We came, we saw, and we conquered Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year. We sorted through hundreds (if not thousands) of home deals from all of our favorite retailers during the biggest shopping day of the year, and found all of the ones that were actually worth splurging on. From Dyson to West Elm to Walmart, the discounts truly did not disappoint, and like us, you all took notice and made the most of the sale weekend.

In the aftermath, we were curious about which deals you couldn’t pass up, so we took it upon ourselves to look through the data and figure out which items were the biggest hits among AT readers — and we’re seriously impressed by your choices! Some of our favorite brands are among the 10 most popular products you snagged — and more than a few are ones that we’ve tried and loved ourselves. Some of them are even still on sale right now! Read on for our full report.
