Happy Friday the 13th! May this day bring you… ummm… many black cats. Friendly ones!

Let’s see if you can counteract any possible ill effects of the day with some great bargains….

Over in the Amazon Friday Sale, our regular parade of coffee and tea is interrupted by an actual deal on my favorite all-natural squeeze applesauces. Get 48 pouches of apple strawberry or regular apple for $25.50 shipped when you buy via Subscribe & Save. It’s true that my kids are really too old for this stuff, but they love it. And it means I don’t have to pack them a spoon in their lunches.

Should you have a Joss Whedon fan in your midst, don’t miss today’s Gold Box Deal—it’s the complete Firefly series on Blu-ray for just $23.49. And don’t forget to check out this month’s crop of MP3 albums for just $5 each (1500 of them this month!), if you haven’t already.

If you’re looking for a deal towards being greener (see, I listen when you talk!), check out this $40 Groupon to Eco Home Store for just $20. Could be a nice way to pick up a few items you’ve been thinking about.

I’m loving today’s deal at Kids.Woot—$5.99 for a Dunecraft Grow Your Own Garden Kit. Buy a few to offset the shipping (they’d be great gifts!), and let your kiddo cultivate his own garden.

See, Friday the 13th is nothing to be scared of. It’s just a regular day! And now I’m going to go on a trip to the art museum with 80 5th graders. I’m sure nothing could possibly go wrong.


  1. Thank you!! I was down to my last box of regular and my last box of strawberry applesauce!! My three year old lives on them. I can’t get him to go more eco friendly, he is three and freaking insane, but at least I can get them on sale and be more wallet friendly!!

  2. GoGo Squeeze are the BEST for lunchboxes!! That price is only 38 cents cheaper than what I can pay at the grocery store. My daughter likes plain or cinnamon, but not strawberry. I just opened the last package from Dec or January when this deal came around last time. I think I will just get them at Target so she can have variety.

  3. Art Museum + Fifth graders = naked people AKA nude statues
    Good luck.

  4. mmmm…. appleapple. it’s a staple here, and they are so fabulous in the diaper bag!

  5. Do I dare tell that my husband takes this applesauce with him when he’s cycling on long rides? Applesauce…not just for diaper bags and lunch boxes anymore! Thanks for the link, Mir.

  6. This month there are over 1,500 $5 album downloads!

  7. Tracy-me and my husband both cycle, and that’s a brilliant idea.

  8. i get a case a month of various go-go squeeze. for my 14 year old. he is trying to starve the rest of us out by eating everything in the house.

  9. Oh, thank you Mir! The deal on the Go-Go Squeeze is so much better than buying the 4-packs at Trader Joes… now I don’t have to be a meanie and tell my kids they only get squeezable apple sauce on special occasions!

  10. Lisa beat me to it! For the month of May, Amazon is offering 1,500 MP3 Albums for $5 each…
