Lots of Labor Day and end-of-summer sales are winding down today, so now’s the time to hit “check out” on any items that may be languishing in your cart. We’ve also unearthed plenty of picks to get you ready for fall, including a do-it-all ceramic pot, a stylishly understated duvet cover, and some durable rain boots that can stand up to any downpour.

Exa High Fidelity Foundation

Our pick for the best less expensive hydrating foundation for mature skin, Exa’s High Fidelity is half off today only during Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty. Makeup artist Tamah Krinsky loves how it “has major payoff but moves like a moisturizer.”

A newer model of the earbuds that Strategist contributor Maggie Slepian says fit better and last longer than AirPods, now on sale for just $100. “Because they fit better, the Anker earbuds do a better job of blocking out ambient sounds, even though they are not noise-canceling,” Slepian writes. “The tight fit results in cleaner and crisper audio, too.”


Apt2B is in the homestretch of its Labor Day sale, which offers 15 percent off sitewide and 20 percent off purchases over $3,000; the retailer won’t be participating in Black Friday or Cyber Monday sales, so now’s the time to take the plunge on that new sofa or office chair you’ve been eyeing. Interior designer Jennifer Wallenstein recommends this minimal, high-end sleeper couch for its “simple, modern design.”

Today is the last day of Our Place’s Goodbye Summer sale. We recommend snagging the brand’s Auntie Approved Perfect Pot in an autumnal sage shade, just in time for soup and stew season.
