I Shop Amazon for a Living, and These Are the 9 Things I'm Buying From Its Presidents Day Sale
Presidents Day is one of the only opportunities to score big savings during the winter months. Plenty of retailers offer sales over the three-day weekend, and many won't have steep discounts again until the end of spring (around Memorial Day), making this holiday weekend the ideal time to fill your shopping cart.
There are over 10,000 deals in Amazon's sale section this Presidents Day weekend, including discounts on fashion finds, beauty products, home goods, kitchen gadgets, and more. As a shopping editor, I know that major savings—in some cases, up to 70 percent off—on brands like Casper, New Balance, Apple, Ninja, and iRobot Roomba, don't occur all the time, so I plan to take advantage and grab a slew of items currently sitting in my cart.

Presidents Day weekend is a popular time to save on furniture, mattresses, small and large kitchen appliances, and electronics. Amazon's big sale includes savings on all of the above: top-rated mattresses (including my favorite adaptive foam style from Tuft and Needle), time-saving Nespresso makers, and even Apple AirPods Pro are all going for less. I'm planning to get Ninja's professional countertop blender with 27,000 five-star ratings while it's marked down.
Everything else in my cart is under $65, including a new backpack for my commute. Like many that are returning to offices, I've got a lot to carry, like my laptop, lunch, water bottle, and other comforts I enjoyed at home, so I need a roomy bag that's easy to wear. This on-sale find has earned more than 12,000 five-star ratings comes in 38 colors. It's earned high praise for its durability and storage capacity, and I like that it looks a little more elevated than a typical backpack.
With spring just around the corner, I'm planning to give my place a thorough cleaning and refresh, which will include a few new additions to my kitchen. Practical items, like a sleek drying rack, some attractive silverware, and new bowls are a few investments I can make use of daily. I already own some of Sweese's versatile pasta bowls, which are the perfect plate-bowl hybrid, so I'm planning to snag a few more while they're marked down.
