    From deep discounts on designer grills and the vacuums of your dreams, to marvelous markdowns on everyday lifehacks like storage and easy pet cleaning solutions, this sale's got you covered with everything you need for a happier and less-hectic home.

    Here are some of the products you're ~definitely~ going to want to check out:

    1. A mini ceramic charcoal grill for when you want to have a cookout with just a few people. It has everything folks love about The Big Green Egg Mini Max including excellent heat retention and a cooking surface just right for a couple steaks or four burgers. It's also almost $400 cheaper right now.

    Walmart

    A designer dupe but make it BBQ, with savings is enough to make over 300 hamburgers. I love saving money and am so here for it! Since it's charcoal, it's super-portable (no more gas to worry about.... for your grill; unfortunately, it can't help you with that one flatulent family member). It has a temperature monitor and adjustable vents to control the heat. The cast-iron stand is included.

    Promising review: "I've owned a large Big Green Egg for over 20 years. The quality is excellent and I love grilling/smoking on it. But cooking for me and my partner, the large egg is sometimes overkill. Firing it up for a couple steaks or pork chops seems extreme. I'd been looking at the BGE Mini Max but couldn't justify the price. The Joe Jr is the same size as the Mini Max, at a more budget friendly price. It was delivered to my home packaged very0well! I unpacked it and set it up on my deck. The quality is every bit as good at BGE it also includes standard the heat deflector, ash tool and grill gripper which are options on the BGE. I fired it up and did a reverse sear on a Tri Tip roast. It held 250° easily for the smoking period. I removed the roast, took out the deflector, opened the top and bottom vents fully. The temp quickly rose to over 600° for searing. The Tri tip turned out perfectly! I'm very pleased with this grill/smoker and would recommend it to anyone!" —Robert

    Price: $299.99 (originally $499.99)

    2. A feature-packed robot mop/vacuum so you can let a machine do all the hard work of keeping your floors clean despite the chaos of kids and pets. Not only will you be saving time and work, but it's also $650 cheaper than buying the comparable Roomba products.

    The robovac
    Walmart

    It will map your house, auto-empties, and wet-cleans as well as vacuums for extra cleaning oomph. The battery runs for two hours between charges, and it knows not only when to stop and recharge, but also how to get back to the charger. It's smart and efficient, like Rosie the Robot, but without all the sarcasm.

    If you wanted to get all that functionality out of a Roomba-brand product you'd actually need to buy two: the Roomba i7 and the Bravaa Jet M6, which will set you back $950 in total.

    Promising review: "This IHome AutoVac Nova is spectacular. It has completely changed my life. Messes are constant with three small kids and a large dog. This vacuum not only cleans the crumbs and fur, it collects the dust as well. I set a schedule and it does what it needs to. It works on hardwood, tile and carpet. The unit is smart enough to find it's charging station at the other end of my house when the battery is low. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone with a busy lifestyle. In total it probably took 20-30 minutes to unbox and set up. I don't think I'll ever manually vacuum or mop again!" —Mamax37

    Price: $299.99 (originally $599.99)

    3. A refurbished Dyson V8 cordless stick vac designed just for pet owners. It has extra suction to trap hair and dander, and an easy-empty dust reservoir that forces the debris out handsfree. The best part is there's no cord, so you can go 45 minutes (probably enough for your whole house) without ever tripping on cord.

    The vacuum reaches under a dresser
    Walmart

    This product is *not* brand new, but it is half the price of a new one. A lot of people got it when they wanted a Dyson but didn't want to spend a whole bunch of money to do it. If you've ever craved of one of these beautifully-designed hard-sucking wonder-tools for yourself, now's the time to get your own.

    It tilts down almost flat, the motorized part detaches from the stick for handheld use, and it comes with several useful tools.

    Promising review: "Been impressed with the Dyson for years. Wanted to buy one for my kid's dorm, but they're pricey. This refurbished one is slightly scratched, but barely noticeable. Easy to assemble. Everything works fine. All attachments were included along with an automatic six-month warranty. That gives me piece of mind." —KimmerSemiColon

    Price: $199.99 (originally $279.99)

    4. 40% off a Pioneer Woman knife set available in all of Ree's favorite colors. It includes 11 knives to cover every possible everyday need.... plus scissors and a sharpener and a block, all for less than you could spend buying just one of the included items.

