There have been several sales on baby gear so far this month, but nothing has really grabbed my attention — that is, until today. I’ve found several actually good deals on toys and apparel at Target and Hanna Andersson. For the adults in the room, I also found a microcurrent skin-care device that works just as well as the NuFace for even less, a pie dish from Le Creuset, and classic Adidas sweatpants. And as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage, including five subscriber-only deals every Friday.
Lots of Adidas staples are on sale at Amazon — including, of course, the brand’s triple-stripe track pants.
Amazon’s curvaceous portable speaker, the Echo Pop, is over 40 percent off in lavender and teal.
Did you also see that TikTok where a group of 30-somethings watched, transfixed, as their friend vacuumed up a spill during a house party? This is that vacuum, which handles both solid dirt and liquids.
This deeply discounted Longchamp unzips along the middle to transform into a weekend bag-size tote.
You’ll find even more ultrasweet children’s clothes on sale at Hanna Andersson for its fall sale. If you’re not quite ready for full-on Halloween, ease into the season with these pumpkin pajamas.
Another pair of layerable leggings is never a bad idea, especially when they’re this cute.
Here are some nonbasic basics: Socks!
This backpack will actually protect your stuff on rainy days. It’s woven from recycled ripstop nylon that’s water-resistant and quick-drying, and it can go through the washing machine if it falls victim to a coffee spill.
Prep your kitchen for pie-making season with some on-sale Le Creuset bakeware that comes in a rainbow of color choices.
Use this teeny cocotte for single servings of pot pies, cobblers, and everything in between.
If you were eyeing Molly Baz’s collaboration with Crate & Barrel when it launched in May, everything is now on sale — like these kindercore salt and pepper mills. (Note that everything is final sale.)
I’ve been wooed by this egg-yolk-yellow apron (which is available in a neutral cream hue, too).
Samsung’s Frame smart TV (that looks like a painting when not in use) is on sale in every size, but you’ll get the best deal on the largest versions.
