Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

I don’t have the patience to wait for Black Friday to roll around to purchase something I really love, nor do I have the self-control to ignore the deep, deep discounts on offer from Thanksgiving to the Monday after (or, let’s face it, starting nearly the Monday before). So yes, I’m shopping today — online — and here’s what I’m buying.
