  1. If you're sad that summer is waning, I've got something that's sure to cheer you up. Labor Day sales offer some of the biggest discounts you'll see all year, making it the perfect time to give your home a pre-fall refresh. As an interior designer, Wayfair is my go-to for quick ship items and great prices. And for Labor Day, the online furniture haven is bringing shoppers discounts up to 70% off on everything from basics like linens and cookware to larger purchases like sofas and patio sets. Need a new mattress? This Sealy queen-size is on sale for $390 (was $1,190) — that's nearly 70% off! If you haven't updated your coffee maker in awhile, no worries. I found this Cuisinart option for $89 (was $133). There's even a gorgeous wool rug for over $1,000 off and a massage recliner for under $300! Of course, the items I've chosen below are only a small taste — an amuse bouche, if you will — of what's available.
