Coming back from a long weekend is painful, guys. Whether you spent your Labor Day weekend poolside like me or you used that time off wisely to move into a new apartment (or help your son or daughter head back to campus), the truth is, nobody wants to be at work today. Nobody. Seems like the perfect opportunity to do a little online shopping, if you ask me.

3. Under $30: The best food storage containers we’ve ever used
A few years back, my sister gave me this Pyrex set for my birthday and it was seriously one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. These food storage containers are not only the best we’ve ever tested (I mean duh, it’s Pyrex), but they’re also good for so much more than simple storage. I use my casserole dish at least two to three times a week for baking, and I use the 1.5-quart mixing bowl constantly. True, I’m always lost on where o find the right sized lid for the container in question, but there’s no denying this 28-piece set is a steal. You can save an extra $5 on it if you grab it now, so do it up.

4. Under $300:This powerful cordless Dyson
Eager to get a jumpstart on fall cleaning? For a cordless vacuum that’ll work especially well even if you have pets, this refurbished Dyson V7 Animal Cordless Stick Vacuum can work wonders.
Lightweight and designed to remove ground-in dirt, this vac works on everything from carpets to hardwood floors. It takes about 3.5 hours to charge and runs for up to 30 minutes at a time, so you can definitely get a good amount of vacuuming done in one session thanks to this bad boy.
Even on sale, Dyson vacuums can be expensive, and it can be rare to find one under $300, let alone one that performs this well. The V7 Animal usually retails for around $350, so you’re saving $80 if you grab the renewed version here. Dyson also offers a six-month warranty on refurbished models purchased through Amazon, so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth.

5. Get $40 off the most popular DNA test kit
If you’ve ever wanted to know more about your heritage, a DNA test kit is a must-try. But here’s a good rule of thumb: never buy one unless it’s on sale. Every time a major holiday rolls around, Ancestry DNA drops the price on their bestselling kit, making it even more tempting to try one out for yourself. Labor Day already happened, but you can still get $40 off the price of their kit if you shop on Amazon right now, thanks to an on-page coupon. You can’t get this deal on their own site anymore, so you definitely should grab it now on Amazon before the price jumps back up.
