NEW LOWEST PRICE: 6-pack of LED 60 watt equivalent light bulbs for $19.19 ($3.20 per LED bulb)




They are temporarily out of stock, probably because of the price drop, but you can still order them and lock in the price, and they will ship in a few days when they restock.

LEDs are much more efficient that incandescent bulbs and don't contain the mercury that you'll find in CFLs (though they do contain lead, please be aware).  They also look like normal light bulbs and not spiral noodles from outer space.  These bulbs come with a limited 3-year warranty.  Because they last so long and run so efficiently, you will save money on electricity, buying new bulbs and will not have to change the bulbs every few weeks.  We are almost an entirely LED-light-bulb-run household now.

  • Replaces standard incandescent 60-watt light bulb
  • Non-dimmable 
  • Looks like a traditional A19 bulb
  • Lifespan: 18.3 years
  • Operating costs per year: $1.03
  • Lifetime savings: $678.00

LOWEST PRICE: 4M Potato Clock (yes, a clock that is powered by potatoes) for $4.99. Great gift for kids interested in science or kids whom you WISH were interested in science!


A clock that runs on potatoes?

If you've got a kid who is a science enthusiast (or better yet, a kid who is completely science-phobic), 4M has these kits for kids, many for under $10.00 that will open up science concepts to him/her in fun ways.

The 4M Potato Clock kit is just $4.99, the lowest recorded Amazon price on this item.  It got 4 out of 5 stars over 147 customer reviews.  And yes, it is an actual clock that runs on potatoes. No batteries needed, but you will need two potatoes.  

From reading the reviews, a small minority of purchasers were disappointed that the clock was not of high quality.  Keep in mind that you are buying this kit to illustrate a principle (turning a potato into a battery), not to obtain a great clock.

It's an Amazon Add-On item, which means that it ships for free with a $25 minimum order if you are an Amazon Prime member (and its price of $4.99 counts towards that $25), or it ships for free with a $35 minimum order if you're not a Prime member.  If you like, you can order multiples of this item in order to help get you towards your $25 or $35 goal.

Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day, 9/29/15: up to 75% off select rings

Today, 9/29/15 only (sorry for posting so late), Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day is up to 75% off wedding and anniversary rings.

I found some beautiful low-priced choices, both in the 14-kt. gold and in the sterling silver variety.  I already have a gold and diamond anniversary band but I fell in love with one of the lower-priced sterling silver ones with blue diamonds (see below), so I bought it!  These all come with free returns, so if you (or your wife, girlfriend, sigoth, etc.) don't like the ring when it arrives, you can always return it on Amazon.

My four favorite value finds:

 Sterling Silver Pave Diamond Wedding Anniversary Ring for $39.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping ad free returns. If a gold and diamond band is not in the budget right now, this is a great, affordable alternative, and the design on this one is lovely.  I have one just like this for traveling (except I paid about $20 more).   This ring normally goes for (approximately) $49.99.


Sterling Silver Blue and White Diamond Anniversary Ring (1/10 cttw, I-J Color, I2-I3 Clarity) for $54.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping ad free returns.  I bought this one!  I love the color and very elegant design, and for the price, it was quite a deal.  This ring normally goes for (approximately) $74.99.


14K White Gold 2mm Comfort-Fit Diamond Wedding Band (1/10 cttw, G-H Color, SI1-SI2 Clarity) for $209.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping ad free returns.  Beautiful, modern design.


14k White Gold-and-Diamond "Stackable" Band for $224.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping ad free returns. This ring normally goes for (approximately) $299.99.

Shop around, but remember that these discounts are good today (Tuesday, 9/29/15) only.

EXPIRED! PRICE DROP: 500-count Trellis Earth Heavyweight Bioplastic Cutlery for $8.87 on Amazon (beats out Costco on disposable cutlery by a mile!)


UPDATE:  Amazon has pulled the 50% coupon.  :(

Amazon has got a very high-value 50% off coupon on this box of 500-count Trellis Earth Heavyweight Bioplastic Combo (Forks/Knives/Spoons) Cutlery, priced at $17.75 - 50% coupon = $8.87 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  That's slightly less than 2 cents per piece of cutlery.  It got 4.4 out of 5 stars over 7 customer reviews.

