While you likely spent most of December shopping for loved ones, you should spend January — the start of post-holiday sales season — picking up a little something for yourself. We found lots of deep discounts on upgrades for your home, wardrobe, and makeup bag in today’s sale-bin sweep, including an affordable, elegant dresser, a technical backpack for climbing and commuting, and a cult-favorite Vitamin C serum.

After scrolling through page after page (after page) to help my partner find a new dresser, we finally settled on this under-$200 one. I really like its modest height and not-too-orange stain. Plus, it doesn’t scream faux mid-century modern like a lot of other internet furniture.

Today only, Amazon is taking 25 percent off our favorite reusable bags for storing leftovers and stashing snacks.

This math-exploration set from Osmo will turn a kid’s screen time into an actually-sort-of-educational activity.


Now through January 17, Nordstrom is taking 20 percent off select styles from Zella for men, women, and kids. You can’t go wrong with the brand’s classic high-rise leggings — a favorite among reviewers and Strategist readers. They have a not-too-long 29-inch seam and are made from soft, moisture-wicking fabric.

Ssense’s sale is still going strong, with new styles (and further discounts) added daily. We think this mesh turtleneck top from Barcelona-based brand Gimaguas would look especially cool worn under a white T-shirt with some silver jewelry.

Ideal for climbing or commuting (or both), this Nike technical backpack features adjustable shoulder straps, a padded laptop compartment, and lots of zippered pockets.

Lisa Says Gah is also having an end-of-season sale, with discounts up to 80 percent off. It is my personal philosophy that no winter outfit can’t be made better with a plaid bucket hat.

If your years-old claw clips are missing a few teeth, try one of the many statement hair accessories — like this flower-shaped clip — that are also included in the sale.

Given that the cult-favorite Sunday Riley C.E.O Vitamin C Brightening Serum is $85 on its own, the inclusion of the brand’s caffeine-infused Auto Correct Eye Cream makes this limited-edition skin-brightening set a decent buy at the full price. With the discount, it’s a steal.

Speaking of on-sale sets, this bundle from Briogeo — the maker of one of our favorite hair masks — comes with three hydrating, hair-smoothing products for the price of just one.
