    Set includes a comforter, shams, sheet set, pillowcases, and a decorative pillow.

    Promising review: "This bed in bag is very beautiful and affordable. You get so much for such a low price. I bought the King size for my bedroom and my friend saw it and her first impression was WOW. So I got her the Queen size and her eyes almost popped out of her head.. she loved it. The quality is good, the stitches are ok. Nothing is wrong with either size I got and the color is not very bright. It is mellow and just right." β€”Nat

This pandemic causes stressful times so trying to make my house more homey, relaxing and positive vibes. It looks beautiful as a night-light. I have one in each nightstand and my husband says he sleeps better as he suffers from asthma and says this helps. It has a dimmer and you can control the lighting. Love it. Have two in bedroom, kitchen and living room." β€”Sandy

    Price: $12.96 (originally $24.08)

    5. A set of multi-colored LED light strips that you can control with your smartphone to set the mood in any room. Oh, and they cost less than your Starbucks order.

    Yellow LED lights behind a bed frame to show ambiance

    Promising review: "What is there to say? $12.99...high quality, great adhesive, actually useful as a light due to excellent brightness, all the adjustable settings you could want, customizable preset lighting profiles for all times of day and different uses, can buy multiple sets and sync them together, remote control all settings from the Monster App, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth/Voice Control!!! Not a professional lighting setup. But pretty dang close to it. Buy this. You won't regret it." β€” CmpbllSoupCmpbllSoup

    Price: $12.88

    The trash and recycling bin in a kitchen in the color stainless steel

    Promising review: "This trash can has been great! It seemed like a lot of money to spend on a trash can, but I wanted something that was nice-looking but did not cost $200 like many name brands. I like that the trash can is not bulky, but still fits my two 13-gallon trash bags inside. Plus, it helps us recycle more. It has checked all of the boxes for us." β€”happyshopper

    Price: $89.98 (available in two colors)

    7. A cozy sherpa blanket because this is *so* darn cozy, some reviewers needed to use caps lock when describing how much they love it.

    The blanket on a couch in the color gray

    Promising review: "This blanket is so comfortable! You won't find a blanket softer than this! We all love to cuddle up in it, even our dog. This blanket looks great on my couch and at the foot of my bed. Highly recommend!" β€”spmichgirl

    Price: $8.88 (available in five colors)

    8. A nine-piece, nonstick cookware set to replace the ratty old frying pan you have been using since college.

    The cookware set in the color red

    The set includes a 7" Saute Pan, 9" Covered Deep Saute Pan, 1 Qt Covered Sauce Pan, 2 Qt Covered Sauce Pan, and a 4 Qt Covered Dutch Oven.

    Promising review: "This cookware set is everything I needed. I wish I found this item sooner! It's lightweight, easy to cook and clean in. I had to throw away my old set because the quality wasn't the best, and the paint on the pans begin to fade and discolor onto the food I was cooking. I LOVE this set because it's one of the few I found online that didn't include the cooking utensils with the set. I exclusively needed the cookware set and am a happy customer." β€”Sonya

    Price: $19.88 (available in champagne)

    9. An impressive 16-piece dinnerware set that will leave your guests oohing and aahing. Plus, they won't burn your hand when you take them out of the microwave.

    The dinnerware set in the color teal

    The set includes four square dinner plates, four square dessert plates, four bowls, and four mugs.

    Promising review: "I read a lot of reviews before selecting these dishes, and I am very happy with the purchase. They are very heavy and sturdy dishes. One of our main concerns, being able to microwave, is not a problem at all. Some dishes get exceedingly hot in the microwave, but these are reasonable. Reheating a serving of something is not a problem at all. And interesting to note, something that I did not see in the description, is that these dishes say underneath that they are actually OVEN safe. That gives you an idea of the heavy-duty quality. I have not tried the oven, but it does say you can do it. Very happy with my purchase and would recommend to others." β€”kirbykrew

    Price: $37.03 (originally $50; available in six colors)

    10. A stunning glass butter dish and salt and pepper shaker set for adding a level of elegance to your kitchen decor. Biscuits, anyone?

    The butter dish and the salt and pepper shaker in the color turquoise

    Promising review: "The quality that this set is made of is awesome, the color is adorable, it reminds me of that kitchen in the country where grandma would bake biscuts, cook greens and fried chicken. If you want a bit of the country I highly recommend this product." β€”MaDukes

    Price: $17.42 (originally $19.99; available in two colors)

    Promising review: "I was amazed at the quality of this towel! It is soft, absorbent, a good size and weight. It dries thicker than it was when purchased, and has a lovely double border design and soft lustrous color. I am so pleased with these towels that I ordered another set online....the quality and price would be hard to beat anywhere!" β€”Barbara

    Price: $7.72 (available in eleven colors)

    12. A super cute mini-fridge so you can effectively avoid your roommates while working from home.

    The mini fridge in the color pink on top of a bookshelf

    Promising review: "Looks exactly like the picture I love it so much. Can fit six sprite cans and I even got one for friends birthday. The knob can turn unlike a lot of affordable mini fridges and the color is so beautiful. The rack inside can be taken out if you wanna put larger things in it like water bottles or skincare items." β€”Ann

    Price: $39.99 (available in three colors)

