As a Professional Shopper, These Are the 5 Things I’m Buying From the Sale

As a shopping editor, my virtual shopping cart fills up quickly, but I always wait for prices to drop before checking out. Fortunately, this holiday weekend is bringing many discounts, and I’m excited to share some of my favorite finds from sale.


With markdowns as steep as 70% off, store’s sale is a shopper’s dream come true, offering thousands of deals across every department. While you could sort through all the discounts, I’ve curated a list of the beauty products, kitchen items, and other discounted goodies that have made their way into my own virtual cart. Don’t miss out on these limited-time deals!

Whenever store has a holiday sale, I take advantage of the opportunity to stock up on essentials that I run out of quickly. This includes my must-have mascara, go-to facial moisturizer that has been a savior for my dry winter skin, and the versatile makeup sponges that I use for applying foundation, concealer, blush, and bronzer.

Additionally, I’m excited to score some kitchen gadgets that have been on my wish list for a while. I’ll be adding this highly-rated immersion blender to my cart, which will make blending soups and sauces a breeze. And since I’m always looking for ways to simplify meal prep, I’m also picking up a set of reusable silicone bags that are perfect for storing leftovers and taking snacks on-the-go.

When it comes to home decor, I’ve had my eye on this chic area rug that will add a pop of color and texture to my living room. And to make sure my feet stay cozy during these cold winter months, I’m also adding a plush throw blanket to my cart.

I’m also using Presidents’ Day sale to save on several kitchen items, including an elegant-looking salt cellar to keep the essential ingredient in a handy spot on my counter and a new kitchen knife sharpener kit. 

Instead of shelling out money for new knives, I’m hoping to give new life to my current assortment with this best-selling bundle with 18,000 five-star ratings. It’s currently 60 percent off, bringing it down to just $12. The three-in-one tool straightens, sharpens, and polishes knives, and it comes with a cut-resistant kitchen glove. Fellow shoppers call the set “nifty,” “easy to use,” and “very impressive.”
