From Amazon

"Affordable sofas that are actually stylish are hard to come by, so that's why this midcentury-style one from home decor brand Rivet is such a deal. During Prime Day, the sofa is $200 off, making it only $499. The gray tweed is stain-resistant and will go with anything. Measuring 71 inches wide, it's a smaller model and an ideal size for a small living space. I live in a 460-square-foot studio and my couch, which is a similar style and size to this one, was my first major 'adult' purchase. If you're in the market for a chic and versatile sofa - maybe for your first post-college apartment - you'll want to jump on this deal before you can say, 'This is adulting.'" - Laura James, Assistant Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $499 (29% savings)

From Amazon

"A good white curtain is to your home what a go-to pair of jeans is to your wardrobe - classic, versatile and always a good choice. Room-darkening curtains are impossible to find at this price (less than $12 a panel!), so you better believe I'll be stocking up on these beauties this Prime Day." - Chelsea Faulkner, Assistant Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $23.09 for a set of 2 (30% savings)

From Amazon

"This almost 7' x10' rug is an absolute steal for less than $100. The distressed look is great if you have pets and kids. If they soil or stain it, it'll likely blend right in, and for this price, you probably won't care if they do." - Jackie McGilvray, Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $86.99 (73% savings)


From Amazon

"My favorite items to buy on Prime Day are tech gadgets, and the Ring Doorbell Camera is at the top of my list. I love the idea of knowing what's going on when I'm not home, and it's easy to install!" - Farima Alavi, Assistant Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $174 (30% savings)

From Amazon

"I've debated having a complete lighting plan done on my home for years, but why go to all that expense when this Arlo system lets me target a few trouble spots with motion-activated lights quickly and easily? Done!" - Felicia Feaster, Managing Editor



From Amazon

"Running throughout Prime Day (and a half), Amazon will be deeply discounting pet supplies for your furry best friend, from steals on feline-friendly finds (up to 40% off) to doggone good deals on Greenies treats (up to 50% off) for your fave face-licker. Stock up now to keep tails wagging!" - Camille Smith, Managing Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $9.59 (47% savings)

From Amazon

"Having three pets is amazing. BUT stressing about whether your pup is chewing on the new sofa or eating 'treats' out of the cats' litter boxes is not so amazing. When we're at work during the day, a Wi-Fi pet camera is our savior. The Petcube Play Pet Camera takes simple pet monitoring to a whole new level with two-way audio and a built-in laser toy. It'll give you and your pet(s) peace of mind when you're away from the house." - Kayla Kitts, Managing Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $134.99 (46% savings)

From Amazon

"My significant other and I recently moved in together, and between the two of us, we have a whopping four dogs. Luckily, I own a Roomba to keep pet hair under control, and I'd recommend it for any pet owner. Just press clean (or schedule a cleaning on the iRobot Home App) and let the bot get to work while you go about your day. It'll even pick up dirt underneath furniture and in hard-to-reach corners." - Shannon Petrie, Managing Editor

PRIME DAY DEAL: $229.99 (29% savings)
