We usually take our life advice from a talking vulva, and so should you! via Facebook

FACT: Financial responsibility is sexy, and so is a room full of sex toys. Babeland (462 Bergen Street, Park Slope) can appreciate both of these things equally, which is why they’re combining the two this week for their Customer Appreciation Sale starting on Thursday. Finally, a way to prove both your seriousness in spicing things up in the bedroom while still being able to pay the rent! (more…)

Carrie on my wayward son.

Film Biz Recycling, as you might know, takes used clothes from film and TV shows that would normally go in the garbage and resells them to you for cheap. On Friday, the Gowanus shop is having a big sale on 80s clothes, after getting an “enormous wardrobe and material selection from a recently canceled show that takes place in the 80s.” The store isn’t allowed to say where it gets the stuff from, but we’re just gonna use our super powers of journalistic deduction and say that it’s from The Carrie Diaries, which just bit the dust. Hey, Carrie Jr.’s loss is your gain! The night is going to be a whole 80s party with karaoke, videos and free fuzzy navels too. (more…)

Oh, like you can live without this thing in your apartment now that you’ve seen it. via Facebook

Tired of looking at the furniture you’ve had since you’ve moved to New York? Going with the floordrobe system of storing your clothes and all your friends are making fun of you even though it’s a totally awesome way to store your clothes? Well, good news for you, because you can get enough new old furniture to last a lifetime this weekend, because Film Biz Recycling is selling everything in their store at a 50% discount. (more…)

Hang out outside Brooklyn Boulders this weekend and get a deep discount. Hang out, get it? Get it? You get it. via Facebook

People seem to like Brooklyn Boulders, but one thing that no one ever likes is paying for things. We’re sure for instance, if there was a way to download a huge climbing facility from The Pirate Bay, people would do it. The next best thing though, is getting access to one really cheaply, which is what Brooklyn Boulders will give you this weekend if you’re crazy enough to show up at eight in the damn morning. But check out how cheap things will be if you show up that early: first person in line outside the store gets a free four-month spring pass. (more…)

exit9 gift shop

A spinning flying light-up UFO is a bargain at any price, but especially if it ends up on sale. via Facebook

One thing about sales is that while it’s great to save money, they’re often not random and out of control enough for our tastes. Great, 50% off jeans for a week, the same jeans, the same price cut. Exit9 Gift Emporium (127 Smith Street, Boerum Hill) knows how boring that is, so they’re holding a sale from February 21 to March 9 that they’re calling Price Is Right Sale, where the discounts on window items start at 30% tomorrow and then start going up progressively, reaching 85% off by March 8.

Heed the siren’s call, car drivers. In an attempt to destroy Detroit for good, Citi Bike has jumped on the Groupon bandwagon by offering a chance to save more than half on their bike sharing service. If you think $10 for that infrequent 24-hour pass is too much (like we do) and can’t justify $100 on a twelve-month subscription, then check out the four options they offer, especially the $45 for ten passes deal. Decide soon, because the deal expires in a couple of days. (more…)

Listen: Your roommates are tired of seeing you naked just because you can’t be bothered to shop for new clothes. But hey, we get it: shopping can be stressful, pricey and generally soul-strangling. Then there’s the added pressure of what to actually buy. Well, it just so happens that this Sunday starting at 11am, Dusty Rose is making it easy for you: they’re hosting “Buy the Bag,” what I can only describe as a vintage shoppers’ free-for-all at their Greenpoint warehouse.

You want to find a gym to join and start going to now, so as to avoid the panicky frantic workouts you start in mid-April while trying to get your perfect summer body. But not just any gym. One where you can also find a basketball team to join up with, a pool and group exercise classes. Aha, the YMCA! And while usually a YMCA membership comes with a steep joiner’s fee, they’re letting you join without it through October 14. What are you waiting for? (more…)

Want new clothes? Pff, we all do buddy, get in line. Sorry, that was mean, haven’t had our coffee yet. But the point remains, everyone wants clothes to wear, but they don’t want to pay full price for them. If only there was a way…oh, here’s one. It’s a little sad though/ After four years in existence, Park Slope thrift store Odd Twin (164 5th Avenue) is closing its doors forever. The silver lining to this is that you get to take advantage of their closing sale, which includes up to 50% off items in the store. (more…)
