I’ve been saying for awhile that “Kohl’s is the new Gap.” Remember when The Gap carried basic yet well-made, trendy clothing for good prices? Maybe you don’t, because that was a fairly long time ago. Maybe you’ve never even been to The Gap, because they haven’t been cool for several years now. Since about 2004, the quality of their merchandise has declined noticeably. But Kohl’s Department Stores has stepped into that gap. Kohl’s offers well-made, reasonably-priced clothing. Their pricing is a distinct strength — they probably offer the best combination of price-to-quality of any major department store, especially online. They are the right store at the right economic time.
They also carry a wider selection of products than The Gap ever did, from clothing to housewares. Give Kohl’s a try.
And I’ve got more deals from Kohl’s further down the page ↓
CHEFS is one of the most venerable and respected kitchen supply businesses online. But they weren’t always online — in fact, in 1979, when they began, they were called “Chef’s Catalog” because they sold goods for the kitchen through catalogs. (Which they still do.) Fortunately, you don’t have to wait to use the catalog because you have a computer and can look at the thousands of great items they have for cooks by using the links included here…

–> How to Use An Online Coupon or Promo Code to Save Money:
Many of the discounts and good deals offered here (such as percent off, free shipping, etc.) are based on the use of a coupon or promotional code (promo code). If you’re not familiar with them, here’s how to use these codes…
- Take note of the coupon code in the listing for the company or the deal on this “Good Deals and Outlets” page. Click on the link provided (text link or banner link) to go to the company’s website. (Sometimes you’ll get the discount simply by clicking on the special link provided here. In that case, the company’s website will inform you that your coupon has been automatically applied. For example, BuyCostumes sometimes does this.)
- Shop for what you want and put it in the site’s shopping cart or basket. (Note that sometimes a deal is contingent on spending a certain minimum amount on your order.)
- When you’re done shopping and have selected all the items you want to buy, begin the “Checkout” process.
- During the Checkout process, which may involve several successive screens where you enter data such as shipping address and credit card info, look for a field/box that is labeled “Enter coupon code” or something similar. Enter the coupon code or promo code in the box (sometimes you will need to click a button such as “Apply coupon”). Be aware that oftentimes the code will be case sensitive, so enter it correctly.
- In the order tally provided by the merchant, check to make sure that the coupon has been applied — that the price has been discounted, or shipping charges eliminated, etc.
- After applying the coupon, complete the Checkout process.
- Smile, because you’ve just saved some significant dollars (and I’ll bet you didn’t have to pay sales tax, either).

Much is made these days of shopping “green.” This means buying products that are more environmentally friendly than standard products — products that are produced in “sustainable” ways that pollute less or don’t pollute at all, products that will biodegrade easily after they’re thrown away, products that pollute less or not at all when you use them, products that are easily recycled.
As you might imagine, it is not always easy to mass-produce products like this — especially when so much of our manufacturing is set up to minimize costs — which often means making a product in the cheapest, dirtiest way. But more and more, companies are recognizing that making a product with environmental factors in mind leads to greater efficiencies throughout the life-cycle of the product — from the moment it is designed until it is worn out. Companies are discovering they can actually improve their bottom line by being greener in every phase of designing and manufacturing what they sell. And these products often perform in a superior way (for example, think of products that are Energy Star qualified).
You can “vote” for companies like these, and support products like these, with your dollars. Every time you buy a product that is more sustainably-produced, you tilt the marketplace a little more toward keeping our planet clean and livable. You help ensure that your grandchildren will get to enjoy a more pristine, healthy world. Check for the “green” description in the companies mentioned on this page and throughout this site — companies such as Buygreen.com, Bambeco, Patagonia, PlanetShoes, and National Geographic. Look for the term “eco-friendly.”
