Rain and snow are keeping most of us cooped up indoors, but retailers like Urban Outfitters and Food52 have put a nice selection of home décor on sale to keep living spaces cheery until spring. Everlane slashed prices on a ton of our favorite athletic gear for those with New Year’s fitness goals, and I spotted several exfoliating skin-care products in SkinStore’s clearance bin.


It’s officially the season of slush and road salt, which means it’s a good time to buy a powerful steam mop — and the Strategist-recommended Shark S3501 is just $60 at Amazon. Strategist editor Maxine Builder used it to spend “a Sunday afternoon deep-cleaning my hardwood floors” and says “I would definitely recommend this one to anyone who even dares to think their floors are grime free.”

Home décor is up to 50 percent off over at Urban Outfitters. This mid-century-modern-inspired lamp is on sale in white, lavender, and mustard yellow.

A shower curtain that would make a fun housewarming gift for your favorite plant parent.

This hoodie from Everlane is on sale in seven colors, though you can’t go wrong with classic charcoal gray.

Strategist writer Tembe Denton-Hurst says these are “the benchmark of truly excellent legging engineering” due to their thin but compressive fabric that feels much more expensive than it is. They’re currently two for $98, a savings of $38.

For post-workout lounging, or an extra layer on a cold day, try these organic cotton sweatpants.

Over at SkinStore, sale items are an extra 10 percent off with the code WINTER through Monday. Slough off winter skin with this scrub that combines notes of bergamot, mandarin, rose, and strawberry.

Strategist senior editor Simone Kitchens swears by the kidney-shaped Tangle Teezer hair brush. “Post–shampoo and conditioner, the forgiving plastic bristles detangle my insanely knot-prone curls with ease — no yanks, no tears; 30 minutes later, another pass through air-dried ends gives me that triangular halo-fuzz that I’m forever reaching for.”

Christmas décor is deeply discounted at Food52, in case you’re already thinking about this year’s holiday season.
