Friday’s going into the woods

We’re going camping this weekend, which means that tonight I’ll be sitting around a campfire, telling my kids to please, for the love of all that’s holy, just stop touching each other. Doesn’t that sound magical? I may need some good Amazon Friday Sale mojo before we leave, just to… ummm… give me luck.

The 10-piece Earth Pan set is back, this time at $115 shipped. This is a great alternative if you want a non-stick surface but are worried about the chemicals in conventional Teflon coating.

And if you just want uncoated Calphalon, the ubiquitous everyday pan and stockpot are back in the Friday Sale for your bargain purchasing pleasure.

I don’t know why this umbrella-shaped photo holder delights me so, but it’s one of my favorite gifts to give. Today it’s $17 shipped and eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion, so if you buy four, they’re just $12.75 apiece.

Need a handy filler item for your order, to get free shipping? There’s a 3-pack of Elmer’s glue sticks for $1.24 or a 3-pack of Scotch Magic Tape for $2.64. (The best part is the “Related Items From External Websites” part way down at the bottom; doesn’t everyone who spends a few bucks on tape go on to buy Versace eyeglasses?)

I know that school already started and also that my middle schooler would simply die if I tried to get her to carry something like this, but nevertheless, I may have to borrow someone’s kindergartener so that I can justify the purchase of this lunch box. So cute!

I’m sorry; I couldn’t not click on something listing itself as a Magical Lingerie Magical Panty. Sadly, I can now report it’s merely a padded pair of panties. In case you need more booty. And on behalf of women everywhere with more than enough booty, I would like to offer up some of mine to those less fortunate. I mean, as long as we’re being magical and everything.

Today’s Gold Box Deal is a fancy Garmin wrist watch GPS with heart monitor, the perfect gift for a cross-country running enthusiast. Or for someone with heart issues who gets lost easily. Either way.

And don’t forget to check out October’s 50 MP3 albums for just $5 each, because it’s a great way to bulk up your music collection on the cheap.

I know I still owe you contest winners from yesterday, and they’re coming, as is another contest for tomorrow. I’m just… ummm… running a little behind. And possibly I packed the winners with the marshmallows. I’ll check.


  1. Ohhh camping – hope its not too rainy – and you get to see fall colors!

  2. we are going camping this weekend too . . . our first time as a family (as opposed to with scouts, etc). I’ll take some luck too! lol have fun!

  3. Mir.. I love your sense of humor… the way you word things on this site.. Ya make me smile 🙂

  4. Don’t worry – that all-grown-up middle school phase is usually replaced by the “baby me again!” phase. My high schooler would gladly carry that lunch kit, or the monkey or the ladybug.

  5. I had to laugh at the comment about padded underwear. I went shopping for jeans this week and was amazed at the amount of jeans that say they will give you more lift. As yet another woman with PLENTY of shape, more lift would probably be hazardous to those around me. I too would be glad to donate to those less fortunate.
