We’ve been having a candy war at work. It’s the Red Vines people vs. the Twizzlers folk (and by the way, those Red Vine diehards are sooo wrong). Yeah, we may have been a little bored this week. I keep everyone entertained with my footwear though. They swear I never wear the same pair of shoes twice, and they’re almost right. Tomorrow, I shall wow them with an ode to my favorite candy, Skittles, when I taste the rainbow in these Pierre Hardy sandals, which I scored for 30% off at StyleBop.com. Deal ends soon.
Gird your loins, shoppers, because I have some earth-shaking news for you. Everybody knows there’s nothing better than a sale, except for one thing, and that is when sale is on sale. This is the perfect storm of bargains, and it’s happening now at Ralph Lauren. So shop your preppy little heart out, while you can get pieces like these Polo dress shirts for up to 65% off when you take an extra 40% off already-reduced prices. Deal expires: 8/1.
My kids have been away at Grandma’s house all summer. I have not felt the least bit guilty about this - well, maybe just a little. I have enjoyed my alone time, but I also feel a little sad when I realize that I’ve missed out on this entire summer in their lives. Luckily, my mom is a shutterbug like no other, so she will have tons and tons of photos to show me, so I’ll be able to catch up on all the fun they had. She’ll be glad to know she can save 41% off getting all her prints developed at Walgreens with code JULPRINTS41. Deal ends: 7/30.
The kids are not getting back until just in time for school starting. They’ve been goofing off all summer - swimming, boating, fishing, making s’mores, and of course, chasing Pokemon. They’re probably going to need a little extra review to get them up to speed in remembering everything they learned last year so they can succeed in the new school year. Of course, they’re not going to want to study during the last few days of summer, but with these Fairy Tales Problem Solving STEM kits, which I got for 20% off and with free shipping from Lakeshore Learning by using code BTS2016, they won’t realize that they’re actually learning while they play. Deal ends: 9/4.
My eldest is starting college soon, and he’s majoring in computer programming. He’s going to need lots of textbooks, many of which will be so expensive it’s like paying a second tuition. Luckily though, I can get some titles, like The Go Programming Language, for 35% off at InformIt by using code POP35. Deal expires: 12/31.
