    Here are just some of the awesome products you can get on sale right now:

    1. A 17-piece Cuisinart aluminum nonstick cookware set, because "I only own one pan" is no longer a valid excuse for not having people over for dinner.

    The pans, pots, and skillets, which are all a dark gray color, with metal handles and clear glass lids

    The set includes 8-inch and 10-inch skillets, 12-inch covered skillet, 3.5 qt. covered saute pan with helper handle, 1-qt., 2-qt. and 3-qt. covered saucepans, 4-qt. covered dutch oven, multi-steamer insert, 8-qt. covered stockpot, and seven lids.

    Price: $249 (originally $670)

    2. A slim, faux-distressed console table that looks French country-stylish and also has four working drawers, so you can stow away all the very important things in your life that are neither French nor stylish (looking at you, leash and doggy doo bags).

    Promising review: "Better than pictured! We bought the cream, and the color is great, the finish is smooth, and the distressing looks good. The drawers work well. We have a smaller guest bedroom and wanted a narrow, long table for our flat screen TV, and this table is perfect!" —Diana

    Price: $275.99+ (originally $685, available in three colors)

    3. A pillow-top hybrid mattress that lets you have the best of both sleep-related worlds—it combines memory foam and pocketed coil design, for a mattress that's supportive but also has a soft side.

    The mattress, which is thick

    Promising review: "I was expecting a bed-in-a-box type product for the price, but I was pleasantly surprised! The mattress is prefect—supportive, but with a pillow top that cushions me when I sleep on my side so I no longer wake up with shoulder pain. Even my chiropractor noticed a difference after I'd had this be for only a few nights." —June

    Price: $314.99+ (originally $819+, available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king)

    Promising review: "Love my new GE over the range microwave oven. It was so easy to install! Looks great in my kitchen. Would recommend this microwave oven to anyone. The price was just right, too!" —Margarita

    The vacuum, which is bagless, and has a green-and-clear-plastic body

    Promising review: "This vacuum is AMAZING. I was skeptical, I won't lie. We have two large dogs and when its winter outside, they definitely bring it in. Paw prints everywhere. We also have a five-year-old.Constant mopping and sweeping. I used this the first night I received it, and I won't go back to anything else. To be able to sweep and mop all in one is SO helpful, especially with a busy schedule like ours. I am actually EXCITED to clean now!" —Michaela

    Price: $219.99 (originally $299.99)

    6. A Kelly Clarkson Home velvet wingback swivel chair with wheels, so you can combine "beautiful design" with "actually being able to move around your home office."

    The Roomba, which is circular and has small brushes that extend from it to clean

    Promising review: "This is a game changer for me. Saves me so much time each week. I can be doing something else while my vacuuming gets done. Once it mapped my house, I can easily pick the rooms I want it to vacuum. It does an amazing job. Totally satisfied!" —Colleen

    Price: $399 (originally $599.99)

    9. A set of room-darkening rod pocket curtains, because you shouldn't have to choose between decor you like and actually sleeping past 6 a.m. (UGH, EAST-FACING ROOMS!!)

    Promising review: "It’s the exact color and look from the pictures. The lift top works wonderfully and it was easy to build. I was worried it would match or that it would come broken but it’s in great condition. Bigger storage space in the top than I thought there would be." —Mackenzie

    Anonymous/ Wayfair

    Promising review: "This TV stand is very sturdy and heavy, so we know it will last us a long time. The color is a really cool brushed gray and I love that it has so much storage. It works perfectly in our apartment living room for now but would also be great in a game room or den area because it’s low to the ground so the tv is at a eye level. Overall I would say that if this is your style that it is a great and solid piece!" —Megan

    The rug, which is rectangular and tan
    Shavon/ Wayfair / Via

    Promising review: "I have this rug in front of both main entryways to my home. It gives the look of sisal, but can easily be scrubbed and washed off with a hose. I placed double-sided carpet tape on the corners so the rug would not slide on my hardwood floors. I’m very pleased with the quality and would buy again." —Katie

    Price: $227.24+ (originally $389, available in three colors)

    The couch, which has square arms and back, in pink

    Promising review: "Love my new sofa! It was fairly easy to put together and as the other reviews stated, it is firm, but it is not uncomfortable. This isn’t your 'sink in, swallow you whole' type of sofa—it’s more causal extra seating that’s extremely pleasing to the eye. I love how vibrant the color is. I’ve had my eye on this sofa for YEARS and happy that I finally made the decision to purchase it." —Juanise

    Price: $395.99+ (originally $669, available in six colors)

    The cart in black

    Promising review: "I love my new island! It is just the perfect fit for my new apartment. I have a small kitchen area, and this island gives me not only added counter space, but thanks to the drop-down leaf, I have an additional eating space, as well! Perfect for baking! UPDATE: everyone who comes to visit asks me where, I found my island." —Pam

    Price: $289.99+ (originally $349.99, available in two colors)

    26. A three-piece vanity set with dresser, stool, and mirror, because having a dedicated place to get ready (instead of just hunching over the bathroom sink) will change your morning.

    The vanity, which has two pull-out drawers and a round mirror on top, in white

    Promising review: "So cute! The top part (top and drawers) came already assembled, just had to assemble the stool and the legs and mirror! Took me 15 minutes. It's not very big, but it is perfect for all my make up, hair stuff and more. It can even turn into a desk if you don't put the mirror up. I love it." —Karine
