Ok, we close on our house TOMORROW, but let’s face it, Cyber Monday is the new Black Friday, so I can find a few minutes to share some of the deals I’ve already come across. There’s so many, it’d be a tragedy not to.

Faux Fur Throw at West Elm for $64

  1. Target’s offering a KitchenAid Mixer for over 50% off ($200)! This is an awesome registry gift to snag if you have any soon-to-be brides in mind.
  2. West Elm is offering 30% off everything and up to 70% off markdowns – use code SAVENOW.
  3. Banana Republic and Gap are offering a generous 50% off – no code needed.
  4. Everything at J. Crew is 40% off and that’s exactly what you should get, everything – use code HOLIDAY.
  5. The perfect ankle boot – and almost everything else- is 40% off at Cole Haan.
  6. Anthropologie is offering 30% of everything – use code LETSGO.

There’s so many more, so click around and have fun. Next time you hear from me I’ll be blogging from our NEW HOUSE! I. Can’t. Wait.

We ventured into HomeGoods and picked up a few things and after doing some reach, I learned we got some mega deals.
