Prime Day, all day (tomorrow, too)

Oh my goodness, I’ve been so busy I almost forgot all about Prime Day! It means that today and tomorrow the Amazon Gold Box is stuffed full to bursting with crazy deals exclusively available to Prime members.

The goodies are too numerous to count (plus new ones are popping up all the time), but I’ve already gone and snagged a few daily deals. Some of you who have given me a hard time about my addiction to cleaning wipes (ha!) should be pleased to know I’ve finally switched to these Green Works compostable wipes, which are available at an all-time-low price today of $8.60/shipped (that’s a nickel a wipe!). Also I know Licorice will still spit out her meds, but whatever, I grabbed these Greenies pill pockets for $10.84 (half off). (In case you’re wondering, Duncan doesn’t require pill pockets. Duncan eats everything. Duncan will eat rocks if you let him. Duncan is cute, but not very smart.)

Anyway, deals deals deals, you know the drill. Happy hunting!

I’m humming it right now

Hello! I have been doing Real Life Thingsā„¢ and have been neglecting you. I am sorry.

To make it up to you, I got you a Woot-Off (complete with catchy theme song, which you should definitely listen to on the site if you haven’t before, because it’s nifty)! I mean, maybe they’re doing it for their 15th birthday, but whatever. Details.

It’s not the entire site, but I’m seeing some great deals on Clearance.Woot, Gourmet.Woot, and Shirt.Woot. You know the drill: deals rotate through, lasting as long as half an hour or going as quickly as just a minute or two. You have to pay attention and cross your fingers.

Don’t forget that if you have Amazon Prime, logging in with your account gets you free shipping on every Woot purchase!

If you wanna get your geeky on

Dangit, I knew something was up with that last sale (but oh man, did giant boxes arrive here for days? yep!), but it’s finally official: ThinkGeek is shutting its doors. Now, the good news is that you’ll still be able to find some of their stuff at GameStop, but still. That only covers various gaming and TV/movie fandom stuff, I bet. I’m sad about this. But also coupon code MOVINGDAY takes 50% off of everything (even stuff already on sale), so that’s helping a little. Items are selling out fast, but who knows—you might find something you need. (Shipping is free on $50+ after coupon.)

But if you just need some cool t-shirts and accessories, maybe head on over to Threadless, instead. Today they’ve got all their t-shirts marked down to $11.99, plus they’re offering up to half off everything else. And on top of that, you can sign up for a 25% off coupon if you’re new, or you might get a pop-up to spin the wheel of savings to get a coupon code or free shipping! (Percent off coupons can’t be used to stack savings, unfortunately.)

Anyway, I just needed to share that with my fellow nerds. (It’s not too early to start Christmas shopping, right? Asking for a friend. Who is me.)

Get all your beauty bits

Ooooh, what’s better than free shipping on every order at Ulta? Free shipping at Ulta and lots of deals and a coupon code!

Shop today and code 702445 will take an additional $3.50 off your qualifying purchase of $15+.

This is the perfect time to pick up all those little face masques and such for stocking stuffers or girls’ night. (Um, hopefully my kid isn’t reading this post.) Or splurge on some larger items. Whatever. I’m sure you’ll figure it out.

It’s Kohls time again

Were you patiently waiting for the next round of Kohls promos? You never have to wait for long, but today it doesn’t matter because it’s time.

If you have a Kohls charge card, use coupon code FAMILY30 for an additional 30% off your order, plus coupon code JUNEMVCFREE gives you free shipping on any size order.

No card? That’s okay—you can use code SAVINGS for 15% off any order, or 20% off your $100+ order. Plus, everyone gets $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 spent, and you can stack any of these department-specific coupons with a percent-off coupon, too:

  • INTIMATES10 takes $10 off your qualifying $40+ Warner’s/Olga purchase,
  • MYSTYLE takes $10 off your qualifying $50+ Women’s/Juniors purchase,
  • and DAD10 takes $10 off your qualifying $50+ Father’s Day gift purchase (and won’t it be fascinating to see what they consider appropriate gifts for his special day).

