With work meetings, catch-ups with friends, and even weddings being held on video chats for the foreseeable future, people are learning just how difficult it is to look presentable on camera. If you’ve spent more than two minutes adjusting the camera angle, room lighting, and location of your setup just to even be visible on a call, check out this Pictar Home-Office Kit, which includes a wide-angle lens, tripod, and a smart light.

For anyone who needs to show off more than a standard webcam is capable of, Pictar's wide-angle lens will double your camera's field of view, allowing more people to be in frame and offering a better look at whatever you want to display. All you have to do is clip the lens over your smartphone camera or the webcam on your laptop or monitor.

You'll also receive Pictar's flexible tripod in the bundle, which comes equipped with five adjustable legs that can be shaped however you want them to be. From there, you can stack the Pictar smart light on top of your new setup—complete with a 12-bulb LED panel—for flattering lighting that's easily adjustable to suit wherever you're located. The light is battery-powered and can run at full brightness for up to two hours, so you won’t be a victim to a blackout during a long call.

The entire kit—including the wide-angle smart lens, flexible tripod, and smart light—is discounted by 35 percent right now, so you'll receive it all for just $90.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

The famous 11 herbs and spices recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) remains a closely guarded secret. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take home a firelog that will crackle with the aroma of a fresh bucket of fried chicken this holiday season.

All the smell, none of the calories.Walmart

The KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Firelog ($16) has been a popular novelty purchase for the past two years, and this year, it’s available exclusively at Walmart. Made in partnership with Enviro-Log, the flammable product releases a scent reminiscent of KFC’s distinctive seasoning combination, which the company promises will last around two and a half hours while burning.

KFC originally sold the log directly through their website in 2018 and 2019, but now it's available at Walmart ($16), either on the company’s website or in select stores while supplies last (if it's sold out, Amazon or eBay may be your only other options). Considering KFC is owned by Yum! Brands, which also operates Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, perhaps a Crunch Wrap firelog is in our future.
