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.

Three big sales are happening this weekend. It’s your last chance to shop Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale before it ends on Sunday night, Everlane is discounting its best sellers by 25 percent, and Article is offering deals on all its outdoor furnishings. Scroll on to see my top picks, as well as a mishmash of other excellent deals from across the internet’s sales bins, like mosquito-repelling bracelets, a supportive Tempur-Pedic pillow, and the banana-shaped toy that every cat I’ve ever met is obsessed with. And as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for five more deals handpicked by yours truly.

$10 for 10

Keep mosquitoes at bay with these essential-oil-infused — geraniol, lemongrass, and citronella, specifically — bracelets. Each one lasts about ten days and looks “like a hair tie and smells like a picnic in the park,” according to Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo.

Tegu’s magnetic wooden building blocks often appear on our lists of best toys for kids, as they’ll entertain kids of all ages while also promoting early STEM skills.

Packit Freezable Lunch Bag

Back-to-school sales have begun, so I suggest nabbing this freezer-safe, foldable lunch box from Packit.

From $20 for 3

A trio of cotton shorts for your little one.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale ends on Sunday night, so don’t dillydally. Lingerie expert Cora Harrington says Chantelle’s fabric is “soft, smooth, seamless, super comfortable, and it wicks moisture away effortlessly from the skin (a necessity in hot weather!).”

This duo from Living Proof contains full-size and travel-size versions of Rio’s favorite dry shampoo, which turns her hair from stringy and greasy to clean and voluminous in seconds.

This rarely-on-sale Longchamp for weekend getaways is available in navy blue, red, and gold.

Dusen Dusen’s cheerful patterned duvet set is still in stock in queen and king sizes.

The Nuna Rava is one of our best convertible car seats. It’s $150 off in black at both Nordstrom and Pottery Barn Kids.

Clearance items are an extra 25 percent off this weekend, too, making these Levi’s cutoffs — which come in sizes 24 through 34 — just $35.

The undisputed best cat toy is this banana from Yeowww! — it even made the Strategist 100 — and this bundle that includes some extra catnip is 22 percent off.

Best-selling styles are 25 percent off at Everlane through Sunday night. You can find the brand’s Italian leather Day Glove shoes across our archives, including our best-in-class ballet-flats roundup, as “they stay true to their name and truly fit like a glove,” according to Maisonette co-founder Sylvana Ward Durrett.

The Cheeky mom jean is a favorite of several cool women we’ve talked to, including our own Liza Corsillo, who says, “I like that the waist actually hits me at my waist and curves in, so I never get that little gap in the back. I also love the length.”

Our former associate editor Louis Cheslaw owns the athletic version of these stretch-denim jeans and says they “might just be the most comfortable I’ve ever owned.” The sizing is extensive, from waist size 28 to 40 and inseam length 28 to 34.

I spotted lots of Patagonia gear on sale at REI, like these Baggies-adjacent shorts that have a six-inch inseam and are available in five colors.

A water-repellent jacket for unexpected summer rainstorms.

One of our best pillows, made of supportive Tempur-Pedic, is 25 percent off.

Lots of shoes are on sale at Shopbop right now. Here are some stylish — and still work-appropriate — tasseled suede loafers from Dr. Martens for 40 percent off.

These classic Converse low-tops are somehow still in stock in pretty much every size.

Writer Latifah Miles says this sheet set from Cozy Earth feels like “crème brûlée — minus the sugar crust” and has a “silky smooth — and shiny — texture that I love.”

This is the cheapest you’ll ever find Cozy Earth’s linen duvet cover — and there are five colors to choose from.

From $129

All outdoor furnishings and décor are on sale at Article until August 7. This Japanese-inspired lantern is available in two sizes, and would look at home in your living room, too.

Strategist writer Lauren Ro purchased this teak patio set last year and says that it was surprisingly easy to assemble and still looked great after leaving it outside during the winter months.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
