Here in Michigan things are starting to get cold.  And windy.  And dry.  My daughter woke up this morning, started to cry, and was sure she had a sore throat.  Nope.  It was just really dry in her room overnight.   I knew it was bad when I was brushing my hair this morning and it stood on end like I’d been rubbing it with a balloon.  Now I’m a little scared to pull the clothes out of the dryer.  Haha!

Anyway, I’ve got to get a new humidifier for my girlie’s room, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect for Best Buy to mark down the Crane Owl Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier as one of their Deals of the Day.  It’s $34.99 (reg. $49.99) and ships free.  This is the lowest price.  It’s $39.99 at both Target & Amazon.

Sale price valid only on November 12, 2015.

Best Buy: Rayovac AA Batteries 20ct $5.99 Shipped!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.



Battery season is nearly upon us!  Between kids toys and winter storm power outages, we go through a lot of them between now and spring.   I’m always well aware of it, too, because it’s so tough to get a great deal on batteries.  Thankfully, this is also the time of year that we start to see excellent deals on them.  One of Best Buy’s Deals of the Day is a 20 pack of Rayovac AA Batteries for $5.99 (reg. $11.99) shipped.  That works out to $0.29/battery – a good price with no coupons needed and shipped right to your door.

Remember, Best Buy is offering free standard shipping on any order through the holiday season.

Best Buy: Amazon Fire TV Stick $24.99 (reg. $39.99) + Free In Store Pickup!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.



Best Buy has an excellent Deal of the Day today.  The Amazon Fire TV Stick is on sale for $24.99 (reg. $39.99) and you can pick it up in your local store for free.  Alternatively, shipping is free with orders of $35 or more.  It shows up as $3.98 for me.

You may remember my post about ditching satellite in favor of devices like this and an old school antenna for local channels.  We have a good assortment of streaming devices in our house now – Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire Sticks, Roku Sticks, and Xbox 360.  I can tell you that the Amazon Fire TV and Sticks are the clear winners all around.  In that post, I put together a comparison chart between the Roku 3 and Amazon Fire TV.  The Fire Stick lacks the quad processor, so it isn’t able to play all games with extensive graphics, but it’s great for bedroom TV’s AND college kids as they can access the home library using the stick.  That’s really the only palpable drawback other than the lack of voice search that you get with the Fire TV.  That’s perfect for my older girlie who can’t spell everything just yet.  It’s fast and capable.  I highly recommend it.
