The Blawgirl crawls the Interwebz to find steals and deals for the frugal law student and the competitive bargain shopper. Find a new Frugal Finds 11:30 (ish) p.m. PST every Monday through Saturday! Also, each post is updated as I come across items. You’re welcome.
- Sin City starting at $24. If you’ve had just enough of the squealing around this whole Swine Flu Outbreak, head over to lovely Nevada, which has reported less than two cases in the piggy pandemic. Expedia.com currently has Las Vegas hotel rooms starting at just $24 per night. Travel must be completed by May 10, and additional restrictions and blackout dates may apply. The hotels on the list, at three stars and above, are pretty good deals. The Sahara, at the north end of the strip, is a decent hotel and starts at $24. The Imperial Palace, also a three star, is smack dab in the center of the strip and goes for $35.

- Free sex. Today only, in honor of Mother’s Day, Dealsclick.com has Sex and the City: The Movie on DVD for free with $4.99 for shipping. (via DealNews)
- They’re beautiful. iTunes free music video download of the week features a duet with James Blunt and Italian pop singer Laura Pausini. If you’re a fan of Blunt’s angst-ridden falcetto, “Primavera Anticipada” is worth checking out. Wait. A song about anticipating pasta primavera? Nope. The title actually translates to “Spring, Come Early”. The song featured at iTunes is actually the Spanish version of the song, originally done in Italian. On a side note: Am I the only one thinks it would be a whole new level of awesome for a duet in Italian about pasta?
- It’s all about Angel. Forget Edward Cullen. I like my angsty vampires older, manlier and with more body hair than a Japanese schoolgirl. Which is why I would pick the Angel series, created by geek god Joss Whedon, over the Twilight books movie any day. Today only, Amazon.com has a great deal on the DVD box set of the entire Angel series for $56.99 (List: $139.98), which comes with all five seasons, a letter to fans from Whedon himself and free shipping. Here’s are two of my favorite scenes from the series!
Once you’re done getting a tissue, here’s one of the funnier moments.
