Lowe's Mulch SaleLowe's Mulch Sale
Store: Lowe's
Price: $5 for $10

Just when you thought The Great Mulchening was over and done with for good, Lowe's strikes back with furious force as if to say "here, have five bags of mulch for $10." We welcome their generous proposal with open arms, especially since it's tied as the best deal we've seen on mulch at Lowe's this year. If 2024 will be remembered for anything, it will be for great mulch deals. Rightfully so.

adidas Men's Tiro 23 League Pantsadidas Men's Tiro 23 League Pants
Store: eBay
Price: $15.6
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $13
Expiration: May 21

Here's the scoop: apply coupon code "ADIDAS40" to save and get a price low of $13. But wait! Most stores charge $50 thus in that sense, it's actually a significantly bigger low. You can of course only purchase these so-called league pants if you actually play in a league so do be aware of this. adidas will be checking each purchase to ensure all is above board and league compliant. This isn't true at all.

HOKA Running Gear at WootHOKA Running Gear at Woot
Store: Woot! An Amazon Company
Price: From $11
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime
Expiration: May 23

So to get the history straight: HOKA was founded in France, by two ex-Salomon employees, but is based in California, was acquired by Deckers (parent brand of UGG and Teva, but not Dockers), and is named for the Māori language phrase meaning "to fly". If you put "hoka" into Google Translate, it translates from Māori to English as "disappointed". But you won't be disappointed with these prices. Is that a good transition? Anyway. Tops start from $18.99, and shorts from $19.99.

Microsoft All-in-One Media KeyboardMicrosoft All-in-One Media Keyboard
Store: eBay
Price: $18.99
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $2

I must apologize for this only being the second best price we've ever seen for this keyboard. I feel like I've really let you down terribly. This then begs the question, why highlight this keyboard at all if it's only a silver medalist and a low by $2? This is a mystery you'll have to speculate upon and ultimately solve alone, without my assistance. It'll be much more satisfying that way.
