If your New Year’s mindset has you looking to add some new staples to your wardrobe or home, we’ve found a bunch of stylish and practical things in today’s sales sweep. That includes a vacuum-insulated (and rarely on sale) travel mug, the lightweight sneakers beloved by runners, and two cast-iron pans for the price of just one.

These running shoes from Nike are a favorite of Vanessa Chu, co-founder of fitness studio Stretch’d. “They are superlight and were specifically designed to prevent running injuries,” she says. Select colorways are up to 23 percent off at both Nike and Bandier.

Unlike most of the plant-based protein shakes I’ve tried, these vegan ones from OWYN are truly delicious. Today only, 12-packs of all the brand’s flavors (which include dark chocolate, smooth vanilla, cold brew coffee, strawberry banana, and — my personal favorite — cookies & creamless) are nearly 20 percent off.

Through January 14, Tarte is offering 30 percent off its cult-favorite Shape Tape Concealer — the cheapest we’ve seen it since Cyber Monday. It’s a favorite of Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton, who uses it for covering active breakouts.

There are lots of exceptionally good (up to 85 percent off) deals over at the Outnet’s end-of-season sale, like this glittery and Valentine’s Day–appropriate Moschino tee. Note, however, that all clearance items are final sale.

Also at the Outnet, here’s a stretchy, two-tone sports bra from Reebook x Victoria Beckham with removable padded cups and a supportive underband.

If you’re in the market for a moisturizer that won’t aggravate sensitive skin, this one from First Aid Beauty — now 25 percent off with the code NEWYEAR over at Skinstore — has calming ingredients like oatmeal and allantoin. Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst uses it as the first step in her double-moisturizing routine.

From $35

HAY is taking 15 percent off select furniture and décor as part of its Living Room Sale, including its playful rice paper–and–bamboo shades. All shapes and sizes — which range from ellipse to round to oblong — are on sale, though note that the large round shape, shown here, won’t ship until next month (we feel it’s more than worth the wait).

Also included in HAY’s sale is its portable mushroom-shaped lamp, a favorite of Strategist writer Chloe Anello (who loves hers so much, in fact, that she deemed it her favorite purchase of 2021). It gives off “enough light for me to read a book without straining my eyes,” she says, and “looks like an objet d’art stationed on a table when not in use.”

J.Crew is taking 25 percent off full-price items with the code EPIC. I’m particularly drawn to the brand’s new line of recycled techwear-meets-prep nylon totes. (There’s a backpack and belt bag too.)

If you’re in need of something to keep the little ones entertained this winter, this under-$10 81-piece art set will work like a charm: It comes with glitter crayons, glitter paints, glitter glue, a paintbrush, watercolor paper, model magic shimmer, and coloring pages.

Rarely-on-sale Yeti is taking 25 percent off select Rambler drinkware, while supplies last. This 14-ounce lidded mug is double-walled and vacuum insulated to keep hot beverages hot and cold beverages cold. (It’s also a handy container for soup or oatmeal.)

This cast-iron set comes with two 10-inch frying pans. They’re compatible with both gas and electric stoves and oven-safe up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If the red shown here isn’t your thing, they’re also on sale in an Yves Klein–esque blue.

Finally, it’s still a bit of a splurge even on sale, but we spotted this 55-inch Sony smart TV — compatible with both Apple AirPlay and Google Assistant — for $150 less than usual.

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.
