It’s Cyber Week! Check out all of our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales coverage here.

If you’re anything like the Apartment Therapy team, you probably did a little (or a lot of) shopping this past weekend. The Black Friday deals were better than ever and we took advantage of the discounts, buying everything from vacuums and Kindles to skincare and loungewear. We rounded up some of the best stuff the AT team bought, and if you feel inspired by our purchases you’re in luck—because those Cyber Monday deals are very much still on. Let us know what you scored this year in the comments!

Dyson Cyclone V10 Motorhead Cordless Vacuum

“I’ve been slow to jump on the Dyson train because like, who do they think they are, Apple? Why are their vacuums so expensive? Why do they weigh so little and kind of look like a toy? But then I was at my boyfriend’s dad’s home for Thanksgiving and he had a Dyson and my boyfriend seemed pretty stoked about its maneuverability and its cordlessness. We bought the Dyson Cyclone V10 and have been gleefully sucking up every speck of dirt in our home since bringing it home. I thought our home was pretty clean since we have to stay on top of our pet hair problem (we have two dogs and a cat) but then we vacuumed our rugs with the Dyson and it sucked up so much more than any vacuum before it. We realized we had been living a lie. I’d keep typing about how much I love my Dyson, but honestly all this writing about it is making me want to go use it again.” —Adrienne Breaux, House Tour Editor

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

“I’ve had a Kindle Paperwhite for six and a half years now, and it’s been…lovingly overused, let’s say. It still works, but its lag times in turning pages and powering on have spooked me. So when I saw a sale on newer versions on Black Friday at Best Buy (well, actually Thanksgiving night, please don’t judge me), I decided to go for it. My old faithful isn’t dead (yet, let’s be real), but I’m so happy I got a deal on a new one for when it finally bites the dust.” —Terri Pous, Managing Editor

Buy: Kindle Paperwhite, $129.99 from Best Buy

Naturopathica Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm

“I bought Naturopathica skincare because I’ve heard scary things about not using natural products on your skin and amazing things about this brand. I also purchased workout classes because health is expensive (especially in NYC!), and a couple gifts on Amazon, because, of course.” —Madeline Goode, Manager, Brand Planning & Activation

Buy: Naturopathica Manuka Honey Cleansing Balm, $62 from Anthropologie

Joseph Joseph Nest Plus 9-Piece Set

“I thoroughly enjoy baking, but I’m extremely messy and always find myself scrambling for measuring spoons, cups, and bowls. I’m hoping this Joseph Joseph nesting bowl set helps me stay organized and tidy. Also, I love how colorful and fun the set is!” —Sholeen Damarwala, Commerce Editor

Lou & Grey Signature Softblend Sweatpants

“Several coworkers mentioned these ‘signature softblend sweatpants‘ and I was sold on the name alone. 50 percent off was so thrilling I had to go ahead and get the matching sweatshirt as well.” —Leandra Levine, Associate Director, Brand Partnerships

Silicone Ultimate Fork

“I bought these oversized silicone forks to give as stocking stuffers to my family, who hopefully are not reading this! (If you are, act surprised later!) I’ve never used them before but with five stars and 137 reviews I feel pretty confident they’ll make for a good workhorse kitchen tool, for everything from whipping up scrambled eggs to stirring cake batter. I got one for myself, too—couldn’t resist!” —Megan Baker, Projects Editor

Dyson Humidifier

“My skin is sensitive to dry air and I also have a tendency to get seasonal sinus infections. I’m already using my Neti Pot like crazy, but I’m hoping the addition of a heavy duty humidifier will quell all my winter plagues.” —Aaron Nachmann, Director of Ad Operations
