Here we are, in the sweet spot of autumn. Comfortable but invigorating temps. Foliage bursting out all over the place. For sure, the swelter of summer's in the rear-view mirror, but we've got more than a month before the holiday madness kicks in. It's sweet, fresh, gorgeous and utterly chill.

Which makes it a great time to slow down, take stock and think about what you need before the world (and your family, your in-laws and your seasonal obligations) start taking it all out of you again. And when we say take stock, we mean it literally: It's a time to make your homestead more livable, comfy and fun. And, well, you can do it all at one place: Walmart. The offerings are so vast we have space to highlight only few product areas, but rest assured: A visit to walmart.com will convince you that if you need or want it, they've got it, and at a rock-bottom price.

And a Walmart+ membership will pump your savings up even more. A free 15-day trial membership is yours for the asking here, and a three-question survey will prolong your membership for an additional two more weeks for a solid month of benefits. (FYI, though: Those without Walmart+ will still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.)

So why not take a moment (or an hour) this weekend to take in the bargains, get whatever you want/need/deserve, and feel good about all that sweet, sweet money you'll be saving?

There's probably never been a better time to splurge on a bangin' new television. For one thing: This past year and a half been tough enough on you? Putting aside the personal angle, well, many of us have been putting a beating on our electronics with all the involuntary home time, thus accelerating their wearing out. Of course, then there's the shank of the sports-viewing year on the horizon — the NBA and NHL seasons and, before you know it, the NFL playoffs. Not to mention the Oscar-contending films that these days are more than likely to hit the small screen and big screen at the same time. So, yeah, it's time for an upgrade, and we (and Walmart) have got just the set: the Sony 75" Class KD75X8OJ

This is the 2021 model, which means two things: 1) That's the reason for the unbeatable price, representing a discount of more than 20 percent. Sure, you could bide your time and wait for the 2022 sets; but 2) This is a Sony TV we're talking about. Their longevity has been known to be measured in decades, not years. The upshot? You'd be well worth taking the plunge for this still-state-of-the-art set. And have we mentioned that you won't stand a chance of getting a deal like this on next year's model (you know, until this time next year).

A lot of what makes this TV worth snagging is right there in its name. 4K Ultra HD? That means you're (literally) looking at 3,840 horizontal-axis and 2,160 vertical axis pixels. The result? A picture containing 8,294,400 pixels. Go ahead and ask the tech geek in your life how eye-poppingly vivid that is (we'll wait). 

Then there's Google TV. What does that mean? Access to all your most-watched streaming apps via Google Assistant. We're talking over 700,000 movies and TV episodes at your fingertips and on the tip of your tongue. But guess what? This set also works with Apple Airplay, allowing you to stream content from your Apple devices too. 

Add in some HDR (high dynamic resolution), DolbyVision, Motionflow XR (which will keep the action in even the action-iest movies and the most blink-and-you-miss-it sports moments silky smooth), and Bluetooth capability, and you've got the TV of your dreams. Here's you chance to make them come true.

Shop it: Sony 75" Class 4K Ultra HD LED Smart Google TV, $1,098 (was $1,398), walmart.com

The thing about vacuums? You know that you can spend darn near four figures for some of the most newfangled, high-tech, otherworldly sophisticated, digital-age-friendly models. And, sure, they're good at what they do. But do you really need to put that kind of hurt on your credit card just to get yourself a solid, no-nonsense floor sucker? The answer is no, and here's the proof: the Eureka MaxSwivel Deluxe

Your first clue to this vac's excellence? It's right there in its name: Eureka, a leader in vacuum technology for, well, as long as there have been vacuums. But don't let its venerable lineage fool you: the SwivelMax Deluxe has got 21st century effectiveness. For instance, unlike other swivel vacs that need two motors (one to make the swivel happen), SwivelMax has one super-efficient one, allowing you maximum suction and maneuverability at the same time. It also features dual cyclone technology, which means that your suction strength won't fade as the dust receptacle fills up.

Like other models costing literally ten time as much, the MaxSwivel takes on tile and hardwood as well as carpeting. It's detachable handle enables you to get at those stairs, that furniture and those cobwebs with an extended reach of 7.5 feet.

Last and most definitely not least: You can grab one of these now at Walmart for the ridonculous price of $59 — that's less than half its original price tag. You now have item number one for your weekend to-do list. You're welcome

Shop it: Eureka MaxSwivel Deluxe Upright Multi-Surface Vacuum, $59 (was $129), walmart.com
