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.
The weather’s warming up, and so are the in-season deals. In this end-of-week sweep of the internet’s sales bins, we found deep discounts on a relationship-saving robot vacuum, a bunch of summer-ready dresses and blouses, and even a few things that would make an excellent Father’s Day gift. (And, as always, if you want even more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter.)
The best way to cook those frozen chicken tenders you keep telling yourself you’ll stop buying.
Now that you’re heading back to the gym, you’ll need something to keep all your stuff together. (But this backpack is nice enough that you could bring it to the office, too.)
Macy’s is having a massive one-day sale — that actually ends on Sunday — and there are generous discounts on lots of in-season clothing, including this pretty, paisley-printed shift dress that’s available in sizes 0X to 3X.
If your sweatpants are getting too hot for sleeping, here’s a lightweight, short-sleeve cotton pajama set.
Take an extra 25 percent off already on-sale items at Anthropologie this weekend, including this colorful gingham top that’ll be quite appropriate for your next park hangout.

Molly Young tipped us off to these fruit-shaped hand creams from K-beauty brand TONYMOLY back in 2016, and almost five years later, we’re still charmed to find it on sale, because, as Molly writes, “After you finish the hand creams — which are lightly scented and nongreasy — you will want to rinse out the gleaming containers and repurpose them for small sundries.”
If you’re still easing your way out of sweatpants and pajama bottoms, here are some half off, plus-size linen pants from Eileen Fisher.
When we talked with hikers and generally outdoorsy folks about their favorite hiking sandals, Chacos came up over and over. One person even told us they hiked the 1,200-mile Pacific Crest Trail in one pair of Chacos — so they’ll definitely keep you comfortable on your walk through your neighborhood.
Just heavy enough to be cozy. Just light enough that you won’t literally sweat through it when you fall asleep on your couch after a long July night.
And finally, if you’re still searching for a nice-looking office chair, here’s a stylish option from Hay.
