Help us, Obi Wan Kenobi

Hi. Um, last week was a bad week. Sorry for disappearing on you. Today is Operation Find My Big Girl Panties, which is a lot less lewd than it sounds, and is basically about me getting back up and figuring out what’s next.

(Included in that, by the way, is some serious soul-searching about whether finding deals on everyday items is still a good and useful thing for me to be doing right now, or if I need to be throwing my energy into something else. I don’t have an answer, yet.)

While we all continue trying to act normal (just me? okay, cool, that’s fine), I’m trying to get geared up for Black Friday and—of course—Big Prize Week, because that’s been planned for forever and it’s almost here. So all of that is still happening, don’t worry.

This is also happening: Usually reserved for the week before Christmas, for some reason Amazon has dropped the price of the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon to $95.99, already. This is normally $150, or around $130 on sale, so if you have a kid (or a spouse; no judgment) who’s dying to receive this 1,329-piece set, grab it now.

And then if you can figure out how to get some Jedi forces to show up in real life, I’d be down with that, too.


  1. Not just you!! Hang in there.

  2. Definitely not just you.

  3. And like that… it was gone. What, not even an hour?

    And I have all the feels with you, Mir. ❤️

  4. Shhh, pretty one. As soon as I A) hit the lottery; and B) get hubby on board, I have a nice 28-acre shoreline property picked out in Canada. We’ll start a commune!

  5. I told sweetie I was worried about you and he said, “Wait, who is this?” 😆
    Do what you gotta do. Use your voice where it makes the most sense. ❤️

  6. Jus’ so ya know — your pretty self makes a valuable difference to many eyes here, both penny-wise and with wit, and most importantly with smiles.

    • I couldn’t have said it better than MsMarm just did.

  7. Amazon looks all 1993 today, for a couple of hours at least. :-/

  8. Don’t leave us Mir! Don’t go! You make my life better, even if it’s from a far, and anonymously. 🙂
