Dean Russo canvas prints for $47.98 shipped

For the next day or so, Tanga is featuring Dean Russo 26" x 18" canvas prints for $44.99 + $4.99 shipping = $49.98 shipped.  Use promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout to drop that price by another $2.00 per canvas to $47.98.  (FYI, these canvases normally retail for $250.00.)  There are also  40" x 26" sizes available for $30.00 more.

Groupon Goods ran a similar deal recently, and I bought myself the beagle portrait pictured above, and I also bought the "In a perfect world, every dog has a home..." canvas pictured below for my sister-in-law, Ellen, another dog lover.

We both absolutely love our canvases.  In my office, it lends a lot of color to an otherwise very quiet, drab space.  Art is very personal, so you really have to like this kind of wild color and invention.  (Full disclosure:  my husband is not a fan at all.  He likes much more conventional art.)  So this kind of art isn't for everyone, but if you're an animal lover and love this kind of colorful exposition, this is a major bargain.  The quality of the canvas is so nice, that I hung mine up exactly as it came, frameless.  

About Dean Russo:   Hailing from New York, Dean Russo is a modern force in pop art. Having attended The School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute in NYC, Mr. Russo has developed a unique style, synthesizing his psychedelic approach to Pop Art with his love of animals. Dean Russo’s work is a celebration of our love for our animal companions and his pieces are routinely collected by art lovers all over the world.

Gefen honey bears, $2.75 each

My stock up price on plain clover honey has always been anything $0.25 per ounce or less (though I usually can do better than that at Costco when they stock honey...more like $0.15 per oz. in bulk). 

Amazon has got a 6-count pack of these 12 oz. Gefen honey bears for $16.52, which works out to $0.23 per oz., so I grabbed it for the upcoming holidays.  I'm always running out of honey in September and October.

20% off all Keds (including sale items) and free shipping

Keds.com has got a rare discount and free shipping offer (it's usually one OR the other, rarely both together). Get 20% off all styles and free shipping when you enter promo code KEDSEXTRA20 at checkout, (including sale shoes).

I love Keds and have been wearing them since I was a kid. They are super-comfortable but are very well made so they still give my feet much-needed support.  And now they have some really pretty new styles, in addition to the solid "Champion" style that I've been wearing for years.

Check out the blue floral tie-ups pictured above for $45.00 or $36.00 with free shipping after the promo code.

There are also guys styles, like these Chukka Suedes, originally $75.00, marked down to $34.95, and now are $27.96 with free shipping after the 20% off promo code.  These are a suede upper with a rubber outsole, so they are great for walking.

There are kids styles as well.  Make sure you check out each section's "Deals and Steals" selections first.

Cashmere long sleeve sweater (tons of colors and sizes including petites) for $84.90 shipped from Nordstrom

I know no one is in the mood to think about (uch, double uch) sweaters right now, but yay, Nordstrom has a classic Halogen long sleeve cashmere sweater for $84.90 (with free shipping and free returns) in a ton of regular and petite sizes XS-XL and in seven colors.  You can wear it alone or with a shirt or shell beneath it.  On August 5th, the Nordstrom sale will be done and this sweater will go up to $128.00, so snag it while you can

Salad spinner with storage lid for $9.99 and set of three CaliBowls for $13.99 on Groupon Goods

Groupon Goods has got a couple of very nice deals on two kitchenware items.

The first is this salad spinner, starting at $9.99 for the 1.5 quart.

 Now, let me just go on record as saying that the bestest and cheapest salad spinner ever is this one at Ikea for $3.99.  (I actually got mine when it was an insane $2.99.)  But I recognize that not everyone has the option of going to Ikea and getting it.  So, rather than spend upwards of $20 on a salad spinner on Amazon, have a looksee at this one on Groupon Goods.  It comes in three sizes, 1.5 quart for $9.99, 3 quart for $11.99 or 5 quart for $13.99. I'm thinking that unless you own a vegan restaurant, the 1.5 quart one should be adequate, since you can always spin your lettuce in two batches.  The BPA-free bowl can double as a salad bowl or a storage bowl (comes with a storage lid).  The liner can also be used as a colander.

On orders of $14.99 or more, you'll avoid the ridiculous $2.99 shipping, so order two and use the second one as your Pesach spinner (hello romaine lettuce) or a neat shower gift.

