With this week’s roundup, you can score some super affordable tools at Sears to help do chores around the house, and then reward yourself with the cheapest cruise to the Bahamas we’ve seen this year.

Up to 60% Off Tools at Sears
Need a new drill, or maybe just some hand tools? Sears cuts up to 60% off a selection of tools and accessories. Opt for in-store pickup to avoid shipping fees, which start at $5.99 for most items and $69.99 for larger items. Alternatively, select orders of $59 or more qualify for free shipping. A couple best bets, both with free shipping, are the Craftsman 230-Piece Standard & Metric Mechanic’s Tool Set for $99.99 (low by $86); and the Craftsman Portable Peg Clamping Workbench for $99.99 ($60 off). Of note, Shop Your Way Rewards members will earn a Sears credit with this purchase and may be eligible for additional credits and discounts. Sale ends October 31.

4-Night Bahamas Cruise for Two from $338
Vacations to Go offers a Carnival Cruise 4-Night Bahamas Cruise with prices starting at $338 for two people sharing a cabin. That’s the best price we’ve seen for any Bahamas cruise of four or more nights this year. The cruise aboard the Carnival Ecstasy departs Miami on December 7 and stops in Half Moon Cay and Nassau, Bahamas. Other short Bahamas cruises are available for departure during the lull in travel demand in early December, at similarly inexpensive rates.

Now is a fine time to book travel, because it is one of the things that doesn’t see best-of-the-year (or even very notable) discounts on Black Friday. For more things to avoid on next month’s big shopping weekend, see our guide.

While you’re out hiking, it will be great to carry along some tea or hot cocoa to keep you warm. REI Outlet offers its 17-oz. Classic Vacuum Bottle in Stainless Steel for $9.73.
