    This is a pretty huge sale, so I put together a list of some practical items you may totally fall in love with:

    1. A pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones so you can focus on your work at home when you live in a busy household. "What's that? I can't hear you over Taylor Swift, sorryyy." —definitely you, but it's also me.

    The headphones

    Promising review: "Great sound, comfortable, and blocks out surround sound very well!" —Target customer

    Price: $49.99 (originally $79.99)

    2. A Keurig K-Mini coffee maker to keep your mug full ~and~ hot without having to make an entire pot of coffee. It's just too much commitment, okay?

    The Keurig mini

    Promising review: "I wanted something that took up minimal counter space. This fits the bill perfectly. I love that I control how big a cup of coffee I make by how much water I add. This has no other settings to use, which I don't miss. I'll be keeping this for sure." —Target customer

    Price: $59.99 (originally $99.99)

    The robot vacuum

    Promising review: "I am so impressed with this vacuum! It does a great job getting all the dust, dirt, and pet hair off of my hardwood floors.

    Price: $159.99 (originally $279.99)

    7. A five-piece set of plastic mixing bowls to finally retire those old, permanently stained mixing bowls you've had for who knows how long. It's time. No, the stains do not add ~flavor~, stop.

    Promising review: "Setup was a breeze on my PS4. No messing around, no funky workaround to make it work. As close to “plug and play” as it gets. Now I can keep my current rotation of games loaded up and ready to rock. I should have gotten on years ago, when I got my PS4!" —Target customer

    Price: $5.40 (originally $9, available in two sizes)

    29. A welcoming sign so you're always greeted by your home when you walk into the door. This is great for cat people because at least *someone* will greet us.
