Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, we can officially kick off the holiday season! Avoiding the shopping crowds is becoming easier and easier every year so Cyber Monday is my favorite day to look for deals from the comfort of my home. While perusing some online sales, I decided to put together some links to sale items I personally love and use or things on my wish list*.
So, here we go…
#1 Instant Pot Duo 80
First up is the Instant Pot Duo 80 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Saute, Yogurt Maker, and Warmer, 8-QT, Stainless Steel/Black. Normally $139.95, today you can snag it for around $65! This is a number one recommendation because it is THAT good. If you don’t have one in your kitchen already, you won’t regret this purchase. I’ve bought one for relatives who were skeptical at first before falling in love with the InstantPot.
# 2 AncestryDNA Genetic Ethnicity Traits Test
Have you ever wondered about your heritage? If so, now might be a great time to invest in a DNA test (or send it as a gift). Ordinarily listing for $119, this AncestryDNA test is a bargain at $49.
#3 Kitchenaid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer with Food Grinder Attachment
I have been using the same Kitchenaid stand mixer my Mother-in-Law gave me 15 years ago! I used it when creating and testing recipes for my cookbook, Sweet Paleo, and it has really gotten a workout over the years. Even though my own mixer is still going strong (good quality product), having a nicer, newer version would be amazing. If you are in the market for a sturdy, long-lasting stand mixer, this is one to seriously consider.
#4 Blendtec Classic 575 Blender – Wildside + Jar and Spoonula Bundle
Now, admittedly, I own a Vitamix and not a Blendtec. But Blendtec is the brand with all the deals today and from my friends and relatives who own one, I know it’s a good quality product. I used my high-speed blender almost daily.
#5 TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller (with free online instructional videos)
Since starting back with Crossfit, foam rolling has become indispensable. Rollers are great for muscle recovery, pain relief, and improved flexibility. This particular foam roller comes in a variety of colors and is on the small side for easy storage.
#6 Butcher Box with Free Bacon for Life!
I’ve been a Butcher Box customer for over a year and continue to enjoy the quality of the products and the flexibility and convenience of the ordering process. ButcherBox bacon is uncured and free of added sugar and nitrates. New members who sign up today will get a free package in every box for the entire life of their membership. Talk about bringing home the bacon! I personally love, not only the bacon and grassfed beef, the ground pork breakfast sausage is the best we’ve ever tasted.
#7 Nest Bedding (Mattress)
After we moved into our house in Texas three years ago we were in search of a new mattress. I was skeptical of ordering a mattress online but found great reviews and decided to take a chance. Now, (and I’m not exaggerating) we comment on the amazing comfort of our Nest mattress (“Alexander Hybrid”) almost every night. You can get 5% off through the link below.
WE GOT YOUR BACK! 5% off Nest Bedding® Alexander Hybrid Luxury Contour Mattress with coupon code NEST5 –
The Reebok website has 50% everything today. No exclusions. Use code CYBER to score big, all Nano 9 styles included. I just purchased “Crossfit” shoes for my husband via this website.
15% sitewide today and free shipping on orders over $50. I am not a consultant but I am a customer and love many of the products. If you are trying to reduce problematic chemicals in your personal products, this is a great line to try. My personal favorites are the lipsticks, eye shadows, Daily Shampoo and Daily Conditioner and the Countermatch lotion/moisturizer line.
I’ve been an Audible customer for over 15 years. As a busy person, just about the only time I have to “read” books is while doing something else – folding laundry, driving, cooking, etc… Audible has some great deals over the next couple of days on audiobooks for yourself or to give as gifts. I have no financial interest in the company, I just love and recommend it to everyone who will listen.
This is the number one item on my Christmas WISH list. I saw the Hydrow in the shopping section of an airline magazine I was perusing while bored on a flight. But after doing plenty of rowing in Crossfit I know first hand how great of a workout you get from rowing (using 86% of your muscles!) I would love to have this rower which is similar to the Peloton cycle in that there’s an interactive screen with recorded and live rowing videos. The machine retails for $2,199 – which is outside my price range. But I just saw they have a Black Friday/Cyber Monday deal at Best Buy for a discount of a whopping $1,000. My friend who owns a Peloton (and loves it) says only the accessories go on sale, never the machine itself. So, I sort of doubt we’ll see this type of discount again. (The company actually says this will not happen again). So if you want a full-body workout with a sleek-looking piece of equipment and have the means to purchase this beauty, this may be something to investigate.
#12 Sweet Paleo: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free Delights
My personal list of great buys this holiday season would not be complete without touting my own cookbook, Sweet Paleo. Whether you are gluten-free, living the Paleo or Primal lifestyle, or simply love gourmet-quality food, in Sweet Paleo you will discover delectable breakfast and dessert recipes made with nutrient-dense ingredients. From simple creations like Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pancakes to sophisticated offerings such as dairy-free Crème Brûlée or a perfect grain- and dairy-free Tiramisu’, the wide range of delights in this book is sure to satisfy your cravings no matter the occasion or your dietary requirements. With more than 90 recipes, Sweet Paleo will guide you through the use of grain-free flours, dairy-free alternatives, and unrefined sweeteners so that you can have your gluten-free cake and eat it too. Great as a gift too!
So, there you have it, my list of top Cyber Monday deals.
Shopping this time of year can be overwhelming, so I hope this list is helpful in driving you toward a few items that fit into a healthy lifestyle either for yourself or for your friends and family. Happy shopping!
