The next big sales holiday isn’t until Memorial Day, but we still found lots of worthy deals — several of which we’ve written about before — in today’s sales-bin sweep. There’s a do-it-all toaster oven for quicker sides and crispier leftovers, an excellent deal on a better-than-Elfa closet organizer, and a waterproof rain jacket for weathering spring showers.

It’s still a bit of a splurge on sale, but with a classic turn-lock clasp and an additional crossbody strap, this leather Coach tote can be worn both day and night.

Finished hems and a generous inseam make these denim shorts perfect for a park hang with co-workers.

Wear them with these ’70s-inspired Nikes and a pair of white crew socks.

From $32

Select styles for men, women, and children are up to 50 percent off at Columbia, including this lightweight rain jacket. Made with a waterproof nylon shell, it’s light enough to fold into your bag once the showers pass.

Dr. Bronner’s all-in-one castile soap is a favorite of many a Strategist reader, writer, and even drag queen Alaska Thunderfuck. “You can clean your body with it. You can clean your car with it. You can clean almost everything with it,” she says. “It’s definitely not strong enough to take off drag makeup, but it’s a good everyday wash.”

Use these hanging wire baskets — which attach to the inside of your cabinets using a CommandStrip-like adhesive — to keep everything from cleaning supplies to spices close at hand.

Speaking of wire baskets, I purchased two of these organizers (tragically, at full price) for extra clothing storage last month. They look even better in person — they’re nicer than the Container Store’s splurge-y Elfa system, IMHO, and they took under ten minutes to assemble.

This Strategist-favorite scrub towel is infused with the charcoal of Japanese oak, or binchotan, which is known for its purifying, detoxifying, and antibacterial properties.

Think of this top-rated Ninja toaster oven like a sous chef: It can air-fry, bake, roast, broil, sear, and toast, all with the push of a button.