The second Groupon Good deal that I liked was this 3-piece set of CaliBowl Multicolored Nesting Mixing Bowls for $13.99. Hardly a week goes by when I don't get a request for a deal on CaliBowls, so I'm thrilled that Groupon Goods has got this. (FYI, Amazon has the same set for $19.51.)
  • Three-piece set
  • Made from durable recycled polypropylene
  • BPA-free
  • Bowls nest within one another to cut down on clutter
  • Specialized lip guides liquids into bowls instead of onto counters
  • Nonslip bases
  • Shatterproof
  • Microwave-safe
  • Top-rack dishwasher-safe
  • Capacity: 20 oz., 40 oz., and 95 oz.
Again, we need to avoid the ridiculous $2.99 shipping charge that ruins the deal, so I'd recommend getting two of these sets.  You really can never have enough bowls (I find) and you can always set some aside for Pesach.  Each set nests nicely, so no worries about space.

Stock up time on bathroom tissue: Scott Extra Soft for $0.38 per double roll

Amazon has got the Scott Extra Soft 36 double roll bathroom tissue pack for $13.65 when you stack the $2.00 coupon and the 5% Subscribe & Save discount, which works out to $0.38 per extra soft double roll.

Click here and scroll down slightly to "clip" the $2.00 coupon.  Then select the $15.65 Subscribe & Save option.  Your total should be $13.65, which comes to slightly less than $0.38 per double roll.  Since it's Subscribe & Save, shipping is free (no Prime account needed).

Balance Bars, $4.02 for a box of six ($0.67 per bar, shipped)

Love Balance Bars?  

Amazon has a couple of flavors of Balance Bars of that are 20% off, thanks to this coupon.  Stack that with their 5% Subscribe & Save discount and you've got yourself a really nice deal on Balance Bars.
  1. "Clip" this 20% off coupon here.
  2. Select the $5.21 Subscribe & Save option for the 6-count Smores Gold Balance Bars here, or
    Select the $5.09 Subscribe & Save option for the 6-count Yogurt Honey Peanut Balance Bars here.
  3. Because you've selected a Subscribe & Save option, shipping is free, even without a Prime account.
  4. The Smores Gold Balance Bars will come to $4.11 per box of six or $0.68 per bar.
    The Yogurt Honey Peanut Balance Bars will come to $4.02 per box of six, or $0.67 per bar.
If you want to stock up on these, there is also the 15-count Caramel Nut Blast Gold Balance Bars here. Select the Subscribe & Save option of $12.73 and stacked with the 20% coupon, you'll pay $10.05 or $0.67 per bar.

If you're a little leery about purchasing a Subscribe & Save deal, let me put your fears to rest and explain what an awesome program it is. Selecting an Amazon Subscribe & Save deal is a fantastic way to save money.  It's pretty much risk-free, even if you are doing it just to get the additional discount. You can UNsubscribe to Subscribe & Save very easily, by going to your account as soon as your order has shipped. Even if (worse case scenario) you completely forget to unsubscribe, Amazon will not send out an additional order without shooting you a warning email first, giving you ample time to unsubscribe and cancel any additional orders in time. It's pretty much an all-win proposition. Shipping on Subscribe & Save items is always free, even without a Prime membership.

    New $2.00 coupon for Zevia soda


    Zevia has got a new $2.00/1 six pack coupon for one 6-pack of cans or one 4-pack of bottles of Zevia soda, any flavor. It expires 30-days from printing.  We buy lots of this uber-pricey, not-unhealthy, all-natural soda, and we never pay more than a dollar per six-pack, and usually, a six-pack costs more like $0.25 when a sale is combined with stacked coupons.  (Zevia's normal price in Whole Foods is $5.99 per 6-pack.  Target, Sprouts, and some Kroger affiliates also carry Zevia soda.)

    If you've got a Whole Foods or Sprouts nearby, you can stack this manufacturer's coupon with either of these store coupons:
    If you've never had Zevia before, you're in for a treat. It contains no artificial sweeteners or colors (it's clear), is sweetened with Stevia, is vegan, kosher pareve certified by the OU, gluten-free, and zero calories. It's all natural and comes in several flavors (we love the grape).
