A couple of weeks ago, I told you about Woot – one of my go-to places for snatching up products at deep discounts that I can’t always buy at my go-to thrift stores. 🙂 I also told you about their upcoming birthday week and all the great deals they would be having.
Well, I kept a close eye on their site in case they had anything we’d been holding out on purchasing or in case I saw any great potential gift items for the holidays. I ended up walking away from their birthday week with a few fantastic bargain purchases….
T-fal 14 Piece Cookware Set for $84
The majority of the pots and pans we had been cooking with were from Grunt’s bachelor days. They were in rough condition, but I had just been dealing with it, putting off a cookware purchase as long as I could – I mean, I’m not a gourmet chef and so I’d rather spend my money on something more fun than cookware. Haha! However, the hubs has taken over a good portion of the cooking this summer. I know, right?! #score He’s cooked the whole family breakfast just about every morning and he’s also mastered the art of Taco Tuesday. A week or so into summer, he noted how bad some of our skillets were and that they were interfering with perfecting his newfound love for making omelets.
Of course I didn’t want to give him any reason to quit cooking for us, so I moved new cookware to the top of my list. Am I right or am I right?
So, when I saw the T-fal cookware set pop up as one of Woot’s daily deals, I snagged it.
This set normally goes for $140 bucks, so buying it for $84 was a deal. And even though cooking isn’t my favorite thing to do, I’m actually pretty excited about this new set. It actually making me want to cook is yet to be determined still.
Kitchen Knife Sharpener for $5
Is it obvious how much we put off kitchen related purchases? These knives were wedding presents when we got married nine years ago – and they’ve never once been sharpened since. This knife sharpener was part of Woot’s Totally Fun Pricing deal. There were various items that launched with a price of $1 and then increased in price as the items sold out at the lower price. I wasn’t quick enough to get the sharpener at $1, but I was quick enough to get it at $5 – saving me 77% off the retail price!
Weighted Blanket for $60
While Grunt and I have been talking about getting one of these for ourselves, this weighted blanket was actually purchased as a gift for my mother-in-law.
It was another daily deal during Woot’s birthday week. There were lots of different size, weight and color options to choose from. The one we went with would have normally been $110, so we saved about 45% getting it on Woot. These things are legit weighted, y’all. I was so surprised when I got it out of the box. They are super soft too. We might have to get one for ourselves sooner rather than later.
And…a Bag of Crap
You might remember Bags of Crap from my earlier post about Woot. The bags cost $10 and are a random collection of stuff put in a box and sent to you (shipping included in cost). You literally have no clue what you’re going to get. If you have kids or grandkids, you might be familiar with “Blind Bags.” Well, these are blind bags for adults.
Everything you see above was what came in our Bag of Crap. As you can see, it truly is completely random. It had everything from a stuffed monkey to car fuses. A few of our favorite items included a Darth Vader World’s Greatest Dad glass, the monkey of course was a favorite with the Circus, there was a nice wallet type phone case, a hummingbird feeder and some cool containers for meal prep.
Tips for Snagging the Best Deals on Woot
Woot can get overwhelming with all the new daily deals and all the other promotions they run. Add limited quantities on top of that and it can be a little more stressful. Here are a few tips I’ve discovered for snagging deals on Woot…
Download the Woot app on your phone.
They’ll send you alerts as new daily deals and other items launch.
Check Woot daily.
If you can, take 3 minutes out of your morning routine and hop on Woot to see if there’s anything new you need.
Pull the trigger.
If there’s something you need that goes on sale at a great price, don’t hesitate. There are often limited quantities of what Woot sells.
Think long term.
Y’all know I love gift giving season, so when I’m shopping on Woot I try to keep people on my gift list in mind and potential gifts they would love.
