Some kids are already back in school, but if you’re lucky enough to have a couple more weeks of summer vacation left, there are lots of things on sale to help you make the best (of the rest) of the season. I’ve found a sun shelter and beach chair, packing cubes and a travel-size epilator, and a plant-potting station for end-of-summer gardening (or bartending). And if you’re fully in back-to-school mode, you’ll also find Samsung earbuds and a colorful keyboard-and-mouse set for setting up your workspace.

Here’s a pop-up beach tent that will keep you protected from the sun for just $30.

If your Labor Day plans include packing a suitcase, here are some skinny packing cubes. They have a mesh exterior, making it easy to see what’s in them without unzipping.

Don’t forget this travel-size Braun epilator for bikini-line touch-ups on vacation.

For filtered water on the go, this Brita bottle is just $14. It’s on sale in blue …

Logitech POP Mouse
From $27
From $27

This wireless Logitech mouse made our best-in-class roundup, and it’s definitely the cutest of the bunch. It comes in five colors, from rosy pink (pictured here) to a more muted greige.

The matching Logitech keyboard is on sale too. (Most colors are $80, including the pastel one, above — though this black-and-yellow option is $70.)

Like a mop in robot-vacuum form, the iRobot Braava can clean sticky food spills, pet hair, and more from your stone, tile, and hardwood floors — all while navigating around your furniture.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

If your ear canals start to ache after just a few hours of wearing AirPods, try these noise-canceling earbuds from Samsung. They fit snugly inside your ear without being invasive. (The fact that they’re under $100 doesn’t hurt, either.)

Select outdoor furniture is up to 40 percent off at Target, including this stylish beach chair that comes in three patterns and has a handy strap for easy carrying.

This potting station would also work for mixing drinks on the patio.
