Flip, flop, walk in comfort (cheaper)

Love Okabashi flip-flops? Now’s the time to save big—take 40% off any style with coupon code APR40OFF, plus get free shipping with stackable code EARTH422!

Okabashis are BPA-free, dishwasher-safe, antimicrobial, and have good arch support (unlike most flip-flops at this price point). With the additional savings, it’s a good time to either try them out or add to your collection.

Woot up your Tuesday

We are on day 3 (4? I’m losing track) of the super-high-fever-with-no-other-symptoms bug here at Casa Mir, which means I am a little bit climbing the walls and a lot very tired and grumpy. Thank goodness there’s a Woot-Off going on to distract me! They’re wooting off all day long at Woot, Home.Woot, Sport.Woot, Tools.Woot, Kids.Woot, and even Wine.Woot.

This is traditionally a day of great deals, if you have the patience and fortitude to keep checking in. Some of my favorite things have come from various Woot stores on Woot-Off days. Just be quick like a bunny, because the good stuff sells out fast.

Cyber Spring at LOFT

Today’s the day to clean up over at LOFT—you can use coupon code CYBER50 to take 50% off of just about everything, as well as get free shipping on any size order.

It works on sale/clearance items, too, so this is the best time to really clean up. (Though, remember my question about good t-shirts from last week or the week before? I think I may just get some t-shirts. We’ll see.)

Always have a spare bed

In the market for a quick spare bed for home, or a more comfortable way to camp? For some reason right now this queen-sized Coleman Quickbed is down to $16.99 at Amazon right now—its lowest price ever. (The twin is down to $14.99, which is a decent price, but the full and king versions aren’t reduced.)

Reviews are mixed, but at this price, it’s probably worth a shot.

I’m coffee-conflicted

On the one hand, I own a

On the other hand, my parents have an espresso machine that's super-fancy and makes really, really good coffee. I have no idea what it cost (I am afraid to ask), but I do enjoy visiting them a whole lot. (Not just for the cappuccinos. But it doesn’t hurt.)

And then on the third hand (you mutant, you, with your third hand), today’s Home.Woot offering is a reconditioned Saeco Intellia Automatic Espresso Machine for $400, which I dismissed as insane until I saw that this machine retails for around $1200 new, at which point $400 seemed like a real bargain.

Long story not much shorter: I’m afraid I can’t justify buying one of these, but if you’re in the market, apparently it’s a really good deal. Please invite me over for cappuccino after you get it. (I’ll bring cookies!)

Love the savings at LOFT

Been waiting for some fantastic discounts over at LOFT? Today’s a good day to check ‘em out—in addition to their 40% off everything promotion this week with code MUSTSHOP, today only they’re offering a Flash Sale on sweaters. You’ll save 50%, automatically, no coupon needed.

I love LOFT so much, I forgive them for offering a “size type” option that doesn’t include Maternity, so that when I say I want Regular sizes I am flooded with pregnant ladies. (But if they ever fix that, I promise it’s because I complained. Often.)

Fancy a spot of tea?

If you’re a hardcore tea lover, chances are you’ve already discovered Teavana for everything you need to brew that perfect cup of gourmet tea. The prices are commensurate with the product quality, though, so if you’re like me, you can’t really afford to shop there all that often.

Today would be a good day to check them out, though, because right now you can use coupon code SLICK25 for $25 off your $60+ order, plus free shipping and a free tea sample. Replenish your stash, pick up some gifts, get that fancy tea kettle or tea set you’ve been eyeing… whatever, just enjoy the savings.

For quick clean-ups

I try to stay fairly eco-friendly, earth-conscious, tree-huggy, etc., and when I’m doing a lot of cleaning, yep, I get out the vinegar and the washable mops and cloths and all of that, sure. But sometimes you just need to do a quick clean-up, or sometimes you want to turn your children into slave labor make it easy for the kids to pitch in, and that’s when I confess I really like Lysol wipes. (I will go hug an extra tree, now that I’ve admitted this.) Right now Amazon has this 240-wipe jumbo three-pack of Lysol wipes for just $9.97 with an available 15% off coupon, plus if you buy via Subscribe & Save you’ll get free shipping and save even more. Your total will come to $7.48 with the coupon and 5% S&S discount, or even less if you’ve hit your 5+ monthly subscriptions.

If you don’t need ‘em for you, these are great for donations, too—your local schools and shelters will happily take them. At this price, why not?

Where did Wednesday go??

I seem to be missing a day from this week. Has anyone seen it…?

Oh, well. Hey, we can do Kohlsday just as easily on Thursday, right? Right.

There’s plenty of Bonus Buys to be had, plus everyone gets automatic free shipping on $75+ and earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. Kohls charge card holders can also use code SAVEBIG30 for an additional 30% off, plus code SHIPPINGMVC will ship any size order for free. No Kohls card? You can still use code CELEBRATE for an additional 15% off.

I am on the hunt for a new go-to plain t-shirt, if anyone has any suggestions. I used to love the Old Navy Perfect Tee, but they changed it. Then I started buying the Juniors So brand ones at Kohls (I know; I should not be buying Juniors, and for my trouble I had to buy a large rather than a small, but whatever…), but then they changed those, too. I see the Apt. 9 plain Ts are on sale at Kohls now… anyone have any experience with them? I might give ‘em a whirl.

Work out, stay dry

Have guys who like those athletic shirts that are supposed to wick away perspiration? I like those shirts, too, but I sure don’t want to pay full price for ‘em. Right now Amazon has two colors of these Champion Men’s Powerflex Core Tees for just $7.67 apiece, in sizes from small all the way up to XX-large.

That’s only a couple bucks more than it’d cost me to root out some used ones at Goodwill. I don’t know if this is a discontinued style or what, but Champion is a great brand and I like that they only do a tiny logo rather than splashing their name across everything.
