1. 20% off: Our No.1 pick for laptop stands
If you’ve been working from home this year, chances are, you’ve probably struggled with finding the perfect set-up for your makeshift “office.” By investing in the Rain Design mStand, our all-time favorite laptop stand, you can turn your at-home desk into the perfect workspace. Once $49.90, it’s down to $39.95, falling 20% from its retail price. Considering that it’s going for as much as $52 at other retailers like Walmart, that’s a great deal. While we were initially skeptical of the design (you can’t adjust the height and it’s not exactly portable), it comes with rubber grips and a useful lip that helped to keep our laptop in place on our desk, and the pre-set angle was surprisingly perfect, so our tester didn’t have any neck pain. Additionally, there’s a decent amount of space underneath the stand, which is helpful for making the most of storage on your desk.
2. Save up to 43%: Our best value pick for women’s slippers
While the UGG Scuffette II slides ($89.95) are all-time favorite slippers, Dearfoams’ Sydney scuffs were our best value pick for their stylish look and cozy feel. These lookalike UGGs are made from 100% top-quality sheepskin and managed to keep our tester’s feet warm and dry. Additionally, they were easy to slide on and off (if a bit stiff), due to the clog-like design. The rubber sole even makes it so they’re able to be worn indoors or outside if you need to run out to the mailbox or car. They’re on sale from as low as $39.99 in the gray hue in wide sizing, but prices vary depending on your desired color and shoe size. Note that there may be shipping delays on select options.
3. Down 21%: Our favorite traditional mop
If your new year’s resolution is to keep your home clean, check out our favorite traditional mop, the O-Cedar EasyWring micofiber spin mop. Normally $37.99, it’s now $29.98 for a 21% markdown. In testing, we loved a multitude of its features, ranging from the removable mop head that could easily be tossed in the wash to the spinning mechanism that allowed us to wring out excess water while mopping. More importantly, however, of all the models we tested, it was the most effective of the bunch and the simplest to use, beating out even the Swiffer WetJet Mop ($31.70). All in all, it worked quite well on everyday spills and messes on a range of floors, including hardwood, tile and linoleum.
4. A 44% discount: This value pack of top-rated essential oils
This six-pack of Lagunamoon essential oils, once $15.99, is just $8.99 when you check the additional 10% coupon located beneath the price.The perfect starter kit for anyone who recently picked up or received an oil diffuser, it comes with six 10-milliliter bottles of oil in lemongrass, peppermint, orange, eucalyptus, tea tree and lavender (my personal favorite!). I nabbed this exact pack a few months ago to add to my collection, and I absolutely adore it. You can put a few droplets into your diffuser, dab a bit on your wrists or even add some to your bath or shower for optimal relaxation. Plus, it’s garnered a 4.4-star rating from nearly 64,000 (!) Amazon shoppers, who also adore its calming scents.
5. 7% off: This mini cast-iron skillet set
Check it out: You can grab this three-pack of 3.5-inch mini lodge cast-iron skillets, once $19.25, for $17.99, so you’ll pay just $6 for each. (Note that you can buy them separately for slightly less right now at Hobby Lobby.) We hailed the brand’s larger pre-seasoned skillet, the Lodge Classic 12-inch ($28.62) as our best value pick thanks to its durable build, affordable price point and deep design. The brand recommends using these smaller 3.5-inch skillets for yummy side dishes or desserts, especially since they’re pre-seasoned, meaning that cooking oil is already baked right into the iron. This three-piece collection also has a 4-star rating from more than 100 Amazon shoppers, who loved it for decorating and cooking baking.
