Woohoo, it’s a Monday Woot-Off!

And here I thought Monday was going to be, you know, Mondayish. But no! There’s a Woot-Off going on, which means rotating deals over at Woot, Home.Woot, Kids.Woot, and Tools.Woot.

I just bought a dog food storage container set that I’ve been considering for months, because 1) the price was right and 2) that’s just how exciting my life is. (Plus, my dogs are spoiled rotten and I buy their expensive grain-free food 30 pounds at a time even though they’re little and it takes a long time to use up. That too.)

Enjoy the rest of your Woot-tastic day!

Back to the grind, back to the snacks

Posting has been lagging here a bit for a while, I know. I’m sorry. (Did I tell y’all I took a Real Job*? I did, and I’m still figuring out the rhythm of handling various freelance stuff on the side.) Last week I neglected you very badly, because I was on a business trip to actually spend some time at the company I’ve been working with all these months, and it felt like saying, “Oh hey, cool story about our product build… hang on, I need to see if there are any deals on groceries I need to post” would’ve been in poor taste.

But hey, now I’m home. In deep appreciation for all I do and how hard I work, my children treated me like a queen this morning as I tried to get back into the regular routine. “Moooooooom!” they called. “Where are my socks?” “Moooooooom!” another hollered. “Is my lunch ready?” Truly, they spoil me.

As I packed up lunches today I saw that we’re almost out of Popcorners, their new favorite crunchy lunch-bag snack. Last time I bought Kettle flavor (a little salty, a little sweet) and the kids (and I) really like it, but those weren’t available from Amazon on a great deal today, so instead I just placed an order for the 40-case of White Cheddar Popcorners. At just $12.22 shipped (I’m up to 20% off on my Subscribe & Save items this month), that works out to about $.31/bag, and that’s not even mentioning how you can’t put a price on happy teenagers.

*If you haven’t already checked out Happier, consider this your invitation. If a grumpy cynic like me loves it (I do!), you know it must be awesome.

Duvet set, anyone?

If you own a duvet, you know that covers can be crazy expensive (like, cost-more-than-the-duvet-itself expensive). Here’s a gray jacquard cotton set at Amazon for just $14.11 shipped for Full/Queen ($17.39 for King). It’s not the most exciting set I’ve ever seen, but it’s cute, and the price is certainly right.

If you had, say, a dog who just loves to jump up on your bed just before horking, that’s a great price for a spare cover. Not that I would know anything about that. (I’ve said too much….)

Wednesday is Kohlsday, once again

Happy Wednesday! Time to hit up Kohls for this week’s crazy savings.

The One-Day Sale (hey Kohls, I don’t think that means what you think it means…) is on, plus everyone gets free shipping on $50+ and $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. If you have a Kohls charge card, use coupon code SEPTMVC for free shipping on any size order and code SPLURGE30 for an additional 30% off your entire purchase. No Kohls card? You can still save an additional 15% with coupon code THANKS7427.

It’s a perfect time to stock up on home deals in addition to clothes, by the way. Lots of great bargains in today’s sale. (Am I the only one who spends an inordinate amount of time admiring the Fiestaware? Just me? Oh, never mind, then.)

Let’s hear it for the boys

Love a dapper dude? Me, too—and right now over at Jos. A. Bank pretty much the whole store is Buy 1, Get 2 Free. On top of that, they’re offering free shipping on every order, automatically.

This is a great time to stock up, if you’re so inclined. And while they don’t carry clothing for the ladies, they do have things like cedar shoe racks and shoe trees included in this deal, and I’m pretty sure those are unisex.

Here, kitty kitty kitty…

I offer this deal with the caveat that I am not a Cat Person and so I don’t know if there’s some obvious reason that a cat would dislike this fancy-pants litter box. That said, right now Amazon has this Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box for just $27.29 shipping in Frustration-Free Packaging (its lowest price ever).

Apparently you just roll the box to the side when it’s time to empty (note: make sure there’s not a cat inside), and the yucky stuff falls into a scoop for each removal and the clean litter is filtered out. Magic! Or as magical as removing cat waste from a box inside your house can get, I suppose, without going all the way to one of those robotic boxes that actually sweep through for you at the touch of a button.

This is the most words I’ve ever said/typed about cat excretion, ever. You’re welcome.

Friends & Family time at Puma

It turns out that Puma makes way more than sneakers, and right now is a great time to save with them—everything they sell is an additional 40% off when you use coupon code FFSAVINGS. That code works even on top of already-reduced sale prices, and shipping is free on all orders, too.

I’m digging their ballet flats. The only thing better than a super-cute casual shoe is one that’s super-cute but feels like a sneaker!

Homemade espresso, hold the high price tag

Me, I’m a simple gal with simple needs—while I enjoy espresso (when it magically appears in front of me), I’m fine with a regular coffeemaker that just brews a decent cup of joe in the morning. I’m lazy, I guess, plus I don’t really want to think too hard about my coffee before I’ve had coffee.

But! Every so often we visit my parents and my stepmom makes cappuccino every morning with her fancy-pants machine. And that stuff is amazing. And then my husband and I have conversations like this:
Me: We should buy a fancy machine!
Him: Or stay here forever.
Me: We should stay here forever!
Him: I was kidding.

(It’s magical. Obviously.)

Anyway, the thing is, today Home.Woot has a refurbished Breville Espresso Machine available for $230 + $5 shipping, and while this is crazy expensive for a coffeemaker, it’s actually crazy cheap for this particular one—the regular price at Amazon is $500 new. Check out the reviews there, though, because everyone loves this unit, and at this price, if you were considering upgrading, this might be the right time.

I’m actually tempted. I mean, it’s cheaper than moving back home again, right?

It’s the accent

Does viewing BBC Earth programs make you smarter? Probably. If nothing else, I contend that anything narrated by David Attenborough makes you feel smarter. So check out today’s Amazon Gold Box and click on the bonus deal for up to 79% off select titles. They’re educational and riveting.

And hey… maybe a good teacher gift for your favorite science educator…? Just a thought.
