In today’s sales mishmash, we’ve got options for whatever your summer plans might need: an Adidas backpack or Longchamp tote for transporting books (or snacks), Birkenstock slides or a sandal-hiking-shoe hybrid from Keen for tromping, and some bedding to slip into at the end of a long day. Plus, one of our favorite dog cameras is over 30 percent off today, which lets you check in on, toss treats to, and even speak with your pup if you’ll be out all day.

If you’re back-to-school shopping, I spotted several Adidas backpacks on sale at Amazon. I like this one with the classic three stripes for just $34.

Furbo’s treat-tossing pet camera is the perfect gift for the dog parent who has an app for everything, according to Kate Jaffe of Rover. It “lets you interact with your pet even when you’re far away, sharing treats, telling them they’re such a good girl, and snapping some photos, too,” she says.

At Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, you can find lots of rarely on-sale pieces like these Birkenstocks. The only catch is that the color options can be a bit limited, but this neutral-ecru color will match everything in your closet.

Plenty of Longchamp totes are on sale, too. This one is made from recycled-nylon canvas and has the iconic jockey logo embroidered on the front.

We trust REI to make affordable, reliable camping gear for everyone from experts to complete beginners — so if your kid is going on their first camping this summer, get them this sleeping bag, which comes in two colors (teal and red).

Everything at Boll & Branch is 20 percent off with the code SUMMER23 through July 23. This set of long-staple, organic-cotton sheets comes in 11 colors and is a must-have for actor Suzanne Somers, who told us they become softer with every wash.

This is one of our favorite down pillows, and it is filled with triple-washed, responsibly sourced, farm-raised duck-down material and feathers. Its unique three-chamber design helps it maintain its fluffiness and structure over time by keeping the fill in place.

The same code also applies to already-on-sale products, making this sweet pajama set 32 percent off.

The Six Bells is having a super-rare sale right now. Hundreds of products are up to 50 percent off, including this quartet of waffle-knit kitchen linens.

Here’s a lightweight, 100 percent cotton throw for over half off.

In fugly shoe news, I’m kind of obsessed with these strappy Keens, which would make great beach shoes.

For those immersed in tinned-fish TikTok, I’d buy these clams for the packaging alone. (Although it does help that they’re half off.)
