Friday, it’s a snowmergency!

I have to write this very quickly, because my town is predicted to receive an entire inch or two of snow in a few hours. I have to run to the store and buy all the toilet paper and milk and bread they have. (I love the south. Truly.)

With that in mind, I guess it’s kind of good that the Amazon Friday Sale is in its newly-shrunken form, with fewer offerings. This should take no time at all.

Thinking of taking up home haircuts? Check out this Wahl Lithium Ion All in One Trimmer for $28. I have a corded trimmer and often wish for a cordless one, and Wahl is pretty much the gold standard.

If your kids like these Clif Twisted Fruit Ropes, today’s your lucky day—the variety pack of 24 is just $11 if you buy via Subscribe & Save. (These are certified organic, by the way.)

This roaster not only makes me long for Thanksgiving (mmmm… turkey!), but it’s down to just $27 and it’s eligible for the 4-for-3 promotion! (No, I don’t think anyone wants to buy four roasters. But you can mix and match eligible items.)

Are you a serious home canner? Check out this 9.5-quart Stainless Steel monstrosity, on sale for just $60 and ready for canning, juicing, whatever.

Today’s Gold Box Deal is a Milwaukee Sawzall for $105, which I would totally get my husband for Valentine’s Day if it didn’t, you know, kind of send the wrong message.

Don’t forget to check out the 100 MP3 albums for just $5 each, too. Friday’s always a good time to get your tunes on.

Elsewhere: Today’s Target Daily Deals include a handy Energizer iPod charger for under $10, as well as a variety of cute things to wear. (Don’t forget code URTYJLI8 for an extra 10% off!)

And over at they’ve got deals on Polliwalks, Clarks, Roxy, Naughty Monkey, and more.

I’m off to stock the bunker. Er, I mean, to buy milk. Or something.


  1. Heh, with the “Milwaukee Sawzall” I think I thought of the WRONG wrong message. Like what one might do with a wood-chipper ever since the movie Fargo, can now be done with a Sawsall. OK, maybe not.

  2. Turkey with brussel sprouts! I love it!

  3. LOL the South! Here in Chicago we had a snow dump this week and pretty much put our cars into low gear and went about our business. On the other hand when hearing about people truly being snowed in out East, then Tweeting about their bare cupboards after a few days, all I could think is that it would take a new Ice Age for us to get through all the cereal I’ve got in my basement pantry. Course, we’d have to eat it with reconstituted dry milk, or snow, or something.

  4. Target Daily Deal had the door chime I needed! I was prepared to spend $30 on a replacement door chime, and instead it was under $5 shipped. Another victory for Want Not!

  5. hmm… might want to hurry with the bread, milk, and tp … I don’t know if there will be any left in about 30 minutes ~ =)

  6. We were forecast to get 1-2 inches of snow here in DFW and we have 12. Hopefully you just get a dusting!

  7. Yesterday I had to dig out 4-5 ft snow drifts to get to my car in the driveway. My town in MD is still under a state of emergency. I’m thinking of moving to the South! 1-2 inches sounds pretty good about now. 🙂

  8. Carrie everyone in the South would probably do that IF we got snow more than once every two or three years. No snow plows and no snow tires down here. It can make for some very dangerous road conditions. And no one has block heaters, I would gather most have never heard of block heaters so if the temps drop too much, cars won’t start. I miss my days living in Montana 🙂 but love my home down South.

  9. Hope you got your milk and bread, nothing like french toast while being snowbound !!! Like you, I love the south but can’t figure out what’s with the run on milk/bread anytime there’s threat of weather: snow, hurricanes, etc. I go for beer and chips, why ‘eat’ healthy when you can have beer and chips.

  10. You could pick up the Sawzall now and save it for Father’s Day. Really. A Sawzall is an amazing tool!

  11. @Amy: Technically speaking, we in Maryland ARE in the South (below the Mason-Dixon Line).

    I think the stores here in MD more or less learned their lesson in December, when we got almost 3 feet of snow the weekend of the 19th. This time, the stores stocked up BEFORE the storm and had stuff ready to restock/scheduled another shipment of stuff the minute the weather cleared up between the storms. Still, some stores ran out of bread and milk. But there was PLENTY of toilet paper and soy/rice milk!

    @Mir: Hope you could get all the stuff you needed!
