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.

In our end-of-the-week sales-bin sweep, you’ll find a little bit of everything, but the one thing they all have in common is that they’re deeply, deeply discounted. We spotted home goods for 80 percent off, some of our favorite jeans for over 40 percent off, and camping gear for under $20.

Between now and August 28, select items are 20 percent off at Bloomingdale’s and 25 percent off if you are shopping with a store credit card. This applies to a host of items, including some already on-sale goods, but we recommend taking this opportunity to save on full-price fall staples such as this cashmere sweater.

Here’s another wardrobe staple to snag while on sale. These menswear-inspired Reformation pants will be perfect for the office.

And this dress will look great at any upcoming late-summer or early-fall weddings.


For a forgetful person, a handy Bluetooth-tracking device like Tile is priceless, and today it’s a little less expensive — 20 percent off at Amazon.

Everything is currently 30 percent off at statusy baby brand Hanna Andersson, including these striped pajamas for upcoming colder nights.

This aptly kindercore-esque sweater is a great contender for the first day of school.

Sur La Table is in the middle of a cookware sale that ends Monday, so don’t dillydally and miss out on this 30 percent off Le Creuset cast-iron skillet.

The discount code to know for this week’s sale on sale at J.Crew is SHOPSALE. With that, you can take an extra 30 percent off select styles including this slouchy sweater, which is still available in sizes XXS to 3X.

The extra discount brings this dress shirt down to almost 50 percent off.

Bed, Bath & Beyond is having a warehouse sale with items up to 80 percent off, making this plush robe a mere $7.

This cheerful gingham comforter set is 50 percent off and available in full/queen and king sizes.

Enjoy your last days of summer in this trendy cane lounge chair.

Keep the playroom organized with this stylish toy box. Thanks to the wheels, your kid will probably have just as much fun wheeling it back and forth as they do playing with the toys inside.

It’s Barbour and wool for under $25 — it speaks for itself.

Shop the last few hours of Urban Outfitters home sale, where essentials are up to 50 percent off, including this squiggly candelabra. Depending on the taper candles you pair it with, this can fit into any aesthetic you adopt over the years.

Our beloved baggies are still on sale at Patagonia, but sizes are running out. Luckily this fun two-tone colorway is still in stock in every size, so act fast.

Add this sweat-wicking mountain-scape T-shirt to the cart as well.

Our best-in-class less expensive camping lantern is even cheaper at Backcountry right now. Strategist editor Maxine Builder went camping in the Tetons with it last summer and called it a “small and unobtrusive and cute” lamp for the campsite. She added, “It was great for lighting our dinner when you don’t want to feel like you’ve got headlamp tunnel vision and for just hanging out in the tent.”

At Backcountry, we also spotted these nearly 40 percent off wool socks. They’re breathable while still being warm and claim to provide enough cushioning for your feet even during long days.

Still on sale is the Aerogarden Sprout, our best-in-class smart garden. It’s compact, easy to use, comes apart for easy cleaning, and most important, grows bright, tasty bundles of fresh herbs. The cherry on top is that the three-pod garden is currently 30 percent off with code BACK2SCHOOL.

Finally, for a limited time, all Madewell jeans are just $75 when you use the code LUCKYDAY. We like the faded black wash of these, but to find the right pair for you, check out our guide to all of our favorite Madewell jeans.
