$1.49 Mickey & Minnie bags & FREE SHIPPING (on everything) at Disney Store September 2, 2010

I just love it when the Disney Store offers FREE SHIPPING on everything! That’s when I go straight to their Minnie Bagsale section and stock up on birthday and holiday gifts. You know those birthdays are coming up, so why not save yourself the time of rushing around later?

Here’s a resourceful idea! Instead of using wrapping paper or a paper gift bag the next time you give a gift, use a Mickey bagMickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse reusable eco-friendly shopping bag! Right now they’re just $1.49 a piece with FREE shipping from the Disney Store.

Their lunch totes are on sale for just $3.99 (reg. $12.50) and the matching backpacks are on sale for just $7.99 (reg. $19.50). Themes include Minnie, Mickey, fairies, princesses, Handy Manny, Phineas & Ferb, Toy Story – Woody & Buzz, Cars, and more! Put those two items together and you have one heck of a fabulous gift for a kiddo! And, who says adults can’t use Disney lunch totes for work? 🙂

And, NOW is the time to buy those Halloween costumes…

*** To get your FREE SHIPPING, use code FREESHIP through Monday, September 6, 2010. ***

$10.50 Lands’ End backpack & FREE SHIPPING August 30, 2010

BackpackTwo things I love about Lands’ End — quality products and stellar customer service. I remember my dad always ordering his business shirts from this company, and I’ve owned countless backpacks and totes made by Lands’ End (one of them is 13 years old and still toting strong!).

Here’s a fabulous Lands’ End backpack for just $10.50 with FREE SHIPPING! This FeatherLight 100 backpack, available in this “true navy plaid” or a “golden khaki plaid,”  is geared for kids ages 5-8 (or folks who just need a smaller-sized backpack). Like so many of their products, you can have it monogrammed for just $5.  To score your FREE SHIPPING, enter code AUG30 and pin 2074 at checkout.

At this price, please consider ordering a few to donate to local shelters or foster programs. For example, Metrocare Services in Dallas would be thrilled to receive these for the children, teens, and adults they serve!

Expires: Unknown, but based on the code for the FREE SHIPPING, I’m betting that code expires today, Aug. 30, 2010.

Thanks, SlickDeals!
