Coffee and a side of Friday Sale

This has been a particularly long week, ’round here. I don’t want to put any pressure on the Amazon Friday Sale, or anything, but this had pretty much be the best sale ever to make up for the rest of the week. Just sayin’.

I wouldn’t have made them a feature in the Electronics section, personally (oh Amazon, why have that section with three measly items?), but still, if you’re looking for a deal on some zoom binoculars, $50 isn’t bad at all.

We already have a chainsaw (thank you, freak winter storm of 2009 where all our trees started falling over), but if we didn’t, I would totally buy this alligator lopper. Because it’s a little chainsaw called an alligator lopper, and it’s adorable with its widdle alligator mouth. (I can’t be certain, but I’m pretty sure this is why my husband does all the tool buying….)

I love these bookends. No need to tell me what a nerd I am; I’m aware.

This litter box is frequently in the Friday Sale, and I giggle at it every time. I mean, sure, $63 is probably a good price for it, but can you really put a price on teaching your cat to go inside a planter to do her thing? I think not.

I have a (lesser) bathtub caddy, and it makes my bathtub feel much fancier than it is. If I had this one with the book stand and wine holder? I’d feel like royalty. This is a great gift for that person who needs to be reminded to pamper herself—pair it with a nice bath salt and you’ll look incredibly generous. I won’t tell you only spent $25.

Looking for a classic stainless set of cookware? I like this Cuisinart one—everything you need, nothing you don’t, right around $100. (Alternatively, they have the hard-anodized nonstick version for about $135, if you prefer.)

It’s baaaa-aaaaack! Everyone’s favorite bread-making machine—absent from the Friday Sale for months—makes its return at just $88 (it’s usually around $100). If you want a bread machine, this is the one to get, and probably the best price you’ll find on it.

Today’s Gold Box Deal doesn’t thrill me (Sims 3 for the PC… meh), but you never know what the Lightning Deals might include, so it’s worth checking over there—it looks like they’re scheduled to have a few different Wii game deals throughout the day.

And don’t forget that the month is almost over—that means your time to scoop up any of the 50 MP3 albums for just $5 each are about to expire for this month.

Have a great Friday, everyone!


  1. You have space on your bookshelves for bookends? I love those bookends, also, but our 12 floor to ceiling bookcases are packed tight. We’d have to get rid of some books to have room for bookends. 🙂

  2. I’m trying not to panic, but THEY HAVE NO SHOES SECTION.

  3. I have to agree with Karen R – I’ve never actually had any NEED for bookends. That’s what the ends of the book case is for!

  4. You think you’re a nerd? I have Lord of the Rings bookends- though like Beth and Karen, I rarely have need of them.

  5. I have those Cuisinart stainless steel pans and they are the best pans I have ever owned. Go buy them now.

  6. I think book ends are for shelves without ends. Of course, that would require proper installation of floating shelves so that they could hold books. That isn’t happening in my near future.

    That bath caddy is totally going on my Christmas list.
