While you’re Kondo-ing…

Everyone I know seems to be cleaning out their houses and closets with wild abandon. Does it spark joy? No? Out it goes! (Sorry, utility companies. Your bills did not spark any joy for me so I threw them away.)

I am not doing this, on account of 1) I am not that ambitious and 2) I am perfectly happy to live in the moderate level of clutter in my house. However, at the beginning of each year I do tend to take a fearless moral inventory of my sock and underwear drawers. Otherwise I keep stuff forever, and apparently you’re not supposed to do that.

Anyway! This brings me to all of the awesome clearance happening right now at American Eagle, and more specifically, the 10 panties for $30 section, which is pretty much the only place I get underwear anymore. (Ladies, if you haven’t bought from AE/Aerie before, be aware that their sizing tends more to the Juniors side of the spectrum. In other words, size up if you are a Woman Of A Certain Age, like me.) You must buy 10 pairs for the special pricing, but that’s not hard, and their underwear is pretty great.

Of course, there’s lots of other clearance, too, plus all of their swimwear is 40% off, and American Eagle uses real people as models and doesn’t airbrush, so I love them and I hope you do, too.

Epic (if slightly confused) clearance

Listen, I don’t know what’s going on over at Old Navy, exactly, and apparently neither do they. I mean, the site clearly states that you’ll get an automatic additional 40% off Clearance items in your cart, and yet those same items are marked “25% off taken at checkout” like maybe 25 is more than 40.

Well, they may be a little confused (or possibly bad at math?), but regardless: All Clearance is, indeed, another 40% off at checkout, and there’s a huge assortment of markdowns from which to choose. If Clearance doesn’t do it for you (seems impossible, but okay), everything else on the site is at least 25% off, too.

They’ve also got a coupon on the site you can print out and take to the store, but that requires putting on pants, soooo….

A little of this, a little of that

You know those stores you tend to walk into needing just one thing and $100 later you walk out…? No? Just me? Oh. Cool.

Uh, anyway, TJ Maxx/HomeGoods is definitely one of those places for me, so I was both happy and wary when they started their online store. But some days—like today!—they offer free shipping on any size order, and that makes it a lot easier to grab just a couple of things. Say, for the gift closet, or because you need socks. Whatever.

I’ll even make it easy for you: here’s their clearance items, sorted by price. There’s some nice little body/beauty product gems in there! And whatever you order, today it ships for free.

You’re gonna want it

Love LOFT? You’ll love it even more, today, because coupon code WANT will take 60% off already-reduced sale styles, plus every order gets free shipping. Deeply-discounted items are selling out fast, but there’s quite a lot of goodies from which to choose. Don’t wait if you’re wanting to shop, though.

Regular-price items are also half off, but I’d definitely start with the sale items.

Good news! We’re back just in time!

I have excellent news: After several weeks of (both metaphorically and literally) pulling my hair out, the emborkening of Want Not has been… uhhh… unborked. Three straight days of editing links by hand has led us to right now, where most everything is working again. (Not absolutely everything, but most things.) Hooray! Also, I am out of caffeine. Because I drank it all.

Anyway, now that things are functional again, I consider it a cosmic sign that today is the start of another round of coupons/deals at Kohls, because sure, they do this all the time, but still. (Let me have this moment, okay?)

Ready to save? Here you go:
Kohls charge card holders can use coupon code MITTENS30 for an extra 30% off, and code FREEMVCJAN for free shipping on any size order. Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, plus code SAVEBIG will take 20% off your $100+ order or 15% off, otherwise. Coupon code BABY10 will take $10 off eligible $30+ orders of baby/maternity items, and it stacks with percent off coupons.

As always, don’t forget to check out the clearance for your best deals. And if it’s holiday deals you’re after, don’t be alarmed by how little you see there—sometimes they forget to tag items as being on clearance. Here’s a handy link to Christmas clearance items for your browsing pleasure.

National Free Shipping Day? Okay!

Honestly, it’s not like I normally have a problem getting to the minimum shipping threshold at the Gap family of stores—between the shared cart between Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic and the sorts of clothes I’m most often buying for my family it’s not a problem—but I’m sure not going to turn down my chance to pick up a few last-minute items on sale and with free shipping. So hop to it, today (Friday, December 14th) only!

