There are lots of things we’ve written about before in today’s sweep through the internet’s end-of-season sales, including a two-in-one moisturizing oil, a carry-anywhere backpack, and some actually comfortable (and WFH-approved) denim.

This over-three-feet-tall Connect Four can be played out on the lawn for some good, clean (and responsibly-distanced) neighborhood fun.

If you happen to be quarantining with family back in your hometown, we’re certain nobody at your local grocery store will be able to recognize you in these oversized Chloé sunglasses when paired with a mask.

Baggu’s end-of-season sale is still going strong, with gems like this cabana-striped tote made from durable canvas.

Anthropologie is offering an extra 25 percent off already-on-sale items (with the discount applied automatically at checkout), so you can snag this fall-ready chore jacket from Lee for half the price.

And for late-summer, backyard BBQs, a pair of teak whale tongs.

Urban Outfitters is taking 40 percent off select best sellers at checkout, like our favorite straight-leg Levi’s that one cool person told us are “almost as comfy as sweatpants.”

If you’re one of the many folks who’ve opted for a buzzcut during quarantine, we found Chris Black’s go-to “exceptionally moisturizing” hair and body oil to help keep dandruff at bay.

Here’s a pair of sweat-wicking hiking (or running) shorts from Nike with an elastic waistband and lots of pockets.

Chris Black, who buys a new pair of white sneakers every year, calls this classic Vans style “the perfect summer shoe,” as they’re “understated, durable, eternally cool.”

Strategist writer Lauren Ro deemed this Fjallraven backpack — which she uses for traveling, commuting, and as a diaper bag — her best purchase of the decade. (And we think this colorway looks a smidge kindercore, no?)

And finally, a set-it-and-forget-it pressure cooker that braises, bakes, steams, and sautés in minutes — and connects to your smartphone for easy monitoring and programming.

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.
