Vacations and early closings on Fridays at the office are great, but summer ain't as relaxing as it's cracked up to be.
So it seems fitting that Labor Day rolls around at the beginning of September — it's kind of the calendar's way of saying "You've worked hard and I see you — here's a Monday off."
Labor Day sales show us that we all deserve a reward for that labor once in a while.
One of the last big shopping holidays before Black Friday, retailers are coming in full force with sales in every category this year. We're seeing monster deals on mattresses and laptops (shoutout to back-to-school season), as well as deals on 4K TVs, appliances like Instant Pots and grills, and all of the fall threads you've been itching to wear.
