You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.

We thought that Columbus Day was going to be the last big sales moment in October, but, boy, were we wrong. There are a bunch of great deals to be had right now: Everlane just replenished its selection of sale items, Bandier is having a 20 percent off Friends & Family sale (which applies on top of already discounted things), plus Nordstrom Rack has a bunch of great loungewear we want to wear through January. All that, plus our favorite bath tray, Susan Kelechi Watson’s tote bag, and Fitbits that are hardly ever this cheap.

Diane von Furstenberg Hazel Mules
$167 at Diane von Furstenberg

A sleek pair of black leather mules you could clomp-clomp in with socks or tights in brisk weather.

Teak Bathtub Caddy
$30 at Bed Bath & Beyond

Writer Verena von Pfetten adores this bathtub tray for reading, watching shows, and enjoying a glass of wine in the tub — now it’s on clearance for $10 off.

Le Specs The Last Lolita cat-eye sunglasses
$59 at Matches Fashion

These cat-eye glasses are very Linda Rodin.

Joseph Joseph Salad Bowl with Servers
$26 at Macy’s

A little salad bowl from English design company Joseph Joseph that looks like it belongs at MoMA.

$26 at Macy’s
with code: THANKS
Eastpak Backpack
$33 at Yoox

A slim commuter backpack with a laptop sleeve from Eastpak — the backpack line of hypebeasts.

Everlane Modern Boyfriend Jean
$48 at Everlane

The ever culty Everlane boyfriend jeans in black are now 20 bucks off.

Everlane Relaxed Soft Cotton Shirt
$48 at Everlane

The blue on this flattering cotton shirt isn’t a solid but a superthin micro stripe.

Everlane Square Jean Shirt
$46 at Everlane

A work, weekend, day, night, wear-it-all-the-time shirt.

Everlane Relaxed Soft Cotton Shirt
$48 at Everlane

The cotton fabric on this white shirt has an almost sheer quality to it that makes it extra amenable to fall layering.

Fitbit Alta Fitness Tracker
$92 at Amazon

If you haven’t gotten on the fitness-activity-tracker train yet, now would be a good time — these Fitbits haven’t been this cheap for a while.

Alternative Eco Sweatpants
$30 at Nordstrom Rack

Still looking for a good pair of slim sweatpants for lounging? We love the stuff from ecoconscious brand Alternative.

Madewell Cottontail Camo Sweatpants
$42 at Nordstrom

And if you’re looking for something a bit splashier, these would be fun with a simple T-shirt.

The North Face Nuptse Vest
$112 at Zappos

North Face makes a great puffy vest for layering under your favorite wool coats (in the event that you’re not looking to go full gorp).

Madewell Denim Kimono Chore Jacket
$89 at Nordstrom

We wouldn’t tie up all the strings on this kimono jacket, but keeping it in the office as an extra layering piece is a stellar idea.

Clarks Addiy Terri
$105 at Zappos

As far as comfortable shoes go, few things touch the orthopedic credibility of Clarks. We like the actual look of these Terris (though we might want to cut off that little leather tassel once we get them).

J.Crew Penny Cross Strap Sandal
$78 at Nordstrom

A pair of medium-height shoes that you could wear to brunch, to work, to a party and look totally at ease.

The North Face Oso Hoodie
$113 at Zappos

We love how tailored this North Face hoodie is — it almost doesn’t look like North Face at all.

Madewell Boxy Crop Jean Jacket
$71 at Nordstrom

Have you heard? It’s all about the boxy but cropped jean jacket. This one’s got some nice yarn-dyed fabric, too.

The North Face Thermoball Full Zip Jacket
$160 at Zappos

Another good layering piece for any winter travels you might have coming up (notice the flattering diagonal quilts along the torso).

Potted Faux 3” Cactus
$8 at Urban Outfitters

We love a cactus, but sometimes even they’re too high-maintenance. Best to go with a faux version.

Murchison-Hume Clean Starter Kit
$28 at Nordstrom

We love the smell of Murchison-Hume (see here) and would have the freshest house with this clean starter kit featuring four products: Counter Safe All-Purpose Surface Cleaner, Boys’ Bathroom Cleaner, Heirloom Dish Soap, and Premium Glass Cleaner.

