In today’s sales-bin sweep we found many of our favorite brands on sale, including Patagonia, EltaMD, and Bose, as well as lots of season essentials like fall clothes from Madewell, back-to-school gear, and blue-light-blocking glasses for heading back to work.

Backcountry is taking up to 60 percent off their top brands, bringing these Patagonia shorts to just under $50. The have an adjustable waist thanks to the built-in belt, they’re water resistant, and they have plenty of pockets and compartments for essentials, gear, and snacks.

At Wayfair, we spotted this wicker basket for over 50 percent off. It’s deep enough to hold everything from extra linens or act as a planter for your fiddle-leaf fig, but thanks to the flat-ish sides and back it can also be tucked away flush against the wall.

If you’re looking for some status-y (and on sale) upstate merch, here’s a beanie from Sky High Farm Workwear, which supports Sky High Farm in Ancramdale, founded by artist Dan Colen.

These noise-canceling headphones — the earbud version of one of our favorite over-ear headphones for travel — are the cheapest we’ve ever seen them. They’ll carry you through Zoom meetings, phone calls, and workouts.

Send your kid back to school with an enviable lunch in this compact Thermos perfect for soups and leftovers. It comes with a reusable spoon and a name tag to help them keep track of it.

Today is the last day to shop the Dermstore Anniversary Sale, during which select items are 25 percent off using code CHEERS. This includes a Strategist-reader and dermatologist favorite, the EltaMD UV Clear sunscreen. It provides physical and chemical protection, has lots of antioxidants to protect from free radicals, and doesn’t dry with a greasy white tinge.

Also on sale are these pimple patches, a favorite of our beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton. These clear hydrocolloid stickers help “suck up all that excess oil in your skin and flatten zits out in as fast as one night,” she reports. Whenever she feels the urge to pick at her skin, she just slaps one on. For more Dermstore deals, you can check out more of our picks here.

Felix Gray makes one of our best-in-class blue-light-blocking glasses. They filter more than 50 percent of the blue-light spectrum and more than 90 percent of the most impactful wavelengths emitted by smartphones, laptops, and tablets, and until August 21, all styles are 15 percent off with code GLASSES15.

If your mind is already on fall, Madewell has you covered. It’s taking 25 percent off pre-fall styles like this long-sleeve denim dress with a subtle checkerboard pattern.

This chore coat, complete with waist-cinching details, is also included in the sale and available in sizes XXS to 3X.

Finally, thanks to the slightly oversize fit, this dress will be easy to throw on before work on groggy mornings.
