You might 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 state of post-holiday sales is excellent as we close out the week, with lots of discounts on things we’ve written about before. There’s a convincing Instant Pot dupe for better soups and stews, an expert-recommended baby monitor that rarely goes on sale, and the beginner-friendly knitting kit beloved by our newsletter editor. (And if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

If you’re in need of a little end-of-week pick-me-up, Anthropologie is taking an extra 50 percent off all sale items at checkout, including this best-selling cashmere beanie. Along with the white shown, it’s still in stock in six other colors.

According to a handful of experts we’ve spoken to, blocking blue light from screens before bed — such as with these on-sale tortoiseshell glasses — can help improve sleep.

Should you still be searching for a new notebook to start off the new year, look no further than this classic Moleskine. It’s a longtime Strategist favorite for its buttery-soft cover and bleed-proof pages.

If post-holiday brain fog has started to settle in, these Olly gummies are formulated with brain-boosting Alpha GPC, ginseng, and B vitamins to aid with focus and concentration.

Nike Tech Hip Pack

Ideal for carrying keys, masks, snacks, dog-poop bags, and all of your other daily essentials.

Part windbreaker and part crewneck sweater, this Nike long-sleeve has a snap shoulder placket to help you pull it on with ease and a mesh liner to keep the fabric from clinging to your skin.

Layer this chunky wool blanket over your duvet for extra warmth, or keep it in the living room as a cozy throw.

Keep Fido warm and dry with this adjustable fleece-lined raincoat.

According to hundreds of reviewers, this family-size pressure cooker is functionally the same as the more-expensive Instant Pot, and is just as easy to clean.

Coach is taking up to 50 percent off select styles through January 17, including this classic wristlet. It’s on sale in red, too.

In case you missed it, Great Jones is offering Strategist readers 30 percent off all cast-iron cookware with code NYMAG30 until Sunday, January 9. That includes the brand’s take on the classic Dutch oven, the Dutchess, which is “perfect for simmering soups and braising cuts of meat that take hours to reach fall-apart tender,” says our kitchen-and-dining writer Emma Wartzman.

Now through January 13, Madewell is offering up to 70 percent off select styles with code CLASSIFIED as part of its Secret Stock Sale — bringing this relaxed-fit cotton long-sleeve down to just $15.

A favorite of five experts we’ve spoken to, this best-in-class baby monitor from Nanit provides a bird’s-eye view of your child and captures HD-quality video. Plus, it tracks sleep metrics and breathing patterns with an included breathing band to provide insights and personalized tips.

If your New Year’s resolution is to take up a new hobby, try our our newsletter editor Mia Leimkuhler’s favorite beginner-friendly sweater-knitting kit. The sweater is “deceptively simple” to make, she says, and takes just under a week to complete.

Makeup artist Sofiia Strykova says soothing ingredients like cucumber extract and rosewater make this Fresh cleanser “perfect for extra-sensitive skin.” She explains that it “leaves your skin toned and brightened, eliminating an extra step from your skin-care routine.” Today only, it’s half off at Sephora.

Another today-only deal, this treatment toner from Cosrx contains both AHA and BHA, two exfoliants Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says are “excellent for clarifying the skin.”
