With plenty of winter weather left to get through, we dedicated today’s micro sale to finding lots of mood-lifting deals to brighten your week. There’s a pair of fugly-cool slip-ons beloved by several Strategist staffers, half off a loungewear set fit for all-day lounging, and a hand-painted trinket plate that’s sure to make you smile.

Lisa Says Gah is hosting another 48-hour sample sale on lots of past-season styles including this textured long-sleeved bodysuit. It’s made from a stretchy nylon-cotton blend and is still in stock in sizes S to XXXL. (Just note that all sale styles are final.)

We’d layer this tie-back halter top over a mesh long-sleeve until the weather warms up.

This psychedelic lounge set can be dressed up or down, especially with the right pair of shoes. (And if you’re worried about length, the pants have a petite-friendly inseam ranging from 27 to 29 inches.)

The Vancouver-based artist behind Ami Like Miami shapes and paints her porcelain ware by hand, meaning each dish will be unique.

These cotton-blend crew socks (designed in collaboration with Strategist-favorite Portland soap company Wary Meyers) have a thick sole for extra comfort and a thinner top for breathability.

Instead of Airdropping photos to your friends, print them out with this retro-looking portable printer that connects to your phone via Bluetooth.


Waxing specialists love this pubic-hair oil (which is good for preventing razor bumps) thanks to antiseptic and antimicrobial ingredients like grape-seed, jojoba, and tea-tree oils. It’s currently 30 percent off at Skinstore with code COUNTDOWN. But act fast — the discount drops by one percent every hour.

Ban.do is taking 90 (yes, 90) percent off select items as part of its Warehouse Sale, including this faux-fur zip-up. It runs quite oversize, so we recommend sizing down.

Ban.do’s mystery bags have also been restocked for the sale. According to the brand, each Goody Bag contains around $90 worth of recent best sellers — including stationery, drinkware, and travel accessories — for just $25.

Finally, this well-reviewed three-gallon trash can opens and closes automatically to the presence of your hand. This saves you time, reduces your contact with germs, and makes you feel like you’re one with the force. Plus it requires only two AA batteries.

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.
