We found lots of things you didn’t know you needed in today’s sweep through the internet’s sale bins. There’s a toaster that makes for a convincing (and budget-friendly) Smeg dupe, some actually attractive flytraps for kitchens overrun by gnats, and a frizz-taming mousse for smoother, shinier curls.


This little money tree — considered by some as a symbol of prosperity — requires only indirect light, making it one of the easiest houseplants to care for. (We’ll take its sale price as a sign that boom times are ahead.)

Keep late-summer pests at bay with these sticky flytraps, which hundreds of reviewers call a “game changer” for kitchens overrun by fruit flies.

SheaMoisture makes some of our favorite curl-quenching hair products, and we suspect this shea-butter-infused mousse will be no exception. But don’t just take our word for it; over 3,000 reviewers give it five out of five stars.

If you get your curls with a curling iron, use this thermal protectant from Chi to shield your hair from heat damage. It’s suitable to use with all heat tools and hair types.

Madewell is taking an extra 20 percent off sale items with code SALEONSALE. Grab these vintage-inspired straight-leg jeans while you can.

For those hungry for even more beauty secrets from our in-house columnist (slash aesthetician-in-training), you can pick up Rio Viera-Newton’s skin-care book, Let’s Face It, on sale over at Urban Outfitters.

If you’ve got a teen girl to shop for, Olivia Rodrigo’s just-released Sour vinyl would look (and sound) especially good when spun on this purple tie-dye record player.

End Clothing is still taking an extra 20 percent off select sale styles at checkout, including these unisex Converse low-tops in what I like to call “Y2K camo.”

Or grab this handy Carhartt hip pack in actual camo.

If you’re not looking to drop nearly $200 on a ’50s-inspired Smeg toaster, this one from Frigidaire looks just as retro. It’s also on sale in white.

This pet bowl, designed by potter and tastemaker Jonathan Adler, is a steal at full price. Now that it’s on sale, as we say, don’t dillydally.