(FYI, I was able to "clip" the coupon more than once but I had to go through a separate order each time. If I just added three sets of cutlery to my account in one order, the 50% coupon was applied to only one set.  So you can stock up at this price, but you need to purchase each set in a new order.  YMMV.)
  • Heavyweight cutlery is both strong and functional
  • Full size cutlery - 6" length
  • Quantity: 500 count consisting of 250 forks-100 knives-150 spoons
  • Trellis Earth Bioplastic - polymerized plant starch
  • Heat tolerance up to 240F, microwave-safe, non-compostable
Now, I might not be the greenest person in the world, but I can spot a FANTASTIC deal when I see it.  I normally buy the Costco 360-pack of disposable flatware for $12.99 (see immediately below), but this is a far superior deal moneywise, whether you are into recycling or not.

Amazon Fire for $49.99....Approaching release date at the end of the month....order now!

If you haven't pre-ordered your Amazon Fire tablet for $49.99 yet, I urge you to do so before the release on 9/30/15.  Why?  Because there are rumblings out in the news media that Amazon might actually be selling the Fire below cost, and if that's the case, this pricing might not be sustainable for long. 

There have been $50 tablets out there since the iPad's invention, but let's face it: they were crummy, slow, cheap, do-nothing tablets. You got what you paid for.

A week ago, Amazon released an brand new Fire for $49.99 shipped.  And it looks like you are going to get a LOT more than you pay for. 

I can't seem to find a downside to this deal. "The breakthrough price of Fire combined with Amazon’s durable engineering opens up many new ways for you to upgrade your rooms: in the kitchen as a digital cookbook or to watch your favorite cooking show, in the TV room as an entertainment controller, in the bedroom to watch a movie or check the weather before you get dressed, and in your car for backseat entertainment."

It's got 8 GB of storage but (unlike most other tablets) you can expand the storage by adding a 16, 32 or 128 GB memory card, as needed, which is a brilliant feature (why can't I do that on my iPad?).

My husband and I each own iPads, but we jumped on the train and pre-ordered a $49.99 Fire.   There is basically nothing that our iPads can do that the Fire can't do, at least not from what I'm reading. I was concerned about being able to run MS Office apps on the Fire, but after a little research, I discovered that I could run an app called Office Suite Professional 8 (free!), which allows me to us to create, open and edit documents, powerpoint slideshows and spreadsheets completely compatible with MS Office (same extensions).   You can also watch movies, take pictures, play games, Skype, get to the Internet, check your email, log into social sites, listen to music, read e-books, etc. on the Fire.  If you drop it, spill coffee on it, or it gets stolen or lost, it's a $50 Fire, not a $500 iPad.   (We spend more than that on a good dinner out.)

I think this is a terrific order, so don't let it pass you by, especially before holiday season.

And, to ramp things up, if you buy five Fires, you'll get a sixth one free, with promo code FIRE6PACK, which lowers the price to $41.66 per Fire.  Excellent for gift giving in the holiday season, but also fabulous if you want to get together with a few friends to lower your cost by a solid 17%.

Here are the official whutchugets:
  • Beautiful 7" IPS display (171 ppi / 1024 x 600) and fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processorRear and front-facing cameras.
  • All-new Amazon Underground, a one-of-a-kind app store experience where over $10,000 in apps, games and even in-app items are actually free - including extra lives, unlocked levels, unlimited add-on packs and more
  • Enjoy more than 38 million movies, TV shows, songs, books, apps and games
  • 8 GB of internal storage. Free unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content and photos taken with Fire devices. Add a microSD card for up to 128 GB of additional storage.
  • Updated user interface - Fire OS 5 designed for quick access to your apps and content plus personalized recommendations that make it easy to discover new favorites
  • Up to 7 hours of reading, surfing the web, watching videos, and listening to music
  • Stay connected with fast web browsing, email, and calendar support
