If you’re starting to feel a mid-September slump, we’ve got plenty of sales to keep you at the top of your game. There’s a KitchenAid coffee grinder that our editor (who drinks at least three cups of cold brew a day) owns and loves, a NuFace that’s as cheap as it was on Prime Day, and a restoring night eye gel for fatigue that’s half off. Plus, if you’re a man who needs some pants, we’ve got you covered.

$17 for 30

If you’re feeling the stress of back-to-school chaos, consider picking up our best overall hangers in a child-friendly size, and get a grip on your kid’s closet.

This no-frills KitchenAid coffee grinder comes at a no-frills price — and it couldn’t be easier to use: Just push down on the clear cover to start and release to stop. Its stainless-steel blades will quickly grind whole beans to make up to 12 cups of coffee.

KitchenAid’s seven-cup food processor is also on sale, and we like that the blades are stainless steel and the bowl is leak-resistant.

As we head into cold and flu season, it can’t hurt to keep a few at-home COVID tests around. BinaxNOW kits were one of the first to earn FDA authorization, and they’re now more than 30 percent off. (As a reminder: One box contains two tests.)

Here’s a surprisingly stylish pair of Carhartt double-knee jeans.

Speaking of jeans, these classic 501s are 20 percent off at Urban Outfitters.


For a baggier fit, Urban Outfitters also has Levi’s 550 cut in black, tinted denim, and a light vintage wash for 20 percent off.

NuFACE Mini Starter Kit

NuFACE’s mini starter kit is now as cheap as it was on Prime Day with the code BEST, so if you missed your chance to snag the dermatologist-recommended microcurrent device then, now’s your chance.

Our favorite water bottle comes in a lightweight version, making it the perfect way to save weight on backpacking trips (or — you know — just your everyday bag) and keep drinks hot or cold all day long.

Cotopaxi Tech Bucket Hat

No one will miss you in the crowd when you’re wearing this bucket hat.

This cleansing oil starts as a balm that you massage into your face, so a little bit goes a long way — especially when the tub is half off.

To combat fine lines and fatigue, try FlashPatch’s restoring night eye gels, which are also half off. They contain retinol, squalane, peptides, and arnica extract, which work to to smooth, hydrate, and brighten the skin.
