Land’s End. Bummer.

  6. to PJ, call them up and ask if they will adjust the price, they have been very helpful to me in the past.

    I ordered a suit today, I am excited I got a great deal
