If spring cleaning has turned into spring redecorating, you’re in luck: Today’s sales-bin sweep includes several deals to help you refresh your space. There’s a Strategist-tested pot that’s easy to clean, an extra-plush pet bed for cats and dogs, and a convincing dupe for that Instagram-viral shoe rack.

J.Crew is taking an extra 60 percent off sale items with code SHOPNOW, bringing this V-neck one-piece down to under $40. Sizes are going fast (three have sold out while writing this), but most between 0 and 24 are still in stock.

“I have cooked every meal in this thing,” says our columnist (and veteran journalist) SuChin Pak of Our Place’s Perfect Pot. “I fried eggs in it this morning for my kids. I cook fried rice every night for my son; it’s the only way he’ll eat vegetables. It’s so easy to clean; it’s so light.” Now through May 8, it’s 24 percent off at Our Place.

Add some color to your dinner parties with these stackable drinking glasses, which we named some of the very best in our guide to the best glassware.

Imagine being wrapped in this dress as the sun sets during your next beach vacation.

Lots of storage essentials are 30 percent off at Target, including this three-drawer closet organizer. It’s an affordable alternative to the Container Store’s splurgy Elfa system. (And in my opinion, it looks a bit nicer.)

Speaking of dupes, here’s one for Open Spaces’ Instagram-viral shoe rack.


If mom prefers to do her manicures and pedicures at home, this giftable kit from Burt’s Bees includes a hand cream, foot cream, hand salve, cuticle balm, and even a lip balm.

If you’re not willing to spend $39 on some status hand soap, here’s a trio from Mrs. Meyers that work out to a little over $3 each.

Already a steal at full price, reviewers say this wooden platform bed from Strategist-favorite Zinus is easy to assemble and “impressively sturdy.”

Lastly, Chewy is taking an extra 20 percent off select pet beds at checkout. This one — already on sale in Mocha — comes in two colorways and three sizes and has a plush-fiber fill made from recycled plastic bottles.

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.
