$1.99 & FREE shipping for TWO custom handbag hangers July 13, 2010

Ok, so what’s a handbag hanger and why do I need one? Well, when you go out to dine, where does your handbag go? The back of your chair so that you can be pick-pocketed? Your lap so you can drop food on it? The floor so you can bring home who-knows-how-many icky germs?

Here’s the solution! You need a handbag hanger! ArtsCow’s “great bag hanger provides an easy way to hang your purse or handbag. The hanger folds into a disc shape and are the perfect size for carrying in your purse. Customize with your own personalized [photo or] logo (1 1/4″ in diameter), with enamel coating for long time protection.”

Normally $6.99 each plus shipping, use code HANGHOOK to get TWO for a total of $1.99 with FREE shipping!

Some ideas… Use photos of your kids to make gifts for their grandmothers! Use your company logo or a friend’s company’s logo for extremely inexpensive give-aways or gifts! Use a photo of your pet so Fluffy or Fido is always with you! Perhaps a photo of the sunset from your latest vacation to whisk you away to paradise!

50% OFF & FREE shipping from Coldwater Creek June 6, 2010

Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve always thought of Coldwater Creek as a place where my mom shops. Please don’t get me wrong — she’s a stylish, classy lady, but our tastes are a bit different in clothing. She’s a Coldwater Creek kind of gal, and I am more of an Ann Taylor type. Well, I found a code for 50% OFF & FREE shipping from Coldwater Creek, so I couldn’t resist giving the site a once-over.

I found these fabulous brown & metallic flip-flops at Coldwater Creek — also available in blue — for just $12.97 (+tax), regularly $25.95! And they’ll arrive to your door at this 50% OFF price with FREE SHIPPING when you use the code WHH9216. NOTE: THIS EXPIRES TODAY!

If your items don’t fit, you can always return them to a Coldwater Creek store near you! (Find the nearest store.)
