As temperatures inch higher, we’ve uncovered a trove of deals to help you prepare for brighter days ahead. There’s some cheerful Scandinavian cookware, for example, as well as several warm-weather-ready sandals and an expert-recommended spot cleaner for those itching to get a head start on their spring cleaning. (As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

Right now, Levi’s is offering 30 percent off nearly everything on its website, including the brand’s ’90s reissue of its classic 501 jeans. This iconic style is perpetually sold out, so the fact that it’s on sale right now is a huge deal — we suggest you don’t dillydally.

Inspired by the Japanese art of origami, this mini Longchamp backpack is the perfect everyday companion: Throw in your essentials when you’re on the go, then fold it up when not in use.

We’re clearly clog fans here at the Strategist, so we were thrilled to see these Madewell clogs on sale for more than 50 percent off at Nordstrom Rack. We have no doubt they’ll become a go-to summer shoe. (Heads up: Sizing is a little limited, so act fast!)

If your home could use a refresh, two furniture upcyclers we spoke to recommend the Bissell Little Green for deep-cleaning carpets, couches, and more. Because it has both a spray and suction function, it “really helps lift all the stains and dirt left behind on the upholstery,” one expert says.

A tried-and-true classic: It’s impossible to go wrong with a pair of original 501s.

According to Strategist senior editor Katy Schneider, these Salt Water sandals will last you many, many summers; she’s been wearing hers ever since her freshman year of college, since they’re “flat but comfortable, even on long walks, and they wear almost unbelievably well — mine are faded, but not trashed or broken.”

Enthusiastic Amazon reviewers rate Columbia’s Arcadia jacket as the best lightweight rain jacket for how “effective” it is at “keeping weather out and warmth in.” Luckily, a version is available for your kiddos as well — and it’s currently almost 50 percent off.

Schoolhouse is taking 15 percent off items from Food52’s Dansk collaboration with the code SPRINGTREAT. This sunny casserole dish, made from durable enameled steel, is sure to brighten up your kitchen.

Or if you’re looking to enliven your tabletop, this whimsical platter designed by Danish ceramicist Niels Refsgaard will bring Scandinavian sensibility to spring suppers.
