The state of sales is truly excellent this Tuesday morning, with a bunch of still-active Labor Day sales alongside stand-alone discounts on our favorite jeans for women, patterned curtains, visual timers, water bottles, and more. (As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

Today is the last day of Christy Dawn’s Harvest Sale, making this the final opportunity to save over $175 on this organic-cotton prairie dress (that has hidden elastic at the waist for extra comfort). Note: The full sale price will be applied once you add the dress to your cart.

The brand’s Noah Pant — a perfect-for-fall sailor pant with a higher waist and slightly cropped leg — is also half off.

As rain starts to appear more often in the weather report, take advantage of the last day of Columbia’s Labor Day sale and score a pair of its ultradurable hiking boots for just $75.

Strategist senior editor Jen Trolio bought an Aura smart frame as a gift for an elderly relative and found it “easy to curate a collection of photos and get my siblings and other relatives in on the fun — all through the app — before the frames were even delivered.”

You may not have heard of the model, but Levi’s Wedgie jean currently holds the very top spot in our guide to the best women’s jeans. Bird founder Jennifer Mankins shared that they have a “natural rise that hits right at your belly button, so it’s high, but not too high,” while writer Hailey Rizzo praised their butt-lifting power, “whether you’re working with one or not.”

If you prefer a skinnier fit, we found another pair of Levi’s over at Macy’s with an even greater discount.

As well as our favorite jeans and favorite photo frames, our favorite patterned curtains are also discounted today as part of Pottery Barn’s Warehouse Sale, which ends soon. The curtains’ narrow, irregular-size stripe has a “casual and coastal feel,” according to Modsy designer Katherine Tlapa.

Pottery Barn also sells pet-friendly throws online in the exact same upholstery options it offers for its chairs and sofas. You can choose from all of the fabric options they have at the store, including velvet, twill, and machine-washable designs — and for the next couple of days, you can do it all for 20 percent off.

Just in time for back-to-school season, here’s more than 25 percent off the visual timer one parent used to help teach their schedule-ignoring little ones more about the concept of time.

And finally, for back-to-office season, here’s a vacuum-insulated S’well that’ll keep cool drinks cold and hot drinks hot, and has a cap that screws on so tight that our editors never worry about theirs leaking.

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.
