Parks And Recreation: The Complete Series ($49.99)
Mike & Molly: Seasons 1-6 ($59.99)
As you may have read on Newswire this morning, millennials won’t watch anything they have a hard time getting their hands on. This, The A.V. Club’s TV Editor Erik Adams says, is why TV box sets are still important, as they provide an essential way into certain shows that millennials really should know. That’s the case with Parks And Recreation, which, really, everyone should know and love. Amazon is offering a deeply discounted version of the complete series up as its deal of the day today, along with a set containing the entire Melissa McCarthy CBS vehicle Mike & Molly. Definitely pick up Parks, and let your conscience be your guide regarding Mike & Molly.
Emile Henry granite pizza stone ($32.99, was $60)
Amazon’s other excellent deal of the day today is this pizza stone, which is going for a full 45 percent off its normal retail price. Use this little granite buddy to make pizza on your grill or in your oven, and then cut right on it. It’s also dishwasher safe, which is a huge bonus.

FoodSaver automatic vacuum sealing system, with bags ($159.95, was $199.99)
To editorialize a little here, let me just say that I have a vacuum sealer, and it’s a game changer. You can use it to marinate, or just buy family size packs of meat and then break them up for a decent savings. It’ll pay for itself, honestly, and it’s fun to use.
Black And Decker Lithium ion drill with 100 accessories ($69, was $129)
This Black And Decker drill would make an excellent Christmas present for your mom, dad, or kid sibling. It’s also a great thing to pick up for yourself, if you don’t already have a drill. Fuck those shitty Ikea allen wrenches. This kind of thing makes furniture assembly downright tolerable.
Windproof, waterproof, automatic umbrella ($16.99, was $42.98)
With almost 50 reviews, this compact little umbrella is drawing 4.5 stars on Amazon, which is pretty impressive considering the low standard we hold most umbrellas to. It’s windproof to 60 mph, and reflective around the edge, meaning if you smack into someone on the street with this thing, it’s your own damn fault.
