Goooood morning! The sun is shining, the birds are singing— wait. Hang on. The sun is actually not shining, not yet, because it’s still dark out. Huh. Well, I guess this is just a case of having faith that it will be shining later. Look at me, I’m an optimist!
Maybe I should just stick to the deals.
Over at Children’s Place, they’ve marked the final Fall Clearance items down to just $4.99 apiece. Coupon code SORRY is still working for 20% off, too.
The only thing I can find that might be worth buying in today’s Amazon Friday Sale is this 2-pack of Barefoot Contessa Ultimate Chocolate Cake and Buttercream Frosting Mix. Now, even after Subscribe & Save it’s still $16.15 for two complete cakes, which feels like a lot for boxed mix, but I believe in Ina Garten’s ability to turn food into magic, so I just may bite on this one. (Get it, bite? Ha!) (And no, obviously this is not gluten-free. I would just buy it for my family and watching them eat it. And maybe cry a little.)
Also at Amazon, you can pre-order the entire Shrek Collection on Blu-ray for $45, if that’s your sort of thing. The price is already well below suggested retail, plus if it goes any lower before release, you’ll get the lower price. And you get a $4 on-demand video credit with purchase. Or if you give your kids Flintstones vitamins, check out that 3-pack; it’s just under $7 from Amazon (look in the “More Buying Choices” column).
Got reusable bottles? Buy.com has a 2-pack of stainless steel eco-canteens for just $10 shipped, today. (As much as I love our Siggs, I wish I’d held out for wide-mouthed bottles like these so that we could add ice easily.)
And finally, winter boots are up to 70% off today at 6pm.com, which is almost enough to make me wish I still lived in New England. Ahahahahaha! No, it doesn’t. Sorry.
This afternoon I will have Lee jeans winners for you, and who knows what else. Come on back!
