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.
Yesterday, I posted our first round of Labor Day sales, and a few more have cropped up this morning. Most are on back-to-school styles — like polos and khakis at Target, and lunchboxes at L.L.Bean. I’ve got a close eye on SkinStore’s Labor Day sale, because of the sheer volume of Strategist-approved skin-care products. Scroll on to take a peek, and as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage, including five extra deals I’ve handpicked for our subscribers.
If AirPods aren’t your thing, these noise-canceling Beats earbuds are $50 off at both Amazon and Target.
Amazon’s classic voice-activated smart speaker is 35 percent off and comes in black, white, and blue.
This is a bit niche, but this survivalist-approved water filter can remove lead, parasites, bacteria, and chemicals from your water, and this one can be used with a straw, a plastic bottle, or in-line hydration bladders.
A robust selection of kids’ uniforms are on supersale at Target, from polo shirts to chinos.
I also spotted this uniform for office-bound adults on sale, too.
You can eke at least another month of summer-evening hangouts with this loveseat with removable cushions.

Pre-fall styles are 30 percent off at Madewell with the code COOLDOWN. These flattering jeans have a flare leg that’s not too wide.
The discount applies to already-on-sale styles from the men’s and women’s sections, like this not-too-structured blazer.
This scrub uses a blend of glycolic and lactic acids to help loosen skin that congests hair follicles and pores. It’s formulated to tackle keratosis pilaris, but can be used for hyperpigmentation and strawberry skin, too.
All of Biolite’s high-tech camping gear is on-sale through September 4. The grapefruit-sized AlpenGlow 500 is our best camping lantern, which our in-house outdoorsman Jeremy Rellosa says effectively illuminated his camp cooking area while still creating a “calming” effect.
L.L.Bean’s Labor Day sale began this morning. Most of the deals are on last season’s styles, including this convenient cross-body with Maine’s first flag on it.
Here’s a compact, wipe-clean lunchbox that’s on sale in three whimsical pattern.
This isn’t a very deep discount, but it is awfully adorable.
