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).
