September, in the world of buying things online, can seem like a bit of a snoozefest. Coming in hot off the heels of summer spending and end-of-season markdowns, some shoppers need a break from giving their budgets a figurative shakedown and many retailers an intermission from flash-sale dances. But, when you take a closer peek, there's actually a whole universe still teeming with top products and irresistible deals — 29 of them to be exact.
If you pressed pause on September shopping, then you're in luck: the sleepy reprieve month is over and we opened up our collection tank filled with anonymous R29-reader purchase data to recap its most wanted items from the month. What did we find? Everything from the fashion oxymoron that is classy sweatpants to an infamous $20 memory foam pillow, big still-on-sale home buys, a premature beauty advent calendar (that's sure to sell out), and even a pair of breathable underwear made from the same material as the internet's favorite breathable face mask.
Scroll ahead to give September a little retroactive shopping respect with a product-highlight reel that's worthy of the savviest shoppers — you know, the ones who never say never to a very good buy.
