Fall is chugging along, which means today’s sales roundup is full of cozy picks for the cooling weather. That includes a layer-friendly shacket, a beloved pan for soups and stews, and a winter boot to protect against puddles. Plus, if you’re on the hunt for Halloween decorations, we found a slightly less massive (but no less majestic) version of the Home Depot skeleton.

This Aqua shacket comes in a versatile oatmeal color that goes with anything — and it’s currently 25 percent off at the Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family Sale. It’s perfect for the lovely transitional fall weather we’ve been having.

A mere downpour is no match for this waterproof Rains backpack, which comes in a variety of simple, neutral colors. Tiffani Gibson, the senior manager of corporate communications at Lime, thinks this backpack is a “great option for rainy weather, especially if you prefer the minimalist look.”


We’ve praised the AirPods Pro many times — both for their noise-canceling feature and their ability to stand up to heavy sweating. If you’ve been holding out on investing in them, they’re now as cheap as they’ve ever been, at nearly 30 percent off.

For those looking to upgrade their home workout routine, this TRX GO suspension-training set is currently 30 percent off at Amazon. Strategist contributor Steven John is a big proponent; you really can get “a full-body workout using a few straps of superstrength woven nylon,” he writes, since they allow you to perform “chest presses and declined push-ups right in the doorway.”


With its stylish, functional design, Our Place’s cult-favorite Always Pan counts stylist Mecca James Williams and our very own Rio Viera-Newton among its admirers. This isn’t the cheapest we’ve ever seen this pan, but hey, 20 percent off is nothing to scoff at.

Sorel Caribou Waterproof Boot

Gear up for winter with a pair of rugged, utility-inspired Sorel men’s boots, which are over 50 percent off at Nordstrom right now.

Urban Outfitters is running a 20 percent–off sale on fall beauty favorites, including this dermatologist-recommended Slip pillowcase that promises to be anti-aging, anti–sleep crease, and anti-bedhead.

Also included in the sale is this statusy hand wash from Ouai. Fans of fresh, floral fragrances will love the soap’s notes of citrus, rose, magnolia, and linden blossom.

So you’ve managed to successfully banish blemishes with ZitSticka’s pimple patches. Follow up with these clarifying Hyperfade stickers to help lighten any residual dark spots or hyperpigmentation.

If you once again missed out on Home Depot’s infamous 12-foot skeleton this Halloween season, fear not: This Seasonal Visions version is almost as colossal but equally spooky. We suggest snapping it up now while it’s still $50 off.

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.
