Today’s sales-bin sweep revealed lots of reliable Strategist favorites on sale, from seamless mesh underwear to “cloudlike” running shoes. And if you’re in the mood to spoil your pooch, plenty of pet gear is on sale at Chewy, including a shaggy, doughnut-shaped dog bed and a squeaky squirrel toy that will keep your pup entertained for hours.

We crowned this two-in-one set from Waterpik the best (less expensive) water flosser that comes with a toothbrush — and it’s currently discounted 25 percent for even more savings. It’s recommended by Dr. Elisa Mello of NYC Smile Design for its ten pressure settings, ranging from ten to 100 psi, as well as three sonic modes for the toothbrush.

This textured tank top made from 100 percent organic linen is the perfect transition piece for fall. Layer it with a tight-fitting turtleneck underneath or an oversize denim jacket on top.

Lucky founding editor Kim France says On Gossamer’s mesh bikinis are “superlight, highly breathable, and — most important — hugely VPL resistant. Seriously, it’s as VPL resistant as a thong.” Right now, they’re on sale with an extra 20 percent off on select colorways, including this subtle kiwi shade.

Ali Feller, marathoner and host of the Ali on the Run podcast, has remained loyal to her Hoka Cliftons ever since she started wearing them in 2015. “They make me feel like I’m running on a springy cloud or the moon,” she told us.

Multiple Strategist staffers swear by Brooks’s line of Ghost running shoes. Strategist writer Lauren Ro reports that the shoe bed is “cushioned yet supportive,” enveloping her feet in “the most comfortable way,” and managing editor Kelsie Schrader prefers their “rigid support.”

Hydro Flask’s answer to the Thermos, this stainless-steel container is reinforced with double-wall vacuum insulation to keep food hot for hours.

Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo says her dog, Uli, “spends hours snoozing in her Best Friends by Sheri doughnut bed every day.” Uli also uses it as a toy by “digging into it and flipping it over on top of her ball so she can then look for the ball and flip the bed again,” Corsillo writes.

If your dog gulps their food, a puzzle food bowl like this maze-style one can help. Nikki Naser, resident pet expert at Chewy, says dogs will “eat up to ten times slower with these.”

And finally, if you’re looking for a gift for a dog parent, this plush puzzle tree is a reliable standby for Strategist senior manager of audience development Mia Leimkuhler. “It’s a hit every time,” she promises, adding that the tree and its squeaky stuffed squirrels keep her dog, Reggie, occupied for hours.
