Introducing Secret Strategist, a New Weekly Newsletter

As editors of a shopping site, and just a group of particularly obsessive shoppers, we unearth a lot of really good stuff on a really regular basis. The irony is, though, that we don’t always have a place to put some of the particularly special things we’ve discovered on the very site we work for. Sometimes a lamp is especially good, and on sale, and two of our really stylish editor’s friends have bought it in the past week, but there’s not really much more to say about it than exactly that.

So that’s what we’re doing with our new newsletter Secret Strategist: making a place for the very best stuff our staff has turned up every week. A particularly handsome pendant, sweet silk baby bloomers, an ABC Carpet and Home sofa unearthed for pennies (or, you know, $400) on Craigslist, the Capezio leotards we just figured out are sold on Amazon, Japanese glasses that make for an especially nice gift— a regular recap of stuff that’s worth-the-shipping-fee, better-than-its-peers, really, extra-extra good.

The newsletter goes out every Thursday, with all the stuff we’d typically squirrel away for ourselves.

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.
