with Mir Kamin
I'm a freelance writer and mother of two working from home, which theoretically means I can set my own schedule so as to best accommodate my family. In reality, "flexible hours" often equals "working too much." Yes, I'm my own boss; no, that doesn't mean life is easy. It's hard to leave the office when you live there. But I love what I do and feel very lucky. And not just because I get paid to work in my pajamas.

The gracious and oh-so-pretty Nataly has been smart and wonderful enough to suggest that I post some Want Not deals here while waiting for the crisis with my web hosting to be resolved. I’m game if you are, so here are a few finds for today (I may come back and add more later):
Today and tomorrow only (Wednesday and Thursday, November 7-8), Lands’ End is offering free shipping on every order. If, say, the elves sometimes leave your kids matching jammies on Christmas Eve? This might be a useful thing to know. Just sayin’.
For the month of November, get $25 off instantly when you spend $49+ on eligible ConAgra Foods at Amazon with coupon code CONAGRA1. You will be astounded at the breadth of grocery products that covers. (I’m personally not so interested in the Slim Jims, but hey—to each her own!)
Also at Amazon: Need a baby gift? The Fisher Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium is down to just $11.99. (Amazon’s original price is inflated—I doubt they ever sold it for $48—but the regular price is around $30, so it’s still a great deal.)
Through November 11th, take 50% off your gift certificate order at Restaurant.com with coupon code THANKS. This means you get a $25 dining certificate for a cool $5. Many participating restaurants release only a limited numbers of certificates each month, so the sooner you make your selections, the better. (Also: Dinner out on the cheap. What’s not to like??)
Get free shipping on your $75+ order at Sierra Trading Post by going through that there link. I think that one’s valid for the rest of November.
Many, many thanks to all of my readers who followed me over here while my sites are unavailable. I love you guys. Please visit the rest of Work It, Mom! while you’re here, too.