Combine all that with their usual sales/deals and some today-only Doorbusters, and you’ve got every reason to head on over there.

I almost forgot how to shop for new stuff

I was so busy with Poshmark [if you haven’t signed up yet, code wantnotdotnet gives us both $10 toward a purchase for a limited time!], I nearly forgot how to shop regular stores. A tragedy! But it’s okay, because today LOFT is having a giant sale and it turns out it’s just like riding a bike—I quickly remembered how to stack up all the savings. Phew!

So they’ve got everything on sale right now, with 60% off the hot summer styles, and an additional 40% coming off sale/clearance items in your cart when you apply code CYBER. And you can stack code CYBERVIP on top of that to save another 10%, too! Shipping is free on every order today and tomorrow.

There’s plenty of Petite/Plus/Maternity options, too, if you feel like stores never have your size. (Of course I’m the moron who’s scanning through and falls in love with something only to discover that it’s a Maternity item. Oops.)

Cheap eyeglasses just got cheaper

It was many, many moons ago when I first ordered a whole mess of glasses in the name of science and then came back here and told you about them. (11 years ago! Time sure does fly when you are old and tired, I tell you what.) Since then, Zenni Optical has only gotten better—more options, faster shipping, great customer service (I had a pair with an issue and they replaced it for me), and even the occasional coupon code. My entire family wears glasses from Zenni. (They now have a Pride collection with 100% of proceeds from those frame sales going to the It Gets Better Project, which really sealed the deal for me.)

Anyway! Whether you need spares, some new sunglasses, readers—oh, and do upgrade to the Blue Blockers for your computer glasses (I just got mine a few months ago and I love them)—anything at all in glasses-land, you will love them. And right now, you can save 20% with coupon code FRIENDS20.

I don’t need new glasses, but with the 20% off… well… I’m sure I can find something….

You can’t have too many sneakers

The last time Keds had a big sale, I got a killer deal on some rose gold Kate Spade sneakers, and despite the fact that my fashionable adult daughter says they are “so extra,” I love them unapologetically. (Oh, they’re still available, though more than they were when I got ’em. Here they are.) I’ve been wearing Keds longer than she’s been alive, so she can hush.

Anyway, there’s plenty of options on sale, perfect for outfitting rapidly-growing children and picking up a fun little pair of kicks for yourself. Shipping is free, and if you use coupon code 20FORME you’ll get another 20% off your order, even on sale items.

There’s will always be a place in my heart for plain white Keds, but their new collaborations with Rifle Paper and Kate Spade are ah-maze-ing. Go take a look.

We’ve all got trash

Okay; this isn’t exactly an exciting deal, but it’s a decent deal, nonetheless. Right now Amazon has their house brand kitchen trash bags marked at $20.99 for a 200-pack, which is pretty good already—especially when you’ll save another 5% or 15% if you buy them on Subscribe & Save. But if you’re logged in, you should see a clippable 50% off coupon, and remember that those get deducted before your S&S discount.

I’ve already got my 5+ items for the month, so for me it ended up being $7.34. That’s under $.04/bag! And they’re averaging a 4.4 star rating with over 1,500 reviews. So: not exciting, but a darn good deal.

I wish there was Miracle-Gro for other stuff

Hello! I hope you had a pleasant weekend. Mine was pretty good, and then this morning my fridge died, so I have been spending hours doing things like calling repair places and packing coolers with all the food we just bought instead of, oh, I don’t know, working. So that’s fun. Not that I’m bitter, or anything.

But now someone is coming in a few hours and I can concentrate on other things. Like, say, learning that apparently I am supposed to be fertilizing the trees and shrubs in front of our house. I thought that the dogs were taking care of that for me, but apparently not. Anyway! Right now Amazon has 12-packs of Miracle-Gro fertilizer spikes for trees & shrubs available for $5.40 shipped, so that seems pretty awesome, given that they normally cost about a buck a spike. This seems like an excellent way for me to pretend I’m taking care of our “landscaping” (I feel like the quotation marks are necessary because none of it is planned…) without doing much in the way of work.

Still, I think the dogs should pay for them.
