Head on over to Kohls

It’s time to get yourself over to Kohls! Between the markdowns, the coupons, and $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, they’re practically paying you to shop.

If you have a Kohls charge card (and of course you do, because the savings are worth it), you can use coupon code FAVORITE30 for 30% off your order, plus code JANMVCFREE will give you free shipping on any size order. Everyone can use coupon code BABY10 for an extra $10 off your $50+ qualifying baby items purchase, and coupon code FROST takes 15% off any order or 20% off your $100+ order.

There’s tons of Bonus Buys and plenty of items in the Clearance section, too. Deals galore!

A great day at Gap

Been waiting for a great big Gap sale? Today’s the day! Take an additional 50% off items already marked down by applying coupon code MORE. There’s plenty of deals to be had, particularly on kid/baby stuff (since it’s cheaper to begin with).

Shipping is free on your $50+ (after coupon) order, or a flat $7, otherwise. Personally, when I’m shopping here and/or at Old Navy (don’t forget there’s a shared cart there), I go redeem some Discover Cashback for a gift card and aim riiiight for the $50 mark. But you do you.

More clearanced clearance

Had your eye on something at Old Navy? Today’s the day to buy—for one day only (today, January 8th), you can use coupon code DEAL for an extra 40% off clearance items. Some of the clearance is already up to 75% off, so this can add up to crazy good savings.

Buy online and pick up in the store for free, or get to $50+ for free shipping (otherwise shipping is a flat $7 fee).

The best sale on (some of) the best kicks

You thought all the sales were over, but no! Actually right now they’re doing the end-of-season clearance at Keds, and that means markdowns galore, plus you’ll save an extra 20% and get free shipping when you apply coupon code EXTRA20.

I mean, maybe you don’t like Keds. Maybe you’re dead on the inside. I don’t judge (much). But they truly have something for everyone, and although I already have several pairs, my ordering finger is getting itchy at these prices….

Love it at Lands’ End

Lately Lands’ End has been pretty generous with the 50%-off-full-price-items codes, but you still have to get to $50 or $75 (after coupon!) for free shipping. That’s why today is so awesome—you can not only use coupon code COCOA for 50% off full-price items, you’ll also get free shipping on any size order! Perfect if there’s just one or two things you’ve had your eye on.

Buying something already on sale? The code will give you free shipping, at least, even though it won’t give you an additional discount. Or if you’d rather get the discount and aren’t worried about paying for shipping, coupon code EARLY50 takes half off sale items.

I don’t own a single thing from Lands’ End that didn’t basically last forever (when we lived up north I always bought my kids’ snow gear there and passed it down), so I’m all over this one.

Building kits for the big kids

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but: I sort of miss the days when every birthday and holiday gift was LEGO. Now that my kids are too grown up for all that, I kinda miss it, is all.

If you’ve got big(ger) kids or even adults who love to build, Amazon’s just done a bunch of price drops on Robotime kits. It’s not LEGO, but it looks really cool.

This treasure box is down to under $15 (49% off).
This robot music box is down to under $20 (41% off).
And this amazing train locomotive is down to around $25 (49% off).

Bonus: the parts probably won’t hurt nearly as much as LEGO when you step on ’em.

Because they’re all about the shirts

Will I pass up an opportunity to get a great deal on quirky t-shirts for my (grown) kids? No, I will not. Which is why I’m over on the GameStop site right now combing through their 2 for $10 deal shirts, because the holidays are coming, and silly t-shirts are part of the deal.

Items are selling out fast—I already missed my chance to get cheap Dunder-Mifflin shirts, *sob*—but there’s plenty from which to choose. Happy hunting!

I’m not saying you should

… I’m just happening to mention that if you’re interested in acquiring Monopoly: Cheaters Edition, right now it’s marked down to just $10.07 at Amazon, and it’s also offering me an additional coupon for $2.01 more off (I really appreciate that extra penny, Amazon, thanks!), too. (I suspect that’s a Prime thing.) (The coupon, not the extra penny.) The ratings on it are overwhelmingly favorable.

Anyway, I don’t know that I’ve played Monopoly since my kids were little, but for about $8 and with some shenanigans thrown in, I may have to get back to it.

No need to thank me

It’s finally October, which means the holidays are—believe it or not—right around the corner, which means you will surely be attending a party with a White Elephant gift exchange in the next few months. The challenge there is always to bring the most ridiculous item, yes? I’ve got you.

Did you know that blindfolded Twister was a thing? Apparently it is, and today it’s half price at Amazon. Your ridiculous-item-for-under-$10 prayers have been answered, probably before you even knew you had them. You’re welcome!

If you want actual games rather than just ridiculousness, there’s a bunch of other Hasbro game markdowns happening over there. Connect Four is $5.50, Trouble is $7, Retro Battleship (man, I loved that game) is $11, Cheaters Edition Monopoly (I’m intrigued) is $10, and more. Time to stock up for rainy/snowy/sick days!

I’ll take free shipping for… um, free

I cannot tell a lie: When TJ Maxx first opened up a storefront online, I wasn’t thrilled. What could possibly rival the endcaps in the store itself? What about that time I found a winter coat missing a button that had been marked down multiple times, and I ended up getting it for $3? Online couldn’t compare.

Well, eventually their online clearance caught up—maybe not quite to the $3 winter coat level, but you know—and I began quietly stalking them. And then every now and then they offer free shipping, and then it’s on. Like today! That’s right, today (Tuesday, September 17th) only, get automatic free shipping on any size order at TJ Maxx online. There’s tons of clearance. Um, maybe a little less since I went shopping just now. But hey, did I knock out some Christmas gifts? I sure did. (Listen, I’m not passing up $50 shoes for my kid for $15, or Under Armour gear at about two-thirds off retail.)

Did I also put a wide variety of dog-decorated bed linens into my cart before reminding myself that even if a pair of pillowcases is only $5, that doesn’t mean I have to buy them? Maybe.
