Counting down the days until the weekend hits? Don’t worry, so are we. Online shopping is the perfect distraction when your mind starts to wander at work or at home, especially since you can score some of the best sales ever right now. Whether you’re stocking up for household essentials or splurging on a kitchen appliance you’ve had your eye on for a while (ahem, an Instant Pot), shopping for weekday deals can be a fun way to make the most of your time.
As dedicated product and shopping experts, we love finding great deals on items we know will be worth your while. We spend an entire year testing everything from TVs to moisturizing creams, and we use price tracking tools to figure out just how good a sale really is. Today, we found some awesome deals on stuff that can make your every day life better, including sleep masks, toilet paper, and so much more.
1. Under $10: Our favorite sleep mask that’ll help you get a better night’s sleep
Whether you’re looking to relax with a mid-day nap or you’re tired of waking up early because of the sun, having an eye mask nearby can be a tremendous help. This Nidra sleep mask is the best one we’ve ever tested–not only does it offer a contoured feel, but it also stays on throughout the night. Because the shape itself is rounded, it won’t add pressure to your eyes while you’re trying to sleep, either. This mask is an especially good investment if you work the graveyard shift and have to sleep during daylight hours on the regular.
2. Under $15: This cult-favorite skincare line at their lowest price ever
Reviewers on Amazon absolutely love LilyAna Naturals, and right now you can save more than ever before on some of the company’s most popular products. Whether you’re looking for a replenishing facial cream or a moisturizer that can help reduce the look of fine lines, dark spots, and acne scars, skincare products from LilyAna Naturals can help. These paraben-free products are made with organic ingredients and are also gentle on virtually all skin types. Thanks to an on-page coupon, you can get $5 some of their top-rated items. In the process, you can also give your complexion the extra boost of hydration and nutrients it needs to look and feel great every day.
3. Under $30: The best toilet paper ever at an amazing low price
Stocking up on toilet paper is never a bad idea, especially if you’ve got a big household and like to buy in bulk to be prepared. Right now, you can get a really good deal on Charmin-brand toilet paper on Amazon. It’s the best toilet paper we’ve ever tried, and since you can get a big pack shipped to you directly for $3 less than normal using an on-page coupon, this is definitely one of the most cost-efficient deals we’ve found today.
4. Under $50: This top-rated weighted blanket at an incredible bargain
At first glance, a weighted blanket might seem like a weird idea. Basically, these blankets apply soothing pressure while you sleep, giving you the sensation of being hugged or swaddled. For restless sleepers (and the poor folks who constantly get woken up next to them), they’re life-changing, since they make you less likely to toss and turn at night. But they’re also good in general, since they can make you feel cozy and bundled up while you snooze.
There are all kinds of options to choose from, but today, you can get an awesome discount on one of the top-rated weighted blankets on Amazon. If you order the 15-pound blanket for Twin/Full beds, you can get it for $10 less than its normal price. This is one deal you definitely don’t want to sleep on, either, since this is the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this one.
5. Under $100: Everyone’s favorite Instant Pot at it’s second lowest price ever
Look, it just doesn’t get any better than an Instant Pot. Once you get one, you’ll immediately see what all the fuss is about, because you can use them for everything. Seriously. These popular multi-cookers work as a slow cooker, a rice cooker, a pressure cooker—you name it. And today, you can snag one for the second lowest price we’ve ever seen. You can even go big and grab the 8-quart version, which is $99 right now, making it $20 less than its standard price.
