Today in deal news: Did you hear about the new Wyze Cam v3? It's even better than the previous versions. (Weatherproof! Color night vision!) Miraculously, it's still just $20. If there's a Cheapskate Hall of Fame -- say, there should be a Cheapskate Hall of Fame -- the Wyze Cam would definitely hold a spot. We talked about it in the latest episode of The Cheapskate Show podcast, if you're interested:
Today in actual deals, I bring you two essential items and one fun one. Have at.
Is there a desk (or countertop) that couldn't be improved by this little charging station? It features two AC outlets, three USB ports and a stand for your phone or tablet. About the only rub I can see is the power cord, which is just 3.3 feet.

Earlier this week, I told you that you could nab this for $24 with promo code EE7YTOAU. Today, it's marked down even further, no promo code required -- act fast, though, because this flash sale runs out later today.
I'm a little obsessed with LED light strips right now; they're great for bias lighting behind your TV or just colored lighting anywhere you want. This kit nets you four 16.4-foot spools for a total of over 65 feet. The catch: They're all wired into the same controller, so you can't set up a single, contiguous strip. You have to branch them.
Assuming that works, you can control these via the included remote or an Android or iOS app. (Alas, no support for voice commands.) This is a lot of LED for $19.
