Memorial Day weekend is upon us, which means rosé, white pants, and sales. Lots and lots of sales. We rounded up a complete list of all of the home deals you need to know about, but you’re forgiven for not wanting to spend your extra day off scouring for the best ones. So relax and let us make it easy for you: Here are the 10 things you’ll want to buy this Memorial Day for every room in your home, from hugely discounted finds to goodies from your favorite retailers who rarely have sales.

Linen Sheet Set, $169 $135.20 from Parachute

Parachute rarely has sales, so if you’ve been eyeing their famous linen sheets, now is the time to buy. I’ve slept on MANY linen sheets and can confirm that these are actually worth the hype. Soft right out of the box, breathable, and perfectly rumpled, they’re perfect for summer and beyond. Plus, the wide range of muted color options are a dream (I have them in Fog). While you’re at, be sure to check out some of our other favorites from this sale.

Highway to Home Barlow Armchair, $300 $149.99 from Wayfair

Wayfair has incredible deals across all categories, but their living room furniture offerings are particularly good. This mid-century modern find is one of the best sales offered at 50 percent off. Sophisticated and distinctive, the armchair comes in the gray color above, as well as cognac and beige.

Henry 86″ Sofa, $1099 $824.25 from West Elm

The Henry sofa is one of our favorites, especially because it’s already fairly priced to begin with. West Elm‘s sale is tiered, meaning that you have to spend a certain amount to save—and luckily, the just-over-$1,000 price tag on the Henry means that it’s discounted by 25 percent with code SAVEMORE.

Hamilton Beach Wave-Action Blender, $32.96 $14.96 from Walmart

Blenders can get expensive, so snagging one during a sale is ideal. But a blender that’s under $15? That’s practically unheard of! Walmart pulled through and discounted the budget-friendly yet hard-working Hamilton Beach Wave-Action by over 50 percent—and, it’s one of our top blender picks of last year.

Langley Street Joaquin Modern Area Rug, $217 $112.99 for 5’x7′ from AllModern

If you spend time on Instagram or Pinterest, chances are you’ve seen this Beni Ourain-style rug. (We’ve even declared it one of the ingredients to a perfectly Instagrammable living room.) Neutral but still eye-catching, this rug will brighten up any room of your home — and you can’t beat that 48 percent discount.

Solid La Jolla Basket, $78 $62.40 from Serena & Lily

These baskets from Serena & Lily are everywhere, and we can’t get enough of them. Use them to store throws in your living room, as extra storage or laundry in your bedroom, or as a home for towels in your bathroom — the options are endless. Their price runs on the high end, so grabbing them at that 20 percent discount is ideal.

Matouk Milagro Bath Towel, $49 $39.99 from Nordstrom

Matouk is a high-end brand that is worth every penny—and as part of their Half Yearly sale, Nordstrom is selling them at 15 percent off. Not only are these towels ultra soft and thick (think finest hotel quality), but they also come in a couple different colors, so you can grab a few of your favorites or mix and match. They were also the top choice in our bath towel guide last year.

Alicia Galer Sketched Petalwork Duvet Cover, $178 $124.60 for Queen from Anthropologie

Anthro is in the midst of a huge Decorating Sale, and the best discounts can be found on bedding and outdoor furniture. Anthro‘s quilts and duvet covers are much-loved for their colorful motifs and style, and this floral find is no exception. It’s the best of both worlds, combining the lightness of white bedding with the personality of patterns.

Caden 10-Light Sputnik Chandelier, $225 $109.99 from Joss & Main

This chandelier is all the rage right now for its modern and eye-catching design elements, but you’d be hard-pressed to find it at a budget-friendly price. That’s why we’re so excited that Joss & Main is offering it for a whopping 51 percent off — if you’ve been contemplating this piece for your kitchen or dining room, this is a sign that it’s time to buy.

Captiva Design 3-Piece Patio Bistro Set, $109.00 $74.79 from Target

Target’s Memorial Day sale is very much focused on outdoor goods like this adorable bistro set, and we’re not complaining. Compact and colorful, it’s the perfect way to brighten up a small and dreary balcony or create a welcoming corner in your patio.
