There are lots of highly discounted, fall-ready home (and wardrobe) upgrades in our latest micro-sale installment, like a four-piece food-storage set, a hand-knotted doormat, and some colorful New Balance sneakers for him.

There are still lots of gems to be found in Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale (which runs until August 30), like these classic New Balance sneakers in a decidedly toddlercore — yet surprisingly neutral — color palette.

And these stretchy fleece pants from Adidas, complete with side-seam zip pockets and zip cuffs.

For some good, clean (socially distanced) fun in the park or lawn, this four-player croquet set comes with six mallets, six balls, nine wickets, and a carrying case for easy transportation.

Writer Nicolaia Rips told us that these high-rise, high-leg briefs are “slyly utilitarian” and “sexily minimalist.” They’re also just $17 for a three-pack.

This linen duvet cover has a light and breathable 102-thread count, internal corner ties to hold the comforter in place, and will get softer with each wash.

Some glass food-storage containers from Martha Stewart, in some distinctly fall colors.

We found this Zoom-appropriate sleeveless shirt, made from a machine washable cotton blend, in COS’s reliably good sales section.

West Elm just added a bunch of new discounts to its sale section, like this marbled wall-peg set that’s perfect for hanging masks and reusable bags.

And this hand-knotted doormat made from coconut husks — to keep the outdoors out.

Some durable, easy-to-clean plaid place mats for late-summer BBQs or early fall picnics.

And finally, a cozy (and machine washable) chenille throw in a goes-with-everything pink blush. (The blue pictured here is, unfortunately, sold out.)

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.
