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.

If today’s end-of-week sales-bin sweep could talk, it’d say there are still plenty more months of summer heat left to go. We found an excellent deal on some dermatologist-recommended sunscreen, a pair of waterproof clogs for unexpected monsoons, and a virtually indestructible salad bowl for your next post-vaccine patio get-together. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

You can take 30 percent off select sunscreens over at Ulta, including the dermatologist-recommended sunscreen version of our favorite Neutrogena Hydro Boost gel moisturizer.

We also found an excellent deal on Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes — a Y2K staple — that New York Magazine praised way (way) back in 2008 for giving “high shine and moisture — without tackiness — and wonderful hints of color.”

Foreo LUNA Mini 2

The mini version one of our favorite facial-cleansing brushes, this little silicone exfoliator gently pulses while cleansing to help lift away dirt, oil, and excess sebum.

Statement sterling-silver hoops for under $20.

For the little one who’s headed back to school next month, this lunch bag has an insulated lining and convenient front pocket.

For a limited time, Best Buy is taking $25 off this fitness roller, which is celebrated by both personal trainers and chiropractors for its muscle-penetrating and pain-alleviating vibrations.

Something to protect your toes from unexpected summer showers that’s a lot more breathable than those chunky rain boots.

$15

West Elm is still taking an extra 50 percent off select clearance items with code EXTRA50, including this summery handwoven throw blanket.

Billie Eilish’s sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, is (finally) out today. We’re certain it’ll sound even better on vinyl.

ASOS is taking up to 80 percent off select in-season styles, including these Converse Chuck 70 high-tops in a funky floral print. (And if it just so happens to be your first ASOS purchase, you can take an extra 20 percent off your order of $50 or more with code ASOSNEWTREAT.)

$23

You’ll never have to worry about staining this tie-dyed Champion crew neck.

We’d layer this cowl-neck top — which is still available in sizes S to XL — over a bralette or bathing suit.

Pair these Calvin Klein sandals with the top and Juicy Tubes above for a full Y2K-inspired fit. (Which is what I, who just admittedly purchased a pair, intend to do.)

$26

In case you missed it, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is now live for everyone, meaning you can snag a sizable deal on one of our favorite Nike sports bras for medium-intensity workouts.

While it’s not exactly jacket season, this lined, water-repellent jacket from The North Face is all you’ll need to stay toasty this fall.

We’re not ones to pass up 40 percent off splatterware, let alone these shatterproof, patio-friendly salad bowls.

Swap out your paper napkins for these more sustainable (and top-rated) Italian linen ones, which will only get softer with each wash. (And if the navy pictured doesn’t match your dining décor, there’s also black, light blue, olive green, and plum on sale.)

$40 for 4

And if over a year of working (and lunching) from home has taken a toll on your dinnerware, swap out your set with these stoneware salad plates, which are both microwave- and dishwasher-safe.
