Free up desk space with a monitor arm
If you’ve had trouble concentrating at work, you might want to take a look at your desk. Is it a cluttered mess? Clearing out your workspace can potentially do wonders for your productivity, and installing a monitor arm can help save a lot of desk space. The Fully Jarvis Monitor Arm is easy to set up and adjusts smoothly into a wide range of positions and angles, which can make your setup more ergonomic and better for you over time. Normally selling for $100, this is a rare discount for a sleek and stylish monitor arm when you use the code refresh-jma at checkout. If you use two monitors, the Fully Jarvis Dual Monitor Arm was our favorite of the ones we tested. The dual monitor arm is almost identical in design to Fully’s single-arm model but with two of them instead of one. It’s sturdy, easy to adjust, and like the single monitor arm, it comes with a five-year warranty. To secure the $130 deal pricing, be sure to add the code refresh-dual-jma at checkout.

Brighten up your space with a beautiful bouquet
Fresh flowers can completely transform a room and, according to a study conducted by the Texas A&M University research team, they can promote workplace productivity, creativity, and problem-solving. If you’re in search of reliable flower delivery, our favorite is UrbanStems. Of all the services we tried, UrbanStems delivered the most beautiful and interesting flower arrangements and had a good variety of modern and affordable bouquets. UrbanStems is offering 20% off sitewide with free shipping when you use the code WCBLOOMS—the cost referenced above is a sample price, and the code works across their website on both cheaper and more expensive arrangements.

A customizable standing desk
Standing desks are great: They encourage you to get up and move around while you work, which can have positive health benefits, promote productivity, and help shake off that restless feeling. Standing desks also tend to be quite expensive, making this rare deal on the Fully Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk that much more exciting. The Jarvis offers a wide range of heights that work well for most people, a long warranty, and many customization options. As our former top pick, the Jarvis was relegated to “also great” because it was slightly less stable than the other desks we tested—but in the last year, Fully has made improvements to the frame that reduce wobbling. To save $50 on whatever configuration of the Jarvis you ultimately decide on, use the code refresh50 at checkout.

Sleep better with a budget-friendly memory-foam pillow
Xtreme Comforts Shredded Memory Foam Pillow (standard)
Deal price: $40 with coupon code WRCUTTER; street price: $50
A good night’s sleep can sometimes be the key to a productive day, and swapping the flattened pancakes you call pillows for something more supportive and moldable can help. The budget-friendly Xtreme Comforts Memory Foam Pillow, a longtime Wirecutter favorite, is a great pillow that consistently outperforms its pricier competition—as long as you don’t get a smelly one. While we still recommend it, staffers and readers alike have reported that some portion of pillows delivered had a strong chemical smell right out of the package, though others have arrived completely odorless. If you don’t mind the hassle of possibly having to air it out, return it, or if you have anosmia and the smell won’t bother you anyway, this is still a good deal. Just be sure to use the code WRCUTTER to snag the deal price.

An ice maker than crystal clear cubes
Do your carbonated beverages lose their fizz before you’re able to finish your drink? Your ice cubes are probably the culprit. Cloudy ice can cause carbonated drinks to go flat pretty quickly; clear ice, on the other hand, doesn’t create more fizz, so your seltzer or soda will taste better for longer. The portable NewAir Luma Comfort IM200S ice maker produces the clear cubes you need to keep your drinks bubbly and sharp. The reliable Luma works so well because the cubes form slowly with running water to prevent air pockets. Of course, that same perk is this ice maker’s main downside—this pick takes 20 to 25 minutes to complete a batch of ice at room temperature. Luckily though, it makes about three times as much ice per batch. Use the code WIRECUTTER at checkout to snag the deal price.

A museum-worthy toilet stool
Using a toilet stool can make going to the bathroom a faster, easier, and overall more enjoyable experience—but many toilet stools can be clunky and ugly, monopolizing space and clashing with the decor. The Tushy Ottomon, on the other hand, is so aesthetically pleasing that guide writer Nancy Redd thinks the MoMA Design Store would keep it in stock if they sold toilet stools. Sleek, smooth, and easy to clean, the Tushy Ottomon curves gracefully around the base of a standard toilet and stays in place while in use. Normally $69, you can nab this show stopping toilet stool (which comes with two leg-height options) for $57 when you use the code WIRECUTTER.

A great shoe rack for a small entryway
If you’re tired of tripping over the discarded shoes cluttering the space by your front door, it might be time to invest in a high-capacity shoe rack. A rack that doubles as a console table, the compact Yamazaki Tower is an especially good choice for anyone with a small entryway. Able to hold 24 pairs of shoes, this wood and steel 6-tier console also has a wooden shelf on top, useful for stacking mail, and two accessory hooks perfect for an umbrella or set of keys. The Yamazaki Tower barely ever goes on sale, making now a great time to pick up this versatile shoe rack. If you want something a bit smaller, the easy-to-assemble Seville Classics 3-Tier shoe rack is also available at a discount right now for $27.

An efficient electric kettle
Cuisinart PerfecTemp Cordless Electric Kettle (CPK-17)
Deal price: $80 with code FRIENDS; street price: $100
Whether you want to shave time off your morning tea-brewing ritual or turn the corner of your office into a easy-access pour-over coffee bar, an electric kettle can help. Quick and efficient, the Cuisinart PerfecTemp has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface, a wide handle that’s comfortable to hold, and a spout doesn’t dribble when pouring. It also has six temperature settings and can keep water at a set temperature for 30 minutes, perfect if you like to continuously top off your cup of tea. This kettle has seen an increase in street price over the past year, but this deal brings the PerfecTemp down to the best price we’ve seen in recent months when you use the code FRIENDS at checkout.

Our favorite smart lock
Maybe you want the ability to unlock your front door with your phone, or perhaps you like the idea of going for a run without thinking about where you’ll stash the key. No matter why you’re considering a smart lock, you can’t go wrong with our top pick. The Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro is a compact, quiet smart lock that gives homeowners six different unlocking options, including using a numerical code, a mobile app, a physical key, and your fingerprint. Though it sometimes takes a few attempts to work, the fingerprint was our favorite way to unlock the Ultraloq (but we really liked the feel of the lock’s rubber keypad, too). Down to $139 with the code WC30, the Ultraloq’s only shortcoming is that it’s not as compatible with every smart-home platform (like Apple HomeKit or Samsung SmartThings), but it does work with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant as long as you have the Ultraloq Bridge (which is included in this deal bundle).
