Another day, another deal (or 11): We found several Strategist favorites in today’s sales-bin sweep to kick off the week. There’s a full-coverage concealer for all skin types, airtight pantry bins beloved by professional organizers, and a top-rated moka pot that makes “hot, strong espresso” in two minutes flat.

J.Crew is taking up to 70 percent off select sale styles with code SALETIME. That would include this cozy cashmere sweater, which has a slightly cropped silhouette and relaxed fit.

It’s not exactly sleeveless-dress season, but at 76 percent off, this cotton maxi dress will be well worth the wait for warm weather’s return.

A breathable cotton button-up that’s ideal for layering.


This little money tree — considered by some to be a symbol of prosperity — requires only indirect light, making it one of the easiest houseplants to care for.

Keep pesky gnats at bay with these sticky flytraps, which hundreds of reviewers call a “game changer” for kitchens overrun by fruit flies.

Teamson Kids Retro Play Kitchen

If you’ve got a little one on your holiday list this year, no child will be able to resist this retro kitchen play set. It comes with an interactive oven, refrigerator, and microwave plus a cabinet under the sink for storage.

Today only, this bucket bag from Kate Spade is $149 thanks to an extra discount on a previous sale. It’s large enough to stash all of your daily essentials from water bottles to notebooks.

Macy’s is taking up to 15 percent off select (and rarely on-sale) beauty items with code FRIEND. According to several makeup artists we’ve interviewed, this full-coverage concealer from Nars is “great for all skin types,” including oily and mature. Plus it ships for free.

If working from home has taken its toll on your pantry — or if you’re looking for a new organizing project — today is the last day to take 20 percent off our favorite airtight food-storage containers at Sur La Table with code FALL20.

You could also put that coupon toward a three-cup Bialetti moka pot, which reviewers say brews “hot, strong espresso” in about two minutes. (It’d make an excellent gift for the coffee connoisseur in your life, too.)

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.
