Every day, the Internet is teeming with deals, sales, discounts, and savings. But, as the Internet is a big, distracting place, said deals can be difficult to find. Plus, you don’t have time to sniff ’em all out. You have work and kids and a total of 25 minutes of free time that shouldn’t be spent looking for discounts. So, to help you put, we’ll be combing through the daily offerings and rounding up the deals we like, and think you might find useful. Today, check out great deals on a Lego Star Wars advent calendar, classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses, Patagonia rain jacket, retro Reebok sneakers and spooky Halloween decorations.
Lego Star Wars 2018 Advent Calendar
It’s barely October, but there’s nothing wrong with getting a jump on Christmas. In exactly two months, your kids open the first square on this advent calendar with daily Lego Star Wars models and figures. Getting a surprise gift every day is a big part of the fun, and at the end they can play with all of their miniatures on an included playmat. Picking up this calendar today is a great way to get your holiday shopping started off on the right (read: money-saving) foot: it’s $7 off at Walmart.
Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses
On the off chance you’re dressing up as Tom Cruise in Risk Business or one of the Blues Brothers for Halloween, these shades are a costume essential. For everyone else, they’re just a style essential. This pair features black frames with light grey lenses that offer 100 percent UV protection. Most authentic Wayfarers cost well over $100, but this pair is available at Nordstrom Rack for just $60
Patagonia Stretch Rainshadow Jacket
We may be well beyond May showers, but there’s plenty of wet weather in the coming months. Be prepared with this waterproof jacket from Patagonia. It’s made of a stretchy, breathable nylon and features a half-zip design, adjustable hood and front pocket with horizontal zipper that, like all of the zippers on this jacket, is waterproof. When you’re not using it the whole thing stuffs into the chest pocket, so you can stow it in your bag in case of a sudden downpour. It’s 40 percent today at Nordstrom, which leaves plenty of leftover cash for your rainy day fund.
Reebok Classic Leather Sneakers
Add this pair of Reeboks to your collection of Air Force Ones and Stan Smiths. These retro-inspired low-cut sneakers sound flashy when you hear they have suede and metallic details, but they’re actually a pretty casual sneaker that looks great with jeans and sweatpants. They feature the Union Jack Reebok logo and are $10 (or 7.65 pounds) off their normal price today at Reebok’s official online store.
Design Toscano Halloween Decor
It’s finally October, and Amazon is celebrating with a big sale on Halloween Decor from Design Toscano. Take your pick from 50 different figures depicting everything from black cats to gargoyles to disembodied hands. We’re fans of Shriek the Skeleton, a hand-cast model of a tortured skeleton made of resin and real stone that is appropriate for indoor and outdoor use thanks to a coat of UV-resistant paint. The medium-sized version of Shriek is a foot tall and 16 inches wide and weighs five pounds. It can be yours for 30 percent off its normal price.
