Let something else do the cleaning why you live your life.

Right now, if you use the coupon code "DEARMOM7" it'll knock $47 off the price, bringing it down to just under $150. This is the lowest price we've seen this vacuum sell for all year, but the offer ends when then clock strikes midnight PST on May 11th so don't hesitate if this is something you've wanted.

No more excuses. Just reading.

If you're sick of zoning out with your phone in your free time and want to do something more worthwhile, reading is the perfect replacement hobby. And if you don't have room on your bookshelf for more books, a digital library might be a good option. Right now, the best Kindle we've tested is $20 less than usual.

We love the Paperwhite best because it blends top-notch features like the ability to read in direct sunlight and a super long-lasting battery with affordability. It's a Goldilocks scenarios. You really don't need the extra bells and whistles that come with the Voyage or the Oasis, but the original Kindle will leave something to be desired, and the Paperwhite is just right.

18,000 Amazon reviewers can't be wrong, can they?

With nearly 18,000 reviews on Amazon and 4.4 out of 5 stars, there's no doubt this charcoal powder is a hit. Right now, you can try it out for just under $20, the second best price we've ever seen. When applied, the charcoal kicks off a process called adsorption that's said to help remove stains from teeth naturally. Whether or not it will actually work, I don't know. I'd love to believe that it is, and for this sale price, you can give it a shot and see for yourself.

All you have to do is spit in a tube, mail that tube to a laboratory, and wait a few weeks (typically 6-8 weeks or less). 23andMe can map your DNA to over 150 different regions across the globe to help you piece together your family tree. You can even find out if your family evolved form Neanderthals!

Having a portable charger handy can be a real life saver, and this Anker model is perfect for people with lots of devices in need of charging. Right now, you can save 21% on it with the code "AASTROE7."

It's got Anker's PowerIQ technology for faster charging in all three ports (only individually), can juice up an iPhone 6 TEN times on a single charge, and even has an LED flashlight that won't eat up any of its stored energy, but can come in handy when you're digging in your bag for that one specific item.
