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.

Stuff is getting cheap, guys. That’s because the sales-on-sales — where already-on-sale items are discounted even further — are out in full force. Below, the best deals we found this week.

Martha Stewart Collection Waffle Queen Oversized Blanket

If your down comforter is feeling a little stifling, consider swapping it out for this easy, breezy waffle blanket that feels very house on the Cape.

If you’ve been meaning to experiment with white jeans, these $39 ones are a good place to start.

Eileen Fisher Tencel and Recycled Polyester Slip Dress, Regular & Petite

This (machine-washable) LBD from Eileen Fisher would look great with a long-sleeved tee underneath come fall.

Patagonia Black Hole MLC - 45L

Huckberry’s summer clearance sale has begun, which means you can get this classic Patagonia suitcase (that features a slew of separate zip-pockets to make packing more organized) for 20 percent off.

Lululemon Brunswick Muscle Tank

​Surprisingly delicate for a “muscle tank,” we could see this looking just as good tucked into a pair of jeans.

This Timex x Todd Snyder watch collaboration is meant to pay homage to’ ’60s- and ’70s-era Formula One drivers.

Some crisp cotton sheets spun in Portugal courtesy of Upstate. They’re “inspired by coastal weekend getaways just outside the city.”

Madewell Fraser Slim Pants

As we noted earlier this week, stuff on sale at Madewell is an extra 40 percent off. Since last we checked, new stuff’s been added to the sale section, like these best-selling “slim” pants that are machine-washable and have side seams that “angle forward to create the slimmest possible look.”

Madewell Denim Sleeveless Zip-Front Jumpsuit in Conroy Wash

Can we put in a request to Madewell to get a push alert whenever a new denim jumpsuit goes on sale?

Madewell Ruffle-Strap Wrap Dress in Orchid Bouquet

You can wear this black floral dress in August and also in October.

Madewell 3-Pack Cotton-Modal Bikini Undies Set

This trio of underwear is worth it for the pineapple panties alone.

The North Face Canyonlands Full Zip

We covered Zappos’s 20th birthday sale earlier this week, but since there are literally thousands of things on sale, we missed a few items, like this North Face zip-up jacket. Noted one happy reviewer: “Its material feels like god himself wove it and slapped it on my back, 10/10.”

$42 at Zappos
with code: BDAY20
Pendleton Oversized Jacquard Towel

This Pendleton bath towel is a nice way to gussy up the bathroom.

$32 at Zappos
with code: BDAY20
Marmot PreCip Stretch Jacket

If you have any summer camping trips on the horizon (or are just in the market for a sporty but elegant fall jacket).

$84 at Zappos
with code: BDAY20
Camper Misia, Black

These black Camper sandals would look great with some high-waisted cropped pants.

$109 at Zappos
with code: BDAY20

A bag in a bag from Staud that promises to add some “sophisticated kitsch” to your wardrobe.

Sigerson Morrison Sunshine Suede Slingback Point-Toe Flats

An exceedingly elegant pair of suede slingbacks from Sigerson Morrison.

ZAC Zac Posen Belay Mini Leather Bucket Bag

In terms of other sales we covered this week, over at Barneys Warehouse, we missed a few other insanely good deals like this Zac Posen mini bucket bag.

Prada Leather-Trimmed Floral Shopping Tote Bag

Believe it or not, $335 is a pretty much unheard of price for a Prada bag.

Mepra Fantasia 24-Piece Flatware Set

It’s hard for us to get excited about flatware but this 24-piece set from Italian line Mepra is really doing it for us. It’s available in a bunch of other colors, too.

This clever tricycle grows with your kid, and has four settings: infant trike, push trike, learn-to-ride-trike, and classic trike.

Nobody Denim Milla High-Rise Flared Jeans

$83 at Moda Operandi
with code: PLUS20
Smythson Panama Leather Luggage Tag

We know this sounds nuts, but this is a very good price for a Smythson luggage tag, it’d make a great gift, and … the holidays are not that far off.

$60 at Moda Operandi
with code: PLUS20
Roxanne Assoulin Set-Of-Three Hip Hop But Not Lagoon Enamel And Swarovski Crystal Bracelets

If the super-delicate jewelry trend is feeling a little tired, this trio of bracelets from Roxanne Assoulin is pretty much the opposite of that.

$120 at Moda Operandi

Same deal with this choker.

DL1961 Rachel High-Rise Flare Jeans

The blue hem is what does it for us with these plus-sized DL1961 jeans.

&.Layered Gingham Puff-Sleeved Top

When have we ever been able to resist a red gingham top?

Peri Home Mingled Stripe Set of 6 Towels