    The knife set  in the block, in a floral print. The knives and the block are all printed.
    Walmart

    They're hand-wash only, and in addition to colored handles they also come with rosewood handles and in a floral print that I think is just adorable.

    Here's what's in the set: an 8" chef's knife, an 8" bread knife, a 5" utility knife, a 3.5" paring knife, six 4.5" steak knives, a pair of scissors, an 8" sharpening tool, and a 6" signature Nakiri knife. The branded knife block is also included.

    Promising review: "I just love this knife set. Had my eyes on this particular one for a couple of years and finally decided to get it. Knives are nice and sharp and cut anything like butter — so smooth! It's enjoyable to cut food items now. Aesthetically beautiful, pleasing to the eye, and matches my many other PW items already had. Would recommend and also buy again." —PMR5

    Price: $39 (originally $69.97, available in eight colors).

    5. A robot laser pointer pet toy to entertain your darling kitty or doggo for hours. AI can never replace human love, but a little automation to save your wrists never hurt anybody.

    A cat plays with the toy
    Walmart

    It's activated by a button and runs for 15 minutes before shutting off on it's own. It's powered by 3-AA batteries.

    Promising review: "I got it for my cat but my dog won't let anyone play with it because it because she loves it so much. She rolls it around and has learned to push the button on and off. She spends (no lie) two to three hours with it. We have to take it away after an hour to give her a break. The batteries last a long time in them. I am so so happy I purchased this. I would by it again and again and again." —Tammy

    Price: $15.95 (originally $19.95)

    6. A six-quart Instant Pot to replace basically every cooking appliance you have while making food up to 70% faster. I use mine almost every day and it's so easy that even my lazy self cooks with it every day. I've saved a ton on take-out.

    the instant pot
    Walmart

    If you're new to Instant Pots, welcome! It's basically a countertop device, with a metal pot and heating element inside, and a special lid that works with a computer to create or release pressure inside. It's kind of like if a pressure cooker and a crockpot had a very precious baby. When they say it's nine appliances in one, they're not kidding: it's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, and sauté-cooker, with sous vide capabilities and sterilizer capabilities. 

    Both the pot and the lid are dishwasher safe and easy to clean that way or by hand (I've done both; I hate hand-washing but it's really not bad). The handle on the top, locking lid, and detachable cord make it easy to travel with.

    I have reassuring news in case you're leery because of how dangerous traditional pressure cookers can be: the Instant Pot has a number of features, including auto-lock and smart pressure regulation, to keep you safe. I have used mine several hundred times, without any issues whatsoever. You can't open it while it's pressurized, and if something goes haywire like it gets bumped or dropped, it stays locked and de-pressurizes until it's safe to open it back up. It's safer than using a stovetop, toaster oven, crockpot, or air fryer.

    Promising review: "I became curious about Instant Pot after watching a lot of videos on how easy it is to cook with them. Then I finally stumbled onto this link. For the right price, I decided to buy it, and it's the best decision I've ever made. As soon as I got it, I used it and the food came out nicely. Cleaning is easy too!" —Pops

    Price: $59 (originally $99)

    7. A fold-down futon upholstered in trendy classic velvet, which unfolds to about a twin-sized sleeping area. It's an affordable way to add a little extra versatility for occasional guests for less than the price of a few nights in a hotel; it's also pretty stylish as well.

    Walmart

    The unfolded size is 38" by 69," which is just six inches shy of the length of a twin mattress.

    Promising review: "This little couch bed is exactly what we needed for our game room. It can be used as a guest bed if needed. We don't really have an extra bedroom, so having a multiuse couch is very helpful. I love that the arms on and off so easily, and can be put out of the way when someone wants to sleep on it. It's pretty comfortable to lay in, too, as long as you don't lay right on the crack." —Shane

    Price: $295 (originally $389.99, available in seven colors)

    8. A metal fire pit that comes with a screen top so the only sparks that'll be flying will be between you and your boo while you cozy up on a cool summer night.

    the fire pit
    Walmart

    It's two feet wide and 16 inches tall without the lid; about two feet with the lid on. If you don't have a measuring tape handy, it's about the same as an extra large moving box from Home Depot, Uline, or U-Haul — just right for a cozy night out on the patio.

