Many people across the country faced record-breaking temperatures in August, so with summer still in full swing, we turned our focus toward portable air conditioners, fans and dehumidifiers. We also highlighted everything from the best kids lunchboxes and backpacks to the best student discount programs, dorm room essentials and dorm kitchen buys, with the return to school approaching. To help readers navigate buying in bulk — which can often provide discounted prices as we head into the school year — we looked at Costco (and various warehouse club memberships) and shared some of our favorite Costco products.

Once you’ve perused the above shopping guides, we’ve rounded up 12 of the most purchased products we covered this month.