Diane von Furstenberg Cubic Print Striped Silk Scarf
$71 at Matches Fashion

Just the sweetest thing tied around a glum handbag.

Madewell Textured Cardigan
$40 at Nordstrom Rack

Another contender for “the sweater I keep at my desk when the office thermostat is set to kill me.”

T3 SinglePass Curl 1.25” Curling Iron

T3 SinglePass Curl 1.25” Curling Iron
$129 at Dermstore

A very striking-looking curling iron from California-based luxury hair-tool brand T3.

Madewell Cozy Short Walker Cardigan
$50 at Nordstrom Rack

This cozy cardigan is the one you would wanna keep in the closet for weekends when you don’t plan to leave the apartment.

Report Slicker Chelsea Rain Bootie
$30 at Nordstrom Rack

Our favorite rain boots right now are Chelsea ones (no muss, no fuss!), and we just love the pointed toe and matte look on this pair.

Everlane Classic French Terry Square Hoodie
$34 at Everlane

We like how Everlane does slightly turned-up versions of the basics — this is a hoodie, but, like, a sophisticated hoodie.

Natori Classic Pajama 2-Piece Set
$50 at Nordstrom Rack

Get your extremely charming and menswear-inspired pj’s on sale here!

Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star Stainless Steel Chef Knife
$50 at Saks Off Fifth

A seven-inch chef knife from German brand Henckels for a fraction of its original price.

Friend Assembly Medium Keith Face Planter
$24 at Nordstrom

The funniest little planter (we look at the mustache and laugh) that you could store pencils and pens in, too.

Diane von Furstenberg Continental Wallet
$91 at Diane von Furstenberg

A long wallet that’s almost like a party dress — the wide stripes with just a bit of sheen add a festive touch

Everlane Soft Cotton Popover Shirt
$53 at Everlane

The band collar on this cotton shirt gives it just a bit of an unexpected silhouette.

Bandier Lilybod Loulou Legging
$44 at Bandier

Bandier is having a big Friends & Family sale on its site right now (everything’s an additional 20 percent off in your cart), including on these interesting-looking leggings.

Bandier Splits59 Brooks Tight
$56 at Bandier

Here’s another pair of workout tights that are all-black save for a few bands of color at the ankle.

Urban Outfitters Faux Hide Black + White Bath Mat
$15 at Urban Outfitters

Why get real animal skin when you can get an adorable faux hide bath mat?

Urban Outfitters Reversible Faux Leather Tote Bag
$40 at Urban Outfitters

A super work bag that’s reversible and also celebrity-endorsed. Susan Kelechi Watson of This Is Us owns this and says she got it after seeing it on a friend: “It was a fly bag! I asked her about it, expecting it to be some $300 thing, and when she told me she got it at Urban Outfitters, I was like, “Oh, whaaat Urban Outfitters?” So for my birthday that year, I asked my mom to get it for me, and I now get so many compliments on that bag. I’ve had it for so many years, and I still get compliments.”

UGG Classic Short Leather Boot
$120 at Nordstrom Rack

So ugly, so comfy, and now so on sale.

Citizens Of Humanity Gia Pintuck in Lanzy
$89 at Need Supply

We are very into these jeans: The azure shade of the blue, the crop at the ankle, the straight and slightly baggy legs, plus a high waist.

$89 at Need Supply
with code: 20FORYOU
Bandier Joah Brown Constant Tank
$35 at Bandier

A blank tank top you could sweat in without worry at your next spin session.

Natori Plush Robe
$45 at Nordstrom Rack

The softest-looking robe in the prettiest shade of brown-pink. Would make a terrific holiday gift for mom.

Frye Vicky Engineer Leather Boot
$150 at Nordstrom Rack

We all need a good winter boot, but nobody makes sturdy seasonal footwear like Frye. Just be sure to treat the leather.

Nordstrom at Home Cuddle Up Faux Fur Pillow
$34 at Nordstrom

Put this pillow on your couch and bam: instant décor zhuzh.
