Hello all! Welcome to this week’s roundup of awesome + useful products currently at a big discount on Amazon. From the bigger investment items your home needs to the things that are nice to have, we’ll be letting you know when the stuff you’ve been wanting anyway has gone on sale (sometimes up to 78% off) so you can get the best deal possible! Thanks for reading — let’s jump right it!
62% off. I’ve been trying to be more intentional with my skincare lately. I was talking to a friend about getting rid of blackheads (those nose strips just never seem to work for me!), and she said she swears by using a face scrubber every day. This one has great reviews and is less than 20 bucks today!
65% off. I love French press coffee, and I think it especially makes sense to have a French press if you’re often making small batches, whether you live alone or like the occasional afternoon pick-me-up. This one looks super nice and has over 4,000 positive reviews on Amazon. Definitely worth checking out at this awesome sale price!
52% off. I am pretty good about taking my lunch to work most days, but I had a near catastrophe the other day thanks to not owning a proper lunch box (I don’t want to get into it, but it involved leftover beef stew and a plastic grocery bag…not pretty). This one (specified “for adults” lol) looks really nice and professional, and I like that it also has a shoulder strap for easy carrying. Plus, it has food-grade insulation, so it’d be safe to store food in for a few hours even if you won’t have access to a fridge.
61% off. Peter and I are moving to a bigger apartment next month, which means we need to start looking for furniture and decor for our first-ever guest room. I am beyond excited, but I’m a little wary of getting wrapped up in the excitement of it all and accidentally spending wayyy too much. I’ve been on the lookout for a pretty comforter/duvet cover, and this one just might fit the bill — especially at that sale price!
60% off. Kitchen scissors might seem a little unnecessary, but trust me, if you cook even a little every week, they will absolutely come in handy. They are much sharper than office scissors, making them better for cutting open all kinds of packaging. They’re great for breaking up poultry, too. These are a great investment, and they’re more than half off today.
52% off. I can personally testify as to the amazingness that is Sharpie pens. I also think writing lists and taking notes are more fun when you do them in color. So this might be a bit of a splurge, but $7 is a small treat — and I think having anything that makes work and organizing your home life a little brighter is worthwhile to spend on.
78% off. This is an awesome home-bar set (11 pieces!), especially if you are the kind of person who likes to wow guests with your ~MiXoLoGy~ skills. But the retail price is a bit steep, even for hardcore cocktail enthusiasts. I’m definitely thinking of a few people that this would be a great gift for — and the sale price right now is pretty tough to beat!
38% off. I’m sorry, but how handy are these?! They are drawer organizers that adjust to fit the actual size of your kitchen drawer so that there’s no wasted space. Which I currently have a lot of, because our kitchen drawer organizer is smaller than the drawer, but doesn’t leave enough room for much else. Honestly, I didn’t know I needed these until I saw them.
54% off. Here is another semi-frivolous item to make your work life and desk space a little bit prettier. I love having prettier versions of random little things, like matching stainless steel pushpins and brightly colored paper clips. They’re things I need to have anyway, so why not enjoy looking at them a bit more? These rose gold clips are so pretty, and would make an awesome little “just thinking of you” gift for a friend (or yourself tbh).
60% off. I am not remotely the world’s biggest crafter, but I find uses for xacto knives all the time — in holiday decorating, gift wrapping, apartment updates, you name it. And the thing I find most appealing about this set is not the multiple types of blades (though I’m sure those are great for cut-paper projects and other crafts), but rather the carrying case. Mine just sits idly in my craft bin, and I’m starting to seriously rethink that.