Use coupon code SHIPDAY across all their sites to ship any size order for free. Old Navy has $8 holiday sweatshirts, tons of markdowns, and coupon code MORE will take 20% off any order of 30% off $75+. Banana Republic is taking an automatic 40% off everything and an additional 10% off sweaters. And Gap has up to 50% off everything, automatically, a slew of “mystery deals,” plus coupon code GIFTS takes another 20% off.

Honestly, what are you waiting for?

Is it Kohls time again? You betcha

Hello! Did I run off and leave you last week? I apologize. I’m in a show right now and last week was tech and then opening weekend and, well, if you’re not a theater person the easiest way I can describe it is that the week before a show opens is like cramming for finals and having your first baby all rolled up in one. Exhilarating! Amazing! But also exhausting! So. If it makes you feel any better, I also haven’t fed my family for a week. (See? Doesn’t feel so bad now, right?)

Anyway! I’ve slept and I’m back. And so is Kohls, right on time with the last big sale where you can expect to get shipping in time for Christmas. Eeeeeverything is on sale, of course, with endless pages of doorbusters, $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend plus free shipping on $50+, and then you can stack up the coupons to make it even better.

Kohls charge card holders can use coupon code JOY30 for an extra 30% off, and code DECFREEMVC for free shipping on any size order; everyone can use code USAVEMORE for 15% off any order or 20% off your $100+ order, plus—and I think this may be a first—coupon code HOME15 takes an additional 15% off most kitchen/dining items and it stacks with other percentage off coupons. So if you’re wanting a big-ticket kitchen item and you’re a card holder, you can use both JOY30 and HOME15 together. (Do remember that 30% + 15% does not equal 45% off, because they’ll take the 30% first and then the 15% off the remainder, but still, savings are savings.) Be aware that the extra home savings are only good through 11:59 tonight (Monday, December 10th).

I’m done shopping but, uh, I should probably go poke around just to see if there’s anything I forgot, right? Right.

If they don’t make you laugh, check your pulse

Honestly, I came to tell you that Tillys is having a big ol’ flash sale today—30% off tons of items, with an additional 30-50% off items already on clearance, plus free shipping on every order. I mean, that alone is worthy of a post, especially if you have tweens or teens. But. Y’all. I have always purchased Vans from Tillys because they have great sales even on the limited edition and licensed lines, and my kids do appreciate cool shoes. Never in my wildest imaginings, though, did I know that this morning I would run across these Hulk Vans slip-ons. Please look at them for a minute. I promise they’ll make your day better.

My manchild needs those, right? Especially when you consider that Tillys has just about all sizes in stock, and should you even be able to find them elsewhere, they’re gonna cost a lot more than $30. (For reference: they don’t even have the size I need at Amazon, but the closest I can get would cost me $65. No thanks!)

No joke, I ordered them almost an hour ago and I’m still laughing.

Cyber Monday at Target

Is there ever a time I don’t need something at Target? Probably not. If you don’t need gifts, heck, the additional 15% off nearly everything today (not to mention the free shipping on any size order) is reason enough to stock up on all the regular stuff you’d be buying, anyway. There’s all kinds of sales and deals happening, too.

And if you are looking for a gift for that impossible-to-buy-for person, may I suggest a gem that’s sure to either delight or infuriate? Target has this Ravensburger 18,000-piece puzzle (NOT A TYPO) marked down to $60, with another 15% taken off of that, so it’s just $51 shipped. (For reference, your cheapest option at Amazon is $165.)

Or you could just buy Nyquil or whatever, I guess. But man, I am really intrigued by that puzzle.

It wouldn’t be Black Friday without shoe deals

How did I almost make it to lunchtime without a shoe deal roundup??? I’m slipping. Need shoes for the family? Check it out:

Speaking of slipping, I of course just bought my fast-food-working kid some SafeTstep kitchen shoes at Payless last week when they were 40% off, feeling very smug, but today the entire store is 50% off, plus you only need to spend $25+ to get free shipping.

While I’m a little miffed that 6pm.com isn’t doing their typical “new deal every hour” thing today, they did put out coupon code BLKFRIYAY for an additional 10% off their already crazy good deals, plus right now every order ships for free.

Famous Footwear is offering Buy One, Get One Half Off + 15% off your order and free shipping with coupon code BFEVENT18 today, so it’s a great time to stock up on whatever you’ve been eying.

And of course you don’t want to miss out over at Shoes.com, where they’ve got up to 75% off, already, and you can use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY for another 30% off almost everything. Shipping is free on any order.

Go forth and acquire fabulous kicks, my friends.
