In poking through the internet’s many sales sections today, we noticed a handful of Strategist-approved stuff that would make all this time at home a touch cozier and easier. For instance, those experiencing some cooking fatigue can get a half-off Instant Pot (which can basically cook nine different grains with the press of a button); guys looking to get a handle on quarantine beards or hair can get an electric trimmer experts recommend for maintaining both for just $35; and parents who want to shop local and keep little ones’ hands busy can get a family-friendly puzzle on sale at Bookshop. All of those deals are below, along with a very soft fitted sheet from Parachute’s Last Chance Sale and some roughly $50 basics from the final day of Anthropologie’s essentials sale.

This facial cleansing brush is dermatologist-recommended, and Foreo happens to make some of columnist Rio Viera-Newton’s go-to tools for combating cystic blemishes.

We’ve said that the Laundress’s floral-and-eucalyptus-scented home cleaning line is like “dry shampoo for your apartment.” Right now, the brand’s nontoxic, all-purpose cleaning solution is less than $10.

Sleep is of the utmost importance during this (and any) stressful moment, which is why we want to remind you that some of the rarely on sale sleep stuff from last week’s Parachute sale — including this 100 percent Egyptian-cotton fitted sheet in a calming powder blue — is still discounted.

A bunch of wardrobe essentials are up to 40 percent off at Anthropologie right now, including this drapey button-down that’s available in sizes XXS Petite to 3X.

$52

Some (discounted) cool-woman-approved Supergas just in time for spring. The fact that you can’t really leave the house means they’ll stay cleaner for longer!

$49

If your go-to pair of sweatpants is looking a little worse for wear as we enter another week of quarantine, might we direct you to this under-$50 pair of reviewer-adored Adidas sweats.

For those experiencing cooking fatigue, the aforementioned half-off Instant Pot that cooks nine types of grains with the press of a button.

Support local bookstores and keep little hands entertained with your purchase of this still-in-stock 200-piece puzzle from Bookshop that features a vibrant, undersea scene (making it good for kids and adults alike).

If your barber usually trims your hair or beard, now might be a good time to pay them (in the form of a gift card) for a post-pandemic shave. Until you can cash that gift card in, though, experts say the Philips Norelco OneBlade is a tool you can use to maintain facial and top-of-head hair at home.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