    Promising review: "Great purchase! So pretty and stylish. My kid and I assembled it in about twenty mins. I love the cover with the mesh screens because it keeps flying sparks away from you and makes it safer. Simply remove the cover for marsh mellow roasting. Very light and easy to move. Very well worth the money." —Awesomepit

    Price: $99.99 (originally $159.99)

    9. A dehumidifier that'll make your basement dry and mold-free and save money on your A/C bills this summer.

    The white and gray dehumidifier
    Walmart

    Dry heat is more comfortable than wet heat; that's science. Although removing moisture from the air doesn't change the temperature, it does let your natural cooling system work better by allowing more perspiration to evaporate, making ~you~ cooler using way less energy that it would take to run your A/C system. 

    This 50-pint capacity unit is the right size for between 800 and 1200 square feet depending on the baseline humidity; that's enough for an average two-bedroom apartment or a small house. The capacity is higher if hooked up to a drain.

    This unit includes wheels so it is easy to move around.

    Promising review: "Low energy usage; excellent moisture-elimination system; enables us to keep A/C settings higher than previous years. This appliance is a money saver for small areas' utility bills." —Rick H

    Price: $250 (originally $396.53)

    10. An electric bump-feed string trimmer to keep your lawn neatly edged and weed-free without annoying your neighbors with excess sound and emissions.

    Walmart

    Make Hank Hill jealous with this two-speed battery-operated trimmer this summer. It's made by Hart, famous for rock-solid reliability. 

    String trimmers  — also known as weed whackers or weed eaters — spin a special string really fast to trim stuff down. Bump feed models differ from their automatically-advancing counterparts because they advance the string with just a tap on the ground instead of on its own. You have to keep things moving yourself, but they're also simpler mechanically simpler and therefore easier to fix.

    This one is battery operated, so it's not only quieter than a gas model, it also doesn't put off any toxic exhaust. 

    Promising review: "Using right side up or sideways, it's a great trimmer. Easy to use and move from up to sideway for trimming along the edge of the lawn with no debris flying in my face. Comes with everything you need to start trimming including the battery and the charger, instructions and easy to assemble. Great deal. Long enough handle for the taller people in our home too. Great little trimmer." —OR2020

    Price: $98 (originally $158)

    11. A 100-ounce capacity automatic pet fountain with an activated charcoal water filter to prevent bacterial growth and keep your fur baby hydrated.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "This unit is awesome. I got the large size because of having more than a few cats and I don't have to refill it every other day. The main reasons I got this model was because of capacity and how it has an open top. This is where they like to drink from. It is also super quiet." —John

    Price: $23.99 (originally $25.99)

    12. A multi-stage HEPA air filter with enough capacity for a large room. It has a smart sensor and reviewers rave about how quiet it is.

    The filter in black at the top of some stairs next to a plant. You can see it's about as tall as the basket the plant is in, or about half the height of the stair rail.
    Walmart

    The four-stage filtration system captures and reduces up to 99.97% of particles in the air, including pollen, pollutants and other allergens; it also reduces volatile organic compounds and reduces odor. The pre-filter is washable. A pollution sensor uses colors to tell you how clean or dirty your air is, and it can run with three fan speeds set manually or according to the sensor readings. It also has a sleep timer and filter lifetime-indicator. 

    Promising review: "Very quiet. We use it in our office on automatic. It occasionally turns the speed up on its own when the air quality changes, which is awesome because we know it is helping us breath clean air. I researched a lot of models and am very happy to have selected this one. Highly recommend it." —Brandy

    Price: $149 (originally $249.99, also available in in white)

    13. A compact combo single-serve and 12-cup coffee maker that does everything a Keurig can do without the waste, and can also make enough sweet pick-me-up java to caffeinate your whole department.

    The silver and black appliance
    Walmart

    It's got a timer, two hour auto-off so you don't burn-out the carafe, and a feature that lets you choose your brew strength. It's kind of like how coffee-makers used to be 20 years ago, with all the annoying stuff about them fixed.

