Lots of you shopped the early Labor Day sales over the weekend, but the deals are still coming in strong — and some of them won’t last even until next Monday. There’s a flash sale over at Sephora with a handful of actually good products slashed to half-off until midnight tonight. I’d also recommend taking a deep dive into Target’s Summer Send-off Sale, which launched today — or just scroll on to see my favorite picks.

Target has finally added Labor Day deals. (It’s technically called the “Summer Send-Off Sale,” but I know better.) Some of the best deals are on gear for your kitchen, like this stainless-steel saucepan from Cuisinart for just $26.

For those with a few kids — or just one who tends to “misplace” things — these Thermos water bottles are $4 each.

And for adults, this insulated (and dishwasher safe) travel cup comes in five colors.

To round out all those kitchen deals, Our Place is offering up 40 percent off for its Goodbye Summer sale. Yes, we love the brand’s Always Pan, but don’t sleep on its dishware: These Hasami Porcelain-like plates stack well for easy storage and come in four neutral shades.

There’s a surprisingly good sale at Sephora right now, with a handful of half-off picks, including this gentle — “like rub-it-right-over-your-eyelids-with-no-stinging gentle” — cleanser from First Aid Beauty.

The dermatologist-approved skin-care device that deletes peach fuzz is also half-off until midnight.

Our best under-$1,000 laptop is even cheaper. It’s not the newest MacBook Air, but it’s plenty powerful if you spend most of your time sending emails and watching YouTube videos.

Amazon is price-matching lots of outdoor gear from REI’s Labor Day sale, including these Strategist-vetted wireless cycling headphones that use bone-conduction technology so you can listen to music without blocking out the world.

If your long-weekend plans include car camping or a cross-country road trip, the Thule Force XT has one-handed opening capabilities and a capacity of 450 liters.

One of the best Labor Day sales that’s already live is at Madewell, where already-on-sale pieces are an extra 30 percent off with the code COOLDOWN. This short-sleeve linen button-up has been the most popular product with Strategist readers since we posted about it last week.

It’s not quite ramekin season, but you’ll want to nab this adorable pastel set from Le Creuset’s massive Factory to Table sale before they sell out.

Maximalist puzzle-maker Piecework is having a warehouse sale, so you can get up to 70 percent off its colorful 500- and 1000-piece puzzles.

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.
