As we head into the weekend, we’ve found deals on Halloween costumes for the early birds, Christmas mugs for the even earlier birds, and lots more things that’ll make you more comfortable in the cold weather ahead. If you want even more sales coverage, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter.

We’re fans of Brabantia’s compost bins, trash cans, and clothes-drying racks — and the brand makes a surprisingly sleek clothes hamper.

A fancy container to stash treats for your favorite feline. (The dog-shaped one is on sale too.)

In case you’re into shopping for Christmas décor very early — this set of four mugs is only $30.

Or if you’re still scrambling for Halloween costumes, Target is having a sale on matching PJs for the whole family, including kids and toddlers.

Over at ShopDisney, dozens of costumes and accessories are up to 40 percent off through October 14. We’re fond of this Beauty and the Beast dress for ages 3 to 13, but there are also options for adults.

It’s your last chance to shop Ulta’s Fall Haul sale before it ends on Saturday, October 1. We’ll be stocking up on Differin, which treats everything from cystic acne to melasma to buttne.

And though we’ve reached the end of sandal season, it’s not a bad time for you to shed some extra skin from your feet with Baby Foot, a Strategist favorite since 2016 that’s now 30 percent off.

There’s a whole cache of on-sale beauty products at Amazon, too, including these cooling eye patches from K-beauty brand Tony Moly that are infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate your under-eye area.

These teeth-whitening strips were the sleeper hit with Strategist readers during Amazon’s Prime Day sale in July. When you use the on-site coupon, you’ll get 22 treatments for just $36.

A dermatologist-recommended sunscreen for just $8 because, yes, you still need to wear sunscreen in the winter.

While these Bose headphones are great for getting into the zone at work, we found gym buffs appreciate them for workouts. One personal trainer liked the “comfortable yet tight fit” they provide, which keeps them from moving during exercise. They’re also very close to the cheapest we’ve ever seen them.

Several Strategist staffers — myself included — own Jungmaven’s surprisingly soft hemp tees, which are now 36 percent off in six spring shades.

J.Crew has several good sales happening right now, including 50 percent off already-discounted clearance items, like these actually nice-looking blue-light-blocking glasses that are just $18.

Or full-price J.Crew items are 30 percent off with code SHOPNOW. It’s a good time to stock up on these work-appropriate — but unstuffy — button-downs available in several patterns as well as classic, tall, and slim fits.

We’ve written at length about Simon Miller’s ultratrendy Bubble Clogs — pair them with this fruit-salad scarf to really lean into the geriatric-millennial aesthetic.

Full-priced clothing and jewelry are up to 25 percent off during Neiman Marcus’s Friends & Family Sale, which wraps up on Sunday night. We love Sweaty Betty’s yoga pants, but these stretchy leggings would be great for more high-intensity workouts or running errands.

Exercise dresses are everywhere these days — this one from Beyond Yoga has cute keyhole straps on the back.

A comfy bralette for days when an underwire bra is definitely not happening.

Bergdorf Goodman has slashed prices on its fall collections, which include these Strategist-approved mom jeans from Agolde. There’s also an extensive collection of cute — if still slightly overpriced — children’s clothing and accessories on sale.

At a reasonably priced $40, you won’t be too heartbroken if you accidentally leave your Le Specs on the subway.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