    The water reservoirs for the single-serve and 12-cup portions are separate.

    Promising review: "Great product! Love the two-way brew. Really easy to use. Like the program timer, which makes mornings a little easier. The price was great for the quality. Would highly recommend. Also, not too big or bulky for my countertop. Exactly what I was looking for." —Nidia

    Price: $39.88 (originally $59.98)

    14. A dog bag that's carry-on sized and can fit enough food and supplies to keep your prized pet pampered for a week.

    the dog bag
    Walmart

    It has two big internal pocket, two zipping food containers, two collapsible bowls, mesh pockets on each side and inside the lid (with a zipper!), and a removable placemat for clean eatin'.

    Promising review: "Holds lots of food, toys and cleanup supplies. Three bowls hold enough food for my two large dogs that eat two cups of food. Went camping for three days and had food to spare. Really nice!" —Carey

    Price: $49.99 (originally $69.99)

    15. An electric trimmer you can use in the shower and with shaving cream! It has three spin-heads, and a precision edger to get the hair clear off where you want and also line-up nice neat edges.

    Walmart

    You can use it shaving cream and gel, and in the shower, if you want. It's cordless and the blade-cover tilts off for easy cleaning when it gets clogged.

    Promising reviews: "This is good for all types of hair. I use it on a soaped-up face, and it works well stopping razor bumps."DrewP

    Price: $89.95 (originally $129.99)

    16. A pair of reclining outdoor loungers to soak up some rays with good company. There's cupholders (four total!), the lockable recliner modes go from an upright chair to almost flat with little effort, and they fold up for simple toting to and from the beach.

    Two models sit on the chairs with a table between them
    Walmart

    Promising review: "These were priced better than competition, and truly are a comfort worth checking out. They fit perfectly beside each other on the deck, recline to multiple comfortable (not fully flat) positions, and include the side caddy with two cupholders, making for the ultimate relaxation without leaving the comforts of home. For those who are concerned, rust does happen, if left outside in the elements, so be aware of that. However, the chairs are easy to clean, store, and maintain comfort."Samachan

    Price: $99.99 (originally $169.99, available in 13 colors)

    17. A stand bag reviewers swear by because it's sturdy, has plenty of pockets, and is pretty easy to tote around.

    The bag in gray with yellow and black accents
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This bag is an awesome upgrade. The quality itself is really nice, and the stand is really sturdy. There are a lot of pockets for everything that you could need. Makes organizing really simple." —ML

    Price: $199.00 ($249.97, also available in black)

    18. A air fryer to make all your favorite fried classics in less time without the splatters and grease stains. It's a doozey for things like fries and chicken, plus there's all kinds of other great stuff you can do with it like make the best HotPockets you've ever had and reheat pizza perfectly.

    The product seen from above
    Walmart

    This is as basic as air fryers get: just a temperature control and a timer. There's even a handy guide of temperatures and cooking times on the top of it! That's all you really need to get started air frying.

    Promising review: May have found something to replace the oven. Love this." —Carrolyn

    Price: $39.99 (originally $59.99)

    19. A Lifestraw water filter and collapsible bottle so you can always have safe clean water to drink no matter where you are.

    The straw alone, the water bottle without the straw in it, and the straw being used to fill the bottle
    Walmart

    The filter will last for 500 gallons and removes 99.999999% of bacteria and 99.999% of parasites and microplasitcs from You can use it with or without the 22-ounce bottle. Use it for hiking, emergency preparedness, or to always have a filter on hand in case you forget to bring water with you while you're on the go.

    Promising review: "I've used this water bottle a couple times now and I have to say it's so convenient! It's collapsible so I usually leave it in my glovebox in case I forget a water bottle, and it saves me from using single use cups all the time! I also use it in bed because I know it won't spill if I toss it to the side! Has never leaked and can without a little bit of pressure. I usually use it without the filter because it's easier to tuck away and the filter is not usually needed. Happy I bought this, can't wait to travel with it!" —Kitty3876

    Price: $19.97 (originally $34.94)

    20. A pet washer with an attached soap reservoir to wet and suds-up your darling angel with all hands on ~dog~, because you never need to reach away to grab the shampoo. It has attachments to hook up to a shower, a sink, or an outdoor spigot. 96" of hose means that it has plenty of reach to get the job done.