    13. A clever, highly-versatile five-cube organizer that is perfect for filling any awkward dead spaces in your home.


    Promising review: "I have a niche by my stone fireplace and this fit the area perfectly, adding storage to an otherwise dead space. The grey color is sort of a dark driftwood tone, and the cubbies are a great size for fake logs and decor. It was easy to assemble all by myself, and I was even able to lift it into place on the 20-inch-high hearth (I am female, 61). I have purchased smaller sizes and shapes of this product and can recommend it without hesitation." β€”Karen

    Price: $96 (available in seven colors)

    14. A set of two metal wire baskets with chalkboard labels for organizing all of the small items lying around your home.

    The baskets filled with towels and books

    Promising review: "I cannot say enough good things about better homes and garden in general. These baskets are so affordable and perfect addition to my farmhouse feel. The medium size fits perfect in their cube storage. I used them to hide shoes and hats in my front entrance. Super deep and holds a lot of things. The wire is also good quality." β€”Alexis

    Price: $17.88

    15. A contemporary floor lamp that features three shelves perfect for holding knickknacks, plants, and framed photos β€” plus, reviewers say it is super easy to assemble.

    The lounger pillow in the color brownstone

    Promising review: "I needed a back pillow to sit comfortably in bed as I do my online classes late at night. This pillow was the best solution as stacking pillows behind my back was becoming very uncomfortable. I will also mention that I have back problems, so the pillow stacking method was aggravating my back. This pillow has helped reduced that unneeded pain." β€”DeeD

    Price: $15.87 (available in five colors)

    17. A string of glass bulbs to light up your patio with a beautiful, warm glow. According to reviewers, they are durable enough to withstand the coming winter weather.

    The string lights

    Promising Review: "We have had our lights for over two years now. I purchased four boxes in case I wanted to add to or replace them if they stopped making them after the season. Glad to see they are still making them. Ours have been outside in the weather and we have had one light bulb break from a storm but all lights are working. Just had to replace that one bulb. These are good lights that last." β€”Jessica

    Price: $12.78

    18. A comfortable, machine-washable kitchen mat that will support your feet and back as you whip up dinner.

    Price: $6.25 (available in two sizes and two colors)

    19. A 10-piece set of mixing bowls and lids so you can finally organize that messy cabinet filled mismatched containers. With two stunning patterns to choose from, they will look stellar in your fridge and cabinets.

    The mixing bowl set in the pattern country garden

    Promising review: "These bowls are wonderful! The sizes of theses bowls are great, if you're having a big party/BBQ, the biggest bowl will work well for anything. I just used for a punch bowl that's how big it is. The lids for these fit tight and the bottom grips the surface that you're working on so they stay put. Well worth the money and so many uses for each sized bowl!! They are also pretty!" β€”Grandma2to4

    Price: $29.50 (originally $49.99; available in two colors)

    20. A hot-air popcorn machine for the Halloween movie marathon on your calendar.

    The popcorn machine in the color yellow

    Promising review: "I LOVE this air popper! I was spending at least $6-$8 a week buying organic popcorn from our local grocer and there were always a ton of unpopped kernels on the bottom of the bag. This air popper pops 98% of the kernels and does a great job! The kids love watching it pop and it takes only 3 minutes. Just don't use a shallow bowl when popping, as those last kernels can really fly out of there easily." β€”SoCalrunnergirl

It's the perfect white for kids....not stark white (which helps with stains), but still a pretty white that goes with everything. The tassels are low maintenance (they are small braids, so you don't have to comb them out all the time) and the pattern is bold and makes a pretty statement." β€”Maggie

    Price: $63 (originally $100.08; available in ten sizes)

    Promising review: "I purchased the Faberware Air Fryer, after reading the reviews from my Consumer Reports magazine, which gave this Air Fryer high fives. I have prepared several foods in the air fryer, and the food without all the grease is fantastic. I love the air fryer, and now, I do not have to turn on the oven for preparing meals.

There was no smell as I have read about with other mattresses that are packaged in boxed. After trying it out, I found it was better than I had hoped. I have been having back issues and this mattress allowed me to have a good night's sleep after a couple of weeks of not being able to sleep. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a comfortable night's rest...It is soft but with good support." β€”McKinley

    Price: $104 (available in seven sizes and three levels of thickness)

    28. A blackout curtain so you can sleep in long past the rising sun.

    The curtains in the color yellow

    Promising review: "All I can say is wow!! Bought these perfectly colored, cherry red curtains for my granddaughter's bedroom.

    Promising review: "I love this fireplace. It has a nice remote with it. It heats up the room very nicely. You can have both the heat and flame on or just enjoy the flame only to create a nice ambience in the room. The flame looks pretty realistic. Not bright orange like some. Another nice feature are the wheels on the bottom to be able to move it from room to room. I would certainly buy this again. I love it!" β€”Kailo

    Price: $129 (originally $199)

    31. A durable, heavyweight shower curtain that won't touch you while you wash your hair.

    Hanging shower curtain in the color ivory

    Promising review: "I am sooo happy with this purchase. I've always bought the cheap lightweight liner not understanding why I'd need a heavyweight one. Recently, we changed shower curtain rods and the liner was always kinda blowing in the shower and that mess is cold when you're taking a shower and it touches you. I figured the price was worth potentially fixing that and it did! It feels like a million bucks and I highly doubt I'll need to replace as often as the lightweight. It's thick but not super heavy but heavy enough to not blow in on you. I'm really happy with this choice, would buy it again and would recommend it to all my friends."Β β€”Hollyraspberry

    Price: $15 (originally $20; available in four colors)
