We’ve written about lots of the items in today’s midday sales roundup before on the Strategist, including a classic backpack from L.L. Bean, a cheap but expensive-smelling candle, and a professional-organizer-recommended food-storage container.

Way back in 2017, we dubbed Maison Louis Marie one of our favorite makers of cheap but expensive-smelling candles. Later, Outdoor Voices founder Ty Haney told us she burns this woodsy No. 04 scent at every store, from Soho to Nashville.

This design-y water bottle from Hay converted one former Strategist editor from a water hater to someone who drinks it all the time, and it’s on sale now at Need Supply.

Madewell is offering 50 percent off select swim and sandals, including cover-ups, with code WHATADEAL — like these subtly striped tie-dye-print board shorts that are easy to slip on whether you’re at the beach or staying on your couch.

L.L. Bean is taking 20 percent off all backpacks with code PACKS20, so you can snag this Strategist-approved classic backpack for the little one heading back to school (or for yourself).

Since your apartment likely isn’t as air-conditioned as your office, here’s a Zoom call–appropriate shirt made of breathable linen.

If you’re looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones that actually noise-cancel, you can’t do much better than this top-rated pair from Bose, one of our favorite wireless-headphone brands.

If self-isolation snacking has taken its toll on your pantry — or if you’re looking for a new project — we found our favorite airtight food-storage containers on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond.

For a modern, summery take on gingham, here’s a breezy, cuffed-sleeve minidress complete with pockets.

Since we’ll likely be WFH for the rest of the summer (if not the year), replace your makeshift dining-slash-desk chair with this much more supportive (and handsome) task chair that’s nearly half off.

Stressful times call for stess-relieving measures, meaning when we find a full-body-massage chair for under $400, we say “Go for it.”

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.
