Save On Outerwear For Kids

Category : family, Featured, shopping

The private sale site ideeli has a lot of nice sales going on right now for kids’ coats, boots and other cold-weather gear. I realize that kids in Texas generally don’t need snowsuits, but if you’re looking for a nice jacket or boots, you can find them here. I particularly like the Pacific Trail coats (lots of cute girl colors) and the fleece-lined boys’ boots in their Backyard Boots sale. It’s not too cold now, but winter will be here before we know it!

Membership to ideeli is required to buy from these sales. If you’re not a member, you can sign up here for free.

Other private-sale goodies for kids (and adults) out there now include:

Phineas & Ferb PJs, backpacks & t-shirts from Totsy

Cute Sesame Street outfits for toddler girls from Totsy

Great Born fall shoes for women from Rue La La

Half Off Rich Brownies

Category : Featured, food, gifts, holiday

The deal site Juice in the City recently launched their “Everywhere” deals – deals that you can buy and redeem online, no matter where you live! Their newest Everywhere deal is one that I can personally vouch for: $15 for $30 in brownies from Ruth’s Brownie Kitchen. I had the good fortune to try some of these brownies a few weeks ago. If you are looking for a rich, fudgy brownie, this is definitely the one for you. I got the chocolate chunk, and they were fantastic. Needless to say, with two boys and a hungry husband, they didn’t last long around my house.

Other flavors offered by Ruth’s Brownie Kitchen include Original, Caramel Swirl, Toffee Crunch, Cranberry, plus many more. Don’t want brownies? Ruth also offers biscotti and cookies.

If you buy this deal, you’ll have until April 1, 2012 to use it. All Valrhona products are excluded from this deal. Shipping is additional. Only 2,000 of these deals are available, so check out the deal page now (look under Everywhere in the list of cities) and get yours! This would make a perfect holiday gift for a faraway relative.

This post is being sponsored by Juice in the City. Juice in the City’s mission is to support local businesses and women in the workforce. I received compensation for my story today, but all opinions are my own.
