While you wait for tomorrow’s deals to drop during Strategist’s Two-Day Sale, allow me to direct your attention to another savings event happening today and tomorrow: Wayfair’s annual Way Day sale. It’s a major sitewide blowout with thousands of discounts on furniture, bedding, kitchen appliances, bathroom hardware, décor, and more — up to 80 percent off. The outdoor section is especially good, and we’ve cherry-picked some of our favorite deals, below. You can see absolutely everything the site has on sale here — but don’t dillydally, as all the discounts end tomorrow at midnight.
A timeless wooden Adirondack chair that’s resistant to water, rust, and harsh sunlight — and it’s a whopping 50 percent off.
Joola, a brand that also happens to make some of our favorite table-tennis tables, also makes some very nice pickleball paddles. This on-sale set has everything you need to dink like a pro: Two paddles, two balls, and a sling bag.
This large yakitori grill was recommended to us by Leslie Roark Scott of Ubon’s Barbeque in Yazoo City, Mississippi, who says it is ideal for those in a “tight space. It’s the perfect size for a couple of steaks and holds heat like a champ.”
Our best-in-class pick for a rotary clothes-drying rack is on sale. Reviewers praise its lightweight profile, sturdiness, and ease of use.
Hot summer days can quickly give way to chilly nights — keep warm with this classic firepit that’s nearly 60 percent off.
If you’ve got children or pets, this wood-burning firepit has a fully enclosed spark screen for added protection.
This retro three-piece bistro set is made of weather-resistant, powder-coated steel, and comes with two vintage-inspired clamshell seats and a round pedestal table. It’s available in four colors, and this bright green is the cheapest option.
For a faux wicker option, we like this set that one interior designer told us “lasts a lifetime.” It includes a coffee table, a love seat, two armchairs, and foam cushions.
Here’s a steel rocking chair to bring a bit of Palm Springs to your space.

If you’re raising chickens, teenage homesteader Savannah Brown (who has raised chickens for seven years) recommends this Ecoglow chick brooder, which, she says, is “less of a hassle than a heat lamp, and chicks can get their backs against it to stay warm.”
For a cushioned patio set, it “doesn’t get any more classic than this Lucier outdoor set from Birch Lane,” says Heather Goerzen, the lead designer at Havenly. She adds that it channels the French Riviera or Amalfi Coast thanks to its elegant wrought-iron frame and white Sunbrella foam cushions.
