I am now a Woot! minion! (Intro Post)

Have you guys heard of  Woot: One Day, One Deal. before? It is this awesome web site that sells one item per day at a reduced price. Once it sells out, you're out of luck! You never know what product will be for sale. And the best part is that shipping is only $5, not matter WHAT the product is - a TV, a vacuum, sheets, toothbrushes, water bottles, cameras... shipping is only $5.

But maybe the best part of reading Woot!, yes, reading is the hilarious product descriptions. Earlier this month, they sold Isotoner Men's Gloves. Here is part of the product description: That’s right, buddy. You can read the sign, right? I’ve expanded my “no shirt, no shoes, no service” policy to include “no gloves.”
My place, my rules. You don’t like it, you got two choices. Take your business somewhere else and never darken my door again, or buy a pair of these Isotoner Men’s Gloves I happen to have conveniently for sale next to the door.
Save your sob story for Nora Ephron. I got a business to run here and if I decide I don’t want to look at your mangled-up fingernails and the veiny backs of your hands, my word is law, got it? I don’t care what color they are, or whether they’re leather or suede. If Walnut Leather tinkles your bell, go for it. If you’re more of a Suede Taupe guy, I got no beef with that. But let’s make one thing clear: your hands will be covered or they’ll be out on the street.
Woot also has a couple of sister Web sites with the same "one day, one deal concept" -  kids.woot is my favorite. I have bought several Halo sleep sacks there at a GREAT price. They also sell a lot of Melissa and Doug toys and Thomas the Tank Engine toys.
shirt.woot sells cute and funny t-shirts. Many of them are user designed - they have a weekly design contest. Jeff's favorite t-shirt - in an ugly sweater pattern - is from here. You can also order the most popular shirts for as long as they are in the top 20 in  "the reckoning"
sellout.woot is the bargain basement - they sell some remaining items at cheaper prices and also have users submit deals.

As a minion, I will be giving you information and posting some of the daily deals from Woot! and it's sister sites.I ma so excited about it, since this is one of the sites I love and check every day.
