I can't tell if my room is too dry or if the heat in my apartment—which I have no control over—is turned up too high, but every night my entire body feels as if it's laying on a huge hand-warmer. If you also experience toasty, sleepless nights, Amazon has 25 percent off these cooling mattress tops in bed sizes ranging from Twin to California King. They are hypoallergenic and machine-washable, and are made of a soft "Revoloft" fiber filling that mimics down. $97-$120.

Save an extra $5 on a Eufy smart light switch. There are three lighting modes that can be accessed through the EufyHome app: one that schedules, one that sets your lights to a timer, and an away mode, which turns the lights on to make potential robbers think you're home. The voice controlled, Wi-Fi switch works with Amazon and Google Assistant. $25.
