You don’t need a yard, or even any gardening skills to grow your own food at home; you just need Miracle-Gro’s Aerogarden line. These fully-integrated, soil-free indoor gardens can grow herbs, vegetables, and salad greens up to five times faster than regular soil, and you can choose from two great deals today.

The smaller Sprout Plus LED model is marked down to $70, and can grow up to three pods at once, while the larger Harvest can accommodate six pods for just $30 more. Both come with a starter pack of pods to get started, but Amazon has a ton of extra options on sale to fit your tastes.

These days, you probably charge as many things over USB as you do over standard AC outlets, so it only makes sense to add some semi-permanent USB ports to your home.

Today on Amazon, you can get highly-rated duplex receptacles with a pair of USB ports for $20 each. These have proven very popular with readers in the past, even at higher prices, so be sure to secure a few before Amazon sells out.

Note: These don’t come with wall plates, but Leviton sells one for just $.34 as an Amazon add-on item.

These Dyson AM06 air multipliers are marked down to awesome prices on Amazon today, as long as you don’t mind buying a refurb. Yeah, they’re more expensive than your average fan, but they look so gorgeous that you’ll actually want to show them off, and they come with features like a sleep timer, 10 airflow settings, and a magnetic remote that can stick to the fan’s base when not in use.

If any of the magazines in the image above appeal to you, Amazon will sell you a deeply discounted subscription in today’s Gold Box. Just note that like all Gold Box deals, these prices are only available today.

Your phone might not support it yet, but if you want to be prepared for the Quick Charge 3.0 revolution, this is the best price we’ve seen on Anker’s QC 3.0 wall charger. And while you’re waiting for the future to arrive, it’s also backwards compatible with Quick Charge 2.0 as well.

Velcro cable ties can transform the rat king of cables behind your desk or home theater into something more manageable, and you can get 100 of them today on Amazon for just $6. Now, Amazon frequently lists these at $5, but as add-on items that only ship as part of a $25 order. Today, you’ll pay $1 more, but you can get free Prime shipping.

For a few years now, Antec’s USB-powered HDTV bias light has been one of our most reliably popular deals whenever it went on sale. The problem: It only gets a significant discount once every few months. Luckily, a copycat has emerged to fill in the gap.

Just like the Antec model, this Vansky LED light strips plug directly into your TV’s USB port for power, and sticks to the back of the set via built-in adhesive. Once you turn your TV on, the light strip will cast a soft glow on the wall behind it, which can reduce eyestrain when watching in the dark, and improve your TV’s perceived black levels. We’ve posted a few deals on this model, but $15 is the best price we’ve seen.

Packing cubes can make organizing clothes and toiletries for your next trip a little less hellish, and this highly-rated set of four is only $13 today, which is one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a packing cube set.

These cheap LED lights can stick directly into your grass to light a path to your front door, and since they include built-in solar panels, you won’t have to run any wires or replace any batteries. Under $20 for a 2-pack is one of the best deals we’ve seen on a product like this.

If the thought of a $15 rice cooker isn’t enough to wet your whistle (and really, what’s more exciting than rice?), consider that it also includes a steaming tray that can cook your meats and vegetables simultaneously.

If you’ve got a little more to spend, this step-up model from Tiger will double as a slow cooker, and includes dedicated settings for different styles of rice. At $49, it’s never been cheaper.

Bluetooth headphones and smartphone arm bands go together like peanut butter and jelly (except much healthier), and you can take your pick of two combo deals today. Just add Aukey’s Bluetooth headphones to your cart, then add either an iPhone 6 armband and use code 5EU6TKKX to get both for $18, or a generic, waterproof armband and code VRHXRO7D for $16.

Quick, what do you think this is an image of?

The correct answer is tea balls. 6 of them for $7. Use promo code QTFGVLMI.

If you can’t start your day without a morning cup of coffee, but you’re still using an electric drip coffee maker, or even (gasp) a Keurig, you might want to try out a flavor-extracting french press. This inexpensive model looks nearly identical to the excellent Bodum Chambord, but is significantly cheaper at $14 with code VID2IO58.

If you’re not convinced, know that french press took the #1 spot in Lifehacker’s coffee-making Hive Five, and many coffee aficionados swear by it. And with no disposable filters or pods to buy, this machine could pay for itself over time.

Today’s Amazon deal is the best price we’ve ever seen this model, but we don’t know how long it will last, so perk up and lock in your order while you can.

If you have a closet with at least one 4'-8' wall, this Rubbermaid custom shelving kit will add a ton of extra storage space. The configuration is totally up to you, so you can add more shelves, hanging rods, or any combination thereof. Today’s $84 deal on Amazon is within a few bucks of an all-time low, so be sure to lock in your order before it sells out.

In case you missed out last week, you can once again snag an extra year of PlayStation Plus for $40. I know it seems like we’re seeing this deal every week right now, but these gift card deals tend to be feast or famine; it wouldn’t surprise me a bit if the deal disappeared for three months.

Simplehuman dominated the nominations in our recent kitchen trash cans Kinja Co-Op, and Amazon’s running rare discounts on several different models today, plus a handful of soap dispensers and kitchen accessories to match.

Simplehuman sales are pretty rare, so if you’ve had one of these on your wishlist, I wouldn’t hesitate.

It isn’t the fastest or most powerful router on the market, but if you’re on the hunt for an 802.11ac router, and you’re on a budget, this well-reviewed TP-Link model is marked down to $50 today on Amazon. That’s about $20 less than normal, an all-time low, and one of the best prices we’ve ever seen on a reputable 802.11ac router.

They won’t track your steps or show you notifications, but Timex’s simple Weekender Watches are still some of the most popular watches ever listed. They’re extremely versatile and come in a variety of colors, and today several models are marked down to the $30 range, plus an additional 20% off with code WEEKENDER. Just note that the code will only work on watches shipped and sold by directly; no third party sellers.

Nespresso’s the easiest way to make good espresso, and the smartphone-connected Nespresso Prodigio is marked down to $169 on BuyDig today, by far the best price we’ve ever seen. The Bluetooth-connected smartphone app allows you to “manage your capsule stock, schedule a brew time, brew remotely, get machine assistance alerts and seamlessly register your machine into the Nespresso Club.” Just be sure to use promo code SMARTCUP100 to save $100 at checkout.

Vent-mounted magnets might be the hot new thing in smartphone car holders, but if your CD slot is lying dormant, or if you just don’t want to block a vent, this would also be a great option.

If you use a home theater PC, or even just occasionally plug a laptop into your TV to watch something from across the room, this handheld wireless keyboard and trackpad can give you full control without taking up too much room on your coffee table.

Game of Thrones returns to TV this weekend, but if you need to get caught up, the first two seasons are both marked down to $20 on Blu-ray right now, an all-time low. You don’t need to be a Lannister to afford those prices.

We see deals on car-starting battery packs just about every week, but even by our standards, $27 is a really fantastic starting price (with code TA9A92XK) for a 300A model. And for owners of larger cars, 400A and 600A versions are also on sale. No matter which one you choose, they all include a DC charger to juice it back up inside your car, and they’re all small enough to fit in your glove box.
