The Rundown: Your Shopping Cheat Sheet

Happy Easter weekend, everyone!

While Easter isn’t typically a big weekend for sales, I’ve spotted some good ones. Please note that two of the best ones – an extra 40% off at Gap and the ModCloth 40% off flash sale – are both only valid through the end of the day TODAY. I can resist a lot of sales, but I’ve got items in my cart from both of these retailers because the prices are just that good!

It’s supposed to be 83 degrees here tomorrow so we’ve got big plans – buying a lawn mower! Ah, the joys of homeownership!

Have a great one, everyone!

4 Free Months of Ink

HP Instant Ink

Are you familiar with the HP Instant Ink program? It’s a really neat idea and right now when you register you will receive four FREE months of ink!

To take advantage of HP Instant Ink you first need to purchase an Instant Ink-compatible printer. The cheapest currently appears to be the HP DeskJet 3630, which is $59 at Amazon. Once you have a printer, you can register for HP Instant Ink, which is basically an ink subscription. No more purchasing expensive ink cartridges, as new ink will be shipped to you monthly. You choose the plan that will best fit your needs and pay monthly. You can cancel anytime.

To get the additional three months of free ink, be sure to use code “3MONTHS” when registering. This promo is valid through May 22, 2017.

Fashion to Your Door… for Less

Le Tote Trial

If you’ve been wanting to try out Le Tote, a clothing rental service, this is a great time to do so because they’re offering 50 percent off your first TWO months! They regularly offer 50 percent off your first month, but this is the first time I’ve seen them extend it the offer an additional month!

Use code “APRIL50FOR2” when you register to take advantage of this offer. It’s valid through April 30, 2017.

If you’re not sure how Le Tote works, check out this Le Tote review that Cheryl wrote for us a while back. She loved the service!

If I’m being honest – and I usually am, to my own detriment – I haven’t been a huge fan of the adult styles at Gap for awhile. Absolutely nothing has appealed to me and I’m not sure why because I think I’d be the perfect person for their laid-back aesthetic. That said, I CANNOT stop shopping there for my kids. When it comes to their kids’ clothing I am an absolute Gap groupie, and I’m not sure how I’m going to stop myself from spending all of my money there this weekend!

The Gap Super Spring Sale is on now and select styles are marked down up to 75 percent! Plus, you can also use code “HOPTOIT” to take an ADDITIONAL 40 percent off your entire purchase. The Spring Sale runs through April 21, but the extra 40 percent is only valid through the end of the day TODAY, April 14, 2017.

Please, someone, hide my wallet.

For the Littles

First Day of School Chalkboard

We are admittedly much closer to the end of the school year than we are to the start of the new school year, but if you’re planning ahead you might want to grab one of these First Day of School Chalkboards from Jane. I mean, how adorable is this?! I love that a chalkboard like this will also encourage continuity, so you’ll be able to look back on the photos and see how your child has grown from the start of one school year to the next. Personally, I know that I jumped from wanting to be a rock star one year to an astronaut the next! The chalkboards are on sale at Jane for $9.99 – a big discount from their normal $32.99 price tag!
