Morning Coffee: Decluttered the coat closet

We had someone out to check something pipe-related, and had to remove everything from the coat closet, two-thirds of which is tucked away behind a wall and not very accessible. That meant a lot of what came out of the closet was a surprise - like a set of golf clubs I haven't touched in ten years, a pair of roller blades I haven't touched in even longer than that, coats I've never worn, old shoes, etc. I ended up culling so much of the stuff that I've run out of a place to put them until I have time to itemize them before donating them!

Amazon Mom members can get 5 refill packs of Seventh Generation Chlorine Free Baby Wipes for just $8.32 at Amazon with Subscribe & Save. That works out to $0.02 per wipe, which is a good price for any brand. Order three boxes to extend your Amazon Mom free Prime Shipping for an additional month. Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

Also at Amazon, the 10 a.m. PST Grocery Lightning Deal is GoGo Squeez Applesauce on the Go - you should get 48 pouches for less than the Subscribe & Save price of $29.25. I love pouches for school lunches since the single-serve cups are too difficult for little hands to open, and this product gets five out of five stars in 34 reviews.

Over at Groupon, you can get 5 Blockbuster Express movie rentals for just $2 in Philadelphia. This is an online deal that can be purchased by anyone regardless of location - just click on the city at the top of the page to change your location. Don't forget to shop through Ebates to get back 3% of your purchase. And thank you if you join(ed) Groupon using my referral link!
