Which brings us to Wayfair, the massive home retailer that is offering up to 80% off nearly every single category through November 29.

We know patio furniture may be the absolute last thing on your mind right now as winter quickly approaches, but if you were itching to throw away your outdoor furniture in August, this is a great time to do so. With demand (and prices) low, inventory is high, which means you can score the uber-popular, top-rated stuff at a fraction of the normal price. The prices will knock your socks off and you'll be the happiest outdoor BBQ-er come Memorial Day.

Whenever you see the word "blowout" next to any category on Wayfair, you can pretty much guarantee that the deals are going to be insane. But, this area rug sale is truly mind-blowing. If you need a rug for a smaller space — like in your kitchen or hallway — you can score amazing options for less than $15. If a plush, new rug is the only thing holding your guest room back from being hotel room-ready, now's your chance.

We're not condoning reckless purchases on things you don't need — but hey, if you're gonna do it anyway ...
