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.

This week’s sales roundup is a biggie … Below, the never-on-sale beauty serums, $7 enamel bowls, and 80-percent-off men’s boots we dug up.

Thirstystone White with Blue Stripe Round Bowls, Set of 3

We’ve been on a bit of a Macy’s-clearance-bin kick — so many insanely cheap home goods in there, if you do some digging. For instance, this trio of enamel-coated bowls, which, if you do the math, comes out to two bucks a bowl. Meanwhile, you get free shipping with a purchase of $49 or more, so might we interest you in …

$7 at Macy's
with code: SPRING
Mario Badescu 2-Piece Mask & Mist Set

Tavi Gevinson’s favorite facial spray (normally $7), plus a rose hips mask (ideal for dry skin, and normally $20), on sale for $18!

The North Face Men’s Standard Issue Headband

It’s not quite the season for this men’s fleece headband, but it will definitely still be in style next year.

Godinger Bristol White Bone China 20-Piece Dinnerware Set

This 20-piece (i.e., for four people) dainty dinnerware set from Godinger is an almost unheard-of 82 percent off.

$30 at Macy's
with code: SPRING
Equipment Clarke Striped Button Up Top

We like the chunky cuffs on this otherwise traditional striped cotton blouse from Equipment.

Kate Spade New York Set of Two Tumblers

We love a plastic tumbler, and these, from Kate Spade, feature subtle little gold dots.

Diane von Furstenberg Tilly Satin Wrap Dress

Whenever we see a DVF wrap dress for under $200, we like to flag it. This one is made from 100 percent woven silk satin.

Diane von Furstenberg Phoenix Wrap Mesh Dress

This wrap dress is not as cheap, but is so elegant we had to include it.

Diane von Furstenberg Nylon Backpack

Just a fun, leopard-print nylon backpack.

Proenza Schouler Leather Pumps

Speaking of not-cheap … these Proenza Schouler heels — but they were even more expensive ($595) at one point.

Miista Knotted Gingham Jacquard Slides

It’s almost showing-your-toes season, and how sweet are these slides from London shoe line Miista?

Clare V. Suede-Trimmed Floral-Print Leather Pouch

If you have any summer weddings on the horizon, this floral Clare V. would make a nice festive touch to an outfit. There’s a leopard-print Clare V. clutch on sale, too.

Eberjey Amarena Shorts PJ Set

These cherry-adorned shortie pajamas from Eberjey are perfect for spring.

Illesteva Marianne Sunglasses

Same with these teeny-tiny Illesteva cat-eye sunnies.

Adidas High-Rise Split-Ankle Track Pant

These Adidas track pants are more flattering than your standard pair of track pants.

Nike Air Max 1 SE Overbranded Sneaker

They’d look great with these black Nike Air Maxes.

Kitty Face Acrylic Mirror

A cat mirror that would be perfect for a kid’s room (or your own room).

Fjällräven Kanken Backpack

Some late-breaking sales news: Urban Outfitters is having a one-day-only bag sale (this Friday, March 29), where a whole bunch of rarely on-sale backpacks, totes, and the like are 30 percent off — like this classic Fjällräven backpack, which comes in a rainbow of colors. (There’s also a mini-Kanken and a padded-laptop-Kanken on sale, too).

Matt & Nat Paris Belt Bag

A fancy-looking Matt & Nat belt bag you don’t have to feel any qualms about (because it’s made from vegan leather).

Patagonia Arbor Classic Backpack

This Patagonia backpack is waterproof, made from recycled polyester, and features a padded laptop sleeve. There’s another maroon backpack on sale, as well as a Patagonia belt bag we’ve written about before in previous sales posts.

The North Face Berkeley Duffel Bag

An extra good deal, since this duffle was discounted to begin with.

Polo Ralph Lauren Polo Player Tote Bag

And a fun Polo Ralph Lauren alternative to an L.L. Bean bag — perfect for summer weekends out of town.

Mikasa Swirl Banded 16-Piece Dinnerware Set in Blue

Not as good of a deal as the Godinger set above, but this “swirl-banded” array of dishes from Mikasa is really lovely.

Wamsutta Bordered Linen Napkins (Set of 2)

Can’t resist a linen napkin with a colored border.

Short Sleeve PJ Set

We continue to be proud of knowing who Something Navy is, so we felt okay putting two PJ sets in this roundup.

Coach Denim Bootie

It’s not a boot, not yet a … not-boot.

Crewcuts by J. Crew Reversible Sequin Drawstring Bag

A sequined kids’ backpack, perfect for the li’l ham in your life.

Cos Pleated Strapless Dress

Just a few things we missed from the Cos sale we wrote about earlier this week: Maybe it’s because the model looks like Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, but this dress does really seem like something she might have worn.

Cos Silk Jersey T-Shirt Dress

Some sweet bell sleeves on this relaxed silk-cotton (and machine-washable) T-shirt dress.

Cos V-Neck Swimsuit

A pretty pink one-piece (with a low scoop back).

Cos Belted Gown Top

An easy-breezy 100 percent-cotton kimono wrap.

Men’s Original Penguin Ned Leather Chukka Boot

This is a loony-banana price for these leather boots. They’re available in black, too.

Coyuchi Organic Mediterranean Robe

Just throwing it out there: one of us got a Coyuchi robe for our husband and he loves it.

Diptyque Baies Scented Candle

Last week, we noticed that a bunch of beauty products that are never on sale were on sale at Net-a-Porter. Turns out, stuff’s still on sale! Like this Diptyque Baies candle.

Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask

And Charlotte Tilbury’s famous Goddess Skin Clay Mask.

$44 at Net-a-Porter
with code: netaporter15
Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum

Oh! And the cult Vintner’s Daughter anti-aging serum we previously wrote about and which sold out is no longer sold-out!

Missoni Mare Zigzag Knit Headband

This metallic Missoni Mare headband will, as the description promises, “bring a vibrant finish to relaxed summer edits.”

M.I.H. Jeans Contrast-Stitch Straight-Leg Jeans

It’s the red stitching that makes these white jeans for us.

Safavieh Laurena Pillow

A shibori-esque pillow that will look great with pretty much any kind of solid-colored couch.

Farrow Miili Seersucker Jumpsuit

A soon-to-be-seasonally-appropriate seersucker jumpsuit. (Say that ten times, fast.)

Aidan Mattox Addiena Dress

If there are any black-tie events in your future … here’s a dress from Aidan Mattox at an extra 40 percent off (applied at checkout), which we missed in our Anthro sale roundup.
