Today’s rummage through the internet’s sales bins unearthed a trove of actually good deals on several Strategist favorites. There’s an interior-designer-approved area rug at a deep discount, an under-$40 firepit that ships free, and a universally flattering lip liner that doesn’t smudge.

Abercrombie & Fitch is taking 25 percent off full-price items for a limited time, including this seasonally appropriate cropped button-up. It’s on sale in black, mauve, and the creamy white shown here.

And from the brand’s clearance section, here’s a pair of split-hem vegan-leather pants one reviewer says made them feel “unstoppable.”

Interior designer Jamie Drake told us he prefers the minimalism of “the most natural and basic jute rugs,” suggesting this chunky, fringed style. For a limited time, it’s over half off at Rugs USA.

To complete the earthy vibe in your space, we think this top-rated twine pendant light would pair nicely with the rug above.

A stash of this status chocolate will serve well as a last-minute Easter or Mother’s Day gift.

Another Mother’s Day gift contender, here’s a truly excellent deal on a Series 5 Apple Watch. It can make calls and receive messages, track Mom’s heart rate and fitness levels, and function as a timer or alarm clock.

Keep summer pests at bay with these sticky flytraps, which hundreds of reviewers call a “game changer” for kitchens overrun by fruit flies.

Throw this Pendleton-inspired blanket over the sofa or place it at the end of the bed. It’s 30 percent off — along with just about everything else at Hudson’s Bay.

This tried-and-true Charlotte Tilbury lip liner is matte, quick drying, and flattering on just about everyone. It’s also what Strategist beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton uses for creating a glam lip that doesn’t budge.

Byredo makeup hardly ever goes on sale, which is why we were delighted to find its vegan lengthening mascara for 15 percent off at Nordstrom. It’s in heavy rotation in makeup artist Bea Sweet’s makeup bag, and she regularly uses it on FKA Twigs.

Finally, an under-$40 firepit for summer s’mores-making you won’t regret buying.
