Friday comes in on damp doggie feet

(At least, damp doggie feet are what I get on Friday morning when I’m too tired to remember to dry the dog off after her morning pit stop outside. Oops.)

The end of the month is here! (How on earth did that happen??) That means today is probably the last day for the current batch of Manager’s Specials on groceries at Amazon, so it’s worth taking a look if you have some time. I’ll confess I not only loaded up on chocolate for end-of-year teacher gifts, but I bought a bunch of cocoa for next Christmas, too. Bear in mind that Amazon grocery specials sometimes have very close expiration dates, but every time I’ve gotten something that’s only good for a couple of months and I’ve spoken with customer service about it, they’ve refunded my money. So—to my mind, anyway—it’s a low-risk situation. And often the reduced foods are perfectly fresh with expirations out a year or more.

Also at Amazon, don’t forget that today is the last day to snag a slew of discounted magazine subscriptions where the second year is free, including many options that would make lovely Mother’s Day gifts. I’m just sayin’.

You can Spring Into Savings at Old Navy through the weekend; they’re offering an additional 30% off “select seasonal styles” with coupon code ONBIG30. I threw a bunch of stuff into my cart to check and it seemed to work on everything, so I’m not sure what the select-ness of it means. I just know I’m a fool for sales at Old Navy.

Today’s deals at include up to 70% off on Born shoes, and I love my Borns with a passion that borders on abnormal. And you know, Borns used to all be ugly (but comfy); now they’re actually cute, too!

Threadless isn’t having a sale, but they just started accepting Paypal and released some coupon codes in celebration. Use code YayPal5 for $5 off your $30+ order, or use code YayPal10 for $10 off your $50+ order! The coupon is valid through Monday, May 3rd.

In need of maternity clothing? Through Monday you can save an extra 10% on sale items at Pea in the Pod, Motherhood Maternity, or Destination Maternity, automatically.

Here’s hoping your Friday is full of excellent things, and that all your paws are dry. Uh, you know what I mean.


  1. Love Borns. Just ordered 2 pair!

  2. Thanks to your tips, Mir, I took care of my Mother’s Day gifts over the past 2 days: sale and free shipping on Target Daily Deal, and great deal on magazine subscription today at Amazon. THANK YOU for simplifying my life 🙂

  3. Cool, just ordered myself Crochet Today and it gave me an excuse to get the tripod I’ve been wanting for my Flip camera – needed to add something for free shipping!

  4. I just made an order at Old Navy–the 30% off is just on Spring Specials, clearly marked in the small print–my non-spring special items did not come up discounted.

  5. Thanks for the awesome tips. I too hate to clean wet dogs off. I have more than just the darn paw to clean. since all 3 of my dogs are low riders.

    I will definately check out the sale of the borns. I have a pair and they are awesome.

  6. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I just put on my Born Vals this morning and I thought… Hmm, I’ve had these for several years. I wonder if they even make them anymore. Just ordered a fresh pair for when they finally bite the dust!

  7. Boy Mir I have to stop coming here…I keep spending money! Ha! But I had a credit coming back from another pair of shoes that I returned to shoebuy so I really needed to replace the pair I returned.
