Wake Up to Terrific Savings

If you’re anything like me, getting up in the morning is harder some days than it is on others. I don’t know about you, but a digital clock radio does little to make those days easier. I want to open my eyes and immediately see something that makes me happy enough to feel good about getting out of bed.

I want to see something like this:

Millefiori Murano Glass Alarm Clock
This gorgeous alarm clock has an easy to read face surrounded by exquisite Murano millefiore glass flowers. The whole thing is bound in a cheerful goldtone frame (or silver, for those who prefer it) by Antica Murrina.

On top of all that, it’s on a great sale. The retail price is $142.00, but it’s available right now from Forzieri Italia for just $92.00.

Now those are some timely savings!

Manly, Yes, But I Like It, Too

A good watch is both practical and attractive. And with all the handsome watches out there, there really is no excuse for wearing an ugly one.

This Seiko men’s watchicon is my idea of a superfantastic timepiece. I love the clean look of black Roman numerals on a white background and a simple leather strap. It looks neat, and gets you taken seriously. What’s more, the quartz movement keeps time well, so you’ll always know what time it is.

Best of all, it’s on sale. The retail value of this great watch is $140.00, which isn’t too bad for a good watch. But why go for ‘not bad’ when you can get a great deal? Right now Overstock.com has it for just $84.99 for a savings of $55.01!

I don’t know about you, but I think it may be time for a new watch.

Timing Is Everything…

…and now is the best time to head over to Sur La Table, since they’re having their annual summer sale. If you hurry, you can save up to 50% on cookware, cookbooks, barware, serving pieces, and so much more.

As for me, I want this sleekly classic kitchen clock with attached 60-minute timer. The removable timer incorporates a magnet, so that you can put it where it will be the most useful for you. Stick it on the fridge or stove while you’re cooking and keep a watchful eye on how much longer things have to go. Or just leave it attached to the clock so you never lose track of where to look for a reminder of when the casserole will be done.

Aluminum Clock with Magnetic Timer Originally sold for $58.95, it’s currently on sale for just $39.99. That’s a savings of just about 33%. But hurry! Time is running out on this fabulous deal.

Do Right By Dad

Father’s Day is nearly upon us. If you haven’t done anything about that, don’t panic! I’m here to help you find just the right thing to make your father – or that special father in your life – happy as can be without breaking your bank account.

Once upon a time, everyone knew what to give for Father’s Day: a tie, an accessory for the barbeque, something car-related…maybe an electronic gadget. What else was there to give?

Well, times have changed and now anything goes. Why not break out and give him something unexpected.

Fellini Unisex Sunglasses These stylish Fellini sunglasses by Blinde Design will make any dad feel extra cool out in the sunshine. They come in your choice of blue or charcoal grey, complete with a soft black case and cleaning cloth.

You can get these babies from Overstock.com at an incredible deal. The suggested retail price is $280.00, but if you hurry, you can get them for just $49.99! And since they’re unisex in design, you might want a pair for yourself, too.

Best of all, it’s a steal. The retail price may be $250.00, but at Watchzone.com you can get it for just $187.50. I think it may be time for a new watch.

Double Time

If any of these situations seems familiar, or if you just like unusual timepieces, this handsome Skagen dual-time watch may be the one for you.

Skagen Dual-Face Watch While it’s designed for men, the sleek style would flatter wrists on many women as well. It’s also water resistant to 30 meters/100 feet.

This watch retails for $115.00. But you can get it from Watchzone.com for just $74.52. I think that makes it time for a new watch. Don’t you?
