    Amazon’s Video Game Deal of the Dayis a hot one: LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4for just $32.49 for consoles (Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 3; regularly $49.99) and $19.49 for handhelds (Nintendo DS, Sony PSP) and PC. This would be a great buy to stash away for the holidays, and I’d get it for Alex if we weren’t all Lego’d out on Star Wars,Batman,and Indiana Jones(we went a little overboard when we discovered the difficulty level was manageable for a five-year-old). Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    Also at Amazon, the Droid IIis just one penny with a new service plan. I was an existing Verizon customer when I got my Droid through Amazon a few months ago, and I had no troubles renewing my contract and switching service from my old phone to the Droid. And the Droid has been great, although I must admit I’m not entirely certain it’s worth the $30/month for the data plan. On the other hand, the GPS function through Google Maps has been a total lifesaver when we’re going to places we’ve never been.

      I bought the SteamFast canister steamer because it can mop but also handle other tasks (bathrooms). I got it from Walmart online:

      I like it but the brush and scrubbing pad attachments do have a short lifespan, as several reviewers note. I've been meaning to buy the garment attachment from the manufacturer so we can also use it as a clothing steamer, but just haven't gotten around to it.
