And just like that, summer is coming to an end. While we won’t miss the humidity or the heat waves, we’ll definitely miss lazy afternoons in the sun and endless picnics. There is one thing we’re looking forward to though: major Labor Day weekend sales on all things home and kitchen.

Outside of the end-of-year and one-off anniversary sales (such as Brooklinen’s and Wayfair’s earlier this year), LDW deals are among the steepest, so you can stock up on indoor and outdoor furniture, bedding, decor, cookware, and more.

The Carry-Ons You Need If You’re Traveling This Summer

If there’s one travel rule I have, it’s to only use a carry-on—yep, even for international travel. Whether I’m going to Colorado or Canada, I’ll reach for a carry-on to avoid checked bag fees, lost time at luggage claim, and lost baggage (which, in cas…

If there’s one travel rule I have, it’s to only use a carry-on—yep, even for international travel. Whether I’m going to Colorado or Canada, I’ll reach for a carry-on to avoid checked bag fees, lost time at luggage claim, and lost baggage (which, in case you were wondering, is at an all-time high) this year).

Now that we’re starting to travel more regularly again, I’m spending every minute that I can anywhere but where I actually live. And just in time too, as testing carry-on luggage comes with the job.

You can reliably find some of the year’s biggest discounts during major holidays like Memorial Day or July 4th, but the very best ones—the ones worth refreshing the page every few minutes—are arguably during the holidays created around sales and sales alone. Case in point: Amazon Prime Day. While not the type of holiday where you’d get the day off from work, the retailer’s major annual sale features deals on everything from decor and small kitchen appliances to TVs and luxury beauty.

This year, Amazon Prime Day started on Tuesday, July 12 and runs through Wednesday, July 13 (as in, today!), with up to 79 percent off products from brands like Casper, Christopher Knight, Zinus, and more—and that’s just in the home category. Not to be outdone, though, many brands like Brooklinen and Wayfair are hosting their own sales this week if you’re looking specifically for bedding or like to comparison-shop (we always do).

I am the type of person who reaches for an ice-cold drink even in the middle of winter.