    Walmart

    It attaches to the shower with a two-way converter so you can keep your shower head. If you have a Tushy: it's like the adaptor for that. It has three spray settings and you can toggle the shampoo on for soaping and off for rinsing.

    Promising review: "We all know that 'you took your hands off me to grab shampoo — bolt!” dogs. This is the prefect solution. Preload the handheld was sprayer head and one handed switch between settings. Shampoo setting does get them clean. Easy hang up with the included hanger. It is a keeper." —Babymains

    Price: $19.97 (originally $37.97)

    21. A classic five-gallon beverage cooler to keep the team hydrated on a hot day that also has a number of other potential uses, like brining a turkey come Thanksgiving time. That's practical... and then some!

    A model uses the cooler
    Jose Prado / Walmart

    It'll keep ice cold up to three days, the spigot is recessed and angled for easy pouring, the top is designed so it's ok to sit on it, and the plastic is UV resistant so you can keep it out in the sun all day with no worries.

    Promising review: "We bought this to brine turkeys for our smoker. It is PERFECT! We just had an 18-pound turkey in it with no problem. We bought the brine bags also and we put two bags lining the cooler so we can still use the cooler for drinks if needed. We throw in some ice and the turkey stays cold for 12 to 20 hours until it's time to smoke it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Great cooler! Thank you." —Julie

    Price: $19.97 (originally $25)

    22. A trunk for summer camp, college, or as a coffee table with a ton of extra storage.

    Walmart

    Promising review: "I like it. I'm using it as a coffee table and a place to store things. The locks are flimsy so it is by no means a SAFE but it's very nice looking and sturdy." —Daneen

    Price: $69.96 (originally $99.99, available in eight colors)

    23. A 42-piece set of plastic food containers that stack and snap together for efficient storage while you're not using them.

    The set, some full, some empty and stacked
    Walmart

    The set includes five .5-cup containers, four 1.25-cup containers, four two-cup containers, three three-cup containers, three five-cup containers, and seven-cup containers, plus lids for each. The set is top rack dishwasher-safe, and the bases can be put in the microwave without the tops.

    Promising review: "These just arrived and I love them so far! They arrived with all the pieces, exactly as described. I love that this set has more large containers then all the other Rubbermaid sets I have seen. The color is great, the fact that the containers and lids stack and snap together makes our cabinet so much more organized! The lids are easy to put on but also seem secure. The containers seem a little bit thinner then my friends older Rubbermaid set but they still seem like solid quality! Compared to the price of other food storage sets, these are a great deal! Lids for the three large containers are interchangeable and so are the lids for two smaller containers."  —kris10mcg8

    Price: $19.98 (originally $24.99)

    24. A tear stain remover for your pet. It's a mild coconut-based cleanser, and gets the stains out without hurting anyone's eyes.

    Walmart

    It's gluten-free, which probably doesn't matter for your pet, but does offer piece of mind to anyone with an issue, since if it gets on your hand it's pretty easy to get in your mouth, too.

    Promising review: "Great price, I use it daily and it keeps my dog free of tear stains. Tearless and it smells great!" —AshuraLuv

    Price: $8.79 (originally $10.99)

    25. A cordless Shark stick vac that folds in the middle of the stick to get into tight spaces while you clean and then take up less room while it's not in use.

    A model vacuums with the stick part bent in half to get under a chair
    Walmart

    This one is comparable to the Dyson V8, but has some extra features like being able to stand on its own while charging or stored, and a self-cleaning brush roll. It runs for 40 minutes on a charge, has a powerful suction, self-ejects dirt from the dust reservoir, and the stick can be taken off for handheld use (like vacuuming your car).

    Promising review: "I work at a mattress store and brought this vacuum because of its cordless ability, swervability and bendability. It is easy to get under the beds with its foldable option, and it is cordless so you can get around the whole store without having to unplug your vacuum. Great buy!" —Alissa

    Promising review: "This has been an amazing vacuum in the short amount of time I've owned it. It's really great! Fold in half for storage and to charge! Pretty amazing! Makes me wanna vacuum more now that it is so easy and it's cordless! Super helpful!" —Sara
