If spring cleaning is your least favorite part of the changing seasons, I spotted a few items while perusing the internet’s clearance bins that can help. Below, you’ll find our favorite weekly planner for half-off, a cheery doormat to protect your precious floors from mud, and a cache of storage boxes and bins from the Container Store for 20 percent off. Plus, sale is on sale at Cuup thanks to a Strategist-exclusive code.

Our best overall weekly planner is half-off at Amazon in gray (pictured here) and burgundy. Self-described “planner power user” Perrin Drumm says the planner’s “hardback is perfect for planning on the go or taking notes in your lap and the layout is ideal: days on one side, spaces for notes on the other.”

Intex Explorer K2 Kayak

The portable inflatable kayak that has inspired thousands of rave reviews on Amazon is nearly half-off today. Reviewers say it inflates and deflates quickly, is easy to steer, and is roomy enough to fit large dogs or several kids.

Target’s Spring Home sale for Target Circle members — those in its free loyalty program — has up to 50 percent off spring-ready furnishings, linens, and home décor. This sweet grid throw blanket is available in sage green, pale orange, and cream (pictured here).

In addition to adding a pop of color, this doormat will keep muck and grime out of your entryway. Very cute (and you don’t need a Target Circle membership for this discount)!

Select products from Target’s collaboration with Magnolia are on sale through Sunday — and you won’t need a Target Circle membership to enjoy the savings on this, either. Here’s a wooden tissue-box cover to make your Kleenex look more aesthetically pleasing.

Over at the Container Store, storage options from its Clearline and Manhattan collections are 20 percent off through March 27. This curated collection of bathroom storage can be purchased as a bundle, or you can buy each component individually.

Tuck away sweaters, scarves, and wool socks in these lined boxes, which come in two sizes.

Already-on-sale pieces from Cuup — the much-loved lingerie brand and makers of some of our favorite bras for boobs big and small — are an extra 20 percent off through this weekend with the code STRATEGIST20. In-stock sizes and colors are all over the place, but this butter-yellow bikini top is still available in almost all sizes.

Just for today, this Rio-approved primer for broken-out skin is half-off at both Sephora and Ulta. Rio says it provides an even, matte base for makeup all while treating acne with salicylic acid.

Lime Crime’s classic matte liquid lipstick is also half-off just for today. It’s still in stock in 15 colors and is both vegan and cruelty-free.

Los Angeles–based clothing brand Michael Stars is offering 20 percent off sitewide through March 28 with the code SPRING23. This breezy double-gauze dress — which is available in nine colors — would be a nice addition to your carry-on, since it can also work as a bathing-suit cover-up.

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.
