Are there people who don’t count down the week until Friday/Saturday? I would like to become one of those people. Just as soon as I catch up on my sleep.

Me, I still have to stumble bounce out of bed early to check out the Amazon Friday Sale, because I love you. If you’re low on chia seeds—or if you haven’t checked them out, yet—get a load of this Nutiva Organic 2-pack for just $10.20 when you buy via Subscribe and Save. Chia seeds are not only a superfood, they’re easy to add to everything—I put them in our smoothies, pancakes, baked goods, even rice and quinoa. Good stuff, and what a price. And don’t forget—it’s a new month, which means there’s a new crop of MP3 albums for just $5 each to check out!

Who needs Black Friday? Best Buy is doing a Shop Early, Save Big event today and tomorrow, and wow, if you have electronics on your list, check it out. (How does a $280 eMachines laptop grab you?) It’s unclear to me if those prices are going to be available online (everything is still listed as “coming soon” at 6:00 this morning…), but it may be worth watching.

It’s the big “Upgrade Your Gear” sale at EMS, with 30% off everything in the store. Plus, they’re running Power Deals every three hours, so you may snag an extra-deep discount on something awesome if you time it right. is singing my tune today, and in case you’re wondering, that tune is “Boots, boots, and more boots.” Heh.

I love this Burt’s Bees Travel Kit at for just $6 shipped—would make a great stocking stuffer!

Just about everything is 40% off at Lee Jeans this weekend, plus there’s free shipping on $30+. It’s a perfect time for me to get the husband some more jeans that actually fit him.

It’s Friends & Family time at The Limited so shop this weekend and use coupon code FRIEND to take 40% off of everything (even sale prices). They have some really cute jewelry and accessories on sale… might be a good way to knock out a few gifts.

That should keep you busy for a while, yes? I’ll be back later on. I think I owe you a contest winner. But first, the coffeepot is calling me to come visit again….


  1. I would have thought that Chia seeds were to refill all those lonely Chia Pets we got for Christmas last year 🙂

  2. And now I’ll be singing Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Pet all day. Thanks, Mir! 🙂

  3. The Burt’s Bees travel kit is sold out 🙁

  4. I called Best Buy’s flack and she said the prices WOULD be available online, in limited quantities of course. She was not able to find out what time the sale would start online, though.

  5. Best Buy laptop is online NOW. I just got one. No in-store pickup.

  6. I’ve never used Chia seed before. The directions say you have to soak them in water first. Do you do that, or do you just toss them in stuff?

  7. Can you do an “Amazon Subscribe and Save 101” post? Do you buy with S&S then cancel the repeats? I’m so nervous to take advantage of the discout because I’m worried I will forget and end up with new shipments of things that I forgot I purchased via S&S. Is it easy to manage or do you only buy things via S&S that you know you will want replenished? I’m I totally overthinking this?

  8. Sheryl: I never pre-soak.

    Kakaty: What a good idea! 😉 Here you go!

  9. Ha! This is why I love you, Mir!

  10. Did you see the sweater dresses at Limited?

  11. Any idea when Burt’s Bees will do their Bag O’ Goodies (probably not the official name) for $25 deal? that was such a hit last year.

  12. The Burt’s Bees deal at is back in stock! I got an email about it 10 minutes ago and jumped on it. You’re limited to only 2, though.

  13. cool, thanks for tip on burt!

  14. Oh Claire, I think they did the $20 grab bag already! Unless there is another one coming up that I am unaware of.
    I just got 2 of their bags in the mail about 2 weeks ago.
    Keep watching for sales of their stuff though. I seem to be seeing a lot of it this year.

  15. Guess what?! (Kind of, but not completely, off-topic…) We get an extra hour of sleep this weekend, so maybe you can get semi-caught up Saturday night/Sunday morning! 😀
